5 Affordable Last Minute Labor Day Getaway

Posted On: 08/24/2016

1. Chicago

The Windy City makes a great, cost saving Labor Day Destination. Travel like a local Chicagoan, check out those deep-dish pizzas and Chicago-style dogs. Wander around these FREE attractions in Chicago: Lincoln Park Zoo, Millenium Park, Navy Pier.

To satisfy someone who is both a shopper and foodie, the Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival does the trick. It runs from August 24 through September 6, and it includes fashion shows and a wide variety of food.

2. Washington D.C

Are you a Hilary Clinton or a Donald Trump supporter? With the Presidental Election looming in Washington D.C, this is an excellent time to visit the capital. Known for its memorials and museums like Lincoln Memorial, Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and the White House, it is a great place to learn about the past and future of the United States. In addition to that, the National Symphony Orchestra performs for free on the West Lawn of the Capitol over the Labor Day weekend.

3. Toronto/Niagara Falls

Americans usually associate Canada with hockey, maple trees, and Justin Bieber. WHO? Anyway, Canada is actually filled with unexplored exotics and fascinating sceneries. Toronto is only a 90-minute flight from Boston and from there, you can go east, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal or head south to be amazed by the extraordinary Niagara Falls.

From September 4 through September 7, there is a Hot & Spicy Food Festival at the Harbourfront Centre aimed for people who love to be hot and sweaty in every bite they take.

4. Las Vegas

Travel around the "world" in the city that never sleeps with elaborately themed hotels like Caesars Palace, the Luxor, Paris Las Vegas. You can also test your luck in the endless casinos in Las Vegas. Whether you want an over-the-top Labor Day weekend or bring the children along for free and family oriented like chocolate factory tours and Cirque du Soleil, you sure not want to miss out on Las Vegas.

5. Cozumel

"Where is that?" You might ask. Cozumel is actually a small island off the coast of Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It is mostly undeveloped so you won't see many touristy places. In fact, the Fiesta American Cozumel's all inclusive resort offers as low as $128 per room. Although the back side is it is only available for a minimum of three nights, your meals are included and 35% credit towards scuba diving, and snorkelling. If you love white sand beaches and water activities for an extremely low price, look no further than Cozumel.

Don't miss out on an opportunity to travel to a place you've never been. C&L Air Limo offers transportation services to and from Manchester and Logan Airport. Give us a call today at (978) 692-9303 to book your ride!

Memorial Day 2016 Destinations

Posted On: 04/25/2016

Memorial Day is coming up at the end of May. Are you tired of backyard barbeque every Memorial Day? Dying to try something new for the holiday? How about going on an unforgettable trip?

Here are some top picks for destinations in 2016!

East Coast

Boston, MA - Yes, it’s basically next door and can be reached in an hour or two. But we would be remiss to not mention it at all. Boston’s a wonderful destination, especially for a long weekend at the start of summer. Museums, beaches, duck boats, great food and better entertainment.

Washington, DC - There are few destinations better than Washington, DC for Memorial Day festivities. The weekend is filled with military ceremonies, parades, and other patriotic events centered around the spirit of the holiday. DC is also a fantastic destination in its own right, with memorials and museums aplenty.

Atlanta, GA - Atlanta has undergone something of a resurgence over the past few years, and it shows no signs of stopping. ATL is a cultural melting put smack in the middle of the deep south, making it a unique city in the US. Add in destinations like Coca-Cola World, and annual events like the Atlanta Jazz Festival.

South

New Orleans, LA - The objection to my assertion of Atlanta’s uniqueness is New Orleans, which is truly a unique city in the United States. The distinct history runs through today, with the French Quarter still a prominent destination for visitors year-round.

Austin, TX - Austin is well known for its thriving music scene, a huge attraction for music lovers of all ages and the young & hip generally.

Jacksonville, FL - Jacksonville is a city built on the water, and adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean. Water, water everywhere, and plenty else to boot! Enjoy great food, sun, beaches, fishing, and more!

