Home to the D, we really love the Fremont Street Experience and all the wonderful people who come through it. From street performers to those having an awesome night out, this pedestrian area welcomes a number of unique and interesting characters. It’s especially fun when the free entertainment brings bigger crowds and fans of the music. Want a better view of the people on Fremont Street? Try ziplining over them on SlotZilla for an aerial view!
If you’re looking for some intense Las Vegas people watching, all you have to do is walk down The Strip. With pedestrian bridges connecting all the hotels, clubs, restaurants, bars, shows, and more, you get a sea of people moving about and going to different things. This gives you a colorful mix of personalities to look out for and makes for some wonderful people watching. From street performers to eccentric vacationers, you won’t be disappointed.
Where you’re staying might be one of the best places to people-watch in Las Vegas. Since nearly all hotels and resorts have extra amenities such as restaurants, bars, casinos, and pools, that makes them perfect spots for a large number of people passing through. Go to any hotel and grab a drink at the bar while you see different characters walking to their next meal or hyping themselves up to win big at the casino.
Las Vegas pools are some of the best places for people watching, not only because there are some great people there, but because you also get to enjoy the pool. Depending on where you go, you’ll catch a number of personalities. Whether you’re going to a pool party at Encore Beach Club, watching the game at the Stadium Swim® pool amphitheater, or just relaxing by a quiet pool, keep your eyes open for fellow pool-goers.
Speakeasies, dive bars, tiki bars, sports bars, saloons, rooftop lounges, and way more await you as part of the Las Vegas bar scene! And with so many types of bars to choose from, each environment will offer some prime people watching opportunities. Go to Legacy Club on Circa’s 60th floor to see everyone all done up, or put on your cowboy boots and head to the saloon and watch as people two-step the night away.
Casinos are the heart of Las Vegas, and you can really find a variety of people to people-watch while placing bets at the gaming tables. From newbies trying their hand at their first slot machine to high rollers living large in the high limit area, the casino is a vibrant place for seeing those who come to Vegas to gamble a bit. Join in on the fun and meet the people sitting next to you!
Catching a show might be a bit difficult when you are trying to enjoy the show yourself, but the people watching is very exciting before and after the show. Before the show, you will see fans excited to see their favorite Las Vegas artist or act. After, be prepared for a crowd of impressed and happy showgoers. The energy from people seeing Vegas entertainment they love is a great sight to see and be around.
With so many luxury shopping centers in Vegas, it’s hard to miss the people going in and out of them. When stopping by places like the Shops at Crystals, Shops at Bellagio, and The Forum Shops at Caesars, be sure to keep an eye out for all the glamorous shoppers. It sometimes feels more like a fashion show than a shopping experience! Find a restaurant or bar nearby to enjoy the ambiance and people watching.
Similar to the Fremont Street Experience, the LINQ Promenade is a perfect spot for people watching in Las Vegas. Since it is a pedestrian area, many interesting people walk through and enjoy the space. The Promenade has plenty of outdoor seating at bars and restaurants. And for some intense people watching, take a ride on the High Roller to nearly see everyone in Vegas – it’s the world’s second-tallest observation wheel, giving you a great vantage point.
The next time you’re in Las Vegas, look out for all the interesting people around you! It’s always great to appreciate those living and experiencing the city a bit differently from you. When you’re ready for a trip to Vegas to be surrounded by fun characters, be sure to book a room at the D Las Vegas to be in the heart of Fremont Street – undoubtedly the best place for Las Vegas people watching!
