Enchanted With Santa’s Enchanted Forest

The wide, long, golden, sandy beaches may be what comes to mind when you think of Miami but there is really more to the guise than that. Strategically located along the Atlantic coast line in the southern part of Florida, it is the 42nd largest city in the United States, and boasts of 5.5 million people in the metropolis alone. And there is even more in the suburbs which are mostly located in parts of Florida’s former Everglades like the west of Biscayne BayFlorida Bay and Lake Okeechobee.
If the kids aren’t enchanted with Florida’s beaches or if they have just about had enough of the sun, then perhaps they will be enchanted with Santa’s Enchanted Forest. Our bus rental customers in Miami Florida find their kids enchanted enough with this seasonal theme park.

Unique Places in Miami

Needless to say, there are lots of bus rental Miami tourist attractions all around the city, the endless sandy beaches, amazing all-year sunny weather, astonishingly vibrant nightlife and these are just the start of what you can expect from an amazing place like Miami. This tourist magnet hotspot is perfect for those who wants more than just a common beer or a occasional margarita. We think that things are just a little bit more explosively fun here in Miami because of the people that we encounter and get to know along the way. Suffice to say, the various culture is the eye-opener for us. A little bit of this and a little bit of that - combine them all together and you will get Miami.
For instance, nothing beats the culturally colorful Little Havana which is a part of Dade County. It is a hub for Cuban refugees back then as they flee from castro-controlled government back home. You would have thought that, over time, the Cubans would have adjusted to the American way of life and have discarded with their own culture. Not at all. Stepping into Little Havana during your bus rental Miami vacation is the closest to visiting Cuba as you can get without taking an actual flight there. There is just so much culture all around us as we walked about the unique buildings, street art, stores, restaurants and paintings on buildings. Truly unique and worth experiencing more than once in your lifetime.
Whenever we speak of visiting Miami in a bus rental Miami charter bus, we think of beaches very naturally. After all, Miami is one of those places that the earth has blessed with countless white sandy and seemingly endless beaches all over the place. So much so that our bus charter Miami customers have gone on to say that no vacation to Miami is considered complete without a bus rental Miami visit to one of its beaches. One of them would have to be South Beach. From partying to shopping, from sunbathing to enjoying a massage in a spa...they are all right here, right smack in the middle of South Beach, easily accessible and readily-available. If you are lucky, there will be an expo or festival that you can be a part of.
Of course, Miami is known for its Everglades, which boasts of more than one point five million acres of sub-tropical forest and swamps. Don’t miss the chance to head over even if you have only half a day to explore. it is truly one-of-a-kind tourist destination and you will have difficulty finding in other parts of the world.

Up Close and Personal with Nature at Jungle Island

Are you looking for a place to bring your family out for some fun? How about a trip to the Jungle Island at 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, Miami? Heard of it but have never been there yet? Well, then it is about time that you rent a Miami bus and load everyone onto the bus and head on down to the Jungle Island for a day’s of fun and thrills.

In comparison to the Miami’s Metrozoo, the Everglades habitat at Jungle Island may be smaller, but it is rather nice. The Jungle Island also have a lot of shady areas with new buildings and exhibits, so be sure to be comfortable dressed and wear comfortable walking shoes, as the grounds to cover are rather huge too. If you think your kids may enjoy the inflatable slide at the Jungle Island, be sure to call them up first to find out if the slide would be operating, so that you can bring a spare change of clothes if they have their wet slide available on the day of your visit. Or, if you prefer to take the risk, you can always bring along the change of clothes and leave the bag in the Miami rental bus if you don’t need them.

When you make plans to visit the Jungle Island, always give yourself at least 2 to 4 hours to spend there so that you don’t have to rush through the trip with your family. Instead, with so much time in your hands, you get to enjoy yourselves in there without worrying about having to leave so soon. At this zoo, they also have many interactive experiences with the animals for visitors. If you have never been able to get up close to a kangaroo to touch and feed it, well, you can get to do that here in Jungle Island. We would suggest that you make plans to arrive at the Jungle Island early so that you can beat the heat or the afternoon thunderstorms. You can always let the Miami bus rental company know that you prefer to arrive early and they will make arrangements to accommodate to your request. You are allowed to take photographs as you tour around the zoo, so do remember to bring your camera along with you on this trip so that you can snap away and bring home a lot of beautiful memories from this trip with your family.

Oleta River State Park, Miami

Oleta River State Park is said to be Florida’s largest urban park and is located on Biscayne Bay, and though it has a lot of recreational activities offered to the public, it is better known for its miles of off-road bicycling trails – for the amateurs as well as the more experienced bicyclists. However, you don’t have to be a serious bicyclist in order to make a trip to the park in a Miami rented bus. If you want some sunshine and outdoor activities to exercise your body, or just to refresh your soul, then Oleta River State Park is just what you need.

During summer, the park is usually packed with visitors and Miami rental bus passengers will always get to enjoy themselves at the park doing one activity or another. At the north end of the Oleta River State Park is a large and beautiful mangrove forest that still preserves the native South Florida plants and wildlife. If you are one who enjoys having guided tours, then join a Park Naturalist on Saturdays or Sundays at 1 o’clock in the afternoon for an hour’s worth of walk through the park and learn about the history, ecosystems, plants and animals at the park and we’ve been told that this summer has been especially wonderful because in one of the recent walks, they counted over 16 species of butterflies that appeared at the park!

One of the other quieter activity that Miami bus rental visitors can enjoy at the Oleta River State Park is fishing, as they have a fishing pier and you can also purchase the fishing gears and baits from the Blue Moon Outdoor Center that is located within the park itself. If you already have your own fishing equipment, you can always bring them along with you on your trip as you will have more than enough space in the Miami rented bus for you to put all your things.

However, for those who prefer a more vigorous activity, there is also a whole lot of other options at the park like kayaking, canoeing, swimming, hiking and the list goes on. If you enjoy animal watching, you will also be able to do so at the park and picnicking is always a popular thing to do for many visitors to the park. Also, renting a Miami bus for the trip will not be problem at all because the Oleta River State Park is open from 8 in the morning until sunset, all year round.

One of the most popular places in Miami to see and be seen is Liv at Fountainbleu. It’s huge space and lavish design allows party people to rock all night long. Outrageous antics are the order of the day at Liv,, from Hipster Wednesday to Lil’ Wayne bringing the house down on Sundays. The VIP Skyboxes are where the rich, famous and beautiful hang out. Liv is very popular and consequently very hard to get into, but well worth it. Grab a rental bus and head over to Liv for a party to remember.
This one is more of a tourist place than anything else, but a party at Mango’s is always good, whether you’re a tourist or a local. Mango’s Tropical Cafe is a Latin themed club on Miami’s famous South Beach. Nightly shows and VIP rooms allow them to cater for everyone from tourists to corporate get-togethers. Samba and Salsa are the dances of choice on Mango’s dance floor, and there are nightly shows Vegas style.

The Pool + Patio is where all the action is, featuring 3 bars and a kitchen that’s open till late.
