Is a charter bus rental a good idea for a corporate trip?
A charter bus lets you be more efficient. Because you’ll travel together, you won’t have to wait for everyone to arrive, and can better manage your time. In addition, you can use the bus for meetings, both to and from your destination.
Should I go to a game on a charter bus rental?
Absolutely. A huge part of the fun of a big game is sharing the experience with others. On a charter bus, you’ll join fellow fans for all the revelry, and you’ll have your own designated driver.
Why take a charter bus to a public event?
When you travel on a charter bus, you won’t have to park a mile away, try to find the venue or battle traffic. We’ll drop you off right where the action is.
How about a charter bus rental for a school trip?
A charter bus gives you maximum control over where your students are, and helps keep young drivers off busy roadways. It’s also a terrific opportunity for student to make new friendships.
When you travel on a charter bus, it’s easy to experience the many eclectic neighborhoods in Houston:
Home to 19 cultural institutions, from the Health Museum to the Museum of Fine Arts, from the Czech Center Museum to the Museum of Natural Science, the Museum District also offers amazing places to eat and quench your thirst.
One of the oldest neighborhoods in Houston, the Heights offers small, one-of-a-kind dining experiences in a quiet area with ample access to parks and walking trails.
Home to one of the largest Chinese American communities in the country, Houston’s Chinatown offers an amazing array of Asian eateries, as well as shops carrying anything you could want. You can spend all day in the Hong Kong City Mall.
For a hip vibe, check out this rapidly gentrifying community, a former industrial area that now has some of the city’s most popular clubs and restaurants, as well as the legendary “graffiti park,” comprised of blocks of building murals.
There’s always something fun going on in Houston…plan your trip around one of these major events:
Held at the end of February, this event includes bronco busting, bull riding, barrel racing and steer wrestling, as well as live concerts with international headliners and one of the nation’s best barbecue contests.
Come to Houston in April for one of the nation’s largest watercraft shows, featuring everything from fishing boats to multi-million-dollar yachts, as well as booths selling a wide selection of marine gear.
Visit Houston in August for one of the nation’s largest jazz festivals, annually staged at the House of Blues. Former headliners have included native Houstonian Hubert Laws, a Grammy nominated flutist.
The dates fluctuate from year to year, but this popular festival is always held in the fall. Look for great food, up-tempo music, a wide array of merchandise vendors and an annual car show.
Bring your appetite to Houston in August, and take your pick from more than 250 local restaurants, all offering prix-fixe menus, with most of the proceeds going to the nation’s largest food bank.
Think Comic-Con meets Lollapalooza—it’s the largest pop culture event in Texas, drawing comic book, science fiction and other pop culture enthusiasts. There’s a film festival and a literary conference, and, of course, lots of gaming.
Also held in April, this 25-year-old cultural festival pays homage to Japanese culture, with events involving Japanese music and dance, origami, martial arts and bonsai. Take part in a traditional tea ceremony or visit Sake Village.
It’s a little bit out of the city, but well worth it to travel to the nation’s third largest Mardi Gras celebration, also one of the oldest in the country, dating back about 150 years. Parades, live music, dance parties…it’s all here.
Amazing cultural attractions…a rich and diverse culinary scene…some of the most unique and interesting museums in the country…the Houston Space Center.
