With so many Broadway theaters to choose from, it’s hard to know where to begin. Start by chartering a bus to New York’s Theater District. Plan a theater tour, take your group to a show, or dine at a historic restaurant. Your NYC bus rental can drop you off for a full day of fun.
Broadway is a street that crosses Manhattan, but when people say Broadway they usually mean the strip that runs through the Theater District. There are over 40 theaters in the area, but few are as historic as the original Broadway Theatre. Although it first opened in 1926 as a film house, Broadway Theatre has been operating as a stage for live shows since the 1940s. Its size (1765 seats) makes it perfect for hit musicals. The performers of Evita, Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof, and the Color Purple have all called the Broadway Theatre home.
Broadway is highly regarded as one of the most world’s important destinations for theater-lovers. Today, you’ll find celebrities like Meryl Streep and Kerry Washington gracings its stages. Choose a show, check out a group tickets website for deals (we recommend Broadway Inbound), then charter a NYC bus rental for your next Broadway trip.
Why charter a bus to visit Broadway
Because the Theater District is located in the very center of the city, parking is virtually non-existent. You’ll want to rent a NYC charter bus to drop your group off at the theater of your choice. If you are traveling from over two hours away, charter a coach bus for extra comfort. Coming from the suburbs? A school bus is a great venue for a group sing-a-long. What better way to get pumped for an evening of musical theater!
Stages have been popping up in the Theater District since the 1800s. Many of its theaters weathered the Great Depression and came out stronger than ever. Also referred to as “the Great White Way” because of the bright white lights that mark the theaters, this strip of Broadway has provided visitors with a night on the town for centuries
The Theater District is a smaller neighborhood inside Midtown Manhattan. This area is known as a dining destination. Some of its restaurants have been around as long as the theaters. Before your NYC charter bus rental takes you home, stop at the Carnegie Deli (founded in 1937) for some classic smoked meat or the ‘21’ Club (founded in 1929) for its distinct prohibition era vibe.
New York’s glamorous skyscrapers and streets that never sleep attract travelers from across the world – and with good reason! The city is also a go-to destination to discover the best in gastronomy, entertainment, performing arts, and sporting events. Rarely skipping a beat, New York will surely keep you busy during your stay.
