Las Vegas Transportation
Our tips and advice for getting around
Las Vegas transportation options are plentiful. There are many ways to get around the Las Vegas Strip which is approximately 4 miles long (and oddly enough only a small bit of it’s actually in Las Vegas; the majority of the Strip is in Winchester and Paradise.)
The type of Las Vegas transportation you choose depends on what you want to do, what time of year you’re going - for example walking from one end of the Strip to the another is probably not going to be the best option in the height of summer - and how much money you want to spend.
We’ve tried many of the Las Vegas transportation options with varying levels of success! This page will tell you what you need to know about making your way around Las Vegas: public transportation; car rentals; airport shuttles; walking; taxis; and getting to the Grand Canyon.
