Renting A Charter Bus in Philadelphia
Getting around a city like Philadelphia isn’t exactly simple—especially if you don’t live in the area. When planning a trip to Philadelphia for students, business travelers, or even bachelorette parties, it’s important to have an easy transportation option that’s as reliable as it is enjoyable. That’s why you should book a bus with Shofur—our process is extremely simple, and every rider can enjoy a great experience exploring Philadelphia and beyond.
Small group of wedding attendees? Take this minibus that accommodates 14-25 people. Need something a little bigger for students or a sports team? Try this 56-passenger bus. There’s no better way to get around Philadelphia, no matter your reason for visiting. Call us anytime at 1-800-436-8719 if you’re ready for the simplest booking experience you could ask for.
DIY Philadelphia Tour: American History at Every Turn
It’s no secret that Philadelphia is known as the birthplace of the American Constitution. So why not indulge in some historical sightseeing as you spend time in the city? School and conference organizers consistently trust our buses to take touring to the next level, because trying to book a third-party tour in a new city for a large group can be a disaster. Instead of trying to stick to a timetable, let your students or event attendees see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall on their own time with a trusty charter bus that’s much more comfortable (and cleaner) than public transportation.
Most of the buses we charter come equipped with perks like extra legroom, reclining seats, power outlets, and WiFi, but if you want a customized option, we can help you out. This 55-passenger bus, for example, is great for those taking longer trips to see Philly—it comes with large luggage storage underneath the vehicle in addition to overhead storage space for the safekeeping of riders’ belongings.
Another clever DIY Philadelphia tour idea is to ask your driver to take you on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, where more than 15 stops of museums and points of interest await for photo opps. Having a bus at your group’s disposal is not only a safe and simple way to explore the city (no need to worry about leaving belongings behind), but it’s also an extra layer of fun. Who wouldn’t want their own personal Shofur driving them around to see the sights?
Food, Fun, and Recreation in Philadelphia
Anyone who visits Philadelphia for the first time would be absolutely remiss not to sink their teeth into a famous Philly cheesesteak while in town. Wiggle a stop to one of the many delicious cheesesteak shops into your bus itinerary, and you won’t be disappointed. Another idea, if you’re accommodating out-of-town wedding guests, would be sending them to Frankford Hall. It’s a Philly-style beer garden that’s great for families and friends alike, with games to keep the kids happy.
If you’re booking a bus for convention-goers needing downtime entertainment, you may suggest they see a Philadelphia Eagles game—the NFL team did just win the 2018 Super Bowl, after all. There’s also the Reading Terminal Market, which has plenty of food options to delight any type of diner, all in a cool market housed in a National Landmark building. The city is your oyster when you have trusty transportation getting you to and from every point of interest with no hassle or haggling.
Shofur’s reliable network of drivers knows that the destination isn’t the only thing worth getting excited about. When cruising in reclining seats, recharging your stamina and your smartphone (thanks to outlets under the seats), a taste of Philly can be devoured simply by veering through the sweeping passenger windows. Experiencing Philadelphia can be done either on foot or on wheels, and we’re happy to wheel you everywhere you want to see.
Day Trips Close to Philadelphia
Planning a travel itinerary for people who might get antsy? Once they’ve explored all there is to see in Philadelphia, send them on a little road trip to some neighboring areas well worth a visit. For bridal parties, the gorgeous Longwood Gardens are just 28 miles away in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. The drive alone will be a delight if you choose a bus like this bus—LED lights illuminate the interior, the panoramic front window makes the drive a scenic masterpiece, and premium rear audio ensures every karaoke queen has her chance to shine.
Another option for a fun bunch is to head an hour away to Phoenixville, which is a suburban-town-turned-cultural-hub. Thanks to its revitalization over the past 15 years, this area welcomes visitors with a slew of breweries, artists, and musicians. Brewery hopping is no problem with a designated bus driver at the helm.
And for the truly adventurous, riders can trek to the Jersey Shore for some beach action. Just 77 miles from Philly, Sea Isle Drive, New Jersey, is a great place to spend a free day by the water. Before you’re ready for the ride back to Philly, though, make sure you take the time to catch the views at Sunset Pier.
