Las Vegas: Fun Things to Do on the Linq Promenade

LINQ Promenade, Las Vegas, Vegasinsider,
The Linq Promenade is an "off the strip" experience, located next to the Linq Hotel. If you  don't like the crowds of the main strip, this side strip where you will love to hang out!  It offers as much thrill and excitement, but on a smaller scale.

Take a stroll off the strip and enjoy a fine assortment of eateries, boutiques, spirits and entertainment.  This is my new go to spot in Las Vegas.  It only took 5 visits for me to discover it, ha! Next time you visit Vegas check out Fun Things to do on the LINQ Promenade.

Eat In-N-Out Burger

Burgers your way, animal fries and fifty vibes are the signatures of this beloved fast food chain. In-n- Out started in California in 1948, and has expanded to other states.  If you've never set your chops on one of these juicy burgers, you are missing out!  Whenever I fly to Vegas or CA, In and Out is always my first stop upon arrival. 

 Rumors do fly about a "secret menu" and many wonder what's on it. According to the website, there isn't really a menu with hidden choices.  You can ask for your hamburger a certain way: double double, triple, or quadruple patties. Wow, I can't even imagine trying to eat one that big!  Also the fries are fresh cut and delicious.  If you want to get the ultimate In-n-Out experience, do order the animal fries: yummy!

Ride the High Roller

The High Roller Wheel is the world's highest observation wheel. The views from the top will be sure to take your breath away. Take in a 360-degree view of the strip and the surrounding Las Vegas Valley.

If you like to hang out in the sky, this is the ride for you!  The 28 cabins are very spacious and can be reserved for special events, corporate parties, or group rides.  An upgrade ride is available offering an open bar with your own bartender.  Each rotation takes about 30 minutes.

Overdose on Chocolate

Chocolate, yes please! No need to visit San Francisco to indulge in the decadent treats Ghirardelli is famous for. Step right up order a thick chocolate shake or sundae, and start counting calories.  I walked by this shop 2 or 3 times before giving into temptation. 



Oh my, it was a difficult decision with so many irresistible sweets staring you in the face!  The hot fudge used in all the sundaes and milkshakes is homemade.  Ghirardelli is known for top quality goodness and rich ingredients. Make sure you arrive on an empty stomach, the tasty treats are very filling.

Shop Specialty Boutiques

Nine specialty shops are available to browse and get your shopaholic fix.  From the fashion savvy hipster to the Harley Davidson fan, there is shopping for everyone.  The famous Honolulu Cookie Company has a shop here too, with the best shortbread cookies you ever tasted.

Enjoy Exciting Night Life

Just walking up and down the Promenade at night was excitement enough for me! I love all the  flashy signs, and glitzy lights illuminating the street. The High Roller hiding out back and the palms swaying in the breeze, make for a perfect night out.


If you like to play beer pong and sample a wide menu of beer offerings, O'Sheas Irish Pub is a fun stop for the night. Live music is offered along with outdoor seating.  Also popular on the promenade for nighttime are Jimmy Kimmel's Comedy Club and American Beer & Cocktails.

Explore the Flamingo Hotel

The Flamingo is flamboyant and colorful, and that's why I love it! It is one of the three oldest hotels on the strip. The other two are the Tropicana and Caesars Palace. These 3 hotels are historical icons, and so much fun to explore.

This hotel was originally the "Pink Flamingo Hotel and Casino, associated with Bugsy Siegel the famous mobster. You can read more about his story here.  Enjoy vintage vibes for your photo shoots, or throw back to the 70's and see the Donny and Marie show.

Bowl to Live Music

Bowling is always fun, and who knew you could do it near the strip, with live music to boot.  Brooklyn Bowl is a destination  music venue in Las Vegas. Enjoy a game of bowling while rockin the night away to live musical performances.  There are also 6 different cocktail bars located throughout the bowling alley.

Fly Linq

There are only two places that I know of in the city to do zip lining. This one at the Linq and one in old town Vegas in Fremont.  Get the adrenaline going and have an electrifying ride through the sky. You will be gliding 12 stories above the promenade.

 All dare devils line up and experience the thrill of your life! I've never tried a zipline before. rest assured my first time won't be flying over a concrete jungle.  I'll only zipline where there is lots of green pasture or padding below!

Coming soon in a few months to the LINQ Promenade a modern day Candy Land: I love Sugar . I"m really bummed it was not open when I visited this month for my birthday. The new flagship store will be a destination Vegas attraction.

 It will feature over 14,000 feet of candy paradise, and will be one of the world's most visited tourist spots. OH, and don't miss the 2nd floor where you can get lost in a chocolate haven.  Also on tap: candy martini's- imagine that!  This store is where everyone will be vying to capture the most instagram worthy moments.  I can't WAIT to go back just to see this store!

Next time you go to Vegas, I hope you will check out  the Linq Promenade. If you are wondering what to wear in Vegas: check out my ultimate style guide here & additional travel tips here.  Happy travels, hope to see you next week for my continued series on visiting Las Vegas.

  2. So much fun! The only thing I miss about my last job was the annual trips to Vegas. The Linq ferris wheel is a ton of fun, especially when you book the all-you-can-drink room!
