The Best People-Watching Spots in Las Vegas

Take part in one of the best past-times in Sin City

Partake in one of the best hobbies in Las Vegas. People-watching in Sin City goes to the next level with a collection of interesting spots, attractions and more making it easy to view streams of tourists roaming the city. People come here to let down their inhibitions and be whoever they aren’t in their everyday lives—free of judgment. Here, a round up of some of the best spots in Las Vegas to do some people-watching.  

The Linq Promenade

Head to this open-air entertainment district at the center of the Strip for people-watching mixed with a little retail and dining at The Linq Promenade. Sit on the patio at Chayo Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar and drink a margarita while scanning the crowd, or head to Virgil’s Real BBQ for some ribs with that view. Of course, for the ultimate people-watching, head to the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel, for a view of the action from 550 feet in the air. Coming soon, Fly Linq with 10 side-by-side ziplines flying over the promenade.

Mon Ami Gabi 

Steak frites with a view? Yes, please. Mon Ami Gabi on the Strip has arguably the best people-watching views in Las Vegas with its sidewalk patio and location right across from the Fountains at Bellagio. That patio doesn’t take reservations, so get there early and wile away the afternoon with a bottle of wine.

Fremont Street Experience
The people found on the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas might make up some of the best characters in Las Vegas. Head up to Troy Liquor Bar at the Golden Nugget to look down on the crowds, wander the five-block pedestrian mall as one of the free live bands plays or watch the shows on the VivaVision canopy that’s lit up with 12.5 million lights and 550,000 watts of sound. Slotzilla even offers a zipline view of the action from above. 


The Park

Walk over to the west side of the Strip for The Park, the open-air play area between New York-New York and the Park MGM, all anchored by T-Mobile Arena. Sure, before and after any concert or event, streams of people walk through, so grab a bench and let the visual parade begin. Or head to one of the restaurants such as Beerhaus, Bruxie, California Pizza Kitchen or Sake Rok on Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting at 5 pm for free live music and $5 wine, beer and shots.
