Pay an Educational visit to the Griffith Observatory

The mystery of space has always been intriguing, however, with the advancement of science and technology, mankind can now observe and behold the wondrous beauty beyond Earth. At the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles, coach bus visitors are able to learn more about space and stars, and enjoy the exhibits and planetarium at the building.

Learning about Space

There are many interesting exhibits found at the Griffith Observatory that teaches mini bus visitors about observatories and outer space. For one, the Wilder Hall of the Eye is an exhibit that illustrates how humans progressed in its journey to learn about the sky, as well as the tools used for that exploration. It is somewhat like a history lesson on how people observed the sky and how it impacted people and the society.

Los Angeles’ Best Beaches

It is an undeniable fact that when tourist come to Los Angeles, the first thing that pops into their minds would be the amazing number of beaches. Long lazy days of lounging on sunny beaches will most certainly enter your minds, is my guess. So, being one of those beach lovers, I have come to the conclusion, as hard as it can be, to point you in the right direction as far as beaches in Los Angeles is concerned. However, this is merely based on what our Bus Company Los Angeles’ reviews and feedback. But aren’t they the best people to get feedback from?
Leo Carrillo beach is one of those beaches that stretches on forever, snakes around rocks and mountains and leaves a deep impression on you long after your charter bus company Los Angeles charter bus holiday is over. What differentiates Leo Carrillo is they are more family-friendly and during summer, you will find lots of kids, teenagers and families gathering around tide pools, climbing cliffs, exploring caves and hitting nature trails. The safety level is also the defining point for Leo Carrillo being chosen as a top family-orientated beach.
Remember the one time that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie pictures on beaches were sprawled on front pages of gossip magazines? Well, if you do, then perhaps the name Paradise Cove might come to mind. This beach is famous for being the perfect spot for easy strolling with your loved ones. Paradise Cove is one of our Bus Company Los Angeles’ customers favorite place to go to when they are stressed out or in need of some serious R&R, away from the hustle and bustle of noisy city life and you can easily do this with the service of bus rental companies like ours.
Of course, when we talk about beaches in Los Angeles, it is NOT possible to leave out the gorgeous, long, sandy beaches of Santa Monica. As you walk up to this bus company Los Angeles tourist attraction, you will be shocked with the sheer number of people and popped-up beach umbrellas there is. We are not kidding you when we say that you are going to struggle to find your own spot at the beach during peak season, summer holidays and even your ordinary weekends. It is apparent - the people of Santa Monica love their beach.
Shaped like a crescent, this unique LA beach is a hot favorite with surfers, mainly because the rolling waves makes it the perfect place to surf. Although there is no lifeguard provided along its shoreline, we think it is perfectly fine to learn surfing while you are there.
So, head on over to your favorite beach this weekend and have some serious surfing fun!

Lifelike Stars of Madame Tussauds Hollywood

Ever dreamed of being up close and personal with the stars? No, not the stars way up there in the sky, the kind of stars that we are talking about is the celebrities of Hollywood. Yes, those kind of stars – that’s what we are talking about. However, truth to be told, in reality, it is a little, if not very difficult to get up close and personal with the stars of Hollywood. Even to take a picture with them would be quite impossible. But if you have always dreamed of wanting to take pictures with your favorite stars, it can be a dream come true – what you need to do is to travel to the Madame Tussauds Hollywood in a rented Los Angeles bus. Yes, it can be that easy.

For the uninitiated, Madame Tussauds is a wax museum that was founded by Marie Tussaud, a famous wax sculptor and the wax museum is a popular tourist spot in many major cities in the world. In the wax museum, you will be able to see waxworks of historical and royal personalities, famous film stars and sports stars as well as infamous murderers too. Be sure to give yourself at least few hours when you come to visit the Madame Tussauds at 6933 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles in the rented LA bus. Bring along your camera and your friends and pose with the famous figures of the world.

Arriving at the entrance of Madame Tussauds (which is also located next to the World Famous Chinese Theatre) after you and your friends come down from the Los Angeles rental bus, the wax museum would seem like just another shop along the street, but wait till you get in there. Previously, in the Madame Tussauds, they used to keep the wax displays “protected” with museum style ropes and poles around the exhibit – but not anymore! Visitors can now get really up close with the Hollywood’s superstars and pose for photos with no bodyguards trying to keep you away.

The wax figures of the famous Hollywood’s A-listers are so real, that it would almost seem too surreal for many of the Los Angeles rented bus visitors to even get up close and touch them. Imagine, you get to ride a bike with E.T., dance with Patrick Swayze, sing with Carrie Underwood, and use the props provided by the museum for “action” photos to be taken with your favorite stars. And if you feel like a cup of coffee and some light snacks after you and your friends have had your share of fun at Madame Tussauds, there’s always Starbucks or The Coffee Bean nearby.

A Night Of Enchantment With David Minkin

If you are tired of the usual dinner dates with your spouse, it is time that you take it up a notch - make the dinner date extra magical - literally. After you have pre-arranged for a rented bus to take both of you out for a special evening, make it even more magical (pun intended!) by bringing her to “David Minkin’s Evening of Enchantment” at 1737 Vine Street, Los Angeles, CA 90028 for an unforgettable evening.
David Minkin’s Evening of Enchantment is not just any other ordinary magic performance. It is a time for you to enjoy mystical magic while you and your spouse wine and dine at the Avalon Theater where he performs. As you make your way there, your friendly Los Angeles rental bus driver may have already even shared with you some of the remarkable reviews of this magician.
Having won a couple of awards and praises of many, as well as appearing on TV programs, David Minkin’s magical “tricks” are not just something that you would see amateur magicians on the streets perform. He literally keeps your eyes on him as he maneuvers his hands and move on the stage.

Upon entering the Avalon Theater, you will be led to a staircase which will then take you through a mystical and candle let hideaway before you are seated at your table. The magic show does not start immediately as you will enjoy wine tasting with hors d'oeuvres during the first hour upon arrival. After that, you and your spouse will soon begin to enjoy a spectacular performance by one of the world’s top magicians - David Minkin.
Some may think that a world class magician like David Minkin would be quite aloof and snobbish, but it is not so with David. Other than his charisma on stage, he is also a humble and friendly person off stage. Many who have watched him perform will testify of this fact.
Having said that, if you always thought that magic is something that can be explained away, you will not say this anymore after watching David Minkin. With David, he literally does not need any warming up before he proceeds with his “trickier” performances. You just can’t tell how he does what he does because he is really that good! And here’s a little tip: if he asks for an assistant from the audience, be the first one to volunteer!
After a night of magic and great wine and food, we bet even the ride home in the rented bus would be a magical moment too!
