A good while back, there was a post on VMB with pics of this shortcut. This has been the #1 Vegas shortcut that I've used over the years. (Thanks mystery VMB member.) The directions were easy to follow, but I couldn't find the post to share with others. These pics show the shortcut to from Harrah's reception to Venetian. Just reverse if going from Venetian. It took me 6 minutes from the Valley elevators to the entrance of the Venetian food court. HARRAH'S TO VENETIAN. 1. Exit the reception area and go to the left. 2. Enter the Bus and Rideshare area. 3. Walk almost to the end of rideshare and you will see a sign on the left for a pedestrian crossing to Sands Expo. 4. Use the crosswalk to enter Venetian garage. Please be careful as you just enter the garage. There is a stop sign for the crosswalk, but some drivers blow through it. Coming from the other way you are easily visible. 5. Follow the crosswalk to the elevator bank. 6. Go to the 3rd floor. ( Some elevators continue up into the tower and have a different panel. ) 7. Following the signs, make 2 lefts after exiting the elevator area. 8. Follow the corridor toward the coffee bar. 9. About 10 yards before the coffee bar, the entrance to the FOOD COURT is on the right. 10. To the CASINO, do a jog around the coffee bar and there are escalators to the casino.
