Patrons get a glimpse of stardom as they cruise in a selection from Want Limo's fleet of sleek and sexy stretch limos, town cars, and party buses, all helmed by professional drivers. Merrymaking bachelorettes can scoot into a 12-passenger super-stretch limousine, where ribbons of neon lights and cushy benches wrap around a colorful bar, or a party bus fit for 22 revelers with a pole for engaging in sultry spins or practicing for first Maypole festivities as a married couple. Sporting an obsidian leather interior behind a glossy black exoskeleton, the executive stretch Lincoln town car shuttles travelers to and from the airport in style as they sip on champagne. Prom-night roadsters purr their way to predance bashes and safely convey dates and overprotective big brothers to dinner, dances, and after parties.

Town Cars make for stately business travels, and partiers can hop into one of Awesome's limos, cruising with iPod docking stations, starlight-style ceilings, and futuristic bar arrangements with complimentary sodas and waters. All vehicles are outfitted with a tracking system that can be used at any time during the service, allowing you to check in on your car's arrival time or monitor young prom-goers without the talkback of a magic mirror.

When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
