How do I get around Las Vegas?

Like many U.S. cities, Las Vegas isn’t super walkable. Not only that, but the legendary Las Vegas Strip is famous for appearing like all the hotels are really close together. The reality is that these properties are huge and far away from each other. You might think you can easily walk from one end of the Strip to the other in a short period of time, but the Strip’s many escalators, walkways and bridges make it a bit more difficult. Not to mention that in the summertime, it’s too hot to walk that far! We recommend UBER/Lyft, Bus or Monorail.
