Mar 19, 2013 - Touring Texas in a Charter Bus
A big state like Texas has many popular tourist attractions, and it fulfills charter bus visitors expectations completely. Things to see and do in Texas range from famous historical sites to amusement parks to natural wonders. For getting around Texas, there is no better way of doing it than with a bus, charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coach or school bus chartered from Bus Charter Texas.
Six Flags Over Texas located on 212 acres in Arlington, a short charter bus ride outside the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Warner Brothers cartoon characters, like Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck, wander Six Flags to interact with charter bus visitors waiting in line for their chance to get on rides with themes related to DC comic book figures and other cartoon characters. Batman: The Ride is the signature roller coaster of the park and takes charter bus visitors up 11 stories at speeds topping 50 mph. Other popular rides include Tony Hawk’s Big Spin, Yosemite Sam’s Gold River Adventure and the Aquaman Splashdown.
Natural Bridge Caverns are 30 minutes charter bus ride north of downtown San Antonio. This natural attraction offers adventures for charter bus visitors of all ages. You have a choice of tours including the Discovery Tour, which takes you on a guided excursion to view the ancient formations in the cavern. The adventurers in your charter bus group can try their skills on the Watchtower, one of the largest outdoor climbing towers in Texas. After making it to the top of the tower, you can take the zipline back down to the ground in a matter of seconds.
Take a charter bus and pay a visit to Amarillo's Don Harrington Discovery Center, which has interactive exhibits for charter bus visitors of all ages. Planetarium shows, raptor programs, kinetic weather machines and life-science exhibits are among the permanent displays. Charter bus visitors can view animals from the Great Plains, as well as animals from around the world, live at the Amarillo Zoo. Visit the "Panhandle Plains Overlook" to see native bison, elk and pronghorn roaming a five-acre enclosure. In the "Native Wildlife" area, look for coatimundi, coyotes, foxes and raccoons.
A charter bus visit to South Texas is not complete without a visit to one of the state's ranches. King Ranch, one of the largest ranches in the world, includes 825,000 acres of land in South Texas, with 60,000 cattle and 300 quarter horses. Guided tours of the ranch present charter bus visitors with the history, as well as the modern workings of the ranch.
