Each year, Melard Coach offers charter bus tours to Florida almost every weekend (with well-announced exceptions) from the beginning of January through the end of March.

Tour busses depart from our main location in Ephrata, Pennsylvania at 11:00 am, and stops in Intercourse, Ronks, Lancaster, and York, before heading down to the Sunshine State. We usually arrive in Florida by Saturday morning, and depart Monday at 12:00 pm for Pennsylvania.

Just escaping the harsh cold of winter for a few days, makes Florida an exciting and popular charter bus tour. If you would rather be looking at palm trees and basking in the warm sun, instead of bundling up to keep warm, while you shovel snow,then you need to book a Florida bus tour
