The Mike & Carla Morning Show

A night time view looking down the Las Vegas Strip

The one thing we can all agree on is that we have a very unique skyline. But where are those places to take in the best views of Las Vegas? Depending on what you’re looking for, whether it be the strip, the overall view or with the mountains as the backdrop…you have quite the choice.

With The Mike & Carla Morning Show being apart of Las Vegas for decades, we think we are well versed when it comes to the best views of our city. And if you’ve lived here as well for as many years, you have a pretty good idea of where to direct people too. And then again, if you’re coming in for the “Big Game”, take notes and it’s your first time, take notes!

What Are Some Of The Best Views Of The Strip?

For me, one of my favorites is just outside Boulder City driving north. Coming down 95, specially as the sun is setting, to see the entire city with the lights is amazing! Same could be said as you comeback from Southern California on the 15. About the same time, as you hit that curve, between the two mountains. It’s just like in the movies…beautiful!

Closer to the city, you have a few choices as well. Depending on what you’re looking for…especially for that perfect picture. And the time of day or night is a little more important. Me personally, I like the night time view of our Strip as a backdrop for a picture or just hanging out to take it all in!

If you’re looking for a nice panoramic view, The Ghost Bar at The Palms or the Top of the Rio. Facing the Las Vegas Strip on the 51st and 52nd floors, it still offers one of the better views of the strip, down town and all around.

    Still one of the best views of Las Vegas overall. Day or night, The Top of the World Restaurant at the Strat is 800 feet above the north end of the Strip. The cool thing about this view, it rotates 360 degrees while you take in the view. You get the full Monty of the entire valley! A must if you’re coming to Las Vegas!
