The Las Vegas Strip Attractions
The Las Vegas strip is a collection of hotels and casinos along South Las Vegas Boulevard. You’ll find long winding pedestrian walkways, grand hotels, shopping at every price range (from Forever 21 to Louis Vuitton). If you’ve never been to Vegas, it’s worth taking the time to walk around the strip. The attractions on the Las Vegas Strip revolve around the big hotels and the unique bars, restaurants, shows and scenery they provide. The Bellagio, the Venetian and the Cosmopolitan hotels should not be missed. These three hotels are located within walking distance from one another.
There are a few unique attractions within the Bellagio Hotel. Most people have heard about the Bellagio hotel’s famous fountain shows, but not many realize that the Bellagio hotel is also home to ‘The World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain.’ Another unique attraction in the Bellagio Hotel is its Botanical Gardens and Conservatory.
Just south of the Bellagio, you’ll find the Cosmopolitan Hotel. The Cosmo has a few notable attractions, including the fancy Chandelier Bar, Marquee Nightclub and an over-sized instagrammable red stiletto (that you can actually fit inside). Food wise, the Cosmopolitan offers Momofuku Milk Bar (fabulous cutesy desserts) and EggSlut (a breakfast favorite).
Across from these hotels, you’ll find the Venetian. The Venetian Hotel is modeled after Venice, Italy and is complete with actual canals. You can even go for a gondola ride! Within the Venetian Hotel, you’ll find CHICA and Black Tap. Chica is a trendy Latin breakfast restaurant, and Black Tap is an american burger chain with outlandish milkshake creations. In addition to Italian feels and great bites, the Venetian hotel is also famous for its instagrammable LOVE installation. The word “Love” is spelled larger than life in bright bold letters. And if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also find Carlo’s Bakery at the Venetian. Carlo, as in Buddy Valastro, from TLC’s Cake Boss.
Besides these three hotels discussed, there are a few other notable attractions on the strip. The Encore Beach club and the MGM Grand’s Wet Republic host the funnest pool parties with the most sought after DJs. Also, Waldorf Astoria’s Skybar is a sophisticated and scenic place to get a drink.

Also worth mentioning, the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” Sign is just a 10 minute drive south of the strip.
