How to Get a Free Shuttle Ride in Las Vegas
If you don't want to walk, you don't want to pay for a taxi and you really don't want to rent a car and deal with the crazy traffic, then your next best bet is one of Las Vegas free shuttles. The only catch for most of the shuttles on the list is that they leave from one casino to a sister casino. Yes, they still want your money and they want to keep it in the family.
However, if you know what Las Vegas attractions are close to these casinos, you can use the free shuttles to your advantage. If you plan to go to any of these casinos anyway, then this is a nice way to get to them and it beats walking when you're tired.
Here are some things you need to know about Las Vegas hotel shuttles:
