    Take a stroll down 'The Strip'...

    The Strip

    Favorite thing: Take a stroll down 'The Strip' which is Las Vegas Blvd. I recommend that you walk the whole length. It is probably about 1.5 miles long from one end to the other end. There is soooo much to see now! All the hotels are so lavishly decorated that you almost feel like you're in Disneyland or on a movie set! Everything from the Medieval times theme at the Excalibur to exotic Aladdin, that takes you to the Middle East. Drinking in public is LEGAL in Vegas as long as it is not in a glass container so feel free to cruise from hotel to hotel w/ a plastic cup filled w/ your favorite libation in hand. :)

    Fondest memory: Partying with a huge group of friends over the Halloween weekend and getting absolutely wasted! It was a fun time had by all! It's nice when every 10 steps you walk, you run into friends or other acquaintances!

    Lots of distractions....

    Las Vegas Blvd at Flamingo

    Favorite thing: There are so many things here competing for your attention you may not know where to start. Keep your wits about you, decide what your priorities are and know your limits. If you come for the gambling, really know your limits. And at least try to get out of the casinos occassionally to enjoy our other stuff.

    Fondest memory: When I'm traveling, the one thing I miss most about LV is the fact that this is the real 24 hour town. I like being able to to out to eat at 10-11p without any problems. Most of the cities I visit really seem to be very limited on choices for dinner at 11p. After living here for a while, it almost seems like all the other cities close up tight after 9pm

  • Do the Vegas Strip Marathon

    by UncleJeff Updated Mar 7, 2003

    Favorite thing: With Comfortable Shoes and whatever else you need, walk as much as the strip (not in the heat) as you can.. it is better (and more risky) at night, stay on the sidewalk.. do not accept flyers and feel free to drink as you go..

    Great way to walk -- The Strip

    by kylamees Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: The Strip - main street in Las Vegas officially called Las vegas Boulevard is the best way to walk from South to North Downtown. It´s long way, but I enjoyed it first time, just walking from MGM Grand to Stratosphere Tower. Next time, if You can´t walk so much, take a bus. It´s only $2. taxi is cheap, too, it´s about the same price to take a taxi if You are 3 or more.

    Fondest memory: Fondest memory is the world´s greatest water.theatre The "O" at Bellagio

    by snmred Written Sep 12, 2002

    Favorite thing: Pay the extra money and stay at a hotel on the strip. It's worth it just for what all the hotels have to offer. If you go in spring or summer, some of the hotels have great pools, look into a hotels pool scene before you book because during the day, the pool scene is vital

    Fondest memory: Stumbling back to my room I dropped a huge cup full of dollar coins on a security guards feet. I laughed so hard I had tears rolling down my eyes and the security guard cracked a smile

    by ajleer Written Sep 8, 2002

    Favorite thing: The strip has so many cool places to see i can't really name just one....well the coolest free show is in front of Treasure Island....it is a pirate ship battle..very exciting...lots of explosions....and it is FREE!!

    Fondest memory: The whole trip was great...i suppose the best part would have to be gambling in all of the different casinos..or even just walking through the casinos...they are all decorated and fun to look at!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walk from one end of the Strip to another. You will see all of the major casino's and restaurants. As you walk, Elvis's will be singing, certain hotels have outdoor attractions, and the lights are incredible.

    Fondest memory: Watching the fountains outside of Bellagio. This is a casino that has a fountain show either every hour or half our to a couple of different songs.

    Fondest memory: Of course, there are so many other hotels/casinos that are worth while visiting - the Mandalay, the Venice, the Bellagio, the new Paris, just to name a few. The ones I have presented are the ones which I think are the most fun. The new ones tend to be expensive and exclusive and to me seem like brushed-up copies of the original - the Mirage.

    Visit the Strip. Paradoxical...

    by dinhyen Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Visit the Strip. Paradoxical as it may seem, the best things in this gambling metropolis are free! Even if your main purpose here is gambling, it's a joy to take in the sights and sounds here. Simply put, this is the largest outdoor theme park in the world. From the Luxor pyramid and temple, the Bellagio's water fountains, the thespian statues in Caesar's Palace, the Mirage's exploding volcanoes, the dueling man-o-wars at the Treasure Island, to the Freemont Street Experience downtown, take your pick. Cheap eats, cheap lodging, and free entertainment, you can't possibly ask for more. Of course, natives like me would prefer that you will also spend $$ to help support the local economy :)

    Fondest memory: I lived in Las Vegas for several years from '87 till the mid '90s. Even though I live in Boston for the time being, I visit my family there several times a year and still consider myself a Las Vegas native. I went to high school and college here; there are many fond memories which are of a personal realm so they can't be related here :)

    by Mugzy76 Written Aug 26, 2002

    Favorite thing: Hit the Strip! Either walk it or drive it, but do the whole thing. Take it all in. There's nothing like it. The casinos, the hotels, the people, the cars; Excess to the extreme!

    Fondest memory: Turning a 20 spot into 3 hundy at The Orleans playing my least favorite game, blackjack. Beating the poopy dealer made it that much more sweet!

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walk the strip! Just mingling with the tourists is an experience in itself; you also get to see the incredible sights like the fountain dance of the Bellagio, the volcano of the Mirage and the pirates of the Treasure Island.

    Fondest memory: Being on the strip at the stroke of midnight December 31st, 2000

    Favorite thing: The most imortant activity to do in Las Vegas is walk along 'The Strip'. Is the most well-know and crowed street where on both sites you can see the more importants hotels, attractions, restaurants, malls...

    Fondest memory: The best memory when I was in Las Vegas was feel that I was in different countries in few minutes...In the picture you can believe that I'm in Paris (France) but not...I'm in Las Vegas. Yeah!!!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: a must in Vegas is to walk the strip and check out some of the hotels . the work that must have gone into the creation of these properties blows me away . it is like visiting different parts of the world in one stop .

    Fondest memory: my fondest memory of Vegas was the 7 hours I spent at the Holiday Inn Boardwalk's roulette table .
