The North Strip of Las Vegas

The north end of the strip is known for its inexpensive hotels.  There are several to choose from and some are older hotels that have been around since the 1950's.

    The Riviera was the first high rise hotel opening in 1955.  Liberace and Joan Crawford hosted the ceremonies.  This is an adult oriented hotel and they advise against bringing your kids.  They have many wonderful shows such as Crazy Girls, and An Evening at La Cage.  Splash has ended its run at the hotel.  It is located right across the street from the Circus Circus.

    The Circus Circus is definitely a hotel for families and welcomes kids.  They have circus acts that perform over the casino floors which the little ones can also watch from the second floor.  There is the Adventure Dome complete with roller coaster and other exciting rides on the second floor too.  They also have a midway arcade that is quite popular.

    A little further down the strip and you will find the SLS Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (Sahara).  This hotel has a huge roller coaster wrapped around the front of it as well.  Inside they have quite the Nascar collection above the eatery.  They have cars, shirts, posters, autographed pictures, and keyrings.  This hotel is done in Moroccan décor and Arabian Night themes.

    The Stratosphere is a unique hotel due to its awesome size.  It is 1,149 feet high.  The building has 109 floors.  On the top floor, there are three rides for the adrenalin junkie.  They have the High Roller which is a roller coaster that goes around the outer rim of the top of the hotel.  The Big Shot which is a free fall ride that sends passengers back and forth at 45 mph, also at the top of the hotel.  And the last is called the X-Scream.  This gives you the feeling of falling off the side of the building from 109 stories up.
