"We like to think of our services like [an airline] on the ground," says Anthony,
manager at Las Vegas Express. He oversees coaches and shuttles that make speedy trips from LA and Ontario to Las Vegas and back, with a quick layover in Ontario, where passengers can shop. While in LA, passengers can experience Los Angeles with activities such as shopping on Rodeo Drive or visiting Disneyland. Just like?or even better than?many airlines, the vehicles offer a few extra amenities, such as snacks, free drinks, and free Internet access. The staff also shows
blockbuster movies during the road trip, possible thanks to ceiling-embedded TVs placed throughout the coaches' interiors and the staff's certified ability to operate a DVD player. They also have other important talents, which include CPR.
The spotless environment of Limon Nail and Spa Boutique embodies a grown-up princess-chic look. Yellow and white stripes run across the walls, giving the space the sweet, sunny feel of a candy shop. White Queen Anne's chairs cushion guests as their nails are treated with color by expert manicurists. The therapy room is decorated in purple, where massages rejuvenate clients and waxing services release unwanted hair so it can go live on a farm in the country.
A little more than 250 miles lie between Los Angeles and Las Vegas?a distance travelers can cross in fewer than five hours on one of LA 2 LV in Style's luxury coaches. Seated in plush reclining seats, passengers can plug into the on-board outlets and surf the web via free WiFi, or they can gaze out the window at the passing scenery while enjoying a complimentary beverage. There's plenty of sights to see en route, from an old-fashioned ghost town to vast desert landscapes studded with cacti and hopeful kids with watering cans.
Commuting becomes a celebration once you step aboard Da Bus LA. The party bus combines all of the elements needed for a lively drive to a wedding, birthday party, or night out on the town: ice, cups, and a driver who won't comment on your singing. Each trip includes a complimentary bottle of champagne to get the festive journey started.
For any one who has ever stared nervously from the back seat of a cab as a meter on the dashboard racked up dollars like a pool shark, a limousine ride can be a welcoming experience. For over a decade, G & A Limousine Service?s 24-hour service has been transporting guests in meter-free elegance aboard standard Lincoln Town Cars and eight-person stretch limousines. Whether heading to a wedding, night on the town, or the airport, guests sink into plush leather seating while surreptitiously checking for signs of UFOs through the moonroof. LED strip lighting illuminates evenings in style as on-board decanters pour libations into supplied glasses and stemware. Every trip is furnished with soft drinks and snacks, and guests are invited to explore the web using free WiFi.
Photographer Stuart Townsley uses a trained eye and high-tech equipment to capture memories into frameworthy prints and digital art, using 10 of LA's most attractive landmarks as backdrops. The famed local sites where he sets up camp—such as the roaring Pacific Ocean under Santa Monica Pier or the 1930s architecture and picturesque fountain of Union Station—elegantly complement subjects' smiling visages. His shutter snaps hundreds of times during each photo shoot, immortalizing the faces, poses, and secret handshakes of families and well-behaved pets. Well-versed in state-of-the-art retouching gear, Stuart unfurls his astutely edited creations onto glossy prints, canvases, and online albums.
Stuart's advice on what to wear and bring to shoots, garnered through 12 years of professional experience, conveniently resides online to aid in the selection of appropriate outfits for every mother, father, child, or hamster.
