A1A Limo’s Top Five Travel Destinations
“Traveling enables us to see the world through the eyes of someone else,
and to understand their aspirations and assumptions.”
– John Kerry
In the frosty Northwest, you will experience things that you simply cannot in other destinations.
With a little determination and great planning skills, you can see moose within an hour of touching down in Anchorage. For this plan, time is of the essence and you don’t want risk getting lost.
If you book an airport shuttle before you leave home, you will save time hunting for a ride in an unknown territory after you land.
- Grab your luggage and ask your chauffeur to head straight to Point Woronzof Park—a short 3.5-mile drive away from the airport.
After you’ve seen enough moose, take a cruise or sightseeing flight to check out the glaciers.
You could go home a little bit richer if you strike it big while panning for Alaskan Gold.
The best time to visit Anchorage is from September to April when you can see the wondrous Northern Lights.
Traveling Out Of The Country?

Under the Aurora Bridge, in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood, sits the Fremont Troll—an 18-foot-tall statue crushing an equally giant cement VW Beetle in its fist.
Oxbow Park is home to the largest cowboy hat and boots in America, a piece of art that is aptly named,“Hat ‘n’ Boots.”
Though it has since lost its title, the iconic Space Needle was once the tallest structure West of the Mississippi River.
If you time your visit well, you can catch the most beautiful sunset over the Olympic Mountains from 175 feet above the water atop the Seattle Great Wheel.
