McCarran International Airport
This airport was originally opened in 1942 by George Crockett, a descendent of Davy Crockett. It was purchased by Clark County thereafter. The airport has four sets of gates, and over 87,000 passengers a day utilize its services. A multi-level covered parking garage is attached to the main building by land bridge. A large selection of store fronts and restaurants are located inside the terminal, which features four concourses, A through D. Handicapped assistance is available, and moving walkways are placed throughout the building.
As a first time flyer, I found this airport confusing upon arrival, but easy when departing. The signage needs some improvement. Everyone was helpful, and pointed me in the right direction. I arrived two hours early with plenty of time to spare, so the slot machines passed the time quickly.
First of all, stay away from the slots. They are the tightest slots in all of Nevada. If you want to waste your money, waste it on a beer.
As far as the rest of the airport, it is good in the fundamentals such as getting you in and out with a minimum of hassle and waiting on the tarmac, etc. They get you your bags o.k. and there are plenty of buses, limo�s and cabs to get you anywhere.
This airport is by-far the largest I have ever seen. It seems like the busyiest to. They have a lot of places to choose from. Bookstores, resturants, lounges, you name it they got it. They also have a fitness center in the airport. How cool is that?The airport has onsite rent-a-car places such as Hertz,Avis,Alamo,Enterprise,Budget, and more.I can't wait to fly back.
