Las Vegas Area Map
The best way to get around Las Vegas is by bus or by taxi. The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) operates 42 routes around the greater Las Vegas Valley, providing easy, affordable transportation along the Strip and to other areas in and around Sin City. There are also bus routes operating 24 hours a day along the Strip and in the downtown area. And you won't find any shortage of cabs should you wish to move around on your own schedule. If you're based along the Strip, the Monorail provides fast transportation to many of the casinos along the northern part of Las Vegas Boulevard. And if you prefer to walk, you won't have an issue finding the way to most of Vegas' top to-dos, though you should arm yourself with plenty of sunscreen and water to avoid heat stroke.
Getting from the McCarran International Airport (LAS) to the Strip is a breeze, since the airport is actually right across the street from Mandalay Bay (you can access it from Wayne Newton Boulevard). Many hotels offer airport shuttle services, and the RTC buses service stops at or near the terminals. Car rentals are also available at the airport (and throughout Las Vegas), but unless you're looking to take a trip to the Hoover Dam or the Grand Canyon, you should opt for another means of transportation. Traffic along the Strip is hectic and parking is both scarce and expensive.Getting To & Around Las Vegas»
