Walking along the Las Vegas Strip the entire way, it’s 1.2 miles from the Linq Hotel & Casino to the front doors of the Park MGM Hotel & Casino. It would take you around thirty minutes to walk it.
If you’re going to walk the entire way, measurements from aerial views show that the best and fastest walking way to get from the Linq to the Park MGM is to follow the eastern-Strip sidewalk (the one in front of the Linq), and take that south just past Planet Hollywood to Harmon corner.
From there, you’ll use the pedestrian overpass at Harmon Corner towards the Cosmopolitan, then then follow the sidewalk south all the way.
Tram or Monorail from the Linq to Park MGM
There is neither a monorail nor tram that takes you from the Linq to Park MGM, however you can take a free tram from the Bellagio directly to Park MGM.
To do so, skip the map above and use the pedestrian overpass at the Cromwell (the corner of the Flamingo and the Strip), to get inside the Bellagio. Once inside from the pedestrian bridge from Caesars Palace, take a right through the expansive casino, to the front desk, past the conservatory and shops to the tram station at the extreme south east end of the resort. It’s exactly 8/10th of a mile to the tram station from the front doors of the Linq.
Once on this complimentary monorail, you’ll enjoy a quick ride past the Crystal shopping center and Aria and on to Park MGM. It’s actually called the Park MGM/Aria station, as the tram station straddles entrances to both resorts.
Because the tram takes you right to Park MGM, using it from the Linq will save you about a 1/3rd of a mile walking – not an insignificant distance if walking outside in the Las Vegas summer.
The monorail that would have you do the least amount of walking is the Las Vegas Monorail. You do have to pay to ride this however. (Go here for Las Vegas Monorail pass prices).
The LV Monorail has a station at the Linq, and stops at the MGM Grand. From the MGM Grand monorail station, it’s a .61 mile walk to the front doors of the Park MGM.
To do this, you’d want to exit the MGM Grand at the Strip, then use the pedestrian bridge that takes you to the New York – New York. From there, the Park MGM is the next casino up the Strip.
Bus (Deuce) from the Linq to Park MGM
The Las Vegas Strip has a bus system that transports visitors up and down the Strip very inexpensively. It’s called the “Deuce” and it’s probably the easiest, fastest way to get from the Linq Resort and Casino to the Park MGM. (Go here to see how much does it cost to ride the Deuce bus in Las Vegas).
The closest Deuce bus stop to the Linq hotel is directly across the Strip, in front of Caesars Palace.
From there, it’s just a ten minute bus ride to the Park MGM, where the Deuce stops right in front of the resort.
Taxi and Uber/Lyft from the Linq to Park MGM
A taxi ride from the Linq to the Park MGM would run you in the $12 range while an UberX estiamte is around $9.
Driving from the Linq to Park MGM
At just about 1 and 1/2 mile driving distance, it would only take you about ten minutes to get to Park MGM from the parking garage at the Linq.
When leaving the self-park area behind the Linq, you’ll wind up on Koval Street, east of the resort. From there, you’ll want to take a right on Flamingo, to get back on the Strip, where you’ll want to head south (taking a left on the Strip).
Right after you past the Park MGM, take a right on Park Avenue – the street inbetween the Park MGM and NY-NY Casino.
About 1,000 feet west of the Strip, (before you get to T-Mobile Arena), you’ll take a right on the first street you see after the valet parking. The signs will point you to the Park MGM self-parking garage.
