Have you always dreamed of taking off around America on the road trip of a lifetime? Whether you’re tempted by the iconic sights of Route 66, the epic scenery of the Pacific Coast Highway, or the diverse landscapes of the Blue Ridge Parkway, there’s no shortage of memorable journeys to be enjoyed across the United States. And while it’s certainly possible to experience them in your own vehicle, renting a limo is a surefire way to turn a good adventure into a great one.
But which limos should you choose for a road trip to remember? Here’s our run down of some of the best.
Stretch Hummer limos
If you’ve ever visited Las Vegas, you’ve probably seen a few of these monsters trawling the strip. But stretch Hummer limos aren’t just for quick jaunts across the city. With their spacious interiors, they’re ideal for long journeys across state lines. And because they come with fun extras like on-board dance floors and karaoke machines, they’re great for road trips to America’s party cities — think Miami Beach to New Orleans, or San Francisco to Los Angeles.
So much of a great American road trip is taking in the sights — whether it’s the awe-inspiring beauty of the Grand Canyon or the geysers and mountain peaks of Yellowstone National Park. And what better way to do so than from the comfort of a stretch Chrysler limousine? These first-class vehicles typically seat at least 8 passengers, with plenty of room to kick back and enjoy the view. And with a state-of-the art sound system on board, you can easily select the perfect soundtrack to your adventure.
Cadillac Escalade limos
Does anything scream American road trip more than a Cadillac? If you want to go down that route, why not up the ante with a Escalade limousine? Whether you’re driving through the Deep South on a pilgrimage to Memphis and Nashville or cruising the city streets of New York, these slick, spacious vehicles can seat as many as 20 people in comfort — making them a great choice for family reunions, bachelor and bachelorette parties, or just get-togethers with friends.
If you need a little more room than what your standard limousine has to offer, a party bus could be just the solution. Capable of carrying as many as 50 passengers, these vehicles aren’t just popular with those planning to hit the clubs and bars — they’re a great way for any group of people to travel together, with an added touch of fun. If you’re planning a long road trip — such as Route 20 from Massachusetts to Oregon — kick back with your squad and enjoy your favorite movie as you drive through the night to your next destination.
One for lovers of the quirky and individual, school bus rental allows adventurers to traverse the United States in their own piece of classic Americana. Although they don’t typically come with the luxury fixtures and fittings that other limos boast, school buses do offer affordability and plenty of room, making them a great choice for those on a budget. So if you’re planning a tour of the American Midwest — or perhaps heading east to the Grand Circle — why not enjoy a blast from the past and travel on board your own retro school bus?
