Places to go in a Limo (NYC Edition)

We all know the usual places to take a limo—to prom, to your wedding reception, to your bachelor or bachelorette party.

But if you could take a limo anywhere in NYC, where would you want to go? We gave it some thought and made a shortlist of places that are just a little out of the way, that offer an incredible experience, and where you’ll want to arrive in style. Here’s the list.

1. Metlife Stadium

It’s a long trip out to the Meadowlands from NYC. But if you’re a passionate Giants or Jets fan, staying away is not an option.

Beside pro football, Metlife is the hub for all kinds of other unmissable events, from marquee high school and college football, to epic-scale concerts by superstar acts from One Direction to AC/DC to Taylor Swift.

And let’s face it—getting to and from the Meadowlands can get pretty complicated—especially if 50,000 people are trying to get there at the same time. So if you’re going to see some superstars in action, it can’t hurt to arrive like one.

2. Williamsburg Nightlife

By now, it’s fair to say that Williamsburg is all grown up. From its beginnings as a gritty industrial neighborhood to its second life as a hipster haunt, it’s fast becoming an upscale district with all the amenities to match, including the nightlife.

From clubs like Output and Verboten, to fine cocktail-drinking at Dram, to whiskey and grilled cheese (seriously) at Noorman’s Kil, Williamsburg has high-class partying options for everyone—and if you like your drinks cheaper and your atmosphere more unpretentious, there's still a few old-school dives like the Levee.

3. The Cloisters

There are any number of NYC museums and galleries where you might want to arrive in style, but the Cloisters stands out.

Opened in 1938, and built on Fort Tryon Park near the northern tip of Manhattan, the Cloisters is an arm of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Cloisters houses the Met’s medieval collection, displaying a trove of manuscripts, tapestries, crafts, and even recreated medieval gardens. Parts of the building itself are medieval, taken from cloisters in France and elsewhere and lovingly rebuilt in NYC.

The museum boasts an incredible view of the New Jersey Palisades, mostly because JP Morgan and John D Rockefeller bought huge stretches of the land across the river to preserve the view.

It’s a beautiful place to spend a day, and being a long way uptown, it’s also a little out of the way. So it’s a great place to arrive in style.

4. Chelsea Market

A foodies’ paradise, Chelsea Market offers a gourmet experience for every kind of food and drink imaginable, from from tacos to sushi to fish to fruit to espressos. You can shop for delicious ingredients or just find someone to cook them for you.

If you can also shop for fashion, books, or one-of-a-kind art and vintage treasures at Artists & Fleas. So if you’re in the mood to shop—or you arrive hungry—you’re likely to end up with more food and purchases than you can carry home on the subway.

5. Long Island City Boutique Hotels



Long Island City has quietly become a mecca for boutique hotels. The Ravel opened first in 2008, almost directly across from the 59th Street bridge. The Z Hotel and the quirky Paper Factory—in a carefully restored building that was actually a paper factory—soon followed.

LIC offers accommodation at innovative hotels, and at less-than-Manhattan prices. But above all, LIC hotels offer incredible views of midtown Manhattan. And while they’re only a few subway stops away from the Manhattan action, there’s nothing like arriving in a limo before settling down to a cocktail and a panoramic view.

If we can take you to any of these places—or anywhere else you want to go—don’t hesitate to reserve a limo.
