oh great!!! best of luck to all. aim to outlast the entire field
My wife and I are from Canada have walked over many times. We even saw a dog once whose thoughtful owners put padded shoes on him. The owners were young, tattooed everwhere with the hairstyles to match but they were really nice. It really is an easy walk even when you have drank enough to kill an ordinary mortal...in either direction and at any time.
Regarding food, we enjoyed Ramsey's various locations over the years but they have slipped in terms of quality (food not served hot...fine dining turned into sports bar arena and a few other things) but their sticky toffee pudding is still the best ever.
Yes. Canada to Nevada would be a long walk.
I would recommend trying Ramsey's Beef Wellington at the Paris at least once. The two other Ramsey restaurants are at Caesar's and Planet Hollywood respectively. If you have a diamond card or higher your lineup time will be short(er).
To complement poker I would suggest spending some time at the blackjack, pai gow and craps tables where your risk is minimized with intelligent play. (It's nice to have gourmet meals comped...Martorano's ..etc.)
I have walked the entire strip as well as several streets parallel to it, meandered around Red Rock, walked from new to old Vegas (and back) a few times.. as well as some very pretty and very gritty areas.
Regarding eating out (or in) generally speaking, have an appetite, be among good friends and have something to look forward to after your repast. And if you are of the mind to, you can help a homeless person or someone in need not with cash but rather with something like a restaurant card (Subway...) so they can have something decent.
Here are a few things that may help. If you have it, use the "Open Table" app after looking at restaurants that use it. Two places that we liked were Martorano's (NOT the one in the Paris) and Hugo's Cellar. There was a great Italian restaurant with "all you can drink wine" and good food that had a very, very old musician there who would come to your table..s..l..o..w...l..y... and play a few bars. We liked this place but I forget the name.
The Flamingo is a great place for breakfast downstairs. Carmine's, within the Caesar forums, (similar to the NYC version regarding the quantity served) is great but beware the price. Ruth Chris and Mon Ami Gabi (at the Paris) are good also.
Room service for breakfast, a mid-day patio meal at Gabi's with an evening meal at Hugo's.....walking as much as possible and sipping your favorite Margarita as you go....then hitting the tables for about 4-6 hours (to keep your casino host happy)...is one way among many to pass the day. The outlying areas like the Hoover Dam ...etc..should also be seen.:driver:
A final note, the High Roller ferris wheel is much more enjoyable WITH the bar.
Love that place, Dakota. Caesar's is an awesome place!I stayed at Caesars for the first time ever this trip. They sent me an offer for a free room for 3 nights so I took them up on it. They let me upgrade for $27 - have no idea what I would have had if I hadn't upgraded but I did and had a very nice room.
It was in the Palace Tower and and was almost 800 sq ft. When you walk in there is a bathroom on the left and then a hallway. Before the end of the hallway there was a 2nd bathroom. The 2 bathrooms were joined by a cool shower in the middle and the 2nd one also had a large bathtub.
The bedroom area was spacious and there was a living room at the end of the room. I had a great view of the pools.
The toiletries were nice and the room was nicely decorated. I would definitely stay there again.
