"He was a pleasant guy, kinda reserved, and he followed the route I recommended to LAX. Although I'm usually on edge taking cabs, I felt comfortable because he didn't seem to be stalling or running the meter. I believe his name is Raffi.
Good experience. I would use Yellow Cab again...." Entire review...
There are countless ways to spend your time in downtown Santa Monica no matter what time of day it is. Sometimes, however, driving is simply not an option. If you want to get to downtown Santa Monica, back and forth between the shopping districts, and safely back home, you will need to figure out transportation. Here are just a few ways LA Yellow Cab can simplify your trip to downtown Santa Monica:
Avoid Parking Issues
Parking is an issue in just about every beach city in Southern California, and Santa Monica is no exception. If you head down to the Promenade during the day, you may be able to snag a spot after a thorough search. Don’t expect to stay past 6:00 p.m., though. This is when many downtown streets require residential parking permits, and tickets are incredibly common. Taking a cab solves these issues easily.
Give Your Feet a Break
Downtown Santa Monica may be pretty walkable, but that does not mean everybody wants to schlep all over the place. Even a few blocks can be tiring, so you may want to call Yellow Cab if you have plans in multiple locations. If you want to grab some seafood on the Promenade and then drinks down on Pico and 23rd, cut yourself some slack and call a taxi service.
Get Home Safely
Many of the fun places downtown are bars and clubs. Since even a drink or two could put you at risk for a DUI—or worse, a terrible accident—it’s always smart to have someone else drive after a night out. When you call Yellow Cab, everybody in your group gets to relax and have a good time instead of worrying about being the designated driver.
When you need a ride in Santa Monica or anywhere else in the Los Angeles area, give LA Yellow Cab a call at (310) 817-6823. We have the largest fleet in the LA area and offer the fastest service. Give us a try on your night out!
Venice Beach is a popular destination for both LA-area locals and well-traveled tourists. As beautiful as the area is during the day, it can be just as fun at night. After an afternoon on the beach and an evening out on the town, people tend to get pretty hungry. If you’re looking for a place to eat when you’re out late in Venice Beach, take a look at these tasty options:
Located right on the boardwalk, Venice Bistro is a fun and casual lounge that serves drinks and a combination of Mexican and American food all day from noon until close. You can come right off the beach and grab something to eat, even after most restaurants have closed.
La Cabaña Restaurant
La Cabaña is a Mexican restaurant with a 50-year history in Venice. The dishes served here are prepared from authentic recipes from all over Mexico. Aside from the history and authenticity, what sets this restaurant apart is the fact that it stays open until 3:00 a.m. every night. Anyone who has spent time Southern California knows that nothing tastes better after a night out than good Mexican food.
If you’re out late, hungry, and in the mood for a fun, retro atmosphere, check out Café 50’s on Lincoln Boulevard. This quirky diner has a 1950s theme, a great menu, and a reputation for excellent service. If you’re on a family vacation, this is definitely the place to bring the kids. Café 50’s is open until 11:00 p.m., so you can get the food you’re craving long after dark.
After a night out, the smart choice is to call a cab for a ride home or to your favorite eatery. LA Yellow Cab operates the largest fleet in the Los Angeles area and regularly provides the fastest service. To arrange a pickup, call us at (310) 817-6823.
