The Happiest Birthday

Let’s say it’s your best girlfriend’s birthday.  There’s talk among your friends about taking her to dinner, maybe a bar or a club.  You haven’t decided yet, and it’s not exactly a surprise since a couple of your friends have already talked to her about it.  But you do have a chance for at least a partial surprise factor here.  Pick her up in a stretch birthday limo loaded with you and all her friends, then hit the town.


When you think about it, what better way is there to celebrate and party around town than in a limousine?  You can all fit inside at once.  There’s a bar and entertainment system.  No one has to be the designated driver.  You don’t have to worry about traffic, parking or navigating, because you have a professional chauffeur at the wheel, which also means you know you’re going to get where you’re going.

Just imagine the look on the birthday girl’s face when that limo rolls up in front of her house and all of her friends are waiting inside, ready to celebrate the night away.  So, that settled, where do you want to go?  If you’re in Orange County, you may want to consider Newport Beach.  You can start with this great guide on the best bars and nightclubs in the area.  A couple that come to mind you may want to add to your list of stops are EnVy Lounge or Beach Ball.

If you’re up for dancing, check out this list of the 10 best dance clubs in Newport Beach.  Party down, have a blast, celebrate her birthday, and when it’s all said and done, hop back into your luxury limo, and call it a night.  The birthday girl will have the time of her life, and you and the rest of the group will know you did the right thing, and gave her the best birthday possible.

So if this sounds like the way to go, take a look at our Orange County limousine fleet, submit a free limo price quote, or if you have more questions, or just aren’t sure which limousine is right for you, give us a call.  We’re available 24/7 365 to answer your questions, and help you choose the perfect birthday limo.

Disneyland Limo?

So you’re planning a trip to Disneyland, but you’re dreading the traffic, the parking, and the ordeal of trying to find your car after a long day of Disney-branded fun?  We’d like to offer a suggestion… why not rent a limousine to handle all of those things, so you and your family can just enjoy your day at the greatest place on earth?  Sure, a limo isn’t going to help you with the long lines at The Haunted mansion, or The Pirates of the Caribbean, but you can always get “Fast Passes” for those!


Now we know you have other transportation options if you don’t want to drive yourself, like taxi cabs, or even one of those amateur car services.  But for a large group, those just aren’t going to cut it.  A Disneyland limo is the way to go.  That said… how do you choose the right limousine for your Disney Day?

The first consideration is to figure out how many passengers will be riding along.  A family of 5 could go with an SUV, such as a Chevy Suburban or a Cadillac Escalade.  But if you’re looking for more of a real limo experience, you should consider getting either a Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, or a Chrysler 300 stretch limo.  You’ll turn heads as you pull into the parking lot with either of these beauties.  And they will easily accommodate up to 8 adults.

If you have more than 8 people on your group, an SUV super stretch limousine would be perfect.  Vehicles like the Cadillac Escalade super stretch limo, or the Hummer H2 super stretch limo can hold up to 20 passengers (even more if most of the group is made up of children).

Once you’ve chosen your limo, you can decide if you just want a pick up and drop off rental, or an hourly rental – where you can keep the limo for the whole day, which makes it convenient to leave your personal belongings in the car, such as souvenirs you picked up during the day, drinks and snacks, and maybe jackets for the evening when things cool down.  Either option is available.

If this sounds like a great way to make your Disney Day even better, then take a look at our OC limousine fleet page, fill out your free limo price quote request, or give us a call.  We’re happy to help you choose the perfect limousine for your day at the park.

15 reasons to rent a limo in LA

Los Angeles is one of the busiest, and most exciting places to visit.  So much to do, so many amazing places to see!  In LA, we “party like rock stars” and want the same treatment as the stars.  So when you want to really see LA, don’t drive yourself.  Riding in a limo is so much better, and here are 15 reasons why…

LA summer

1) You get to ride in a Limo! How fun is that? Something for all ages to enjoy! Right?

2) It gives you a reason to get together with friends or loved ones. Sit back, relax and enjoy each other’s company.

3) Renting a limo gives you an opportunity to celebrate many things: Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations, engagements, proms, homecoming, scavenger hunts, the list is endless.


4) Well if you like to party, and enjoy a few adult beverages, having a reliable designated chauffeur at you service is what you need.

5) Kids LOVE limos, no matter the destination.

6) V.I.P. treatment!  Who doesn’t enjoy that?

