Tips for the Best Vegas Strip Walking Tour
Welcome to Las Vegas! The road rash and jet lag are behind you and now the family is ready to walk the world-famous Strip, armed with water bottles and comfortable shoes! Our years of experience in this town have taught us about the very best -- and worst -- things to see during your visit. Let us guide you through our Vegas Strip Walking Tour. Let's show you some of our favorite spots to make the most of your stroll down the heart of the Las Vegas Strip!
While this may not make your Fitbit happy your feet will certainly appreciate the relatively short walk between all of these attractions with lots of places to stop, sightsee, eat, and shop. You will not need a car or public transportation.
So let’s get on with it starting at the High Roller at the tail end of the Linq Promenade. The High Roller offers the best Strip and citywide views you can get. You’ll ride high into the air in the comfort of a large air-conditioned car or pod. How large? Large enough you can walk around in it and peer out observation windows on all sides.
But there’s one key question you have to decide before you go: whether to do it at night to see all the glitz and glamor of the lights or do it during the day to better grasp the layout of all the Las Vegas attractions? Now, the folks at the High Roller publish advice to you in the form of ticket prices: on-line ticket prices are roughly 30% cheaper during the day than at night. So, there you have it! If you have a large party, most of them kids, consider daytime and take advantage of softer pricing while still delivering the shock value of sky-high views.
While in the area be sure to check out the Linq Promenade. There are a plethora of fun activities including shopping and attractions such as high flying ziplines, VR Adventures, a Fantasy Dome, Exotic Racing, and much more! At night, the Linq Promenade opens up more adult-oriented entertainment like Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club, O’Shea’s Pub Las Vegas, and the soon to open Icebar.
After strolling southward down the Strip a couple of blocks, your gang will be famished, so Wahlburgers just outside the entrance to Bally’s is the perfect stop. Whether you prefer full-service, counter-service, or take out dining, you’ll be accommodated. The Las Vegas location of this famed family-run business offers opportunities for a celebrity sighting. There’s something on the Wahlburgers menu for everyone to enjoy from chicken wings to sloppy joes, plus there’s a full bar! We recommend you rest and relax and settle back into their signature green chairs.
REAL BODIES at Bally’s
Now that you’re feeling recharged you have to find your way to us to see something totally unexpected, REAL BODIES at Bally’s! Get to know your body inside and out!

Fountains of Bellagio
That was quite the enlightening experience, so change gears and bounce across the street to the Bellagio fountains for a free water show, complete with music, lights, and high flying jets of H20 cannoned high into the air and swirled across the manmade lake filled with waters from each of the 7 seas. Properly known as the Fountains of the Bellagio, it’s an iconic Las Vegas experience that is not to be missed. Best of all, it is free.

Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
Now that you’re at the Bellagio Las Vegas go ahead and walk inside to see a few things even Las Vegas locals cherish, including the world’s largest glass chandelier that hangs down across a wide swath of ceiling looking like a field of wildflowers. But, wait there’s more! Find the atrium, also known as the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, where a massive display of live plants, flowers, and seasonal settings change themes and appearances throughout the year.

Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar
Your tour returns to the Linq Promenade where you will find Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar. You probably recognize his name from the Diners, Drive-Ins, & Dives TV show. Many people are unaware that Guy is a Vegas boy, having graduated from University of Nevada Las Vegas. This is a great place for reasonably priced American cuisine in a casual setting. There’s a good selection of craft beers and a huge outdoor patio right on the Strip for the ultimate experience in people watching. Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & bar is centrally located so it’s the perfect place to rest your tired feet, reminisce about the day’s excitement, and decide whether you have enough energy to see one more thing before calling it a night in the Entertainment Capital of the World.
Believe it or not this tour is a short circle encompassing just one corner in the center of the Las Vegas Strip. It’s often surprising to most first-time Las Vegas tourists that you can see so many great sites, have so many great experiences and enjoy so much great food in such a short
