Enjoy the Fourth in an Annapolis Limousine

Friday, June 20th, 2014

fireworksIndependence Day is quickly approaching – it’s only two weeks away! The fourth represents American Independence and summer coming into full swing. You should celebrate the right way: from the back of a limousine. For most people, the Fourth is one big red, white, and blue party. And who can blame you, especially since it falls on a Friday this year? It should be a big weekend celebration! There’s plenty going on in the Baltimore and Annapolis area for the Fourth of July this year and we’d like the opportunity to help you to see as many of the events as possible! Check out what’s coming for this year’s independence celebration.

Annapolis Fireworks – Fireworks are arguably the best part of the American Independence Day celebration and as America’s original capital, Annapolis knows how to do fireworks the right way. The fireworks will be launched at 9:15 from a barge in the harbor. Annapolis will be a busy place around firework time. Do you really want to try to drive and park in the Annapolis harbor area right before the fireworks? Probably not. Renting a limo, car, or limo bus will make your evening much easier!

Band Concerts – If you like instrumental music and concert bands playing the best of American Patriotic songs, you’ll enjoy the Naval Academy Band’s Concert Band playing at Susan Campbell Park. The music kicks off at 8 and will go right through the fireworks. Enjoy the best of what Annapolis has to offer through the American Naval Academy.

Baltimore Historic Ship Party – Everyone loves looking at the old ships in Baltimore Harbor. Can you imagine how much fun it would be to party on them? The Annual Independence Day Deck Party starts at 7 on the Fourth and goes until 10. Classic American barbecue along with beer, wine, and more will be served on the ship. The tickets are all-inclusive passes to the fun for the evening. You’ll have a great view of the fireworks and will even get to experience some cannon fire.

Be smart on the Fourth and let someone else do the driving, especially if you choose to engage in any drinking. You’ll be able to have a great time with friends and family at the various Annapolis and Baltimore festivities in the area and know that you’ll be able to get home safely at the end of the night.

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. Our commitment is to provide the ultimate luxury transportation experience that meets or exceeds your expectations.

Rent a Limo for Annapolis Wine Tastings

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Wine Tasting AnnapolisSpring is officially in the air. The weather is starting to warm up in Annapolis and with it comes more outdoor activities and a spring awakening. For vineyards, spring is the beginning of a really fun wine tasting season. There are many vineyards in the Annapolis and Baltimore area that have wine tastings and festivals in the upcoming months; what better way to celebrate a good wine than with good friends and a luxurious limo ride from Blanchard Limousine? If you’re going to do a wine tasting, you might as well do it up right and take the time to enjoy a classic spring and summer pastime. Renting a limo for a wine tasting presents multiple advantages.

  • A classy date – Nothing says a fun date like a wine tasting. Treating someone to the finest wines and wineries in Maryland is both romantic and fun. When you rent a limo, you add to the luxuriousness of the experience and show your date that you really care about them enjoying their time with you.
  • Safe driver – Sometimes at wine tastings, you end up with more than just the few samples of wine that you had bargained for. This can end in the inability to safely drive yourself home, which is the last thing you want, especially if you’re out with other people. Our chauffer’s top priority is to get you around safely.
  • Group outing – It can be difficult to fit everyone into one car or to coordinate who’s driving, who’s riding with whom, and who gets to actually drink the wine. When you rent a limo, you don’t have to worry about any of it. Our limos can seat up to ten people comfortably so you can enjoy spending time with friends or family without worrying about driving.
  • RELAX – The point of a wine tasting is to spend a day relaxing. Riding in a limo is a great way to take the relaxation and the fun time with you. Enjoy a day of rest and relaxation; you’ve earned it.
