Virtual Guidebook to Las Vegas and Southern Nevada
The Strip From Sands to Flamingo
Las Vegas Nevada

This stretch of Las vegas Boulevard has two of the oldest hotel casinos on the the Strip - the Flamingo and Caesar's Palace, both of which have been repeatedly rebuilt and expanded. Treasure Island is a family favorite, with a battle between pirates and the Royal Navy enacted out front at intervals through the day and evening. Steve Wynn's Mirage Hotel set a new standard for size and elegance when it opened in 1989. The Venetian includes indoor canals complete with gondolas and gondoliers.
