Fun Activities to do During Spring Break

Yes, it’s that time of the year again. Spring is coming, and most students have their spring break coming up. If you have no idea how to spend the last break before summer, this article is for you. From beaches and other outdoor activities to fun things you can do indoor, our article says it all. Read below on how to stay bored-free during Spring Break 2019.

Beaches

Beaches are the most spring-break related destination probably on the North American continent. Beaches have it all, from high-class resorts to fun water activities. Known for its college students partying on beaches, they’ve gained a reputation as only a party place. At a beach, there is so much more to do than party with your friends. While this may be fun, have you been jet skiing, surfing, or even snorkeling in the water? These are just a few of the water activities at the beach. Popular beaches in the United States include Daytona Beach, Miami Beach, Las Vegas Beaches, Panama City Beach, and several more. Notice how most of the listed beaches are in Florida, so you might want to bring lotion to keep you from getting burnt by the hot sun.

 

Go Hiking or Bike Riding on a Scenic Trail

Another great outdoor activity/destination for spring break is hiking or bike riding on your favorite trail. Spending time on trails is a great way to relax and experience the beauty of mother nature at the same time. Plus, you can maybe grab a picture or two next to some beautiful plants for your social media. For the best pictures, coming at sunrise might be a good idea. You can catch that beautiful glimpse of the sun rising over the treetops, exposing the bright foliage which lies on the trail. Another benefit of coming at sunrise is that you have the rest of the day to explore the trail and nearby areas. Also, many national park features famous trails, so visiting both is a time well-spent.

 

Visit your Family

One of the best things to do over spring break is to visit your family back home. You’ve been at college or out for a while, away from those who love you. The week-long break offers a great time to get back to that, go places with them, and so much more. A great way to go back may be a surprise visit, which would really make them happy. There’s so much you can do with them back home, from exploring the city or area you grew up in to eating at all your favorite spots. C’mon, who doesn’t like reliving their favorite childhood memories?

 

Spend Time with Your Friends

Many students spend the break week hanging out with their friends. During the semester, there isn’t much time to relax and catch up with your besties, but the break offers a great time to. There’s a variety of things you can do with them, from just doing local activities to taking a road trip. There are many scientific benefits for spending time with friends. One of the major ones for students is coping with stress. Spending time with those you are close to, such as friends and family, help reduce your stress. Being stress-free in college is practically impossible, so reducing it is your best option.

 

Traveling

One of the favorite activities to do during spring break is to travel. Traveling and visiting interesting places also may help reduce stress. Not only is it fun, but it can be made into a group thing. What if all your college friends went on a road trip together? What if you all visit a major city that you’ve wanted to explore? There are just so many places you can visit and travel to. One of the best ways to travel is by chartered bus, which Prompt Charters specializes in. The versatility and size of the buses makes it very popular among travelers. Our bus models can seat up to 60 passengers, so traveling in a large group should not be a problem with us.

Minibus vs Van for Small Group Travel – Which is Better?

You might be a frequent traveler, but you probably know that group travel can sometimes be difficult to coordinate. When you consider which vehicle to pick, a large van might be your first thought. Well, did you know minibuses are better than vans for small group travel? They’re one of the best ways to transport small groups to school events, church activities, and business trips. Below are the major reasons why you should pick a minibus over a van for small group travel.

 

Larger Capacity

Well, the first reason the minibus is better for traveling than a van is the larger carrying capacity. Coming in several different sizes, our minibuses are capable of holding anywhere from 15 to 37 passengers. On the other hand, most vans can carry only about 12 passengers. Prompt Charters has access to countless minibuses, including coach styles. Even if you don’t have up to 15 passengers, riders can still stretch out in different areas of the minibus if they choose.

 

More Storage

Aside from being able to fit more passengers, a minibus also has more storage options than a van. Most feature overhead bins for carryon items and baggage, as well as space under the seat to store a purse or a backpack. Most vans don’t have an overhead bin, and only have a tiny space under each seat to store anything. If passengers are bringing plenty of luggage or souvenirs back from their trip, a minibus is the best option with its extra storage options.

 

Added Comfort

Speaking of “extra”, minibuses feature extra comfort compared to a van. The first thing different is the seat itself. A lot of vans have the uncomfortable bench seats, which forces you to squeeze in next to another passenger. On the other hand, the seats on minibuses are separated, so each passenger can enjoy their own space without being in another passenger’s lap. They also have spacious center isles, which makes entry and exit from the vehicle easier. Most of our minibus models feature extra legroom as well, so tall passengers don’t have to be uncomfortable on their ride.

