America is a big place, possibly too big to explore by hire car in its entirety, but surely there are some options for shorter tours? Especially for those people who would like to explore for a few days during their vacation? Let’s take a look at one possible itinerary, starting in Las Vegas fly into McCarran International Airport and visit either Budget, Hertz, Avis or Sixt to pick up the hire car of your choice, spend the day and evening exploring Las Vegas and then get a good night’s rest for the next stage of the trip. The second day takes in the Grand Canyon South Rim National Park, including a visit to the Hoover Dam and extensive viewing of the landscape along the Grand Canyon Rim, return to Las Vegas in the evening for your choice of fun, or simply an evening relaxing in your hotel room.
The next day you could take a trip out to the Valley of Fire, the oldest State Park in Nevada. Originally the bed of a long gone sea, the terrain is a mixture of dramatic rock formations and desert scrub, the kind of desert usually associated with old Wild West movies, and one of the most idiosyncratic landscapes on the planet. Return to Las Vegas again in the evening, for a night in the casinos or to take in a show at one of the infamous Las Vegas show bars. A three day tour of Las Vegas and the surrounding natural attractions, in the comfort of your own private hire car.
