In other regions, this distance could easily be covered on foot. However, in Las Vegas, the climate makes walking impractical and the common way to get around is by some form of vehicle transport.
As in other parts of the USA, cars are fairly cheap to rent. This option is recommendable if you want to do you own self-guided excursions, for example to the Grand Canyon, or if you want to save money by staying in accommodation far from the tourist centre.
Car rental is not necessary for moving around the city centre, as taxis are not especially expensive and distances are relatively short.
It is useful to know that car parks in all the large hotels are free.
