    Which is the preferred side of the strip for you guys?? As i stayed on the west side of the street during my stay, I tended to visit the hotels (NYNY, bellegio, aria etc) on the same side more often than across the road, and it almost felt like I was on the wrong side when i ventured across!!

    Is this a bit odd, or do people generally favour one side from the other?

    The MLife properties which I tend to favor are all, with the exception of MGM, of the west side. My favorite part of the east side of the strip begins at PH down to Wynn/Encore. So I guess I dig both sides.

    I'm a CET loyalist, but hate actual Caesars, so I'm walking on the east side of LV Blvd a vast majority of the time. The casino I cross the street the most for is Cosmo. I have also stepped in mirage every one of my 14 trips, so I now feel obligated to at least walk in even though I really don't play there much.

    We've stayed at pretty much every place on both sides, don't know that we prefer one to the other. It's all one street.

    Our home base is Planet Hollywood and we normally make a big circle hitting Cosmo , Bellagio , Cromwell , Bally's and then Paris before ending up back at PHO. Now the wife has a machine she has to play at Margaritaville every trip and I can't be that close to the TAG without sampling some tasty treats. Last year I hit diamond for the first time and the diamond lounge at Caesars has now become one of our must stops in the afternoon. So I would have to say the center or bullseye of the strip.

    We've stayed on both sides over the years, but for the last few we've stayed exclusively on the east side.

    I tend to spend more time in MLife properties. So I guess I do have a preference.

    Because of City Center, east side all the way. It's easier to walk from center to south strip on that side.

    I much prefer the east side cause the casinos(mgm, Ph, paris, Cromwell, flamingo, linq, harrahs are just a few steps from the strip on the other side the buildings are far from the street

    I tend to prefer the West side, but wherever we stay, it seems we cross over very little. I never gave it that much thought until reading other replies.

    I always walk up and down the Strip on the East side and hit all those Casinos along the way. I have never witnessed the Bellagio fountains from the West side walk, always have the fence in my view and found myself thinking I should walk on that side sometime so I can witness the fountains more clearly.

    I prefer the East side. Better mix of properties with much more personality

    Mostly east side. When I have a free evening in LV I love to casino-surf and people-watch and stuff all the way from say Casino Royale up to Planet Hollywood.
