Quinceañera Limousine

What a special time for your daughter.  You’ve gotten her the dress of her dreams, rented the hall, made arrangements at the church, hired the band for the party, but wait… what are you forgetting?  Of course!  The limo!

Quinceanera 1

Your Quinceañera limousine needs to be just as special as your Quinceañera. It’s a large part of the celebration.  When it comes to limos, we know how to make her special day even more special.  Ride in style, luxury and comfort to all of the destinations.  She’ll be a princess all day, and you won’t have to concern yourself with driving, directions or traffic.

Any of our late model Lincoln and Chrysler stretch limousines will work well.  Or for a larger group, try one of our super stretch SUV limousines, such as the Cadillac Escalade or the eye catching Hummer H2. And for the largest groups / families, our luxury limo bus will fit the bill perfectly.

All of the limos in our fleet come with complementary sparkling cider, bottled water and ice. And our professional chauffeurs will make sure everything is just right on your daughter’s special day.

Quinceanera 2

Depending on the size of your family, or your plans, a larger sized limousine can transport all of your friends and family to and from the church, the park for pictures, and then to the final reception hall party. We can also arrange for more than one limousine, or even a passenger van or SUV for the parents.  Whatever you need for your Quinceanera, we can help make it a day to remember.

Quinceanera 3

For questions about Quinceañera limousines, give us a call or send us an email. Our reservation professionals are happy to help you with your Quinceañera planning, including vehicles choices, park or church recommendations, etc.

Time For A Wedding? Time For A Wedding Limousine!

Spring

It’s going to be Spring soon… a time of new beginnings, new flowers, warmer days… and weddings.  If you are planing a spring wedding, we hope you’ve already gotten started, because it will be here before you know it!  Sure, right now, with the record cold temperatures across the country, it doesn’t feel like it will, but trust us on this one, we know.

Often times, when it comes to weddings, people make their plans and reservations a year in advance, or more.  Popular venues book up quickly, and the prices will rise the closer it gets to the big day.  So once you’ve figured out the where and when, get busy!

Bride and Lincoln LimousineWhen it comes to wedding transportation, we’re happy to help.  First, you’ll need to know how many people will be in your wedding party, and whether you’ll need more than one limousine – often times the bride and groom have their own limo, while family and friends ride in another one.  In those cases, a classic like the Lincoln Town Car stretch limo is an ideal choice.  Or you may want to consider the Chrysler 300 stretch limo.  An optional family/friends vehicle would be a Chevy Suburban or Cadillac Escalade SUV, or perhaps a Ford passenger van.

Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo

Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limo

In the case of larger groups sharing one vehicle, our recommendations (depending on the number of people), would be a Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV, a Hummer H2 super stretch SUV, or one of our luxury party buses, with capacities of up to 36 guests!

If you aren’t sure which to choose, give us a call today, and let our wedding limousine experts guide you to the right choice for your special day.

Thanks for reading, and good luck!

‘Tis The Season

It’s the most wonderful time of the year- Indeed it is!!!!!!!!!  Lots of hustle and bustle in the malls, children in a hurry to take pictures with Santa and many are traveling afar to be with their loved ones.   Many times people get so busy preparing for the holidays they forget to take a moment to enjoy one another in a fun relaxed setting.   Whatever you decide consider getting a limo to make your night or day one to remember.

Christmas Lights

Every year in many different cities the amazing candy cane lane is created with an abundance of lights and creative murals that express the joy of this time of year…It gets crowded and parking could be overwhelming and time consuming…. Don’t stress out- leave this kinda stuff to your well trained driver.

Christmas Lights 1

Here are a few locations to consider.

Westlake Village Inn, Westlake Village

800-535-9978

Thousands of sparkling twinkle lights bring holiday cheer to this charming European-style inn, set on seventeen acres in Westlake Village. Christmas trees and poinsettias are scattered throughout the property, creating a winter wonderland. Take advantage of one of their winter overnight specials and catch live entertainment every Friday and Saturday evening in Bogie’s Night Club & Bar. Or, just stop in for dinner at Mediterraneo.

Beverly Hills Christmas 2

Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills

Twinkle lights and red ribbons adorn the trees, lavish holiday displays decorate the shop windows, poinsettias are planted in the center divider, and the infamous Pretty Woman hotel, The Regent Beverly Wilshire, is bejeweled with lights and interior decorations- a sight you don’t want to miss. Make a day of it and stop in for Afternoon Tea at the Regent. The hotel has a Holiday Desk available to answer questions concerning their festivities. Plan ahead for next year’s Nutcracker Tea, as reservations are sold out one year in advance- anyone who loves tea would love this…

 

Candy Cane Lane, Woodland Hills

Lubao Avenue and Oxnard Street

818-347-4737. Make sure to come during the week, as weekends are very busy. Most amazing, elaborate displays you’ve ever seen.

 

Candy Cane Lane, El Segundo

The eastern block of Acacia Avenue is announced by a Candy Cane Lane sign, marking a tradition of more than 60 years. Houses are alight with trains, reindeer, giant characters, and music, plus frequent appearances by Santa Claus in a covered sleigh at the end of the cul-de-sac. The lights go on at 6:00 pm; Santa usually sits down in his sleigh at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

This year, Candy Cane Lane’s program will begin on December 14, 2013. The street will be closed to cars, but parking is available throughout the neighborhood. The last night of the public display is December 23, keeping the street more private for the actual holiday.

Address:

1200 E Acacia

El Segundo, CA 90245


The lights, the beauty, the creative displays- it never gets old….. Every year I rent  a limousine from Century West Limousine.  The drivers know all the do’s and don’ts to avoid unnecessary stress.  Try it- you won’t regret it.
