Raleigh-Durham charter buses

Originally named for explorer Sir Walter Raleigh, Raleigh is the capital of North Carolina. Known as the “City of Oaks,” Raleigh is home to over 450,000 people, with over two million in the greater metropolitan area.

One of Raleigh’s claims to fame is being part of the Research Triangle, along with Durham and Chapel Hill. The name comes from Research Triangle Park, where many high-tech companies make their home, along with the many universities and research centers in the area, including Duke University, North Carolina State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Raleigh is a city of rich culture and history, with a long tradition of performing arts and a focus on art, natural science, and history at its universities. There are a wealth of museums, theaters, and historic sites to see in Raleigh. With so much to see and do, you’ll want to book a charter bus to get around Raleigh, NC — and Metropolitan Shuttle can help. Whether you need a minibus rental or a Raleigh NC party bus rental, we have the expertise to help you plan, organize and schedule your trip.

North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences

The Museum of Natural Sciences is the oldest and largest museum of its kind in the Southeast. It attracts over one million visitors annually, making it the most popular museum in the state. Exhibits at the museum include “Natural Treasures of North Carolina” (featuring dioramas of wildlife and nature), a 3-D theater, gem and mineral displays, a “Discovery Room” for hands-on interaction. The third floor of the museum features exhibits on prehistoric life, while the fourth floor is home to the Living Conservatory — a dry tropical forest exhibit featuring live plants and animals. Pack your kids or students onto a charter bus in Raleigh and spend the day at the museum!

Pullen Park

For a relaxing picnic on the grass, head to Pullen Park, a 66-acre public park in downtown Raleigh. The park not only features a pond and accompanying Pullen Aquatic Center, but there are also several small rides (including a carousel) and venues for life performing arts. If you’re the hiking sort, you’re in luck — Pullen Park is a part of the East Coast Greenway, a full 3,000 miles of trail that stretches from Florida up to Maine. The Aquatic Center offers an Olympic swimming pool, outdoor patio, and annual diving competitions.

Marbles Kids Museum

The slogan of the Marbles Kids Museum is to “spark imagination, discovery and learning through play.” It features interactive, hands-on experiments and exhibits with an eye toward encouraging creative thinking and education. Its daily activities aim toward motivating kids to be active, innovate, communicate, and embrace “green” ideals. There is also an IMAX theater playing daily documentaries.

Frankie’s Fun Park

Frankie’s Fun Park is a favorite destination for families and corporate events. Visitors can enjoy a round of mini golf, blast each other with laser tag, race go-karts, and bumper boats, or enjoy one of the many dark rides and coasters on site. There are also batting cages and arcade games. If you get hungry after all that fun, the cafe offers nachos, sandwiches, burgers, wings and dogs. Frankie’s also offers catering packages, from ten to two thousand people or anywhere in between. Metropolitan Shuttle can help book your next fun corporate trip if you need a charter bus rental in Raleigh.

North Carolina State Fair

If you’re planning to be in Raleigh in October, you shouldn’t miss the North Carolina State Fair, which happens every year from October 12-22. The fair features a career tent, a flower and garden show, the “State Fair Ark” (featuring over sixty breeds of farm animals), as well as concerts and fireworks shows. Past performers at the North Carolina State Fair have included Bruce Springsteen, Clay Aiken, Blake Shelton, Little Richard, Ray Charles, and many others. And, of course, there are roller coasters, rides, and games.
