Wine Tasting in DC

Whether you’re just visiting Washington DC for a weekend, or you are a resident, you really owe it to yourself to see as much as you can while you’re there.  Obviously there’s no shortage of national monuments and buildings to see, but perhaps after a day or two of that, you’ll be interested in something a little different.

DC_wineries_01

We’re talking about wine tasting tours here.  Maybe that’s not something that immediately comes to mind when you’re in DC, but it really should be, as there are some outstanding wineries in the area, such as Boxwood Winery, Barrel Oak Winery, and RdV Vineyards, to name just a few.  You’ll find these and more on the Washingtonian website, and US News.

So, once you’ve decide on which ones you want to visit, you might want to consider alternatives to driving yourself, since that’s not exactly the most convenient thing to do in a town like DC, where parking is expensive, traffic is heavy, and navigation to the various wineries can be daunting.

Since this is probably not something you’re going to get the chance to do very often, why not make your wine tasting that much better, relaxing and safer by booking a luxury sedan, SUV or coach for your day out?  No set destinations – it’s up to you.  Visit the locations you want to, or let our experienced chauffeurs help in that regard.  Then essentially sit back and enjoy the ride.  It’s your car, your day, your decision.

Large group or small, we have a wide variety of luxury vehicles in our fleet. Sip a glass of wine while cruising through beautiful wine country.  No parking hassles, no navigation planning.  Just you, some soft music, the scenery, and the wine.

If this sounds like something you’d like to try, give us a call, check out our website, or submit a free limo price quote request.  The start your DC wine tour adventure to remember.

10 Reasons for a Limousine

Washington DC and the surrounding areas are one of the most history-rich parts of the United States to visit.  With so much to do, and so many beautiful places to see, you need to book at least a week or more to be able to take it all in.  And plan to do a lot of driving if you want to explore on your own.  But if you’d rather ride than drive, and aren’t keen on public transportation or phone app car services, but aren’t sure you really need a limo, we’ve got a list of 10 reasons why you might want to consider one, instead of those other options.

DC_train

1. You get to ride in a Limousine! And that’s something that all ages enjoy!

2. Riding in a limousine gives you the freedom to sit back, relax and enjoy the company of your friends or family, in a private, quiet and luxurious environment.

3. If you enjoy having an adult beverage or two with your friends, having a reliable designated driver chauffeur at you service is definitely the way to go.  Plus, it’s legal to drink in a limousine.  Not so with public transportation or amateur car services.

4. If you have kids, enough said.  They love limos!

5. You get the V.I.P. treatment usually reserved for DC bigwigs!

6. A professional with knowledge of the city is behind the wheel.

7. You can continue the party after the event, or on the way to the next stop!

8. Corporate meetings are much more productive, with room to work on the way.

9. There is no better way to get in/out of the DC area airports than a limousine.

corporate-limos

10. As we mentioned at the beginning, if you want to take in all the sites that DC has to offer, doing so in a luxury limousine, with an experienced guide navigating through the city, you can’t go wrong with a limo.  No set “tour routes”.  You go where you want to go, stay as long as you want to stay, or if you’d rather not plan things out yourself, sit back and let your personal tour guide take you to the best spots.

Some Guys Have All The Luck…

Now we all know about girls night out.  In fact, we even wrote a blog post about that very thing not too long ago.  Which got us thinking… what about the guys?  Don’t they need their own night out?  We think so!

bored guy

Now that we’ve settled that, let’s get to planning.  Hit the bars?  Dinner?  Bowling?  Clubbing?  Cruising downtown?  All of the above?  Sure, why not.  Next decision… how are you guys gonna get there?  Taxi?  Phone app car service?  Carpool in your buddy’s mini van?  Seriously?!  No sir, not tonight.  First of all, there’s 6 of you (possibly 8), and you all want to hang out together, not take several cars.  And of course, no one is volunteering to be the all important designated driver.  The decision looks pretty clear at this point.  You guys need a limousine.

guys_limo

OK, you know the game plan, you made your transportation choice, now it just comes down to which limo is right for you.  You could go with an SUV, or maybe a traditional stretch limo, but if you really want to stand out (and stand up inside), you need a Mercedes-Sprinter luxury coach.  This bad boy will get you there in style, with LED lighting, high end multimedia system, and class throughout.