 

Safer Travel

One of the most important choices about vehicles is which one’s safer. Vans are usually not as strong compared to minibuses, basically due to their weaker build. In the event of an accident, the steel walls on the side of the minibus will protect the passengers a lot more than those of a van.

 

Extra Amenities

Everyone likes to enjoy their ride. In a van, all there is a radio, speakers, and air conditioning. On the other hand, minibuses can be loading with extra features that make the ride more enjoyable. Depending on the model or request of the client, our minibuses can feature large windows, PA system for music, comfortable seats, flat screen televisions, and even Wi-Fi. C’mon, who doesn’t enjoy watching a show, reading an online book, or something else regarding the internet on a long road trip? When you book with Prompt Charters, these and many more amenities are offered and available.

 

Experienced Drivers

As Prompt Charters, we pride ourselves in our employees, especially our drivers. Not only are they highly trained and qualified for the job, but they also are knowledgeable about the roads you’re traveling on. A good reason to pick our minibus over a van is because we offer a designated driver. For the duration of your trip, our driver will drive you and stay nearby when you stop at a hotel. Once the trip is done, he will drive you back to the original pick up point. Also, many of our bus drivers are great tour guides, so you might be able to talk to them about your trip destination. Our trained drivers are just another reason to pick our minibuses over a van.

These were just a few reasons as to why minibuses is the better option compared to a van. Because they feature more space and added comfort, a minibus is one of our most popular chartered vehicles. As one of the best in the business, Prompt Charters offers a variety of vehicles, including minibuses of various sizes, large motor coaches, party buses, and more. From transporting you for a church activity to a business trip, Prompt Charters can do it all. To learn more about our vehicles, visit promptcharters.com.

What to Do Inside a Charter Bus

 

You’ve finally decided to book travel with Prompt Charters, but now you’re wondering what exactly can you do inside a charter bus? When people think of bus rides, many think of crowded, boring, and unenjoyable rides. Little do they know, a bus ride on Prompt Charter buses can be far from boring and cramped. Most of our bus models feature leather seats, and all our buses have exceptional legroom. No matter how tall the passenger is, we’re sure they will be more than comfortable. Other than comfort, there is so many ways to enjoy your bus trips. Below are what to do inside a charter bus.

Break the Ice

Even when you’re traveling with people you know, it can sometimes be awkward when put on a long bus ride together. A great first thing to do is break the ice. Go sit next to them and talk to them. By doing this, you can learn more about them and they can find more about you. You can learn about common likes and dislikes and perhaps even participate in activities which y’all both like to do.

Games

A game is a great way to break the ice and learn about your fellow bus passengers. They not only help you pass the time, but you also learn more about the others as well as the great entertainment. A few great games to play include: I Spy, We all Spy, Telephone, and Karaoke. Karaoke is a popular bus game that not only is great entertainment, but also helps you learn about others’ music talents and tastes.

Electronics Use

Do you have a college paper or work to finish? Do you just want to relax and watch your favorite show or listen to a popular podcast? Well, those might be good ideas of what to do inside a chartered bus. Oh wait, you’re saying you need Wi-Fi for your electronics? Don’t worry, that’s not a problem with Prompt Charters. Most of our bus models offer complimentary Wi-Fi. In our larger buses, we even offer electrical outlets to charge your devices. Electronics can be a great way to pass time on a long, chartered bus trip.

Reading

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” – once said by Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss). Reading engages the mind like few other activities, and it might be a great thing to do on bus trips. Like in the quote, “The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Here at Prompt Charters, we encourage people to learn about their destinations by reading about them. That way, you’ll know more about the place than the average visitor. Reading is an educational pastime, and its even better on comfortable seats in our buses.

All the above activities are great things to do a chartered bus ride.

5 Historic (and Patriotic) Sites to Visit for Presidents Day

It comes by every year, but how often do we remember it? Yes, I’m talking about Presidents Day. Sure, a lot of us don’t have work or school, but for what reason? This year, on February 18th, America celebrates George Washington’s birthday as a federal holiday, also known as Presidents Day. From Washington to current presidents, each has impacted America and left behind a legacy. Presidents Day is set apart to honor those leaders who have guided America through the years. An amazing way to honor that is to visit one of these 5 historic and patriotic sites below for Presidents Day. Perhaps, even make it a weekend getaway trip with your family.

