Start Your Grand Adventure in Lowell with a Charter Bus Ride
Textile Mills, Factories, Museums, Sports Venues and Much, Much More
Lowell has come a long way from being the textile center for the region back when it was founded in the 1820s. Located along Merrimack River, you can be sure to find many romantic and scenic spots to hang out when the night falls, historical buildings and landmarks that have retained their historical value and of course, numerous textile-themed museums and visitors’ centers. After all, downtown Lowell was popular for its countless textile and brick mills and factories. Lowell is also one of New England’s most architecturally-fascinating cities to visit in a charter bus.
You can take the rented charter bus to significant landmark locations like Boot Cotton Mills Museum and Mill Girls Museum or catch a good show at Merrimack Repertory Theater. Shopping is a popular tourist activity in downtown Lowell but if you are game for baseball, try organizing a group trip to LeLacheur Park instead. There are various exhibits in Lowell National Historical Park to help you learn about locals and their way of life but it is only at places like Whistler House Museum of Art that people can get behind-the-scene insights about local artistic talents.
