Las Vegas - Where to go, and is there an airport shuttle to LAX?I've been to Las Vegas once before in 2000. I did side trips to Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. I will be visiting Las Vegas in November on Thanksgiving for 3 nights before flying back home to Australia after spending 1.5 years doing a working holiday in Canada. Just need advice on the following:
- Which one is best to visit: Zion National Park or Bryce Canyon, or should I visit both? I will be joining a tour.
- David Copperfield or Penn & Teller: which show is better?
- Any other must see attractions in Las Vegas? It may be my last visit to Las Vegas since I don't plan to return to the US for a while after multiple trips to the country. I admit I don't remember too much of my previous visit to Las Vegas except for the nightclub I went to!
- Does anyone know of an airport shuttle from Las Vegas to LAX airport? I will be flying back to Australia on Sunday 25th November and can't seem to find anything online. If I was to take the Greyhound, which LA bus station is the closest to LAX and how much would a taxi cost to go to the airport from that station?
Thank you in advance!

1Flights from Las Vegas to LAX can cost less than $50 - why would you bother with Greyhound?

They are both excellent. Select a tour that only does both (and you might find a tour that does those two, but not the Grand Canyon South Rim, since you've been there). I agree with libby - see if you can find a flight that has the right timing for your connection to Australia - you'll save on cost but more particularly on inconvenience.

I suggest Southwest. They have these very cool orange buses. With wings!

6Thank you for all your suggestions. I will look into taking a flight from Vegas to LAX! And yes there is a Vegas based tour all day tour that goes to Zion and Bryce that I was eyeing. So I will definitely go and see both :)

7Flights were quite expensive so I ended up getting the American Lion bus which was only $25 from Vegas to LA. I actually paid $60 for a Greyhound bus from LA to Vegas so $25 is dirt cheap and that includes not even paying for baggage fees which I would have had to do if I had flown. Then when I arrived in LA, I got a taxi to Union Station where there is a LA flyaway bus. Costs $7 (they only accept credit/debit card) and takes 45 minutes to get to LAX.
By the way, David Copperfield was awesome!! Picks a lot of people from the audience to participate and is still a great magician!!

8If I paid up to $240.00 for yet another Las Vegas over-priced and over-hyped gig, I would definitely not want to be dragged up from the audience - the guy earns so much - he can have his own stooges surely.
