The Las Vegas Strip

Las VegasEven though the Las Vegas Strip in the United States is relatively small, it’s internationally well-known. It boasts fifteen of the world’s twenty-five largest hotels (by room count). Here you can find some of the world’s largest casinos, hotels, and resort properties. The lights from The Strip can be seen for miles around, and it is actually considered to be a scenic route at night. The Strip has evolved into one of the world’s most popular destinations for tourists due to entertainment, casinos, hotels and restaurants. It’s a large draw for those wanting to live there with its residential high-rises. The first casino was built on The Strip in 1931, and has been constantly evolving ever since.

Location of Las Vegas Hotels on The Strip

The Las Vegas Strip is only 4.2 miles in length. “The Strip”, as it’s more commonly known, isn’t actually in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s located in the unincorporated towns of Winchester and Paradise, and is located just south of the Las Vegas city limits. Even though The Strip is small, it interestingly has several zip codes. The main zip code is 89109. Other zip codes in The Strip’s area also include 89119, 89169, 89183, and 89104.

Traffic and Transportation

Person holds hand on the stearing wheel of a car while holding the uber appAs you can imagine, The Strip is a hustling, bustling place. In order to alleviate some of the obvious traffic problems, and to also make easier for guests to get onto The Strip, there are several modes of transportation available. Even the modes of transportation can be hectic and confusing. There are monorails that travel only between certain casinos, but other monorails that travel the majority of The Strip itself. Double decker buses serve as transit to and from The Strip from downtown Las Vegas. The buses stop near every casino on their routes.

There are select buses that stop at hotels and shopping attractions. You will also find trams that offer a free ride, trams that only travel on one side town, or between certain casinos. You’ll also find taxi services, but they are only allowed to stop at designated spots, or at hotel entrances. It’s best when utilizing the taxis to inquire what destinations they are allowed to stop at. Then there are the shuttles. The shuttles range in running time from 15 minutes to every 60 minutes. There are shuttles that run every thirty minutes down The Strip. Here again, it depends on which casino you want to visit, which hotel you’re staying at, and what side of town everything is on. In order to use some of the shuttles, you must have a room key from certain affiliated casinos.

Pedestrian Traffic on The Strip

Las Vegas Strip MapAs expected, pedestrian traffic is just as busy as the roadways. Some casinos have outdoor shows, which causes quite the crowd gathering. The busiest times on the sidewalks are in the early morning and evenings. Weekend nights are especially busy. Because of the high volume of pedestrian traffic, some sidewalks are extra wide. Footbridges have been installed to help lessen the congestion at busy intersections. Some of the footbridges are designed to match the theme of nearby resorts and casinos.

Other Attractions

Over the years, The Las Vegas Strip has become more family friendly. The numerous light and fountain shows located outside of the casinos are eye-catching and entertaining for the whole family. You can also find Chocolate Factories, botanical gardens, aquariums, and a number of museums that will be sure to interest your younger family members. There are plenty of wildlife habitats along and near the strip, too.

Many of the casinos have live, daily performances held outside for all to enjoy. For example, at the Circus Circus casino, you’ll find the world’s largest permanent circus. Shows start daily at 11am. If you stop by the Excalibur Casino, you’ll find medieval performers at the Court Jester’s Stage. There’s a vast variety of music everywhere you go on The Strip. Some performances are outside for all to enjoy, while others are in club settings that are adult-oriented. Music ranges from jazz to country, so you’re sure to find something you and your family will like.

Las Vegas, Nevada, has truly become a family vacation land for both the United States and abroad. There’s a little something for everyone – both inside and out of the city limits.