Miami, FL - A little (a lot!) further south from Jacksonville is Miami, one of the most well-known travel destinations in the United States. The center of south Florida’s nightlife, boasting beautiful beaches, resorts of all kinds, and the best Cuban cuisine this side of the Keys, Miami is a highlight destination.

Midwest

Chicago, IL - Chicago’s worth a vacation if only for the deep dish pizza! A vibrant city in the middle of the United States, its position at the coast of Lake Michigan means beautiful beaches and plenty of water to take advantage of.

Nashville, TN - If you’re craving a dip (or a dive) into American music history, Nashville is a definite must-visit. There’s a reason it’s been dubbed “Music City USA”-- there’s no telling the history of music in America without including it, and Nashville today is as welcome to visitors as it ever has been.

St. Louis, MO - St. Louis is hosts a bevy of festivals on Memorial Day, and is a beautiful and welcoming city in its own right year-round. It’s especially picturesque in the warmer months, when you can stroll and appreciate the city’s architecture.

West

Denver, CO - Denver has a lot to offer vacationers of all types. The Denver Zoo, Museum of Nature & Science, and Botanic Gardens are great destinations for everyone. If you’re looking for something different, Denver’s downtown has plentiful shopping, entertainment, and dining options.

Las Vegas, NV - America’s playground. If you want entertainment, nightlife, shopping, restaurants, or anything else, you can likely find it in Vegas, as well as plenty else. Accommodations range from the typical to the downright opulent, and usually have a price tag lower than you’d find anywhere else. Treat yourself!

Hawaii - This is about as far as you can go and remain in the US, but it’s one of those destinations that’s on everyone’s bucket list. A series of tropical islands far away from the hassles of daily life, with every kind of resort, fine dining and fun you can desire, in a place that’s like no other.

Wherever you’re going, you can trust C&L Air Limo to get you to your flights on-time, safely, and with a smile. Book your Memorial Day arrangements early, and reserve your airport shuttle with us!

Off-beat Accommodations Top AirBnB’s Most-Desired List

Posted On: 01/19/2016

AirBnB’s list of most-coveted destinations & accommodations are charmingly off-beat. Break the pace of a frigid winter with a weekend in a treehouse!

The frigid Massachusetts winter weather is a great reason to get away for a warmer climate, to relax, recharge, and remember what it’s like to feel warm outdoors. But maybe being stuffed into a hotel doesn’t suit you, and the price of a suite is a little too steep. AirBnB, the world leader in person-to-person accommodation connections, released its most-coveted listings, and “non-traditional” is emphatically the theme.

While most AirBnB listings are rooms in homes, the most in-demand listings are off-beat lodgings, usually detached from the main building. The balance of privacy, price, location, and unique setting attract the eyes of many travelers looking for a change of pace.

The most wishlisted accommodation types on AirBnB include:
  1. Treehouse

  2. Igloo

  3. Van

  4. Lighthouse

  5. Cave

  6. Island

  7. Yurt

  8. Train

  9. Loft

  10. Cabin

The Top 10 Most Wish-Listed Properties on AirBnB include:

  1. Secluded Intown Treehouse in Atlanta, Georgia

  2. The Seashell House ~ Casa Caracol in Mexico

  3. Casa Barthel in Tuscany, Italy

  4. Unique Cob Cottage in Mayne Island, BC, Canada

  5. Aroma(n)tica TreehouseinMonferrato in San Salvatore Monferrato, Alessandria, Italy

  6. Mushroom Dome Cabin in Aptos, CA

  7. Pirates of the Caribbean Getaway in Topanga Canyon, CA

  8. Balian Treehouse with private pool in Bali

  9. Brand New Mini Loft in Rome, Italy

  10. Off the Gridit House, in Pioneertown, CA

It’s definitely worth checking these listings out. A treehouse in Tuscany looks a world-and-a-half more interesting than any airport hotel!

As you can see, off-beat is the theme. Book something out of the ordinary to break the winter routine, and book airport shuttle service with us to save on getting to and from. We’ll get you to Boston Logan or Manchester Airport on-time, safely, and smoothly, for as little as $76. Call us at (800) 247–7080 or (978) 692-9303, or contact us online. Happy travels!


