About
Stretching for over 4.2 miles, the most famous entertainment destination in the U.S. showcases an eclectic collection of mega hotels and resorts, glitzy casinos, lavish shopping malls, and Michelin-starred restaurants. The best way to enjoy the Strip is to stroll down the avenue and marvel at free spectacles like the dancing fountains of Bellagio and the erupting volcanoes of The Mirage. Or rest your legs by joining an open-top bus tour that cruises down the boulevard. For a more adventurous experience, splurge on a luxurious helicopter tour for a bird’s eye view of Las Vegas’ iconic landmarks. – Tripadvisor

    Why You Come to Las Vegas - Adult Playground of Lights, Shows and Meals
    We visited Las Vegas as the final part of our 8 couple Spring Break trip after seeing the Utah 5 national parks. I will say most of our group were not gamblers so we were looking for other attractions in the city and the Strip itself is a highlight. We stayed at the Paris Las Vegas, ate at many places along the Strip and saw two shows on the Strip, the Beatles Cirque du Solie and Matt Franco's Magic Show. Whether day or night there is always something to do here. This is why you come to Las Vegas in so many ways.

    Be prepared to walk.....a lot!
    It`s not really possible to sum up the strip in one review. 3 or 4 miles of huge casino resorts, free shows such as the Bellagio fountains & mirage volcano, (be quick, it `s going this year, cafe`s, bars, shops, etc are what`s on offer. Everywhere is further away than it looks, It can take 10 minutes to walk past just one of the big resorts. Wear comfortable shoes & clothes and stop off for drinks along the way, and if you decide to explore any of the big hotels, allow at least an hour for each. We enjoy picking a street-side cafe or bar and people-watching for a while before heading off to explore further.

    Amazing Experience
    Las Vegas is for everyone even if your not a gambler, we walked from hotel to hotel just enjoying the experience and air conditioning. Felt very safe all the time day and night. Make sure you check the times to see the fountains erupt at the Bellagio and the Volcano at the Mirage- amazing and not over crowded. Use Walgreens and CVS for cheaper drinks to take to take in your room than hotel prices, seems to be a thing that wandering around drinking is quite popular for all ages. Use the Deuce bus to Hop on and off, better to by a 3 day pass rather 24 hr pass. Do compare Uber prices to local taxi's as did not seem to be same charges as UK so not always cheaper. Be prepared to tip but we had amazing service everywhere so well worth it. There is a free tram from Mandela Bay to save a few foot steps if walking down to the Las Vegas Sign.

    A lot to explore along the Strip, but do it at night!
    Fun to walk or drive up and down the Strip, but walking should be during the evening time in July. Otherwise, it is so hot! It got to 107 degrees when we were there in mid-July. It is also nice to see it all lit up in the dark. Free parking is offered by only few hotels. The rest seem to have free parking for 1 hr. The hotels we parked at for free were Treasure Island, Venetian and Rio. The Strip is huge though.

    Tour the Strip!!!!
    When visiting Vegas the strip is a must! But not in heels!!!!! It's long and fun! The lights are gorgeous, the smells are ones you will never forget! And summer is monsoon season so pack an umbrella. We got caught in a severe thunderstorm and got soaked. But it made for great memories! The whole trip made for great memories!!!! And don't come on a tight budget. A 7 day all inclusive trip to Vegas for 2 or more people will cost around 5 grand. It was a once in a lifetime trip for me and unforgettable. I will reminisce on this trip for the rest of my life!!!

    Quintessential Las Vegas
    The entire 4-mile Strip on Las Vegas Boulevard is completely lined with upscale Hotels and Casinos. The bright neon lighting can be quite blinding at night. But other than Casinos, the Hotels are also Resorts and Venues for Live Performances – many of which sell out months ahead. The architecture everywhere is modern and contemporary, and each Hotel is a unique landmark with mini versions of world-famous places replicated accurately to the minutest detail. Each and every hotel that you visit is worth the time that you spend exploring it. During our several visits in the last few decades, we have traversed this Strip – from The Stratosphere on one end to the Mandalay Bay on the other. We have walked, taken the Tour Bus, and taken Uber to visit several venues. An absolute “Must Visit” – at least once in your lifetime.

    Fun times in Vegas
    We had an absolute blast on the strip. It gets a bad reputation because of the hustle and bustle and people trying to hand you stuff, but honestly, you just gotta have thick skin. I kept walking to avoid getting handed anything and always told the Flamingo girls no thank you for a picture. Don't take a picture with them unless you are ready to shell out about $100 for each girl. Seriously! We were heckled a few times, but I don't really care what people say to me or think about me, so I just kept it moving. If you take everything with a grain of salt, you will have an amazing time on the strip!

