Getting Around Summerlin
Getting around Summerlin is easiest if you have your own vehicle. However, if you want to take in the town under your own steam, this award-winning master-planned community has bike paths, leisurely walking paths and scenic hiking trails. Special lanes for cyclists are on almost every major road and highway. The trail system is unique in a community of this kind. When completed it will have 200 miles of trails that will eventually connect to 2,000 regional trails in Nevada.
For destinations within Summerlin, there are limousine services available that can take you to and from the spas and golf courses, which are just two of the many attractions that Summerlin holds for you.
Numerous taxi services are in Summerlin, but shop around for the best deal. Henderson's Taxi Service is moderately priced. The beautiful Spring Mountains and natural wonder, Red Rock Canyon Conservation area are nearby. Why not leave the driving to someone else and hire a personal sedan to take you through? Downtown Las Vegas is just a little more than twenty minutes drive by the 95 and 215 freeways. Or, leave your car at the "Park and Ride" on Las Vegas Blvd in Summerlin and ride "the Deuce", one of the new double decker buses and visit the glitter of Vegas. There are stops all along the famed "strip". You can pay one fare and hop on and off all day.
Also, hotels, such as the JW Marriott offer their own shuttle services from the airport, but it is only one-way and does require a reservation. You may choose to rent a car or hire a taxi at the airport. If you arrive at the Bus Depot in Las Vegas, by Greyhound or Gray line, for instance, you can get an express bus to Summerlin via the RTC (Regional Transportation Commission) which is part of Las Vegas' mass transit system. The RTC also offers senior services.
