Walkways are always packed, day or night on the Las Vegas Strip. The streets are well-lit and there are many elevated crossovers making it safe and easy to traverse the busy Las Vegas Blvd.
The Strip is divided into three sections. If you want to visit another casino in the same area, walking is certainly an option. However, if you wish to navigate from the South Strip to the North Strip, you will need to take a taxi, private car or bus.

Chain pharmacies (CVS Pharmacy, Rite Aid Pharmacy, Walgreens, etc) as well as smaller neighborhood ones operate in Las Vegas. Working hours may vary, but a few are open 24/7. Most larger pharmacies sell prescription as well as over the counter medicine. Pharmacy signs are often in red and white and pharmacies themselves may often be found inside department stores.
Except for a special evening of dinner and dancing, visitors to Las Vegas dress very casually. Be sure to bring comfortable shoes. Ladies, don’t carry a large purse, it will only get in the way when you are gambling. Bring a ”fanny pack” to carry identification, credit cards and money. Don’t forget the swimming suits. Always carry proper identification with you, especially when gambling.
