Make sure you take a good look at the different transportation recommendations which also come in handy when at @Work 2015.
Everything is Las Vegas is bigger, including the distances between the different hotels. Did you know that the Strip is 4 miles long? In fact the distance between the Las Vegas Welcome sign and the Stratosphere is over 4.5 miles. So if you want to get around, you will need to know your transportation options. And the good people at lasvegas.com put together the following list:
Las Vegas Transportation
Cabs, double-decked buses, motor scooters, rental cars and the Las Vegas monorail. Heck, you might even flag down a rickshaw ... well, maybe not a rickshaw. But all you need to know, geographically, is this: Everything radiates from the Strip.
The most economical way to get to your hotel. Shuttles can cost less than $10 for Strip/Downtown. Check with your hotel for schedules.
The average price for an economy car in Vegas is around $25 to $30 per day, but the sky's the limit if you want a little more extravagant.
See Las Vegas in style for as low as $35 an hour. Options and pricing vary depending on the vehicle and services.
Free parking is abundant. Virtually every major hotel offers free valet parking (don't forget to tip!)
Public Transportation - (Regional Transportation Commission - RTC)
Fares vary by time and location - $6/2 hours on the Strip; off-Strip $3/2 hours. and only $2 for one way trips. Buses on the Strip run 24/7.
Taxi fares begin with an initial charge, then a per mile chargethereafter. See taxi sign on back ofheadrest for details. Most taxis now accept cash and credit card payments.
The Las Vegas Monorail
The Monorail travels from Sahara Ave to the MGM Grand 7 days per week from 7 a.m. - 12 a.m; Monday, Tuesday - Thursday 7 a.m. - 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. - 3 a.m. Friday-Sunday. Visit website for location stops and ticket prices.
Vegas on Foot
You will still cover a lot of the city on foot. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and carry a bottle of water, especially during summer months.
But my favorite remains the over the top limo....only in Vegas Baby!