7) Someone with knowledge of the city is behind the wheel.

8) Chauffeurs are experienced.  You won’t see them staring at a GPS the entire ride like those “amateur” car service folks.

10) You can take the party with you after the event.  Your options are almost unlimited.


11) You can party on the way to your destination!

12) Business meetings / trips are much more productive in a limo.

13) Sad but true, we mention it since it does help make things easier.. funerals.


14) Airport Transfers – do you really want to navigate LAX on your own?

15) City Tours.  LA never looked so good viewing it from the back of a stretch limo!

So there you go.  Certainly we could come up with even more reasons, but if any of these sound good to you, or you have some other things in mind that didn’t make the list, check out our website, submit a free limo price quote request, or just give us a call.  We’re here 365 24/7 to help you choose the perfect limousine for any occasion.

How large is your limousine?

One of the most frequent questions we receive at 800 Limo Ride is “…how many people will fit in one of your limos?”

Now that’s a question that’s difficult to answer.  Is kind of like calling a pizza place and asking how many slices are in a pizza.  Think about this for a minute.  Without knowing the size of the pizza (or the size of the limo), answering this question isn’t going to help you make the right choice.


If we continue with the pizza analogy, if the restaurant has an 15 inch pizza, cutting that pizza into 10 slices or 30, it’s still the same amount of pizza. And it’s very similar with a limo, in that the capacity will depend on which limo you are asking about, and the length and configuration of that limousine.


So, what should you do?  We suggest that when calling a limo service, you should inform them that you need a limousine for x number of people, and then ask what your options are for limos of that capacity.

With this line of questioning, the limo service representative will know exactly what your needs are, and can then discuss the various types, configurations and passenger capacities they offer.  You’ll have the information you need to make the right choice, and you won’t end up with the wrong limousine – one that’s not big enough, or one that’s way more than you need.



At the end of the day, you’ll have the limo you want, and not the one you don’t.  Whether it’s for a night on the town, a Temecula wine tour, or a wedding, getting a limousine that has the capacity for your group is key.  And asking the right questions is the first step in getting that limousine.

To get some ideas, please take a look at our Orange County limousine fleet, then give us a call, or submit a free online limo price quote request.  We’re always here to help, 24/7 365.

A Better Wedding Anniversary

That time of year is rapidly approaching… you know, the time of year you forgot last time.  Yep, that didn’t go over well.  You were in the doghouse for the whole weekend.  That little day that you must never forget, or your wife won’t ever forget.  That’s right, we’re talking about your wedding anniversary.


You told yourself you weren’t going to let this happen again.  Well, the day is almost here again, and you realize you haven’t planned anything yet.  And it has to be something bigger than usual, because you need to make up for last year.

Flowers? That’s a given.

Dinner? Absolutely!

But what else.  How can you make the whole occasion more memorable?  Consider how you’re going to get where you’re going…


Your first thought is to drive yourself.  Of course then maybe only one of you can enjoy the wine and Champagne.  That’s no good.

What about a taxi?  You won’t score any points with your wife here.


How about the ever popular “amateur” car services?  Hmm, that’s a gamble.  You never know who will show up or what they’ll be driving.  That’s fine for a night out with the guys, but not enough for tonight.

No, you need to do it up right. You need a true professional chauffeur.  And that chauffeur needs to be driving a luxury limousine.

Something like a Lincoln Town Car stretch limo would fit the bill.

Or  maybe a Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo to really impress.

Optionally, you can arrange for your driver to have the flower arrangement, and your wife’s favorite bottle of wine or Champagne waiting for you in the limousine.  You’ll then be whisked off to her favorite restaurant in luxury and style.  After that, maybe a drive down to the beach for a romantic after dinner stroll.  It’s your night, make it memorable.

Your driver will be at the ready, to take you wherever you want to go.  And at the end of the night, he’ll take you back home, safely and comfortably.

And let’s not forget the added bonus of things you DON’T get when you choose a limo for your anniversary celebration… You won’t get to fight with traffic, you won’t get to search for a parking space, and perhaps most importantly, you won’t risk getting a DUI because you and your wife had one too many glasses of champagne.

If this sounds like a good way to surprise your wife this anniversary, take a look at our website and our OC limousine fleet, or feel free to call us any time.  We’re available 24/7 365 to help you book your perfect anniversary limousine.
