As our company celebrates its 70th Anniversary, our blog celebrates its 1st! One year ago we started with a new aim to bring you interesting and useful information to make your travel experiences even richer!
We started with a couple of great posts sharing the history of Starr.
Did you know that our family run business is currently in its third generation?
Have you ever wondered where the name “Starr” came from?
We’ve shared important safety information.
There was this post with information about motorcoach safety.
Starr’s CEO, Alan Glickman, shared information about Starr’s focus on safety.
We posted a few tips on staying safe when traveling solo.
And threw in some pointers for a few of our popular tours.
Like how to spend your time on Block Island.
