Limo Rental Tips
Formal dances and after-prom parties will probably look a little different this year due to the ongoing battle against the coronavirus pandemic in California, but that doesn’t mean all the celebrations have to come to a complete halt. With those current restrictions in mind, we have taken the time to create an exciting selection of luxury prom limo packages for San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area so you can sit back, relax, and safely create those once-in-a-lifetime memories with your friends and family.
Although the Bay Area temperatures may not feel that way at the moment, springtime will quickly be upon us here in San Francisco…with wedding season fast on its heels. It’s no secret that Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and Valentine’s Day are typically the three most popular holidays for engagements, so if you’re one of those lucky-in-love couples, let us be the first to congratulate you during this wonderful and exciting time in your lives!
Prom. It isn’t only a big moment for your son or daughter. It’s a milestone for you, as parents, as well. Whether your teenager is a junior or a senior, talk of the big dance is abuzz in the Bay Area. Students from Menlo School, Galileo High School, The Branson School, Lowell High School, and other grade-9-through-12 schools in Northern California are renting tuxedos, purchasing gowns, and, of course, working up the courage to ask that special someone to the night of their young lives. Nationwide Limousine Service would be honored to play an important role in creating the perfect prom memories.
For an event that (hopefully) only comes once in a lifetime, it’s important to pick the perfect venue, and in an area as beautiful as Northern California, that choice isn’t always easy – especially when it comes to outdoor venues. Rolling vineyards, towering redwood trees, white sand beaches, and sweeping landscapes make the Bay Area an arcade for unforgettable outdoor event venues. To help you narrow it down, here are three of our favorites.
San Francisco International Airport is a 10 mile drive from downtown, located near San Bruno and Millbrae. It is one of the busiest airports in America, and offers several international flights to Europe and Asia. Its abbreviation is SFO, and it has four runways, the longest being almost 12,000 feet. There are four terminals, 1, 2, 3, and International, along with a total of seven concourses that are in a large circle and range from A-G.
Ars gratia artis. L’art grace a l’art. Art for art’s sake. No matter what your first language may be, this enduring quotation captures the elusive nature and (somewhat) unquantifiable value of art in our lives very well. If you love artistic expression in some or all of its forms, it’s likely that you already know about the de Young, as it is one of the best art museums in the world and one of the most visited. Located in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the de Young is one of several San Francisco art museums that draw and delight visitors from all over the world each year.
Prom organizers at Tracy High School have seen attendance drop sharply in recent years as many students are renting party buses instead of going to prom. While party buses may be the ultimate in prom transportation, a surprising number of kids are choosing to organize their own prom nights in smaller groups. Tracy High School activities director Alayna Carter says that some kids think that renting a party bus is a more fun and exciting option than an evening of dinner and dancing at Tracy’s Portuguese Hall.
“The kids just aren’t showing up any more,” she said recently. “They… take the party bus to San Francisco, walk around, eat wherever and drive back to someone’s house. They weren’t going to the dance, because they figured it’s just in Tracy, when they can go and do stuff out of town.”
If you’re planning a trip this summer with a larger group of people and want to minimize the expense and maximize the fun, reserve our Bay Area bus charter service for your trip and enjoy the best in comfortable and affordable group transportation!
A recent survey conducted by credit card giant Visa found that the average cost of going to prom is now more than $1,078. High school proms are certainly some of the high points of a young person’s life, but Visa’s survey found that kids and parents are spending increasingly larger sums of money for clothing, shoes, dinner, tickets, pictures, salon services, limo rentals and other costs.
There are plenty of Bay Area limousine companies out there trying to attract clients for their town car service. This service fills an important niche, as residents occasionally need black car services for Bay Area airport transportation, transporting important clients, doctor’s appointments, other errands in the city and many other practical and, occasionally, fun and impractical reasons.
