在你开始计划你的一天之前,先考虑一下你将如何出行. Large groups of kids surely won’t be comfortable in cramped cars, vans, or even school buses in Dallas’ sweltering heat. How about renting a charter bus instead? 不仅你的学生或露营者能在温控舱内舒适地度过, but they’ll stay entertained too. Longhorn Charter Bus has access to minibuses and full-sized motorcoaches with WiFi so kids can play games, TVs with DVD players so everyone can enjoy a movie, and power outlets to charge up phones before a long day out. 当你在达拉斯旅行时,每个人都会有一个安全、平稳、舒适的旅程. Call (214) 206-8432 at any time to book with Longhorn Charter Bus.

现在让我们来看看你的行程中哪些价格低廉的达拉斯地点.
