Holiday Lights – Limo Style

‘Tis the season, as they say.  No matter your holiday traditions, or religious beliefs, just about everyone can appreciate the wonderful holiday lighting displays in Southern California.  And when it comes impressive holiday lights, it’s hard to beat Orange County.

OC Holiday Lights 1

There are neighborhoods that really go all out, and you really owe it to yourself to see in person this season.  A few examples of these stunning displays can be found below:

Balboa Peninsula

Brea

Buena Park

Huntington Beach

Newport Beach

Laguna Niguel

All of them are worth a visit.  Some of them are even on the water, with extraordinarily decorated boats.  You really can’t go wrong choosing any one of these.

OC Holiday Lights 2

Many of the neighborhoods have dedicated parking areas near the displays, but they fill up quickly, especially on the weekends.  Most of them can be driven through, although be prepared for traffic jams at some locations, which can take a little of the fun out of it.  And that’s where we come in, with something you probably hadn’t thought of before.

OC Holiday Lights 3

We have Holiday light tours available in all parts of the OC.  Get the whole family together, in the back of a luxury stretch limousine, and set out to see several neighborhoods, just a couple, whatever you desire.  No concerns about getting there, parking or traffic.  And best of all, while you’re in the limo listening to your favorite holiday tunes on the stereo, enjoy a “cup of cheer” on the way.  You won’t be driving, so no need to be concerned about the dangers of drinking and driving.

If this sounds like a festive way to spend en evening with family and friends, check out our website for more information on our OC limo fleet, give us a call, or submit your free limo price quote request.  Our limo reservation elves will happily set you up with the perfect holiday lights limousine for the season.

Happy Holidays, and thanks for reading!

Dinner and a Movie – Enhanced!

So the weekend has rolled around, and it’s time to catch a movie with your sweetie.  There are just a few issues to sort out first… for the movie, she want a romantic comedy, you want an action thriller.  For dinner, she wants Italian, you want a steak.  We can’t really help you with those things, but what we can do is help you get there once you’ve decided.

OC restaurant 1

Allow us to explain…  Let’s say you drive yourselves.  If the restaurant is near the movie theater, perhaps you can park in one place for the entire night.  If that’s not the case, you’ll have to allow extra time to find a parking space for both places.  Another more pressing concern is, you’re probably going to have a few drinks at the restaurant, and quite possibly at the theater too, so one of you will need to be the designated driver.

Now of course there’s always the option of a taxi, or one of those unregulated “phone app car services”.  Sure. they’re cheaper, but you never know when they’ll show up, or the skill of the driver, so you may miss your dinner reservation, or the movie if it’s a busy night for them.  But with a top of the line luxury limousine, driven by a professional chauffeur, these aren’t concerns.

Your night will start with a pickup at your home, then a relaxing ride to the restaurant you and the Mrs. have managed to agree upon.  No concerns about traffic, navigation or parking.  And when dinner is over, that same limo and driver will whisk you off to the theater.  Leave your restaurant “doggie bags” in the car, maybe that extra coat you brought, and enjoy your movie.  And when the end credits rolls, that same limo will be waiting for you outside.  No searching for your car in the parking lot (or waiting for that “amateur car service” to show up.  Just a simple, easy elegant night out.

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.

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.

Free_OC_concerts_01

It’s that time of year.  Time to enjoy warm Summer days, the outdoors, and of course, free concerts!  From Laguna Niguel to Huntington Beach, Buena Park to San Juan Capistrano, there’s no shortage of free concerts to enjoy this season.   And with that large number, comes just as much variety in what you’ll see and hear.  Make sure you bring your beach chairs, a picnic basket full of goodies, and the whole family, because you’ve got a lot to do!

Things to do with kids in Orange County

Obviously you won’t be able to attend all of them, and some will be closer and more convenient than others, but why not treat your self and your family to at least a few?  Most locations have playground facilities for the kids, and other side activities and entertainment to keep everyone happy.

And if you decide you don’t want to deal with the driving and parking side of things (or maybe you and your spouse want to enjoy some adult beverages during the show – and most of the venues permit that) – we can help in that regard.  Let us deal with the navigation, the parking and logistics, while you sit back and enjoy the show.  And you can bring your neighbors and friends along for the ride too if you want to go for a big limo like our celebrity limo bus.  But smaller vehicles are available to if that’s not your plan – you can see them all on our limousine fleet page if you’re considering it.

Either way, get out there and enjoy the shows, because as we all know, Summer will be over before you know it!
