Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

Offering up layers upon layers of cultural diversity is what Dallas is all about. It is, after all, a city of nuance and absolute fun regardless of the intention of your visit and stay in the city center. Organizing a personalized tour around the city can be a very big challenge mainly because there are too many historical buildings, cultural hotspots, museums, parks and traditional tourist attractions to hit for one single vacation. Many people organize their own Dallas charter bus tours around the city, though, so nothing is impossible.
When you are in Dallas, never miss the chance to stop by SIxth Floor MUseum at Dealey Plaza, even if you have to make it a quick bus rental Dallas stopover. So, one might ask what this museum is all about....it is a small but extensive dedication to John F. Kennedy, one of the most important man in the history of America.
What makes this all the more important is the fact that on the day that Kennedy rode his motorcade through Dealey Plaza, on his way to Dallas Trade Mart, he was shot and moments after the shots were fired, someone spotted a lone gunman on the sixth floor of the plaza. Having known that, bus rental Dallas site is then commissioned and turned into a museum dedicated to educating the public about the life of this very important man.
Using tools like films, photographs, news reports, magazines, artifacts and documents, the museum highlights the assassination and the many reports that followed the event. It pays to know that the museum is completely funded by well-meaning individuals and corporations, as well as ticket sales.
We were quite surprised with the sheer number of documentation that was available here that can never be seen anywhere else. In fact, more documents, footages and photographs were produced and donated to the museum long after the event. For instance, back in 1999, Zapruder family contributed footages of moments before the assassination along with its copyrights. So, in order for anyone to see the footage, you would have to get in touch with the management of the museum before your bus rental Dallas visit.
Suffice to say, due to the museum’s unique theme, it remains to be one of the most popular tourist destinations (especially for foreigners) in North Texas. The sad fact is that most people do not remember or know (in person) about the event now - it has become a textbook story that students might learn about in books, the reality of which might not strike. Going through the exhibits makes the unfortunate historically significant event more real and the man, more of a real human being than an iconic figure.

Dallas Angelika Film Center

If you are looking for a place to watch some great independent and foreign films, you should really consider going to Dallas Angelika Film Center with your friends in a Dallas rental bus. You may be wondering why you need to rent a bus when you can drive to the place yourself – well, with the service of a professional bus driver, you and your friends do not have to decide who will be the designated driver and find a place to park your car when you get there. On top of that, you also can have the privilege of the rental bus service to bring you and your friends for dinner somewhere else before you catch a movie and after the movie, you can also go for some drinks too.

The theaters in Dallas Angelika Film Center may be a little smaller than some of the other places where you and your friends may frequent to watch movies, it is comfortable, clean and they also offer the usual snacks, such as popcorns and hot dogs, that you would find at any regular theaters as well. Not only that – they also have available wine and beer too. The other plus point about this place is that it is also surrounded by restaurants, hence you and your friends could always arrange with the Dallas bus rental company to send you to the one of the restaurants nearby for dinner before you catch your movie. If you are not sure where to eat, you could always ask the bus driver for suggestions.

At Dallas Angelika Film Center, they have great, if not excellent, selection of movies (that you usually would not be able to find at any regular theaters), especially their independent films. The moment you and your friends step into the place, the ambience makes you feel very comfortable and welcome. You wouldn’t find the place packed with noisy teenagers at any one of the typical AMC Movie theaters and if wines and beers are not what you would prefer to drink, don’t worry – they have a coffee bar. If you and your friends are watching a movie before dinner and are feeling a little hungry, they also have sandwiches from Breadwinners to keep your tummies full throughout the movie before you go for dinner afterwards. If you already told the Dallas rental bus driver of your plans to have dinner after the movie, you can be sure that the bus driver is waiting for you once you come out of the theater to hop onto it, so that he can send you and your friends to the restaurant of your choice for dinner.

Golf for all

Mention the word “golf” and almost immediately, you picture Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and the likes. However, did you know that you don’t have to be a professional to be able to play golf at TopGolf? Sounds a bit absurd to you? Well, if that’s the case, then you really need to check this place out personally at TopGolf that’s located at 8787 Park Lane, Dallas, TX 75231 in a rented Dallas bus – but don’t go by yourself, bring your friends with you; whether they are professional golfers or not and have fun! Oh, did we say fun? Yes, we did - because that’s true!

As you arrive at TopGolf in the Dallas rental bus with your friends, you will immediately notice that it is no different from any golf practice area where people with or without golf experience would go to play or practice their golf skills. However, what TopGolf founders did was to bring all the favorite leisure activities such as bowling, darts and golf and they combined all these together to make a unique outdoor game experience for everyone. What began as an idea between two brothers who had wanted to improve their game turned out to be a great form of outdoor sports entertainment for all! The irony of it all is that the idea of TopGolf came from hardcore golfers but it’s been said that more than half of the visitors to TopGolf say that they are not golfers themselves! This could only mean that even if you are not a golfer, you can still enjoy playing golf here and that it is really easy to play too.

