Las Vegas Strip Map

tries to save Las Vegas tourists money and time by providing information on the location of stores, restaurants, hotels and more on the Las Vegas Strip. For instance, Walgreen's and CVS charge the same prices in their Strip stores as they do anywhere else. Visitors can save on pop, drinks, smokes, and even souvenirs in these stores when compared to the expensive hotel gift shops. Cigarettes can cost $3 less per pack in the drug stores.

The Las Vegas Monorail can also save guests time and money if they use it right and if they are traveling on the east side of the Las Vegas Strip. It's really convenient if visitors are going to the Las Vegas Convention Center. Taxis are everywhere on the Las Vegas Strip, including the hotels and major restaurants. Buses run every 15 minutes for most of the day, and then less often very late at night, early in the morning. Many hotels run shuttles in between their sister properties, or to major shopping venues. The Las Vegas Trolley has stopped their service to the hotels.

With the current down economy there are less traffic obstructions than usual, and it is likely that most construction will be ending soon.


Las Vegas Strip Travel Tips

  • Use the streets parallel to the Las Vegas Strip -Strip traffic is stop and go in the evenings, and even in the day it can be difficult. Industrial Road and Frank Sinatra Drive are better options on the west side of the Las Vegas Strip, and Paradise Rd and Koval Ln are better for driving on the east side of the Strip.

  • Consider Buying a Map -GPS is wonderful in most areas, but they won't include the detail needed to manage your way around the Strip. Or you can print our map out.

  • Use the free shuttles in between the Las Vegas Strip Hotels and other locations. -Many hotels run free shuttles between sister properties, and to the Strip. These shuttles are free for hotel guests, and often will take non-guests. You may need to call the hotel to determine if they run a shuttle, and to check on their scheduled times.

  • Bring water if you're walking, especially in late spring through early fall -The daily high temperature in Las Vegas is typically over 100° F from the end of May through the middle of September.

  • Las Vegas is pretty safe, but be cautious -Muggings are bad for tourism, so Metro and hotel security do a great job of keeping an eye out for bad guys, and keeping visitors safe. But there's less security in areas away from the casinos, especially off of the Strip and in the local neighborhoods.

  • Drivers in Las Vegas don't respect crosswalks -Sadly a number of pedestrians are killed every year in Las Vegas, and it is fairly evenly divided between the walkers doing something stupid, like jumping a barricade and crossing the street in between intersections, and drivers plowing into pedestrians who are legally crossing in a crosswalk.
