Feb 24, 2013 - Beach fun in Maryland

Bordered on the east by Chesapeake Bay, Maryland boasts of many great beaches that allow charter bus visitors great opportunities for fun in, on and around the water.  Encompassing over 500 miles of shoreline, Maryland’s beaches run from Brooklyn in the north to Rose Haven in the south.  Brooklyn in the north to Rose Haven in the south.  Pay a visit to some of Maryland best public beaches with a bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Baltimore Bus Charters.  Travel to the beach in style and comfort with a charter bus, and spend the day having fun in the sun.

A great charter bus beach destination is Sandy Point State Park.  Located within the city limits of Annapolis, Sandy Point State Park covers 786 acres along Chesapeake Bay's northwestern shore near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.  Charter bus visitors can swim at the park's southern beaches, which are supervised by lifeguards during the summer season.  Showers are available after a day on the beach at the park's bathhouse or visit the snack bar.  Playgrounds and picnic areas are adjacent to the swimming beach and 22 ramps provide access for boats to the bay.  Charter bus visitors can also observe the 1883 Sandy Point Shoal lighthouse standing 37 feet tall and visible from the beach 1,000 yards to the east and fishing is permitted from designated areas of the shoreline.

For charter bus visitors interested in swimming in Chesapeake Bay, get your charter bus driver to take you and your charter bus group down to Mayo Beach Park, which also borders the mouth of the South River.  There are lifeguards patrolling the designated swimming areas of the sandy beach during open season at a ratio of one guard per 50 swimmers.  You can launch a boat or let the kids climb the structures at the nearby playground after a swimming session.  Picnic areas and a rental pavilion are also available to charter bus visitors wanting to hold celebrations or get togethers.  Mayo Beach Park is located in the town of Edgewater in southeast Anne Arundel County.

Anchoring the northern point of Pasadena and extending into Chesapeake Bay, Fort Smallwood Park has beach access, although swimming is not allowed. This does not mean that charter bus visitors will be at a loss for things to do.  Charter bus visitors can take in the views of the bay from the beach area while relaxing on a chair, or launch a canoe or kayak nearby.  Those with dogs may bring their best friends along to play at the dog beach.  There is a 380 foot fishing pier where charter bus visitors can try their luck at fishing, while history buffs in the charter bus group may prefer to visit the historic gun battery and abandoned barracks.  Other park amenities include picnic areas, horseshoe pits, walking trails and a playground.

For a good time at the beach, give Baltimore Bus Charters a call and let them plan a fun filled, fuss free trip to the beach for you with a selection from their fleet of charter buses and friendly, personalized service.
