    Hello,

    Sunrise - where are the best places to take pictures of the Strip?

    Mix and Vodoo and Eiffel Tower will be close so early in the morning, I think.

    The top of the Stratosphere is a wonderful place to view everything, especially at night. The lights of Vegas at night are beautiful but atop the Stratosphere, they are spectacular.

    Drive out to red rock. In the morning, it shouldn't take more than 30 to 45 minutes, and form the mountains you can see the sunrise coming up behind the entire strip. great view

    From the couch of your East facing Skyloft at MGM. Beautiful.

    The view of the sunrise isn't prefect, but the 23 floor view from the Mandarin Oriental while sipping their tea is great.

    top floor at mandalay bay - is it a terrace ?

    I booked my first night for Mandalay Bay, because I will arrive very late at night and the MB is much cheaper than the Encore.
    So do you think, it will be no problem to go by elevator to the top floor to take sunrise pictures ??
    Top floor sounds to be a very good idea :)

    If you are referring to Mix, I'm not so sure that it is accessible at sunrise. It sure is a beautiful place to take pictures at sunset though!

    VOODOO Lounge would be great, but I'm pretty sure you couldn't
    get up there at that hour..............................could you?
    I know that my upper floor, Ipanima Tower rooms sure have a great
    view...the windows are like one giant HD TV screen and it's ALL SKY!
    When the sun first starts to light the sky...high flying jets have left
    their white vapor trails all over the sky...they explode in bright white
    on top of the dark blue, powder blue, yellow and orange on the horizon.
    All the Strip properties take second billing to that view!
