Is there a grocery store near the Flaminog in Las Vegas? Can I walk to it? Do I need a cab to it? Thanks.

Grocery for what exactly? You won't want to walk because you most likely will be walking a lot on the strip and around the hotels.

I just mention this because I went to an Albertson's but it was about a mile west on Flamingo. But you might find a seven eleven closer. There is also a Walgreens in the shops in front of the MGM, near the coke museum or M&M place.

I usually buy soda and liqour on my way to the hotel. You can take a bus, most routes follow the main streets.

Vons at Maryland & Trop, like the PP said. Not walking distance to the Strip. If you are not renting a car, maybe take a taxi at the airport and ask the driver to stop for you.

Just some basics, water, juice bags for the kids, and I need pudding for my son's meds. I will probably wrap it up and pack it in the suitcase, just thought if I could buy it somewhere close then I wouldnt have to worry that it will explode in the suitcase.

Thanks.

I'd really consider the bus down the street to that Albertson's. I don't know that there is a bus on that route, but it is a fairly major street. There is also a 7-eleven that is south along the strip, it might have the pudding. But I haven't been in a 7Eleven in a while maybe somone knows. Anyway it is in a little shopping center in front of the Polo Towers about a half mile south of the Falmingo. It something you are likely to walk past anyway, helpful, if it has the pudding.

Also there are little shops in between the casinos so finding water isn't a problem, juice boxes maybe harder. These are basically convience stores selling t shirt, beers, cameras and other tourist items.

There is actually a Walgreens close to the Venetian and Palazzo. It opened up not too long ago. Much closer than going to the one by MGM and Polo Towers. If I remember correctly, I saw all the items you're searching for in there.
