Mar 29, 2013 - Doing Dallas with a Rental Bus

With the slogan “Live Large, Think Big,” Dallas prides itself on being a city of big dreams and is the ninth largest city in the United States. Rental bus visitors from most North American cities can reach Dallas by plane within four hours and tour the city via a 45-mile light rail system. Dallas is the most popular visitor destination in Texas and features expansive shopping areas, well-known professional sports teams, historical sites and amusement parks. One of the best ways of seeing Dallas is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from Bus Rental Dallas.

Located in western Dallas, about 20 minutes rental bus ride from the downtown area, the Six Flags Over Texas amusement park features more than 100 rides and attractions, shows and parades. The park is open daily in the summer and on weekends in the spring and fall and includes rides rated mild, moderate and maximum, depending on the speed and height. More than 20 dining options are available at Six Flags, including hot dog stands, sit-down cafes and a smokehouse with giant turkey legs. Daily or seasonal passes are offered at Six Flags, and events and festivals vary according to season.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the events surrounding the Dallas assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. The museum is located on the sixth and seventh floors of the former Texas School Book Depository and features a wide array of artifacts, including 400 photographs and 45 minutes of documentary film. A self-guided tour is available for rental bus visitors and extends outside the museum to Dealey Plaza and other nearby sites. The Sixth Floor Museum is operated by the Dallas County Historical Foundation, and their estimate of annual attendance is more than 325,000 visitors. The museum is located in Dallas’ historic district at the intersection of Elm and North Houston streets.

Dallas Heritage Village is a 13-acre living history museum focusing on pioneer life in Dallas between 1840 and 1910. Costumed interpreters welcome rental bus visitors to the village and portray historical figures from Dallas's early history. Living exhibits, which are all interactive, include a bank, general store, saloon, school and a farm. Audio, self-guided and private tours are all available to rental bus visitors at the village, which is open daily except Mondays. Dallas Heritage Village is located in the southern area of downtown Dallas near Old City Park, with convenient renta bus access from Interstates 30 and 35.
