Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

If you are looking for an art collection that is of world importance, then you should ask your rental bus driver to take you to Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in the Fenway-Kenmore neighborhood in Boston. This museum houses all sorts of art, from exhibitions of historic and contemporary art, to concerts, lectures, family and community programs.
The coolest thing about the museum is that, anyone with the name Isabella gets free admission, in honor of Isabella Stewart Gardner, an American art collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts.

The Mary Baker Eddy Library - Looking at the World through a Glass

Do you love history and understanding more about the world and its going-ons? Then you would be amazed when visiting the Mapparium at The Mary Baker Eddy Library in Boston, Massachusetts. Your mini bus can get you there with ease, to marvel at this unique attraction.

Creative Design at its Best

The Mapparium is actually a three-story tall globe that is made entirely of stained glass. Charter bus visitors view this globe atop a 30-foot long bridge located through the interior of the globe. The Mapparium is based on Rand McNally political maps, and reflects the political world as how it was at that time, labelling certain regions the old way like Italian East Africa and Siam, as well as the now defunct political entity, Soviet Union.

Highlight of Hitting the Freedom Trail

There isn’t a smidgen doubt in my mind that a lot of the culture, history and roots that solely belongs to the people of Boston lies in their ability to stand together and stand strongly in the midst of trouble. Hence, I completely agree with it when Boston started promoting itself with the slogan, ‘Boston Strong’. You can feel the sense of pride whenever you hear the words uttered. As can be seen, as far as festivals are concerned, people best know the city for hosting Boston Tea Party event every year, without fail. And if you are here for a Boston bus rentals vacation with your loved ones this time of the year, you are going to be absolutely thrilled with the sheer number of activities going on. It is, after all, the end of the year.
The same way you should take a Boston charter bus ride to see Lady Liberty when you are in New York, one should not miss the chance to hit Freedom Trail when in Boston. It is one of the first historic walking tours in the country. To prepare yourself for what entails, try Google search up Boston’s Freedom Trail guide and you are good to go. Not only will the walking tour give you a respite from sitting out a long journey in the charter bus, coach charter, mini bus, party bus, transportation charter, mini bus or school bus, you will get the chance to learn about America’s most notable and important history
It all begins at The Old North Church which was built all the way back in 1723. It continues to be the oldest active church in Boston. Other churches may have survived pretty much the same history as The Old North Church but the fact remains, it was at this premise that ‘The British are coming’ was shouted. It was also at this very church that Robert newman climbed atop the church to warn Paul Revere about the oncoming American Revolution.
Don’t miss the chance to snap a picture of yourself with the Paul Revere statue located nearby the building. You will pass the statue during the walking tour.
Paul Revere’s home has been turned into a historical landmark today and it continues to enjoy much fame and attention from foreign tourists and visitors from out of town today. Its dark shutters may have shut out the dark history behind it but from a charter bus visitor’s point of view, this man’s contribution serves as a beacon of light for local Bostonians till this very day.

Charles River Esplanade

Sometimes when life becomes too overwhelming, we tend to look for a place to run away. Well, you don’t have to run away if you find that your life has been too hectic, but we reckon that a good run would do good for the mind, body and soul. However, we are not talking about you packing your bags and running away to some far away land, but to consider planning a trip to the Charles River Esplanade on a Boston rental bus and have a good run on the park to release all the pent up frustrations within you. Many say that running helps to clear the mind, and we believe that it is also a good remedy for stress too. Renting a Boston bus to to the Charles River Esplanade would certainly help because you don’t want to have additional stress of locating the place because that’s the job of the bus driver.

There are various activities that you will see happening here at the Charles River Esplanade such as kayaking, walking, jogging, and riding on bicycles. There are also couples who enjoy coming here in the evening for their dates because the park is a good place for a romantic stroll too. There are also many trees at the park, so if you enjoy reading, you can always bring along your book with you, find a good spot under a shady tree and read away. For visitors who come in a Boston rental bus, they always bring along a picnic basket and have their delicious homemade meal there with their friends. Alternatively, they would ask the bus driver to send them to some of the restaurants nearby for a sit down meal. Hence, if you prefer to spend more time there, bringing your own food would be a great idea.

