My trips over the last 5 years I have not ventured off the strip for gambling or eating. I tend to gamble on the strip (mid roller $25 to $150 BJ player) and have been fortunate, for the most part, to get comped rooms on most of my stays. I have stayed at various hotels which include: Venetian, Paris, TI, MC, Ballys, Flamingo, MGM Grand, Mandalay Bay etc. I enjoy staying on the strip which usually means I gamble and eat around where I stay. I did visit downtown once about 5 years ago for a day, and have not been back since. I am planning an upcoming trip and I'm not sure if I should bother venturing downtown again to check out the hotels, entertainment or dining options. I have read some posts on the new DTG, which has mixed reviews. Am I missing anything by not visiting the downtown hotels? Thanks for your input!
