    I have seen the answer to both of these before, but can't find them anywhere, so please bear with me. I will be staying at The D and would like to walk to the Pawn Stars pawn shop, and the tobacco store on Main Street. I am a 60+female and will be walking alone during the daytime if it's safe. How far for both and is it safe?

    Go to las vegas blvd and take a right towards the Stratosphere .. the pawn shop is a mile or so on the left hand side.

    Its safe enougn but old and tired.

    You will see the big courthouse so expect to see the sort of people who need to go to court there. In general there is little of interest to see.

    As for the tobacco store, go to main street and again go towards the strat. This street is worse then las vegas blvd. Homeless peoples, sketchy looking characters, that sort. very ondustrial and univiting.

    I have seen older couples walking down both streets though. If you are from a big city then main street wont compare to that.

    Take the bus.....

    You don't need to walk when you can just take the bus to both places.

    If the tobacco shop you want is the one owned by the Indian tribe;
    it's about a mile from the Main Street Station. They have very cheap ($10-14) cartons of generic cigarettes.

    It is a safe walk. Most comfortable in the morning. Usually the only other people I see are across the street by the day labor place.

    Walk AWAY (north) from the Strat. Facing MSS turn right and head down Main Street with MSS to your back.

    You can catch a bus across the street from MSS. Pay $2 when you board and tell the driver where you're headed.

    May be just as fast to walk.

    I have done the walk from Strat to Downtown more than a couple of times but would not advise Miller6pack to do the same. Lucy's suggestion to take the bus is a good one. I am sure one of the bus experts can provide good information.
