What is the best way to get to Las Vegas?
Flying: McCarran International Airport is the main airport serving the Las Vegas area. Most hotels are located within a 15-minute drive from the airport. Henderson Executive Airport is an alternative to McCarran for private air travel.
Train: There is no direct rail service into Las Vegas. Some nearby Amtrak train stations shuttle passengers to/from Las Vegas.
Car: From southern California, visitors can take Interstate 15 to Las Vegas. Expect this drive to be congested, especially on the weekends. It’s roughly a four-hour drive from the Los Angeles area to Las Vegas. If traveling from east of Las Vegas, drivers can take I-40 through Arizona, then head north on US-93 before picking up I-15.
What is the best time to visit Las Vegas?
Since Las Vegas is home to hundreds of conventions each year, you’ll want to check the calendar before booking your event to ensure there are no conflicts. In addition to conferences, meetings, and conventions, Vegas also hosts several major entertainment events throughout the year, including the Billboard Music Awards in May, the World Series of Poker from May to June, and the iHeartRadio Music Festival in September. And of course, New Year's Eve is a popular time for tourists to visit Sin City, plus expect bigger crowds on the weekends since it’s a frequent getaway spot for folks from Los Angeles. As for weather, you’ll experience the most comfortable daily temperatures during the spring and fall months.
Walking: Because of the heat and deceptively long stretches between hotels, exploring Las Vegas on foot isn’t advised. If you choose to walk, you may be able to travel between hotels via a bridge or underground walkway.
Transit: The Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada operates two routes on Las Vegas Boulevard: the double-decker Deuce bus and the Strip and Downtown Express. There are also three trams that operate short routes between major hotels, and the Las Vegas Monorail makes stops along the resort corridor.
Taxi: Taxis are readily available throughout Las Vegas and are usually found in front of hotels during all hours. Ride-sharing services such as Uber and Lyft are also popular here.