Almost as soon as you step into the vicinity of TopGolf, you will see that people of all ages are there playing – and it doesn’t really matter if they know the game seriously or not. Imagine playing a game of darts or bowling with your friends, but the only thing is that you are hitting balls with a golf club and your scores are being detected and recorded digitally. This is made possible with the microchips in the balls that as you hit the golf ball, there is a reader in every section to detect the microchip in the ball, hence giving you the score based on the accuracy and distance that you have hit. The trick in getting a high score would be to try to get as close as possible to the center of the target, – it’s so easy that even kids are playing too.

Thanks-Giving Square, Dallas

Thanks-Giving Square was recently named “2012’s Best Mini-Oasis Downtown” and with this recognition, it gives you more than a reason to rent a bus and bring the whole family downtown Dallas to visit and find out what it is all about - especially if you have never been here before. One thing we can say about this place is that you will not regret visiting.
As you make your way to the Thanks-Giving Square in your Dallas rented bus, we are quite sure that the bus driver will tell you stories of the various celebrations and events that have taken place at the square in the past. Many people who have visited the Thanks-Giving Square always enjoy their visits there. The park is filled with unusual places for meditation and reflection as well as the exceptional architectural designs.
Thanks-Giving Square was designed by architect Philip Johnson and was dedicated in 1976 and the whole idea behind this is to encourage giving of thanks as a universal value - regardless of your religion background. Upon arriving at the main entrance of the Thanks-Giving Square in your rented bus, other than the atmosphere of serenity that you can feel, you will also almost immediately notice the Court of All Nations and the Wall of Praise and on the Wall of Praise, they feature a part of of Psalms 100 that says, “Enter in his gates with Thanksgiving and come into his courts with praise”, as well as a mosaic that is based on the works of Norman Rockwell’s “The Golden Rule”.
After having read the beautiful writings on the Wall of Praise, you will then move on to a fifty foot Bell Tower that displays 3 bronze bells that rings every hour. Right next to the Bell Tower is the Ring of Thanks and Circle of Giving and you will pass through it before you enter into the courtyard of the Thanks-Giving Square. Inside the Thanks-Giving Square is a chapel with its spiral tower made of stained glass - aptly named “Glory Window”, which also happens to be one of the biggest horizontally mounted stained glass pieces that the world has.
Various events and programs take place at the Thanks-Giving Square all year round and after this first visit, you may want to find out when the next event will be held at the square and start making arrangements with the bus rental company to bring you and your family here again.

Originally known as the Dallas State Fair and Exposition, the State Fair began in 1886. Organized by a group of Dallas businessmen, the Dallas State Fair was primarily a livestock show in the beginning. The State Fair grew from year to year, adding more attractions such as concerts, balloon ascents, displays of farm machinery, and appearances by public figures. At the turn of the century, with the invention of the automobile and plane, automobile racing was held to replace the loss of horse racing, and flight displays were held to thrill the crowds.
The State Fair gained in popularity each year, becoming a key fall attraction for visitors. In 1968, more than 3 million people visited the State Fair for the first time. Since the 60s, each year’s Fair has been staged to a theme. At the dawn of the new millennium, major corporate sponsorship has played a key role in the State Fair.
Texas is a very big state, and traveling across Texas to attractions like the State Fair of Texas is made easier by renting a charter bus from Bus Rentals Dallas. As you and your group arrive at the State Fair of Texas, there are several main attractions you will not want to miss. The Fair promises fun and entertainment for the whole family.

As you wander around the Fair, get the charter bus to drop you off so that you can catch a free concert at the Bud Light Sound Stage, admire a revolving display of classic automobiles and motorcycles at the Classic Corral, and visit the Greenhouse on the Midway. Kids will be thrilled to catch the BMX Bike Show, while parents can watch celebrity chefs do their thing in the Celebrity Kitchen.

Underground Dallas

One of the best ways to explore Dallas’ vibrant neighborhoods, in addition to taking the bus in Dallas, is by taking a Trolley Tour. The M Line is free, is air-conditioned and heated and runs 365 days a year. All rides, except charters, are free but all contributions are welcomed.
If you’re more Bohemian at heart, explore the Design District in a rented charter bus and check out the many antique junkyards in town. For more information, LowerOakLawn.com has the lowdown on things Dallas Design District including gallery openings, showcases, and events. The best thing is that you can do it comfortably in a bus rental vehicle and enjoy luxurious settings in a party bus, shuttle bus or even a rented mini bus.
Deep Ellum is a graffiti artist’s paradise where you can go check out murals, statues and music show advertisements. Or if you prefer hanging out with friends of the furry kind, Deep Ellum’s Bark Park or Unleashed, the indoor dog park are great places to meet up with other dog lovers.
If the underground scene is not your kind of thing, then see the city from a different perspective from Reunion Tower, or the "Big Ball" and get a Bird's Eye View of the City. The view from here is synonymous with the Dallas skyline and can be found printed tee shirts, coffee cups, and shot glasses.
Ask the party bus or shuttle bus driver to bring you over to relive your childhood at Barcadia on Henderson with videos games and as ski ball, all for 50 cents a game or, get larger than life Jenga style games made out of two-by-fours!

So, sit back, relax and leave your transport worries to Bus Rental Dallas and your trip to Dallas will be a fun-filled memorable one.

The memorial has eight columns that extend to the ground and features light fixtures.
