THE STRIP, Las Vegas
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 .
Check out the Strip!! Some may think the Strip is too commercial or too crowded, but it certainly a part of Vegas that should be seen. Many of the new hotels are spectacular with so many things to offer - from shows, gourmet restaurants (not just cheap buffets), and some of the best night clubs around.
Fondest memory: The ever present sound of slot machines....
Favorite thing: The thing that everyone does in Las Vegas is check out the Strip. This is where everything happens. Even if you don't gamble you can have some fun going from hotel to hotel to see what they have to offer. My favorites were the Mirage, with it's erupting volcano; Caesar's Palace, with it's Forum Shops; Mandalay Bay, with it's tropical atmosphere; and the Venician, with it's Venice canals. Of course, these 'attractions' are all meant to get you in the door, but if you don't let yourself get carried away with gambling you can have lots of fun.
go and walk around on the strip you will f*cking go crazy, go and see some movies at mgm grand, go to all of the casinos and if your not afraid go to fremont street...
Fondest memory: coming to las vegas from california and seeing the glear of lights it was like i was bill clinton in a porn shop...
Each of these new huge hotels has everything you can imagine so that thecustomer will not go to the other hotels. It certainly must not work cause the streets clogged with walker almost all day.
We went to Bellagio, Monte Carlo, Flamingo, Paris, Balleys, Treasure Island, Barbary Coast and all of the little places along the way and of course Aladdin
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
You must drive, or take a bus, all the way up and down the whole strip and perferably to North Las Vegas as well (the old casinos on Freemont street) You will have fun trying to tally up the tatoo parlors, wedding chapels and bail bond places! And the lights, it's overwelming.
Fondest memory: When I am away from Las Vegas I miss the feeling of hanging out with 1 million tourists. Tourists are generally a happy, though tired, bunch. The excitement is infectious. I really like hanging out by the outdoor stage at Harrahs. The people are dancing and the music is hot!
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!
They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. But nothing really stays in Vegas forever. Even some of the most famed, most celebrated casinos have bitten the dust. If you're lucky, you may get to see one of them being imploded. In any case, if you visit and return ten years later, you'll see some new places and probably notice some missing ones.
Fondest memory: Here are a few casinos that are no longer in Las Vegas. I stayed at the Westward Ho in 2004, because it was affordable and well situated right on the Strip. Too bad it's gone. I hope that the Strip will always have places to stay on a modest budget, but that appears increasingly unlikely.

Favorite thing: Driving the strip in Vegas can be a pain. Sometimes you can get to wherever you want to get to by walking. When you book a hotel try to stay somewhere in the center of the strip like at Ceasers Palace or at the Imperical Palace (if you're looking for something cheaper). Some hotels actually offer a shuttle service, but they may not run as late as you want them to. When I used the Rio shuttle, it was available until 2AM.
Favorite thing: As you walk along the strip, you might come across people who are selling cold bottled water. If you are feeling thirsty, do buy one from them as they are selling them for much cheaper prices than at the hotels or some of the malls. I came across one on a bridge near Wynn that was selling a botle for 75cents, as compared to the $2-$3 per bottle at most places.
If you want to see the hotels and casinos on the strip, plan where you want to go first. The strip is very long and the distance between the casinos must not be underestemated. Use the monrail if possible, or take ypur car.
If you want to sees the shows or extras, make sure you know when they start. We waited for 45 minutes at the vulcanos eruption, and that's a long time to be standing on the sidewalk! The show at the Treasure island is fun to see. So is the musical fountain at the Bellagio and the talking fountain inside Caesers. Don't fall for the gondola ride. It is a real tourist trap. Than again, that's Las Vegas!
Watching FREE shows..and cheap buffets...I LOVE EATING!!!
Fondest memory: lost $20.00 on a crap table and can't go to sleep after that...won't try to gamble money or anything else anymore after that experience...DANG!!!!
Sounds good and all but beware, the strip is long and in the summer, it can take a beating on you. Wear good walking shoes if you are going to tackle this feat and when you're tired, "taxi taxi!!"
One summer, me and the girls decided to take a stroll and before we knew it we were well along the strip in 115 degree heat. The heat was bearable since it's a "dry heat" but the flip flops weren't!
Fondest memory: Ummm... what's happened in Vegas, has stayed in vegas. And those photos?... well, let's not talk about them!
