Cinderella Carriage Rides

Posted on December 20

Looking for something holidayish to do this season? How about taking a Cinderella Carriage Ride at the Fountains at Roseville? The upscale shopping center, located at Roseville Parkway and Galleria Boulevard in Roseville, is pretty any time of year, but holiday lights give it an extra-special glimmer. Why not tour it via horse and carriage? Rides are $4 per person and take place Friday, Dec. 21 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Dec. 22 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Afterward, do some shopping—for others or for yourselves. Stores are open until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and until 7 p.m. on Sundays. Favorites include White House Black Market, Sur La Table and DSW. Then, grab a bite to eat; you have plenty of places to choose from including California Pizza Kitchen, Yard House and Zocalo. I know it’s cold, but if you are bundled up, stop in Mirabella Gelato for a sweet treat. I wasn’t a gelato fan until I tried the gelato at this place. While we’re on the subject of bundling up and cold weather, please note: The snow in the picture accompanying this blog is for dramatic effect only. Don’t expect snow on your ride, though that would be fun. Rain is a different story. If the weather is frightful, call (916) 786-2679 because heavy rains will cancel the rides. But don’t fret, inclement weather won’t cancel the shopping!

What: Cinderella Carriage Rides
When: Dec. 21–22
Where: Fountains at Roseville
