Take a Bite of the Big Apple on a New York Bus Charter
Rent a Bus to See Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens & Staten Island
Like the song says, “New York, New York! It’s a helluva town.” But conquering the Big Apple in one visit is impossible. Between Manhattan and the outer boroughs — Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island — there is just too much ground to cover.
The guide books suggest starting with the “must-sees” – the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Metropolitan Museum of Art – and then exploring scenic Central Park. With those checked off your list, shop, see a Broadway musical, visit the Bronx Zoo or cheer on the Knicks at Madison Square Garden. At night, there’s great food, cocktails, live music and dancing.
Whether it’s a family vacation, a corporate outing or a shopping weekend with the girls, you can rely on US Coachways and its fleet of luxury buses to get you where you need to go. We offer great bus rental rates and personal customer service, making us the ideal choice for all types of community and church groups, school trips and team travel as well as special occasions such as birthdays, family reunions and bachelor parties and other wedding activities.
We offer bus charter rentals for groups of all sizes throughout New York state, including Buffalo, Albany and Long Island. Hand us your itinerary and our staff of customer specialists, drivers and dispatchers will take it from there.
From Broadway to the Bronx Zoo, NYC Has It All
There is no shortage of points of interest and things to do in New York City. From the Bronx to the Battery, below are some of what the Big Apple has to offer.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — The amusements found in New York City are as varied as the city itself. Catch a Broadway show or settle in for some laughs at the famed comedy club Caroline’s on Broadway. Head out to Coney Island’s well-trod boardwalk and ride the grandfather of the American roller coaster—the legendary Cyclone. In the summer, there are street fairs almost every weekend, and free concerts draw crowds to Brooklyn’s famed Prospect Park Bandshell.
- Arts & Cultural — The New York City arts and culture scene is a vast portrait dotted with galleries from Chelsea to Williamsburg, art studios and fabulous collections and exhibits such as those found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Cloisters and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. If its performing arts you want, visit Lincoln Center, home of the Metropolitan Opera and Jazz at Lincoln Center, or get a ticket for a concert at famed Carnegie Hall.
- Restaurants & Shopping — From famous fashion designers to a slice of heaven at Famous Joe’s Pizza in Greenwich Village, New York is a playground for those looking to eat and shop. The upscale French menu at Le Cirque appeals to some, while others prefer the pastrami sandwiches at Katz’s Deli or the Italian fare found on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx or the Asian delights of Chinatown. As for shopping, the options range from glitzy to not. There’s Saks Fifth Avenue’s 10-story department store and a string other designer flagships on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue and trendy shops in the West Village, while Brooklyn plays host to weekend flea markets filled with antiques, food and clothing.
- Golf Courses & Sports Venues — New Yorkers don’t kid around when it comes to their professional sports, whether its the World Series-winning New York Yankees or the U.S. Open tennis championship held every year at Flushing Meadows in Queens. Madison Square Garden in Manhattan is home to the New York Rangers and the Knicks. The New York Mets battle their major league rivals at City Field. Looking for something more low key? The Yankees and Mets have single-A farm teams playing in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
- Historical Sites & Landmarks — Every step through New York City tells a story, from the marvel of St. Patrick’s Cathedral to the statues of twin lions guarding the entrance to the New York Public Library. Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, explore Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial, grab a ferry ride to the Statue of Liberty or see the world from the observation deck of the Empire State building.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — New York City may be a bustling metropolis with more than eight million residents, but it's surprisingly easy to find tranquility within the five boroughs. The 843-acre Central Park, located in the middle of Manhattan, is perhaps the most famous of the city’s urban oases. Yet NYC boasts 29,000 acres of parkland, including Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, Battery Park in lower Manhattan and the Staten Island Greenbelt.
- Zoos & Aquariums — At 265 acres, the Bronx Zoo has been a must see attraction in tour books for decades, showcasing thousands of species from gorillas of the Congo to the snow leopards of the Himalayas. Yet every borough in New York has a zoo. The Central Park Zoo houses polar bears and sea lions, while pumas play at the Queens Zoo and crowds flock to view the kangaroos at the Brooklyn Zoo. At the Staten Island Zoo, meanwhile, there’s an extensive collection of rattlesnakes.
- Other Points of Interest — Thousands of Staten Island residents depend on the Staten Island Ferry to travel to Manhattan every day for work. For tourists, it’s a free 25-minute cruise from lower Manhattan to Staten Island that takes them around the Statue of Liberty with amazing views of New York’s skyline from New York Harbor. Landlubbers can take in the flora and the fauna of the New York Botanical Gardens. Or if its celebrities you want, New York City is home to many TV shows looking for audience members from "Saturday Night Live" to "Live! With Kelly & Michael.
