Mar 27, 2013 - Florida from top to bottom with a Charter Bus

A charter bus trip to Key West from Pensacola will basically take you from one end of Florida to the other. Within that travelling period, you get an opportunity to view some of the more popular tourist attractions in the state which are also some of the most famous tourist destination the country has to offer. The best way of seeing Florida is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Charter Bus Florida.

With your charter bus, you can easily reach the National Museum of Naval Aviation at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola. Some of the aircrafts on display there will wow you such as the Blue Angels jets, World War II Flying Tigers, World War I biplanes and even a command module from Skylab. Want to try out your flying skills? Just check out the motion-based flight simulator. Another cool exhibit would be the reproduction of an aircraft carrier. Just upstairs of the museum, you get to walk through an exhibit that recreates the life of those who were battling against the incursion of fascism overseas. You can even hear an Abbott and Costello routine.

Another place to visit would be the Kennedy Space Center where there is a life-sized replica of the Space Shuttle. Nearby, charter bus visitors can visit the IMAX theater which spans four-story tall. Inside the theater featured the NASA Art Gallery where there are 200 pieces or more of art by famous people such as Andy Warhol and Robert Bauschenberg. If you dream of being an astraunaut, you can get a chance at the Astronaut Encounter. Don’t forget to also pop by the Mercury Mission Control Room to view the actual flight control equipment used to get the first American astronauts to space.

With a short charter bus ride away in Tampa, you can visit Busch Gardens, a little Africa in the middle of the USA. There is a marching band at this attraction known as the Mystic Sheiks who performs at different locations throughout the park at different times of the day. Inside Busch Gardens you can ride the SheiKra roller coaster which goes up as high as 200 feet before dropping down making your heart skip a beat at 70mph. Another great but wet ride would be the Tanganyika Tidal Wave which drops you down a 55-feet on a slide that will soak both on the ride and the spectators on the side. You can also spot some animals here as Busch Gardens is a reserve for parrots, rhinos and more.

Another favorite amongst charter bus visitors is the Monkey Jungle. This animal exhibit is a little different where the apes and monkeys run free while visitors view them from inside a cage. At least 30 different species of primates are found here at Monkey Jungle, such as gibbons, spider monkeys and howler monkeys. Watching the monkeys dive into the pool for treats is quite a sight to see. Don’t forget to also take a stroll through the Amazon Rainforest exhibit to watch some of the animals feeding.
