Find and book an apartment on the Las Vegas Strip
Viva Las Vegas! Built on gambling, entertainment and drive thru marriages, Las Vegas is built on a dessert in Southern Nevada. Las Vegas is the largest city in Nevada and is known as the entertainment capital of the world, famous for extravagant hotels in Las Vegas as well as its mega casinos. For more of an adventure, Las Vegas is only a short distance to one of the wonders of the world, The Grand Canyon. Vegas attracts visitors of all ages, backgrounds, cultures and this is what gives this city its unique selling point.
The Strip is the most popular spot in Vegas, home to 15 of the world's top 25 hotels including MGM Grand Hotel & Casino, Waldorf Astoria, New York New York and the famous hotel from blockbuster film The Hangover, Caesars Palace. It's safe to say that accommodation in Las Vegas is not hard to come by, but don't always assume that you need to stay in a hotel. Las Vegas apartments are a great alternative, and it will also save you some dollars, meaning more money to spend in the casinos (safe gambling of course) or on the world famous all you can eat buffet breakfasts!
Best Time to Visit
As Las Vegas is built in the middle of a dessert, the weather is subtropical meaning hot, humid long summers and short mild winters making Las Vegas a popular destination all year round. If travelling during July & August, be prepared for the humidity and the heat. Luckily, all buildings are air-conned to the maximum but if you want to explore the strip, the canyon or further afield, ensure your kitted out to protect yourself from the heat as temperatures can reach over 40°C. The perfect time to visit Vegas (in our opinion) is between September and December, where you'll still get the sunshine but slightly cooler temperatures.
Where to Stay?
South of the Strip
South of the strip, home to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign as well as some of the most impressive hotels such as the Luxor, Excalibur and the Eiffel Tower at the Paris themed hotel. Even if you decide not to stay South of the strip; an afternoon wandering in and out of these impressive, colourful structures is a must do, as well as a cheeky photo at the famous Vegas sign!
North of the Strip
Find apartments in the north of the strip, a much more facility friendly area. Whilst this spot is not overridden with upmarket hotels, you'll find plenty of family friendly activities and luxury apartments making this a perfect spot for relaxing, especially if you want to be away from party central.
East of the Strip
East of the Strip feels much more cultural than many spots in Vegas, maybe because of its student population as the University of Nevada can be found here. Book accommodation here to enjoy the vibrant life of Vegas.
