Down in the Florida Keys

If you’re looking for something little off the beaten track, perhaps a bit quirky and outside the mainstream, charter a bus and take a trip down the Florida Keys. Cruising down the Overseas Highway with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coaches or school bus
chartered from Charter Bus Florida is an easy, fuss free, fun filled way to see the Florida Keys. This laid back group of islands connected by an immense overwater highway has been attracting those who enjoy its easy pace of life and relaxed atmosphere since the time of naturalist John James Audubon.
Probably the single biggest reason most come to Florida Keys is for the scuba diving and snorkeling. There are numerous reefs, shipwrecks and artificial reefs in the Florida Keys, all of which are readily accessible to the charter bus visitor. Just drive up with your charter bus at the dive center of your choice, gear up and start diving. Some notable dive spots are U.S.S. Eagle in Islamorada, a 287 foot freighter that was sunk as an artificial reef, Christ of the Abyss and Molasses Reef in Key Largo, Sombrero Reef and Thunderbolt in Marathon. Different dive spots will suit divers of different skill levels, from the beginner snorkeler to the advanced technical deep diver. If you’re a group of scuba divers who prefers using their own gear, then chartering a bus to visit the Florida Keys for diving makes perfect sense, allowing you to carry your dive gear along without having to worry about space.
Although most come for the sun, sand and surf in the Florida Keys, charter bus visitors will be pleasantly surprised to learn that there is a thriving arts and craft community in the Keys, as well as several museums and art galleries. The Ernest Hemingway House in Key West is popular with charter bus tourists, where the Nobel Prize winning author lived and worked for a decade in the 30s. If you want to try your hand at craft and pottery, visit the Honest Works Island Pottery Co. in Truman Avenue. Artists Russell and Lever create their own style of island pottery, and also offer classes.
The Florida Keys have long had a Cuban influence, so it comes as no surprise to learn that food here tends to have a strong Caribbean influence, and is mostly seafood. If you’re taking a charter bus down to Florida Keys, stop by Buzzard’s Roost in Key Largo, Mile Marker 88 and Bob’s Bunz in Islamorada, Seven Fish and the Half Shell in Key West are notable places to have a memorable meal for your charter bus group. After hours, drinking spots abound, some on the beach, others located a little further inland.
When planning a charter bus visit to Florida, give Charter Bus Florida a call to find out how they can help you with their fleet of charter vehicles that can cater to any size group, and friendly, personalized service.
