Things to do near Baton Rouge – Downtown
Riverside Limousine Service serves many local companies, national affiliates and individuals. We provide limousine and town car service to Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (BTR). If it is the passenger's first visit to the capital city and they are interested our professional chauffeurs enjoy pointing out interesting and historical sites along the way to their destination. Baton Rouge is a beautiful city with many points of interest.
When visitors ask what there is to do in the city our answers often gravitate to night life and after hours events. Downtown has transformed in recent years. There are dozens of local bars, restaurants, venues and nightclubs. In the past decade Downtown Baton Rouge has been developed into a popular entertainment district. Third Street, once the city's shopping district (until malls opened in the late 50's) has been revived. Other areas where nightlife can be found include: Highland Road north of LSU, Corporate at College, Perkins between College and the overpass, Town Center and South Sherwood.
For the business traveler with an hour available during the daytime there are also historical sites that highlight our legacy and teach visitors our history.
LOUISIANA STATE CAPITOL:
The capitol and surrounding grounds are majestic and awe inspiring. We suggest visitors begin by walking the grounds in front of the capitol building. Well maintained gardens surround the tomb of Huey Long, Louisiana governor, senator and one of our most famous citizens.
To the east of the capitol is the Old Arsenal Museum. Built in 1835 partly in response to the (War of 1812) to store munitions it now houses an interpretive history of the area. On the grounds there are cannons which were positioned to protect the arsenal from attack from the Mississippi River.
The capitol building it self is open for visitors to tour. Construction of the Louisiana State Capitol building was approved by a special session of the legislature in 1931 and completed in 14 months. It cost $5 million. An additional million was spent on art. The steps to the entrance are inscribed with the states and their date of statehood.
A self guided tour is available at the information desk. The view of Baton Rouge from the observation deck on the 27th floor is a favorite experience.
The Governor's Mansion was built in 1963 during the term of Governor Jimmy Davis. Tours of the mansion require scheduling.
OLD STATE CAPITOL:
The Old State Capitol was built in 1847 on a parcel of land donated by the city of Baton Rouge. The capitol was moved to Baton Rouge due to concerns that New Orleans would have too much influence over state governnment. At that time New Orleans was the 4th largest city in the United States.
During the Civil War the building was abandoned when Union forces captured the city. It was used as a barracks and suffered two fires which gutted the building. There is a self-guided video tour available.
THE OLD GOVERNOR'S MANSION:
The Old Governor's Mansion was built in 1929 by Huey Long. Today it is home for the
Foundation for a Historic Louisiana and available for special events. For many years it was the home of the Louisiana Arts and Science Center.
If you have 60 minutes these historic sites are just a few of the interesting places available for a visit. They are within easy walking distance from downtown hotels or our professional chauffeur can pick you up and wait close by to take you to your next appointment.
You're here – take a break and don't miss your chance to see interesting sites or you can wait in the airport lounge. You are in Louisiana - “Pick Your Passion!”
Traveling from Baton Rouge to LFT:
The trip from Baton Rouge to Lafayette by a Baton Rouge limousine service takes about an hour and thirty minutes depending on the actual address and traffic.
The interstate highway from Baton Rouge to Lafayette crosses one of the most unique and interesting natural areas in the United States – the Atchafalaya Basin. From your window you will seek densely wooded swamp, muddy rivers, bayous, cypress studded lakes and levees. The raised highway cuts across a magnificent, diverse ecosystem.
Along the way there are many opportunities for swamp tours. If you have 3 hours, Magees Landing near Henderson is a popular destination. There are several other tour providers there also. When the boat stops alligators swim up close to be fed by the tour guide. This is only a snack for them – keep your hands in the boat.
Typically the guides grew up in the area. Their personal stories and swamp lore will give you something to remember and talk about when you get home. They tell of big fish caught, the local birds, cutting of the cypress forest and raw materials from the swamp supplied to industry. Hear stories of swamp lore from local guides and see wildlife in their natural setting.
There are numerous well known seafood restaurants at most exits specializing in crawfish, crab, shrimp and fish fixed “cajun” style. So sit down, relax, enjoy the scenic bayou view.
Butte La Rose:
But if you have only have 60 minutes or less – stop at the Butte La Rose Rest Area.
This rest area is on a ridge in the middle of the swamp. Once off the interstate a 2 lane highway follows the levee to small communities to the north and south. As you turn into the parking area you see what looks like a house with a wide porch furnished with rocking chairs. If you have time, sit and rock a while after you get a cup of fresh coffee.
