Happy Birthday, Mom!

OK, let’s say your mom’s birthday is coming up. Maybe it’s a “milestone” birthday like 50, or 75. Sure, you want to throw her a party, or take her to dinner, but it feels like something a little extra is needed. And naturally, that’s where we come in.


Sure, make reservations at one of her favorite restaurants, get her friends together, and arrange the “setup”. Invite mom over, telling her you’re going to take her and dad out for a birthday dinner – but leave the part about her friends and the limousine out. On the big night, have mom and dad drive over to the house, and come inside. The limo can be hiding a couple blocks away. The driver can pull up out front when mom isn’t paying attention. Then you can ask mom to come outside with you because you want to ask her opinion about something in the garden, or whatever. When she walks out, the chauffeur is there waiting, door opened (with optional red carpet and flowers – up to you), ready to whisk mom, dad and the rest of the family off to the restaurant.

Of course, when you arrive at the restaurant, all of your mom’s friends can be there waiting to surprise her! Then it’s dinner, drinks, cake and celebration time. And when the night is over, you’ve got the limo waiting outside, ready to take you, mom and the family back home. It will be a night she’ll never forget. And that’s the kind of night every mom deserves, at least once in their life.


So, if this sounds like a good plan to you, check us out online to get an idea of the types of limousines we have in our fleet. There are enough varieties to suit just about any tastes and capacities.  Then give us a call or submit your free online limo price quote request.  We’re available 24/7 365, ready and willing to help you plan mom’s special day!

Knott’s Berry Farm Done Right

A Southern California staple for nearly a century, Knott’s Berry Farm began in 1920’s, literally as just that… a berry farm.  Later a chicken restaurant was added, which brought in the crowds, leading Mr. Knott to begin construction of the ghost town, continuing adding more and more attractions up to the present day.

Knott's Berry Farm 1

Today it’s a major amusement park, and a great place to take the family for a day of fun – with less of the crowds you’ll find at competing Disneyland and Magic Mountain.

So, how do you get there?  Fill the minivan with the family, and a few of your children’s friends?  Now that doesn’t sound like fun.  Why not rent a limo?  What better way to get there (and give the kids something to remember and talk about)?  Plus, no need to worry about traffic, parking, getting there, and finding the car when you’re bone tired at the end of the day.


There are many options when it comes to limos.  If you have a group smaller than 8, you may want to consider a classic Lincoln Town Car stretch limousine or Chrysler 300 stretch limo.  They can hold 8-10 passengers, and have all the amenities to keep the kids (and the adults) happy on the road.

If you have a larger group of 10 or more, you may want to consider a Cadillac Escalade super stretch limousine, or a Mercedes Luxury Coach.  There will be plenty of leg and head room in these vehicles, and all the amenities you’ll find in the smaller limousines.

Knott's Berry Farm 2

If your group is even larger than that (God help you when you get to the park!), you may want to try a super stretch Hummer H2, or a full sized party bus.  Either of these vehicles will turn heads and get attention.  And trust us… your kids won’t soon forget the trip!

Whichever vehicle you choose, you can choose to keep the same vehicle for the entire day, having the option to leave personal belongings in the car (jackets, water, snacks, cameras), or save money, and simply have one limo take you there and drop you off, and another pick you up and take you back at the end of the day.

If you aren’t sure what the best option for your group would be, feel free to give us a call 24/7, and one of our reservationists will help you pick the right plan and type of limo rental for your budget and needs.  Or submit your free limo price quote request online to get started.  And then get ready to enjoy Knott’s Berry Farm!
