It’s exactly 1.61 miles from the main entrance of the Luxor to Bally’s when walking the entire way along the Las Vegas Strip. Not using trams or monorails, it would take you just over 1/2 hour to walk between the two resorts, assuming you didn’t make any stops.
To walk the entire way, just head out the east side entrance of the Luxor, then go north on the Las Vegas Strip sidewalk towards the Excalibur.
Alternatively, you could hop on the complimentary shuttle from Luxor to Excalibur, which is located in front of the Luxor.
Either way, once you’re at the Excalibur, (Go here for an Excalibur review, resort fee, parking info, etc), you’ll want to follow the path and bridge over to the Tropicana Hotel and Casino then onto the MGM Grand side.
From there, you’ll follow the sidewalk back down to the Strip level, around the MGM Grand, and the straight shot on the sidewalk to Bally’s. As mentioned earlier, it’s a total walk of 1.61 miles from the Luxor. This includes the distances you have to cover going up and around pedestrian bridges, etc.
Bus -the Deuce – from the Luxor to Bally’s
Taking the bus from the Luxor to Bally’s is a pretty easy option, as there are stops almost directly in front of both resorts.
There’s a bus stop across the Strip from the Luxor, about a five minute walk away. Cross the road at Mandalay Bay Road, just south of the hotel. The bus stop will be on your left.
Once there, you can take either the Deuce or SDX bus, as both lines will get you there. If you have the option, take the SDX, as it makes fewer stops, and thus, will get you there faster than the Deuce bus. The SDX ride is about 8 minutes from the Luxor, versus a 12 minute bus ride on the Deuce.
You’ll get off at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino bus stop. From there it is just about a 400 foot walk on the Strip sidewalk to the people mover in front of Bally’s, and about 700 feet or so to the front inside door at Bally’s.

Tram or Monorail from Luxor to Bally’s
There is not a continuous monorail from the Luxor to Bally’s. There is, however, a station at the nearby MGM Grand that will drop you off right at the back side of Bally’s.
(Go here to find out how much does it cost to ride the Las Vegas Monorail.)
You’ll still have a little bit of walking, (even when taking the free tram to the Excalibur), as it is just under a 1/2 mile walk to get to the MGM Grand Monorail station from the Excalibur tram stop.
Like I said though, the LV Monorail very conveniently stops right at Bally’s, thus saving you a long Strip-sidewalk jaunt in the Las Vegas heat.
Taxi from Luxor to Bally’s
At just about two miles door-to-door, a cab ride from the Luxor to Bally’s will run you in the $11 to $12 range.
Driving from Luxor to Bally’s
It’s almost exactly two miles from the parking area behind the Luxor to the Bally’s self-parking garage when going up the Las Vegas Strip. Driving between the two resorts would take you from ten to 15 minutes, contingent upon how busy the Strip is at that time.
Here’s how to get to the parking garage at Bally’s:
When leaving the Luxor, you’ll head north on the Strip. You’ll want to take a right (going east) on E. Flamingo Road, which is the street right past Bally’s. (Bally’s sits on the intersection of the Strip and E. Flamingo).
Immediately on your right, you’ll see signs pointing you to take a right into Bally’s. So you won’t be on E. Flamingo Road very long – the turnoff is just after you go under the pedestrian bridge. You’ll see signs that pretty clearly mark where to turn to get to the self-parking area. However, if you prefer to use the valet, this is also the same area, so watch for the valet parking sign as well.
