Group Planner: Top 10 Group Travel Destinations


 

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a list. There’s the list you get when looking for a charter bus on BusRates.com. Or the list of great restaurants our directory pulls together when you search here.

However, one of our lists is the one that starts it all–a list of destinations. We’re so keen on lists; we’ve even got a list within a list!

Learn a Thing or Two

Philadelphia, PA & Washington, DC

The City of Brotherly Love and our Nation’s Capital are two prime locations that can easily facilitate a group’s travel experience. Both cities have remarkable destinations that bring our history to life and make for a great shared experience. Additionally, they are both great food towns, so after walking the streets of our forefathers, the group can kick back with an amazing meal in cities that excel in everything from burgers to tandoori.

Catch a Show

New York, NY & Las Vegas, NV

The Great White Way and Sin City both offer sensory-engaging staged spectaculars that sweep you into a news world. The 2013-2014 NY season will be star-studded with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in “Waiting for Godot,” Denzel Washington in “Raisin in the Sun” and Billy Crystal in “700 Sundays,” to name a few. Las Vegas has many productions that made it big on Broadway like “War Horse,” “Mamma Mia” and “Sister Act.” There may also be a few other items of interest that may excite a group.

Tap Your Toes

New Orleans, LA & Memphis, TN

Music lingers in the air of these fine Southern cities like Chanel #5 in the department store. You can’t turn a corner without catching a waft of a syncopated rhythm or the wail of a muted horn. You name the mood there’s music readily available. You couple the tunes with a lil’ creole or ribs, and your group will be saying, “laissez les bon temps roulez!”

Toes in the Sand

Myrtle Beach, SC & San Diego, CA

Slow things down and grab some vitamin D by hitting these beaches fit for groups of all ages. Plan March and April for Spring Breakers or May and June for families. There are endless options for your group to explore. If the wide sandy beaches aren’t enough to entice, there’s also championship golf courses, amusement parks and plenty of shopping.

Amusement Abounds

Orlando, FL & Hershey, PA

You had us at chocolate, but the combination of rollercoasters and Hershey would be hard for any group to turn down. Then, when you’re talking about amusement parks, the “Happiest Place on Earth” has to lead the list. Both cities do a great job at making group travel easy to get to their main attractions, as well as in and out of hotels and restaurants.
