Skate the strip

Any avid skater knows that the best way to get to know any city is on wheels. Las Vegas is no different. The adult adventure playground might be alive and full of people once the sun goes down, but those willing to make the sacrifice of getting up early, they will find it rewarding.

Boot up and head to the strip early, and you will find streets almost empty, ensuring that you have plenty of room to skate as you blaze past all of the casinos.

Grab your skates and jump on the bus until you get to Mandalay Bay. From here, you will be able to see all of the casinos before the final stop at the Stratosphere. The pavements here are smooth, although a bit slippery, making it easy to move about and gain speed. In no time at all, you will be passing the Luxor, Excalibur, and the Tropicana.

Don’t miss out on the fun

Whilst you might be skating, that doesn’t mean you will miss out on placing a bet or two at the casinos nearby. By accessing, you can place a bet from your phone without having to take your skates off.

Things start to get complicated here as you will need to use the overhead walkways to cross the roads at points. When possible, try and use the escalators, and if they’re not working when you’re there, then be ready to grab the stairs.

Pass the rollercoasters in New York and the world-renowned MGM Grand before passing by the Bellagio. Whilst it isn’t recommended to enter Caesars Palace on skates, it is still a marvelous view from outside.

From here on up, it’s just a short skate to the Stratosphere, where, once you’ve taken your skates off, you can go up to the top floor and enjoy a well-deserved beverage.
