    Hello, which areas of the vegas strip are most strip-like? I think when most people think of a "strip" they think of a street that is densely populated with dining and entertainment options that are easily walkable from each other.

    However, this is not the case for at least a few areas of the vegas strip. For example, 4 seasons has the highway on one side and a 24-hour subway across the street which is about a 1/4 mile walk. There doesn't seem to be much else around there.

    If you walk out of encore hotel to the street the closest building nearby seems to be Circus Circus which is about 1 mile down the street. There seems to be a good amount of development around MGM which is south strip I believe. So which areas of the vegas strip are the most strip like?

    I think you answered your own question. The Strip hotels that have other hotels close to them.

    logically that makes sense. when hotels are closer together businesses have more incentive to open nearby because they have a bigger potential customer base. To be more specific, can you please list off a few hotels that seem to fall into this category? The MGM appears to be 1 example. What are some others?

    But why walk across the street from Four Seasons when you could just take the elevator up one floor to Mandalay Bay casino level where there are a number of food options at all price points? That's in addition to the two awesome restaurants (Charlie Palmer Steak and Veranda) available within the Four Seasons itself, and the Foundation Room, which is a quick elevator ride away. Or you could walk to additional food options in the Shops at Mandalay Place between MB and Luxor. And there's still no need to walk outside. Plus, both MB and Luxor have Food Courts for sandwiches and fast food, so there's no shortage of food choices.

    We often stay at Four Seasons and I can't imagine why anyone would walk across the road to a Subway, but to each his own.

    @kelly - thanks for that info! I'm familiar with the 3 restaurants you listed @ 4S and none seemed that great for a quick bite (too formal) but you're right - I did not even think about the possible options available @ MB! based on your feedback it sounds like quick and casual dining options are plentiful. will check those out next time I stay @ 4S. thanks!
