Is Las Vegas good for solo travel?

Safety:

Safety:Safe

Las Vegas safety can depend largely on where you are. Popular and well-lit areas such as the Las Vegas Strip are generally safe due to the high level of security present. However, some parts of the city can be less safe especially late at night. Always be alert, aware of your surroundings, and consider taking a taxi or rideshare service rather than walking alone late at night.
Transport:

Transport:Easy

Las Vegas is quite navigable even for solo female travelers. The Strip is walkable and there are also buses and taxis readily available. However, some distances between attractions may be deceptive as the buildings are bigger than they appear. Overall, it's quite manageable with minimal reliance on navigation apps.
Things to do:

Things to do:Interesting

Las Vegas boasts an incredible array of activities that have broad appeal. The city is famous for its high-end casinos, which offer not just gambling, but also world-class entertainment in the form of concerts and shows. Shopping opportunities range from luxury brands on the famous Las Vegas Strip to quirky boutiques downtown. The city is also home to many excellent restaurants, from the decadent buffets Las Vegas is known for to chic bistros and a burgeoning food truck scene. Despite its desert location, Las Vegas is also surrounded by natural beauty with Red Rock Canyon, the Grand Canyon, and Hoover Dam all within day trip distance. However, destinations like STRAT Tower and the High Roller observation wheel provide ample opportunities for breathtaking city views without leaving the city. Lastly, although the city is generally safe for solo female travelers, one must always exercise common safety precautions, especially at night.
Food:

Food:Excellent

A culinary hub, Las Vegas offers a stunning variety of cuisines from every corner of the globe. Whether it's gourmet dining in luxury resorts, authentic ethnic eateries, or innovative food trucks, the food scene is colorful and rich. There's something to suit the palate of every traveler – from vegan to carnivorous options. Unique fusion food, fresh ingredients, attention to detail, and the overall experiential dining scene adds to this gastronomic paradise.
Budget:

Budget:Moderate

Las Vegas can be moderately budget-friendly depending upon your choices. Accommodation can range from luxurious resorts to budget motels. Food expenses also have a large range, with both high-end eateries and affordable options. Free or low-cost attractions such as the Bellagio Fountains and Fremont Street Experience are available. However, shows, clubs, and gambling can add up quickly if you choose to partake.

Almost all the restraunts where good, the hotels were great. I stayed at two. 1. Pink Flamingo, which was OK. 2. Harrahs which I seem to like it a little better. Everything is more expensive then the downtown strip. I actually got a room with living area, bedroom, and 2 bathrooms, then a bar in the living. Area. The rooms was cheaper then downtown strip, however of course they always charged 50 dollars per day for resort fee. And 40 dollars a day with vallet parking. I did not feel very safe. A man tried to grab me on the strip. Same man that tried to grab two other women the night before. In front of a lot of people. But people just ignore it and walk on. When reporting it to pink flamingo. They said sorry the strip is not our property. However when I was talking to staff the day before. It's a good area and we try our best to keep people not only inside but also outside. But when it comes down to it. I saw Carrie Underwood. I really loved her.

Been to Vegas countless times, it's generally safe. I prefer to stay center strip, near Ballys as its close to everytime. Top 3 eats Spago, Dave's Hot Chicken & Tacos El Gordo. Girls don't pay to get into night clubs, never but anything from anyone on the strip. I prefer uber here, I feel safer, and the cabs try to rip you off.

I went about a week before the F1 race for a work trip and had a blast. I went a little early to do some exploring of my own and while the strip is great, I’d your outdoorsy, I wouldn’t overlook Las Vegas! The Grand Canyon isn’t far, and if you like to hike or rock climb, Red Rocks park is just a 30 minute drive from the strip and had some of the best climbing I had in a while! Walking around at night felt perfectly safe (at practically any hour) on the strip, especially when you have the option to walk from casino to casino and get from one end of the strip to another without ever really leaving a well lit and crowded building. The food was delicious! And I’m a big speakeasy fan, there were a ton right on the strip that were a lot of fun to try and find!

Solo travel experience

I don't gamble and I rarely drink, but I loved Las Vegas while traveling alone. I never felt threatened there. I had a great time. Lots of interesting things to see and places to visit. I used the Deuce bus and Uber.

Solo travel experience

I made some partial solo trips there (a day or two alone, before a few close friends joined me). I can only comment on staying in the area, which I considered to be quite safe, but of course, exercise caution - probably the most important advice I would give is not to accept anything offered by strangers, especially in the streets.

I took a solo trip to Vegas in April and drank and had a great time. I went to Meow Wolf and Red Rock Canyon, and kayaked on the Colorado River. I used Uber from the airport. I never felt unsafe, but I also didn't stay out late.

I traveled alone to Vegas in March this year and had a great time. I saw 4 shows in the evening and walked to different hotels during the day, I didn't gamble, just watched sports, but ultimately I had a great time and felt very safe.

I've been alone in Vegas 3 times. I've never felt unsafe. I walked the strip at 2 in the morning and around Fremont at 5 in the morning. There are plenty of people traveling alone in Vegas.

Solo travel experience

I went alone once, and took my mother the next time. It was great. I booked a tour to Red Rock and another to the Grand Canyon, a Cirque du Soleil show, and used a hop on hop off bus as transport with a multi-day ticket. I went to Freemont for dinner and a show at Plaza. I found it safe and convenient, but keep your eyes open.

Solo travel experience

I have been to Vegas alone at least 2 dozen times. I live in Los Angeles, so it's an easy and cheap escape for me. I love going there by myself. I've never felt unsafe, but I would advise against drinking or taking drugs, as there are definitely people trying to take advantage of women who are in an altered state. I love going to Vegas alone because I can do everything according to my own schedule. I can watch the shows I want, gamble in the casino when I want, and eat where I want. Of course, fun is with other people, but coordinating a group can be a nightmare. Sometimes it's nice to just do what you feel like. Ride roller coasters, enjoy spa treatments, zipline on Fremont Street, lounge by the pool, play slots, watch shows, visit the shark reef at Mandalay Bay and just do whatever comes to mind!
