You’ve heard of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, obviously. Who hasn’t? But did you know it’s possible to own a modern home in a resort condo community at the south end of The Strip, reaping all the Vegas-style luxurious rewards year-round?
The South Strip area is removed enough from the hustle and bustle to give you privacy, close enough to the action to give you easy access, and upscale enough to give you the full Vegas experience.
South of the 215 freeway, the South Strip’s community resorts are the South Point Hotel Casino & Spa, Silverton Casino Hotel, and the M Resort Spa Casino. These properties are popular with locals for the proximity to home and relative distance from tourist-driven casinos. Parking is ample, amenities are abundant, and prices are fantastic.
South Strip Amenities
If you’d like to venture into the action, Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino is only a 10-minute drive. From there you can easily move deeper into the heart of The Strip … Luxor Hotel & Casino, Excalibur Hotel & Casino, Tropicana Las Vegas, New York New York Hotel & Casino, and MGM Grand are all just minutes away.
The South Strip is the perfect haven for young, hip professionals who appreciate the best of both worlds. The area is populated with mid and high-rise condominium towers that offer upscale resort-style amenities, all under one roof. Swim or sunbathe by the exclusive sparkling pool, work out in your own building instead of having to join a gym, and take advantage of resident-only events, meeting areas, recreational facilities and more.
If you need to travel out of town, the McCarran International Airport is 10 minutes from your door. You also have easy access to all the major freeways, including the I-15 and 215.

This includes large plazas with offerings from home décor stores to office supplies to everyday household needs, as well as plenty of bars and restaurants.
In fact, for all your shopping needs, you don’t have to go far to find anything you could want.
