By Car

I-15 links Vegas with Salt Lake City (northeast) and Los Angeles (via I-10) and San Diego (southwest). Highway 95 approaches from the bombed out desert northwest of town and from due south at I-40.

Getting into town is as easy as finding and heading north via the aptly named Paradise Road. Connecting to Las Vegas Boulevard or I-15 (the quick way into downtown) simply requires making a left turn at any of the major streets named after casinos (i.e. Tropicana, Flamingo etc.). Access I-215 from the airport if you are heading east to Lake Mead.

By Bus

Greyhound buses come and go from the station on Main Street to all points across the nation.

Bike

Surprisingly, bicycle travel is a popular and easy way to see the city and get from point to point. But considering the immense desert heat in the middle of summer it may not be your thing. For those who brave the elements, be sure to carry lots of water and check with a bike shop on the best routes around town. The local hills have some most excellent mountain biking trails.
