How to get around Las Vegas

Taking a walk along the Vegas Strip

 

If all your activity is limited to the Las Vegas Strip, then taking a walk along the Vegas strip is ideal. This is probably the best way to really enjoy the Vegas Strip. There is a lot to see and do. Remember, however, that the Strip is a little over 4 miles long, so plan accordingly.

 

Here are some tips to make your walking experience enjoyable

 

The one thing you must bring is the most comfortable pair of shoes you have. Make that two pairs! You are going to do more walking than you can even imagine. Shoes that are too high or tight will end your walk much sooner than you had planned.

 

Make regular stops. Rest whenever you can to avoid getting tired quickly, maybe get refreshments at shops along the way. Besides the mega resorts along the strip, there are a few Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy and McDonald's along the way (click here for locations). After each stop, you will be able to continue with a fresh burst of energy.

 

Take some water with you to avoid dehydration. Take as much as you can carry comfortably and plan to buy more along the way if you run out.

 

In the extremely hot Summer months, spend as little time outside as possible. You may actually want to reconsider walking during those months. Las Vegas is in a desert after all, and the temperature is usually in the hundreds.

 

Remember to take a sweater or jacket with you, even if it's sweltering hot outside. It may seem nice at first when you come in from the heat, but the casinos are kept at a constant temperature of 60 degrees. Not good, if you happen to be wearing a tank top and shorts.

 

Cross the street at designated spots or use the pedestrian overpass. Do not jaywalk. You will be hit with a heavy fine if you're caught. As of September 2012, the fine for Jaywalking in Las Vegas was $198.00

 

Las Vegas police allow people to walk down the Strip with alcoholic beverages. Remember, however, that this is not allowed anywhere else.

 

Check the weather and take a map of the Strip with you so you can plan your stops. Check out the list of free attractions too. Don't miss anything!
