How to get to Hard Rock from Strip?

I'm going in July for the 1st time, staying at the Flamingo. I collect beer glasses from Hard Rock Cafe's. Since I don't know my way around I'm wondering how do you get to Hard Rock from the strip? On maps it looks kind of far to walk. Thanks for any help.

Yes. Whatever you do, DON'T WALK! Made that mistake once. Probably a cab would be your best bet, I guess.

Take a cab. My hubby wanted to walk one time (because hes crazy) and we ended up hopping a cab. It shouldn't really cost that much.

while visiting the cafe be sure to visit the casino - a great place, i love the vibe, memorabilia. the cafe is not part of the HR hotel or casino - it is in the parking lot.

I agree with the others; cab. We cabbed it to/from the HRH all over the strip. It was about $8-$9 to MGM. I think it was about $11-12 from T.I.

The area west of the HRH on Harmon looked like it could be a little dicey at night.

Take a cab, MAKE SURE to ask them to take the back way (Flamingo to koval to harmon I believe) or they will run up the meter like nobodies business.

Count me among those who tried to walk from the strip to Hard Rock on our very first trip to Vegas. The map showed it only a couple blocks off the strip . . . yeah . . . right . . . and just HOW long are those blocks??

Cab is the way to go.

Walking is no problem if your fit.

It took me 25 minutes from the Flamingo.

Turn east on Flamingo road (Ballys on one side and Bills the other)

Continue walking east until you see Terribles hotel,turn South on Paradise road.

Continue South and within minutes you will see the Big Hard Rock cafe guitar right in front of you.

The Hard Rock hotel is on the right a few yards before the cafe.

Its a very safe area to walk imo.

What is with the board's anti-walking bias? From Flamingo to the Hard Rock Cafe is 1.8 miles. Should take a fit person 30-40 minutes - nothing dicey or unsafe involved.

Now I realize many people don't want to talk that far. But it's not crazy to do so.

Note that the Cafe is not in the Hard Rock Hotel - but sits out in the parking lot.

It's not just the walk - it's a walk in July at 110 degrees. If you do it take a bottle of water or two with you just for the walk. You can walk it, but stay on the sidewalk, there are fences and construction etc. so that you usually cannot find a shortcut to get you there any easier.

My hubby convinced me to walk to Hard Rock from the strip...don't do it. Hardrock has a free shuttle service, that stops along the strip, we took the shuttle back for free, wish I would have found out about the shuttle before walking to the Hardrock. Just google Hardrock Cafe Las Vegas Shuttle for routes and stops
