pokemon-go-los-angeles-limo-services-2016-la-city-tours-by-blackhawkBecause of the high number of people requesting limo tours in order to catch Pokemons, we at Blackhawk have made a list of some of the most popular and best places for Pokemon Go in LA. Every Pokemon Go player will know that there’s nothing more annoying than watching all those rare Pokemons just fly by on the side of the freeway with no possibility of being caught. Of course playing on your cellphone is also incredibly dangerous while driving, which makes it even more annoying that most Pokemons seem to appear while driving fast down a street or road. But the perfect solution is here – for kids, teenagers, birthday parties, friends night’s out or for any other occasion, – Blackhawk is now proud to be able to offer chauffeured Pokemon hunts to some of the region’s most popular Pokemon spots.

Best Places for Water Pokemons

santa-monica-pier-2016-on-a-pokemon-go-city-tour-with-la-limoWhile most go to the Santa Monica- and Venice Beaches on their hunt for water Pokemons, there are many additional places that might be just as fun and rewarding. Both the Santa Monica Pier and many areas in Venice have pokéstops, which makes it easy to refill pokéballs while still looking for new ones. A recent birthday party of kids in a Ventura party bus ventured down to Santa Monica Beach for three reasons: 1) They had heard extremely rare types such as Dratini and Electabuzz are prevalent here, 2) The Santa Monica Pier has three Pokéstops, and 3) In order to catch water Pokemons. For the adult players, remember to go by the Rusty’s Surf Ranch on the pier for an exclusive $5 drink deal for Pokémon Go players. Looking for a place for water Pokemons while dining? The beautiful Cheesecake Factory on the beach in Marina del Rey might be your best shot. Not just a pokéstop with gym nearby, with its location on the beach it draws an incredibly huge amount of rare Pokemons. Many limousine rental riders have caught Pokemons such as Seel, Shelldeer, Squirtle, Hitmonlee, Gloom, Kabutops, and so many more at this location. Just a short walk from the ocean shore, go for a stroll at the beach in between refilling for pokéballs at the pokéstop for an even bigger chance of catching a water type.

Pokehunting & Rollercoasters

Theme parks are meccas for PokéStops, gyms, and Pokemons!

Universal Studios Hollywood might be our number one recommendation for best places for Pokemon Go in LA. Our gamer clientele have told us there are “way more than twenty pokéstops here,” and many rare Pokemons have been caught here. Similarly, we recently transported Santa Barbara limo clientele from Montecito to Disneyland because of the theme park’s abundance of Pokemons. “Nearly all rollercoasters are also pokéstops,” a satisfied mother told the chauffeur after their day of rides and pokéhunting in Disneyland. If you end up heading to Universal, make sure to take a stroll along Universal CityWalk for a great chance of seeing rare Pokemons and discovering many pokéstops in addition to CityWalk’s two gyms. As far as inside Universal Studios, you can enjoy 20 pokéstops at the Studio tours and visit the park’s numerous gyms. Not to forget, the studio tours are also a great way of getting your eggs to hatch early! Don’t forget to go by the Transformers ride for not just a gym, but two pokéstops.

Pokemon Go Malibu Wine Tours!

This old vehicle at Malibu Family Wines is also a PokéStop.

Malibu Family Wines is the best place for enjoying a wine tour while still catching Pokemons. Not only does this winery offer a gym, but also two pokéstops, which can make a visit here a lot of fun! By their private safari tours further up the Malibu Canyons there isn’t just an additional pokéstop, but people of all ages will love their safaris featuring animals such as buffalos, camels, zebras, giraffes, alpacas, turtles, and more. If you arrive on your own, this is also the place where you will be parking your vehicle before jumping on one of their many shuttles going back to the winery. One of the major reason limousine rental clients fall in love with this place is their great weekend entertainment, featuring karaoke nights, movie screenings, standup comedy, concerts, and much more! Many visitors here combine their tours with visits to the Malibu Café, where you can also find numerous pokéstops as well as a gym. The Malibu Café also has a gorgeous creek running by which increases your chances of catching water types. Come by after dark for a higher chance of witnessing rare and desired Pokémon types. Other Malibu wine-tasting venues include Cornell as well as Rosenthal Wine Bar & Patio. Clientele booking Malibu wine tours to Rosenthal love that it’s right across from the Pacific Ocean, increasing the chances of catching water types. Being a gym, Ladyface Alehouse in Agoura is popular for many renting our Ventura party bus vehicles and limousines for mixing wine-tasting with poké-hunting.

5 Best Tips For an Unforgettable Day in SoCal

With thousands of Californians and visitors annually booking our transportation services, we’ve gotten to know the SoCal region pretty well. From hot air balloon rides, sunset cruise dining on the ocean, camping on an island for yourself – here are some of the coolest things our clientele has done in the Southern California region! With nearly 300 days of sunshine yearly, hundreds of miles of sandy beaches and a never-sleeping metropolis, SoCal definitely is the spot that has it all.

