For those who find the thought of The Strip a little overwhelming, heading west is a great alternative. Known for its local restaurants and neighbourhood casinos, staying west of The Strip offers plenty of Vegas appeal, with a dash of Nevada charm.
Hotels like The Orleans, Palms, Gold Coast and Rio attract locals and tourists alike, though the atmosphere is distinctly less flashy than The Strip. Movie theatres and bowling alleys ensure there’s plenty of entertainment on offer, while unique experiences like ‘Dig This’ offers visitors the chance to play with heavy construction equipment.
Depending on how far west guests are staying, The Strip can be reached by foot, or by taxi. Often, the drive will take just minutes. Some of the more upmarket hotels will also offer a complimentary shuttle service to The Strip, or to nearby attractions.
Like most big cities, Las Vegas has its very own Chinatown. It’s located west of Treasure Island and is home to a host of Asian-inspired shops and restaurants. Venture further afield, and natural wonders like Red Rock Canyon National Park whisk guests far away from the bright neon lights of The Strip.
