St. Mary’s City Historical Sites

Despite the name of “St. Mary’s City”, this pioneer town is less of a city, and more of a collection ofindoor and outdoor historical exhibits. However, because of this, St. Mary’s City has lots of quaint places to visit so you should not miss this chance to take your charter bus to this destination.
This peninsula features a 500-mile shoreline where you can find 5 water-based state parkswater trails, and many places to fish, camp, hike and enjoy seafood. On top of all of nature to see, St. Mary’s City is Maryland’s birthplace, with many colonial sites, maritime heritage and beautiful rural landscapes.

Schifferstadt - Priceless Gem at the Heart of Frederick County of Maryland

When speaking of Maryland, the staple city would be Maryland but did you know that there are other historical sites to explore in a lower profile city and neighborhood like Frederick Maryland. One good example we strongly recommend to our Maryland bus charter customers and visitors would be a special German inspired stone abode which was built in 1758 - Schifferstadt.

A look back into Germany’s history in America

Schifferstadt was built at 1110 Rosemont Ave., Frederick MD and this is where it continues to stand today. The home was a special project for German immigrant farmer Josef Brunner after the purchase of the 303 acres land. The piece of land where Schifferstadt stands today was also known as ‘Tasker’s Chance’.

Paw Paw Tunnel of Cumberland

There are many marvelous works in this world and some of them defies common sense and logic. But that is what makes them wonders of the world which includes unexplainable sites like The Great Pyramids of GizaHanging Gardens of Babylon and Statue of Zeus at Olympia. We are talking about an ambitious sculptor who was traveling around in 432 B.C. who started his work on the Statue of Zeus and worked on it for 12 years.
For our Maryland charter bus customers who are looking for our very own Maryland ‘wonder of the world’, there is one right here in Cumberland, Maryland. Paw Paw Tunnel. Although quite incomparable to the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, it is still a magnificent feat. You have to consider the fact that it was an absolute engineering feat when these men were armed with nothing more than shovels, picks, mules and maybe a couple of dynamites.

Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater

It isn’t hard trying to find a good place for dinner or entertainment in Maryland or even Hagerstown, but to find a place that offers BOTH at the same time and at an affordable rate, it’s pretty hard. But if looking for such bus charter Maryland location is up on your agenda, then you need to head over to the Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater.
Locating the exact location of this charter bus Maryland tourist attraction can be hard as it is ‘hidden’ behind Hagerstown’s City Hall, being a part of the building but ask around and you will find them. It is hidden behind Little Heiskell which is coincidentally and fondly known as the town’s little mascot. You will see why when you are here to see for yourself.
We found out a little about the place before heading over, basically because we wanted to know what we were in for and partly because of curiosity. We were surprised to learn that the theater was opened only as early as 1985 by Bob Hagerman and with Bruce Levin as a dedicated partner because it is run by different owners now. The operations of the theater has been taken over by Loretta and Jeff Czerbinski as of 2009. No matter who took over, Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater is considered a hidden gem by the locals. It is the kind of place they bring their partners in for a date or have their friends over for a bonding session.
Since its inception, they have been known to produce exceptional plays while serving up an amazing array of food to their guests. After a long day of touring and exploring Hagerstown during your charter bus Maryland vacation with family and friends, we are sure you will be more than ready to let your hair down and be entertained while dining in complete luxury. Depending on what is up on the night that you are there (head over to their website,, for more information about the shows and schedule.
The producers are known, ever since they began operations, to come up with classics like Oklahoma, Annie Get Your Gun, South Pacific and not to mention the evergreen The Sound of Music.
The theater dinner is somewhat less formal than we have expected. It was comfortable, quite casual and the servers were absolutely, immaculately attentive to what we needed during our charter bus Maryland visit. We could have possibly gotten a bit luckier, I guess.
So, head on over if you are in this corner of Maryland. We are sure you are going to have a splendid time with your loved ones.

Burnside’s Bridge (Sharpsburg Maryland)

There is so much history and culture in Maryland that it is hard to name one single tourist attraction as ‘the best’ but as far as historically-significant site is concerned, Burnside’s Bridge is one of the most understated and under-promoted historical site in Maryland. The bridge is located along Dunker Church Road in Sharpsburg MD and is definitely worth seeing because it has everything to do with the Antietam battle. It is where you feel the reality of the battle and come watch the audio tour that guides you through the exhibits. In other words, the tour will help bring the Antietam battle to live.
The bridge was initially built to improve connecting roads between Sharpsburg and Washington County whereby it was reported that there were fourteen similar bridges commissioned to be built for similar reasons. It is also important to note that the design of the bridges were initially thought out by one of the most famous bridge designer of that era, John Weaver. With his ideas, the Burnside’s Bridge’s construction successfully completed in 1836. Interestingly, the arched bridge was constructed by local farmers which helped them earn a living, serving as an important source of income at that point of time. It was also important to the farmers that this bridge was built because the farmers can then take their farming produce and livestock across the other side for sale. After a couple of years of hard work and three thousand and two hundred dollars of spending, the farmers had the opportunity of bridging their community with other communities around them.
Some Maryland bus charter visitors might also like to know that the bridge is also referred to with other names with ‘Rohrbach’s Bridge’ being one of the more popular one. Rohrbach is a local farmer who used to live in the community.
This bus charter Maryland attraction, however, isn’t all that suitable for little kids as they may not be interested in the Battle of Antietam and may end up being a little bored. But if they are old enough to find history interesting, take some time to explain the events leading up to the battle to them and they might get more into the sites and tours.
After the war, the US government acquired the bridge and maintained it as an important tourist destination and historical site. Getting on the bridge on foot is fine but vehicles are no longer permitted to be on it. Till this very day, people come to the bridge just to take some stunning photographs. So, be sure to include this site as one of the sites to see during your bus charter Maryland trip.

