    Hey all. I know Google says that from PH to Excalibur it's about a mile, but is that right? About how long does it take a "normal" person to walk that far? I'll end up taking a cab back because I'm sure my ankle will be talking after a long craps session there. But, wouldn't mind walking there to take in the sites since it's been so long since I've stayed on the strip.

    I'd say 20 minutes.

    I think it usually takes longer due to traffic on the strip (walkers, gawkers, and hawkers) slowing things down.
    Early in the morning when there is very little foot traffic, I can do the walk in ten minutes mostly slowed down by climbing steps on the pedestrian bridge.

    I think the Aria / City Center side is more encumbered, then say the PHo / MGM (east side) but traffic around the M&M and Hawaii village can be irritating.

    Good to know Funk. I'll be heading there about 5pm or so. Enough time to scarf some food and take a shower after my flight.

    Agreed. That section is hard to navigate and not pedestrian friendly.

    I'd cross the street over to MGM and walk up that way rather than Aria/City Center. 15-20 minutes assuming normal foot traffic.
