THE STRIP, Las Vegas
Trader Vic's is one of those chain restaurants that is famous for good food, trendy decor and awesome Mai Tai's. Here in Vegas you can either eat or just sit out on patio and have a beer or two and people watch. Wonderful view. Inside is really nice decor and kind of a trendy place for the young to hang out. So it can be a little noisy, but is is nice here.
During summer the lovely water fall in front is beautiful at night anytime of the year, but during summer, my boys love to play in it:)
Even if you never set foot in any of the hotel / casino complexes, you will see plenty of nice and amazing things just by walking down the main street. Las Vegas Boulevard is full of outdoor entertainment. many of them belong to certain hotel / casino complexes but free to see them from the street or just by walking closer to them. Vegas is the most beautiful at night. That is when the city comes alive for real. You see limos, luxury sports cars and nicely dressed people everywhere. Vegas is also a popular place to get married.
As you walk down the street you might recognize some of the World's most most famous buildings or monuments, like the Empire state building from New York. You can also see Pyramids from Egypt or the Eiffel Tower from Paris, France. For the list of Vegas night clubs and bars, please visit the URL below.
Dress Code: Dress comfortable.
I had the club experience in Las Vegas at the Seven club. We got there early and were able to snag one of the very hip looking booths near the dance floor.
The dance floor was pumping and the DJ played a mix of house/hip-hop and popular dance songs.
There were smaller, separate rooms off the main room complete with comfy seating.
What attracted us to Seven was the open-air patio overlooking the Strip. It has it's own little place with couches and bar.
Dress Code: Usual club wear for the women and dressier clothes for the guys.
It is difficult to go wrong when it comes to hotels on the "Strip". I am partial to the Paris Hotel, but also like the Hard Rock Hotel and Planet Hollywood. If you want to go to the nightclubs in one of the big hotels, - some of them hosted by the likes of Paris Hilton or some other "hot" pop culture celebrity, I advise that you research those nightclubs, - consider staying in a hotel that has one, as they can get difficult to get into. Best would be, - after you do the research is to book online, and include a "access pass" to the club. Same goes for the pool areas, - the exclusive ones. Some hotel like Ceasars, now have topless pool areas, and a little forethough might get you in.
Dress Code: Dresscode is distinctively casual in the Casinos, however, if you are going clubbing, particularly at the high end nightclubs, dress to impress.
this town is so alive at night, and not 8 more like 12 till 8am!! all the action goes down at night..that's why it's so hard for us las vegans to adapt anywhere else in the world..i love seeing the strip at night, the whole plave just screams fun!!!!!!!
There are so many great sights to see after the sun goes down in Las Vegas. The fountains at Bellagio, the Volcano at the Mirage, the lights up and down the strip. Walk the strip and do a little people watching while you're at it.
Las Vegas is a town that "sleeps" in the heat of the day, by the pools or in the cool gambling rooms, and comes out at night, with the streets crowded of people, seeing the lights and enjoying the less warm breeze of the night. Each hotel, each corner, each club try to grab visitors, by all means, the most attractive of all being the outdoor live show.
The best of all is the battle at Treasure Island.
Difficult to see properly, because there is always a crowd around it (it's free!...) it's funny, well conceived, mixing technology, music, dance, special effects, and... imagination. Easy to locate (Treasure Island hotel), you may check locally the scheduling of the performances.
You don't need an objective.
You don't need a reason. The strip, at night, is a lively show, with, lights, sounds, and lots of people, just wandering around, looking like looking for something to look at.
Confused? No, the kaleidoscopes have those confusing repetitions...
The strip is a giant vacuum cleaner, with music, shows and touts sucking you inside... anything!
There's a lot more to do than "just" gamble in Las Vegas. Here is a link of an article of the top 10 things to do that you might find helpful
Just walk up and down the strip. Enter some casinos (must be 21 to stop at a slot machine, otherwise you have to keep on walking so that you can not gamble) and play. Often you get free or cheap drinks at the roulette tables.
Unless you go to bed early you are not going to miss it.. its everywhere.. just walk out of your room and head downstairs. I'm mentioning no place in particular.. just wander.
You may want to think twice when someone suggests a night of "doing shots and riding the roller coaster." Especially when you end up in a limo that takes you to every crazy thrill ride along the Strip!
During the day, The Strip is merely a busy street with lots of highrises. But at night it comes to life! When the sun goes down and the lights go on, you'll see Las Vegas as it's famous for: lots and lots of flickering lightshows. Several of the big hotels have street-side shows that you can watch, such as the dancing fountains at the Bellagio.
Of course, if you feel so inclined, you can enter any of the hotels to try your luck at the tables or one of the thousands of slot machines.
Dress Code: No dress code since it's right there out in the street. It will be packed though, especially on the weekends. And don't be surprised that the air is still stiffling hot at midnight.
You can honestly find just about anything to do just about any time of the day or night. Of course the casinos stay open 24 hours and the bars never close either! As a matter of fact, you can walk right down The Strip drink in hand!
