Phoenix Charter Bus Rentals
Arizona’s largest city and one of the largest cities in the American Southwest, Phoenix, Arizona is the cultural and economic hub of the region and also has the distinction of having the hottest weather of any large US city. If you’ve ever been to Phoenix in the summer, there’s no need to tell you just how hot it can get, with temperatures routinely rising into the triple digits throughout the season. With a climate that can take some getting used to, your group may want to get around town with a Metropolitan Shuttle Phoenix bus rental instead – comfortable seats and air conditioning are ideal for sightseeing in Arizona’s aptly named “Valley of the Sun”.
In comparison to many other major American cities, Phoenix is something of a newcomer, only having been formally established after the civil war; the names Pumpkinville, Salina and Stonewall were all proposed before Phoenix was finally adopted as the name, with the town being formally recognized in 1868. The arrival of rail links made the city an important transportation center for goods headed to and from the west coast and the population of Phoenix swelled rapidly, growing to a city of 100,000 by 1950.
Phoenix has become known as a destination for leisure travel, with the Phoenix area being especially popular with golfers and winter vacationers seeking somewhere a little warmer. Tourism is one of the city’s largest economic sectors and there is a wide variety of entertainment, shopping and dining to entice visitors as well as some cultural attractions which rival those of any other major US city. The Arizona Opera and Ballet Arizona frequently perform in the city; events which a Phoenix bus charter can bring your group to in comfort, no matter how high the mercury climbs.
Since charter buses let you set your very own custom itinerary, you can ensure that you’ll be able to visit any of Phoenix’s many museums on your trip here, including the Heard Museum, a treasure trove of Hopi and Navajo cultural artifacts, including hundreds of exquisite kachina dolls, a Navajo Hogan and more. This is a world famous museum which draws hundreds of thousands of visitors annually and is something you won’t want to leave out. The Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix Zoo, Children’s Museum and many others are all conveniently located here as well; especially convenient with a Phoenix rental bus to get you from museum to museum.
Sports fans aren’t left out either. The Arizona Diamondbacks, Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Coyotes and Arizona Cardinals represent the city as its Major League Baseball, NBA, NHL and NFL franchises, as well as several minor league teams. Whether it’s Native American culture, Old West history, the austere beauty of the Sonoran Desert or modern cultural amenities and sports, Phoenix, Arizona is a city which has something to offer everyone. Whether your visit is for business or pleasure, with family or friends, you’ll find something to love here in Phoenix; and you can make your stay even more enjoyable with a Metropolitan Shuttle Phoenix bus charter which lets you revel in the sun’s warmth; but not too much.
