Traveling to Las Vegas by car? You’re in luck when it comes to parking as there’s an abundance of options available to drivers. The Las Vegas Strip is home to many hotels, casinos, and parking garages. At famous hotels, you can choose between self-parking and valet parking, although some even offer free parking. If you can’t find a free spot, parking in Las Vegas is, fortunately, cheaper than bigger cities like San Francisco or New York.

Where to Find On-Street Parking
On-street parking is limited or next to none near the Vegas Strip and it’s recommended to leave your car in a garage. Downtown Las Vegas is a different story with on-street parking available for $1 an hour. Vehicles with handicap plates or place cards are allowed to park up to 4 hours for free at on-street parking meters.
Where to Find Parking Garages
If there’s one thing Las Vegas isn’t short of its casinos or parking garages. Guests staying in hotels will usually have the benefit of free parking in their respective hotels. Most hotel and casino parking garages are open to the public with self-parking costing $6 to $10 an hour and valet parking ranging from $15 to $30 an hour.
In Downtown Las Vegas, also known as “Old Vegas” the Freemont Street Experience parking garage is a popular location to park. With more than 1,300 spaces you’re almost guaranteed a spot and it’s only $3 an hour with a daily maximum of $12.
Where to Park for Free
The list of hotels offering free parking to the public is slowly shrinking, but there are still options on various parts of the Vegas Strip for non-hotel guests. The Venetian and Palazzo, Treasure Island, Wynn, Encore and Circus Circus hotels offer free parking. The Tropicana also offers free parking with the exception of when there are events at the T-Mobile Arena. Those going to Miracle Mile Shops, located in the heart of the Strip, have easy access to free parking at Planet Hollywood.
Park & Ride Locations
Las Vegas has the benefit of having less traffic congestion than larger cities. Unless you’re planning to drive down the Strip – which is an experience in it of its own – driving and parking throughout the city can be easy. For those who prefer to use a Park & Ride option, the RTC bus system operates Park & Ride lots where parking is free of charge to carpoolers and transit riders.
