Getting Around Las Vegas

Travel By Car
Most locals prefer to avoid the strip, and alternately take I-15 instead, as it runs parallel to the strip. Virtually all major casinos on the strip and downtown offer free parking and most offer valet for an additional charge. 

Travel By Monorail
The Las Vegas Monorail runs along the east side of the Strip with stops behind several of the hotels and at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It costs $5 one-way, $9 return and $15 for a one-day pass. Sometimes it is more economically practical to take a taxi if you are with a small group. 

Travel by Bus
The Regional Transporation Commission of Southern Nevada operates 49 bus routes throughout the valley. Most routes operate 5:30 a.m. to 1:30 a.m. daily, but some routes run 24 hours a day. Single ride tickets are typically $2.00 for adults and $1.00 for kids and senior citizens. 

Travel By Foot
The hotel-casinos are close enough to each other to make walking a reasonable means of travel. The most straightforward option is to walk along Las Vegas Boulevard, however during the summer the heat can make walking outside uncomfortable. Alternately, many hotels are connected either by bridge, by underground, or by complimentary rail shuttle.
