Boston on the bounce

Beautiful Boston, Massachusetts is a historical city worth visiting any time of the year, especially with kids, using a rental bus. The largest city and urban center of New England, visiting Boston is made easy with a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coaches or school bus rented from Boston Bus Rentals. Traveling around Boston with a stylish, comfortable rental bus makes good sense, because you can give your full attention to your kids while your reliable rental bus driver takes care of the driving.
When visiting Boston, and you have the kids in the rental bus with you, make sure you stop at the Boston Children’s Museum. Holding over 50,000 items in its permanent collection that are exhibited on a rotation basis, the Boston Children’s Museum is dedicated to the education of children in an amusing and informative way, without the rigid structure of traditional teaching methods. Best suited for kids aged 10 and below, the museum offers a hands on, interactive educational experience, with an emphasis on environmental awareness, science, health, culture and arts. The Boston Children’s Museum is a quick rental bus ride from downtown Boston, and is worth a visit any time of the year for its constantly changing temporary exhibits.
Head down to the Boston waterfront in your rental bus, and visit the New England Aquarium. Opened in 1969, the New England Aquarium is home to a wide range of sea and land creatures. Some of the animals that call the aquarium home are African penguins, Atlantic Harbor seals, green sea turtles, sharks, stingrays and lionfish. Of particular note are the Amazing Jellies exhibit and the Thinking Gallery. The Amazing Jellies exhibit showcases moon jellies, sea nettles, upside-down jellies, Palauan Lagoon jellies and Australian spotted jellies, from diverse habitats around the world. For a hands on experience, try the Edge of the Sea tide pool, where visitors can touch sea stars, sea urchins, snails, hermit crabs, and horseshoe crabs, or the Shark and Ray Touch Tank, giving you an up close experience with cownose rays and chain dog fish. Children aged 9 and older can feed and play with the seals, or give them a bath, in the Come Play with the Seals program. Just don’t take the seal home on the rental bus with you!
Get off the rental bus at Faneuil Hall in the middle of Boston and take the Little Feet Freedom Trail Tour. Tailored for children aged 6 to 12, this walking tour follows a trail that showcases the historical buildings and sites that were important in the American Revolution, and lead to the formation of the United States. Among the sites covered are the former Boston Latin School, the first public school in the United States; the Old South Meeting House; Faneuil Hall and the Old State House. Everyone gets an Explorer’s Map that highlights the sites they’ve visited, and offers information on other interesting sites nearby.
