How To Make Your Las Vegas Trip Comfortable And On A Budget?As soon as you get off the plane you know you are in Vegas and are bombarded by visual entertainment.Everything is bright and flashing,it seems like daytime even at night.
For our budget,our trip into the Vegas airport begins on a Sunday through Wednesday.The focus and goal of our trip is to get into the great outdoors.We like to stay the first couple of nights in Vegas and then the last couple of nights too,with the middle of the trip spent touring awesome places in the great Mohave Desert.
Many times your best deal on a rental is going to be for a weekly rental.The day I want to begin my weekly rental,I take a taxi to the rental location to pick up my car being careful to pick it up at the same time of day that I will be returning it the day of my departure.As you choose your car rental,you might find that they have a location right at the hotel you choose to stay at.
Las Vegas has plenty of entertainment to enjoy,with shows that change from month to month.The water show at the Beligio is interesting and cool if seem by night from the Eiffel Tour.Everybody likes the free volcano at the Mirage,the lion's habitat at the MGM,The show in front of TI,Mardi Gras style show in the Rio and on and on.
Vegas on a budget,is what I should have called this article!That's how I like to travel.I want to be comfortable,have great adventure,for a reasonable amount of money.
There are a lot of slot canyons that are very beautiful.A slot is a narrow passageway through cliff lined canyons.When you are in a narrow canyon,there is no place to escape.
Many times I have stayed on the strip at Tropicana Ave.Returning to the car rental lot at the airport is just minutes from this part of the strip.There are hotels on Las Vegas Blvd,more just off the strip and some just blocks away from the strip in downtown Las Vegas.Many times your best deal on a rental is going to be for a weekly rental.The day I want to begin my weekly rental,I take a taxi to the rental location to pick up my car being careful to pick it up at the same time of day that I will be returning it the day of my departure.As you choose your car rental,you might find that they have a location right at the hotel you choose to stay at.
I like to return back towards Las Vegas using AZ alt 89 out of Page,AZ.Be sure you make the turn on alt 89 or you will continue south towards Flagstaff,AZ.As you continue on highway alt 89 you'll get to Jacobs Lake,this is the turn off if you are interested in visiting the North Rim of The Grand Canyon.
We visited The Glen Canyon Dam which created Lake Powell.Lake Powell has 2000 miles of shoreline and canyons etc.As you look for boat rentals,you need to decide if you want to rent at the marina where the boat is in another rental or the water where you may have to tow or arrange for the boat to be launched.
Heading south on Utah highway 89 from either Zion or Bryce you'll see a turn off for Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park.One popular visit in the area is the Paria and Johnson Canyon Movie Set where over 300 movies and TV shows were filmed.
