Wine Hunting in Baltimore

There are many ways to have your wine trail or wine hunting adventure. First off, you can have apersonal wine hunt on your own. All you need to do is to do your own research and plan your own itinerary. The downside to doing that is that you don’t have ‘insider secrets’. Comments and feedback from Yelp and Tripadvisor can only go so far. The real wine lovers are not necessarily the ones who interact online, you see.
The other way to find great wine in Baltimore with a rented charter bus is to hire a personal guide. There are many of them all around Baltimore and their services are available quite affordably. Hiring a personal wine tour guide is great if you have a group of wine lovers who is going to be doing the wine tasting group tour with a charter bus with you.

Inspiring Insight at Baltimore Museum of Industry

Baltimore is a city built and grew as an industrial hub and at the Baltimore Museum of Industry, you will get to dive straight right into the industrial revolution. Visitors have all raved and said that they learned so much about the revolution and began to understand Baltimore and its residents a whole lot more after that. Baltimore Bus Rentals have been lucky enough to have served as a Baltimore transportation company for our customers when they made their visit to Baltimore Museum of Industry.
What can you learn from the museum? When you make your way to old cannery, where this tourist destination is location, you will discover a world of various types of manufacturing from earlier parts of the 20th century. These industries helped shape not just Baltimore or Maryland, but have a huge role in shaping America as a country. The kids are going to fall absolutely heads over heels in love with the hands-on section during your Baltimore bus rentals vacation. The olden-type equipments have been repaired and refurbished to perfect working order so that you can give the equipment a spin. There are many other interesting artifacts to learn up on too so, we are quite certain you are going to have the time of your life investigating and exploring them all.
Many of the exhibits are dedicated to Baltimore as a city that has grown by leaps and bounds because of the manufacturing sector but let’s just say that the exhibit that truly took away the spotlight was The Baltimore. The Baltimore is the last, single oldest-surviving steam tugboat. You will not find another one like it in America. In fact, the tugboat has been named as a part of the National Historic Landmark.
When our Baltimore bus rentals customers say that it is an interesting museum, they mean it. Definitely not your conventional art and exhibit museum, for sure. And we think elderly people might really love the place because they might remember even more about the old vehicles and perhaps, store goods and machinery might tug at their heartstrings a whole lot more too.
Baltimore’s Museum of Industry is very well-maintained and run with multiple rooms featuring specific topics or industry. For example, you would find one room focusing on just bakery stuff, and then another showcases auto garage materials, and then another with exhibits from the garment manufacturing sector from the older times.
To say that the Baltimore bus rentals museum is fascinating is not at all an understatement so, head over and discover a world of stuff you thought you would never want to know about. Get ready to be blown over.

Educational Trip to Baltimore’s National Aquarium

The National Aquarium at 501 E Pratt St, Inner Harbor, Baltimore is said to be one of the world’s best aquariums and they have three pavilions that exhibits amazing creatures and they also have a living collection that include more than sixteen thousand animals of different species and marine life. This is a great place for group tours as well as for visitors who come visiting the city for the first time. If you are planning a trip for your some of your friends who would be visiting soon, why not rent a Baltimore bus and bring them to this magnificent place?

The National Aquarium also offers their visitors membership (especially for those who intend to return here again and again) because it would be of a greater value for money and it will also benefit the animal research and conservation, among some of the other benefits that comes with the membership. However, for you and your friends who will make this your only trip to the National Aquarium in the Baltimore rental bus, you are not obligated to purchase the membership. Dolphin shows are a daily event at the aquarium, so be sure to check the time of the shows when you arrive at the National Aquarium, so that you won’t miss it. When you walk through the aquarium, you will not feel like you don’t know anything about the creatures that are on display because they do provide some information on each exhibit.
Just like zoos or other aquariums, the National Aquarium would be expected to be crowded on weekends and on days when they may have special events, so it is not surprising at all if you happen to be there on a weekend with your friends and you find the place crowded and packed with many other people too. Hence, if you want to beat the crowd, and since your friends are already on a holiday visiting you, it would be a good idea to rent the Baltimore bus on a weekday and make a trip to the National Aquarium instead. That way, you and your friends get to enjoy all the exhibits and displays at the aquarium with minimal crowd and distractions. And if you get hungry after visiting the aquarium, you can always request for the Baltimore rental bus driver to bring you and your friends for lunch or dinner at one of the restaurants near the National Aquarium.

Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum

The sound of train whistling as they come close to the station is something that children would probably get excited about. To be honest, we suspect even adults would get excited but they prefer to keep their excitement under the cover of being “cool”, hence adults would probably not express their excitement as much as a child would when they hear the whistling train coming near. Trains are such a majestic, awesome thing and if you love trains, then a trip to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum in a rented bus is something that you cannot miss.

Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum exhibits a huge collection of train related items, a model railroad as well as an operating replica of The Tom Thumb, which is also the first ever locomotive ever built here. Give yourself at least a few hours if you are planning to come here to visit in a rented Baltimore bus. If you have kids, you must bring them to visit this place because they will absolutely love this museum! One of the things that younger children will get to enjoy while visiting the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum is the train tables where they can play as well as go on rides on the trains.

The train rides for visitors are on Wednesday to Sunday during the months of April right up to December and it is only available on weekends in the month of January. However, the tickets are on a first-come-first-serve basis and their train schedules vary from time to time, especially during special events and the holiday seasons. You can always call them up to find out if they have the train rides available on the day you intend to visit before you make a booking to with the Baltimore bus rental company. They have different types of train rides that you can choose from too. One thing you can be sure is that whichever train ride that you would choose for your kids, they will not complain because they will be too busy having so much fun riding on the train to complain about anything at all – well, perhaps the only complaint that they will have is when the train ride is over and they still want to ride. 

From now until 2015, Baltimore rented bus passengers will get to see the special exhibits at the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Museum on the role of trains during the Civil War. As you tour the museum, you will also get to see many different types of train models as well as an area where they also exhibit station clocks with many of them still in good working condition. So, wait no longer, come on aboard the rented bus and let’s go-a-choo-choo right away!

Lexington Market (Baltimore)

The markets in each country, each state and city bear their own unique mark and the markets, especially public ones like Lexington in Baltimore, here are no different. Travelers will know to hit the public markets in the city if they want to have a taste of local flavor. At the center of the Lexington market lies a very old-fashioned untouched scene, and it is right here that people will get to mingle around with the local people, learn about their culture and see what everyday life is like for the folks right here in Baltimore. Make your way here during your Baltimore charter bus rental vacation to explore the one hundred and forty different vendors selling all sorts of unique items. Baltimore rental bus visitors will find themselves poring over everything from ice-cream to crabcakes, from pizzas to kitchen towels.
The electric atmosphere usually peaks around lunch hour when folks from surrounding neighborhoods and foreign tourists pour in to join in on the festivities. The market also serves as a stage for musicians who wishes to entertain and showcase their they always believe, who knows where a talent scout might be looking for talents.
The market is no ordinary farmers market as we can see as they host large events from time to time like the Preakness Crab Derby. The derby is an old Baltimore tradition and visitors are encouraged to make their way in the party bus, charter bus, school bus or coach charter to join in on these events as they will get the chance to see an experience, first-hand, a very old Baltimore tradition which may be hanging onto its last few decades.
February, for the folks of Baltimore who throng to the Lexington open market regularly, is Black History Month. For every day of the month of February, there are dances, songs, gospels, blues and jazz music wafting through the air. Often times, teachers and speakers chooses to educate tourists and vacationers about the history of the blacks with the intention of sharing a part of their history and tradition with others. This is a much treasured tradition, we assure you, and you may not get to see this kind of Baltimore bus rental event anywhere else in the country or the world.
And in March every year, we have something called ‘Lunch With The Elephants’ which quite literally getting up close and personal with these gentle giants. While munching on your favorite pizza during the mini bus stop, watch or help feed the wonderful creatures their lunch that consist of thousands of oranges, apples, lettuce, bananas, pears, and carrots.
And if you are in Baltimore in May, you might event get to experience the unique jockey blue crabs race called Preakness Celebrity Blue Crab Derby. You don’t get any quirkier than that. But that is for another story.
In the meantime, we invite you to hit the ‘contact’ us button for a prompt quote on the charter bus, party bus, bus rental, mini bus or school bus packages that we have to offer and we hope to be at your service in the very near future.
