1) The Cosmopolitan –  The Chandelier

I started my walking tour at the Cosmo. The Cosmopolitan has an amazing brunch buffet at Wicked Spoon with bottomless mimosas. Another option for breakfast is Eggslut, seriously delicious egg sandwiches.

2) Fountains of Bellagio

This is definitely a mandatory photo on your trip to Vegas. The fountains run every 30 minutes from 3pm to 8pm Monday through Friday and every 15 minutes from 8pm to midnight. Definitely wait to see the fountain show, because it’s a vegas icon.

3) Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens

After you see the amazing fountain show, go inside the Bellagio to the garden. When I went, it was the Chinese new year and the garden was well decorated with flowers and dogs for the year of the dog. Stick around for a few games at the casino and then continue the walking tour.  

4) The Forum Shops at Caesars

The next stop on the tour is the shops at Caesars Palace. I’m going to say the decorations in-between stores are jaw-dropping and will make you feel like you’re in Italy. I did a little window shopping and then continued my tour.

5) The Mirage-Treasure Island Tram

The next stop on the Las Vegas strip is The Mirage. Go inside and check out their lobby and casino. Then get in line for the tram that I tagged on the map. There isn’t usually a line, just a wait for the tram. It’s not very exciting but a nice break for your feet.

6) Treasure Island

I tagged this on the map as Senor Frogs because it is the closest landmark. Walk towards Senor Frogs and you’ll stumble upon a shipwreck that is reminiscent of Miss Congeniality. The show has since closed, but it’s still fun to look at the scenery. Afterward, cross the strip and head over to the Venetian.

7) The Venetian- Outdoor Gondola Rides

Get a ride on the gondolas to feel like the ultimate tourist. I know this sounds chessey, but when I’m trying I have no problem being the ulitmate toursit and doing cheesy adventure- That’s what vacation is all about!

8) The Venetian- The Grand Canal Shoppes

When you’re done with your Gondola ride you can walk around the shops at the Venetian. I got a delicious gelato and went shopping. The Venetian is a picturequse impression of Venice. It’s unreal how they built a river agmonst the shops and definitely a must see on your trip to Vegas.

9) High Roller

I saved the best for last. The High Roller in Las Vegas is a huge ferris wheel that mimics the Eye of London. You can buy tickets in advance – here.

I went on the High Roller Sunday at noon and a football game had just started on TV so there wasn’t anyone in line. In fact, my friend and I had the gondola to ourselves. We had amazing views of the city from the top of the High Roller and we even saw the Belliago foutains.

I hope you enjoyed the google maps and my commentary about the Las Vegas Strip. Here are a few more landmarks to see that are not within walking distance:

  • The iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign | It’s free to take a picture in front of the sign, but go early to avoid a long line.
  • Freemont street | The orginial downtown Las Vegas
  • The Neon Musem | One of my favorite places to go in Vegas. It’s a musem for all the historic neon signs of Vegas. Schedule your tour at night so you can see the signs lite up.

Have fun in Vegas and email me if you have anything to add to the walking tour or if you have questoins.

Thanks,

Rachel