    Please don't bring kids
    #1 leave the kids at home. Take them to Disneyland. There was once a time many years ago that Vegas really welcomed kids, but that came and went. It is annoying to have kids on the strip or at pools where adults are scantily clad, drunk and talk like truckers. Adults want to cut loose and not worry that their actions will be seen by children.

    Sensational
    Absolutely wonderful, so many sights, sounds and spectacles. Despite being busy and a tourist hotspot I felt remarkably safe while here. Even when bucketing it down with rain it's a great place to be.

Visited from 22/06/23: One of the most famous roads on earth! The strip (aka Las Vegas Bvd) is the heart and soul of Las Vegas. Home to some of the most well known sights and locations in the infamous and glitzy Vegas. The strip is a very long stretch with the main focus from the Strat in the north to Mandalay Bay and the world famous "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign in the south. With so much to see and do, you will need several days to explore the hotels, attractions, shows and casinos on offer. Getting around on foot, public transit and road is very easy with most locations within moderate walking distance (with the aid of monorails and Ubers on occasion!). Its possible to explore the strip and enjoy all of the free entertainment on offer for at least a couple of days!

I haven't been to the strip since 1991. Holy s**t, have things changed. Every hotel and casino is enormous but beautiful. Very exciting place. We also enjoyed Downtown, the Freemont Street experience. Slotzilla was pretty good too

Casino after casino. Exactly what you’d expect for vegas. Just wish it wasn’t so long/inaccessible - the monorail needs significantly improving/signposting better. And some kind of summary of everything going on would be great, we only found out some shows we’d have liked when it was already too late. Would probably have given it 1 star.
But then saw it at night.
It genuinely came alive and really enjoyed the experience - it was like people wanted to be there instead of traipsing around in the heat

Our trip to the Las Vegas area was to visit the local canyons in Arizona, and Utah. Since we flew into Las Vegas, we stayed here one night and walked the famous Las Vegas Boulevard, also known as The Strip. Lots of imposing high rise casino hotels, each with their own interesting indoor sights. Gaudy and chintzy but worth a visit if you're here to see the grand splendor of the opulent and rich hotels and casinos.

Sadly today, it's filled with smokers and drinkers, loud and gross, and anything/everything that has to do with casinos is overpriced. A coffee at a Starbucks on the Strip is $7, and a foot-long Subway sandwich is $18 - I found this ridiculous. Instead, if you want a good meal, walk or drive a few miles off the strip to get your Starbucks coffee for $3.

We stayed off the strip in a gorgeous apartment-style hotel with free parking and all the amenities you could wish for. Walked 2 blocks to the Strip and got to see everything, but didn't have to deal with the noise and smells when it came to sleeping.

Bellagio Hotel is my favorite - with their fountain show every 30 minutes on the hour, great restaurants (we ate at the Harvest) and Chihuly glass exhibit.

All the casinos are different in their own way. We didn't gamble at all but had a nice enough time walking around and taking in the sights.

Love it or hate it, The Las Vegas Strip is iconic. There is nowhere quite like it. Yes, it is very busy, quite tacky, loud, overpriced and brutally hot during the summer months. However, where are you going to find the 12 largest hotels in the US all on one street (and 12 of the 20 largest hotels in the world). Great restaurants, countless bars and clubs, and endless entertainment options. Even if you don't gamble a penny, you can find so much to do. Some of the most lavish pool complexes can be found here. Make sure you watch a performance of the Fountains of Bellagio especially at night, wander through The Forum Shops at Caesars and check out St Mark's Square with actual gondolas on the canals at The Venetian. And all of that is free. Just walking up and down The Strip taking in the bright lights and enjoying the amazing people watching is so worth it. And all of this is going on 24/7! With that said, the city can be exhausting. Set a daily limit on how much you are willing to lose should you decide to gamble while here. Also, you really only need 2-3 good days and nights when in Vegas. Unless you are doing other sightseeing at the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead or Red Rock Canyon, it can be complete sensory overload and the city can exhaust you if you try to overindulge for more than 2 or 3 nights.

Very good place
Everyone knows about the Las Vegas Strip so to go and see it is really cool, as you can imagine though it is also super busy and a bit crazy. There are loads of highlights on the route so take some time to soak in the Vegas atmosphere.

