I'm so exicted that I found this board as part of the Dis! Perhaps you guys can help me. DH, DD age 10 and I are heading to Vegas in two weeks for a dance competition. We are staying at the Encore but the competition is at the Tuscany on East Flamingo Road. We will have to get there three days of our week long trip. How difficult will this be to get to? It doesn't look like it's that far but I've heard traffic on the Strip is bad. Is there a back way? I planned to rent a car since I know the Encore is at the far end of the Strip and the Tuscany is off the Strip. Is taking cabs a better option? I would think they would be way more expensive but will I be lost and tearing my hair out from the traffic? I have never been to Vegas before so I'm pretty clueless. Any advice would be appreciated!!!
