December 26, 2008

News, 2008

GotoBus.com, the leading online marketplace for bus tickets and tours, is pleased to announce the release of their Presidential Inauguration bus tours departing from New York City and Boston. These tours range in duration from one to eight days and allow travelers to be part of the action during the historic inauguration of the first African-American president, Barack Obama.

One day tours include a viewing of the inaugural parade, swearing in ceremony, and admission to the Presidential Wax Museum in Washington DC. At the Presidential Wax Museum travelers have the opportunity to have their picture taken with wax figures of famous presidents throughout history including Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Abe Lincoln and George Washington. In the afternoon there will be free time to visit the Smithsonian Museums or join one of the many inaugural balls happening in the area. These tours will depart from Washington DC and return to their origin in late evening. If guests prefer to book a two day tour they can enjoy an additional stop in Philadelphia to see the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall.

Travelers who wish to include an inaugural experience in their vacation have the option of booking a seven day tour. The Special East Coast 7-Days Post Inaugural Parade Tour begins with sightseeing stops around New York City including Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and NBC Studios. This tour will also visit Philadelphia, Washington DC, Hershey’s Chocolate World, Corning Glass Studio, Niagara Falls and Boston. The Special East Coast 7-Days Post Inaugural Parade Tour returns to Washington DC on inauguration day to be part of the historic ceremonies and concludes with transportation back to New York City.

To accommodate travelers from northern locales, GotoBus is also offering inauguration tours departing from Boston. These tours offer roundtrip ground transportation, hotel accommodations and extended vacation options. Complete itineraries and ticketing information for all inauguration bus tours can be found at GotoBus.