This post mainly focuses on my experience with getting around on the Vegas Strip and Fremont Street.
I hadn't been to Vegas for about 12 years, so my husband and I went for a long weekend to celebrate our birthdays. We stayed in the Venetian, which was nice and so that part of our stay was positive for the most part. They don't have refrigerators other than the mini-bar, so don't overorder food. Also, no coffee makers is pretty common, plan to take a 10min elevator ride and walk to the nearest shop to buy a $8 coffee. We also went to a couple shows, several restaurants, and an Exhibition. There are a wide range of shows all over, and we had no problem finding some in our budget that we were excited about. We also made reservations at a nice restaurant that we knew would be quite expensive, but otherwise we would just browse menus (most restaurants post them in front) until we found something we wanted and could afford. Food and drinks in Vegas are just mega-ridiculous-expensive. Period. Know before you go.... have a BIG food/drink budget especially if you are going to want cocktails. It was pretty typical to find: $12/beer, $16-$20/wine, $18-$24/cocktail. Try to take advantage of happy hours if you can. It does start to wear you you after a while. Now for transportation. We had a great experience getting a $20 Uber from the airport to our hotel, dropped off right in front. That is where the easy ended. Getting around was extremely annoying. We tried multiple modes of transportation.

Walking: comfortable shoes are a must, remember it will take longer because you are pushing through crowds of people, plan on breathing in weed smoke every 20 feet (maybe you like that!), plan on people constantly handing you things you don't want, invading your personal space and asking you for money, and I personally would never bring my kids here. Oh, and also, everything is filthy... so always watch your step.

Monorail: you can get tickets, fairly cheap, on your phone or print them, but I found that many machines that print them weren't working. We also had trouble finding the stations through the maze of casinos. There were very few signs and those we found were not that helpful (small arrow pointing in a general direction and then the signs would stop). Also important to know that there are not that many stations, so depending on where you are staying/going this may or may not be a good option. For example, the monorail does not go to Fremont Street. Once we actually got to the station, the monorail itself was fast, comfortable, and basically empty.

Duce Bus(runs from the far south end of the strip all the way to Fremont street and back): Cheap tickets that you get on your phone or print at the bus stop. The bus stops are easy to find and pretty frequently spaced along the street. The bus was very crowded every time we rode, smelled like weed and was stuffy, but was fairly clean and comfortable. We never had to walk far to a bus stop, but would wait 20-30 minutes for it to get there. Also, had a very bad experience one night, we were trying to catch the bus to come back from Fremont street so we walked to the nearest stop we could find (it was dark and we didn't feel safe wandering too far) which was on the northbound side. We figured it was a loop, and that the bus would go one more stop and turn around. This did NOT happen! We got picked up, taken 1 block, then kicked off. We had to run 2 blocks to southbound bus stop so we could catch the bus we had just departed to pick us up again. It was frustrating to say the least (why didn't she let us know??? did she really think we were only going a block!). I will also note that I saw other buses, like an open-air bus, but I am guessing its a tour or something.

Uber: The more expensive, supposed to be the most convenient option. And it CAN be, but you must understand some things. Uber drivers do not pick people up in the main drop off/valet area in front of the casino lobby. They seem to always have a separate "ride-share" pickup location much further off the beaten path. Again with the signs... do your best to follow the "ride share signs" if you can find them. The OTHER thing about uber... if you are trying to get an uber right after a large event, it will take forever and we even had several fall through because of the mass chaos. We left dinner at the MGM and decided to call an uber since our hotel was at the opposite end of the strip. We quickly noticed hundreds of people who all clearly had just gotten out of some very large music event and there is honestly no rhyme or reason to how the pick-up cars come through. Many are real Ubers, many are people just trying to make a buck and offering rides (sketchy!) and tons of honking. We suffered through that for a while before taking the monorail, which was a bit out of the way but well worth it.

Overall, getting anywhere in this area just takes a really long time, so be prepared for that. I probably would have not cared as much if I could have been lugging around one of those massive souvenir cups full of a fruity rum concoction, but I was pregnant, so different story. If you are an easy-going, low-stress person with some disposable income... this will probably be an awesome trip. I mean, the lights, exciting entertainment options, and interesting people ARE pretty cool. If you are someone who gets stressed out I would say this: pick your hotel wisely, plan your activities/meals at the casino where you stay. At the Venetian, you could spend a whole day between the pool and the spa, shop till you drop, and never eat at the same place twice. And if you do decide to venture out, leave yourself plenty of time and have a positive attitude.
