A meeting with Lady Luck might be the main reason you buy airfare to Las Vegas. But you don't have to set foot inside a casino to enjoy many Las Vegas vacation packages. This famous gambling mecca has increasingly positioned itself as a vacation destination the whole family can enjoy. Take the kids to Adventuredome, America's largest indoor theme park, or to the Big Apple Coaster at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino. If you're an active adventurer, ascend in a balloon, race an American muscle car, or off-road in the desert. Are urban experiences more your speed? Catch spectacular shows at many hotels, shop at the elite boutiques of Via Bellagio, or sample world cuisines at celebrity-chef restaurants. Flights to Las Vegas land at McCarran International (LAS), which offers you an early taste of gaming thrills with on-site slot machines.
Transportation from LAS
Since McCarran International is only three miles from downtown, nearly all city accommodations qualify as Las Vegas airport hotels. But after disembarking from your cheap Las Vegas flights, you'll still want to get to your room quickly so you can enjoy the glamour of The Strip. Both Terminals 1 and 3 generally have the same transportation options. If you booked cheap airfare to Las Vegas, continue the money-savings with a public bus. For more direct service, try a group shuttle, or even greater convenience via the city's ten taxi companies. The number of passengers per vehicle maxes out at five, including kids and babies. Rides to and from the airport get a small surcharge. Cheap flights to Las Vegas not a factor? Limousine service may be more your style. Book a driver in advance and he or she can meet you at baggage claim and help you with your luggage.