Mount Rushmore, South Dakota


Other than government buildings, there might not be any place more “president-celebrating” than Mount Rushmore. The mountain is set in Black Hills Mountain Range in South Dakota. It’s not the location that is important, but what’s on the mountain. Carved into the granite is the faces of four of America’s greatest leaders: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. These Presidents are perhaps America’s most famous presidents, and each played an important role. From Washington’s leadership to Lincoln’s freedom to all slaves, each of these great men shaped America to what it is today. Mount Rushmore is a perfect historic place for anyone, especially for a visit on Presidents Day.

Freedom Trail, Massachusetts

At the time of America’s founding, Boston played a very important role. It was here where the “Shot heard around the world” was fired, beginning America’s War for Independence. Aside from important battles fought at Boston, it was also where important colonists leaders spoke out and made decisions. Freedom Trail highlights the important areas of Boston by linking them through the trail. Some of America’s oldest buildings lie on the trail. The red-brick and cobblestone path takes visitors to 16 significant historic sites, winding from Boston Commons to Bunker Hill Monument. If you can make it to Boston, you can’t miss walking the good ol’ Freedom Trail.

Independence National Historic Park, Pennsylvania

Many important buildings, structures, and documents of America’s founding can be found at Independence National Historic Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. One of the most historic sites in the national park is Independence Hall. It was here where the original Declaration and Constitution of the United States were “debated, drafted, and written.” Within, you can still find the original copies of the Constitution and the Articles of Confederation. Across from Independence Hall, you can find the Liberty Bell Center. Like its name implies, this is the home of the original, cracked Liberty Bell. The Liberty Bell was once mounted in the tower of Independence Hall, but it began to crack over time. After several unsuccessful attempts at repairing the metal bell, they put the bell in what is now the Liberty Bell Center. The national park also contains several other historic sites, like the United States’ first bank. Independence National Historic Park is definitely a must-see for every proud American.

Federal Hall National Memorial, New York


The New York Federal Hall is the birthplace of American government. Not only was it the location where George Washington swore the oath of President of the United States, but it was also the meeting place for the first Congress and the first Capitol of the United States. This was where many important decisions that have impacted American life today were made. Federal Hall was also the home of the Supreme Court and the Execute Branches of the government. Today, the original building has been replaced by a Customs House, but it still serves as a museum and memorial to our first President and the history of our government. Inside, you can find original copies of several acts and laws, as well as the Bible Washington was sworn into office with. We recommend that you plan a visit to New York with a visit to Federal Hall National Memorial as part of your itinerary.

The National Mall, Washington D.C.


No, this isn’t a shopping mall. The National Mall is actually the park containing several of America’s most important building. The long, grassy strip of land contains both the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument. Towards the east end of the park, you can find our nation’s Capitol building. Towards the north, you can find one of the most protected buildings in the United States, the White House. Inside, you’ll probably find the President doing his job, but its very rare to meet him. Usually, people aren’t allowed into the White House unless within a tour or they have special access. A word of caution: do not try to get into the property without permission, as you most likely will get tackled (or shot) and arrested. Exploring certain areas within the White House without clearance may not be such a good idea either. If you can get a chance, visiting the National Mall and its sites make for an amazing, educational trip.

How to Get to These Sites?


You know what’s a great way to visit these places? A chartered bus trip. Prompt Charters is our name, and bus chartering is our game! We are one of the best in the bus industry, offering reliable and efficient chartering services. No matter what you may need, we will do our very best to fulfill all your desires.

How to Enjoy Your Baltimore Visit

baltimore

 

Things to Do/Places to Visit


Are you an art person? If so, you should head to Maryland’s largest art museum, Baltimore Museum of Art. The facility holds over 90,000 art pieces, comprised of various cultures and styles. Famous artists include Matisse, Picasso, and many more. Andy Warhol, one of the prominent leading figures of pop art, also has one of his largest collections at Baltimore Museum of Art. Inside his collections, one can find many styles of European, African, and Asian art. If you head to the museum’s Contemporary Wing, you can find Warhol’s “Last Supper”. The sculpture garden at the museum hosts live jazz music concerts during the summer. If you don’t have much time to explore the museum, the Contemporary Wing and the sculpture garden are the must-visit highlights. There isn’t a cost to enter the museum, but certain displays and exhibitions can require an entrance fee. The BMA is open from Wednesday to Friday from 10 am to 5 pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, they open at 11 am and close at 6 pm. The museum is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and some major holidays.

