It’s time to start locking down your New Year’s Eve plans. If you want to say farewell to 2010 and start 2011 with a bang, rent a limo party bus for all of your friends to take out on the town in NYC. The limo party buses can accommodate up to 50 passengers and with that many people, you know anywhere you go will be a party.

Whether you live in the city or a few hours away, a limo party bus is the best way to go out with a large group and make sure everyone stays together throughout the night and gets home safe. If you live a few hours out of the city, a limo party bus allows you and your friends to get the party started before you even arrive to your destination.

If the number of people in your group going out for New Years looks more like 25, you can rent a Hummer limo instead of a party bus. If you’re a going out with a group of girls, the pink Hummer limo is a great choice and will definitely grab the attention of other New Year’s party-goers. However, if pink is not your color there is also a white or yellow Hummer limo available.

Once you have your group gathered, make reservations at a hip and trendy New York City restaurant and have dinner and cocktails at 7pm. After dinner, have your limo take you to one of the many bars or clubs hosting New Year’s Eve parties until midnight when you can watch the ball drop in Times Square. Many bars are open for after hour parties, so you can stay out all night or opt to go home before dawn. Either way, your limo party bus will be there to make sure everyone in your group gets home safe. Start planning your New Year’s Eve today, make a reservation with Five Towns Limo and have a fun and safe New Year!

Many of them are holiday themed and are a sight to see without even entering the store. Famous New York City stores like Henri Bendel, Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys all participate in this enchanting tradition. The best way to see them all in one day is to hire a limousine service. You can drink champagne in the company of friends and admire the festive displays without braving the chilly weather. Here are the top displays you need to visit.

Barneys: 660 Madison Ave between 60th and 61st Streets. Each window is a totally different scene. Our favorite is a woman decorating a Christmas tree made of gift bags. It’s a perfect mix of sparkling silver and bold red colors will surely get you in the Christmas spirit.

Lord & Taylor: 424 Fifth Ave at 39th Street. These window displays are miniature doll-house scenes of New York City. If you look closely in the windows of your town houses, you’ll see a holiday party taking place, decorating of a Christmas tree and more. This charming display is a must-see.

Bergdorf Goodman: 754 Fifth Ave at 58th Streets. The Bergdorf holiday displays are full of intricate details that you have to experience for yourself. The scenes range from sailors, to a train station and each is full of personality, colors and details that you have to see to believe.
