All right, Vegas fans, here’s your chance to show off! How well do you know the Las Vegas Strip? I just took this sweet shot of the entire Las Vegas Boulevard. (You can click on the photo to see it full-sized.) How many of the casinos do you recognize? I’ll give some hints: The best Las Vegas hotels in Las Vegas include the easily recognizable Luxor, New York New York and MGM Grand.
What are some of your favorites?
Coming to town and want to snap a panoramic shot of the Las Vegas Strip? I’d recommend going to Mix at Mandalay Bay, the southern most hotel, to try to take a vertical shot, or heading to the Stratosphere on the north side, home of my favorite ride, Big Shot, which starts its free fall adventure at more than 1000 feet. After you grab that perfect Strip photograph, you can even now jump off the Stratosphere from the 108th floor!
Me? I cheated. My Vegas magazine office, where I serve as editor-in-chief, has a beautiful Las Vegas Strip view. Thanks to our flat desert landscape, I have a clear shot, even though it’s about 20-30 minutes away in a car.
Here’s a full shot, from my office in suburban Henderson, NV:
As you can see, living in the Vegas suburbs offers the best of both worlds: a “normal” lifestyle that’s within eyesight of the parties, A-list events and more that pack the exciting Las Vegas Strip!
