People categorize Vegas in two distinct parts: "The Strip" and "Off Strip Las Vegas". Every traditional film, all of the Hollywood lights, tend to focus on The Strip, but that sets many people up to miss out on some of Vegas' hidden treasures. Paradise Road travels parallel to Las Vegas Boulevard and houses a variety of great hotels, attractions and dining hot spots. To the east of the Strip, the Resort Corridor is considered to be from the Strip over to Paradise Road, and the distance between these two main roads can vary from about .5 mile to 2 miles.
The Hilton, on the south end of Paradise Road, is among the closest Las Vegas Hotels to The Strip and is commonly as busy as any on-strip locations. The Hilton boasts the largest sports book in the city, and until 2008, was home to the Star Trek Experience. Reba McEntire and Barry Manilow have exclusive bookings at the Hilton where guests can see them numerous times throughout the year. Nearby, and equally as attended, is the Vegas Convention Center.
The Convention Center is prized for its modern versatility and competitive pricing for purchase. Its 3.2 million square foot housing provides ample space for multiple gatherings at one time. Exhibits as varied as the National Association of Broadcasters and The Great West Truck Show make their way through the center every week. Going to the convention center might not be a roll of the dice, but thousands of people find hours of enjoyment exploring exhibits while just as many find the usable space perfect for displays marketing their wares.
The Hard Rock Hotel is another attraction that, though not on The Strip, commands a vast audience each night. Fans of Hard Rock agree that you have not seen the fullness of the establishment until you have stepped foot inside Vegas’ massive casino and hotel. With the same rock n’ roll environment as the restaurant (which is located on-strip), this Hard Rock Hotel adds another element to enjoyment. Some say the hotel books all the best shows in town, and the best part: when you have screamed yourself hoarse singing along to your favorite tunes, you do not have to drive home afterward. Instead, guests of the show can simply go up to their room and sink into bed.
No matter what brings you to Vegas, venturing away from the main way is an adventure worth having. The sights and sounds on Paradise Road can be as thrilling as any elsewhere, and many people come to appreciate the slower, lighter traffic away from the blaring lights. Off Strip East Las Vegas is a good place to start.
