said the walked from there to the strip..OMG I Can't believe that. The
taxi ride is at least 10 mins....that must have taken FOREVER! And it
could not have been that safe!
LOL yeah... by the time we got to the Stratsophere, it was pretty dark and certain areas between it, I clung to DH, as some of the people we pasted or saw while we were walking kinda creeped us out. We thought it would take maybe 15-20min... took more like 40-60 and i was in cute little strappy sandals! That was our 2nd night there and I had giant blisters on my feet the rest of the trip! It only looks closer, because the land is flat out there. We paid the $2 bus fare rode the Deuce back, and then took the bus over to The Strip the other days, lol...
We bought Fromers' Guide to Las Vegas and they had a lot of suggestions and pricing info on restaurants, so we didn't buy any real expensive meals the whole time we were there - we'd get the lunch/breakfast buffet our hotel had several days, or buy a bagel for or something for breakfast at the stand downstairs and get 99 cent footlong hot dogs at Slots A Fun for lunch.
Bride4Life, you're probably thinking Mandalay Bay, as when we were there last fall that was the only hotel pass The Luxor.
We took a day and rode the bus down to the south end of The Strip (Manadalay Bay) and walked all the way up to The Stratosphere at the north end. It wasn't too bad, but we paced ourselves and stopped in at all the different hotels, casinos and sites along the way. Just wear comfy walking/tennis shoes like we did and you'll be fine - just be sure to stop and sit down for a few minutes if your feet/calves start hurting, as The Strip itself is several miles long (i think it's between 3 and 5).
The only time when we were there that the bus seemed to take forever was on Friday night, when traffic was the busiest we saw it all week, but it was Friday night so it made sense traffic would be stop and start on The Strip. The rest of the week we were there the bus made decent travel and it was pretty safe and clean too.
