Avoid the crowds. Take the not-so-scenic tour. Suck in the air-conditioning. Enjoy having no problem whatsoever finding a seat. Rejoice in pulling into the back of the Imperial Palace, or the Sahara Station, which remains open despite the casino being closed. For your $5, you can ride the Las Vegas Monorail from the Sahara to the MGM in about 15 minutes. Take that, stuck-in-traffic-on-the-Strip drivers! LVMonorail.com.
