Both within the city and outside of the main strip there is plenty to see and do using your cheap Las Vegas car hire.
Make sure to take a drive along the famous Strip, which is lined with the world's most incredible and luxurious casinos and make your way towards the colour, glitz and glam of Freemont Street. During the day, don't miss out on a trip to the beautiful Arboretum landscaped gardens.
Heading out of the city you'll easily find the Mojave Desert where you can take part in everything from sightseeing to a huge range of outdoor pursuits, including kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking and horse riding, as well as water skiing in the nearby lakes.
The Grand Canyon is the perfect place to begin as this ancient natural formation is breath-taking in its enormity. If you haven't got time to visit this area, you can always drive to Death Valley, located just outside the city, or maybe head to Red Rock Canyon only 20 miles or so from the city. Hoover Dam is also a great location to visit in your rental car, with great views of the Colorado River and Lake Mead.
In the winter months you could even combine a city break in the city of sin with a ski or snowboard holiday at the Mount Charleston Ski and Snowboard Park, only 40 or so miles from the city centre.
