Maybe your phone died on your Las Vegas vacation. Or maybe you need to pick up a new camera, Ipad, headphones, etc., after losing them after a wild night on the Strip. Whatever your electronics need may be, Best Buy always has you covered,
There are nine Best Buy stores in the Las Vegas area, including one fairly close to the Las Vegas Strip. In addition, there are several of the Best Buy self-serve kiosk stands sprinkled throughout a few of the casino/resorts up and down the Strip. (More on that below).
The closest Best Buy to the Las Vegas Strip is about 10 minutes away
The closest regular Best Buy store to the Las Vegas Strip however, is the store at on S. Maryland Parkway, approximately 2 and ½ miles east of Las Vegas Boulevard. It will take you just over ten minutes to get there from the Strip under normal traffic conditions.
This store is one of the traditional, large big-box Best Buy stores. Its full address is as follows:
3820 S. Maryland Parkway
Las Vegas, NV. 89110
Phone (702) 732-8283
Sunday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Monday – Saturday: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
(Here’s a map of the closest Best Buy to the Strip)
From most casino/hotels along the Strip, you’ll want to go to east on E. Flamingo Road.

This is the road you’ll want to take if you are leaving from Caesars Palace, the Flamingo, Linq, Bellagio, Aria, Paris/Ballys, Planet Hollywood, Monte Carlo, MGM Grand and all other points south.
Once on E. Flamingo Road, you’ll go east for exactly 2 miles, then take a left (North) on S. Maryland Parkway.
The Best Buy will less than ½ mile away up on your right.
From North Strip Hotels and Casinos
Those of you staying on the more North end of the Strip (Venetian, Wynn, Encore, Treasure Island, Circus Circus, SLS, Stratosphere, etc), will want to take Sands Avenue East.
About a half mile east of the Strip, Sands Avenue turns into E. Twain Avenue. Either way, you’ll continue east to S. Maryland Parkway, where you’ll take a right.
The Boulevard Mall will be on your left, however go past this mall, past the Vons on your right, and take a left hand turn on Katie Avenue. The Best Buy will be there in front of you on your right.
Other Best Buy Stores in Las Vegas
As I mentioned, there are a total of eight Best Buy stores in the Las Vegas area. Some of these, however are the Best Buy Mobile stores.
As you may know, these are much smaller, in-mall stores that have far less selection than the larger big-box regular, traditional Best Buy stores we all are familiar with.
