We previously reported on the various resorts and activities that have reopened in Las Vegas. Now, we have a more complete list of where to stay and play in Sin City. Some of the Strip’s biggest properties, like Cesar’s Palace, Treasure Island, Paris, Stratopshpere, and Wynn-Encore have also reopened.
Paris, Las Vegas
One of the staples of the Las Vegas strip is the giant Eiffel Tower and that glittering hot air balloon. And with international travel on hold, there’s no better way to get your Parisian fix than by visiting the famous Paris Las Vegas. Currently, the casino, bars, and restaurants are open, and starting July 14th, their popular musical comedy, Friends: The Musical Parody, will begin performing nightly.
One of the more exciting and family-friendly resorts on the Strip, Treasure Island, has also reopened. The property’s Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. has also reopened. The S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is an interactive superhero experience that has props and costumes from the Avengers movies, as well as interactive games, displays, behind-the-scenes knowledge, and unique souvenirs. It’s the perfect afternoon escape for superhero fans of all ages.
Caesar’s Palace is one of the most sought-after destinations in Las Vegas. Not only for their casino and headlining shows, but also for their pool area, the Garden of the Gods. Rent cabanas, sip on cocktails poolside, or dip your toes in the refreshing waters. There’s only one way to truly beat the Vegas heat, and that’s with a refreshing dip in a luxurious pool at Caeser’s Palace. Garden of the Gods is open and cabanas can be rented through Caesar’s website.
Wynn & Encore
The Wynn and Encore have decided to completely reopen. That means all 20 restaurants, 10 bars, 5 pools, the golf course, and their malls (which hosts names like Dior and Prada) are all open. But one of the coolest activities to reopen at the resort is the Lake of Dreams. This private show takes place multiple times throughout the night, and combines water, holograms, puppetry, and music to create one of Vegas’ best kept secrets. The lake can be seen from some of the Wynn’s bars, and guests can also sit lakeside to watch the show up-close.
The Stratosphere is the perfect resort for the adventure junkie. Not only is the hotel and casino open, but so is the Top of the World restaurant, located 800 ft. above the Strip. Better yet, their theme park (which just happens to be at the top of their 1,149 ft. tall tower) is also open. The Big Shot shoots you up, giving you panoramic views of the Las Vegas…before free-falling down to the launchpad. Insanity lifts you out over the Strip and spins you around as you face straight down. And the Sky Jump lets you jump off the side of the tower, falling over 800ft. to the ground. It’s the perfect (or scariest) escape from the casino.
Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, Las Vegas is currently requiring all guests to wear face coverings when indoors or in crowded areas. Many resorts provide complimentary face masks. To find out specific details, be sure to contact the hotel you plan on staying at.