 


Do you enjoy the great outdoors? If you do, you should head over to Baltimore’s Patterson Park. From dog parks to a swimming pool to sporting areas, Patterson Park has it all. Overlooking the park is the Pagoda on Hampstead Hill, which also offers beautiful views of the city. Also known as the Observatory, the jewel of the park offers scenery like no other place in Baltimore. During certain months, outdoor concerts are held at Patterson Park, mostly during the summer time. If you’re more of a naturalist, you can participate in bird watching and gardening with the Friends of Patterson Park group. Patterson Park extends about 137 acres within the city. Parking is offered around the park and doesn’t cost a penny. Access to the park itself is free, and its open from sunrise till sunset. The Pagoda is open from noon to 6 pm on Sundays from the middle of April to the middle of October.

 


“Oh, say can you see…” While many know the words to Francis Scott Key’s patriotic tune, most have no idea the battle at Fort McHenry inspired him to write the song. It was the War of 1812, when battle was thick between the British and the Americans. The British sent their navy to destroy Fort McHenry, mainly due to its important placement. Francis Scott Key, a lawyer pleading the release of an American civilian, was on a British troopship when the bombing began. While the British didn’t want to hurt him, they thought it would be best for him if he was kept on the ship while the battle was going on. Hours of bombing ensued. When dawn came, Key would look out of a window in the ship and still see the American flag flying high and proud. The British had failed to destroy the fort and the morale of the troops inside. The Battle of Fort McHenry would give him the inspiration to write our national anthem. At the Fort McHenry National Monument, you can learn about this incident and the importance of the fort.

Why You Should Pick Prompt Charters as Your Wedding Transportation

You’ve been waiting for the day you say “I do” for the longest time. You have everything planned out, from the seating to the decorations. It’s finally your big day, and the one thing you definitely shouldn’t be worrying about is the wedding shuttle transportation. That’s why you have Prompt Charters. From out-of-state to hotel to venue services, we offer it all. We understand how stressful it can be for the couple to arrange everything, transportation included. They obviously don’t want their visitors late to their wedding, so they expect our shuttle services to get there on time. We do that and soooo much more. We don’t want your guests being late, struggling to find parking, or getting lost. From timing to reliable travel, Prompt Charters has it all locked down. Learn why you should pick Prompt Charters as your wedding transportation below.


Why a Wedding Shuttle Service is Important

Most weddings are held at venues, which means many, if not most, have to stay at hotels nearby. Getting to the ceremony location, like a chapel, can be difficult with traffic, finding parking, and driving directions. Depending where the wedding is, getting to it might make you late, especially with a large crowd. That’s why you should book Prompt Charters for an on-demand shuttle service. Depending on how many buses you want, our drivers can take the crowd from the hotels they’re staying at to the chapel. This proves to be faster than the visitors driving their own cars, causing an influx in the traffic. It also prevents them from getting lost. Driving directions can be confusing at times, but our drivers are highly experienced and have a thorough knowledge of the roads in the area. We recommend you booking several minibuses, because they can quickly shuttle passengers from one place to another.

Visitors from afar

Do you have visitors coming in from out-of-state or from a distant city in your state? If so, you might want a bus picking them up instead of them flying in or driving. If they all meet up in a central location, our bus drivers can pick the whole group up and transport them to their accommodations in your wedding city. If you/they have pre-arranged hotel plans, our drivers can drop them off and standby for further shuttle services. From the hotel, the buses can shuttle the visitors to the ceremony and then to the reception (if you’re having one). The importance of shuttle services can be read above. Once all the events are done, our drivers can take them back to the original pick-up point.

Reliable & Comfortable

When people travel, they always prefer to be comfortable. Prompt Charters strides to provide the most comfort in the industry. Many of our seats are plush, leather seats that people delight to sit on. We offer more legroom than a typical car or plane, giving a chance for passengers to stretch out. We know many wear their best to weddings, and we don’t want them to get wrinkled. By providing more legroom, passengers can keep themselves looking tidy and sharp. Not only are our buses comfortable, they also are reliable. Each bus is constantly tested and tried for any issues and problems. On top of that, our drivers are background checked and reliable. They know all the roads they travel on, and they also can be your personal guide for the area. When it comes to reliability, Prompt Charters are sure we’re one of the top competitors.

