When most people imagine Las Vegas, the first thing that comes to mind is The Strip - the four mile stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard with all the famous casinos and hotels. Bordered by Mandalay Bay on the south and the Stratosphere on the north, visitors can enjoy over 30 casinos which are attractions themselves. Fabulous shopping, dining, and world-class entertainment can all be found here. Pick up the latest designer bag in the boutiques at the Forum Shops in Caesars Palace Hotel Casino. Or peruse the Grand Canal Shoppes in the Venetian Resort & Casino. Watch the dancing Fountains at Bellagio, or take in an imported Broadway show. Attempts have been made to make The Strip more pedestrian-friendly by adding footbridges, free shuttles, cable-pulled trams, and the Las Vegas Monorail.
The Brahma Shrine is located at the north end of Roman Plaza at Caesars Palace Hotel Casino on The Strip. It is a replica of a popular Buddhist shrine in Thailand, and was made in Bangkok, brought to Las Vegas and installed close to Caesars Palace. This shrine is the only Brahma Shrine to exist in the Western Hemisphere. Lord Brahma grants prosperity and good fortune on those who visit it, and this four faced god has a reputation for granting wishes. People leave flowers, small statues and other offerings as tokens of love and respect.
In this sun-soaked decadent desert, find a haven to cool off - in the aptly named Garden of the Gods Pool Oasis. This remarkable waterside space is housed inside the confines of the iconic Caesars Palace, and is outfitted with cabanas, sunbathing avenues and plentiful pool-side spots. Feel like a Roman god as you nibble on fresh fruit plates in the cabanas, and sip on cold nectar-like beverages. While the space is exclusively for the use of Caesars Palace and Nobu Hotel guests, those interested (above 21 years of age) can enter for a fee.
The High Roller is certainly high! At 550 feet (167.6 meters) tall, this is one of the largest observation wheels in the world. Step into an enclosed glass cabin and enjoy a view of The Strip like no other. One trip takes about 30 minutes, ensuring that you'll have plenty of time to take photos from every angle. Each cabin can hold up to 40 people, so bring along your friends and enjoy the view. Prices change depending on the time of day, so check the website for more details.
A visual water symphony choreographed to music provides an unforgettable welcome to the Bellagio Hotel Casino. The water jets span more than 1000 feet (304 meters) and can shoot up to 250 feet (76 meters) in the air while seeming to dance to choreographed lights and romantic classical music. It is a spectacular sight and one worth taking the time to view while strolling along the boulevard. Be sure to bring a camera as this is one of Vegas' best attractions - and it's free! The magic happens every 30 minutes until 8 PM, after which shows are every 15 minutes. Please note that shows may stray from this schedule due to the weather.
Are you in Paris or Las Vegas? Ride to the peak of the 46-story replica of the Eiffel Tower in the glass elevators and you'll find you're in both places at once! At the observation deck on top, you will behold a breathtaking view of the Las Vegas Strip from 540 feet (165 meters) up. The 11th-floor Eiffel Tower Restaurant is formal dining at its finest; reservations are necessary. Tickets are available at the Tower.
The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden is one of Las Vegas' claims to fame. The garden is a sanctuary to more than 7,500 flowers, which are well-kept by 140 horticulturists. With its beautifully placed gazebos, ponds, bridges and water fountains, it's a refreshing oasis amidst the city. It's a delight to stroll through this riot of colors during the day with the light pouring in from the glass ceiling. The night tours are equally exotic with the stars overhead giving the garden a tranquil, fairy-tale feel.
The iconic Hotel Mirage is as popular for its delightful service, great facilities and the several luxuries it offers its guests as it is famous for its remarkable visual features like the Waterfall, the Aquarium and the magnificent Atrium. The Atrium in particular, is a splendid display, featuring gorgeous tropical elements like, deep azure lagoons and cascading waterfalls and beautiful exotic flora - tall palm trees, vibrant tropical blooms and a full-fledged rainforest, right in the middle of the Silver State! Needless to say, it's a much sought venue for upscale business and private events. Surely, this sight is not to be missed!
