so how much can i expect to pay for a taxi to fremont street. i was told not to walk, to only take a cab. any reason why?never been before.
Well, don't walk to Fremont St if you're staying on the Strip only 'cause its pretty far away. Sorry, don't know much about the cost though.
It's difficult to say how much the cab would cost if we don't know where you are starting from.
Have you considered a bus? They run along the length of the Strip & it's only $2 each way.
i was told that people schould not try to walk to the airport from hotels near the luxor even though it is not that far because there are no sidewalks most of the way and you would have walk in the sand and rocks or on the side of the roads. might be the same way from north end of strip to freemont street.
use to be cost for taxi from flamingo hotel to airport and from flamingo to freemont street was about the same within 75 cents to a dollar.
there use to be free transportation from barbary coast to orleans and another coast property two or three times a hour and then from there to downtown like once every couple of hours.
look at some of the good web sites i have listed on my vegas page .
one of them has details on hotels shuttles and buses
think it is the lasvegasadvisor one .
With some basic math, I may be able to help. A taxi from the airport to the Sahara (far end of the strip) was about $14 with tip. A taxi from the Sahara to Freemont was about $8. Knowing that a single cab ride is cheaper than 2, $20 with tip should do you fine. By the way, don't stay at the Sahara....What a dive.
depends on where you are coming from and please realize that your driver is charged an additional 23% of fity percent ride towards the tip so on a 10 dollar ride figure on the tip alone 1.23 is already paying the goverment
Depending on where you are staying fremont street may be too far to walk to.
Travel Tips for Las Vegas
Visiting LAS VEGAS and San...
Visiting LAS VEGAS and San Miguel County, New Mexico is like stepping back in time. Over the past 4 hundred years, Indians, Hispanic settlers, Anglo immigrants, Desperadoes and dance hall girls have all called this place home. Today, their legends and lore still live on.

Las Vegas, New Mexico is a beautiful little town tucked up agains the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. It's eastern view is across hundreds of miles of the high plains. To the west, the Sangre's protect it from the harsh desert airs of Arizona. Natural springs and running water have helped the town maintain it's green trees through out the year, and provide cooling comfort on the hottest days.
Fort Union just outside of Las Vegas, was a welcome sight for the travelors on the Santa Fe Trail after nearly 560 miles (900 k), Fort Union was evidence that their journey was nearing an end.
My grand adventure
In August of 2004 I left the moldy mildewed state of Michigan, headed for Las Vegas, New Mexico, to attend graduate school at New Mexico Highlands University. With a 27 ft. truck it is a three day trip from Benton Harbor. I love northeastern New Mexico. The weather is wonderful, and the sunsets over the mountians are just as spectacular as those I grew up with over Lake Michigan.
