Walking the Las Vegas Strip may be one of the best ways to see and explore this amazing city, full of visual attractions and surprises.
As a visitor, I personally want to see everything and take photos of everything! So, if you are like me, or if your visit to Las Vegas this time is limited to the strip, I would advise you to take a walk so as to get the real fun.
When Walking on the strip you can take the elevators to top levels and cross all the bridges traversing the wide busy boulevard.
Looking up and down the strip from this vantage point is a great way to grasp the whole length of it, and a wonderful time to take some incredible pictures of buildings, lights and reflections.
The strip is a little over four miles, and the buildings are much further apart than they seem to be on paper. Trust me, there’s so much to see and do that the distance won’t be an issue.
* Stores and casinos are kept really cold, so you may even need to carry a light jacket with you…
It is a good idea to avoid the back streets – the area between the Stratosphere tower and Fremont street is an example. The strip itself is very well lit and very busy – The glitz and lights coming from all the shops, restaurants and colorful moving ads make it as safe as in the daytime. Walking on Las Vegas strip at night and it’s one of the main attractions of the city. Like many other tourists my husband and I walked safely in the late hours – it’s simply difficult to get to slip :)
Last but not least, also check about the main strip attractions, so you know what you expect ;)
