mopeds? any advice

Anyone ever rent the mopeds to ride around town? What's the easiest place to rent from. We will be staying at Flamingo. Maybe somewhere we could walk to?

I lived in Las VEgas for 12 years and have visited the city probably 200 times as a non-resident, so I feel a little qualified to say this:

Las Vegas, especially around the Strip, but even not around the Strip is probably the last place in the US Id want to ride a moped.

I've never seen a moped rider in Vegas,

I never hope to see one.

But I can tell you anyhow,

I'd rather see than be one.

I have been to Vegas many times and I have never seen a moped on the streets. I sure wouldnt ride one around there though. Lots of congestion and craziness on the strip.Good luck

Are we really talking about mopeds or are you asking about mobility scooters?

I've never seen a moped on the strip either. Just too crazy out there I think.

But if you want something that looks like a lot of fun check out Scoot City tours, last time I checked there was one for Fremont Street and the Strip.

You can sometimes find them on Groupon as well.

All kidding aside, I think you would be taking your life into your hands if you tried to ride a moped on the Strip.

I have rented the mopeds in Vegas about 3 years ago. Very fun and dangerous. Got kicked out of 3 parking garages. Not sure if they are still available to rent, but they were at one time next to the travelodge on the strip in that shopping center.

Ha thanks. My wife and I ride a Harley so I'm not very worried as I'm safe and aware of surrounding. We think it would be a blast to ride around and see things in a different way.....and maybe get kicked out of a parking lot or two.
