GREYHOUND
A transcontinental bus ride on film and regional American meals are the main attraction of this pavilion. It is also home base for the Fair's transportation fleet of over 300 Greyhound vehicles.
* Admission: free.
 Highlights
COAST-TO-COAST ON A BUS. Audiences in the Circle Theater stand on a slowly revolving turntable to view the history of the wheel in slide projections; a short but vivid film picturing America as it might appear through the window of a cross-country bus; and a map which glows in the dark, tracing Greyhound routes through the U.S. and Canada.
REGIONAL COOKING. Main Street, U.S.A., has three dining rooms: The Nantucket Room, the Federal Room and the Western Room. All three serve regional dishes: seafood, Southern cooking and beef. The pavilion also has a cafeteria.
SIDESHOWS. In a small theater Lady Greyhound, the company's live canine symbol, models dog clothes, and there are color films of various regions of the United States.

GREYHOUND

Among the highlights are travel exhibits, regional cooking and a canine fashion show.

This pavilion is home base for the fleet of "Glide-a-Ride" trains and buses used for public transportation at the Fair. There are also displays of attractions around the United States featured in Greyhound highway tours.

  • REGIONAL COOKING. Main Street, U.S.A., has three dining rooms -- the Nantucket, Federal and Western Rooms -- where seafood, Southern dishes and beef are served. In a special cafeteria, diners quick-cook their own selections by push-button microwave.
  • FASHION SHOW. Four times a day Lady Greyhound, the company's live canine symbol, models the latest in dog fashions.

Their Glide-a-Rides, Buses and Escorters could be found everywhere at the Fair, yet their pavilion remains one of the Fair's more obscure attractions. Visit the Greyhound Pavilion and meet true royalty ... Lady Greyhound!
