Boasting some of the most beautiful golf courses in the US at Wynn and Stallion Mountain, the East of The Strip proves there's plenty more to Vegas than casinos. Admire vintage Americana at the Neon Museum, with its towering displays from yesteryear, or sample the delights of Ethel M Chocolates on a factory tour. Lake Las Vegas is the perfect place to recharge your batteries after long sessions on the slots.
West of The Strip is alive with the aromas of Chinatown and the innovative exhibitions at Las Vegas Art Museum, and is a perfect break from the rollercoaster ride of The Strip. Take in nature displays and stroll through the botanical gardens at the 180-acre Springs Reserve. Or if you came to Vegas to push chips across tables, some of the best off-Strip casinos are peppered along West Flamingo Road.
Striking a balance between energy and peace, from the buzzing Wild West-inspired Texas Station casino to the sprawling swathes of green and blue at the Aliante Golf Club, North Las Vegas is all things to all people. For full-on exhilaration, check out the Fremont Street Experience, a promenade flanked by casinos and hotels, featuring nightly light shows and a vast overhead canopy where dazzling animations and video sequences hurtle past.
Head South of the Strip for the sprawling complex of designer boutiques, family-friendly restaurants and jumping country music venues that is Town Square. There's also plenty of gaming to be had at South Point resort. Meanwhile, thrashing around Nevada beyond the outer limits of the city on a special desert tour offers a distilled taste of America that makes South Vegas a speed-demon's delight.
The second you cruise past the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, your senses will be bathed in The Strip's illuminated splendor, as Caesars Palace, Mandalay Bay and the names of the other hotel-casinos are lit up all around. The Fountains of Bellagio and a replica of the Eiffel Tower are among the gobsmacking landmarks. A hyperreal realm of fantasy and pleasure, the Strip is like no place on Earth.
"Amazing stay - could ask for nothing else"

We arrived at the hotel quite late in the evening and were met with friendly staff and a nice quick check in. The room was amazing, spacious and clean and the facilities at this hotel top class. We spent three amazing nights in Vegas and will definitely be going back... Would not even consider another place, this one has it all. Great variety in dining and entertainment, easy access to the monorail, very centrally located and the best pools on the strip we have heard!

Good experience overall. The hotel was clean, comfortable and staff was very friendly. The vibe downstairs in the casino was awesome. The location was great - both for access to the strip as well as other activities we booked off the strip. Will definitely stay there again and recommend it.
"Beautiful Hotel with Fantastic Service"

Exceptional service. We arrived at the hotel at 11am, and expected them to ask us to wait for check in at 3pm, but they checked us in immediately, without charging any additional fees. Staff was very friendly and efficient. The only downfall is the location. It is at the end of the strip, close to the airport. So you are away from the Hub of activity

We had a fabulous stay at the Venetian. The staff at that hotel were friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautifully furnished and spacious. I have to make a special mention of Danielle Bostrom from the concierge desk, whom was super patient and very informative. Thank you for all your help and suggestions. This hotel also had a variety of affordable places at which to eat, just a stone throw away. Loved shopping at the canal shoppes and watching the gondolas. Thoroughly enjoyed clubbing at TAO which was one of the best clubs I have ever been to! Sadly our stay was for just one night however will definately be our first choice next time we are in Vegas.
