    We drove into Vegas. It was an experience. As we were getting close the The Hoover Dam, and about to cross into Nevada from Arizona, the roads get pretty crazy. Well especially for Mid-West drivers. Hey, we only have flat land here!!! I wouldn't want to do it at night again. It was a little scary. I took a picture of this crazy, steep, curvy road in the day time. It was the scariest drive of my life...especially with that Flying J trucker on our behind!
    Once you are on The Strip, forget about your car! There is really no use driving at all. It took us about 1 hour to get from one end to the other when we were trying to get in and out of town! It's a headache to try to drive. Walk The Strip as you stop from place to place. If you get too hot, go inside for awhile. Many of the casinos are connected by air conditioned walkways. If you want to get to the other end of The Strip, jump on one of the buses.

    Depending on where you live, the only really way is to fly or drive. The airport is really close to the strip, and I think some hotels do have shuttles. If you drive, there is lots of parking at the hotels and I definitely recommend using the valet service. I know that sounds posh, but the parking lots are generally quite a distance from the hotel(due to the volume and size of the place) and your suitcase can feel like a ton of bricks by the time you check in and get to your room.
    For the most part you do not need a car to get around. You can walk for the most part, between casinos, but if you want to get to the north strip(where Circus Circus, the Stratosphere, etc. are) I suggest taking the trolley, that stops at various locations on the stip, and only costs about $2.00 one way. Its a long walk between mid and north strip and you definitely don't want to walk there in the night.

    Cabs are plentiful and expensive. The city bus system is straight-forward and easy to maneuver if travelling mainly on the strip. It also gives you a chance to meet locals, and get information from folks who live there.
    Cab if outside the strip, bus or on foot while up and down the strip. BRING COMFORTABLE SHOES!!!

    A car is very useful! But you can walk the strip although this can take time as it is about 4 miles long!...Taxis and Limos go up and down the strip and there are also buses!
