Will be staying at MGM in June 2015 for 14 nights. Will already need a car for South Rim GC/Hoover Dam/Lake Mead for a few days but am contemplating having a rental for the whole trip. Besides the cost (approx. $450- hoping this will drop) we are very nervous about driving in LV. However, we have a few destinations where we know a car would really make it easier (Fashion Show, South Outlet, North Outlet, Boulevard Mall (?), Peppermill, Strat, SLS etc). Our main concern is not being able to figure out how to get in and out of the parking areas (especially of MGM- where we are staying) and in general being lost. We really want to take the plunge, but don't want to waste the money on a car only to be too nervous to actually use it. Is it really that easy to find your way around? Are there enough easy back roads to avoid the craziness of the strip? We were also in two cab accidents on our last LV trip, hence the nervousness but also not wanting to subject ourselves to anymore cab rides... Convince me?
