If you’re settling in for an extended stay at one of the properties featuring furnished apartments in Las Vegas, then you’re also probably trying to figure out the best ways to get where you need to be in town. Luckily, Sin City has a myriad of convenient and accessible transportation options despite its open-range desert locale. And, with all the things to see and do, you’ll want to make sure you have a travel plan to experience it all while you’re in town.
- Rent a car. If you’re in the city for business, a rental car might come with the package. If so, downtown Las Vegas and the area’s beautiful outlying attractions are within easy reach. However, though parking might be easy at furnished apartments in Las Vegas, finding a spot for your car along the Strip may not be cheap or easy to do. If your travels center around the Strip, using alternative transportation may be your best bet.
- Uber and Lyft. Like most other major metropolitan areas, services like Uber and Lyft are prevalent in Vegas. Getting to and from anywhere in town can be quick, cost-effective, and convenient, though be sure to review restrictions on where drivers can pick you up and drop you off. Some area casinos require drivers to arrive at specific locations and with the size of the buildings, it might be a 15-minute walk for you just to get to the right door. Ask your driver where to be when you book the ride so you don’t risk getting downvoted!
- Las Vegas Monorail. If you plan on spending most of your time on the Strip, take advantage of the Las Vegas Monorail. This convenient option features nine trains that travel a 4-mile route behind the Las Vegas Strip from MGM Grand to the Sahara Station. Though it will cost you a few bucks, the monorail puts you above the congested traffic of the Strip, which is priceless. You can get a 7-day pass for $56 which means hassle-free travel will cost you just $8 a day.
- Free rides. There are a couple of options, near our furnished apartments in Las Vegas, that offer free rides. One of these are trams that run between popular casinos and destinations on the Strip. The ARIA Express makes stops at Monte Carlo, Crystals, and the entertainment district (Bellagio, etc.). The tram at Mandalay Bay runs from that hotel to Excalibur with a stop at the Luxor. There is also a tram that runs between the Mirage and Treasure Island. You don’t have to be guests of the associated hotels to use these trams, and if you plan your route right, you can get to where you need to be for free and save some steps along the way.
Las Vegas is great for business or pleasure, and if you’re in town for an extended stay, getting out to experience as much as you can will allow you to make wonderful memories. Thankfully, our furnished apartments in Las Vegas are conveniently located and combined with the ample transportation opportunities, everything you want to check out is just a few minutes away.