Planning Your Trip to the Airport

Posted On: 12/23/2015

Heading out of state for a trip? Getting to and from the airport is an important part of your vacation, and requires as much attention as the flight itself. C & L Air Limo has been providing smooth, friendly, and safe transport to Boston Logan and Manchester airports for nearly 30 years. We’ve kept our excellent employees for 5+, 10+, and 15+ years, so the entire C & L team has plenty of experience handling surprises, bad traffic, and other unforeseen complications. Getting you where you need to be on time requires planning, foresight, and adaptability. Our veteran drivers and staff have all of it.

There are things you can do in advance to ensure your trip goes as smoothly as possible. Here are some things you can do to ensure your shuttle trip happens hassle-free.

Book Early.

Book Early

Booking your airport shuttle at your first opportunity takes a ton of stress away. Right away, you know that part of your arrangements is taken care of. Further, if you book far enough in advance, it makes things easier on us, especially if you’re the first appointment booked for that day. We can plan around you, instead of trying to work you into the rest of our schedule.

Be sure to know (or at least have a ballpark idea about) a few things when you book your shuttle appointment. How many passengers will you have? Will you need any accommodation? How much luggage will you be bringing?

Keep Us Updated.

Updated

Plans change, we know that. You don’t do transportation very long without learning that lesson, and we’ve been doing it for a while! We’ll do everything we can to accommodate changes in your plans, but we need to know about them in order to do that. Informing us as soon as you know what changes have been made will give us as much time as possible to adjust things on our end, if that needs to happen.

Confirm Your Appointment.

Airport Confirmation

A final check on any plan is always a good idea, if only for your own peace of mind. Get in touch the day before to confirm your appointment, and rest easy knowing we’ll be there on time, ready to get you to the airport quickly, safely, and smoothly.


Comfortable Transportation to Your Fall Destinations

Posted On: 10/27/2015

Fall is upon us, and has brought a serious chill with it. Now is the time for hot spiced drinks, roasts, and travel! Whether you’re heading somewhere sunny or visiting family for the holidays, C&L Air Limo can help you get where you want to go.

C&L offers comfortable and convenient air shuttle service to Boston Logan and Manchester Airports. We offer competitive affordable rates, starting at $76 each way.

Many of our drivers and staff have been with C&L for 10-20 years, and have what it takes to ensure your trip is smooth and pleasant, whatever driving conditions or airport delays happen. We’ve seen it all, and know how to get things done under all different circumstances.

When planning your holiday travel, please keep in mind extra time to account for heavy road traffic and an increased number of travelers in the airports themselves. For non-holiday travel, Boston Logan recommends arriving two hours before a domestic departure, and three hours before an international departure; and Manchester Regional recommends arriving 90-120 minutes before your scheduled departure. During the holiday season, more time should be allowed for slow traffic, adverse road conditions, and increased waiting times in the airport.

Most importantly, C&L Air Limo is committed to providing a smooth and friendly travel experience-- the first time, and every time. So call us at (800) 247–7080 or (978) 692-9303 for your holiday travel needs, and rest assured knowing your trip will start and end in good hands.

Summer is Almost Over

Posted On: 08/16/2014

It always seems as though summer finally arrives and then it is gone in the blink of the eye. With the month of August underway, we start to accept that fall is approaching and the weather will begin to shift away from hot, sunny days. The foliage and sweater weather certainly is not all that bad, but if you're not quite ready to say goodbye to beach days then perhaps a trip to a nice hot spot is just what you need. The end of the year, especially once the snow hits, is the ideal time for a getaway. The vacation planning process often has its bumps in the road, but one thing we can guarantee on our end of services is a reliable ride to the airport whether you hope to fly out of Logan or Manchester.

Spring has finally arrived! It has been a long, cold winter and we couldn't be more excited for the sunshine and warmer days ahead.

However, other reasons always arise for which a flight or trip is necessary.
