Rocking it at Rock City, Georgia

At times, the most interesting places to visit are not located in some city that is easily found. Instead, there are beautiful places of interest located by the side of a road, hidden from plain sight. One of these would beRock City, a roadside attraction located near Ruby Falls on Lookout Mountain.

Eventful Shows for Special Seasons

There are many events and shows organized for bus rental visitors who arrive at Rock City. For paid admissions to the garden, visitors can enjoy daily bird shows that showcases birds of prey. If you were to visit during Fall, you get to enjoy this awesome maze made from crops of corn located in the valley below the gardens dubbed as The Enchanted Maize. This is an event where you get lost in the maze and you find your way out by answering trivia questions placed at some posts in the field of corn. Other than having fun getting lost in the maze, there are also hay rides and other activities as well at the site.

Snorkel and Explore Key West Reef and Island

Key West Reef is a protected marine sanctuary and if you are only in Key West for the first time and is the kind of person to fall in love with nature easily, then our advice would be to make a quick private bus charter stop at Reef Express Snorkeling tour. Not only will you be exposed to marine life under the sea but the tour serves as an educational tool for people who are interested in coral reefs. For most of our Florida private bus customers, making a stop here is one of the best things that they could have done for themselves during their visit to Key West.
The water is amazingly gorgeous and you can literally look into the water and see the waterbed. Even from afar, the schools of fishes and sparkling and enticing coral reefs will jump out at you. If you have a waterproof camera, please bring it along and snap away! You will be bringing home such amazing memories with you.
First, take the boat out for a quick tour around the island and then hit the shores for snorkeling with family and friends. Some might be worried that if they get too far away from the boat when snorkeling, they might end up being left behind. Please note that the people managing these snorkeling tours are extremely professional and experienced. A headcount is done very regularly so that they know who is where all the time.
Is it suitable for the little ones? With your guidance and support, we are sure they will manage well on their own. Snorkeling and diving are two different types of activities - snorkeling is fine for little kids as supervision is given, you need licence and better understanding for diving adventures.
Key West is a small island located slightly off the Straits of Florida. It is merely ninety miles from Cuba and is at the southernmost part of Florida Keys. There are some awesome reviews about holidays, bus charter vacations and tour deals on the internet and we encourage everyone to do some research before heading over. The small and quaint original neighborhood in key West is a place appropriately called ‘Old Town’ and if you are here in Key West, make it a point to stop by and make friends with the locals. They are warm, friendly and do not mind sharing their stories with you. Enjoy the very classic-looking bungalows (you don’t really find homes like these anymore especially if you live in a busy downtown area) and we were bowled over with guest mansions for rent.

The Gator Par of Florida

What do alligators and boats have in common? Not much, actually, but at Gator Park, you are in for some fun time when it comes to alligators and boats. You will need to rent a private Florida bus and bring the whole family there to experience firsthand what it is like to journey into the deep Florida Everglades and learn about the world of alligators, turtles, snakes and fish, as well as not forgetting the birds and some other creatures that you do not normally get to see if you are living in the city. This is surely a wonderful trip to bring your family and let your children learn about wildlife in their own natural world.

Gator Park is also popular for their Everglades Airboat Ride and when you take a tour on their boat ride, you will discover the natural habitats of the alligators, turtles, snakes and fish, as well as the birds of the air. First of all, you get to get up really close to the alligators at the park (not the ones you would spot during the boat ride) - so close that they even encourage you to put your hands in the mouth of the gators! Next, you will get to go on a boat ride. Many first time visitors to the Gator Park in a rented Florida private bus find it so relaxing as they go on the boat ride because the tour guides made sure that the boat ride is slow enough for everyone to enjoy the view of the canal as well as not to frighten the little ones who are also in the boat at the same time. The slow ride also enables the visitors to be able to take photos of the wildlife in their natural habitat. The experienced tour guides never fails to help the boat riders to spot alligators – big and small ones as well as turtles and birds that they don’t normally get to see elsewhere.

