    Exploring the Hotels and Casinos on the Strip

    Inside the Venetian

    Favorite thing: We spent a lot of time during our stay in Las Vegas just visiting the various themed hotels and casinos along the Strip. These places are massive! A visit to the Bellagio and its dancing fountains is a must. Then there is the Venetian, a (not so small) taste of Venice.

    Or imagine the best of the New York skyline transplanted to the desert. Want to see the largest hotel in the world, then stop by the MGM Grand. Never been to Paris, well who needs to when you can see a half-scale replica of the Eiffel Tower instead.

    Fondest memory: Although I'm not really a gambler, I also enjoyed walking through the various casinos, soaking up the atmosphere and hearing the cries of joy from those on a winning streak that day.

    There is such an array of places to eat and drink inside the hotels, from fast food to celebrity chef restaurants, and lots of stylish bars and nightclubs for a post gamble cocktail or boogie.

    Gondola rides

    Favorite thing: Arrive early if you want to ride the gondolas. I think they open at 10:00 a.m. If you are there when they first open, and when most people are still sleeping off their hang-overs, you can avoid a long line. And I mean a LONG line. The first time I didn't do this and the line was about 4 hours. The second time the line was about 5 minutes cause I went first thing in the morning.

    What a girl wants and what her feet will allow!!

    by dustystacks Written Apr 4, 2006

    Favorite thing: There is no exaggeration to the old adage "bring comfortable" shoes. If you buy new ones for the trip break them in thoroughly. You will walk, and that's NOT outside...these casinos are huge!! We didn't even get to the Grand Canal in the Venetian after an hour of walking and gawking at the place. The facades can be deceiving and the outside distances from one venue to another is longer than it looks...also make sure your shoes "stand up" , so to speak, in the heat. Vegas is DRY and HOT and the heat radiation from the concrete sidewalks is overwhelming.
    Ask for a bottle of water in the casino while you're losing, ummmm, playing, to go with whatever else you're drinking. Stash it in a pocket or purse or drink it there but drink it! It's also great for poring on the back of your neck or on your baking feet. {Don't ask, just do it :) }
    Don't lug around a big purse. Minimize the best you can and have something soft that will squish up in your lap when sitting at the machines or tables.

    Fondest memory: Going to see my 90 year old Aunt who's been in Vegas for over 50 years. I loved moving through the casinos pretending that some old movie star would actually make an appearance and double the cheap thrills. Wondering around in the Downtown casinos is a trip.
    The place is a total fantasy that can grow to be an obession. It's really easy to take that Mediterrarian/Middle Eastern/Cowboy vacation you've always wanted, all in the same week.

    Strike a pose at Madame Las Vegas (like me here)

    pose at Madame Troussard's Las Vegas

    Fondest memory: Madame Troussard's Wax Museum

    It's typical tourist stuff, I know, but you have to pose with your favorite figure. Here is mine, Gloria Estefan!

    Here's a general tip: don't be caught without a camera at the museum! The cost to buy one-time use camera at the museum was about $18- this price for a retail $6-$8 camera!! Oh, scandalous!

    Favorite thing: The plaque reads: Coins found in water fountains throughout the Palazzo are donated to fund The Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Clinic for drug abuse treatment and research. Located in Las Vegas, funds contributed will be matched by Dr. and Mr. Adelson, founders of the Palazzo and the Venetian, as an additional contribution. Thank You for helping the fight against drug addictions.

    "May All Your Wishes Come True."

    Fondest memory: To me this is a wonderful way of giving back to the community!

    Outdoor gondola ride

    Outdoor gondola ride

    Favorite thing: Right in front of the Venetian casino, they built a small canal and a gondola dock similar to the real one in Piazza San Marco in Venice. Weather permits, you can hire a gondola circling around. From what I see, this is not as popular as Venetian's indoor gondola ride though (see must-see tips).

    Venetian architecture

    by goingsolo Updated Nov 14, 2004
    Venetian Hotel and Casino

    Favorite thing: I've never been, but its said that the architecture of the Venetian resembles that found in Venice. The outdoor piazza area has some impressive statues such as these, in addition to impromptu singing and other entertaining acts.
