honestly depends on your plans. are you planning to go off the strip? grand canyon ect ect.

if your just planning on going up and down the strip probably not. but if I understand it right,car rentals are the cheapest in vegas vs anyplace else.

No you don't need to, but you may want too if you want to venture off the strip and see what the area has to offer other than tourist stuff.

Yes, the strip will keep you busy. A big part of the excitement is "casino hopping". The walking will tire you out quickly, but it's worth it. I found that when I did have a rental car, I felt obligated to drive it everywhere, which kind of ruined the experience of the strip....Unless you really need a car, I wouldn't bother.

Don't get a car. At the MIrage you are right in the middle of the strip. You can walk to pretty much any hotel that you may want to see. Keep in mind that it wil be a lot of walking.....but the sightseeing and people watching make it all very worth while. If you have a car, by the time you self park at a hotel and walk to the lobby of the property... you have viewed everything under a dark roof. You need to approach the hotels from the strip, Trust me you will see so much more.

A taxi is the best way to get to and from the airport. It will cost you around 15.00 one way.

Get a taxi from the airport to your hotel. Shuttle is a waste of time and money if there are 2 or more in your party.

You say the shuttle is a waste for 2 or more. How about if you're solo?

Skip the taxi - get a limo or a town car. No line.
