Fodor's Expert Review Circus Circus Las Vegas Hotel and Casino

2880 Las Vegas Blvd. S, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89109, USA

The hotel at the "Big Top" has renovated all of its rooms in the last decade, giving some much-needed TLC to some of the oldest ones on the Strip (the resort opened in 1968). Other accommodations on the property range from luxury (in the Skyrise Tower, which includes its own casino) to campsites; the RV Park at Circus Circus, which has a children's play area and pet run, is the only one of its kind on the Strip. One of the hotel's other big draws: it's pet-friendly (with a deposit, of course). In the casino, gaming is nothing if not affordable; in addition to rock-bottom table limits (blackjack as low as $2 a hand!), dealers offer complimentary lessons in blackjack, roulette, and craps. Still, the biggest draw at this hulking resort is the Adventuredome Theme Park, Nevada's largest, featuring more than 25 rides. The Midway at Circus Circus holds a world record as the world's largest permanent circus.