Inside you'll be greeted and offered coffee by a very friendly staff, eager to answer your questions. This wonderful coffee has been roasted by Community Coffee since 1919 (four generations of the Saurage family). It was named “Community Coffee” after Cap Saurage's community of friends who enjoyed his great tasting brew. Locally it is the preferred choice!
Butte LaRose has a public boat launch. It is a heavily used put-in point for basin fishermen. A quick conversation with people launching or pulling out boats will give you a real sense of what the swamp has to offer.
Behind the big house is a small and beautiful garden. Statues of alligators, swamp birds and turtles present a local theme. Benches along the surrounding boardwalk offer peaceful places to sit and relax. It is a rest area after all.
Inside there are several exhibits. Each exhibit has a different theme. One focuses on the animals and ecosystem of this vast watershed. Another outlines it's history and the people who have populated the swamp over the centuries. There is a 4 minute video that tell about the area and gives insights about the life and traditions of the local Cajun culture.
There is also a “geo cache” located about ½ mile from this rest area along the Indian Bayou Recreation Area. It is an easy walk.
Along the way there are other places that invite you to visit. In the area there are many local specialty meat smokehouses. Try some boudin (spicy pork and rice sausage) or pork cracklin's. Pick up some pralines or Community Coffee for your family back home.
Pick Your Passion:
The Louisiana state motto is “pick your passion.” We have a lot of options. From food, to stories, music there are so many options. So, take a little time from business travel and take home memories for a life time.
Things To Do Near Baton Rouge - In Less Than 60 Minutes
One of the great benefits of using a car service is that it makes having fun while on business so easy. Once your business is complete you put your luggage in the vehicle and we take you to what you want to see, standby, then take you to the airport. If you are traveling in a group our mini-bus' or Sprinter limousine can accommodate groups ranging from 10 to 24.

If you are in Baton Rouge going to BTR and have 90 minutes available there are several dozen interesting and noteworthy places to visit. Our city is home to 2 great universities each with noteworthy sites.
SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY SITES:
Southern University located on the north side of Baton Rouge is very close to the Baton Rouge Airport.
Three attractions stand out – the Southern University Museum of Art and the fantastic view of the Mississippi River from the campus. On your way into campus be sure to visit "Lacumba" the Jaguar - Southern's mascot.
The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday at 10:00 am. The Southern University Museum of Art offers 8 galleries with historical artifacts and African American Art. The museum is listed on the African American Heritage Trail. In the statue gallery artifacts from the Underground Railroad are also on display.
Southern University is located on the Mississippi. From the Scott's Bluff observation point you can get a panoramic view up and down river.
LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY SITES:
The LSU campus is home to a variety of noteworthy sites from famous (and feared) sports stadiums to academic halls and historic facilities.
On the River Road, near the Veterinary School there is a great access to the Mississippi River Levee. If you want to walk, the top of the levee is a paved pathway busy with pedestrian traffic. The levee is a great place to fly a kite. From the levee you can walk down to the bank of the river. Or you can sit on the benches and watch people, barges, birds and livestock.
Going into the campus from the river will take you by Alex Box Stadium, home of the LSU Baseball Team. When you reach Nicholson Drive you will be at Tiger Stadium or Death Valley as it is known to visiting teams. If you take North Stadium Drive across the street from the football stadium, Bernie Moore Track Stadium and the Maravich Assembly Center are across the street.
Nestled in between all three is the home of Mike the Tiger, LSU's mascot. His home has transitioned over the past 30 years into a very nice home. Close to Mike's cage is the LSU gift store where you can purchase the appropriate 'Tiger' memorabilia.
As you drive from the “state of the art” sport complexes you will begin to notice the well maintained live oaks that dominate the landscape. Live oaks are the foundation of the campus' southern charm. Also on the campus are two ancient Indian burial mounds and several museums.
The center of campus is dominated by academic buildings dedicated to the various colleges that make up the university. When you reach Highland Road you will get a great view of the Parade Grounds – a reminder that LSU was originally a military college. On Highland Road across from the Parade Grounds is the LSU Law Center. Continuing on Dalrymple Drive you pass fraternity and sorority houses. On the north east side of campus is a series of beautiful, scenic lakes. Merge onto I-10 and you will be at BTR in 10 minutes.
Using our professionally chauffeured limousine services means visitors can get a taste of Baton Rouge and get to the airport on time too.
