My wife and I will be taking our first trip to Vegas 10/29-11/2. We are staying at NYNY. I didn't realize exactly how big the "strip" is but now I see its roughly 4 miles long. We can certainly do it, especially with all the stops since we'll likely be checking everything out but is renting a car something we should really consider? I was planning to just hang out on the main strip and if there was something we really wanted to do far away just take a taxi. I planned to take a taxi to the Hard Rock to check that out. I see there are all day monorail passes, so I might get an all day pass for that if it looks worthwhile.
