The South Strip of Las Vegas

The South Strip of Las Vegas could be considered the expensive end.  Most of the hotels on this end are resorts and are more elaborate than the hotels at the other end of the strip or on Fremont Street.  These are hotels with huge towers and everything from shopping to spas to convention centers.  Let's take a look at the sights on the south end of the strip.

    The first hotel you will see when going north on the strip is the Four Seasons hotel.  These people do everything in a big way from the entrance way to the cotton sheets on the beds.  There is also no clanging or ringing of a casino to overload your senses as you walk through the door. 

    For casino sounds that are quite abundant, follow the signs and go through the side door of the Four Seasons and you walk right into the Mandelay Bay's casino and gaming tables.  If you walk a little further into the lobby, you will see a huge aquarium that advertises for the hotel's Shark Reef Experience.  If you have an hour or two, go and see the wildlife ranging from crocodiles, pirahna, sharks, jellyfish, and even some baby rays you can touch.

    The next hotel you come to will be the Luxor.  You can't miss this one with the big pyramid and Sphinx sitting in front of it.  This hotel is decorated with Egyptian tones and has a unique lobby inside.  The rooms go up the outside of the pyramid and the elevator which is called and INCLINATOR actually travels at a slant up the floors.

    The Excalibur Hotel is out of King Arthur days.  It is a huge fairy tale castle complete with dragons and pageantry on the inside.  Make sure to eat the Tournament of Kings medieval style buffet complete with a jousting attraction.
