Good tip, thanks

Maybe worth us doing that rather than driving up and down.

There were a couple of years where we took the bus, but the last couple trips it was AWFUL! I think I could have walked faster than the bus - what with all the stops and the traffic on the strip!!! LOL.

About valet parking, what I was always taught was to NOT tip when you dropped off your car - only trip $2-$3 when you collected the car. A good place to get appropropriate Las Vegas etiquette for such things is the "Unofficial Guide to Las Vegas."

I can confirm you will pay at the Main Street Station surface lot, but can get reimbursed if you go into their casino. It used to be that you could park at some of the places downtown and get your parking pass "validated"; but I think they've slowly been changing that.

Other than downtown, I have not heard of any other properties that charge for parking.

For Muffin and anyone else that can use the info...

Free Vegas Parking locations ...

( remove spaces )

We always rent a car as we love going up and down the strip. Las Vegas Blvd. can be much easier to drive than one might think. Bus stops CAN GET Crowded ! in fact they can get down right crazy after 6:30pm or so.

We were there last week. You pay to enter the surface lot, then take your receipt into the casino to get reimbursed.
