Seeing the Strip


The Las Vegas Strip may not look that big when you see fly-by clips of it on TV, but don’t let it deceive you. The Strip is enormous, and trying to see everything on it is not only impractical, for some it’s impossible.

Firstly, each of the resorts on the Strip is a virtual city unto themselves. It’s very easy to spend days inside each of them and never have the need to go outside, let alone visit all the massive properties that run up and down Las Vegas Boulevard.

But the reality is that every first timer and those that have visited just once or twice before are dying to get out there and experience everything the Strip has to offer. So it’s critical to try to get your clients to see them in separate bursts throughout their stay. Between the desert heat and the magnitude of each property, you need to offer them ways to see what they can in the easiest ways possible.

Suggest they do just three or so properties at a time, clustered close to each other. For example, it’s smart to visit Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur all together. Not only are they adjacent to each other, there is a tram connecting them. A mall connects Mandalay and Luxor too, so you can tram one way and stroll through air conditioned shops the other.

Or start at Treasure Island then take the connecting tram to The Mirage. The Caesars entrance is just steps from The Mirage, making those three an easy group to see together.  Wynn Las Vegas, Palazzo and Venetian are also good to tackle at once. Wynn and Palazzo are connected by a sky-bridge, while Palazzo and Venetian are connected by shops.

Another good cluster to check out is Tropicana, then onto MGM Grand, New York New York and Monte Carlo. Bellagio is across from and Planet Hollywood, Paris and Bally’s making this a winning combo. 

 By breaking down into smaller chunks, your clients will keep their energy and have the fortitude to handle those long Vegas days and even longer Vegas nights.
