The Las Vegas Strip is a stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard in Clark County, Nevada that is known for its concentration of resort hotels and casinos. The Strip is approximately 4.2 miles (6.8 km) in length, located immediately south of the Las Vegas city limits in the unincorporated towns of Paradise and Winchester. However, the Strip is often referred to as being in Las Vegas.
Many of the largest hotel, casino, and resort properties in the world are located on the Strip. The boulevard’s cityscape is highlighted by its use of contemporary architecture, lights, and a wide variety of attractions. Its hotels, casinos, restaurants, residential high-rises, entertainment offerings, and skyline have established the Strip as one of the most popular and iconic tourist destinations in the world. Most of the Strip has also been designated as an All-American Road and is considered a scenic route at night.

We’ve all experienced it at one point or another. You’re in Vegas and you want to put some money down on your favorite team, knock back a few, grab some grub and root on your team to cover the spread.
That all sounds good and fine until you actually get to the casino sports book and smell its air, which is a wicked cocktail of smoke, degenerate gamblers’ last breaths, and two-day-old hot dogs. And what of those jonesers, who apparently live there — don’t you people have homes? —and go about their daily ritual of burying a carton of cigarettes into an already overstuffed ashtray, while mumbling something to themselves about a referee or a horse that didn’t come in. Good times!
