The Best Golf Courses of Berlin MD

Search up Maryland on the internet and you will soon come to understand that the state of Maryland is split into different communities and culture centers. And it is quite literally impossible to run out of things to do. Is there something for golfers? Absolutely. Golfing enthusiasts, be it professionals or amateurs, will find Berlin Maryland an interesting to visit during their Maryland bus charter vacation.
One of those golfing attractions that our customers have fervently fallen in love with is Rum Pointe, located just right outside of Ocean City, Maryland. This picturesque golf course is strategically located overlooking Assateague Island National Park and seashore. So, visitors not just get the chance to challenge their golfing skills during their bus charter visit, they are instantly treated to an amazing seashore view too. Rum Pointe was designed by renowned golf course and landscaping professionals, P.B. Dye and Pete Dye who are known for sculpting some of the most famous golf courses in the world. Of course, when you are there for more than a day’s golfing, you ought to seek out accommodation nearby. Rum Pointe Condo provides a convenient place for you to relax in between your golfing expeditions.
Another golf course that can challenge you and help you improve on your game in Berlin MD would be GlenRiddle Golf Club’s tough course. Even golf experts have said that Man O’War course is very tough. We don’t think this golf course is suitable for beginners who are just learning the art of perfect putting. ‘The sea grass that we tried out was really, incredibly difficult, one of the toughest that I have had to go through in my eleven years of practicing golf. The seagrass area seems to be eating up all of our golf balls!’ Tim, a regular golfing enthusiasts who love organizing large group golfing events. GlenRiddle Golf Course is located at 11501, Maid Arms Way, Berlin MD.
In a way, some of our bus charter MD customers and regular travelers have come to remember River Run Golf Club fondly - it is mainly due to the fact that the layout was very interesting. Not the toughest golf course but it was challenging enough even for professionals. River Run is located at 11605, Masters Lane, Berlin MD. We were duly impressed with the services and amenities provided....truly a all-in-one golf club providing world-class services.
If you are looking around for a good bus charter, shuttle bus, minibus, coach charter, party bus or school bus for a group golfing event or expedition, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Bus Charter MD for our professional and affordable bus charter rental MD services and packages.

Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum

Are you planning a trip to Maryland with the family? Should this be your first holiday with your family to Maryland, don’t forget to include in your trip a visit to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in a MD charter bus. It would be an excellent place to go with your family – to learn about the life of the people who live, work and play on the Chesapeake Bay.

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is located on 18 waterfront acres in the town of St. Michaels and it offers many interesting and unique exhibits and displays of the history and culture of Chesapeake Bay. It has been said that the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum’s floating fleet of watercraft is the largest, while their small boat collection consists of crabbing skiffs, workboats as well as log canoes. There will be much to see and do here, especially if it is your first trip here with your family in the MD charter bus. Do give yourself and your family about a few hours to leisurely tour the whole museum without rushing through any of the exhibits – the admission fee to the museum is valid for the whole day, anyway. If you have always been curious on how boats are restored, you will be able to see the works of the restoration of the Bay’s traditional vessels at the museum’s working boatyard. While the restoration works is going on, they also have someone there to explain on what the restorers are doing and what else needs to be done for the old boats.

For one who loves history, learning about the past through the exhibits and displays at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum would certainly give you an insight of the amazing life on the Chesapeake – in the past as well as the present. We also believe that the kids would have a wonderful time at the museum because there are also a lot of exhibits in the museum that are especially for them to learn and use their imagination. If you want to get your hands on learning to build a boat, you can even sign up as an apprentice boat builder – but you will need to find out if this is available on the day of your visit. While the museum and its store is open all year, but their opening hours also vary according to season. They are closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s days.

Get Up Close and Comfortable with Mother Nature in Maryland

It may have been a long time ago when Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia were turned into battle zones during the early days of the formation of United States of America but the history remains one of the prime reasons why the Maryland tourism industry have remained intact and thriving to this very day. The state of Maryland is also located near the eastern seaboard of the country, rendering it a darling hotspot for tourists with a love for the sea, sun and nature. People who make Maryland their charter bus destination of choice, it is usually due to the fact that they are looking for some picturesque place to relax, unwind and be away from the modern day world...even if it is just for a couple of days. There are countless beautiful and tranquil location for Maryland charter bus rental customers to do that....to be present and in on the great American holiday.
Nature lovers often find themselves completely charmed by what Deep Creek Lake of Garrett County has to offer. On its giant platter of offerings would be stretches of beckoning mountains, mysterious dark forests, slivers of rivers and, of course, not forgetting, Maryland’s largest freshwater lake, Deep Creek Lake. It is extremely hard to push yourself to function at the same pace that we usually do back home when we are at work in this place. The pace of life is almost at a standstill, forcing you to slow everything down just to observe carefully, slowly and intimately. For that moment, you forget all about the frantic modern life.
Does this mean that it is boring? This cannot be further from the truth. Adventure seekers will get the chance to get up close and personal with Mother Nature in the form of opportunities to do some hiking, guided rock climbing, try out some whitewater kayaking, slow things down with fishing and then quicken the pace up with biking around some of the most expansive natural spaces in the country. In winter, many Maryland charter bus visitors come here for the endless rounds of snowboarding. And if that is not enough to satiate your hunger for adventure, head over to Bear Claw Snow Tubing Park in the rented charter bus and try out snowtubing instead. Make no mistake about it, this is not kids’ play because at the park, there will be more than eight hundred foot worth of tubing lanes to enjoy.
Those longing for some sun, sea and beach will definitely find Assateague Island a charmer and a friendly place to explore. They are famous for the number horses which sometimes are found freely galloping along the shorelines. The sight is nothing short of miraculous....right out of a movie or a postcard.

A Memorable Scenic Train Ride

Just like the charter buses in Maryland, trains are also a form of transportation to many. However, have you ever rode on a train that takes you through some really beautiful scenery? Never? Well, then it is about time you tried the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad experience – at least for once in your lifetime. If you are thinking of how to get there, don’t worry too much about it – let our Maryland bus charter service take care of that issue for you. All you need to do is to spare a few hours over a weekend and make it a time of pure enjoyment for you and if you like, your family too!

Train rides are usually fun – especially for kids and if you add on to the trip a ride in one of our MD charter buses, we bet the kids will be even more thrilled and excited! The usual scenic expedition from the Western Maryland Station in Cumberland begins at 11.30am, so be sure to arrive there in our chartered bus before then. Upon arriving, you will have to choose which kind of train rides that you want to go for – they have three different types (one of which is the regular scenic expedition that starts off at 11.30am, as mentioned earlier) of train rides to choose from and each one is unique and interesting. By the way, if you have any kids below the age of two, they get to ride free if they are not occupying a seat in the train.

The other two rides are known as the Murder Mystery Train ride and the Santa Express or North Pole Express ride. Just as the name suggests, the Murder Mystery Train ride will be full of mystery and fun as you play detective in solving the “murder case” on board the train. Food and beverage are served throughout the whole trip, so you won’t go hungry or thirsty trying to find out who the “murderer” is! This train ride is usually so much more fun when you have a big group of friends travelling together.

As for the Santa Express or North Pole Express train ride, the expeditions usually begins towards the end of each year, and this year they begin their trips on November 29th and the very special thing about this train ride is the appearance of Santa Claus and the train flags off at 6pm to the North Pole. During the trip, you will listen to the staff read you a story, an opportunity to meet Mr Claus, enjoy cups of hot chocolate with cookies and many more exciting activities.

A uniquely fun train ride and a comfortable MD bus charter in one day – what more can one ask for?
