Getting Around Las Vegas

On any given day, you’ll find crowds of people walking up and down Las Vegas Boulevard. That’s because the overwhelming majority of casinos, restaurants, and shows are located on the Strip. The Las Vegas Strip runs about a mile or so in distance. If you’re fit, you shouldn’t have much difficulty walking it. To make the walk easier, many casinos have installed moving airport style walkways. Furthermore, pedestrian bridges provide a safe route across the Strip. Limousines and taxis line up outside all the major hotels. So if you’re in a hurry or just don’t feel like walking, hop in a taxi.

If you don’t want to be confined to the Strip, you may want to consider renting a car. Most hotels can accommodate your request. Many hotels also offer shuttles to the major tourist attractions including Hoover Dam, Boulder City and Lake Mead.

A new monorail that stretches across the city is in the works. At the time this was written, the first stage of the monorail, connecting the Luxor and New York New York, had been completed.
