Rental car parking

We will be staying at the Golden Nugget but check in isn't until 3pm so we are renting a car at airport as our flight arrives at 8:25 a.m. We thought we could drive down to the strip and hang out and maybe have lunch b4 heading to GN. On the strip I was wondering if we will have to pay to park or do some hotels have free parking even if your not staying there?

Most if not all Strip hotels have free self parking. You do not have to be a guest staying at the hotel to park there.

Your idea of staying down the Strip before check-in at GN is a good one.

You can also use valet parking at any hotel/casino on the strip. You don't have to be staying there. There is no charge for valet-you just pay a tip. On a recent trip, I usually gave a $5 tip each time I used valet. Some people tip less; some more.

About the valet parking tip, most people do not tip when they leave their car at the valet, but tip when they get the car back.

In all my years of going to Vegas, I have always had a car but never Valet parked,

Not sure why? TBH, I'm not sure how you go about it. I assume you just get out the car and leave the keys in and receive a ticket?????

Might give it a go next time we are at Caesars. I've done shorter sponsored walks for charity!

"I'm not sure how you go about it. I assume you just get out the car and leave the keys in and receive a ticket?????"

That's it more or less, drive up the valet parking lane, you normally just leave the keys in the car, they'll take the car and park it and give you a parking slip which you give the valets when you want the car.

The only downside in my view to valet is it can take a little while to get the car back at some times such as after a hotel show.

Since you have time why not go to red rock canyon? It's not far from the strip. Valley of fire is also beautiful and not far either!

If you have never been to vegas, take a drive up the Strip and view all the casino hotels Then go to one in the center , and have some walk throughs of different casinos. Mirage and Treasure Island ( while not center) are two of the easier to get from the self park to the casino. and to the Blvd. Some, e.g. PH , Wynn and others jave self parks that are a good distance from the front ( LV Blvd).
