My wife and I are going to stay at the Paris Oct 10-14. Where are some good walking distance places to eat. I mean like Burger King, McDonalds, and other cheap places. We don't want to spend 20 bucks a plate or more at every meal, it will eat up all of our cash. I have heard that the Ellis Island casino, located behind the Paris, off the strip has a good steak special, but is it safe to walk over there. I have heard from a lot of folks not to leave the strip. Is it safe enough for me to walk to the Hard Rock or Ellis Island without having to worry about being mugged or my wife being raped or something? If we were to eat every meal at the Paris, we would be broke, quick. Its pricey from what I saw.
Also, what is the best way to get from one end of the strip to the other. We want to see Fremont St. on one day, which is 7 miles from the hotel, but want to see the Luxor on another day as well, which is 3 miles in the opposite direction. Cab fare will add up to quick. Does the strip trolley go to Fremont St? Am I better off taking the monorail everywhere?
Finally, we wanted to run over and see the Pussycat Dolls as they are right across from our hotel, but if that means we have to stand in line at PURE and pay a huge cover charge then screw it. We are not nightclub people and want to avoid the Pure scene, but want to see the PCD show. Is it possible to skip the line and crowd at Pure and just go to the PCD lounge without the huge line and cover?
Thanks for all of your input.
