    Must-See Attractions at Mt. Vernon

    Last updated 3 days ago

    Mount Vernon is an American landmark. What was once an active plantation is now one of the nation’s most visited historic sites and an enduring reminder of the life and legacy of our country’s most important founding father, George Washington. Once you make arrangement with a charter bus company to transport your family or work group to Mt. Vernon, make sure you see these can’t-miss attractions. 

    Ford Orientation Center
    Before you explore the grounds around Mt. Vernon, start your experience in the Ford Orientation Center. Here you can watch the 25-minute live-action adventure movie “We Fight to Be Free” and inspect a precise scale model of Washington’s mansion and the grounds surrounding Mt. Vernon.

    George Washington’s Mansion
    After George Washington moved into the house that his father built in 1752, he spent the next five decades greatly expanding the structure. The result is an impressive, 21-room residency with architectural features that showcase his status as a true Virginia gentleman.

    Slave Memorial and Burial Ground
    Located 50 yards from George Washington’s tomb is a memorial honoring the slaves and free African-Americans who lived and worked at Mt. Vernon during the 1700s and first half of the 1800s. Spent quiet time at the memorial beneath the shade of surrounding trees and reflect on the historical significance and impact of slavery.

    Pioneer Farm
    Although George Washington is known as a military commander and president, he was first and foremost a farmer—and he was quite an impressive farmer at that. Washington sought new approaches to agriculture and experimented with crop rotation, fertilizers, plowing practices, and more. You can tour the four-acre Pioneer Farm and see what it was like to live (and work) during Washington’s day and age.

    Tips for Travelling to NYC in the Summer Months

    Last updated 1 month ago

    New York City is a wonderful place to see any time of the year. If you are looking for a fun summer trip, renting a charter bus to take you through NYC is the perfect idea. Continue reading for some tips on how to make the most of your trip to NYC this summer.

    Keep Your Midtown Visit Brief

    Midtown Manhattan is the city’s urban core, and in the summertime, it is both hot and crowded. If you’re headed to NYC on a bus tour, go to Midtown to see the Empire State Building and Times Square, and then get out. Uptown and downtown are more pleasant and authentic areas of the city.

    Explore Central Park

    Central Park is astoundingly pleasant in the summertime, with far fewer people than you see in the fall and spring months. In Central Park, you can explore beautiful gardens, walk tree-lined paths, and even take a swim at Lasker Pool at 108th street. If you hear music, feel free to head to the source—it’s probably a free outdoor concert.

    Walk Through the West Village

    The West and Greenwich Villages should be quintessential parts of your charter bus trip to New York City in the summertime. Taste the organic fruit at the Union Square Greenmarket, and then head over to Washington Square Park for coffee at a classic Italian café. As the sun sets, go to the Hudson River Park to watch a classic movie screened outdoors, underneath the stars.

    Head South

    No trip to New York City is complete without a few photos of the Statue of Liberty. Take a boat tour to Liberty Island for a close-up experience, or take the Staten Island Ferry for an excellent view of Lady Liberty and Ellis Island. Afterwards, stroll around Brooklyn Heights and Prospect Park, and then grab an ice cream at Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory.

    If you are planning a visit to New York City, contact Haymarket Transportation of Northern VA at (888) 928-4048. You can also visit our website to learn more about how our fleet of charter buses and motor coaches can serve you.
