Limousine Trivia

Limousines almost always catch the attention of others when they drive down the road, but have you ever wondered about the history of limousines?  Here are some interesting facts:
  • The word limousine comes from a region of France called Limousin. It is said that the compartments physically resembled the hoods worn by the local shepherds.
  • The first automobile limousine was built in 1902.
  • The first stretch limousine was built in Arkansas in 1928.
  • Originally, limousines were often used to transport big bands and were called "big band buses."
So now you're ready to impress your friends the next time ride in a limousine or see when driving by! For your limousine needs, call Lands End Limousines.

Make Holiday Travel Happy!

Will you be traveling for the holidays? If so, does that have you excited or stressed out? Holiday travel can be chaotic and worrisome for so many reasons. Packing can be challenging due to layers of heavy winter clothing and presents for family and friends. Road conditions can be slick and icy with fewer hours of light to make the journey easier. GPS systems, although helpful, are notorious for missing the final destination. 

What can make holiday travel more enjoyable? Hiring a limo from Lands End Limousine! Let our drivers navigate the roads and find your destination. Choose a car with more room for luggage and presents than your vehicle has. Begin your vacation as soon as the driver pulls away from your home! Rather than driving, sit back and enjoy those you are traveling with, read a book, or just close your eyes and get some rest. 

Lands End Limousines are a great option for transport to airports, train stations, bus terminals, and ferry's or use our service for your entire trip!  Call us to learn more and get pricing. Let Lands End Limousines help create happier holidays!