Mercedes_Sprinter_Coach

So with the destinations set, the vehicle chosen, it’s time to sit back, relax, and let your professional chauffeur handle all the driving, navigating and parking chores.  He’ll be with you the whole night.  One driver, one car, ready and waiting to take you to your next destination – whether that’s a bar, or back home at the end of the night.  And not to worry… what happens in the limo, stays in the limo.

Take a look at our DC limousine fleet page, submit a free online limo price quote request, or give us a call.  We’re always open, and always ready to help you choose the perfect limo for your needs.

Have fun, and thanks for reading!

Executives Deserve Better

Ask anyone you know what occasions they think of when they hear the word limousine, or limo, and they will probably respond; wedding, prom, bachelor party, or a night on the town.  Yes, those are all common uses for a limousine, but one use is frequently overlooked, that of corporate and executive travel.

corporate-limos

Airport transfers, transportation to and from meetings, or maybe taking the office staff out for dinner after a particularly good week.  All the typical limousines that are available for the wedding/party clients are also available for executives.  And they don’t all have to have flashing neon lights and ear blasting sound systems.  Understated Lincoln Town Cars or Lincoln MKTs are generally preferred over a big flashy super stretch limo when it comes to corporate travel.  And a party bus can be configured for corporate use too, which could come in handy for say a corporate weekend retreat.

Mercedes_Sprinter_Coach

And we mentioned airport transportation.  That’s a very popular use of limousines.  Why take a stinky taxi when you can travel in style and comfort in a luxury sedan or executive SUV?  It sure beats those “amateur car services’ where you never know what or who you’ll get.  With us you’ll get a professional chauffeur who knows where he’s going, knows how to keep a low profile, and knows how to give you the best trip possible.

A Happier Birthday?

Sure there’s cake, cards, gifts and friends, but let’s say your mother’s birthday is approaching, and perhaps it’s a big one like 50, or 60.  Obviously you want to throw her a party, which will likely include dinner, but you’re feeling like something a little more is needed.  And guess what… we have some ideas…

Happy Birthday Mom

Go ahead and make reservations at her favorite restaurant and get all her friends together, and if you’re thinking surprise party, arrange the ‘setup’.  Invite your mom over, tell her you’re going to take her and your dad out for dinner, but of course, keep the part about her friends joining in, and the fact that there’s going to be a limo out.

limo_chauffeur

On the special night, plan for mom and dad to drive over to your place, and invite them in.  The limo can be hiding a couple streets over.  Have the chauffeur pull up when mom isn’t paying attention, and direct mom out front, and watch the big smile on her face when the chauffeur is there waiting with the door open.  For an extra nice touch, a red carpet and flowers can be added – it’s up to you.  Mom will be thrilled either way, as she is whisked off in her limousine to the restaurant with you and the family.

When you arrive at the restaurant, mom’s friends will be there waiting to add to the surprise!  Then it’s time for dinner, drinks, cake and the big celebration.  And when the night is done, your limo will be waiting outside, waiting to take you, mom and the family home.  Trust us when we say this will be a night mom will never forget.  And doesn’t your mom deserve something special like this, at least once in her life?

restaurant_birthday

If this sounds like something you’d like to do for your mother, check out our website to get an idea of the types of vehicles we have in our DC limousine fleet. There are a wide variety to choose from that will fit just about any taste or capacity needs.  We’re here 24/7 365, ready to assist you in planning mom’s amazing birthday spectacular!  Call us any time, or get a free no obligation limo price quote on our website.

