How to get around in Las Vegas
The only two modes of transportation that are not going to work are boats and trains. Otherwise, the field is wide open.
- Do use the 2-decker buses that run up and down the strip.
- Do use the monorail if you're going to the Las Vegas Convention Center and your hotel is close to one of its stops. (See
Las Vegas Hotels Map
- Do use hotel provide shuttle services TO the airport, if provided and available.
- Do use hotel shuttle FROM the airport in the Fall, Winter and Spring only.
- Do take a taxi or limo, rent a car in Las Vegas
or drive if you brought your own when going off strip, for say over a mile away.
- Do take a helicopter tour of the strip at night.
- Do tour the Grand Canyon by helicopter or bus or private auto.
- Do take an early tour of Hoover Dam , and don't forget your camera.
- Do visit Red Rock Canyon or Valley of Fire, take some sun screen along, regardless of your skin tone, and bottled water.
- Don't use hotel provide shuttle service FROM the airport in the Summer months, unless you like baking in the heat waiting for your shuttle to arrive.
- Don't use public transportation unless you have to and have an awful lot of time to waste.
- Don't walk under the Nevada sun for more than a block or two in the summer months.
- Don't wander off more than a mile or so from the strip. Those areas are not unsafe, but there's nothing there interesting to see.
- Don't take a walk behind the Stratosphere Tower on its west side, ever.
- Don't wonder off, especially at night, if you're staying downtown. Stay in the business district (where all of the downtown hotel-casinos are clustered
- Don't compete in the game of road-rage played out on Las Vegas streets and freeways. Do let the idiot have it his way.
