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.
One of the other famous hotels on the Las Vegas Strip is the Caesar’s Palace hotel and resort. While it was one of the first mega casinos, it has a pretty interesting lobby and shopping mall located inside it’s grounds. It’s also home to the Spago Restaurant, one of the first celebrity chef restaurants in Las Vegas.
The Las Vegas Strip:
No trip to Las Vegas would be complete without a walk on the Las Vegas Strip. The lights here are like nothing else in this world and you could spend nights wandering through the lights and never see the same thing twice.
The Bottom Line: The Las Vegas Strip
Any visitor to Las Vegas, Nevada, United States needs to visit the Las Vegas Strip by night. It’s one of the premier attractions in Las Vegas. Walking past the Paris Hotel Las Vegas, the Bellagio Fountains and the Caesar’s Palace casino is a must in any Las Vegas adventure.
