    Thank you for your report! A couple comments.....downtown is swept and hosed down each a.m. also, but like the strip, by dusk it gets trashy too.
    Good for you to explore the bus system. The SDX requires that you buy your ticket before you get on. No one routinely checks once you're on, but they do have random RTC personnel on board occasionally who will look at everyone's ticket. I find it an easy way to access the strip and downtown.

    What is WAX ? I always use Deuce ... that's a great deal, $20 for three days of hopping on and off wherever, whenever! Enjoy your trip!!

    Westcliff Airport Express runs from McCarran to Fremont with very few stops. Catch it at MGM or NYNY for a twenty minute ride Downtown, two bucks cash. Returns from Downtown to Tropicana.

    Thanks for the great report!

    I get motion sickness, too. FWIW I pop a half a dramamine, more if the ride gets bumpy, sit in a seat up front or over the wings where there is less motion, book a window seat so I can see the horizon, order ginger ale from drink cart and I'm usually good. Plus, like you said only eat lightly before the flight.
