One of the most fascinating and mysterious places in America, the City of Angels is where you may encounter world-famous movie stars at the local convenience store. The restaurant waitress might be a part-time actress, and the salesman at the shopping center might just as well be a screenwriter.
You will feel like you are in a movie yourself when maneuvering the city with the sun on your face and palm-lined boulevards in all directions. Maybe the most exciting part about LA is its unique diversity. At the first glance, you may feel L.A. is a superficial glossy paradise. The women may look like Barbie dolls in certain areas, and the men may spend more time at the gym or beach than at work.
But Los Angeles is truly the one place that has everything. The city not only boasts 22 Nobel Prize winners and major research centers but is home to world-class museums, famous galleries, high-caliber art collections, and lively theaters. Let the number one limo rental service present to you the city of contradictions: from Hollywood glamour to earthquakes, New Age bastion, and the Gang Capital of America. Eternal sunshine and blue clear skies to El Niño rainstorms with major mudslides. Beach fun and gigantic forest fires.
An intro to City of Angels
The mega-metropolis of LA is an experiment that redefines itself each and every day. Offering limos for rent throughout all of Southern California, we serve Los Angeles County’s 10.1 million residents and the more than eighteen million people living in the Greater L.A. Area and its suburbs.
LA’s population comes from more than 150 different countries and speaks over a hundred languages where English or Spanish is the first language for nearly 85 percent of the city population. Other larger languages include Tagalog, Mandarin, Armenian, Farsi, Russian, Cantonese, Korean, and over a hundred others. With over 300,000 Native Americans, the State of California has a higher native population than any other state. While there were over 100 spoken native languages in California in pre-colonial times, the most common native languages today include Navajo, Cherokee, Sioux, Apache, and Choctaw.
Wanna learn more about the native history of the state? A Thousand Oaks party bus ride to the Chumash Museum in Thousand Oaks can be an educational and exciting experience! Clients can also enjoy seeing ancient Chumash pictographs on various of our Santa Barbara- and Malibu wine-tasting tours. Santa Barbara’s Chumash Painted Cave State Historic Park is a particularly interesting stop where you can interpret and nearly touch 1,000-year-old Indian pictographs!
For countless years, LA has been the place where people cut off from the shackles of their old lives and put everything behind with destination Los Angeles in mind.
As the former mayor Tom Bradley has told LAX sedan clients arriving at LAX and other L.A. airports: “If you’re looking for the place to be free, where you can do the things that are impossible elsewhere, you should head to the City of Angels.” Whether you’re heading here with the hope of making money, as a refugee from persecution, or just here on your Californication, limo services can make your California adventure memorable, luxurious, and adventurous.
We’ve even heard countless times from foreigners arriving and renting LAX sedan rentals services that tell us: “Even flying into LAX is an adventure, especially after dark!” This monster of a widespread metropolis is wider and bigger than most, and with over seventy miles of beaches, the views can be pretty spectacular when you fly in at LAX or other Southern California airports. Limousine rental customers flying into LA can see the more than 6,000 square miles mega city of crisscrossing avenues and boulevards, with patches of green parks – such as America’s largest urban park, Griffith Park.
From Griffith Park, you can also enjoy unbeatable panoramic views of Los Angeles and you can go for a stroll in nearby Griffith Park for the chance of spotting a wild mountain lion in the midst of the metropolis(!)
While many don’t realize, LA County is in fact compromised of 88 independent and integrated cities, divided by two larger mountain ranges and connected by various networks of crisscrossing highways. The most scenic drive might be the coastal drive up to the City of Malibu, a beloved destination for everything from dining to Malibu wine-tasting tours to beaching on some of the region’s most scenic beaches.
Enjoy a dinner at Nobu Malibu, Geoffrey’s Malibu, or the Carbon Beach Club Restaurant at Malibu Beach Inn for an unbeatable view of the Pacific Ocean and the even bluer skies. You can also spread out the towel for some sunbathing among the surfers at Zuma Beach, or head to the quiet El Matador State Beach and you might just get a glimpse of the dolphins playing in the Pacific’s waves. From taking a morning bath in the sea you can go for limos for rent heading to Big Bear Mountain for skiing or snowboarding the very same day.
Always take the heavy traffic into consideration. Often caused by the long distances and lack of public transportation services, traffic can often be a pain in LA. Further expansions of highway networks rely on costly earthquake-resistant buildings, but a limousine rental can make your time stuck in traffic more tolerable with state-of-the-art speakers and a full bar, even gaming devices and dancing poles in larger party bus vehicles.
The City of Angels started small. Originally named El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de Los Ángeles de Porciúncula, Los Angeles was founded on September 4, 1781, in “the Bay of Smoke” (today’s San Pedro Bay, LA’s main harbor). The founders were approximately forty settlers including two from Spain, numerous Native Americans, African-Americans, and mestizos.
Today, Downtown LA is the best bet if you’re looking for a place to experience authentic Los Angeles. Here you can visit the oldest part of town, known as the El Pueblo de Los Ángeles Historical Monument, or go for a stroll along Olvera Street to hear mariachi bands, shop from the Mexican markets, and enjoy signature Mexican cuisine. Cruising Downtown LA with luxury limo services is guaranteed to give you the “big city” feel.
Enjoy a dinner or drink at one of the many skyscraper restaurants here (the Rooftop Bar is a popular choice) before venturing to the famous Walt Disney Concert Hall for a classical performance or LA Live for some of today’s biggest pop music. Wherever you go, the revitalization of Downtown is apparent. From a sleepy office district of town, Downtown’s increasingly becoming a favorite for people riding with limousine rentals in the state.
The center of L.A. nightlife can be found in the Hollywood area, centered around the Sunset Strip on Sunset Boulevard. The elegance and extreme wealth of places such as Beverly Hills and Bel Air are always interesting to explore. Why not pretend you’re Julia Roberts and go window-shopping on Rodeo Drive as in Pretty Woman (1990)?
In 2010 there were over 270,000 millionaires in L.A. County, and the surrounding suburbs have some of the wealthiest communities in the United States. An example could be Thousand Oaks’ Newbury Park, which boasts America’s 4th largest median household income. No wonder why so many book Thousand Oaks party bus services for their trips to San Francisco, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and other out-of-state cities.
Booking an LA to Vegas limo for your excursion to Sin City might be worth it. Imagine not having to care about the boring long drive, and instead enjoying a party with champagne in the back of stretch limos… But then again, why leave for America’s desert state when you can enjoy the Pacific Ocean’s beauty in the City of Angels?
All the larger boulevards lead to the ocean, including Sunset-, Santa Monica-, Mulholland-, Wilshire- and Venice Boulevards! Enjoy a dinner overlooking the sea at the Santa Monica Pier or take a stroll along the Venice Boardwalk to see the hippies, skater dudes, surfers, and fortune tellers. There’s a spectacular view from the Ferris wheel at the Pacific Park on the pier where you can see miles and miles of ocean as well as beautiful homes and mountains.
Getting in touch with limo services while in Southern California might be the best decision you’ve made in a long time. Being the entertainment capital of the world, cruising the avenues and boulevards by limos offer truly the iconic LA experience. Why not allow yourself a treat and live the life of your favorite celebrity in this fascinating and mysterious mega-town.