Never-ending nightlife

Blackhawk-Ventura-party-bus-HollywoodAre you looking for that never-ending nightlife LA is so known for? We know all the places! Some of the most popular night clubs include Avalon Hollywood, the Sound Nightclub, Exchange LA, the Conga Room at L.A. Live, and The Edison. These places are extremely popular and often crowded, but offer an amazing opportunity to party and dance the night away. Many clients mistakingly think the nightlife of SoCal has to end early. Now that is wrong. While it is true that many Los Angeles nightclubs close by 2-, 3- or 4 am, LA is also home to many that stay open as long as you’re up. While Exchange LA has open till 6 am on Saturdays, Los Globos is open until 6 am on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Maybe the most visited late night club in the Greater L.A. Area, the Avalon Club on Vine Street, is open until 5 am on Fridays and 8 am on Saturdays. With 24/7 hour services, you never have to stop the party with an LA- or Ventura party bus either. For other places open as late as you need, check out the opening times of the bars of Hollywood and Downtown, or contact us for any questions you may have about LA nightlife or inquiries for L.A. limousines or LAX airport sedan offers. Our fleet includes everything from party buses, SUV’s, stretch limos and town cars. See also our own Santa Barbara Nightlife Guide.

Amazing shopping opportunities

limousine-Santa-Monica-limo-service-in-LASanta Monica’s Third Street Promenade might the most popular shopping district in Southern California. There are of course other places, such as various malls and outlets, including the Camarillo Outlets and many others, but the Third Street Promenade and its Santa Monica Place mall seem to be the two most popular shopping places for our customers. Preferred for its broad pedestrian-only streets, there is no need to bring your car to the Third Street Promenade. Located close to the Santa Monica Pier and Beach, combining a day at the beach with some shopping is a great way of spending the most out of your time. Obviously most chosen by our Santa Barbara limo customers is the city’s main street, State Street. For souvenirs and unique Southern California items, check out the Hollywood Walk of Fame or the Venice Boardwalk! Some other hugely popular places of shopping includes the many larger malls of the L.A. region. Some of these include Hollywood & Highland Center on Hollywood Boulevard, the Grove, the Beverly Center, the Americana at Brand, the Glendale Galleria, and the Westfield Pavailion. For Ventura limousine and Ventura party bus clients, the Pacific View Mall is popular, along with the Camarillo Outlets as well as the Oaks in Thousand Oaks. Whatever your location in SoCal, contact Blackhawk to hear about our recommendations for great shopping in your respective place!

Gorgeous coastline

 

California-beach-limousines
Manhattan-, Hermosa-, and Redondo Beaches are among the best in L.A. County

The area is home to many miles of sandy Pacific beaches, with many places worth checking out. We often recommend Santa Barbara limo clients to first make a visit to East Beach by Stearns Wharf, the main city beach on the American Riviera. For LA customers, we would recommend Santa Monica, and also nearby Venice. For dining on the beach itself, check out Duke’s or Shutter’s on the Beach for some great on-the-beach dining. What about a dinner at sea? Many people take their dates on sunset cruise dinners at the ocean, offered by the S.B. Sailing Center and often serviced by our limos in Santa Barbara. Another tip for an amazing dinner could be flying from the Camarillo Airport to Santa Cruz Island for a dinner and night in Avalon. For the most scenic beaches of Southern California, head down to Orange County to visit Manhattan-, Laguna-, or Newport Beaches. It is also in Orange County we find 1,000 Steps Beach, often rated one of the most picturesque beaches in California. Often serviced on our L.A.- and Malibu wine tours are trips to the various tasting-rooms overlooking the Pacific, including the Deep Sea Tasting Room as well as Rosenthal. For those that truly love the ocean, venture out to the Channel Islands National Park! Here you can camp for the night, hike in beautiful surroundings, and maybe even see an endemic Channel Islands Fox! Many species are native to the islands and found nowhere else on Earth. Explore the Channel Islands to experience how SoCal really was, – and how the Chumash Indian people lived for thousands of years before the Europeans “discovered” the Americas!

Hot air balloon rides

limousines-in-Santa-Barbara-limosWhat could possibly beat a hot air balloon ride over the American Riviera? Not much! Contact Sky’s The Limit for your balloon ride over the vineyards! There are hot air balloon companies throughout Southern California for an option closer to you. Check for example out Hot Air Balloon Adventure in Newbury Park, Limoneira in Santa Paula, or Temecula Valley’s A Great Escape Balloon Adventure. For an alternative romantic getaway in the skies, research the many cool helicopter- and small plane excursions! For helicopter sightseeing over Solvang, check out Helinet Aviation Services. For day trips to Santa Rosa Island, contact the Channel Islands Aviation for your flight out of the Camarillo Airport. Blue Edge Parasailing on Stearns Wharf in Santa Barbara is another great alternative. Many clients also fly out to Santa Catalina Island’s Airport-in-the-Sky for a nice evening and dinner in Avalon on the “Island of Romance.” For awesome private sailplane rides over the wine country of Santa Ynez, check out Windhaven Glider Rides. Four other companies offering tours include Heli-Tours, Channel Islands Adventure, Santa Barbara Aviation, SEA Santa Barbara, as well as Seventh Heaven. Seeing the vineyards from above will give new insight to Santa Ynez- and Malibu wine tours, and a great compliment to some great-tasting wines.

World-class entertainment
