Search for car hire in Las Vegas
Las Vegas is one of America's most famous cities, renowned throughout the world for gambling, shopping and entertainment. Surrounded by desert, there are many major attractions in Las Vegas, a lot of which are open 24 hours a day. Despite good public transport links, there is nothing like cruising down the Strip by car, especially at night when every building and attraction is a sea of multi coloured neon lights, so renting a hire car is recommended. easyCar is an online car hire specialist, making rental car bookings simple. easyCar have car rental facilities at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport and downtown Las Vegas.
Las Vegas – The City
Las Vegas can seem a little unreal as a protrusion of buildings appear out in the desert, many of which are copies of other areas of the world, such as the Venice canals, Egypt's Sphinx, Paris' Eiffel Tower and the New York skyline.
The Strip is renowned for its extensive choice of accommodation, shops, casinos, theme parks and active experiences, as well as being a popular wedding location. Many of the hotels around Las Vegas Boulevard, better known as Las Vegas Strip, are extensive resort hotels with casinos, theme parks, multiple swimming pools, shopping emporiums, endless eateries and hundreds of rooms.
For the thrill seekers amongst you, hold on for the 225-foot drop of the Desperado Roller Coaster, the world's tallest and fastest roller coaster, or keep your feet firmly on the ground and drive your hire car to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The race track is host to a round of the NASCAR Sprint Cup series in late February, the biggest motorsport series in the USA, where cars joust at high speeds around a 1.5 mile, banked oval track.
For spectacular views of Las Vegas, view the city from the 1,149-foot Stratosphere Tower at night or visit the new multimillion dollar Star Trek: The Experience. Need to keep out of the sun? The Adventuredome Theme Park located at Circus Circus on the strip, is an indoor five-acre theme park. The park offers everything from rock climbing, 18-hole miniature golf, to the Canyon Blaster Roller Coaster. Alternatively, for a spectacular animal experience, visit the world-famous magicians Siegfried & Roy's Secret Garden.
Do look at booking Las Vegas shows before you arrive, where many world famous big names showcase their acts, to avoid disappointment.
