Houston, Texas is a huge and varied city, which makes using a rental bus the perfect way of seeing the city. Take a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Bus Companies Houston to make your travel logistics easier, and enjoy yourself as your reliable rental bus driver takes you and your group where you need to go. Cruise through Houston in style and comfort in a rental bus, and find out about some of the varied attractions this Texas sized city has to offer.
Located a short rental bus ride away in Houston's Downtown Theater District, Bayou Place is a 130,000 square foot entertainment megaplex that comprises of theaters, bars, lounges, and restaurants. Start the evening off with dinner at the legendary Hard Rock Café or the authentic Italian trattoria, Mingalone, followed by drinks and dancing at ROCBAR. Perhaps your charter bus group could catch an indie movie at the Angelika Film Center, or a live show at the Verizon Wireless Theater. Some legendary live acts have played at Bayou Place, including John Legend and B.B. King.
For a unique dining and educational experience all in one, take your rental bus over to the Downtown Aquarium where you can dine alongside a 150,000 gallon two storey tank containing over 200 species of fish. Watch White Tiger sharks swimming languidly while you dine, or pet a stingray at the touch pool. Rental bus visitors can wrap up an evening at the Downtown Aquarium by feasting on seafood, steaks and delicious desserts. The aquarium assures us that none of the seafood dishes come directly from their tanks, but are brought fresh from the sea. The Downtown Aquarium also offers a popular Sea Safari Summer Camp for kids, and a dazzling 100 foot carousel. At its highest point, rental bus visitors will get a spectacular view of the Houston skyline.
The Galleria Houston, Texas's largest mall, is an upscale shopping mall centrally located just outside Houston's Uptown District, and easily reached by rental bus.
