Take a Charter Bus for a Great Trip to the Cradle of Liberty
Whether you’ve been to Boston a dozen times or it’s your first trip there, you’ll find no shortage of fun things to do. Take a guided tour through historic Boston and see some of the famous places where our independence from England took roots. Head over to one of the many restaurants along the waterfront and get some fresh lobster, oysters, clams and other seafood. Catch the Celtics, Patriots, Bruins and Red Sox, all perennial competitors for their respective championships.
Boston’s a big, vibrant and very busy city—you’ll have a much better time if you don’t have to get behind the wheel of a car. The best way to see Beantown. Travel in the comfort and luxury of a charter bus from BusRental.com.
Why It Makes Sense to Take a Charter Bus to Boston
If you’re headed to Beantown with a group of any size, you have decisions to make. None may be as important, though, as your choice of transportation. The rest of your trip can go without a hitch, but problems with your travel can put a damper on everything. There’s no other mode of travel that offers all the benefits of a charter bus:
- Flexibility—You tell us when you want to leave, where you want to stop, how long you want to stay and when you want to come home. In most instances, last-minute or on-the-fly changes can be made to your itinerary without a problem. We can usually book an entire trip with relatively little notice.
- Safety and security—Because you have an experienced and highly trained professional driving the bus, you’ll find charter bus travel to have the lowest accident rates of any mode of transportation. In addition, because there’s a single point of entry and exit, it’s easy to monitor who’s on the bus. You and your personal items will always be secure.
- Reliability—Did you know that, on average, more than 850,000 air travelers arrive late somewhere every day? That’s virtually unheard of with a charter bus. Your driver has access to resources to be able to anticipate traffic issues and find alternate routes. In addition, our access to a vast network of charter bus vendors nationwide makes it easier for us to find replacement coaches, if necessary.
- Comfort—There’s no other type of transportation with bigger seats or more leg room. An additional bonus—there’s no middle seat! The aisles are spacious and you don’t have to stay buckled in your seat.
- Hassle-free travel—Many of the little details that make other modes of travel frustrating don’t apply to charter bus rentals. You’ll never have to check the GPS, jockey for position in traffic, look for a parking place or check the time. Your driver will handle all those details. You’ll ride on the same coach for the whole trip, and you’ll have your personal items on board. No worries about lost bags or missed connections! There’s no TSA security checkpoint and you won’t have to put your phone on “bus mode.” Keep your shoes on, bring your personal toiletries and stay connected with friends and family.
- Your bus has multiple uses—It’s not just a way to get there and back. It’s ideal for group activities, from meetings to prep employees before a workshop to last-minute rehearsals on a choir tour to pep talks before a big game. On the other hand, it can also be a quiet refuge in the middle of a busy trip to Boston.
- Affordability—On a charter bus, you’ll spread out the costs of travel among all the participants. That typically makes it one of the most cost-effective ways to take a group anywhere.
- Use of the HOV (high occupancy vehicle) lanes—That can help keep you from getting stuck in Boston traffic
- You’ll travel green—A charter bus benefits the environment by taking a number of private vehicles off the roads, lowering carbon emissions.

Boston—The Things You Know You Want to Do
Here of some of the “must do” activities for a trip to Boston:
- Visit the historic landmarks and attractions—Walk the Freedom Trail, where many pivotal meetings took place during the early days of the American Revolution. See the Old North Church, site of the famous “one if by land, two if by sea” that informed Paul Revere and other patriots of the British invasion. Go to the Boston Harbor, where the storied tea party took place. There’s also the Bunker Hill Monument, the site of the Boston Massacre, the Harriet Tubman House and the Old South Meeting House
- Enjoy iconic food—You’ll want to have a lobster roll (the Neptune Oyster), down some chowder (Union Oyster House) and get a plate of fried clams, with fries and onion rings(Yankee Lobster). Get a bowl of homemade Boston baked beans at Durgin Park in Faneuil Hall. For dessert, head over to the Omni Parker House for an authentic Boston cream pie.
- See world-class art and cultural offerings—The Boston Symphony Orchestra is one of the finest in the world. Patrons of the arts will also enjoy the Boston Lyric Opera, the Handel and Haydn Society, and Shakespeare on the Boston Common. The city’s art museum has over 450,000 pieces in its collection, including works by Monet, Degas, Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh and Renoir.
Boston—Some Lesser Known Things that Can Make Your Trip Unique

- Pizza at Santarpios—There are lots of great pies in Boston, but this is the legend. It’s a cash-only, family run operation, with huge pies, simple toppings and the best crust on the planet. You haven’t had Boston ‘za if you haven’t been to Santarpios.
- One-buck shucks—You’ll find dozens of oyster bars, mom and pop restaurants and watering holes that serve dollar oysters
