    New York, New York Hotel, Las Vegas

    Paris is called the city of lights, but Las Vegas will sure make a good partner to Paris in this respect. Take the opportunity to leave the gambling, the spa, the pool or whatever and get out on the streets at night. Each hotel or casino has a distinct style and the newer hotels have become theme parks in themselves, running from the New York, New York with its skyline or the Paris hotel with its Eiffel Tower. There is also a fantastic sound, light and water show at the Bellagio free of charge.

    Old Strip: The Old Strip

    by city_guy Updated Dec 22, 2003
    In the old strip



    I got carried away at the new strip, I almost forgot that Vegas once started here in the old strip. Not as massive as the new strip, but this place sure packs in some serious lightings. Also reminded me of a number of movies I've seen as a kid on tv.

    Plus they have this massive overhead long semi-dome screen which plays stuff every hour or two. Worth the go-and-check-it-out.





    Dress Code: Anything goes!

    DOWNTOWN: Cheap Drinks, Party Atmosphere

    by truesunn Updated Jul 29, 2003

    The Freemont Street Experience is a great place to live it up with friends, as the casinos offer cheap drinks and eats while enjoying the show! Much more laid back and down to earth people there... There was also a live band playing contemporary alternative rock.

    There is a seedy element to the area, but worth the visit! Be sure to get your margarita at Mermaid's and your $.99 shrimp cocktail at Golden Gate!

    Dress Code: Anything goes. I would suggest shorts and a tank top in the summer, it is rather toasty down there!

    While you are in DOWNTOWN, don't forget to check out the FREEMONT STREET EXPERIENCE. A pedestrian promenade in downtown Las Vegas with free entertainment including a one-of-a-kind light and sound show with more than 2 million lights and 540,000 watts of sound. This show begins at dusk daily and ends at midnight. Also along the street are retail carks, kiosks and entertainers.

    It is here all about the nightlife. The most thrilling of daily moments is when evening falls and the lights are one by one turned on.