Things to do near Baton Rouge #2
“Things to do near Baton Rouge – Try Ziplining.” was written for business travelers. The point of that blog was - you have traveled so far to get here – have some fun before you leave. A few weeks after that blog was posted a business client wanted to just that (but he hadn't read the blog). He wanted to fill a two hour window with a visit to a neighborhood that shared his last name, just upriver from the French Quarter. His appointment ended at 1:15 pm in Baton Rouge. His flight didn't leave MSY until 5:45 pm. That gave him a 2 hours to see the sights. He was able to participate in a phone conference meeting from BR to NO, sight see the neighborhood, visit Dr. Bob's Art Shop and get to the airport in the comfort of a chauffeured sedan.
Dr. Bob's Art Shop:
Located just up river from the French Quarter in the Bywater neighborhood, Dr. Bob's Art Shop (known for his “Be Nice or Leave” signs) is a local treasure that is the home of a local treasure. In addition to the art with a local flavor visitors can hear stories about a historical sporting event – John L. Sullivan vs Gentleman Jim Corbert 1892 fought where the parking lot for this business is now, events related to Hurricane Katrina, the transition of the neighborhood from rough to gentrified and tidbits about movies filmed next door.
Bywater is a old New Orleans residential neighborhood just up river from the French Quarter. It is on a ridge that is only slightly higher that the surrounding areas and is been referred to as the “sliver by the river.” When areas around Bywater flooded due to Katrina it was the popular route out.
This colorful area that has seen lots of change in the past 3 decades. Driving into Bywater via St. Claude travelers pass a colorfully painted old mini-bus. Behind this building by the railroad tracks tents roost in the trees. I think the tree house tents define the unique character of the neighborhood - artsy, quirky, interesting.
Paco's Flying Burritos:
While in New Orleans for the 2013 Super Bowl I enjoyed grilled shrimp tacos and Paco's Flying Burritos on Magazine Street. Good food, friendly service, good prices. The only challenge for travelers would normally be parking. That's where limousine service come's in handy. We drive – you have fun!
If you have a 90 minute window in your trip to the New Orleans airport it's enough time to make a unique lifetime memory.
Home of the “Original Muffaletta” the Central Grocery on Decatur Street is a New Orleans institution. Once while shopping in the smells of spice, spicy foods and dried cod, a fellow shopper said it was a better Italian market than what he found while in Italy. A muffaletta is huge combination of meat, cheese and olive salad on a crusty bun - plenty for two or even four, best eaten with a Barq's Root Beer. Customers often get several to go and spread the joy when they get home.
Walking the Quarter:
On another recent trip two clients were catching a flight to Los Angeles. One had a short meeting in N.O. The other had 1 hour and wanted to walk the quarter. After dropping the latter near the old New Orleans Mint, I found a place to wait for the call to pick up. The first passenger finished his meeting and enjoy a walk to Cafe du Monde where the 2nd client met us and we continued to the airport. An hour is plenty of time to get a taste of the Quarter.
Spend 4 Hours Having Fun!
Our airport transfer clients from the Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Lafayette airports are often in one day and out the next. These airports are not in hub cities so there are limited "direct flights" and your schedule may give you 4 or 5 hours of open time to develop some local rapport. Our limo service can make sure you enjoy yourself and stay on schedule.
At a recent association meeting one of the members told of his recent experience zip lining at Tiki Zipline. His story really stuck with me and I reflected on how many business travelers I transport come in and leave without that special connection without enjoying the “local flavor” the Baton Rouge area provides. When I chauffered in Memphis we frequently took visitors to Graceland. While we aren't the home of "rock 'n roll" there are many fun things to do near Baton Rouge.
There are numerous opportunities to enjoy a short refreshing change of pace around Louisiana's capitol city. At Tiki Zipline near Denham Springs, secured in a harnass, you'll fly through the air and surrounding woods. The nine station course takes about an hour and a half. It's a great team building opportunity if a group is traveling. You should reserve a time, wear casual clothes and if doing this "on the way to the airport" block 5 hours. Riverside can transport individuals or groups up to 24 people with luggage in our sedans, SUV's or Mini-Bus.
Another item on your list of things to do near Baton Rouge should be visiting at least one of our historic plantation homes. At well restored and maintained locations like Houmas House, Oak Alley, Laura Plantation or Nottaway visitors can get a feel of what the Old South was like and learn what is unique about these settings. If you allow 4 hours before the required airport check in time you will have time to take a tour, stroll the grounds and get to the airport in time.
