    We will be arriving on a 10:30pm flight on a Sunday night and looking for suggestions if we take a taxi. Which route would you tell driver to take ?

    Thanks

    Fastest route would be Tropicana to I-15, then exit Charleston and left on Main St. Cheapest route would be straight up Paradise to LV Blvd, and straight up to Fremont Street. At that time of night, shouldn't be very much traffic, so I would recommend Paradise, will save you about $5. Fare should be about $20-$25. If driver takes tunnel, or takes I-15 to I-95 they are long hauling you and fare will be about $35-$40.

    Swenson becomes Paradise...stay on Paradise to Sahara. Turn left, go 1 block to LV Blvd & turn right...go about 5 blocks to where 4th intersects with LVB to the left (at an angle). Take 4th to Carson, Left 1/2 block to the D
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    Topcard is correct and has great musical taste. Toad headlined Riverfest in Newburyport last labor day weekend. Great show.

    Why turn on Sahara? Just stay on Paradise, it turns into Main street at the Stratosphere and then just take main street to Carson.

    Yeah...it sort-of merges in with St. Louis...which crosses LVB and becomes Main St. at that point. But you cannot take Carson from Main & get to 'theD'... Carson dead-ends into the Nugget from Main.
    But yeah - you could have the cabbie stay on Paradise until it merges with St Louis, turn right on LVB, and then go to 4th. I don't think that would reduce your cab fare any, but it may save you one extra traffic light.
