People have asked the question: What is the difference between the Las Vegas Strip and downtown Las Vegas? Well they are very different from one another. Las Vegas Blvd is one of the most famous streets in the world, such casinos as the Venetian the Wynn and Mandalay Bay, just to name a few are located there. The newest and hottest casinos line the Strip, and if you love to sightsee this is where you need to be. You can take in a show, see such attractions like the Stratosphere Tower, or Madame Tussauds wax museum, or go into one of many famous nightclubs such as Coyote Ugly or the Playboy club, not to mention that there are stores to shop in from all over the world, a buffet in just about every casino, and world renovated restaurants all along the Strip.
Downtown Las Vegas is "old school" Vegas. Not saying that old school is bad. This is where the serious gamblers and budget conscious can be found. The table limits are lower and there are slot and video poker machines galore. There are more nickel slots in downtown Vegas than there are in the whole state. The Golden Nugget graces downtown and every night you can go outside of the Casinos and watch a light show called the Freemont Street Experience. The laid back atmosphere of downtown is not like the action going on up the Strip, but if you would like to experience all the glitz and glamor, the strip is only a cab ride away. No matter what, your bound to find awesome deals all over Vegas, whether you're down town or on the Strip
