Las Vegas by Foot

You can walk around Vegas easily and safely, however be aware at what seems to be close by can be a very long way on foot. Just walking through one casino hotel can be like a trek in itself, let alone getting out into the street and heading down the Strip. Everything is big and spacious so that requires more footwork. However, on saying that, its pretty magical walking down the Strip and taking it all in slowly. Vegas can get very hot so don’t plan a lot of walking in Summer and always have water handy.

Las Vegas by Car

If you want to sight see around Vegas driving a hire car is the best option. Driving in Vegas is straightforward and safe, however due to heavy traffic at times can be slow especially on the strip. Due to the fact that Americans love their cars, roads and parking are top notch here, so driving is easy and often fun.

The Police in this state are plenty and vigilant. Speeding in built up areas is a real no no, and drink drivers are always being targeted, you need to be under .08 in Nevada

Be very careful when hiring cars here, often the rate you are quoted when you book is not the same rate you a re expected to pay when you arrive for the car, there are many hidden charges.

You need to be over 21 to hire a car in Nevada. There are many car hire services within America and price vary greatly so it helps to shop around.

Parking is great in Vegas, Valet parking is free at the casinos, you are just required to tip of course and there are plenty of huge self parking lots.

Las Vegas Taxi

This is always an easy option in Vegas and they are very readily available outside casinos and hotels. However, you cannot hail taxi from the street you can only catch them by phone booking or waiting in the taxi line outside the casinos and hotels

Due to the close proximity of the airport to the Strip or Down Town cab fares will only cost between $10 and $20 to your hotel, be aware though if traffic is heavy on the Strip it can blow out to a lot more.

Las Vegas Monorail

What a great idea the monorails are every city should have one, especially Vegas. At the stage the Monorail runs 4 miles from MGM Grand on the South Strip to The Sahara at the North Strip, stopping at many casinos in between. From one end to the other will take approximately 15 mins. Often the walk from the stop to your expected destination can be long, taking into account how big the casinos are so factor in your walk time.Las Vegas by Bus

You can catch a bus along the Strip. The CAT bus leaves from Downtown transportation centre and travels past the Southern end of the Strip, it runs 24 hours a day and you need the correct change. It is very economical at only $2 per ride and better still $5 all day pass.

Just new to Vegas are The Deuce, modern double Decker buses. These buses also run the length of the Strip and into Downtown and are cheap too at $5 for an all day fare.

Las Vegas trolleys

If you like the idea of travelling by a classic American streetcar then look for the Las Vegas Strip Trolley. They are old fashioned yet air conditioned and only run along the Strip stopping at many hotels and casinos. They run every 15mins.

Free Transport in Las Vegas

Many of the casinos offer complimentary transport when you are a guest there, make sure you enquire about this courtesy service when you check in. The monorail is free between Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur. You can also get a free tram shuttle from The Mirage to Treasure Island