The State Capitol, Old State Capitol, Old Governor's Mansion, Louisiana Arts and Science Center and Magnolia Mound Plantation are great things to do in Baton Rouge. Close to downtown hotels, some of these sites are within walking distance. Being driven in a chauffeured sedan gives you the option of driving by or stopping to take a tour.
Between Baton Rouge and the New Orleans or Lafayette airports there are several outstanding swamp tour opportunities. Remember, these are swamp tours and dress comfortably. These tours take you up close to see alligators and many other swamp creatures. In addition, the often "colorful characters" that lead these tours share the areas back story and history. These tours are on most people's "A List" of things to do near Baton Rouge. Off the interstate between Baton Rouge and the New Orleans airport, Cajun Pride Swamp Tours offers a variety of options.
Going west, McGees Landing is in the Atchafalaya Basin between Baton Rouge and Lafayette. And, being on the route to the airport makes them easily accessible.
Close to the interstate in south Baton Rouge is a well hidden gem, the Bluebonnet Swamp www.brec.org/swamp. The swamp is home to a variety of wildlife and a great location for bird watching. It's hard to believe you are in the city limits.
If you have more time available, travel north of Baton Rouge to the the Feliciana Parishes. Towns like St. Francisville, Jackson and Clinton are home to an array of plantation homes. They are also great places for bird watching and enjoying nature.
Pick Your Passion
Brochures on all these sites are usually available at your hotel. So when you get a chance to visit our city, pick your passion and enjoy one of the many things to do near Baton Rouge.
A Mini-Bus Might be Your Best Choice!
Riverside Limousine's vehicles are reserved for many different occasions and reasons. Sometimes it's for the elegance. Sometimes it's for safety. Sometimes it's so the host can focus full attention on their guests without the distractions of driving. Whatever your reason, consider the added comfort offered by our mini-buses.
Some Things are Standard:
No matter the event it's Riverside's standard practice to arrive early so you can start on time. Sometimes our arrival gets things moving. It also gives you time to arrange refreshments on board or discuss last minute details with the chauffeur.
Business' find mini-buses useful for entertaining, road shows, plant tours and on-site event shuttles. Passengers can safely leave their belonging on-board when there are multiple stops. If the passengers need to go from the event to the airport - luggage it can be stored on-board.
Flat Screen & DVD player
- are available in some vehicles and can be used to support business activities.
After celebratory events like holiday office parties each person can be dropped at their home for added safety and convenience.
Weddings, Entertainment and Proms:
The super stretch limousine is an iconic luxury vehicle that exudes “life styles of the rich and famous.” Most familiar is an 8 passenger (usually marketed as a 10 passenger). They really stand out and people take notice. But is it the best choice for your event? If the most important objective is to be noticed a stretch sedan or SUV may be the way to go. However, for comfort, ease of entry and exit, larger groups, flexibility and more fun options - a mini bus or limo bus may be the best choice.
Passengers in gowns, costumes, long dresses and short dresses find entry and exit much more gracious. Those with packages, bags and boxes appreciate a place to leave those items during an event. Parents with small children like having a little more room.
Most mini-buses will have features similar to those in limousines and more.
Room for 10 to 24 passengers
Stand up entry and exit
Bus or Limo style seating
Space for ice chests
Space to move around
Storage space in rear for luggage, packages and clothes
Using mini buses can also allow the family and wedding party to start the celebration in route to the reception. The time together allows them to relax from the stress of the ceremony and transition into fun – safely. Toasts of appreciation can be made to the attendants while in route. Once they arrive at the venue they can easily and elegantly exit the vehicle at the door step. It's a great option whether the reception is a block away or an hour away.
There never seems to be enough time to visit with family and friends. Riding together allows for time to visit with friends who are seldom in town. A spacious mini-bus provides a living room atmosphere and allows for face to face conversations.
Easier on old hips & knees
Easier to move around and visit
Can have refreshments on board
Can show “memories” DVD
For Your Event A Chauffeured Mini-Bus May Be Your Best Choice!
In addition to the comfort of a mini-bus having a chauffeur provides additional benefits. Every vehicle has different features and options – Be sure to confirm that the vehicle you choose offer the features you want.
If you value comfort and flexibility a Mini-bus for Riverside Limousines may be your best choice.
