Outdoor Fun At Antietam Recreation (Hagerstown, MD)

There are loads of things for a family to do right here in the heart of Maryland but sometimes, we all need to just…get away from everything for a little while. And for that, we think the Antietam Recreation has the ability to turn a weary weekend into one that is fun, outdoorsy and intensely exciting for kids and grownups alike by using a Maryland rented bus.

Located slightly off the Hagerstown radar, Antietam Recreation is a family-owned business that has been providing endless fun activities for more than three decades. The secluded recreational center is on a thirty two acres site of land which used to be the old Turner Farm. Back in the early 1970’s, the Rotz Family were looking around for a good piece of land that could accommodate their two horses and contain water.

Let’s just say that the owners of Antietam Recreation knows a thing or two about outdoor living and camping – after falling in love as high school sweethearts, the couple were actively involved and worked with the camping environment and industry. They have an extensive resume of working not just with horses and people but also with kids.

The people at Antietam Recreation deserves the success that they have today, they grew from providing 20 campers with facilities and fun games to coping with 350 campers per week! The family works closely with each other in the community and tirelessly contribute towards church and homeschooling society. Many people use Maryland charter bus rental services to come here in groups so that they can enjoy the wonderful dinner shows which are usually performed during the winter months. However, the facilities are available from May right through to September as well. For schedule, timing and show times, we encourage our Maryland charter bus rental customers to visit their website and get in touch with Andy, Jessica, Rob or any other one of their facilitators.

The family have grown to include five children so they DO know how to keep things active and exciting. Antietam Recreation guarantees that the kids are going to go to camp super eager to be in on the games and come home muddy but inspired and exhausted. Activities like playing Capture The Flag in the woods, kayaking, canoeing and horseback riding not only helps with kids’ confidence but it also builds character and instills basic values that are so lost in the modern world that we live in today.

Antietam Recreation is a great place not just for large organization but also provides for a great way to develop teamwork, as a birthday gift, or a getaway with friends. If that sounds interesting, be sure to get in touch with the likes of Bus Rental MD to book your charter bus, party bus, coach charter, mini bus or school bus early in order to avoid disappointment.

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.

Maryland on the half shell

If you are traveling through Maryland on a hire bus from Bus Rental Maryland, you cannot help but notice that enormous bay out of the window. This is Chesapeake Bay, Maryland’s single largest geographic feature. This huge body of water is the world’s third largest estuary, and was once known for it’s abundant seafood and shellfish. Unfortunately, over the years, overfishing and pollution have severely reduced the the catch being brought from the bay. Measures have been taken over the past couple of decades to reverse this, and preserve the eco-system and fishing grounds. This has led to the bay making some recovery, and Maryland seafood is again available to be enjoyed by all.

Maryland’s cuisine can be a little exotic. Years of overfishing can make certain delicacies hard to find, but a little persistent searching will yield delicious rewards. Most famous of Maryland local delicacies are Maryland Blue Crabs. The blue crab is Maryland’s state symbol, and prepared in the local manner, makes for a wonderful meal. Blue Crab is usually served in large quantities, drenched in peppery Old Bay sauce, and accompanied with copious amounts of beer.

Another specialty is soft shell blue crab. These are crabs which have shed their hard shell, and are in the process of growing a new, larger shell to grow into. Known around the world as a delicacy in high class , fine dining establishments, soft shell blue crab is pretty much an everyday bar food staple in Maryland. Just grab the crab, and eat it all. In Maryland, soft shell blue crab is usually served in a bun, with a variety of condiments.

Aside from crabs, you will also find a variety of shellfish on the menu. Oysters on the half shell are what Chesapeake Bay is famous, and over here you will get them fresh, served with a hot sauce. Chesapeake Bay clams are also served the same way. If you’re visiting during the colder months, a meal of steamed mussels are an excellent way to warm yourself up. If you are in Baltimore, visit Bertha’s for the best steamed mussels in the state.

Having nothing much to do with the bay, or the sea, it might surprise you to learn that friend chicken is very much a Maryland specialty. It is a known fact that restaurants in Kentucky serve fried chicken done in the Maryland style. Fried chicken in Maryland is pan fried with about a quarter inch of oil, leaving a crispy skin that differs from the deep fried crunchy type. This delicacy can be a little hard to find, but a little searching and inquiries with old timers in Maryland will lead you to unassuming shacks with hand painted “Chicken” signs out front.
