One of Denver's oldest carriage companies, Irish Rose Drafts uses different breeds of draft horses, notably Belgians, Clydesdales, Percherons and Suffolk, to pull its signature white carriages through downtown and LoDo. Popular for proposals, anniversaries, Valentine's Day, date nights and other celebrations, the company's horses and classic European carriages are also frequently booked for weddings. Most rides come in 20, 30 or 50 minute times. Snuggling together in a carriage is an especially romantic way to view Denver's holiday lights in winter, and look for specials just for Valentine's Day. This year there are mini and deluxe Valentine rides, plus a grand ride option. There are also three types of rides specifically for proposals, designed with stops where you can get out and pop the question. Management is dedicated to providing the best care for its horses, so they're not sent out if weather is deemed dangerous for them.

- Romantic Things to Do: "Pick up for rides reserved in advance is at 16th and Lawrence in front of Gusto at the Tabor Center. Most rides are in the evening hours."
- Best for Romantic Things to Do Because: Clip-clopping through the streets of LoDo and downtown Denver in a beautiful carriage offers an old-fashioned take on romance.
