Downtown to Strip

Is it really difficult / expensive to get from downtown to the strip? We are staying at the Golden Nugget as the rates are better than on the strip, but will the transportation be a pain? Thanks.

njparker - I'd definitely rent a car if I were staying downtown. You'll be able to take the back roads or highway down to the strip properties, then pull into any hotel's free valet parking. Tip when you retrieve the car and you're good to go!

We were in LV 8/19/-8/22 and stayed at the GN. Airport to GN on Friday in 5 o'clock traffic $33.00. Got passes for monorail and took cab to Sahara and monorail up and down strip.

As for safety factor. We are two women, late 50's and we LOVE downtown. Short walk to several casinos good food freemont music. It's all good!!!

The Golden Nugget is the best. Good luck on slots on our trip, $10.00 BJ tables and some good friendly dealers and good food at the buffet and also Carson Street Cafe. Beautiful room 5 minutes from the casino.

Good luck and have lots of fun!!!
