The Las Vegas Strip itself is definitely walkable, but it might take you a day or two to do the full stretch depending on how many bars you hit along the way. 😎
However, there are plenty of surrounding communities where you can walk comfortably that include a ton of great spots to shop, dine and explore. Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast, avid foodie, or shopaholic, there’s a little slice of heaven for everyone!
By the end of this article, you’ll have a better understanding of Las Vegas’ most walkable neighborhoods.
Summerlin is a beautiful community, and consistently wins one of the nation’s best master-planned communities in the United States – for good reason. There’s also many new developments in the area including the stunning Las Vegas Ballpark where you can catch a Las Vegas Aviator’s game (#protip: Tuesdays are dollar beer nights – you’re welcome), Downtown Summerlin filled with restaurants and shops, and more. Elysian at Tivoli is the epitome of a walkable community. Situated directly across the street of Tivoli Village, you’re able to walk across the street with over 50 shops, restaurants, and more. Not only that, but it’s next to Boca Park, where you can fulfill your Target runs on the daily, furnish your dream apartment with Living Spaces furniture and so much more.
That walk score though! Elysian at The District is the Henderson equivalent of Elysian at Tivoli. The property is nestled behind The District at Green Valley Ranch which offers the Henderson community a great shopping and dining experience in an outdoor setting. Walk to Whole Foods for your grocery runs, or grab happy hour at Bottiglia Cucina and Enoteca, where club members receive 20% off your entire bill.
Not only that, but you can walk a short distance to catch a Silver Knights game at the newly built arena, home to the Vegas Golden Knight’s affiliate team based in Henderson. For any avid bikers or runners alike, there are also plenty of beautiful trails that will take you as far as the eye can see!
Elysian at Centennial Hills is at the center of Centennial Hills, a new thriving community in the outskirts of Las Vegas. This Elysian property is a short distance away from a variety of shops, restaurants, and more. For any hikers or outdoor enthusiasts, it’s also a short distance from the picturesque Mt. Charleston, a popular hiking destination during the summer months to escape the scorching heat.
During the winter, it gets plenty of snow as well making it an ideal destination for any snow sports enthusiasts.
Centennial Hills has all the modern amenities you need with the mellow, low-key vibe you want. The property is close to the highway; 95 and the Bruce Woodbury Beltway cross through town. Cycling lovers can take advantage of the many bike lanes in this up-and-coming neighborhood, and laid-back community. Not only that, but from Centennial Center, to Tenaya Village, you’ll discover 950,000 square feet of department and boutique stores, restaurants, movie theaters and entertainment. Did someone say residential paradise?!
Home to our Elysian at Flamingo community, Spring Valley is an unincorporated town, home to those who like to #workhardplayhard. It’s a short distance to Summerlin and also flows into Chinatown which is home to some of the city’s best restaurants and hidden gems!
Truth be told, even though it’s not located on the Las Vegas Strip, the spirit of The Strip is infused into every inch of these luxury Summerlin apartments, and are within walking distance of many different shops and restaurants. After all, it’s just a few minutes away from Downtown Summerlin and just a short drive from the very best of Vegas. Even though it’s a short distance though, we recommend bringing a car so that you can truly experience the full area and all it has to offer!
LAS VEGAS STRIP
Even if you don’t believe in love at first sight, Elysian at Hughes Center® with its prime location right next to The Strip will sweep you right off your feet. This property is the strip-lovers dream. For anyone who doesn’t mind a walk, you can get to the strip in about 20 minutes. If that sounds too long for you, don’t worry! You can easily use rideshare services that will take 5 minutes to drop you off in The Strip’s epicenter.
It’s no wonder if you start your home search here, you may very well end it here, too. Think Architectural Digest meets Tatler meets Town and Country and you will begin to get the general gist. It’s perfect for anyone who travels for business or as a second home for anyone who travels to Vegas often for work and play. Enjoy resort-style living just like the properties on The Strip, all hassle-free. So don’t be surprised when you make this your home if every morning when you awaken, you pinch yourself because you honestly don’t believe you actually live here. Elysian at Hughes Center® works hard and parties harder.

What is the best way to get around Las Vegas?
It depends on where you want to go and what’s on your itinerary! If you want to strictly stay on the Las Vegas Strip, you can walk to just about anywhere. If you’re traveling during the hotter months, you might want to use a car or use rideshare services, but the rest of the year is mild enough where you can walk all day if you please!
If you want to get to the outskirts of Las Vegas to explore the Henderson, Summerlin, Centennial, or Spring Valley areas for example, your best and cheapest option would be to rent a car. Once you get to those areas there’s plenty to do within walking distance of those areas!
The Monorail runs from MGM Grand to Sahara and is a great way to travel up and down The Strip! You can purchase a single ride or 7 day pass, and locals receive a discount.
Las Vegas also has several free trams like the Mirage Treasure Island Tram that runs from Mirage to Treasure Island, the Aria Express Tram that runs from Bellagio, City Center, & Park MGM, and the Mandalay Bay Excalibur Tram that runs from (you guessed it!) Mandalay Bay to Excalibur.
Can you get around Las Vegas without a car?
Yes, in some areas like The Strip! However, if you want to venture out and explore the city like taking a scenic drive through Red Rock Canyon, escaping the heat in Mt. Charleston, or doing a Beer Crawl in the Arts District breweries, you will need to use rideshare services or rent your own car.
