The Las Vegas Strip


The Las Vegas Strip in Nevada is a 4.2-mile street in Clark County with the hotels, casinos, and restaurants that make Vegas so famous. It is best known for the casinos, but the remarkable architecture and lights typically catch the eye of visitors arriving at night because of how high the lights stretch into the air. 

The Strip is a part of Las Vegas Boulevard between Sahara Avenue and Russell Road and is considered a resort corridor. In 1989 when The Mirage was opened, it was the start of the making of most of the ambitious major resorts like the Luxor, Excalibur, and Mandalay Bay and making hotels with themes.

Many restaurants were opened inside the hotel and casinos on the strip and famous chefs like Gordon Ramsey have opened restaurants as well. The strip also has several roller coasters like the Big Apple which is inside the New York-New York hotel and resort and the High Roller which is owned by Caesars Entertainment and is the tallest Ferris wheel in the world.

Regardless of whether you’re staying on the strip or not, it is definitely worth going to see because of its amazing buildings and structures.