Early one morning I had a pick up for airport transfer. Using the information on the trip sheet I confirmed, double checked and checked again that I was at the correct street address. The client was no where to be seen. The townhouses didn't have individual address numbers and the client wasn't outside looking for me. At 5 o'clock in the morning this is a stressful situation. Without the right information it could end up in a missed flight and ruined day aka “service disaster”.
Fortunately the client's personal contact number was on the trip sheet. I called. The client talked me to the correct location (which was a block away from the listed address – separated by a fence, strip shopping center and parking lot). Once in the car the client remarked, “aren't cell phones a wonderful thing.”
Chauffeurs don't have ESP (extra sensory perception) … we are ESP (experienced service professionals) and experienced problem solvers. While chauffeurs often have to fill in the information gaps, having the right information at our fingertips to insure successful service is better. It's a customer service win-win-win!
Thorough Communication Leads to High Quality Service
Communication that leads to exceptional service starts when the trip is booked. In addition to the essentials:
who (passengers name)
what (vehicle type)
when (pick up time)
where (pick up address)
added details like:
a personal contact phone number for the passenger
the type of event for which the service is needed
the name of the person in charge of a group of passengers
… go a long way toward making the engagement excellent.
Sometimes address numbers are non-existent or hard to see it's helpful to know:
the business name
office building name.
For multistage events (tours, weddings, funerals):
… are all helpful.
Advance Information Supports Safety
Using the information provided on trip sheets chauffeurs plan their service. They compile directions, review maps, do drive-by's on unfamiliar destinations, prep the car, and add special touches based on the information they have. While chauffeurs are familiar with the service area, they haven't been to every church, restaurant, venue or business.
When the service is scheduled “as directed” it is best to communicate the destination before leaving the pick up. This will reduce “distracted driving.” Even if the final agenda isn't set in concrete an overview of the client's plan is helpful. Aren't absolutely sure of the agenda? Don't worry – chauffeurs are used to changes.
The Pick Up is a Second Chance to Provide the Information
On a recent assignment for a FBO pick up the information on my trip sheet had special instructions detailing where the client was to be picked up. When he disembarked his plane he gave me an overview of his plan -- where we were going, how long we would be there and what contacts needed to be made. I gave him my cell phone number. As the trip went on he continued to provide updates. He asked about local attractions – I provided brochures. He told me ahead of time where he wanted to go. While waiting I did a drive by to familiarize myself with the location and optional routes. He was thorough and I was thankful. The assignment was a win-win-win.
At the Pick Up
At the pick up the chauffeur will:
confirm you are the scheduled passenger
if providing service beyond a transfer give you their cell number
confirm your destination
ask if there are any stops that need to be made.
Thorough Communication Essential for High Quality Customer Service:
Providing high quality customer service is the desire of every professional chauffeur. Communication is important to accomplishing this goal.
Our clients assume we have their safety in mind. We do! Our chauffeurs plan ahead, think ahead, and look ahead for potential safety concerns. This applies not only to navigating streets and highways but, also to embarking and disembarking passengers.
Your chauffeur may see what you don't see -
Professional chauffeurs act with purpose to make certain you safely enter and exit the vehicle. A safe exit starts as the limousine approaches the drop off location. To the greatest extent realistically possible, they position the car so you exit from the right side (passenger side – curb side on a two way street.) Under some circumstances, such as one way streets this isn't possible. Whatever the circumstances, they will make sure you can safely exit the vehicle.
Your driver will take note of sign posts, mailboxes, puddles, debris or high curbs as they pull up. The location and other vehicles may affect how close to the curb they can safely park. A high curb may obstruct the door or be a tripping hazard. It starts with opening the door. After stopping and putting the vehicle in park, the chauffeur will be outside the curbside door as soon as possible to assist passengers.
Wait for the chauffeur -
The first safety tip is “wait for the chauffeur to open the door.” Your chauffeur is trained to provide service that underlies safety. They will be in position to open your door as quickly as safely possible. They will watch traffic - vehicular and pedestrian. They will be in position to hold items so you have your hands free. They will be there to offer you a hand as you stand.
Entering and exiting some vehicles, especially stretched sedans and SUVs with limo style seating, is different from the cars in which we usually ride. Inexperienced passengers aren't used to the position they are in. Often they “duck walk” due to the low ceiling and then get to the door like a sky diver. A moments distraction leads to bumping their head, unsteady footing or unflattering exposure.
