There is a restroom on the bus, and the bus generally stops once on each trip for a snack and restroom break.

The bus will not be parked at the Hawthorne Hotel all day, so you will need to take your valuables with you. However, you can leave coolers, games, and other non-valuables on the bus as the same bus will pick us up in the evening. 
You are welcome to bring snacks and drinks on the bus, we simply ask that you not bring glass or alcohol.
