You will also find bars, restaurants, theatres, and some of the most amazing sites that you can imagine lining the strip, such as the Mirage volcanoes erupting, the Paris Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe and the New York skyline as you head towards the New York New York hotel and resort.
You will find that a stroll along the strip is like no other you will ever have experienced. The strip is always teaming with people and there is always something happening. With so many huge hotel resorts lining both sides of the strip, you can pop in and out of huge and often wondrous hotels as you stroll along. As you are walking you will see some of the sights and attractions that have made the strip such as fabulous place, such as the pirate show at Treasure Island and the famous Bellagio fountains, which shoot up into the air and dance in time to the music.
