Dear Winter, We’re Over You!

winter

Is it just us here at GotoBus, or does it seem like nothing is going on, anywhere? We’ve reached the end of February, and winter doesn’t look like it’s ready to be over any time soon. Though it’s been nice to spend some time wrapped up like a burrito in our warmest blankets, drinking hot cocoa, and watching Netflix, we’d love to get out and have a good time. So we spent some time searching the internet, trying to find exciting upcoming events in some of the best cities in the country to help you get some ideas for trips and activities so you can enjoy yourself despite the cold weather. All you need to do is head over to GotoBus.com to book bus tickets and hotel packages in any of the cities around the country where we have routes. Don’t forget, booking round-trip bus tickets with the same bus vendor will usually give you additional discounts too!

San Francisco, California

Avengers Assemble! The Marvel Experience live show is currently touring the country, and from February 27th to March 22nd, it will set up shop in lovely San Francisco. Held in a large inflatable dome in the parking lot of AT&T Park – a baseball stadium that sits right on the bay where the Giants play their home games – this event mixes the best elements of a theme park (exciting rides, actors dressed as superheroes) and a comic book convention (interactive exhibits). For a few hours, you’ll get to fight alongside the Avengers, joining Earth’s mightiest heroes like Spiderman and the Incredible Hulk in a struggle with the most notorious super-villains from the Marvel Universe. For more information on this event that is guaranteed to entertain guests young and old, visit the Marvel Experience’s official website. Los Angeles to San Francisco bus tickets start at $35 one-way.

Chicago, Illinois

If you live in the Midwest, you probably don’t want to spend too much time outside right now. That’s why winter is a perfect time to appreciate fine art. Chicago is blessed to have one of the most prestigious museums in the world, the Art Institute. Fans of classic 80’s teen comedies will remember this museum from a scene in the classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off when the title character and his friends visit while they skip school. In addition to collections that represent various cultures from around the world – including large wings dedicated to Asian, European, and African-American art – it houses works by many painters who are considered masters of their craft, like Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Claude Monet, whose iconic Water Lilies is one of the true gems in this facility. Some of the temporary exhibits currently running at the Art Institute include Byzantine-Greek mosaics, paintings from the era of Spanish colonialism in the Andes Mountains region, Islamic art, and much more. Browse the Art Institute’s website for a full list of the permanent collections, temporary exhibits, and all the other information you could need. Be sure to reserve yours soon since, since New York to Chicago bus tickets are as little as $40 one-way!

The Art Institute of Chicago

New York, New York

Chinese New Year is a celebration to mark the end of the Chinese lunar calendar. This year is dedicated to the goat (or ram/sheep). Each animal in the Chinese zodiac is assigned lucky directions, and East is one of those for the goat. New York City, the cultural capital of the East Coast is home to one of the largest, busiest Chinatown districts in the country, and puts on a celebration to match. Though the official date of the New Year was February 19th, the festivities last for over 2 weeks, so you can see marvelous displays of traditional paper lanterns strung above the streets. In this popular Manhattan neighborhood, you will also be able to find some of the best Chinese restaurants in the country, which will drive any foodie crazy with delight. Washington DC to New York City bus tickets start at $21 a ticket.
