Mar 15, 2013 - Boston by Rental Bus

One of the United States’ oldest cities, Boston stands as both a home to many modern attractions and a testament to America’s rich past. As the site of many of the events that shaped America's founding, the city teems with history from the country’s earliest days. Boston offers an abundance of tourist attractions that give rental bus visitors a taste of the city’s past and present, and one of the best ways of getting in and around Boston is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Boston Bus Rentals.

Downtown Boston, is easily accessible by rental bus, and offers an array of historical sites to visit such as the house in which Benjamin Franklin was born and the Old South Meeting House, located across from each other on Washington Street. The old South Meeting House where the colonists planned the Boston Tea Party, currently has a display of historical artifacts dating back to the late 1700s. The National African American Historic Park, located on Beacon Street, consists of a pre-Civil War African American community of buildings, schools and houses. Rental bus visitors should make it a point to stop at Boston Common, which is the oldest park in the United States and is the beginning of the Freedom Trail, which connects historical landmarks through the city. Boston Common is home to monuments and Frog Pond, a popular children's area filled with botanical gardens. Downtown Boston is also home to Faneuil Hall Marketplace on the East End, featuring Quincy Market, and North and South Market for shopping and enjoying urban street acts.

Beacon Hill is a quaint and higher-end area of Boston filled with brownstone homes, brick sidewalks and a plethora of cultural points of interest. Take a trip in your rental bus to Beacon Hill, and visit attractions such as the Bull and Finch Bar, more infamously known as Cheers, and the Boston Athenaeum, a library filled with historical literature and an art gallery are situated on Beacon Street. Hatch Memorial Shell, located on Storrow Memorial Drive in Beacon Hill, is an outdoor concert venue that hosts performances such as the Boston Pops 4th of July celebration. The Institute of Contemporary Art, located on Northern Avenue, provides visual art exhibits for rental bus visitors to enjoy.

The Back Bay region of Boston is a short rental bus ride southwest of Boston Common. Back Bay’s Copley Square is a bustling area filled with restaurants, businesses and shops. Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox, is located in Back Bay. Rental bus visitos may opt to visit the field or take in a game during baseball season. The Boston Museum of Fine Arts sits on Huntington Avenue in Boston's Back Bay District and displays more than 200 galleries worth of artifacts, including Egyptian sculptures and Japanese ceramics. Exhibits incorporate various cultures, historical periods and modern art pieces.
