Getting around Las Vegas

Like many American cities, Las Vegas was built with cars in mind. While you can see much of the Strip on foot, driving is the best way to get from one end to the other quickly, as it is 4 miles (7 kilometers) long. Rent a car to explore the Strip and further-flung areas, or just treat yourself to plenty of taxi rides. Alternatively, ride the monorail, which has seven stops on the Strip. Visit the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) website. Browse Las Vegas rental cars.

Best time to visit

Visit Las Vegas in shoulder season, which runs roughly from March to May and from September to November, for lower prices on flights and accommodations. There will still be plenty of sun at these times of year, but temperatures will be far more manageable than in the sizzling summer months. In spring and fall, you will be able to comfortably spend lots of time outdoors even at the peak of the day’s heat.

Hoping that with the re-opening things will get better. Every other slot machine open sucks when you’re trying to play with your partner. When we did find two machines near each other one wouldn’t work. Long time visitors...disappointed.
