    On a Saturday night in late July? As Homey T.. Clown said, "I don't think so. Homey don't play that." :wink2:
    Well would you? Or cab it? Or What? Discuss. Thanks!

    I would walk it for a couple reasons:
    1. I like walking
    2. The walk would probably take less than half an hour
    3. The cab line following an event at the arena will be ridiculously long. Walking is actually faster

    Following suit here, not a terrible amount to walk. Besides, might be nice night for a walk in late July.

    I walked from the Hard Rock to the MGM after a concert. Surely, I'd walk from the MGM to the Cosmo.

    I've done that walk in July. Its hot at night but its not the same as walking outside during the day with the sun beating down on you. You can always walk to Monte Carlo, then take the monorail to Aria if you wanna be inside with air conditioning for part of the trip.

    Walk inside Mgm to stay in the AC longer, take the exit near hakkassan on the 2nd floor and take the bridge to nyny. From there it's only a 10-15 minute walk outside to cosmo

    Have walked from the Riv to the MGM for a concert and then back again. One of many first time Vegas mistakes. Cosmo to MGM shouldn't be too bad.

    Yeah, that sounds awful. haha My first night on the Strip my buddy and I were at Mandalay Bay. We decided to try to see the thing by walking. Took the tram to Exalibur and then walked all the way down to Mirage (I didn't know about the tram from NYNY to Bellagio) and watched the Volcano. The walk back killed my feet. Never again!

    The walk isn't very far but in July the heat will be a problem. Make sure you take along water or stay in the areas with a/c to keep from overheating. After events the traffic will be horrendous so the walk may be faster than taking a cab or car.
