Why Do I Need A Car in Las Vegas?
Let’s be honest – outside the Las Vegas Strip, public transit in Sin City is not that developed. In fact, if you are not planning to live within a five minute walking distance from your workplace, you should definitely take your car with you. Besides, getting around Vegas in a car is fairly easy once you get to know the city. Vegas streets are laid out in a grid (with several exceptions, such as Las Vegas Boulevard), which means that getting lost here is highly unlikely. In addition, Las Vegas is covered by a network of highways and freeways that make getting around much easier. These roads include:
– Interstate 15, which begins in Primm and passes through Las Vegas on the way to Mesquite;
– Interstate 515, which is a spur route of I-15;
– US 95, which passes through Las Vegas from north to south, connecting it to Carson City and Reno;
– Interstate 215, that acts as a part of the Las Vegas Beltway;
– Clark County 215, which is the other part of the beltway.
