Best Vegas Strip location

Where is the best strip location in your opinion? A travel book says the area of TI, Venetian, etc but people who have been tell me the NYNY, MGM, Paris, area.

I can't figure out who rates the best position to be in on the strip. Aren't they all the same?

We've been to Vegas twice and stayed at the Riviera both times and enjoyed each trip immensely.

I'm sorry, but I don't see the difference. That's kind of like the person on here a couple of years ago who was asking people on here what the amenities were on a flight on a certain airline, and the flight lasted all of an hour and 15 minutes. Really, did it matter?

Seriously, anywhere on the strip is fine. Walk up and down it. There are many fun things to see and do all up and down the strip, regardless of where you stay.

We stay at Bally's about once a year. The rooms are nice and huge. It's kinda in the middle of the strip (it's adjacent to the Paris and directly across from the Bellagio and Caesar's). The monorail has a stop at Bally's so you can easily move up & down the strip. The Venetian is lovely, but I hate how big it is and how long it takes to get through the lobby and to you room - not to mention getting to from the series of walkways off the strip.

Personally, I like staying in one of the hotels at the intersection that has Bally's, Bellagio, Caesars and the old Barbary Coast since it's pretty much in the middle.

Are you saying you consider MGM, NYNY and Paris to be in the same "area" of the strip? Huh? They aren't.

I think that Paris/Bally's, and the Bellagio across the street, are in the "best" location because they are pretty much smack dab in the center of the strip with easy access to Venetian, TI in the north and MGM, NYNY in the south.

But you should stay in the hotel/casino where you plan to spend the most time. Most of them are such huge resorts with so many restaurants and shops that you could conceivably spend several days without leaving the same property. The "best" location is a personal thing.

I think the best strategy is to determine which shows/restaurants you plan to see/visit, then pick a hotel.

On a map, those hotels appear to be next door to one another - and they are - but they're huge and it's a hike from one to the next.

Mid strip is Paris, Bellagio, Caesars. NYNY and MGM are closer to the Airport end of the strip and are not close to mid strip. TI Venetian and the Wynn are on the other end.

We just returned a few days ago, stayed at the Bellagio walked to the new Planet Hollywood (formerly The Alladin) It is really beautiful!

We like staying mid strip, as anyplace we like to go is within walking distance an the view from the Bellagio is just beautiful.

Whenever we want to go anywhere, we take a cab. Each hotel has a cab stand and it takes a few moments to get a cab and a couple of bucks. Very convenient and door to door. The monorail is not a convenient way to travel around Vegas.

Just an FYI, "The Strip" is miles long (6 I think) I would not want to walk it, espically when it's over 100 degrees in the blazing sun. We were just there and it was cold and windy.

Well, the Bellagio of course because of the fountain shows, of course.

Caesars Palace is in the best location.

Bally's address might be on LV Blvd but it is really located on Flamingo Road.

I have been to Las Vegas many, many times and I think mid-strip is best. I consider Bellagio, Caesar's, Paris, Bally's, Flamingo, Mirage, Harrah's and Planet Hollywood to be mid-strip.

Treasure Island, Venetian and The Wynn are also nicely located.

I'm not as crazy about the location of Monte Carlo, MGM Grand, NYNY, Tropicana, Excalibur, Luxor and Mandalay Bay. I've stayed at Mandalay Bay and it is lovely, but the location is not as desirable (for me).

Personally, I like exploring these beautiful resorts and I think the shopping, shows and restaurant choices are better mid-strip.

Just my two cents, of course.
