Have you tried to make any travel plans lately? If you have, you probably have searched and searched the web till your head was spinning. What you need to do is find a good professional consultant. A good travel consultant can find you deals that are not available on the web and can save you hundreds of dollars on cruises and tours. They can also give you great advice for your trip, such as little known places to visit at your destination. 

There has been lots of talk as of late that Travel Agents are a dying breed. Not so, they are not only alive and kicking, but more and more travelers are turing to them for help in booking their vacation travel. So a tip to the savvy traveler or the novice traveler, use a travel agent and save lots of time and money!

There is all types of ways to get around the City of Las Vegas and the Strip. But did you know that there are numerous ways to get around for free.  The following are just a few ways.

The Barbary Coast Casino offers a free shuttle between the Orleans Hotel, Gold Coast Hotel and the Barbary Coast. The shuttles run every 20 to 30 minutes from 9AM to Midnight. 

If you love trams like I do, then you will enjoy the two free trams on the Strip. The first one runs between Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay. There is a local tram that makes all three stops and there is also an express tram that runs nonstop from Mandalay Bay to Excalibur. The trams run every 3 to 7 minutes 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. The second free tram runs between the Mirage and Treasure Island. The shuttle runs every 10 min and starts at 9AM and ends at Midnight.

The Rio Suites has free shuttle service between Caesar’s Palace, Bally’s, Paris and Harrah’s. The shuttles run every 30 minutes. The Shuttle’s start at 10AM and run to 1AM Monday thru Wednesday and to 4AM on Thursday and Sunday.

I hope you try these free ways to get around Las Vegas. I have and I really had fun! Let me know if you try it by leaving a comment.
