The advantage of Las Vegas attractions being concentrated on the Strip allows the main points of the city to be covered on foot. However, for those who need to get out of this central area of the Strip, an excellent tip is to use the public transport system, whose efficiency is guaranteed.
Another way to get around the casinos is to use the Monorail, a small train that has stations in the Strip.
Renting a car can also be a good idea. But an important tip is to try to avoid driving at night on the Strip, which usually suffers from heavy congestion.
Like any other big city in the US, Las Vegas prides itself on its crime suppression measures. As a result, the city enjoys widespread security. Visitors should only take care when traveling through the darker, less populated areas at the northern and southern ends of the Strip. Vegas police also patrol the Strip on bicycles, helping to control troublemakers.
Basic precautions are recommended, such as not reacting in the event of theft or robbery, and not exposing personal belongings and valuables in deserted places. In the event of problems, contact a police authority or the city guards.
A curious fact is the street marketers who approach tourists with leaflets and flyers. They are not dangerous, but they can be annoying.
“The Deuce”, an air-conditioned double-decker bus, makes strategic stops every 15 minutes near the main hotels on the Strip.
Administered by the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC), the The Deuce is probably the least expensive way to get around. As well as being clean and safe, it offers an unlimited 24-hour pass.
These buses are more accessible than cabs, which cannot pick up passengers on the street.