Let’s go a-sailing

Planning for a romantic rendezvous? Or are you thinking of making your wedding anniversary this year extra special? Perhaps you are thinking of planning a unique marriage proposal for your longtime girlfriend, but you are still not sure what to do – hang right on, we have just the perfect idea for you. In fact, whatever the reason, whatever the season, spending a day sailing on a 1920s majestic and magnificent sailboat is a superb thing to do – yes, even a marriage proposal is possible! Come, get on one of those Maryland charter buses and head on over to 101 North Harbor Rd, St. Michaels and set sail on Selina II for your romantic adventure.

Limited to just 6 passengers each time, Selina II sails daily from April through October. Having just 6 passenger each time for every sail makes it a perfect moment for everyone because they want every passenger to enjoy a personal and up close experience on the sailboat. With a friendly captain and her first mate taking you and your partner out to sail, you are both in for a wonderful experience like never before. They have different kinds of cruises for different groups of people, so you may want to first find out what are the tours that they have before you go. If you just want to experience what it feels like to be on a sailboat, sign up for their day sails, but if you want something romantic and private, they do have what they call their “Champagne Sunset Cruise” and “Moonlight Sails”. Just by the name of the cruises alone, you’d know that it is not just a normal sail. Or if you intend to bring some friends with you for a birthday celebration, why not sign up for their wine tasting and beer tasting excursions? After all, you already have the chartered bus driver waiting to bring you home, so even if you do join the wine and beer tasting cruise, you don’t have to worry about driving after you have had your drinks on the sailboat.

Once you have set sail on Selina II, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful view of the sky and the sea. And if you are keen, you can even try your hands on being part of the sailboat “crew”. However you want your sailing experience to be, the captain and her first mate will accommodate to your request. Happy and satisfied customers are what they strive for - just like your Maryland charter bus company!

Not Your Regular Ape Adventure At Go Ape

We have to admit this - sometimes, if not usually, it is not easy to organize an outing where everyone will enjoy the activities involved and have fun. Different expectations, different age group and different personalities makes it all the more difficult at times. Hence, one of the best activity that will get everyone going and involved with would almost be an outdoor one. Go Ape is considered to be a great place for the young and the old - it would be quite impossible to hear anyone complaining after all the fun that they are expected to have at Go Ape. So, gather your friends, gather your family members and pile them up onto a charter bus that will take all of you to the jungle where the fun begins!
Tree top adventures would be one of the closest and best description of what Go Ape is all about - try imagining Tarzan swinging from one tree to another. Go Ape is located at 6129 Needwood Lake Drive, Rockville, MD 20855, and it is not too difficult to find, especially if you have a very experienced chartered Maryland rental bus driver to take you there. When you arrive at Go Ape, you will be pleasantly surprised to find that they have great obstacle courses for almost every age group to try and experience. If you are bringing children, they have to be at least 4 feet 7 inches tall and 10 years of age in order to qualify for any of the obstacle challenges available. Not to worry though - for the younger ones, the obstacle courses are easier but adult supervision is a must for those 18 years old and below.
Since this is going to be an outdoor activity, do bear in mind that you will need to be properly dressed - put on clothes that are comfortable, meant for outdoors and that you would not mind getting them a little dirty. Sandals, high heels, slippers, open toed and slip on shoes are not allowed at all - but sneakers and running shoes are definitely ok. If you find that your hands are sensitive, you may want to consider wearing gloves and if you have long hair, you will have to tie your hair. Bringing an extra change of clothes is highly recommended - so that you won’t be sitting in the chartered bus in your sweaty, smelly clothes and make the others feel uncomfortable with the “not-so-nice” odor.
If you happen to be afraid of heights, you can be assured that safety is a priority at Go Ape and they will never take your safety for granted. You can always stay on the ground and cheer your mates on as they take on the adventure course. Without a doubt, this outdoor trip will be one that everyone will have much to say on the way home in the chartered bus - and you can give yourself a pat on the back for having come up with such a brilliant idea for the trip - as well as the arrangement to charter a bus too!
