Getting a Rental Car in Las Vegas
Travellers flying into Las Vegas will likely arrive at McCarran International Airport, which is situated just 5 kilometres southeast of the Las Vegas Strip. Here the McCarran Rent-A-Car Centre makes it easy for travellers to find the type of rental car they need. The McCarran Rent-A-Car Center is open 24 hours a day, and the airport offers dedicated shuttles to transport travellers to and from the centre.
Travellers arriving at terminal one will follow signs from the baggage claim to ground transportation on level one to find the shuttles at the centre median outside doors 10 and 11. Travellers who arrive at terminal three will follow signs from baggage claim to ground transportation on level zero to find the shuttles outside West doors 51 through 54 and East doors 55 through 58. The shuttles leave approximately every five minutes.
Driving Tips in Las Vegas
While driving down the Las Vegas Strip under the flashing and twinkling lights is an exciting experience, there are a few tips to keep in mind. The Strip, called Las Vegas Boulevard, is a 6-kilometre stretch where the majority of the city's casinos and hotels are located. As a result, traffic can get pretty congested in this area. There are no gas stations on the Strip, however drivers can find them within a kilometre on the east and west cross streets. Additionally, there is no parking anywhere on the Strip itself.
In Las Vegas, all passengers must wear a seat belt when they're travelling in the vehicle, and it's illegal for the driver to use a handheld mobile device to text or call. Finally, speed limits in the city range from 40 kilometres per hour on residential streets to 112 kilometres per hour on the nearby highway.
Sightseeing in Las Vegas
While most people come to Las Vegas to try their luck in the casinos or enjoy the shows, plenty of other attractions are worth exploring. For some heart-pounding adventures, consider one of the many thrill rides found along the Strip. The truly daring can strap on a bungee cord and jump from the 108th floor at the Stratosphere. For a more traditional experience, the High Roller is a 167-metre tall Ferris wheel that offers stunning views of the city and surrounding area.
Don't miss these unique and free attractions available in Las Vegas. Watch the Fountains at the Bellagio, the erupting volcano in front of the Mirage, the Carnival-like parade of dancers at Rio, or the acrobats and unicyclists who perform at Circus-Circus.
