Yes, you can use a bus charter for tour transportation. It is an even more pleasant experience when you do it, friends. Imagine the scenario – you get together, get a charter bus in Chicago and then go all around the state of Illinois. This can be a cool idea for the free time of business delegation as well. In this article, we are going to share with you the best places to visit with bus charter in the whole state and will give you some tips on organizing the trip. 

Research the good companies for a charter bus in Chicago

Step one is doing your research. Know how many people you are going to be, what is your budget. How much time do you have available for this trip and make a list with the charter bus companies that look reliable. After that make a list of the sites you want to visit. Ask if the driver is familiar enough with the sites to give you some information, or if you should hire a guide. There are a lot of small details in planning that matter. 

Start with Chicago

There is a good chance that you will be renting a bus charter from Chicago. It makes sense to start with the city and then continue to other parts of the state. If there is an option, make it a two-day trip. One day for Chicago alone, and then one day for all the other places around Illinois. We have already mentioned what are the top attractions you should check out in the “Windy City”. 

Next bus charter stop: Rockford and the Anderson gardens

There is a huge misunderstanding that only Chicago is worth seeing. If you could spare the time, the Anderson Japanese Gardens in Rockford are a sight you don’t want to miss. However, it is only an option in the warm period of the year (between May and October). Many people claim that there is no better Japanese garden in the whole country. Maybe even the best in North America. 

The gardens of God in Shawnee National Forest

It sounds impressive. And it is. This is another outdoor experience and you have to coordinate with the charter bus companies to make the tour on a day with good weather. In the Shawnee National Forest (loved by many residents of Chicago) is located a unique rock formation called the “Gardens of God”. It offers a breathtaking view and a short forest trail that you can explore. When you visit with bus charter, make sure to check where is the closest parking available. 

The historical city of Galena

When you hire a charter bus in Chicago, the driver or the guide will most likely recommend that you stop by in Galena for some time. This lovely town has preserved its unique architecture from the 19th century when it was a major port in the area. Stop and go for a walk. It will feel like you are in another period in time.
