Best Places to see in Las Vegas

Las Vegas has two centers - the wonderland of the Strip, and the older Downtown area, where the city began in 1905. The Strip is really Las Vegas Boulevard (Hwy 604), a 4.5-mile- (7.2-km-) long street that runs northeast through the city.

The Downtown area crosses the Strip around Fremont Street. Strictly speaking, the part of the Strip that lies south of the Sahara Hotel is in Clark County, while the city proper is centered around Downtown Vegas. Ringed by mountains, canyons, and desert, the LV area also has a wealth of natural beauty in a variety of parks, some of it just a short drive from the Strip.

Getting Around

The Strip is a long road, and driving is recommended as the best way to get around. Major hotels have free parking lots, as well as valet service. The number 301 bus runs along the Strip past Downtown, and a trolley bus service operates between Hacienda Avenue in the south Strip and the Sahara Hotel in the north.

Both buses stop at all the major hotels on the Strip. Taxis are also an option and are best hailed at hotels.