Exit the vehicle slowly -
Second, slow down for safety. Often there are other passengers riding with you. You may have been engrossed in conversation and not paying attention to what is going on outside the vehicle. The chauffeur has been observing the environment during the arrival. If you are entering the vehicle you may need a second to orient yourself to the location of interior features. The chauffeur at the door will slow down the entry of others until the previous passenger is safely seated.
“Sit, Twist and Slide” -
The third tip is “Sit, Twist and Slide.” The first passengers to enter should take seats toward the front of the vehicle. To do this safely and with grace – Sit, Twist and Slide. At the door, face away from the vehicle and sit on the back seat. Once seated, twist and bring your legs into the vehicle. Then slide over to the spot selected for you to ride. Exiting is just the reverse. Slide to the seat at the exit door, Twist to move your feet to the ground. Then stand. Using this technique is definitely safer and more elegant than exiting like a “paratrooper.” It's also safer for passengers in long dresses or costumes and more discrete for those with short skirts. The chauffeur will be at the door to offer a hand for balance and to assist your exit.
Finally, select the best vehicle for your group. Stretch limos offer style and intimacy for four to eight passengers. If your group is larger, consider our party buses. Party and Shuttle buses provide easier entry, standing to move around, and depending on the group size may cost less per passenger. Two different seating styles, limo or bus, allow you to match the vehicle with your event.
Service is the foundation for Safety -
Remember, the service professional chauffeurs offer is the foundation for safe transportation. We want your experience with Riverside Limousines to be wonderful!
Oh, yeah! The dog days of summer are here. While it's easy to want nothing more than to stay indoors sitting next to an AC, we know that's not always a possibility...or even the healthiest thing to do.
Which is why we thought we'd share some of the fun summer finds that caught our attention from the "225 Things to Do In An Around Baton Rouge" list from VisitBatonRouge.com.
Of course, you can add an extra dose of fun to these outings by getting a whole group of family and friends together and booking one of our luxury shuttle buses. And YES -- they are, of course, air conditioned. You'll always travel in comfort when you choose Riverside. :)
Summer Fun in Baton Rouge: 5 Ideas
1. Red Stick Farmers' Market. Nothing says summer like a farmers' market. What's cool about this one is that it's open year round on Saturday mornings from 8 to noon, rain or shine. Stop by this summer for some of the freshest produce around and cook up a yummy lunch or dinner that's 100 percent Baton Rouge.
2. Highland Road Park Observatory. Who doesn't love star gazing this time of year? This is an especially fun outing if you have kids -- inspire their inner astronomers at the Highland Road Park Observatory. Best part? As the website notes, admission is "generally free." (Some programs may have a nominal fee.)
3. Tiki Tubing. Think you can't beat the Louisiana heat? Think again and try tubing. It's a fun way to spend a hot summer's day. (Another great option for kids or a large group.)
4. The Louisiana State Capitol Building. Looking for a more educational excursion steeped in history? Tour the Louisiana State Capitol Building. Be sure to stop by the Old Arsenal Museum while you're there.
5. LSU Museum of Art. Have a side of culture with your air conditioning. The LSU Museum of Art is a great way to spend an afternoon or weekend. There are always different programs coming up and lots of delish dining options to make it a fun escape from the daily grind.
What are some ways that you beat the Louisiana heat? Be sure to like us on Facebook and share your ideas there.
And, as always, let us know how we can serve you during these hot summer months. Whether it's airport transportation, safe rides for a fun night out, a group outing to New Orleans (or elsewhere), we can help. Contact Riverside Limousines now.
We love it when movies feature limousines and chauffeurs. Whether it's the fun-loving (and oblivious) Argyle in the first Die Hard movie or the limousine scene with Richard Gere hanging out of the moonroof at the end of Pretty Woman, it's fun to see how filmmakers use limos and luxury car services in their work.
Here's another film that we especially love. It's a remake of the famous Audrey Hepburn and Bogie classic: Sabrina. In this version, Harrison Ford plays the Humphrey Bogart role and Julia Ormand plays the Hepburn role. Sabrina, of course, is the chauffeur's daughter, and she causes lots of trouble when she shows up "all grown up" and in love with one of the Larrabee boys.
We're embedding the trailer below, and you'll spy a couple of glimpses of the chauffeur and the car he drives the Larrabees around in. What you won't see in the trailer, however, is the reason why the chauffeur became a chauffeur. You'll just have to watch the movie now, won't you? (Hint: it has to do with books! Oh, and the chauffeur isn't as "simple" as he might seem -- another reason we love this film.)