Wedding Related Travel

Other than shuttling visitors in, we also recommend you book us for other wedding related travels. Examples include the rehearsal dinners, groomsmen and bridesmaid’s transportation, honeymoon, and much more. We offer a special type of bus called the party bus. Inside, visitors can lounge back in their plush, leather seats and enjoy the party atmosphere. Inside, you can find a PA system, speakers, flat screen monitors, tables, and even a bathroom. These buses are perfect for afterparty travels, transporting the groomsmen and bridesmaids, and even for city trips. Aside from this, we offer plenty of minibuses, motor coaches, and more.

You can learn more about our services and vehicles at promptcharters.com. For a personalized quote, give our team a call at ☎ 1-877-277-6678. We hope you say “I do” to our services. Happy Travels!

Charter a Bus Trip to the Best Ski Cities in the U.S.

Winter is in full blast right now, so that means amazing snow sports. Who doesn’t enjoy playing in the snow? One of the most popular is skiing, whether in the backyard or on the slopes of a mountain. In this article, we talk about the best ski towns in the United States, and possibly some of the best on the planet.

Not only do they offer great reliability and comfort, but our drivers are highly experienced and have a great knowledge of the roads. They will be able to take you to your destination as safely as possible, leaving nothing for you to worry about. Keep reading to learn more about our picks on the best ski cities in America.

 

Vail, Colorado


If you’re looking for the largest and possibly the best ski resort, you can’t miss heading over to Vail Resorts in Colorado. It is the largest skiing area in Colorado, as well as one of the largest in all of North America. The state of Colorado is famous for its popular skiing towns, and Vail is one of them. Unlike most other ski towns, Vail was made for one purpose: skiing. Unfortunately, it lacks history and authenticity as a historic city but makes up for it with all the things to do. From live music to amazing food, Vail will prove to be some of the best times you’ve had on the slopes. At Vail Ski Resort, you can rent skiing gear and get your adrenaline running as you head down the mountain. If you’re looking for a place to ski, Vail should be one of your options.

 

Taos, New Mexico


When people think of best states for skiing, they most likely won’t think of New Mexico. New Mexico features one of the best ski towns in the United States, Taos. The ski town is famous for more than just skiing, from upscale art galleries to exquisite cuisine. Most people wish to ski on the slopes of the Rocky Mountains, and you can do just that at Taos Ski Valley without much of a crowd. If you’re a newbie, you might want to stick to the smaller slopes, but if you’re an advanced skier, head up to Kachina Peak with the provided lift. Kachina Peak is one of the state’s highest mountain passes, so you better not be afraid of heights. Once you get hungry, head back to Taos Ski Valley for some of the best food in the state. From breakfast to dinner, everything is served at the multitude of restaurants they feature. If you’re looking for a relatively crowd-free skiing spot, head to Taos.

 

Durango, Colorado


According to Durango’s website, they feature “a snow day the whole family will love.” This, according to thousands of visitors, is true indeed. Years ago, Durango was a mining town but since then has become one of the hottest outdoor activity spots in the country. Not only is it great for outdoor sports, but Durango stays true to its historic roots by keeping landmarks like the Strater Hotel open. The historic sites, as well as the interesting dining, makes Durango a unique place to visit. If you’re looking for the best ski spot in Durango, head over to Purgatory Resort. Unlike many other ski slopes, they feature tons of terrain perfect for newbies and beginners. Don’t worry advanced skiers, there’s more than plenty of terrain for y’all.

 

Park City, Utah


One of the most convenient ski towns is Park City, Utah. It’s located only about 30 minutes from Salt Lake City, making it one of the few ski towns that close to a major airport. Things like unique dining, perfect ski slopes, and the Sundance Film Festival make Park City a must-visit during the winter. Park City also used to be a mining town, but now thrives as a ski and snowboarding hotspot. If you only want to ski, you should head to Deer Valley; and if you want to snowboard and/or ski, head over to Park City Resort. Park City Resort is the larger of the two, in terms of terrain as well as amenities. Park City also features the world’s only ski-in and ski-out distillery, so you can raise your spirits after a long day in the cold weather.

