• Don’t Make These Transportation Mistakes at Your Wedding

    Wedding Transportation

    Your wedding is one of the most special days of your life. It should be memorable for all the right reasons. Extensive planning is required to make your wedding meet your expectations. During the wedding planning process, couples often put the focus on selecting the venue, cake, and flowers. But don’t forget about transportation! Wedding transportation is among the most crucial ingredients for making your special day a success.

    Mistake: Hiring a small limo service.

    It’s customary for the bride and groom to arrive and depart in a classic limousine. That’s why many couples make the mistake of contracting with a small, local limo service instead of a larger transportation company. When you choose a comprehensive transportation company instead, you’ll get a full spectrum of services. Larger transportation companies are adept at handling the logistics of special events. Plus, they’ll have a fleet of vehicles to choose from.

    Mistake: Forgetting to make arrangements for out-of-town guests.

    Ultimately, it’s the responsibility of each out-of-town guest to make arrangements for getting to the wedding. But let’s face it: It isn’t easy for guests to travel long distances for special events. That’s why it’s courteous for the bride and groom to give them a helping hand. Talk to the transportation company about arranging airport pickups to bring your guests to their hotel ahead of the wedding.

    Mistake: Neglecting to book a shuttle service between venues.

    Many couples get married in one location and hold the reception in another. This can create problems for the guests, who may have trouble navigating the streets of an unfamiliar city. Consider booking a charter bus or mini bus to act as a shuttle service for your guests. They’ll love the red carpet service!

    You can count on the team at Haymarket Transportation to help your wedding proceed without a hitch! To discuss booking our limos in the Washington, D.C. area and beyond, give us a call at (301) 778-2007. Our fleet also boasts luxury charter buses, SUVs, vans, and sedans, all driven by professional chauffeurs.

  • Planning a Visit to Jamestown

    Voyage To Jamestown

    More than a decade before the Pilgrims made landfall in Massachusetts, America’s first permanent colony was founded by the English at Jamestown, Virginia. The date of the settlement was April 1607. The first inhabitants of Jamestown chose a promising area for their colony, but soon faced considerable problems. You can learn all about them when you make your own voyage to Jamestown. While you’re planning your trip, consider booking transportation through an educational tour company.

    Historic Jamestowne

    You can see the site of the original settlement at Historic Jamestowne. The area is still under an active archaeological dig, and your group can visit! Check out the interactive map of discoveries, including the latest artifacts found in the area. It can help you narrow down exactly which sites you’d like to visit here. Kids in particular love to watch ongoing excavations and ask questions of the archaeologists as they work. There are lots of scheduled activities and programs, so be sure to check out the website as you plan your visit. You should also set aside time for the Visitor Center, which exhibits more than 1,000 artifacts and has an informative film that introduces the history of the region. If those 1,000-plus artifacts weren’t enough, stop by the Nathalie P. & Alan M. Voorhees Archaearium—an award-winning museum with more than 4,000 artifacts!

    Jamestown Settlement

    After your stop at Historic Jamestown, swing by the Jamestown Settlement. It provides an immersive experience into the world of the colonists. There are year-round exhibits and events at this living history museum. Watch the introductory film in the museum theater and tour the extensive gallery exhibits. Then, tour the grounds outdoors and check out the historical interpreters. They explain life during the 1600s. Visit the Powhatan Indian Village to explore the culture of the original inhabitants of the area. Then, stop by the re-created James Fort and the re-creation of one of the ships that brought the colonists to Virginia’s shores.
