Help! Vegas Newbie Here

Hi all!

On a whim, I booked my boyfriend and myself on a long weekend to Las Vegas. I have never been there. Can anyone give me some pointers, specifically: HOW DO I GET FROM THE AIRPORT TO MY HOTEL?

Any tips you can give me are appreciated.

Could this be our long lost "friend" tims42? Sure sounds like his type of question.

Rent a car if you plan on taking side trips while you're here. Otherwise cab, limo or shuttle bus are the most popular options.

Since when is the neurotic, kevin an authority on Vegas.

He had a cerebral just trying to decide where to stay.

Taxis are plentiful after you get out of baggage claim, but can have a LONG wait depending on when you fly in (ie: waited 45 minutes in line in June on a Friday for one, can be a pain when you are trying to carry baggage through a LONG line). Limos are also plentiful (around $35/hour) but call in advance for one. They meet you in baggage claim with a sign, help carry your luggage. It's a small price to pay if you ask me, depending on when your flight comes in and how quickly you want to get to your hotel. Transfers are also available depending on where you book your trip through, but be careful, depending on what hotel you stay it, you can have up to an hour drive, they will stop at each hotel to drop off other passengers on the transfer bus. Good luck!

Are you propositioning those folks? I think you are JUST a little old for them.

No. But it is difficult to recommend a slate of activities when you do not know know anything about the people posing the question. Las Vegas has something for everyone, all "pocketbooks" and persuasions. I woud have different recommendations for party-going 20-30 year olds than I would for sight-seeing Senior Citizens.
