You may purchase a 24 hour bus pass all access to anywhere the Buses go 24/7 for only $8. Route maps on signs and buses and kiosks along the way and at the bus stops. Just ask any bus driver. You can take the Deuce down the Strip and to Down Town Vegas. The Deuce (double deck enclosed) Drops you off right at Fremont Street and Las Vegas Blvd, (Fremont Street Experience) or any where up and down the Strip as well. There is a special bus that looks like a train and is way faster than the metro, the stops are only along the strip and downtown. Called the Strip and Downtown Express, or "SDX" included with the 24 hr pass. Passes are available at multiple locations, and at the Kiosks at the bus stops. You just board and flash your ticket at the reader. They don't sell tickets on the bus or collect the fares so it's way faster. The express bus (SDX) stops are along the strip mostly. It drops you on the strip or Downtown right in front of Binion's at Fremont St, and as far south as Mandalay Bay the other way (South Strip). Look in the Las Vegas Sun newspaper for coupons for food and free play around town. If you play Black Jack you can get a basic strategy card at most any gift shop for $5 dollars. A wise investment, it fits in your wallet. You may use it at the table, but I wouldn't share it with the other players. If they want one they can go to the gift shop and buy their own. Most of them won't and don't have a clue about basic strategy. "Clark, it's people like you that come here and blow the family nest egg that built this town, not this pretty boy" scene from the movie "Las Vegas Vacation" starring Chevy Chase, Randy Quaid, and Beverly D'Angelo." As far as Craps just put $5 on the pass line on the come out roll and take it from there. You are not required to make any other bets than this one and yo can get into the action. If you want to read my post on craps go to Vegas Message Board, see Casino Gaming, see the sticky threads at the top of the category, "Did you want to try craps but felt too intimidated". just ckick on this link (below) http://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=14 insert 4-11-2013 ok as usual I mis-spoke when I wrote the post. It's 24 hours, not 3 days. So, nobody's perfect. .
