Mar 19, 2013 - School Charter Bus Rental Touring in Chicago

The Windy City is a busy city bustling with exciting events and attractions all year long for charter bus visitors. Chicago is full of culture, art, educational exhibits, a variety of food and restaurants, music, history and more. Rental bus visitors are likely to never grow bored in this eventful northern city in Illinois. Many attractions offer free admission, which makes it easy on those coming on school bus tours. A great way of touring Chicago and visiting her many attractions is with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus rented from School Bus Charter Rental.

Navy Pier is home to a 150-foot Ferris wheel, relaxing boat rides and tours along Lake Michigan and is ever popular with school bus visitors. There are a variety of tourist shops and a wide selection of places where rental bus visitors can wine and dine. There is also an IMAX theater that features a six-story screen that more than 80 feet wide. The Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows displays more than 150 different designs of stained glass windows. The Chicago Children's Museum at the pier is a place for charter bus visitors to learn and play. Fireworks are shot over the pier every Wednesday and Saturday night throughout the summer. Admission to Navy Pier is free, but additional costs may occur for extra activities.

Chicago is perhaps as well known for fabulous shopping as it is for cultural attractions and sports. With more than 250 designers and 400 independently owned boutiques calling Chicago home, it's no wonder the area draws rental bus visitors all over. The famed shopping area, the Magnificent Mile, on North Michigan Avenue, offers plenty of upscale and boutique shopping opportunities for charter bus visitors. Stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany & Co., American Girl Place, and Niketown all call this area home. Oak Street, located nearby, offers more shopping destinations with stores such as Prada, Kate Spade and Nicole Miller. Another shopping option is Macy's on State Street. This flagship store offers 10 floors of shopping excitement and variety.

For school bus visitors of the Chicago area looking for thrill rides and splash-tastic fun, there's no better place than Six Flags Great America & Hurricane Harbor. Less than one hour charter bus ride north of the city in suburban Gurnee, Six Flags Great America & Hurricane Harbor offers guests 50 rides, ranging from roller coasters to bumper cars and a full water park complete with slides and wave pool.

It occurs only once per year, but the Chicago Air and Water show remains one of the city's most popular attractions for rental bus visitors. Although North Avenue Beach serves as the focal point of the show, the amazing aquatic and airborne stunts can be seen from any beach along the waterfront. Event days are subject to change from one year to the next, but the Air and Water show typically takes place one weekend in August.
