Vegas reborn: the revitalisation of the North Strip and Downtown Las Vegas
First things first: no, Las Vegas doesn’t begin and end with its infamous Strip. Enticing, casino-packed, and neon-lit as it may be, the Strip is only one part of this city’s urban buzz. And for those looking to explore a different side of Sin City, there’s never been a better time to visit.
Take Downtown Las Vegas. Found northeast of the Strip, the area is host to a flourishing Arts District, has seen the launch of many leading restaurants, and has established itself as a new cultural nexus in Vegas. And then there’s the North Strip, which, after years of being considered a veritable no-man’s-land, is seeing new stirrings of life. Once you’ve clocked in the requisite time seeing the Strip’s sights, then, be sure to veer off the main path. There’s a whole different side of Vegas to see.
