From strip to Nellis...going Las Vegas Blvd...ok drive?

Is this a bad area? DT didn't look too appealing...does it get better or worse after this?

Thanks.!

Why not take 15?

The area between Stratosphere and downtown is the worst part of the drive.

I'm not sure how close Las Vegas Blvd will take you. I've never tried it.

I would suggest 15 north to Charleston Eastbound. Take Charleston all the way to Nellis (I don't kow if it is Street, Avenue, Blvd., or what); left turn onto Nellis. Take Nellis all the way to the Base, which is on your right. (Actually, I take 95 to Charleston, to Lamb, to Bonanza to Nellis, but that is more complicated.)

No bad areas to drive through on this route.
