We feel that the feedback and suggestions from our charter bus FL customers who regularly organize school field trips for their students will be useful to you.
Kids usually fall in head over heels in love with Hoggetowne Medieval Faire....simply because it is so different from all other ‘boring’ tours around museums and historical tourist attractions. They are held, every year, on two consecutive weekends so, if you miss one, you can always book a place for yourself the following weekend. Event organizers promotes their School Day annually and the reception is always overwhelming and if you book a place early, you stand a chance to win free education guide which can be used during the trip. Unique handicraft shops offer charming jewelry and hand-made items for sale and it makes perfect souvenirs for family and friends who are unable to join you for this charter bus FL exciting trip. You can bring along your own snacks, food and drinks but what they offer, which is medieval cooking, is far more interesting.
If that isn’t what you are looking for, there is always Rogers Farm and Corn Maze. The farm is family-owned and provides for hours on end of worthy entertainment and they are geared towards younger children. Teaching kids about farm life and nature is fun this way. What more are they treated to? How about a tractor pulling the children around the huge farm? Without fail, it always incites loud laughter and incessant squealing amongst the kids. Surprisingly, there are lot of animals in the farm’s petting zoo so, bring the kids over for a thrilling time getting to know the farm animals. After that, let them hop onto a giant jumping pillow and find their way through a fun mini-corn maze and try out an ingenious device called the Corn Launcher.
Set at an affordable rate, these family-friendly activities are designed, without a doubt, with kids in mind. Their aim is to let kids have some fun while learning something new about the world that they live in. Minus all the gadgets, electronic devices or internet. It will open up a whole new world to them, we reckon.

Visiting the Old Jail

Many would assume that you would expect paranormal activities or happenings in cemeteries, but did you know that such happenings also exist in old jails? For those who are brave and enjoy visiting “spooky” places, there are a lot of places that one can do that. But, if you want an extraordinary kind of experience, then visiting the Old Jail at 167 San Marco Avenue, St Augustine, Florida is just place that you might want to consider going with your friends on a Florida bus charter.

If you have always been fascinated with the supernatural and paranormal things in life, and you are also one of those really daring ones, why not plan a trip with your friends (if they are as daring as you are, that is) to take up a Ghost Tour at the Old Jail this coming Halloween? Sounds like a crazy, ghostly idea? Of course it is – and it will be one that you and your friends will remember for the rest of your lives. The Ghost Tour at the Old Jail is available on Friday and Saturday nights, from 7pm until 10pm, but advanced reservations or bookings are required, so be sure to check their website for details in making a reservation for the tour. The Ghost tour takes about one hour and twenty minutes, and they do not encourage participation from those who are 13 years old and below due to the nature of the tour. They also encourage visitors or participants to wear comfortable shoes as they will be doing a lot of walking during the tour.

If you prefer not to have a scary, ghostly tour at the Old Jail, they also welcome visitors during the day, but we don’t guarantee that it is less scary or less spooky during the day. You and your friends will, however, learn about the history of the Old Jail and some of the notorious criminals who have met their Creator here. Also, don’t be too shocked or surprised if you do hear some weird sounds as you tour the place. They say that lingering spirits are literally there to make their presence felt. Don’t forget to make a booking for a FL charter bus for this trip to the Old Jail with your friends – you will be glad that you did, especially if some of your friends are spooked out after the tour, and they can’t wait for you to get your car key out so that they can climb back into the car immediately and head home.

St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay Speedboat Tours

In one short sentence, it is easy to describe the experience of speeding away in your very own speedboat - a once in a lifetime experience. The self-driven speedboat gives you absolute control over your own vehicle. The speedboat tour is narrated throughout the fifteen miles which starts off both from Tampa Bay or Florida’s St. Petersburg, so pick your start-off point and get the FL charter bus driver to bring you and your family and friends over for a chance to take a two hour tour of Florida’s gorgeous coastline.
The tour takes charter bus rental visitors around to popular coastal sites like the serene Tampa bay, the jaw-droppingly beautiful Sunshine Skyway Bridge and also all around to Florida’s much-appreciated National Wildlife Refuges and Fort de Soto Park. If perchance you are in luck, beautiful sea creatures will greet you during the tour and they include the likes of Bottlenose Dolphins, Manatees, Tortoises and of course, not to mention the fact that the sky will be filled with gorgeous local variety of birds.
Some may be worried if a license or specific experience is needed to operate a speedboat...the owners and operators assures us that it is completely possible and easy to navigate your very own F13 mini speed boat...and a very useful USCG-approved life jacket is not merely provided, it is compulsory for users of these speedboats to put them on before getting on the boats. Visitors will also be given driving guides before and during their tour.
The chance to take over the wheel of your very own mini speed boat comes extremely rarely if you stay and work in a downtown city area, so, we strongly recommend taking the opportunity to speed things up in the waters of Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg when the chance presents itself. It is, very much, a chance of a lifetime.
Our Florida charter bus rental customers have all rave reviews about their experience here, all saying that despite initially feeling a little anxious about their own ability to handle a speedboat, the witty guide offered much assurance as they guide them all along in their own speedboat. They were attentive and listened well to their concerns. It helped that the thirteen foot mini speedboats were comfortable and stable, on top of making the visitors feel very safe. Each of these powerful speedboats can sit up to three persons at any one time and feels pretty much like a car.
So, throttle on, folks, who are going to head over for the speedboat tour of your own and in the meantime, please do give Charter Bus FL a call right now to find out more about our FL charter bus rental rates for your group vacation, holidays or gatherings. we look forward to hearing from you very soon.

Romancing Under The Moon Courtesy Of St. Augustine Lighthouse and Museum

Alright – we all know summer is approaching and fun in the sun is something to be expected, but no one ever said that you can’t have fun under the moon too, right? If you agree that summer fun time can also be something that’s under the moon , then charter a bus to the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum for a romantic rendezvous under the moon.

St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum is located at 81 Lighthouse Ave, Saint Augustine, FL 32084 – a spot that your rented bus driver will easily find, especially if this is a place he’s always been sending his passengers for visits. Getting lost is something that will not happen when you travel in a rented bus with an experienced charter bus FL driver.

Visits to lighthouses are fun – for adults and kids alike. And it becomes even more interesting when you charter a bus to the lighthouses, and in this case, the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum. What makes this lighthouse extra special is that they have different types of guided tours for different types of groups – such as the “Dark of the Moon” tour where you will hear of stories of mystical and paranormal encounters of people who worked, lived or visited the Lighthouse and then you are given the opportunity to explore on your own too, “Behind the Scenes” tour presents visitors the chance to access into parts of the Historic Light Station that is not offered with general admission, “Sunset Moonrise” tour only happens once a month as the name suggests, you get to enjoy a sunset and full moonrise atop the Lighthouse, and last not but least, the “Lost Ships Tour” that allows you to one and half hour private tour with one of the Lighthouse’s archaeologists.

Whether you want to take your girlfriend there for a romantic rendezvous, or have a group of friends come with you on a trip to check out the “ghost stories” of the past at the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Museum, you will not regret making a trip here in the chartered bus. Even people who have fear of heights have walked right up to the top of the Lighthouse and totally enjoyed the beautiful scenery from atop! The steps leading to the top of the Lighthouse is not steep and are pretty wide too, so you don’t feel as though you are being squeezed into tiny flight of steps.

So, what are you waiting for? While most people will be busy planning their summer vacations with fun in the sun kind of activities, why not make this summer a little different – charter a bus and make it a fun under the moon outing for a change!