Girls’ Night Out!

It’s that time… time when the girls get out and hit the town without the boys.  It’s been a long week, and it’s time for a party.  Get the girls together, and start planning.  Will it be a restaurant, the club scene, a local bar, dancing?  The night is yours, to do as you want.  The sky is the limit, as they say.

girls_night_out_01

So, plans made, girlfriends gathered, there’s just one more thing… who’s driving?

Well, tonight there’s 9 of you, so option 1 – sharing a single car – isn’t going to cut it.  Option 2 is a cab, or in this case, multiple cabs.  That leaves out riding together.  It also leaves out keeping the same cars all night.  Option 3 is the ever popular “amateur car service”, but again… you’re gonna need more than one vehicle, and the odds are pretty good that whomever shows up won’t know the city, and will stare at his or her GPS the entire ride.

Mercedes_Sprinter_Coach

 

No, tonight you need more than that.  You need style.  You need class.  You need a professional chauffeur who knows the city, knows the hot spots, and will be behind the wheel of a big enough luxury vehicle to transport all of you to where the night takes you.

girls_night_out_02

That’s the way to do girls night.  And best of all, you’ve got a rolling party on wheels, so if your chosen destinations don’t turn out quite like you’d hoped, just head back to the limo and cruise DC.  It’s win win.  And enjoy an adult beverage or three.  You and your girlfriends aren’t getting behind the wheel tonight.

When you’re ready to take “ladies night” to the next level, check out our DC limo fleet, and pick the perfect limousine.  Or if you need help, or have more questions, give us a call.  We’re here 24/7 to help you chose the best limo for your needs.

Airport Stress?

You have a business trip coming up.  You’re an executive who does this almost weekly.  You know the routine.  Plan ahead and get there insanely early.  Obviously, there are plenty of transportation choices when it comes to getting to DC area airports.  Option one is to drive yourself.  Option two is a cab.  Option three is to take the bus.  Option four is to use one of the amateur / phone app car services with cute names.  None of these options is ideal, of course…

business_traveler_01

If you’re looking to reduce stress, driving yourself is the worst choice.. unless you enjoy traffic, and over-priced parking (assuming the lots aren’t full when you get there).  And then you’ll have that thought in the back of your mind the whole trip – will my car be there when I get back?

What about a cab?

DC cab

Sure, they’re everywhere, and in most cases will get you there.  But it’s a gamble, since you never know who will show up, what condition the car is in, and whether or not they know where they’re going – will they take the fast way, or the long way so the meter adds up to a higher fare?

So what about the bus?

DC_bus

Providing it’s on time, and you left early enough to still get there if it’s late after all the stops, you’ll make your flight.  Is it a comfortable or relaxing experience? Do you really need to ask?

Amateur phone-app car service?

bad_driver_01

Hmm… who will show up?  Will they know the DC area enough to drive without staring at the GPS the entire time – taking the slowest route due to their inexperience?  Quite possibly, or you might get lucky.  The price is cheap, but this is a big part of why it’s cheap.  You get what you pay for.  It’s not exactly the best way to eliminate stress.

And what about a limousine?

chauffeur_01

Well, it’s definitely going to be a step above the previous options.  Sure, we’re a little biased since we are a limo company, but we’ve been doing this for a very long time, and we know how to get you to the airport in the best way possible.  We will show up on time, and navigate the most efficient routes – and we don’t need to use a GPS to do it.  Your ride will be a pleasant and relaxing experience, and you’ll arrive at the airport ready to deal with the lines and security hassles (yeah, sorry.. we can’t really help you there, but at least you will start that process in a better mood than if you had used any of the other transportation options we talked about).

So if this sounds good to you, check out our DC limousine fleet (we have sedans and shuttles too), or give us a call any time for more information.  We’re available 24/7 365, and our professional chauffeurs are ready to get you where you’re going in style.  And we can be there for you when you return as well.
