The Local Beat: Countryside Tours

by Kate Branum

Countryside Tours (located in Sand Lake), is a West Michigan tour company that facilitates memorable trips and tours across the United States for both students and adults. The company plans major trips each year, including a history-based trip for students which tours the East Coast. More than 2,000 students from 17 school districts are shuttled to New York to view Niagara Falls and Pennsylvania to walk around Gettysburg, Philadelphia and Hersheypark.

Countryside Tours also has recently built a trip to Missouri for those interested in quilting and crafts, a trip to Chicago to see the musical Pretty Woman this March, a Vera Bradley outlet show in Indiana this April, an annual Kentucky Derby trip this May and a culinary excursion called Taste of Wisconsin in July.

Have something specific in mind? Get a group together and Countryside Tours will help you do the rest. The company assists in coming up with a trip budget, provides charter bus transportation to accommodate the whole group and helps you locate places to stay to ensure a hassle-free, exciting experience that will have you itching to do it all again.
