Save Time and Money Traveling around Waldorf in a Rented Charter Bus
Waldorf Offers a Myriad of Attractions, Art Centers and Iconic Landmarks for Visitors to Explore
With an original name of Beantown, Waldorf is a city located slightly more than 23 miles from downtown Washington D.C. The name-change was the result of the city honoring the life and contributions of William Waldorf Astor. After settlers found their way to the city, it began to enjoy a thriving tobacco industry, earning itself a reputation as a ‘tobacco market village’ back in the 1950s. Although development of the city was quick and it became a popular residential area and city, it continues to be surrounded by farms, namely Shlagel Farms, Middleton’s Cedar Hill Farm, Middleton Manor Farm, just to name a few.
This quaint Maryland city has its fair share of tourist attractions and family-friendly destinations, but whatever you cannot find in downtown Waldorf, you are always a short bus ride away from historical landmarks in Washington D.C. Be sure to bring the kids to National Children’s Museum for a fun time exploring educational hands-on exhibits, the National Gallery of Art to explore inspiring artworks, paintings and sculptures or have an outdoor gathering at Capital Clubhouse and Fort Washington National Park.
Many of these historical landmarks and attractions have ample space for big and small events alike. Do check their official websites out to find out they are suitable for wedding receptions, prom nights, bachelor or bachelorette parties, birthday bashes, anniversary celebrations, corporate functions, business meet-ups, or school field trips. Keep US Coachways’ number handy if you need a charter bus, coach charter, mini bus, school bus, party bus, wedding limousine or prom limo for events. The number to call is 1-855-BUS-CHARTER.
Find Out More about Waldorf’s Most Popular Tourist Attractions
In order to make the most of your time in the city and its surrounding neighborhoods, do some research by learning up about some of the city’s most interesting, fun and educational points of interest. Here, you can take the cue from our well-traveled writers.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — Kids learn really quickly when they visit a place like National Children’s Museum. The attraction is located on Saint George Boulevard and it provides visitors with an intimate experience with many well thought-out exhibits. Let the children and toddlers roam around the facility as they go from arts and crafts spaces to hands-on exhibits. And when they are done, head out to the park outside the museum’s building for a picnic or dine in at a few diners located nearby.
- Art & Cultural — There are quite a fair number of art galleries and art centers in and around Waldorf. Some of your best options are The National Gallery of Art located approximately 40 minutes drive away, Kelechi African Authentics in Mall Circle, Annie's Art Gallery in Camp Springs and Torpedo Factory Art Center located 35 minutes away in VA. There is something magical about visiting the Carlyle House located at Fairfax St. Alexandria in VA. The 18th century Palladian home cuts a sight even from afar; it offers tours around the house, garden and has special programs for children, events, exhibits and for those who are interested, book a spot for one of its art lectures.
- Restaurant & Shopping — It is not hard to find quaint and unique retail outlets clustered all around Waldorf's city center and its surrounding residential areas. However, if you are keen on a one-stop-shop experience, get the charter bus to stop at Waldorf Shoppers World on Crain Highway or St. Charles Towne Center at Mall Circle for a full day of shopping.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues – For some family fun, head over to the Capital Clubhouse at Waldorf Market Place. This sporting venue is a favorite with the locals during weekends as families head over to make use of its skating rink for ice hockey matches, public skating or to watch a figure skating competition. It also comes equipped with soccer field, basketball courts, inline hockey facility, lacrosse and volleyball courts as well as rock wall suitable for people of all ages. There is also something unique for golf enthusiasts - the Potomac Ridge Golf Course. Strategically-located slightly off of Washington Beltway and short drive from National Harbor, it is an ideal holiday vacation spot for people from surrounding communities. It features a classic challenging 27-hole golf course, away from the city yet easily accessible. It has both country charm and the convenience of being near other major cities. There are professionals who can help visitors polish their game if a one-on-one class is what you are looking for. With stunning views and modern facilities, the attraction is also a suitable candidate for private and formal events, big or small alike.
- Historical Sites & Landmarks — Repeatedly named one of the most historic sites in the city of Waldorf, a visit to The Dr. Samual Mudd House and Museum is a must when you are in town. Dr. Samuel Mudd was an important figure in the history of the city. Apart from telling a compelling story about how Dr. Mudd was the man who treated President Lincoln’s assassin after the historical event, the museum showcases some of the doctor’s most important works, research, materials, documents and other educational materials which helps visitors understand him and his work. The museum is run by Dr. Mudd Society, an organization that aims to restore and preserve the doctor’s home. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places late in 1974. Visitors will get the chance to learn insights about the role this home played during President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination. If you have a few more hours to spare, be sure to visit The George Washington Birthplace National Monument and George Washington’s Mount Vernon, both equally important to the city and region. The former was the birthplace of the country’s first President; today, children and teenagers can spend the afternoon learning about the home and the President while adults will enjoy the many livestock, gardens and farm buildings around the attraction. Visitors to George Washington’s Mount Vernon will get the opportunity to sneak a peek into the President’s life, estate, tomb, mansion, plantation and garden. And of course, don’t forget to grab a souvenir on your way out.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — When the weather permits, some of our charter bus rental customers recommend organizing a group trip out to a tourist magnet like Fort Washington National Park, slightly more than 20 minutes drive from downtown Waldorf. In the spotlight is a 19th century fort made completely out of stone. The fort was built as a part of the region’s military defence mechanism. Today, people throng to the park to enjoy its trails, picnic spots and learn about the park’s history at the museum.
