Experience Nevada in One of Our Rental Cars
Travel to "The Silver State" in your Nevada rental car to experience warm weather and lots of Western charm. The origin of the state's name is Spanish, meaning "snow-capped," but you won't find any snow unless you go to the hilly areas of this vast location. The seventh largest state in land area, sightseeing by car is the only way to see the top landmarks in the state. Whatever vacation plans are made in Nevada, they're sure to be unforgettable.
The next stop on your Nevada vacation is Reno. Reno isn't all bright lights, but there are lots of relaxing things to do here. Start in downtown Reno, where you'll find cafes, markets and lots of local shopping. The kids will love the National Automobile Museum and the Freight House District, full of exciting entertainment and sporting events. If you're into adventure, consider going to nearby Lake Tahoe or to the Truckee River Whitewater Park at Wingfield Park for extreme water activities.
While you may think of Las Vegas as "Sin City," there's still plenty of family activities that you can enjoy during your trip. Hop in a Las Vegas rental car and explore the city lined with restaurants, nightlife and plenty of gambling opportunities. For some fun with the kids, head to Adventuredome Theme Park to go on rollercoaster rides and play carnival games. For educational excitement, museums and galleries are great options. Try Discovery Children's Museum or go to the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat to see pink birds ruffle their feathers. If you have some time without the kids, consider hitting the Las Vegas Strip for late-night fun.
The trip isn't complete without a trip to the capital of Nevada, Carson City. While here, you'll notice that Carson City has some old-fashioned charm but lots of local amenities in terms of food and shopping to keep you and the family busy. Learn about some of the history here by visiting the Nevada State Railroad Museum or touring the Legislative Building and Supreme Court. If you're there at the right time, participate in the Kit Carson Ghost Walk, an annual event that displays some of the city's most haunted houses. If skiing is your favorite sport, Carson City is home to 18 ski resorts for enjoying some fresh powder.