 

Jackson, Wyoming

 Wyoming’s most popular ski town is Jackson, hands down. It’s not a mining town, but more of a cowboy town. Back in the day, the settlers of the Wild West were putting the work in at Jackson, making it another historic ski city. If you’re an advanced skier, you should head over to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for steep slopes. If you’re bringing your family or more of a beginner, you should stick with Snow King Mountain Resort. It offers much easier terrain than Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. When you get puckish, head over to Mangy Moose, one of Jackson’s most famous restaurants. There, you can enjoy a fresh brew, a steakhouse breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and live music. What more can you ask of a restaurant? If you’re looking for an amazing skiing spot, don’t forget about Jackson.

 

You know how you should get to these ski cities? No, not by flying but by chartered bus. Here’s why. Prompt Charters’ chartered buses offer a relaxed and comfortable ride, compared with a cramped, uncomfortable plane seat. In most of our bus models, we also offer complimentary Wi-Fi. That’s next to rare on plane rides. What happens if the weather gets to dangerous to fly in? Your flight might be delayed or even canceled. If you choose our chartered buses, our drivers are highly experienced with these types of situations. They will decide when its safe to travel, and we guarantee we’ll be on the road before the plane takes off from the runway. There are so many more reasons why traveling by chartered bus is better than plane, many of which you can read about in our other articles.

These ski towns are calling your name. You know you want to go, and you should book your travel with Prompt Charters.

Top 4 Cities to Visit for the Food

Food. This article is all about the food. Well, that and the best foodie cities as well. You like food, I like food. Who doesn’t? That’s why we decided to write about the top four United States cities that you should visit for the food. Although most of you can guess a city or two on this list, some may surprise you.

 

New York City



New York City has one of the largest food scenes on the continent. From Indian to Italian to American, NYC has it all. The metropolitan is filled with restaurants of different cultures. If you head to Kopitiam, you’ll find a café that serves coffee and full, authentic Malaysian meals. If you fancy French food, Le Coucou is definitely the way to go. Daniel Rose, the chef of Le Coucou, is a renowned French chef in the United States. Another great place to eat is Katz’s Delicatessen. Katz’s Deli is an insanely popular tourist and foodie spot in the city. They are known for serving some of the best sandwiches and morning foods in the state. Aside from restaurants, NYC also features a variety of credible food carts. Among the most popular are the Halal Guys, who serve their immensely popular chicken and rice. Also, NYC is notorious for its amazing pizza, found literally everywhere. If you’re traveling to NYC, you mustn’t miss these popular places of food.

 

San Francisco



Another major foodie destination in the U.S. is San Fran. Being another large city, it also features cultural food from around the globe. Being so close to the Pacific Ocean, it features a lot of seafood options. Akiko’s Restaurant serves one of the most popular seafood options, sushi. Italian cuisine is also very popular in San Francisco, so you should visit Seven Hills. If you don’t mind spending more than a few bucks on food, visit the popular French restaurant, Gary Danko. The chef, which the restaurant’s named after, mixes exquisite French food into a homely space. In the eyes of a foodie, San Fran is definitely a major player in the best spots for food.

 

New Orleans



New Orleans is significantly smaller than both San Fran and NYC, but their appetite and palette is definitely not. The Louisiana city is heavily influenced by French culture, with jambalaya standing out the most. Jambalaya is a Spanish, African, and French dish of rice which originated in Louisiana. Gumbo Shop is one of the best places for authentic jambalaya in the city. Another popular food is PO-Boy sandwiches. It was “created” for streetcar workers who went on a strike, or so the tale goes. It’s basically a heap of tasty meat stuffed into a roll of French bread. There are many restaurants that serve these sandwiches such as Parkway and Killer PoBoys.

Los Angeles



Another city near the Pacific, Los Angeles also features tons of great restaurants. Unlike most other cities, L.A. offers its food on a relaxed scale, meaning you can find great places in even places like a strip mall. Los Angeles has always been known to compete against NYC for their pizza. Even now, there hasn’t been a clear winner. Nonetheless, several amazing pizza places include Casa Blanca Pizza Pie and Pizzeria Mozza. If you’re looking for an amazing foodie experience, visit Spago. Located in Beverly Hills, Spago is the brainchild of world-famous chef, Wolfgang Puck. You might even find him in the kitchen once in a while.

These were just a few of the best places to eat in the United States right now. A perfect way to visit these cities is a chartered bus trip. You can head to one or even all of the cities in one trip with Prompt Charters. Prompt Charters is a top-tier bus chartering company that is focused on providing the best in the industry.
