The LINQ for Unique Las Vegas Experiences

Day or night, one of the coolest spots to dine, shop, and gather with friends is the Promenade at The LINQ. This fairly new addition to The Las Vegas Strip, located between The LINQ and Flamingo Las Vegas, is a popular destination with plenty of activities for families, couples, and friends.

The Promenade is an open-air entertainment district that offers a pedestrian-focused neighborhood of shops, eateries, bars, and activities. During my recent visit, I explored several of the venue’s offerings and am delighted to share tips on making the most of your visit:

THE HIGH ROLLER— At 550ft tall, the High Roller is the world’s tallest observation wheel. Guests ride in glass-enclosed spheres that offer breathtaking views of The Strip, the city, and neighboring mountains. Each circle of the wheel provides a 30-minute journey and accommodates up to 40 guests. To enhance your ride, consider the Happy Half Hour open-bar experience, the Chocolate Tasting Experience where an Ethel M Chocolates chocolatier shares history and samples along with wine, or the two-rotation one-hour Yoga Experience with an instructor from Silent Savasana.

COFFEE INFUSED BEVERAGES— 3535 at The LINQ is the only infusion bar you’ll find along The Strip. The bar features 35 custom-made infusions so guests can discover and experiment with truly unique flavors. If you’re a coffee lover like me, you’ll want to try the espresso bean infused Maker’s Mark bourbon. Other fascinating combinations include a Chai peanut butter martini and an Earl Grey infused Bacardi limon rum. Find more menu details at https://www.caesars.com/linq/hotel/things-to-do/3535.

BESTIES BUNK BEDS— The LINQ is arguably one of the trendiest resorts along the famous corners of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road. It has a youthful vibe, chic décor, and amenities that cater to the modern traveler. Now groups of friends can stay and play together with the launch of Bunk Bed Rooms. A variety of bunk options can accommodate up to 12 guests—which is great if you’re having a girlfriend getaway or bachelor budget adventure. Plus, the rooms feature the latest technology so all of your USB gadgets will stay fully charged. Make reservations online at https://www.caesars.com/linq/hotel/rooms.

SERIOUS SPA— There are so many spa options along The Las Vegas Strip, but a truly unique experience is offered at Spa at The LINQ. This is where you’ll find the Himalayan salt therapy cave. In a 45-minute session, guests can unwind and relax in this completely Vegas experience that helps clear congestion and sooth sinuses. The full-service spa also offers facials, body treatments, and a salon, so you’ll be covered head to toe for any last minute pampering needs before heading out for a night on the town.

DINE DAY AND NIGHT— The Promenade is home to a cozy selection of dining from casual pubs to grab-and-go counters. Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery offers a great spot to grab a bite while catching the game. The lobster ravioli at Off The Strip is a go-to menu item. Plus, there is no one more excited than I am about the 24-hour Starbucks in The Promenade. New additions coming soon to The Promenade at The LINQ include The Strip’s first In-N-Out Burger and Gordon Ramsay Fish & Chips, opening this fall.
