By February 3, 2021Travel

When you think of Las Vegas, The Strip is the focal point of luxurious stays, memorable entertainment, and elaborate dining experiences. However, some of the true hidden gems that the city has to offer are found right off the strip. These spots provide some of the best service and personal quality touches that complement the popularity of the Vegas strip. Here are five places to visit the next time you’re in Las Vegas that will add to your city experience:

The Neon Museum

Vegas up in lights off the strip. If you’re looking for a bit of Las Vegas history, The Neon Museum gives you the full, flashy experience. Located just beyond the famous Fremont Street District, this outdoor display of some of the most iconic casino signs is something you must add to your Vegas hit list. Take a guided tour and encounter the lights that made the city famous. Pad your tour with extra time to experience the Brilliant light show. You’ll feel like you’ve been transported back in time to Sinatra at the Sands. (Photo credit: The Neon Museum)


French cuisine with flawless presentation is one of Partage’s signature traits. A hidden luxurious dining experience located minutes from the strip is the perfect place for date night or a special occasion. Whether you reserve a seat at the bar or in the main dining room, you will have an intimate and elegant experience complete with impeccable attention to dish detail courtesy of Chef Yuri Szarzewski. Partake in one of the multi-course tasting menus, and try their signature pithiviers dish. This quality experience awaits you. (Photo credit: Sabin Orr) (Reservations required)

Red Rock Resort and Casino

Looking for the full Las Vegas resort experience off the strip? You’ve come to the right place. Red Rock Resort and Casino has everything in one location. Located in Summerlin and overlooking the famous Red Rock landscape of the valley, you’ll have everything you need whether you stop by to dine and play, or stay for the full experience. And if you’re a foodie, this resort is your oyster. Enjoy the upscale ambience of T-Bones Chophouse, the rustic atmosphere of Hearthstone, or have a beer and watch the game at Yard House. Just as you have options on the strip, you have options at Red Rock Resort and Casino. (Photo credit: Station Casinos Social Media)

Monzú Italian Oven and Bar

The perfect Italian meal complete with the best craft cocktails and Italian wine is waiting for you off the strip. Chef Giovanni Mauro has assembled a quality Sicilian menu that will leave you speechless – and to top it off, the service is on point. From the minute you walk through the doors at Monzú, you feel like a VIP and a guest in Chef Gio’s kitchen. His pizza and bread are made from naturally leavened dough matured over five days. There’s no guilt when eating this bread, because it’s healthy; and it’s unlike anything you’ll eat in town. Some menu highlights include the Caramelle pasta, the Vegas Meets Italy pizza, and the Mega Board (it’s seriously epic).

Westin Lake Las Vegas

If you’re looking for a getaway within a getaway, visit Lake Las Vegas. About 35 minutes from the strip, you can experience a quiet, lake front stay with all the amenities. Rooms with desert and golf course views, and a full-service spa make this resort a relaxing oasis with a luxury feel. Floor to ceiling windows at the back of the property overlook the lake, and Arabesque Bar provides the perfect spot to enjoy a drink with a view. If you’re into recreation and choose to stay outdoors, check out the Recreation Bay Golf Club and tennis courts on the property.  (Photo credit: Westin Lake Las Vegas)
