Las Vegas Strip

This page explores Las Vegas Boulevard’s busiest corridor, affectionately known as the Las Vegas Strip. Organization on this page is a bit random and about 22% of what it should be mostly because your host is an infrequent visitor.

The Las Vegas Strip continues to be one of the world’s most interesting and now instagrammable places. It’s visually arresting and storied so much it’s impossible not to enjoy the tales of visitors and locals.

The strip is part of and not part of Las Vegas. It’s plunked in the middle of Clark County and is considered a separate entity from Downtown Las Vegas.
