The Boston Marathon

Driving in Boston is not for the faint of heart. A less than ideal road system, due to the layout of a city that was ‘grown’, rather than planned, makes Boston Bus Rentals services a logical choice when it comes to traveling. Due to the historic nature of Boston, and it being one of the oldest cities in the United States, it comes as no surprise to learn that the Boston Marathon is the second oldest foot race in the country.

Beginning in April of 1897, the Boston Marathon was organized by the Boston Athletic Association. Held on Patriot’s Day, or the third Monday of April, this historical foot race has continued to this day, making it the oldest continuously run marathon in world. It’s inclusion into the list of the five World Marathon Majors, has made the Boston Marathon famous among runners around the world, both amateur and professional.

The Boston Marathon is a point to point race for Boston charter bus tourists and visitors from out of town. This means that the race finishes at a different point from the start, as opposed to the start/finish line being at the same location, as in most other marathons. From its starting point in Hopkinton, the Boston Marathon course traverses winding course through the city, finishing at the center of the city in Copley Square, alongside the Boston Public Library.

The Boston Marathon is considered to be one of the more difficult races on the world marathon calendar. This is because the marathon runs across a series of hills. When you come and join up this amazing Boston charter event, you will get to explore the well-known Newton Hills, which culminate in Heartbreak Hill, near Boston College. Situated on the course where most runners are at the point of “hitting the wall”, many runners are forced to a walking pace.

In 2011, Geoffrey Mutai ran the world’s fastest ever marathon in a time of 2:03.02 at Boston. Although there was some controversy over the non recognition of the record by governing bodies, measures are being taken to amend the rules to allow inclusion of Mutai’s record breaking run.

Over 500,000 watch the Boston Marathon, which raises money for over 20 charities. It is touted as New England’s most widely viewed sporting event. Crowds line both sides of the course to cheer on runners, providing them with drinks and snacks. They are especially supportive of amateur runners.

All this adds up to major traffic congestion in Boston when the marathon is held. To avoid any traffic delays, one option would be to hire a charter bus, coach bus, passenger charter bus, party bus, mini bus or school bus from Boston Bus Rentals to ensure that your group can get to where they need to be on time, in safety and comfort.

Bottoms up in Boston

Get ready for a treat as you’re going to see a side of Boston that you thought only existed on television with Boston Bus Rentals.
If you thought that pub Cheers on television where everybody knows your name and where Coach, Sam, Diane, Carla and Woody worked was pure fiction, then get ready for a bit of schooling, Boston style.
Although the series was fiction, the pub Cheers is real and was originally called The Bull and Finch Pub and they renamed the place Cheers Beacon Hill in 2002 in honor of the show. All our party bus, charter bus customers who were fans of the series made their way there just to have a look and feel. Do note however, that the TV series only shot the exterior of the Bull & Finch and not its interiors, so the pub looks nothing like the Cheers bar.
The original outlet is located on Beacon Street in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of Boston. Meanwhile, make use of a party bus to visit it’s sister outlet is located at Faneuil Hall Marketplace at Quincy Market in south Boston. (This outlet’s interior resembles that of the one from the television show).
The pub has become so much a part of local Boston society that when longtime Cheers bartender Eddie Doyle, was laid off in 2009 due to the recession, the block on which the pub resides was renamed Eddie Doyle square in his honor. It is most definitely worth a stop during your party bus tour.
Have a drink or two and walk off the buzz across from Cheers Beacon Street at your choice of either Boston Public Gardens or Boston Common. This can be easily done with charter bus service or use of public transportation alike. These two parks are considered ‘jewels’ and form the northern part of Emerald Necklace, an 1,100-acre (4.5 km2) chain of parks linked by parkways and waterways in Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts.
The main difference between the two parks is that Boston Common was designed as an unstructured open space while Boston Public Garden contains a lake and a large series of formal and seasonal plantings. Take a stroll here or just drive by and look out the window of the mini bus that you have rented...the sight is really amazing.
So head over to the pub where everybody knows your name with Boston Bus Rentals for a cold and follow it up with a walk in the Emerald Necklace and you’ll be enjoying a true blue Boston experience unlike any other.

Party - LGBT Style!

People do all sorts of activities to release stress – from mountain climbing to taking a day off to pamper oneself at the spa. But the most common way, and one that we’ve been doing since we were teenagers, is to party. However, there is also that common saying, though not derogatory, that says “LGBTs gives out the best parties!” Today, we will cover our five picks for LGBT party venues.
If you’re going to go out with a bunch of friends, save money on cab rides and parking – give us a call for our Boston bus rentals tour packages.
Club Café
Club Cafe is very popular, especially during the weekends. We know this for a fact because the place is PACKED during this time. The club was renovated recently and now features three rooms that are sure to please everyone – Dance Club, Video Lounge and the brand new Napoleon Room. Oh yes, they also have a restaurant on site if you want to grab a pre-party bite.
Jacque’s Cabaret
This is truly where you want to be for the best drag show in town, literally! Our Boston bus rentals customers loved the news that part of Jacque’s Cabaret’s charm lies not only in its performers, which goes through a rotation. But its charm lies on its venue as well, given that it’s not located at the swankiest of location. Please remember to keep the noise level down and don’t forget to bring cash as credit cards are not accepted.
It’s a paradise, all right, if you’re into men and there are an abundance of them here. Located just over the river, it is located near M.I.T. The two floor establishment features a dance floor on the first floor but head up towards the second floor for a great selection of beers. Also, good to note that Paradise has hot male dancers to entertain you six nights a week and there are also screenings of “special” films late at night. If staying safe is tops on your priority list, we would love to assist you with our Boston bus rentals services.
28 Degrees
Admittedly, it is first and foremost a restaurant. But when you mix gourmet food and drinks together, you get a chic and swanky crowd that stays until late at night. Catering to a lounge atmosphere, the in-house DJ plays “a blend of down tempo, jazzy, soulful and cross generational music nightly.”
Fritz Lounge
If you think the LGBT community doesn’t like sports, think again. Proud to be “Boston’s Gay Sports Bar”, those who used our Boston bus rentals vehicles agree that Fritz Lounge has great selection of beers, great food, good music and ample TVs to watch the game. If you’re a huge Red Sox and NE Patriots fan, you’re in luck, as they play every single game the team plays on their TVs.
So there you go - five different selections for five different moods. If you’re going to bar hop at these locations, or any other locations for the matter, and do not want to be bogged down with who’s driving, call us for a party bus rental at 1-800-304-1993.
