Although I love the MGM, we often stay at Bally's, Paris, or Planet Hollywood, because we love the location of these three hotels. They're centered on the strip, and it encourages us to walk even more during our trips because we can get to so many locations very quickly. We only use Uber if we've gone shopping, and the bags won't fit into our backpack.
Water is a MUST to carry when walking in Vegas, to avoid dehydration. Lugging two 40oz. bottles of water in the 110+ degree temperatures make the walks a little more challenging.
This year, we tried a new restaurant called Tacos El Gordo, which is located at the north end of the strip.