After that, the boat may then pick up a little on the speed to bring visitors to the river of grass to “catch” glimpses of raccoons, whitetail deer and wild boar and it is not everyday that you get to see animals like these, so be sure to have your cameras ready to snap away once you spot them (or rather, once the tour guide spots them and lets everyone know). Don’t forget to visit the wildlife park too, where you will get to see chickens, peacocks and the highlight of the trip – the alligator wrestling show. Besides wrestling with the alligator, they will also bring out an alligator which you can hold and take a picture with, for a minimal fee. The trip to the Gator Park will be one that the whole family will enjoy, especially when you have the comfort and the privilege of going there and returning home in a private rented bus.

A ghostly kind of tour

If you are the bold, courageous and fearless type, we are quite sure that a tour to a cemetery is something that you would look forward to. And no, we are not making fun of those who have passed on, but at Bonaventure Cemetery, it is a place where visitors would go sightseeing and enjoy the beauty of the cemetery and its surrounding. Find it difficult to believe? Well, we “dare” you to rent a Georgia bus and get the bus driver to send you and your friends who are just as bold and courageous as you are, to the Bonaventure Cemetery and find out for yourself and see if you would actually encounter a spirit or two while you are there.

The Bonaventure Cemetery is open to the public from 8 o’clock in the morning until 5 o’clock in the evening. As you walk around the cemetery after being dropped off by the Georgia rented bus driver (who will always return at the appointed time to pick you and your friends), perhaps you will realize that it is not such an eerie place after all. Sure, they have statues and monuments at some of the gravesites, but these are quite common sights at any cemetery, so there isn’t anything to be afraid of when you see such statues or monuments at this cemetery.

For the extra adventurous type, you can always rent a Georgia bus to go to the Bonaventure Cemetery for the “After Hours” tours – they have two tours that they have after 5pm. Opened to the public, this tour allows visitors to “hang around” the cemetery for two hours with stories of the history of Bonaventure’s plantation to stories about some of them who are laid to rest there. The second kind of tour that they offer is for private groups where you will have a tour hosted by Shannon Scott at the cemetery followed by dinner at Sister’s of the New South. However, this “Dinner and A Cemetery” tour is only available on weekends from 6pm to 8pm and prior reservations are required.

Whether you choose to go and visit the Bonaventure Cemetery during the day or the night in your Georgia rented bus, you can be sure of one thing – your bus driver will be waiting to pick you and your friends up after you are through with your sightseeing or tour on the cemetery. Don’t forget to check out some of the highlights at the cemetery – little Gracie, Christ at the Portal, the Jewish grave area are some interesting spots to look out for while you are there!

Ship Ahoy!

For any pirate junkie, a trip down memory lane at the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum will be a great trip to plan for. Rent a private bus and bring your group of “pirate” friends for a time of just reliving the adventures of a true pirate!
Having arrived at the St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum in your Florida private rented bus, there is no need for you to hurry through your tour at the museum. All you need to do is tell the bus driver what time to pick you and your friends and you can be sure the moment you walk out of the museum, he is there waiting to take everyone home.
The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum was started by Pat Croce - a huge fan of pirates and the museum was originally located at Front Stree, Key West Floriday before it was moved to St. Augustine and reopened in 2010. At The St. Augustine Pirate & Treasure Museum, you will experience a wonderful interactive journey through the years of high seas adventures - dating as far as 300 years ago. It has been said that this museum has one of the largest authentic collections of pirate artifacts in the world.
Upon entering The St. Augustine Pirate Treasure Museum, it would seem as though you have just been transported into a totally different world altogether. The journey through the museum allows you to feel, smell, hear and literally have a taste of what it is like to be a pirate. What you see and experience in the museum is as though you are a pirate yourself! Oh, and the feeling to be able to see up close the magnificent artifacts and treasures from those pirate days is quite indescribable - such joy and such ecstasy!
Some of the artifacts that are displayed are Captain Thomas Tew’s Treasure Chest, the Journal of Captain Kidd’s Final Voyage, some real shipwreck treasure from the Florida Division of Historical Resources and many more. The Captain Thomas Tew’s Treasure chest is said to be 400 years old now, and also the only authentic pirate treasure chest ever showcased in the world, weighing at least a hundred and fifty pounds - empty, that is. One cannot imagine how heavy it would be when it is filled up with treasures.
And if you feel like you simply can’t get enough of pirates and their lives, before you hop on the rented bus to make your way home, be sure to visit the“Treasure Shoppe” at the museum where you can purchase some items to bring home to start your own, well, pirate collection.
