The Strip has a length of approximately 5 kilometres and its ends are the Stratosphere Tower in the north, and the MGM Grand hotel and the New York-New York hotel in the south. With the continuous growth of Las Vegas, it can be understood that the Strip ends at the Mandalay Bay hotel in the south, very close to the famous “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign.

Fremont Street represents the old part of Las Vegas and is the second most important street in the city. The Fremont Street Experience is held on this street. Before the creation of the large hotels of the Strip, Fremont Street represented Las Vegas. It was there, where the most famous estanblishments were found, such as the Golden Nugget. Its’ lights appeared in dozens of films. Until the end of the 20th century, when the Strip won the battle, Fremont Street appeared in numerous famous films. If your stay in Las Vegas for only two or three days, you probably won’t have enough time to get close to the old part of the city. But if you stay a bit longer you should not miss a visit to Fremont Street. The best option is to go there at night and enjoy Fremont Street Experience.
The motto of the city is “What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas” and if you smoke weed in Vegas or lose a lot of money in one of the “Howetls”, it is a motto that must be followed. Many travellers who visit Las Vegas believe they will have a blessing while playing cards and return home millionaires or at least cover journey expenses. Although we’re not going to lie to you, this is not always the case. Every Las Vegas hotel is open 24 hours a day and it is not unusual to observe people gambling on the same machine since you go to sleep until you get up for brunch. If you want to try the experience of playing in a hotel in Las Vegas, we recommend changing a small number of dollars in chips. If you are not an expert at poker or blackjack it is best to try your luck on roulettes or slot machines, you never know and you can end the night in a suit drinking champagne. Also, remember that to play in hotels you must have a minimum age of 21 in the United States.
