Las Vegas Strip

Known for Shopping, Entertainment and Dining

With the extravagant casinos, glamorous clubs and the dazzling neon displays you will find yourself swept away in the inimitable Vegas experience.

How do you get to Las Vegas Strip?

Known as “The Strip”, this six kilometre section of the Las Vegas Boulevard could be considered as the beating heart of Sin City. Ever since the 1940s when the first hotels and casinos were opened, it has been the epitome of glamour and extravagance, with a hint of spice. Its development started to grow when the notorious mobster Bugsy Siegel opened the Flamingo in 1946, named, as the story has it, after his exceptionally long-legged girlfriend. Many Hollywood films such as Casino, Indecent Proposal and Ocean’s Eleven have used this location as their backdrop, playing on its inherent intrigue.

The Strip has many iconic landmarks that line the Boulevard, starting with the “Welcome to Las Vegas, Nevada” sign erected in 1959, top of the list for holiday snaps. Where else in the world would you catch sight of an Egyptian pyramid near the Eiffel Tower or a tropical island cove, as is the case when you discover the famous Luxor, Paris and Treasure Island hotels? Feast your eyes on the majestic grandeur of the Bellagio, with its famous illuminated fountains or the MGM Grand.

This place really comes into its own at night under the glare of its famed neon lights. Head to the New York New York casino to tour a miniature Manhattan, step onto a gondola and cruise along the canals at The Venetian, or see a volcano erupt at the Mirage.

By day, The Strip is quieter and perfect for family entertainment. There’s a huge choice of shops to browse, and plenty of snack bars to enjoy a classic burger and shake. For lovers of good food, there are also plenty of top-notch restaurants to choose from. Always be aware though that sunset is just around the corner, when the lights go on along The Strip and the wild party starts all over again.

The Las Vegas Strip is actually located just outside the city limits, only a ten-minute cab ride from downtown. As parking is expensive, the best way to get around is by taxi, minibus or monorail.