Along the Esplanade, you will see many public docks and that is also a great spot to sit and people watch and enjoy the sunshine as you watch the sun rise in the morning or set in the evening. If you come here with your family, your kids will enjoy themselves very much because there are many playground sets for them to play in. Don’t be too surprised too if you suddenly hear your kids suddenly shout out to you that they have just spotted a squirrel, pigeon, hawks or owls! All you need to do is just look up into the sky and you may just be able to spot one or two.

Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum

For many people, the words “history” and “fun” do not come together in a sentence. However, if you were to make a trip to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum in a rented Boston bus, you will soon learn that for these two words to come together in a sentence is possible. Oh, wait, did you just shake your head in unbelief that we just said that it is possible? Don’t be shaking your head anymore, pick up the phone and rent a Boston bus and start planning your trip to the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and find out for yourself if what we just said is possible.

Unlike some historical places that you may have visited in the past where you are being guided through the museum with interactive displays or exhibits as well as listening to the tour guide tell you about the history of that place, at Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, YOU get to be part of the history itself! Sounds exciting and out of the norm, doesn’t it? Of course it is – especially when you are not going to just leisurely stroll through the museum and view the exhibits, but you get to be part of the reenactment of the historical night of December 16, 1773 and do what the Sons of Liberty did when they dumped tea overboard. In fact, don’t just come on this trip by yourself, gather a few of your friends, rent a Boston bus and come together to be part of the act and have tons of fun!

After all the fun of tossing the tea, you and your friends will then be led to one of the replica ships where you will find one of the cast explaining the scene of what happened when the colonists got down to the docks and usually, they would have some of the audience (especially kids!) to throw a few mock tea chests overboard to further enhance the story and the experience for the guests. Next would be the tour in the museum, and then finally, before you leave on your rented Boston bus, you and your friends can have a cup of tea at Abigail’s Tea Room (with their servers all dressed up as tea ladies in the olden days) and also, if you like, you can always hop on over to the Gift Shop to purchase some souvenirs to bring home with you.

North End – the Little Italy of Boston

If you are one who enjoys sightseeing, people watching, shopping and more shopping, then you should really take trip to the North End - Boston’s oldest Italian neighborhood. To make your trip light and easy, rent a bus for this trip and to make it a really enjoyable one, bring along with you some of your likeminded friends – the ones who would also enjoy sightseeing, people watching and shopping!

Upon arriving at the North End, Boston, you and your Boston bus rental friends may even feel as though you have stepped into a mini version of the country, Italy. In fact, North End is also known as Boston’s Little Italy due to its Italian American citizens living there.

For your first stop at North End, visit the Old North Church that was built back in 1723 and after that, you and your friends may wish to adjourn to the Paul Revere House that used to be the home of American patriot, Paul Revere but now it operates as a non-profit museum managed by the Paul Revere Memorial Association. There is a small fee to be paid to enter the museum, but it’s worth it.

The North End has been touted as the place to go for authentic Italian food, so while you are there with your friends, you can easily pick any one of the restaurants and caf├ęs and enjoy the good food with almost no complains at all. Perhaps the only complain would be that you have to leave the eatery and continue your tour in this magnificent place. While you are strolling along the North End, you will also be able to enjoy beautiful music playing from open air restaurants.

Even though the North End is also known as Little Italy in Boston, not everything there is “only Italian”. Take a walk after having your food and drinks, for a little shopping for some gifts to bring home and you will soon realize that there are many wonderful shops to shop for gifts, apparels and others.

All in all, North End has about 12 places that are found on the National Register of Historic Places and although you may not be able to visit all 12 of them, you can always go back on another trip on the rented bus to visit what you may have missed out this trip. We are pretty sure your friends would not mind making another trip to this Little Italy in Boston in the near future!
