SM is close to LAX, so fly out of there. LV only has one airport for larger jets, McCarran. American West has flights for $49, tax included. Greyhound charges $32 LAX-LAS with 7 day advance.

From Santa Monica you should either fly from LAX (Los Angeles International)--first choice, or Burbank--second choice.

Get a flight on Southwest Airlines, American Airlines, or America West--book at least 4 weeks ahead minimum for best rates and choices of flights. It's much better than Greyhound, since it's the difference between a 1 hour trip and a 5 to 6 hour trip each way.
