Taking off to Vegas
? If you’d like some stories that will stay in Vegas, head to the Strip. The Las Vegas Strip is almost seven kms long and full of casinos, nightclubs, live shows and luxury resorts, located on Las Vegas Boulevard! If you’re into flashing lights, swanky nightspots and decadent fun, book your Las Vegas Strip hotels with us for a lucky role of the dice.
El Rancho Vegas was the Strip’s first hotel, built in 1941. In 1945, notorious mobster Bugsy Siegel came to Las Vegas and convinced his associates to invest in casinos, which led to new resorts like The Flamingo. Former Los Angeles
police officer turned nightclub owner and mobster Guy McAfee is rumoured to have named the Strip after Sunset Strip in his hometown.
Things to do
On the Strip you’ll find street performers, fancy hotels with spectacular fountains, tall buildings and streets lined with palm trees. To get a good look at it all, visit the Eiffel Tower Experience. This Eiffel Tower is half the size of the real deal and boasts an observation deck at 460 feet.
Whether you’re playing for pennies or ready to test your blackjack skills, the casinos are just as glitzy and shiny as you’d expect from Vegas. If gambling isn’t your thing, there are stacks of other options for a night out. The Strip’s nightclubs range from luxurious lounges with VIP booths, to roaring twenties-style speakeasies with burlesque dancers, to rooftop bars with great views of the Strip. You can also catch some live stand-up comedy at The Laugh Factory, or watch a live band or some martial arts at Mandalay Bay Events Centre or MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Don’t forget, The Strip is only one street. You’ve got the rest of Las Vegas to explore as well!
Shopping and dining
At almost two million square feet and with 250 shops and restaurants, Fashion Show is one massive shopping centre. Its size is topped off by The Cloud, a large white aluminium canopy hovering 128 feet in the air.
Like everything else here, The Strip’s restaurants are extravagant! There’s a two-storey Mexican restaurant / nightclub, a three-Michelin starred restaurant with fancy French cuisine, marvellous French and Spanish food in a restaurant filled with Picasso paintings... and plenty of other choices, often with views of Las Vegas’s glittering night sky.
