Christmas in Miami

Escape the cold of winter and head down to Miami this December for a year-end celebration you won’t forget. Start the party by booking your journey to Miami by charter bus rental from Bus Rentals Miami.
Miami is famous for its diverse cultures, white sandy beaches and art deco architecture and also for its relatively mild year round. Best of all, with the average winter temperature hovering at around 70 degrees in the daytime, you can still enjoy outdoor activities with comfortable charter bus rental services while taking advantage of many other indoor events.
One of the best things to enjoy in Miami in December whilst outdoors are the beaches, the most famous one of all, being South Beach, for sunbathing and sightseeing. Mind you, the water may be a bit chilly, but the hardy can indulge in swimming, boating, jet skiing, and parasailing.
If you prefer things a little bit warmer, then check out the climate-controlled swimming at Coral Gables' Venetian Pool that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nature lovers can charter bus visit the Metro Zoo, Monkey Jungle (with 30 species of primates), or Jungle Island.
One good thing about having a bus charter vacation during this time of the year is that Miami and Miami Beach draw big names in the music world for concerts from rock to classical in venues like the Gusman Center. Enjoy public skating and special events like the Cirque du Soleil at the Germain Arena or spend the day checking out the wonders of science at the Miami Museum of Science and Planetarium, relive your childhood at the Miami Children's Museum, or take in some arts and culture at the Miami Art Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Historical Museum of Southern Florida, Fairchild Botanical Gardens, or the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.
Sports fans can rejoice as winter also means it’s football season, so do get the charter bus driver to take you to the stadium so that you can catch the games with the University of Miami and the Miami Dolphins, or spend your time courtside with local basketball heroes the Miami Heat or pro hockey with the Florida Panthers.
Another good thing about December, the international “Art Base” is held every year at Miami Beach and Basel, Switzerland (in June). Other annual events in December include the Greater Miami Dog Club Show, the Israeli Film Festival, the Miccosukee Indian Arts Festival, and the Florida Dance Festival. And don’t forget the Christmas-themed events like Santa's Enchanted Forest, the Winterfest Boat Parade, and the Miami City Ballet's performance of "The Nutcracker."
So pack that swimsuit, slop on some sun tan lotion and book your luxurious charter bus from Bus Rentals Miami. celebrate December in Miami.

Be your own tour guide in Miami

Welcome to Miami. Traveling with Bus Rental Miami by bus or limo is one of the most economical and practical ways to travel to and around Miami. If you’re visiting Miami on a budget, or just prefer to explore the city yourself with bus rental services, then you might be considering exploring the city on your own. But what should you see and how should you do it?
Take a walk about the gorgeous walk by Bayfront Park. From there, head towards the bay in the bus charter just past the Hard Rock Café and you can catch Biscayne Bay in all its glory, with the Port of Miami in the background. Turn back pass Bayfront Park and walk down to the mouth of the river and see an impressive sculpture by Haitian-born Edouard-Duval Carrié and amazing wall drawings by Cuban-born Glexis Novoa.
From the mouth of the river, take a moment to consider that the concrete jungle of Brickell Key was once a swamp with a pristine where the first pioneers traded goods with Indians who paddled up from the Everglades in their dugout canoes. It's an amazing sight, we assure you.
Continue on towards Biscayne Boulevard in the mini bus and at the end of the path, look straight directly south across the river at Philippe Starck’s massive Icon development, then look at the empty patch of grass by the river’s edge. This location, Miami Circle is the site of an ancient archaeological site where Tequesta Indians lived over 2,000 years ago.
For those of you who prefer a bird’s eye view to the city, the best option is to take the Metromover, Miami’s free light rail system.
There are three loops – Omni, Downtown and Brickell. The Omni loop takes you as far north as the School Board, with the Miami Herald and Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts along the way. The Downtown loop circles the business and shopping district. The Brickell loop on the other hand travels as far south as 14th street. However, you can enjoy seamless traffic in the party bus.
If you get confused where you’re going, just observe the electronic signs above the track. You really can’t get lost though as the loops are finite and each rail car always returns to the same starting point.
The Brickell loop is the best way to get a bird’s eye view of Downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods and you’ll pass by many historic buildings and high over the river.
You’re not done yet, there’s so much to explore that all you have to do is look up a place and google it but if you prefer to be driven around, then waste no time in contacting Bus Rental Miami and book a tour bus for a quick lookaround around the city by charter bus.

The Wolfsonian Art Museum

If you are into industrial objects, metal work, books, paintings, glass decorations and furniture...basically stuff that are old and hold significant value in terms of design and culture, then you are in for a treat when you hit the Wolfsonian Art Museum. The Wolfsonian is sponsored by the Florida International University which is located on Washington Avenue. The campus is a nice and popular one with students from other parts of the country.
The artifact exhibits are basically furniture and artwork collected from North American and European countries which are dated as far back as 1885.
Wolfsonian museum aims to research and showcases artworks that powerfully persuades, expresses and makes people think. It is a way modern people can quietly observe, think and learn about these objects and what the creator intended to convey. Our bus rental Miami customers who went there came out from the exhibition much more of a thinker, so says Laura, a regular customer of ours. Sometimes, it takes very little to just make us reflect on how far human beings have come and most art lovers love to think about life and creation.
The Wolfsonian also have a very rare collection of books and paper and textile based creations that are hard to find in other museums. What is really unique about your visit here would be about how you will learn how to look at the same object from different angles to see a completely different perspective. That's art...and that is powerful.
In a lot of ways, that is precisely what Wolfsonian is all about. If you are currently organizing something, a trip, a school field trip or just looking for a place to hold an event (they have different types of space for rental, do check out their website for more information –
A reminder to our bus rental Miami customers – the museum can be packed with people during summer months and school holidays so, if you are heading over in a group, please be prepared for long lines and endless waits for a parking spot. Apart from that, the Wolfsonian Art Museum is a definite winner as far as museums are concerned.
