There’s few better ways to see a city than to get on its public transit system and meander along one of its arterial routes.
You get a chance to see some of the less touristy areas and meet new and interesting people. Sometimes you’ve got a target destination in mind, sometimes you’re just wandering.
I’ve always been enthralled with the process of learning a new city. Where to eat, shop, play like a local. Especially in a big tourist town like Vegas where most tourists won’t leave the Strip or Freemont for the length of their stay. There’s plenty if gems to find; you just have to get off that horribly beaten path and find them!
