  the rio
by doug48

the south and central section of the strip is perfectly safe for tourists day and night. the north strip gets a little seedy around circus circus and the stratosphere area. i would not advise walking to downtown from the stratoshere after dark. las vegas offers a number of nice casino hotels off the strip. some examples are the hard rock casino, terribles, palace station, and the rio. because of las vegas' large alcoholic, drug addicted, and homeless population i would not advise walking to these casinos after dark. a taxi fare is cheap insurance to avoid getting mugged. from harahs on the strip they offer a shuttle to and from the rio.
