Best Views of the Las Vegas Strip

Best View on the Las Vegas Strip

What are the best views in Las Vegas?

Las Vegas is inarguably beautiful, and we’re not just saying that because we’re biased. Vegas is ideal for those who love the majestic scenery of the desert, the lights of the Las Vegas Strip, or just remarkably good weather. No matter what your desired scenery, there’s one thing that is for sure. There’s a lot to look at in Las Vegas.

Luckily for you, we’re breaking down some of our favorite views and the best places to soak them up. These are the spots where you can take in a sunset, marvel at all the neon and enjoy Las Vegas.

High Roller at the LINQ Promenade

The High Roller was designed to provide Las Vegas lovers with some of the most exceptional views in the Las Vegas valley. The High Roller is the world’s tallest observation wheel. The 360-degree views (and the height) are heart-stopping.

One revolution of the wheel takes approximately 30 minutes–plenty of time to take in all of the views. Tickets are available for both daytime and evenings, which means twice as many views to enjoy. Happy half-hour tickets, offered between 12 pm and 6:59 pm allow you to enjoy a 20-minute ride an open bar inside the cabin.

Getting to the High Roller is a breeze! Hop on the Las Vegas Monorail and head over to the Harrah’s & The LINQ Station. You can’t miss the High Roller– keep your eyes to the sky.

Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Las Vegas

The Foundation Room might be one of Vegas’ best-kept secrets. Located at Mandalay Bay, the entrance to the Foundation Room can be found on the backside of the guest elevators facing the escalators to the beach level.

Enjoy the patio seating and a diverse menu at the Foundation Room. Guests receive complimentary admission to the Lounge after dinner. The Lounge is open daily from 5 pm to 2 am. (or later–that’s Vegas for you!)

Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower Observation Deck

The observation deck at the Stratosphere boasts 360-degree views from the tallest freestanding tower in the United States. While you’re there, enjoy a meal at the Top of the World restaurant. There’s no bad seat in the house when the dining room revolves 360 degrees every 80 minutes.

The Las Vegas Monorail is an easy way to travel to the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower. The Stratosphere is located a short walk from our SAHARA Station. Simply cross Las Vegas Blvd outside the SAHARA Las Vegas and head north until you arrive at the Stratosphere.

Drai’s at The Cromwell

Eleven stories above the Las Vegas Strip, guests will find Drai’s Pool situated on the roof of The Cromwell Hotel& Casino. The Cromwell Las Vegas Pool is open Monday-Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm, and admission is free for those over 21. Guests can enjoy daybed, lounge chairs, a full bar, and Drai’s Cafe.

The rooftop is also home to Drai’s Beachclub, Nightclub, and Afterhours. With these options, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the sweeping views of the Las Vegas Strip.

Paris Las Vegas

Head over to Paris Las Vegas to enjoy several stunning views of Las Vegas. First up, the Eiffel Tower Resturant is a romantic, fine-dining destination with floor to ceiling windowing framing a spectacular view. The restaurant sits 100 feet about the Las Vegas Strip and offers a view of the Fountains at Bellagio.

Paris Las Vegas is also home to BEER PARK, an open-air bar, and restaurant. BEER PARK has the classic, easy-going feel of a baseball stadium. You’ll love spending a few hours enjoying the views, 36 different beers on tap, lawn games, and delightful food. BEER PARK is perfect for groups or if you’re hoping to catch a big game.

SkyBar at the Waldorf Astoria

Located on the 23rd floor of the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas, SkyBar combines a stylish vibe, expertly created cocktails, and a stunning view. The SkyBar is open Sunday – Thursday from 4 pm to 1 am and Friday – Saturday from 12 pm to 2 am.

Their mixologists have created cocktails like The Strip with Hendricks, Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto, lime juice, and cucumber house-made lemongrass syrup. Or the Golden Knight with Sipsmith London Dry Gin, Lillet Blanc Aperol, Peychaud’s bitters, and a grapefruit twist. 

Sip on a spectacular cocktail and soak in all of the Las Vegas lights. It’s almost impossible not to feel the transcendent magic of this view.

Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

The Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas is aptly named for its spectacular view of Las Vegas Blvd. The multi-level pool destination is perfect for pool-goers looking for something to do. The pool hosts musical performances, shows movies on the marquee, and hosts other seasonal events.

Voodoo Lounge at The Rio Las Vegas

Sky-high and 51 stories above Las Vegas, you’ll find the VooDoo Steakhouse, Nightclub & Lounge. This is the best place to catch a 180-degree view of the Las Vegas Strip. From this vantage, you’ll be able to see from the SAHARA Las Vegas to the MGM Grand, plus most of the city beyond the Strip.

VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub at the Rio Las Vegas opens every night at 8 pm. It’s the perfect place to take in the view and enjoy the indoor/outdoor vibe and DJ. Make sure you try their signature drink, the Witch Doctor. It’s topped with dry ice. It will keep you plenty cool on a warm night.

Las Vegas Monorail

There’s just one more view you won’t want to miss. We would be remiss not to include the Las Vegas Monorail in this list. Yes, we’re completely biased, but we also know that the Las Vegas Monorail is one of the most unique ways to see Vegas.

The Las Vegas Monorail route travels four miles and stops at seven stations. Plus, you’ll get to enjoy this view from one of our comfortable, air-conditioned trains and arrive at your destination. That’s a win-win!
