There's a lot to do in Chicago. Our theme song is “My Kind of Town” because it doesn't matter what interests you have, you can find a way to scratch that itch somewhere in the city. Whether it's a night out of dancing, fine dining, music appreciation, theater, all of the above or something else all together, the Windy City has it in spades.
Of course, if you want to enjoy a night on the town, it's only right to do it in style. Get cleaned up, dress to the nines, gather the gang together, and jump in the back of a limo to show the world who's boss. It doesn't matter where you're going or what you're doing; the only thing that matters is that you have the time of your life doing it.
There are a lot of benefits to hiring a car, some that are obvious and others that might not jump out at first. In an age where the economy still hasn't fully recovered, it's important to rationalize every dollar spent. If you're planning a night on the town, doesn't it make sense to put that money to work somewhere else?
The thing is, it isn't as superfluous as it might seem to hire a car for the evening. In a city of this size, there are a lot of hidden costs associated with getting around, including time, money, and mental stability. It's certainly true that you can have a good time without a car and driver, but it's better to have a great time than a good time.
There's just something exciting about knowing that you'll be getting catered to from the very beginning. Few things make people feel as elegant and important as being chauffeured around, confident in the knowledge that everywhere you go, people will stop and pay attention to the group climbing out of the back of a limousine. It doesn't matter if you're not a rock star or a millionaire – people will treat you like one. In order to be treated special, you need people to perceive you as being special.
A limousine company is a classy business that survives on providing the best service to their customers regardless of where they come from, how much money they have, or how famous they are. Every passenger is special, and it's important that they know that. Being treated like royalty starts from the second you walk out that door to see a driver standing at the ready, door open to welcome you.
Although Chicago has fallen behind Los Angeles in size to become the third-largest city in the United States, it will always be known as “Second City” for a reason. The innovation that afforded the world air conditioning caused many northern cities to decline in population as people fled to the warmer southern states, but not Chicago. It's a city that defies expectations, and continues to flex it's cultural and economic muscles regularly, and millions of people will always call it home no matter what the weather does to them. Chicagoans have entirely too much spirit to dampen.
Unfortunately, this means that traffic and parking can be a pain. Streets are congested with cars and buses, so much so that drivers will often find themselves moving at a crawl. If you hire a limousine, that traffic becomes the driver's problem, and everyone else can be content knowing that they can enjoy the evening right where they are. Additionally, there's no reason to worry about finding parking that's both close and convenient. Again, it's somebody else's responsibility.
Sure, hiring a car isn't free, but no transportation is. Taxis may be everywhere, making them relatively convenient, but they're not always the best option. A limousine is an expense that lets you know what you're paying for. A taxi is an expense that continues to climb for each mile driven and each second spent staring at the trunk of the car in front of you while traffic is at a standstill.
One of the biggest advantages to taking a limousine is the atmosphere it creates. The passenger compartment of a limousine is a clean, classy place that never smells of the last passengers leftover lunch. There aren't ever stains on the seat, or raucous music coming from the stereo. As soon as you climb in, it's all about your wants and needs.
Luxury vehicles are all about the amenities. It's about the most comfortable seating, the most spacious accommodations. It's about having a refrigerator to store drinks in if it's a long limousine, or an ice bucket to chill a bottle of champagne in smaller cars. It's about a high quality audio system, an available DVD player, or just complete silence so everyone can chat and enjoy the company. It caters to individual needs instead of just providing a way to get around.
Finally, a limousine service is a way to guarantee the night won't stop due to some unforeseen car trouble. Even if something comes completely out of left field, the company will be there to make it right. There is no being stranded on the side of the road. Instead, there's waiting in the lap of luxury until the replacement shows up.
It's also a way to promise everyone will get where they're going. Professional chauffeurs are trained to know the city inside and out, so getting around never involves getting lost and asking for directions, or trying to figure out which one-way street is the right one. The only thing you have to do is get in and enjoy the ride.
Hiring a limo is a fun and affordable way to make sure a night on the town is as memorable as everyone expects it to be. You won't be let down.
