Luxor to Stratosphere with kids

Hi, we are a family of 5 starting our road trip with a day and night in Vegas next year.

We will be staying at the Luxor(not the best I know, but amazing for the kids to stay in a pyramid, and it's only 2 nights and Cheap)We plan to see the Titanic exhibit there and after lunch head down towards the Bellagio fountains, about a 30 min walk. I plan to have dinner at the top of the Stratosphere but

don't know the best way from Bellagio, how would I get a taxi for 5 of us?

Thanks for any advice,


San Diego...

Yes cab is by far the easiest way.

Walk to the cab line at the entrance to the Bellagio, get in a cab, and when the driver asks where you want to go, answer The Stratosphere. 5 people can get in a cab at the B. Or you can cross the street (via the bridge) and do the same at Bally's as well. Or go next door to the Cosmo and do the same. All the hotels have designated cab lines.

Some of the cabs are vans so they take more people than a regular cab.

If you stay in tge pyramid, request rooms between floors between 20 & 25. .you get a good view. Don't get talked into an upgrade to the tower rooms. The tower rooms are an upgrade, but the Pyramid can only be accessed " if you stay in the Pyramid". The " inclinators ( side way moving elevators) require pass keys "

5 is the maximum allowed in a cab in Las Vegas. You must catch cabs at hotels, they are not allowed to stop or pick up passengers from the street.

You say you will have a car (road trip)?

Valet parking and self parking are both free at all of the hotels in Vegas. If you do valet, tip a few bucks upon receipt of car.

Traffic may be a bit slow on the strip, but it is an easy drive.
