Excitedly screaming children… jostling tourists… miles long lines… is this really your idea of a break away from the monotony of your life?
No? Thought so!
More and more travelers are taking the path less traveled and enjoying the quietude and serenity offered by unseen destinations. And many of them are discovering the joys offered by slow-paced, comparison to jet-setting, bus tours .
And every single one of them comes back rejuvenated and looking forward to yet another relaxed and unhurried trip in the near future.
If you are looking for ‘bus trips near me’ why not take a gander at what Florence, Kentucky, has to offer and then make a decision?
Located in northern Kentucky, Florence is its second-largest city, around 12 miles south of downtown Cincinnati.
You can rest assured about the warm and welcoming nature of its residents and their pride in this town when you see the unmissable ‘Florence Y’All’ water tower near the airport.
The very location of Florence ensures that there is a wide array of big-city facilities and activities available as is the comforting lifestyle of the Kentucky countryside.
Things to do
You can start off your trip with family fun at the Florence Family Aquatic Center. While the kids enjoy the water slides, you can cool off in its zero-depth zones.
Refreshed, you can then head over to the Florence Nature Park Event Center. It will open up all your senses and make you feel one with nature with its stunning views of the Florence Nature Park, abundant fauna, and majestically towering trees.
You can carry this feeling forward with a visit to Stringtown Park. While you get some exercise on its fitness stations, the kids can expend their pent-up energy in its Camelot-theme-designed playground.
And of course, taking bus trips in Florence, KY means enjoying a couple of rounds of golf. You can tee off at the World of Golf or the Boonelink Golf Course. With a miniature golf course available too, you don’t have to worry about the kids getting bored here.
If you want to revisit your childhood and show your children a part of your life as a kid, head over straight to Dave and Buster’s. The familiar sounds of arcade games, music, lights, and laughter, will make you feel as if you have stepped back in time.
Adrenaline junkies can race around the professionally designed racing circuit at Full Throttle Indoor Karting which also offers carts for the young ones. This is pure, unadulterated fun and you don’t have to be a pro to race down the track!
If you still aren’t sated, you can defy gravity at DEFY Florence, a much-visited trampoline park, or put your mind to work in Sherlock’s Escape Rooms where you have just half an hour to solve codes and riddles to escape a closed room.
All of these sound so tempting! With more people taking bus tours in Kentucky, some of these towns have started marking their significance on touristy maps. You must plan a trip here soon before the madding crowds arrive!
