Drivers are only as good as their cars, which is why SFC Limo's ace chauffeurs keep a fleet of superior sedans and stretch limos on hand. They rev up the stretch limos during weddings and specialty group trips to Muir Woods, Napa Valley, and throughout downtown San Francisco. Passengers can customize the daylong jaunts by telling their driver to head toward a certain nightspot, park alongside a specific scenic view, or veer into a certain winery to get the ghosts of the California Raisins off their trail. For more business-minded migrations, the drivers hop into their sedans and transport guests to San Jose, Oakland, or San Francisco airports.
From the moment customers pull into the lot, Anza Parking streamlines the process of airport travel. Free valet service allows patrons to hop out of their cars and immediately hand their luggage to an attendant, who will load it onto one of the shuttles that leave for the terminal every five to eight minutes. Those who prefer to park their own rides can avoid lugging their baggage through the lot with courtesy rides to a waiting shuttle, which will take a mere 10 minutes to ride to the terminal. After hopping off return flights, customers need only board one of the 24/7 shuttles at the airport, show the driver their location card with details where their car is, and hope that the bee trapped inside the cabin has died, preventing yet another multiday trip.
At the helm of a fleet of limousines and sedans, the professional drivers of ICU Transportation inject a potent dose of transportational class into business meetings, weddings, or trips to the airport. Their upholstered, wood-veneered luxury automobiles stand ready to take guests to the airport or spirit teens and their orangutan butlers to prom. To add some pomp to circumstances, guests can arrange to surprise loved ones with a limo at their door, whisking them away for a romantic evening of stylish cruising.
Joe Limo's fleet of vans, stretch limousines, buses, and Lincoln Town Car sedans whisk passengers to their destinations for a wide range of occasions. Wine country explorers can tap the drivers for safe schlepping from vineyard to vineyard, while city tourists can call on them to take them to the airport, where they can catch a flight or pet their favorite jumbo jet. Wedding parties and out-on-the-town revelers can also call upon the company for safe and expeditious transportation.
The Hershey Theatre, conceived in 1933 by noted philanthropist and chocolatier Milton S. Hershey, stands as an opulent tribute to the performing arts. Taking architectural cues from Saint Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the foyer’s towering arches gleam with golden paint and crystal chandeliers. The blue-and-gold mosaic that leads to the main seating area is the masterwork of two German artists who spent two years on its construction. Once inside the theater, audiences might think they’ve stepped onto the streets of Venice thanks to the atmospheric ceiling, stonework facades, and gondoliers paddling them to their seats. ####Bethel Woods Center for the Arts Music has permeated the 800 manicured acres where the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts has stood since 1969, when farmer Max Yasgur agreed to let love, peace, and harmony grow wild at the very first Woodstock festival. These days, the renowned outdoor venue and cultural center continues to attract the biggest acts in music to its pavilion stage. The open-air design ensures ample ventilation on the natural sloping lawn, and a roof protects up to 15,000 fans from inclement weather and the prying eyes of Cessna pilots.
The Hilton San Francisco Financial District, located just one block from Chinatown, transforms its grounds into prime parade-viewing real estate during the annual Chinese New Year Parade. The three-hour celebration ushers in the Year of the Snake, which is recognized throughout Chinese culture as a symbol of intelligence and intuition. Attendees can snag seats in the bandstand just outside the hotel, where they'll witness the parade reach its culmination with a flurry of spellbinding colors, extravagant floats, and elaborate costumes. Marching bands and fleet-footed dancers infuse the lively celebration with a healthy dose of music and impressive athleticism, all while the newly crowned Miss Chinatown USA and her court preside over the festivities. Certain to delight is Gum Lung, a 268-foot Golden Dragon manned by more than 100 martial artists and supervised by a group of bouncers wearing knight’s armor.
