Bus tours in Kentucky are becoming more and more famous. There are many reasons behind this phenomenon – gorgeous natural beauty, loads of outdoor recreational activities, and captivating folk culture.

Most travelers are finding themselves jaded – all the glitz and glamor that attracted them a couple of years back has stopped doing so now, and they find themselves preferring leisurely travel in which they can appreciate a destination in its true glory.

Bus tours are a novelty for many. While taking a bus was the norm several decades back, most people started flying even to nearby destinations to save time. However, they seem to be getting bored of jet-setting, hence the renewed interest in taking the bus.

Fascinating Florence

The second-largest city in Northern Kentucky, Florence is best enjoyed by the family. This city is almost bursting at the seams with family fun activities. Just imagine entering the city and being greeted with its iconic water tower that says ‘Florence Y’All’! How cool!

Like most people on bus trips in Florence, KY, you too can start your visit by heading over straight to the Rabbit Hash General Store. You will feel like you have stepped back in time. Operational since 1831, this store even has river mud from the 1937 flood in its attic! You can pick up loads of goodies here, like old-fashioned candy, vintage items, and more.

Your next stop, especially when with kids, must be DEFY. They can expend a lot of that pent-up energy on the trampolines. There are many other activities here awaiting them – trapeze fun, extreme dodgeball, foam pits, and so much more!

If they are still wired, you can go to the Full Throttle Adrenaline Park where while the kids get busy with cart racing and virtual reality, you can pop into the rage room to spend your pent-up energy by smashing stuff like glass bottles and flat-screen TVs.

For some old-time fun, you can head over to Dave and Buster’s Florence for arcade games that will take you back to your childhood.

Another interesting spot here is the Ark Encounter. Built according to the dimensions given in the Bible – Book of Genesis, this replica will enthrall you and your family with information on Noah, the animals he brought on the ark, and the flood.

As for grub, you surely won’t go hungry in Florence. This city is a mecca for burger lovers. In fact, a great idea would be to go on a burger trail. You can start your morning with the Morning Glory Burger from Drake’s, munch on Barleycorn’s Cincy Grippo Burger for lunch, and finish off a good day with a Mushroom Swiss Burger at Kitchen 1883. What a delightfully delicious way to enjoy one’s trip!

If you are tired of the daily grind and are looking for bus trips near me to take a break, don’t go far. Fun is waiting for you in the city of Florence and all you need to do is make a booking. Book today!
