Why Should I Rent a Limousine for Baltimore Summer Concerts?

Friday, May 30th, 2014

baltimore summer concertSummer is in full swing, and you know what that means – summer concerts! Is your favorite band coming to Ram’s Head this summer? It’s time to buy tickets, and book your ride! Everyone wants to have fun without the burden of being the designated driver, so why not rent a limo for your concert transportation?

For one, it’s cost-effective.  We know you just spent a good deal on those concert tickets, so why spend more money on gas? Instead of taking multiple cars to the concert, you and your friends can save gas by hiring one of our Annapolis limousines.

Secondly, it’s timely. Maybe the babysitter was running late, or you had to change your outfit five times before leaving. A concert limousine will help to make sure you get to your destination as soon as possible. This way, you don’t have to waste time trying to find parking once you arrive.

Third, it’s safer. A limousine would be the safer alternative to a friend driving. Sometimes that friend may have just one more drink over their limit, putting the rest of the passengers at risk. Our drivers are safe, reliable, competent, and know their way through the complicated traffic patterns of the city. Nothing is worse than a lost driver, especially when in an unfamiliar place.

Fourth, it’s fun! Catch up with friends, hang out, listen to music, and enjoy a few drinks before the concert. This is your time to unwind after a long week, and we want to make sure you have the best experience possible.

Blanchard Limousines offers luxurious limousine services for all occasions. From weddings, bachelor(ette) parties, corporate events, prom, homecoming, or a night on the town, Blanchard has your happiness and safety in mind.

A History of the Limousine

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Limousine HistoryLuxury is an age-old tradition. Kings, queens, and nobles have insisted upon the best of the best for thousands of years. The tradition has trickled down to present day, but luxury has become a lot more accessibly now than it was thousands of years ago. Your average person can rent a limo or another car for a reasonable fee and spend a day being pampered and chauffeured around in comfort and relaxation. Have you ever wondered when the first limousine was invented or when the idea of a chauffeured vehicle came about? Check out the history of riding in comfort!

Origins
The word “limousine” comes from (who else) the French. Before actual limousines were created, the idea of chauffeured vehicles was invented through the use of horse drawn carriages. These started to gain popularity with the well-to-do in the 1700s. Those who could afford the carriages frequently had them inlaid with gold and jewels and only used the best bred horses to pull them.

Early Motorized Limousines
The first “limousines” as we know them today came shortly after the invention of the car, in the early 1900s. These vehicles had two different compartments: one for the driver and one for the passengers. A partition separated the two compartments, which is what was so alluring about a chauffeured service. Riding was private and great for business relations when matters needed to be discussed without others overhearing.

Stretch Limousines
The first limousines were more so just cars with partitions in them. The late 1920s saw the invention of the first stretch limousine in, of all places, Arkansas. Cadillac introduced one of the first  of its kind and remains a leader in sales of stretch limousines and luxury vehicles. Many people preferred stretch limousines because it meant being able to transport more people or having even more space.

Modern Limousines
Today, you can choose all different types of limousines, from limo busses to Hummer limos, and more. There are many options for a luxury chauffeured ride, but none is as popular as the classic black stretch limousine for events like proms, weddings, and corporate transportation. Limousines are the true way to ride in style. Many have televisions or mini bars and some even have state of the art sound systems that can make you feel like you’re sitting in the pit of an orchestra. Plus, all of this comes with privacy and convenience.

Blanchard Limousines enjoys carrying on the centuries old tradition, offering luxurious limousine services for all occasions. From weddings, bachelor(ette) parties, corporate events, prom, homecoming, or a night on the town, Blanchard has your happiness and safety in mind.
