Las Vegas Strip Map (PDF) This is from the Las Vegas Monorail Website, and it gives you a good quick glimpse into how the Hotels and Casinos unfold along the Las Vegas Strip.
Las Vegas is an overwhelming place, but it is surprisingly easy to understand and is fairly manageable as a travel destination because so many of the attractions, hotels and casinos are located along a stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard about two miles in length called “The Las Vegas Strip” or “The Strip”. This area is lined on both sides with dozens of huge resort hotels – many among the largest on earth.
It’s important to note that the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Las Vegas Hilton are not along the strip, rather about a mile away but easily accessible by the fantastic monorail system that runs from the Sahara hotel on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip to the MGM Grand near the South end of the Las Vegas Strip.
McCarran Airport is a few miles from the strip. Shuttles leave often and are about $5, but often make many hotel stops before your hotel so allow about an hour from the Airport to the strip or take a Taxi for about $12 which is faster. Shuttles pick up at the hotels but you should call for reservations in advance. Most hotels in Las Vegas do not have their own shuttle services. Walking from McCarran Airport to the Las Vegas Strip is not advisable due to traffic and no direct route. I’ve done it twice, it took well over an hour, and I regretted it both times.

The strip is still where most of the glitz and glamor is located but ‘strip odds’ and ‘downtown odds’ are now terms that are no longer exclusively related to location.
One advantage of the strip is that for much of its length it is legal to carry an open container of alcohol, since so many people wander from casino to casino.
Even the off-strip properties will have frequent shuttles to the strip usually.
That downtown ‘gem’ the Hell Cortez is even coming up in the world: they’ve emptied the ashtrays for what has got to be the first time in years and they’ve splashed some mop water around the joint. Even put in a few snazzy flat screen tvs.
An up to date map of the strip at this link. I found quite a few Las Vegas Casino maps that still show the Stardust, New Frontier, Westward Ho, Boardwalk and even The Desert Inn as casino properties. Some of these casinos were imploded more than a few years ago.
Yes. Some casinos still under construction are already on the map, some casinos that are long gone are on the map and some existing casinos don’t even make the map because they are small and don’t have advertising budgets.
Many maps are inadequate for navigating shortcuts and fail to show shuttle stops, etc.

Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness

In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
Spot on with this write-up, I honestly feel this web site needs a lot more attention. I’ll

A progressive guide of the strip at this connection. I discovered many Las Vegas Casino maps that still demonstrate the Stardust, New Frontier, Westward Ho, Boardwalk and even The Desert Inn as gambling club properties. Some of these gambling clubs were imploded more than a couple of years prior
