Update: July 2017
Uber and Lyft are now picking up all over Vegas. Operations started on September 15, 2015 and so far all is going smoothly. There are no restricted areas for use of the ride share services. Both Services are operating at the McCarran Airport.
Now Uber has drastically cut prices many times. The base fare that was 2.40 is now 1.12, the price per mile was 1.85 is now .675, the per minute price was .30 is now .1125. A Service fee of 1.38 and booking fee of 1.90 will be added to every trip. There is also an Airport fee of 2.45. Lyft is mostly the same except You can tip on the Lyft App but cannot on Uber. Drivers are allowed to take cash tips on either service. The low rates have made it near impossible for drivers to make a profit and even though that is terrible for Them it is great for the riders. You will see that service is fantastic, cars are ready to pick You up all over Vegas. A short ride to the Airport from a nearby hotel will typically cost 12-13 dollars but only about 4.50 of that will go to the driver because of all the fees that are added. Uber is expected to add the tipping feature to their app by the end of July 2017.
An Uber driver was stormed by the Nevada Taxi Authority like He was some kind of a criminal. Five cars took Him down, two officers were wearing ski mask like they were taking down a terrorist. The Uber driver had no bombs, drugs, guns or stolen property but He was treated as such. The officers put His car on a tow truck and issued Him a ticket.

With more shows to choose from than any other City in the World, You might feel overwhelmed deciding on one. But if You narrow Your preference to a category, You can make Your decision much easier. If Your interest is in a Cirque du soleil show, why browse through the Comedy and Adult shows? If You want to see Britney or Mariah or JLo just browse the Concerts and headliners.
Don't like huge theaters and big crowds? Choose an afternoon Show or a half price show.
A Dinner and Show combo is a great value and saves time to do other things that day.
