    Would you walk the strip or would you walk to the tram at Monte Carlo and take the tram to the Bellagio?

    It's been a while since I've done that walk. Seems to that just walking the strip would be easier.

    What would you do?

    I'd almost certainly walk (unless I was starting from the back of MC and headed to Sensi or something). The tram stop is all the way in the back by the Spa Tower, which means you're hiking through Monte Carlo, waiting for the tram, and then hiking through Bellagio. I can't imagine it saving that much time, and it's a nice walk.

    This was one of my more frequent trips.

    Before the construction between NYNY and MC, it was much easier to simply cut across the outdoor parking lot (leave NYNY out the North entrance, then zigzag through the former MC parking lot and enter the South MC entrance, then off to the tram).

    Now that the outdoor parking lot is blocked off, only the East NYNY exit can be used, so getting to the tram through MC is more of a hike, however, I still think it is closer and/or less time, especially if you are accessing Bellagio from the south, or going to CP.

    Depends... if it's 115 degrees I want to stay inside as much as possible! Bellagio is far though even from the street it's a hike to get inside...

    Walking from NYNY and proceeding to Bellagio was a pleasant walk........BEFORE City Center came about. Walking past La Quinta/Carrows, Monte Carlo, Boardwalk, and the Helicopter pad/Quiznos was awesome.
    Now, i'd rather take the Tram or cross the bridge to Planet Hollywood going south and then cross the street at Rue Monte Carlo.
    I was and still am a hater of City Center.

    Virtues or pleasantness of the walk aside, I'm all but certain that tramming it is faster.

    I don't hate CityCenter, but it does make the walk to Bellagio a bit longer.

    One point I will add: I don't think the tram dropping you off at the Bellagio spa tower is really a big deal. At worst, its about a three to four minute walk from the tram station to the Bellagio lobby. It's actually a much shorter distance than Las Vegas Blvd to the Bellagio lobby (albeit without a lake and fountain show to watch as you make the stroll)

    Walking the street level is not as simple as one might think. You do have to go up and over the entrance to City Center.

    Depending on weather and timing...my prioritized list is:

    1 - Walk the whole way, but through Monte Carlo, then through Aria, then through Vdara into Bellagio. Get to see more things and get a little exercise. And be protected from weather most of the way.

    2 - Walk to tram stop at Monte Carlo. Take tram to Bellagio.

    3 - Walk street.

    Ditto on #1! That Bellagio tram is scary - anyone notice that it leans way over to one side? Never again!
