There is more to Vegas than its infamous party center tag. Las Vegas is surrounded by nature’s magnificence, all within driving distance. When you’ve had your fill of club hopping and concerts, head out to one of these destinations in the exotic car you’ve rented. Driving down will also give you a chance to test out the engine. It would be incompetent to rent out a Ferrari Spider only to drive down the Strip.
Cool places to drive down to in your exotic rental car:
- Ghost Towns: There are so many Ghost Towns around Las Vegas that make the trip interesting. You can choose from Berlin to Bowers Mansion.
- Valley of Fire: Covered in Red sandstone for as far as the eye can see, the Valley of Fire will take your breath away. Considered as one of the oldest state parks in Nevada, VOF is an hour’s drive from north of Las Vegas. Watch out for kangaroo rats, rattlesnakes, coyotes, kit foxes, antelope ground squirrels and bighorn sheep.
- Death Valley National Park: A longer drive would take you to Death Valley National Park. If you want to visit a place which balances the old while accommodating the new, Death Valley Park is the place. You can also stay back for the night at one of the many accommodations offered here. Along the way, make sure you stop at the Scotty’s Castle and China Ranch. There are also guided tours offered here for those inquisitive souls who want to explore the paleontology remnants.
