Hunting Down Afghan Food in Baltimore Maryland

Due to a large influx of migrants and visitors from other parts of the world, Baltimore Maryland continues to rank as one of the most culturally-diverse cities in America. In a way, THAT was the reason for the nickname ‘Charm City’ was given to Baltimore. The huge mix of migrants and locals also meant that there is much option to choose from in terms of charter bus rental tourists destinations and of course, we can never forget to mention…food.

In fact, some would not hesitate to say that they would come all the way to Baltimore just to sample local food because it most definitely have a certain flavor of its own. As expected from a seaside community and city, there is a world of seafood cuisine to be experienced during your bus rental MD vacation and the visits are even more special because you are doing all of that together with your family and friends. Get yourself a local tour guide if you want to sample the best bangs for the buck but it is not required. You can tour around on your own to make your very own special gastronomic finds.

One such example would be Afghan Kabob House….a very well-known Baltimore Afghan eastery located at Federal Hill. The Baltimore City Paper have called it a ‘must; for weekend dine-outs as the aushak, dumpings, sauces and pumpkin dishes are absolutely to-die-for. The restauarant is often packed to the hilt with tourists and locals during weekends while it makes its business from the corporate community during week days. We think visiting their website and making a reservation for yourself during your bus rental MD trip is a good idea. Vegetarians need not fret as it serves up quite a fanciful list of meat-less dishes too. If you are confused with their selection, the friendly staff will gladly point you in the right direction.

If the food at Afghan Kabob hits your fancy, we think you might want to check out what Akbar has to offer too. Location-wise, it isn’t as strategic as we would like it to be but there are bonuses to being located in the basement of Mount Vernon…private dining and relatively reasonable prices most of their dishes. What is truly interesting about eating out at a place like this would be the restaurant’s open kitchen concept whereby the clay oven which is used to prepare specialty food like tandoori chicken and other items requiring baking is visible.

As you can very well see, the variety is endless when you are hunting down good food with fair pricing in Baltimore Maryland.

Rafting Things Out At McHenry’s Adventure Sports Center

If you are Maryland and is craving for some fun and adventure, we reckon you should organize a MD bus rental day trip out to Marland’s McHenry for a fun day of kayaking, canoeing, climbing and geocaching. Adventure Sports Center at the heart of McHenry also offer hiking and biking to their charter bus rental customers and visitors who are not into adventure sports but more into nature and if they have a deep love of the beauty of the gorgeous sights at the top of the mountains. Adventure Sports Center is located at the top of Wisp Mountain of McHenry, Maryland and is one of the most extensive artificial whitewater course there is in the region.

An artificial whitewater course means that it is an artificially-generated rapids and made suitable for all forms of water sports like whitewater canoeing, kayaking, racing, rafting, and playboating.

Some MD bus rental customers might be a little concerned about safety concerns and bringing smaller children to the man-made rapids but the guides have all assured their visitors of a couple of things before they even step foot into one of the boats; one, the rapids is very controlled and two, water isn’t deep. Furthermore, other safety measures includes a half hour talk before the rafting begins so that charter bus visitors are more aware about what expect during the whole experience. There were some parents who came in groups, together with their children aged somewhere between 7 – 10 for the ride and the kids had a lovely time.

During colder months, one of the things that we might have to contend with would be the chilly weather. But the good news is that, since the rapids is man-made, the water is heated to the right temperature.

Another fantastic thing about heading out to a place like Adventure Sports Center of McHenry Maryland are the guides. Knowing how to handle the rafts and gears is one thing but being assuring, informative, helpful, friendly, and comfortable with the guests is very, very important…in fact, people have the most fun when they have a friendly guide who is assuring and made them feel comfortable enough to enjoy a ‘dangerous’ expedition.

Bus Rental MD charter bus visitors laments that one round of riding is way too short so, they would often end up going for two to three rounds. After they have reached the end of the ride at the bottom of the rapids, a lift will conveniently bring these adventure-seekers all the way to the top again…effortless and convenient. Reviews about it being an expensive is unfounded considering the fact that it is much safer, more convenient and certainly so much more professional than having to make a charter bus tour visit to a real rapids where Mother Nature is in complete control.

Please do head over to their website to find out more information about what you should and should not bring for the trip…and have fun!

A little offbeat in Maryland

Maryland is a wonderful place to visit in its own right, although it is often overshadowed by Washington D.C. There are a few sights in Maryland that most people never see, tourists and locals alike, and a good way to get around and see them is with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Bus Rental Maryland. Travel around in style and comfort in your rental bus as your reliable rental bus driver gets you where you want to go.

If you have a weak stomach, you might want to stay on the rental bus and give the National Museum of Health and Medicine a miss. Located in Silver Spring, Maryland, the museum was established during the American Civil War as the Army Medical Museum. Its purpose was to collect specimens for research in military medicine and surgery. During the 20th century, the focus of the museum moved towards research and pathology. Museum staff pioneered photomicrographic techniques, establishing a library and cataloging system which later formed the basis for the National Library of Medicine. The specimens on display are real, and definitely not for the faint of heart. Human organs, amputated limbs, objects removed from bodies are all on display, and likely to give you nightmares for months.

Everyone has played at least one game of pinball in their life, and one place you can relive your memories of putting a quarter into a machine for a few minutes of flipper fun is at the National Pinball Museum. Just a short rental bus ride away from Washington D.C., the National Pinball Museum is dedicated to that American icon, the pinball machine. From an historical perspective, pinball has always been more than just a game. It’s a scrapbook of American tradition and folklore, a looking glass of culture, a pleasure-filled journey winding its way through the marriage of art and technology. The history and development of the pinball machine is explored in depth in this museum, tracing pinball’s origins back to its roots in the French game of bagatelle, invented in 1777. The main attraction is the “Pay to Play” room, where a rotating display of about 40 machines from the museum’s collection of over 800 tables are available for visitors to play with.

Children, and the child in all of us, love trains, so hop into your rental bus and visit the Roads and Rails Museum in Frederick, Maryland. Founded by David Burroughs, the Roads & Rails Museum celebrates historic automobiles and railroads. The museum houses one of the largest miniature world model train displays in America and is designed to be a fun display of three dimensional art, combined with sound and movement. Visitors will be amazed at the detail in this miniature world complete with a zoo, circus, working volcano, walk-through mountains, subway, coal mine, castle and towns with moving trains, trolleys, cars and trucks.
