My Las Vegas Convention Center Station Experience:
If you are travelling North on the monorail, The Las Vegas Convention Center Station is a pleasant surprise because, for the first time on your monorail journey, you are in front of your destination instead of behind it. No fumbling through rear parking structures or struggling to get your bearings here! Just exit the train, head downstairs and take the walkway to the Convention Center, which is conveniently right in front of your face.

…and take the walkway to the Convention Center. See? Easy!

It took me about 3 minutes to get to the South Hall, where my convention was. The North Hall is a minute or two further, but what are you gonna do? The Courtyard by Marriott is right across Paradise Road from the Las Vegas Convention Center Station. You can make it to that hotel, as well as the Renaissance and maybe the Residence Inn, in less than ten minutes.

I feel like I should have more to say about this stop, as it is such an important one. But that’s really all there is to it! There’s the Convention Center right in front of your face, easy like Sunday morning. Taking the Las Vegas Monorail to and especially from the Las Vegas Convention Center just makes all the sense in the world. You’ll save money and avoid the cab lines back to The Strip.

 

My Favorite Thing: That table in the exhibit hall that is giving away free beer. Every convention has one!

It’s even Sierra Nevada, yum!
