City Visit: The Lights of the Las Vegas Strip, Nevada, United States of America.

The Las Vegas Strip is one of the most famous gambling corridors in the world. Many of the largest hotel, casino, and resort properties in the world are on the Strip, known for its contemporary architecture, lights, and wide variety of attractions. Its hotels, casinos, restaurants, residential high-rises, entertainment offerings, and skyline have established the Strip as one of the most popular and iconic tourist destinations in the world and is one of the driving forces for Las Vegas’ economy.

We were able to get out and walk the strip as our stay at the Aria Sky Suites was conveniently placed in a central South Strip location.

A short walk from the hotel is the Paris hotel. The property is run by the Caesar’s Entertainment Group and is famous for its half size replica of the Effiel Tower out front. It’s one of these places that everyone knows about, but I’ve never actually met anyone that’s ever stayed there.

Bellagio Hotel and Casino:

Among the most famous of Las Vegas hotels and resorts is the Bellagio Casino. The property is designed after an Italian luxury villa but it is most famous for its choreographed outdoor dancing fountains, which were among the most famous in the world. The Bellagio fountains run every half and hour and attract a substantial amount of spectators on the sidewalks outside of the Bellagio.
