INFORMATION If you go



Published: Sun, January 27, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



GETTING THERE

Most major airlines and a number of charter carriers service McCarran International Airport, just a mile east of the southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard, or the Strip, as it is also known.

GETTING AROUND

Although the Strip is too long to see on foot, a rental car isn't necessary unless you plan on taking in some of the sites elsewhere. Many hotels offer complimentary shuttle service from the airport, and taxis ($16-$20 to the Strip), minibuses ($3.75 to the Strip) and limousines ($3-$4 for a shared ride to the Strip) are readily available at the airport.To get around Las Vegas Boulevard, the Citizens Area Transit provides regular bus service, as does the privately operated Las Vegas Strip Trolley. A free monorail links some properties, and free shuttles operate between different properties run by the same chain.Should you decide on a car, rentals are available at the airport and at most major hotels.

LODGING

There are hundreds of Las Vegas accommodations to choose from. The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority offers a search tool on its Web page at www.lasvegas24hours.com/.

DINING

Almost every casino offers an all-you-can-eat buffet -- and some are actually pretty good -- but Vegas has also gone upscale with its dining. There are big-name restaurants and big name chefs represented here, including Wolfgang Puck, Emeril Lagasse, Mark Miller and Stephan Pyles.

ACCESSIBILITY

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority puts out an "Access Las Vegas" guide with information for visitors with disabilities. Call (702) 892-0711 or visit www.lasvegas24hours.com.

MORE INFORMATION

Information packages are available from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, (702) 892-0711, or www.lasvegas24hours.com, or the Nevada Commission on Tourism, (800) 638-2328.
