It’s 1.15 miles from the Linq to the Monte Carlo
By Steve Beauregard
Walking along the Las Vegas Strip the entire way, it’s 1.15 miles from the Linq Hotel & Casino to the front doors of the Monte Carlo. It would take you around thirty-five 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 Monte Carlo is to take cross the Strip on over to Caesars Palace, then follow the sidewalk south all the way.
This route takes you up and on a couple of pedestrian bridges, to the Bellagio and then to the City Center complex, before reaching the north entrance of Monte Carlo.
Tram or Monorail from the Linq to Monte Carlo
There is neither a monorail nor tram that takes you from the Linq to Monte Carlo, however you can take a free tram from the Bellagio directly to Monte Carlo.
To do so, walk along the aforementioned route 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 through the City Center development and on to the Monte Carlo. It’s actually called the Monte Carlo/Aria station, as the tram station straddles entrances to both resorts.
Because the tram takes you right to Monte Carlo, using it from the Linq will save you .35 miles of walking – not an insignificant distance if walking 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 Monte Carlo.
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 Monte Carlo is the next casino up the Strip.
Bus (Deuce) from the Linq to Monte Carlo
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 Monte Carlo. (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 Monte Carlo, where the Deuce stops right in front of the resort.
Taxi from the Linq to Monte Carlo
A taxi ride from the Linq to the Monte Carlo would run you in the $11 range.
Driving from the Linq to Monte Carlo
At just about 1 and 1/2 mile driving distance, it would only take you about ten minutes to get to Monte Carlo 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.
Right after you past the Monte Carlo, take a right on “Rue de Monte Carlo” which is French for Rue de Monte Carlo. About 1,000 feet west of the Strip, you’ll take a right on the first street you see after the valet parking. The signs will point you to the Monte Carlo’s self-parking garage.
