Las Vegas Car Rental
Although it is easy to get around Las Vegas without a car, renting a car can be more convenient and makes it easier to access all of the attractions and casinos. In addition, those who want to visit nearby attractions or want to explore Las Vegas and Los Angeles in one trip should look into renting a car. Indeed, there are a number of fantastic attractions within driving distance from Las Vegas such as the Grand Canyon, the Mojave Desert and the Hoover Dam.
In order to hire a car while on vacation in Las Vegas, you will need to be over 21 and have a valid driving license. However, a number of major car rental companies require drivers to be at least 25 years of age
If you are on a budget or want to save some of your holiday money for the casinos, check out the accommodation in downtown Las Vegas. While the accommodation here may not replicate ancient Greece or ancient Egypt, it is comfortable and affordable.
Major international car rental companies have a strong presence in Las Vegas such as Avis, Hertz and Alama. In order to get the best deal on your car rental, you should book your car at least a week in advance. In addition, you should look out for special offers and discounts. Indeed, some companies will offer you discounted car rental if you are part of the AAA or are part of a frequent flyer program.
If you do your research and book in advance, it is relatively easy to rent a car for less than $30 a day. However, if you are visiting during a convention or booking your car rental last minute expect sky-high rates as supply dwindles. One of the best places to arrange a rental car is at the airport as there is plenty of competition and high demand for rental cars. Indeed, renting from an airport-based company is significantly cheaper than opting for a rental from a local company on Las Vegas Boulevard.
Top Things to do in Las Vegas
Young couples have been heading to Vegas for years to take advantage of the more relaxed regulations regarding both marriage and divorce. Unlike many other states, Nevada does not require any waiting period to pass between application for a marriage license and the ceremony being performed: licenses can be purchased up until midnight every night. Divorces too are easily acquired with little waiting time and no proof of reason for the disillusion of the marriage being required.
Vegas is also well known for fantastic entertainments: from lounge singers to cabaret acts to illusionists and magicians to strip bars, there is something for everyone! Internationally famous artists such as Tom Jones, David Copperfield, Prince, Penn and Teller and even the legendary Elvis Presley – to mention but a few – have all headlined at Vegas at one time or another.
Of course, there is another side to Las Vegas, the side that has given rise to the tag-line ‘What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.’ I am, of course, referring to the sensual world of adult entertainment, featuring strippers, pole dancers, exotic dancers and burlesque shows. While many people visit Las Vegas with their families, seeing the sights and enjoying the PG-rated attractions, many more visit to glimpse the more titillating side of life – sometimes even combining the visit with a wedding, using their stag party or hen night as an excuse to see all that the city has to offer!
Gambling is the lifeblood of the city, and it is also the main reason for the millions of visitors every year! The city caters for the avid gambler with slot machines in every possible space, from hotel lobbies to airports to toilets. There are establishments for every pocket too, with seriously expensive tables for those with the cash to spare and more modest stakes for those just looking to raise their pulse a little.
