    I have never cabbed from the airport to downtown. Which is the fastest route: Paradise or I 15? Thanks in advance.

    Cheapest and fastest is to tell the cabbie to take Paradise to 4th St and also tell him NO TUNNEL.

    Explanation: Paradise curves at the Strat, quickest route is to then turn right on LV Blvd and stay in the left lane and follow the the signs to Downtown and that turns into 4th St.

    Take 4th all the way to Steward St, turn left and MSS is 4 blocks away.

    Fewer stop lights than taking Paradise to Main Street, which you also catch at the Strat, if you continue straight.

    My last trip I took a taxi from Gold Spike on Ogden to airport because of the early morning flight and asked him to take Paradise. Of course, not much traffic around 5am. Bill was about $25.
