How to Get Around in Las Vegas
With its abundance of bright lights, crowds, street performers, and traffic, the last place you want to be in Las Vegas is behind the wheel. So, leave your car at home and take advantage of Sin City’s alternative transport options, which range from hop-on hop-off buses to limousine shuttles.
Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tours
Skip the hassle of figuring out bus routes and schedules, and instead see downtown and the Strip from a hop-on hop-off bus. The open-air, top deck gives you unobstructed views of highlights such as the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign and Fountains of Bellagio, while audio commentary provides context. Plus, ample stops throughout the city let you explore at your own pace.
Since most Vegas attractions are concentrated on the Strip or Fremont Street, it’s easy to explore on foot. Join a food tour to visit Bellagio's chocolate fountain or learn about the history of Fremont Street on a walking tour of historic downtown. When night falls, follow a guide on a bar crawl, which typically include free drinks and VIP access to top clubs.
Between the Monorail and the Deuce bus, public transport in Las Vegas is both convenient and affordable. Buy a single ticket for both bus and train, or save time and money by purchasing a 1-, 2-, or 7-day pass. The monorail’s quick turnaround times mean you can expect to wait between 4-7 minutes, while Deuce buses depart every 15 minutes.
Limos and Party Buses
It doesn’t have to be a special occasion to rent a limo in Las Vegas—they can be surprisingly affordable. Additionally, some show tickets come with limousine transfers to and from your hotel. Even better, you can book a tour of the Strip or downtown Las Vegas that transports you in a limousine or party bus, ensuring you enjoy the journey just as much as the destination.
