As the biggest city in New England, Boston has a lot to offer. A historic city bursting with museums, historic sites, sports, and culture, Boston attracts over 16 million tourists a year. Whether you need to rent a bus in Boston or charter a bus there, Metropolitan Shuttle has the vehicles to accommodate your group.
Boston is a paradise for sports lovers, as home to teams in all four major U.S. professional sports leagues, as well as Major League Soccer: The Red Sox (baseball), Celtics (basketball), Bruins (ice hockey), Patriots (football), and the New England Revolution (soccer). Sports fans can take in a game at the famous Fenway Park, Gillette Stadium, and TD Garden. Having won ten championships since 2001 between its sports teams, Boston is sometimes referred to as “TitleTown, USA” and was briefly in the running to host the 2024 Summer Olympic Games before withdrawing its bid in July 2015.
The weather in New England tends to be unpredictable, with cold winters and sometimes humid summers. Summer, however, remains the ideal time to go to Boston, whether you’re visiting Beacon Hill or the beaches. But no matter what time of year you decide to visit, Metropolitan Shuttle is here to help you arrive in style.
Boston is split into several neighborhoods, including:
- The North End, often called “Little Italy.” Boasting over eighty Italian restaurants and eateries, the North End is also home to the Old North Church and Paul Revere House.
- Back Bay, the high-end district of Boston, featuring exclusive shopping and upscale bars and restaurants, as well as the Boston Public Garden.
- Beacon Hill, a beautiful historic neighborhood close tothe Boston Common, one of the most famous public spaces in Boston.
- Charlestown, formerly home to the Navy Yard, now an area for young professionals with an historic flavor. Here, visitors can find Bunker Hill Monument, the U.S.S. Constitution, and many more iconic landmarks.
Though Boston has many walking tours available, a minibus is a great way to get around and see all Boston has to offer. In addition, MIT and Harvard are in Cambridge, just across the river, easily accessible by minibus or shuttle bus. Metropolitan Shuttle is happy to help with planning a day trip or other local transportation to help you see Boston’s many historical sights.
Party Bus Rental Boston
Here are just a few of the many things to do — historic and otherwise — while in Boston.
Fans of the Red Sox (or baseball in general) will be thrilled to take a tour of “America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.” At 104 years old, Fenway is an historical monument to America’s pastime. Visitors can charter a bus to Boston, get a guided tour, and learn about the history of the Red Sox from up close, taking in an enormous collection of memorabilia showcasing such team greats as Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and Carl Yastrzemski.
Boston Common and Public Garden
If you’re coming to Boston during the warmer months, this is a must. Boston Common is the oldest public park in the U.S. and an historic site for public assembly. Charles Lindbergh, Pope John Paul II, and Martin Luther King, Jr. have all spoken here. Visitors can enjoy the scenery, frog pond, sidewalk vendors, and shade, or take a ride in the iconic Swan Boats. Afterward, enjoy a drink in the “Cheers” bar across the street before heading out to see the other historic sites in the city.
Freedom Trail Walking Tour
For those who want a more self-guided experience, there’s the Freedom Trail city walk. A single red line along the sidewalk leads visitors two and a half miles to sixteen historically significant sites, with museums and educational opportunities along the way. This is a great opportunity for a school bus rental and a day trip to Boston to learn about the city’s rich history.
The Museum of Fine Art, Boston
The fourth largest art museum in the United States, the Museum of Fine Art (or MFA) gathers over one million visitors a year. Founded in 1870, the MFA has over 346,000 items in its collection, including Egyptian sarcophagi, French impressionist works, Chinese calligraphy, and a hundred and thirty pieces from the Rothschild family. The MFA’s collection also includes iconic and instantly recognizable portraits of Paul Revere and George Washington, as well as such classic pieces as Winslow Homer’s The Fog Warning and Rosso Fiorentino’s The Dead Christ With Angels.
New England Aquarium
Bringing in over 1.3 million visitors every year, the New England Aquarium boasts a 200,000-gallon ocean tank that simulates a Caribbean coral reef. This tank is home to bonnethead sharks, moray eels, stingrays, sea turtles, and more. The aquarium also features exhibits of African penguins, sea dragons, anacondas, electric eels, batfishes, California sea lions, and many others. To top it off, there’s also an IMAX theater with daily shows related to the marine life on display. Located at Central Wharf along Atlantic Avenue, the New England Aquarium is readily accessible via coach bus rental in Boston.
