I am going to Vegas for the first time this April and I had some questions about getting around. I notice that nobody really seems to mention the monorail here, but it is a very quick (perhaps the quickest?) means of travel on the strip? I saw that it is quite expensive to be "public transportation", but that aside is it decent? Let me explain my plan first, since the walkways around the strip look very confusing. 3 of us, (21, 21, 23) are going to be staying the the Flamingo from SAT Apr 2nd - THURS Apr 7th. I want to take 2 whole afternoons, or as long as it takes - to visit/walk-through the following Hotels. I will go south one day, and north the next. From Flamingo South: -Caesar's Palace -Bellagio -Paris (ride eiffel tower) -Cosmo -PH -Monte Carlo (want a few checks from here,rumor has it a re-brand could be on the way? (hard rock cafe) -NYNY (ride coaster) -MGM Grand -Tropicana (as a history buff, I love anything left from the rat pack days, even if only in spirit) -Excalibur (walk to IN & OUT) -Luxor -Mandalay Bay From Flamingo North -LINQ -High Roller -Mirage -Venetian -Wynn -Circus Circus (I love Fear and Loathing and want to see what is left of the rotating bar, even if the alcohol is gone) -SLS -Stratosphere (observation tower) I'm sure all of this seems very un-ordinary and possibly just a downright waste of time, but I am a completion-ist and I get a great satisfaction from just seeing and experiencing all of these places, taking pictures, and being able to say "I've been there". We all know plans in Vegas are hard to keep but we will see. Is an all-day pass on the monorail the quickest way to move between these places considering what I want to do?
