Portland Charter Bus

Home to over 600,000 people (2.4 million in the greater metropolitan area), Portland sits astride the Willamette River, just to the west of breathtaking Mount Hood. Famous for its natural beauty, microbreweries, and eco-friendly sensibilities, Portland is a laid-back town with a wealth of relaxed charm and a thriving music and arts scene.

Portland is a paradise for beer enthusiasts, with over seventy breweries and hundreds of wineries only a short bus ride away. The city’s many parks, historic architecture, and plenitude of wildlife and walking trails also make it a haven for nature lovers. Despite its careful urban planning, however, Portland has developed something of a problem with traffic congestion — making a charter bus rental in Portland a smart choice for getting around the city.

Here are just a few of the things you can see and do in Portland.

Portland Japanese Garden

The Portland Japanese Garden, a part of Portland’s history since 1963, was built to invoke a sense of peace and tranquility. This beautiful nine-acre garden is divided into eight distinct garden spaces, including:

  • The Strolling Pond, which features a hundred-year-old pagoda lantern — a gift from Portland’s “sister city,” Sapporo.
  • The Natural Garden, containing beautiful waterfalls, ponds, and streams
  • The Sand and Stone Garden, which arranges stones in patterns reminiscent of ocean waves
  • The Tea Garden, which includes an authentic Japanese tea house for holding tea ceremony.

Oregon Zoo

Gather friends and family, book a charter bus rental in Portland, Oregon, and head to the zoo! Formerly known as the Washington Park Zoo, the Oregon Zoo first opened in 1888 when a private animal collector donated his collection to the city. Not only does the zoo feature extensive plant and animal exhibits, but it also hosts concert series in the summer and light shows during the holidays. Exhibits include the Africa Rainforest, Africa Savanna, Predators of the Serengeti, the Amazon Flooded Forest, and more. Visitors can see cheetahs, lions, red piranhas, giraffes, elephants, and dozens of other species.

Oregon Museum of Science and Industry

Enthusiasts of science and technology will find a wealth of knowledge at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, which features no less than three auditoriums, a planetarium, a big-screen theatre, and dozens of exhibits focused on the sciences. Foremost among the exhibits is the USS Blueback, the submarine that appeared in the movie The Hunt for Red October. Other exhibits include a hands-on chemistry laboratory, a Van de Graaf generator, a laser and holography lab, and the “Turbine Hall,” which features a retired steam turbine. The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry is the perfect destination for a school bus rental in Portland.

Wine Tours and Tastings

Wine tours and Portland party bus rentals: they just go together! It’s no secret that Portland is a wine lover’s Eden. With literally hundreds of wineries and breweries within hours of the city, it would be a shame to miss out on the many guided wine tours available all over the Willamette Valley. Hiring a tour guide and $BUS lets you sample from vineyards and wineries surrounding Portland without having to worry about a designated driver. For environmentally conscious wine lovers, there’s EcoTours, which combines wine-tasting with nature-gazing and a focus on the environment.

Portland Aerial Tram

Traveling at 500 feet above the city, the Portland Aerial Tram carries commuters between OHSU and the South Waterfront on a daily basis. Technically part of Portland’s public transportation system, the Tram offers a spectacular aerial view of the city and surrounding mountains. Visitors can enjoy a smooth ride up the mountainside and then relax on the deck at the top of the mountain.

Hoyt Arboretum

The Hoyt Arboretum sprawls across 189 acres, featuring over two thousand species of trees, many of which are endangered or vulnerable. The land upon which the Arboretum rests was originally donated to Portland as a park, and has grown through further land donations since. With twelve miles of trails, a visitor center, and a classroom, the Hoyt Arboretum is the perfect spot to chill out after a day of seeing the sights at the nearby Oregon Zoo or International Rose Test Garden.
