McCarran International Airport (LAS) is located in the attention-capturing city of Las Vegas. On-stage entertainment at many of the city’s casinos, and the chance to win big bucks, are just a few of the reasons to visit Las Vegas. You can even spend a quiet day away from the clamoring slot machines by taking a drive to the Hoover Dam. To get a taste of the city’s culture, wander through the Neon Museum or the Mob Museum.
Las Vegas is a sprawling city, so the best way to get around is by car. The Strip is just a ten minute drive from McCarran International. To reach the Strip, take Swenson Street and then East Flamingo Drive.
After spending a day or two on the Strip, you may be interested in touring Fremont Street. This old section of Vegas includes several of the city's classic casinos, like The Riviera. It also presents a light display when the sun goes down. To reach Fremont Street from Las Vegas Boulevard, take Interstate 15 North.
Hints and Tips
The travel time from Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) to LAS is about four hours. Keep in mind that the city’s resorts have an abundance of free parking available. Furthermore, most of the casinos offer free valet service, so a small tip would be your only parking expense for this added convenience.
