Shrine, where you can find out more about the history of the country and its presidents.
Los Angeles is known as the ‘City of Angels’ and is probably one of the most famous,
and at the same time, infamous cities in the world. Many actors and musicians flock
here every year with the hope of being ‘discovered’ in Hollywood, which a district
of the city. Such is the draw of Los Angeles; many of the worlds rich and famous
live out in its opulent suburbs, such as Beverly Hills. In order to take all this
in, why not use your hire car to cruise down Sunset Boulevard, watch a show at the
Hollywood bowl or watch Baseball at the Dodgers stadium?

The Great Outdoors
America has many natural attractions for you to take in across the country, so when
planning a city break, remember to book a hire car, as it will make travelling about
much easier. Here are a few examples of what America has to offer.
Yellowstone National Park is the state of Wyoming’s star attraction and was the
first national park in America. Thirty thousand visitors are attracted to the park
daily and feature everything from Giant Moose to half the world’s geysers. Why not
take a long hike amongst the fossil forests and wildlife?
When in California, why not get your hire car and drive the Big Sur. It is a 90
mile long dual lane highway winding along the coast from Carmel to San Simeon. Allow
four hours to complete it as you will be waylaid by the breath taking views and
state parks along the road. Make sure that you do not travel by night due to the
perilous nature of the road in the dark, plus you won’t see the scenery!
For truly awe-inspiring views, take you hire car to the Grand Canyon National park,
which contains 277 miles of the Colorado River, that has carved out the canyon for
six million years. It is though that some of the rocks that the river has exposed
are half as old as the Earth itself! The south rim is the most accessible with tourist
services and most of the panoramic views that the park staked its claim for fame
with. Remember to take a photo!
USA Driving Tips
When driving your hire car in the USA, ensure that you have your driving licence
with you when using the vehicle. Check with the local rental car staff for details
of state traffic rules, as they can differ from each other. In America, you drive
on the right and the maximum speed limit in most states is 65mph (110 km/h). It
is the requirement in most states for the driver and passengers to wear seat belts
at all times.
