Default another Las Vegas question

I am still trying to plan our get away. Can someone tell me what hotels are in the middle of the strip? We are mainly going for the dance shows vs gambling but I would like something that is in easy walking distance of the other Casinos.
Thanks

We've been staying at Plant Hollywood for the past couple of years. It's not "dead center" but pretty centrally located and an easy walk to most casinos

The Mirage is fairly centrally located, along with everyone else's suggestions.

Monte Carlo is what I like, but like said just get a cab. It's a lot further to walk than you think.

Flamingo is updated and kind of centered. We were at Aria last time we went and it was centered perfectly for what we did. Ride The Deuce if you have a long way to go. $7 a day and unlimited rides. Taxis are ridiculous unless traveling a long distance.

Bellagio or Caesars are tough to beat, for being pretty much center strip; if you don't mind spending a little extra coin.

Paris, Planet Hollywood and Bally's are across the street and right there as well.

Staying at any of those gives you walking access to pretty much any of those properties. If you want to be in what feels like the middle of everything, that's about the area.

I've stayed at several but Paris and Aria are both in the middle of the strip and I would recommend either of those. They were both great.

Vegas is deceiving. You see the hotel you want to walk to and you walk and walk and walk only to still "see" the hotel you want to go to. Ride the Duece, tram or take a cab.

Use ride sharing, uber or lyft. Taxis are way over priced. Happy hour at margaretaville inside flamingo has nickle beer 5-6.

X2!!! I go usually once a year and drive there most of the time. When flying I rent a car so I can take the old lady shopping at the outlet malls. For center strip I like the bellagio. If you get a car don’t be afraid to stay on the south end of the strip. Lots to do and all the casinos are attached essentially. I like Luxor Mandalay Bay and mgm grand. and when we’ve taken the kids Excalibur since it’s a castle.

They charge for parking now most places though.

Never take a cab in Vegas... Uber is the only way to get around. Also, check out the show Absinthe. Any seat is good and you will entertained, embarrassed and offended all at the same time.

If you have access to IHG (Holiday Inn Points) stay at the Palazzo Hotel. Its part of the Venetian. Wife and I stayed there in Feb and it was perfect. Everything is around you.

Ive stayed at MGM (6), Signature at MGM (1), Wynn (1), Palazzo (1), Mandalay Bay (2), Tropicana (1)

All are good choices. Also everything looks alot closer than it is!

See where the shows you are going to are located and then take a look at snap. You may find a “streetwise Las Vegas” map at most bookstores. Check Vegas.com for shows and packages. Uber/Lyft or rental car for getting around and if there are others going deal with multiple hotels on everything. I leave on Saturday for a convention out there.

Top. Thinking about taking my wife for a long weekend. She's never been to Vegas. Any thoughts on where to stay? Should probably go middle of the strip, I guess.

if you stay on east side of strip like Ballys or Harrahs the Vegas monorail is on that side and you can ride up and down the strip without too far to walk.

Ain’t that the truth! We stayed a Planet Hollywood and decided to walk to the Sands Expo to check in for the shot show and I though we would never get there. It looked like it was right there.

Bellagio is our home casino. It is very nice, We also stay at the Wynn, Mandalay Bay, and Aria. My wife likes the Wynn and Bellagio the best. I don’t really care but I do know that the nicer the casino is the tighter the machines are.
