    You really know your way around Vegas when:

    1) You can get to the Casino Royale parking structure

    2) You can get to the Cosmopolitan heading east on Harmon from Dean Martin Drive.

    These are just a few routes I'm proud to know about (except having to actually park in the Casino Royale structure) and I'm sure others out there know more than I do.

    Just wondering if any else has navigated to places that are hard to find, or found routes that were probably only known by savvy cab drivers.


    Cheers,


    Cosmo

    When someone asks where the closest CVS is and you know and point them to Harmon and Paradise.

    When you've heard the songs played at the Bellagio fountains already.

    When you already know what 2 for 1 offers you can use in the ACG without looking through the book.

    Your disappointed because they've moved your favorite machine.

    You know when to use I-15 or the back roads because of the time of day.

    The rental car agent remembers you.

    ........You can park in the parking structure at Planet Hollywood, sprint through The Miracle Mile, go down the escalator, and arrive at the registration area in less than five minutes!

    ........you give your cab driver directions to your hotel!


    .......Elvis asks you for directions!

    When you give incorrect information about the city you live in but you can give any information about Vegas like you have lived there all your life.

    When the people you work with come to you first before they booked their trip.

    Last week, it was a direct walk from the Quad to LVA offices, via the valet drive through the middle of CP and then along either Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra (forgot which one) north a tad and across the I-15 underpass using Twain by its intersection at Industrial.
    Once I got on other side of I-15, it was a snap to get to LVA's 3665 S. Procyon address.
