After discussion here, I used the WAX from downtown to the stop near the Tropicana. I had to use the cross over bridge over LV Blvd. and then walk over to the other bridge to cross Tropicana to NYNY. This was kind of inconvenient, but the 201 was there quickly and stops right next to the Orleans sign, just a few steps from one of the entrances. It was the same on the way back. If there was a better way using these 2 buses, I missed it. The Orleans.... it was OK. There are lots of older machines including my favorites, the original Goldfish and Outback Jack. I need to look at a floor plan of the casino area. Seems like there are several different wings, kind of a confusing layout. I spent about 3 hr. there and in that time, lost $40. Not a bad payout. It does seem kind of isolated out there, but there are the shuttles to get you to the strip & other Boyd properties. I'm not sure I would do this again from Downtown. Even using the WAX, it seemed to take up a good portion of the day.
