Horse & Carriage Tour in Historic Wilmington, NC

This past week we went to Wilmington, NC to take a horse and carriage tour in the historic district. It was a lot of fun. Katie and I love horses and have always wanted to take a carriage ride. Our guide took us on the old home tour. We learned about open brick fences. It's not to make it look fancy, it was for air flow. We never knew that :). The homes do not have their original iron gates and fences. They were used during the Civil War to make cannon balls! I also learned that the families slept on their porches during the summer because of the heat. This carriage ride was fun to do.
