I’ve lived in Vegas since 2007 and I always get asked, “what are the coolest ways to see the Las Vegas Strip.” Let me start by saying, people have an extreme love/hate relationship with Las Vegas. And that usually has something to do with how much money they’ve either lost, spent or won during their trip. It’s one of the most famous destinations in the world, and even if you haven’t been to Sin City yourself, chances are you know at least one person who has. And they’ve probably got their very own stories to laugh (or cry) about from that fateful trip. The Las Vegas Strip is also one of the best places in the world to people watch, unless of course, you are one of those people being watched (if we’re being honest with each other, that’s just as likely).

There are few places on the planet that encourage you to blow off more steam than a geyser the way Vegas does. Is it all out debauchery? It can be. Is it liberating? It can be. Is it memorable? One hundred percent. For some of you, I’m about to sum up your Vegas experience in a nutshell. You came, you saw, you were conquered – by that cheap bottle of gas station vodka you insisted on getting instead of paying for drinks at a real bar. So provided you don’t find yourself face down on that stale casino carpet, you’re going to want to look around a little, because what you’ll find is truly spectacular. But how you see it, can make all the difference. These are some of the coolest ways to see the Las Vegas Strip.

Cruising down Las Vegas Boulevard at night is a rite of passage, and just one of the great ways to see the Strip. Just ask any of the bass-bumping cars with all the out-of-state plates – that is, if you can get their attention with all the rump shaking going on inside. In case you hadn’t noticed, the fun starts on the way to Vegas, not just when you arrive. Hence why there’s a party atmosphere on the plain and everyone claps when they land at Harry Reid International Airport (McCarran for all you Vegas old timers, but they changed the name because he was apparently a xenophobic racist).

But one of the easiest, safest and legal ways to pop bottles (and booties) while driving is to hire a limo or party bus. If you do that, you can mind your own business in the back and the driver will be doing the same in the front. Catch my drift?

If you prefer to drive yourself, you might as well do it in style. Picture this, you’re pulling up to a stoplight on the most famous street in the world…in a jet-black Ferrari F8 Spider convertible. The night is warm, the lights are sparkling and the growl of that V8, 710 horsepower motor tickles you in all the right places. Are you a high roller or did you just star in the latest Hollywood blockbuster? Probably neither, but to the poor people sweating to death on the sidewalk, you’re probably both. Renting an exotic car in Las Vegas is not only a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but it may also be your only chance to slide behind the wheel of some of the world’s sexiest cars.
