The Strip may steal the spotlight when it comes to bright lights and neon signs, but it’s not the only place to stay in Las Vegas. Strictly speaking, Russel Road defines The Strip’s southern boundary, though the party continues well into the south.
Teeing off at the tropical themed Bali Hai Golf Club is a rite of passage for Vegas-bound golfers, while the Carroll Shelby Museum is a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with world-class race cars. For those in search of budget-friendly options that are more affordable than the swanky five-star restaurants, staying South of Las Vegas Strip unlocks easy access to supermarkets like Whole Foods.
Thanks to its southern location, the district is just a few minutes from McCarran airport. The Strip is within walking distance, though the journey can be fast-tracked by catching a ride on a local RCT Transit bus or the Strip & Downtown Express.
For those wanting to snap a quintessential Vegas selfie, staying south of The Strip is a great way to access the famous ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ sign. The gaudy 7.5-metre-tall landmark has been in place since 1959 and has been welcoming visitors to “Sin City” ever since.
