Walking distance from Wynn to Luxor

First Vegas trip in September as not as hot. I will be staying at Luxor and really want to limit the number cabs I take to one a day. My fitness is pretty good. The way I see it the longest walk I would have to do is from Luxor to Wynn or vice-versa. Could this be done is one hour. I am asking as everyone says the distance is greater than appears on Google maps

Its about 2 or 3 miles, and if you head directly to the wynn without stopping or passing go then you can probably do it in an hour. Even in September it can get pretty hot but there are numerous people selling water on the bridges to keep you hydrated, but it isn't physically tough.

Most of the fun is walking slowly and taking it all in and stopping for a drink or tw,o you will see once you get there that you don't really want to do it in an hour more like 2 or 3

You could walk straight from one to the other in one hour no probs. But you'll pass numerous distractions and temptations which could add to the time.

Its a good walk and I would give yourself 2 hours if your sightseeing... If you dont want to catch cabs just buy a 24 hour bus pass for $8.. Save you walking.. You could break up the walk with buses..

That would be an 3 to 4 hour roundtrip if your walking up and back

If you don't want to take cabs then a day/3 day pass for the bus is a good suggestion. On our last trip we walked from MGM to Stratosphere one day and the walk is not difficult but as said there are a lot of distractions on the way (we stopped at Peppermill for breakfast) we then got the bus back down.

I think walking is a great way of seeing hotels etc especially as its your first trip but its a lot longer than it looks .

It takes longer and seems longer and (to your feet) probably is longer because there is a THRONG OF TOURISTS the entire way you have to weave through, and some cross walks and detours.

When I stay at the Luxor (and I like the Spa at the Luxor btw) I buy a 3 day pass on the double decker bus. "The Duce"

The bad thing about the duce is how crowded it gets, having to stand, noticing people walking faster than the bus is going.

This problem is easy to overcome by anyone traversing from either Far End of the Strip. I think there is a northbound stop across from the Mandalay Bay, watch for it, if not the Tropicana one will do fine.

Board only far 'upstream" like that , or near Circus or Stratosphere for your return for example and you will always get a nice window seat and the bus does all the work (it won't be much faster if during peak hours, but certainly easier, cooler).

The 24 hr & 3 day bus passes are a great value. (No one rides the Monorail, it lacks convenience & is pricey.)

If you walk the whole thing, stick to the shady side of the street, duck inside for the stretches passing Caesars, Bellagio, Venetian/Palazzo, not much more weaving than the streets & just as much, if not more to see. It'll still be hot most of Sept in Vegas.

I saved my BEST suggestion for last. . .

Every 2 or 3 MGM built owned properties have a Free Tram connecting them. SO!

Start Tram at the Mandalay Bay or Luxor tram stop & ride to the end at Excalibur.

Walk to Monte Carlo

Tram from Monte Carlo to Vdara/Bellagio

Walk THRU Bellagio on to Mirage

Tram to Treasure Island

And you're there! I find this takes only slightly longer than making a focused athletic Hike of it & the forays into the casinos where necessary to enter or exit the free trams is a pleasant diversion. Particularly nice too if I've made purchases I have drag back down the strip.

FlemBrimstone has it right- you can traverse huge chunks of the strip indoors and on trams. Many neighboring casinos are connected through walkways and malls, so you're not obliged to cover the whole distance in the sun.

That said, if you have a reservation/show/appointment, I'd leave more than an hour to get from one end to the other in any case, or just take a cab, because there's inevitably construction or crowds or slot machines or something adding to your time, whether you stick to the sidewalks or cross through casinos.

I would definitely invest in the bus pass. The walk is longer than it looks for a variety of reasons. My fiancée and I go to the gym every day and we still could not have navigated the strip without those buses.
