When we lived in Vegas back in 2013, the LINQ Promenade was brand new and the most local hang-out on the Strip (we locals don’t visit the Strip much). Since it was tucked away, most visitors didn’t know about it yet. Since then, they added many attractions, and it now draws a much larger crowd, mostly tourists.
With 35+ restaurants and shops and the iconic High Roller, it’s a wonderful outdoor spot to walk around, eat, and people watch.
The photo taken below was when the Strip was shut down and hardly anyone was around, but the crowds are already coming back.
