While there's no shortage of gorgeous, scantily clad women in Las Vegas, in all likelihood, a higher concentration of them can be found at the world's only Hooters Casino Hotel, just one block east of the Strip on Tropicana Avenue and one mile from McCarran International Airport.A resort with a casual party atmosphere, Hooters Casino Hotel has loads of beautiful women on staff -- including Hooters Grills in the namesake restaurant donning their trademark skimpy orange shorts and skin-tight white tank tops. Known for its irreverent spirit, the resort offers more than just eye candy. Guests at Hooters Casino Hotel, both male and female, are treated to comfortable rooms, plenty of exciting casino action, a variety of dining options and more.In the Night Owl Showroom, Kevin Lepine hypnotizes audience members to do funny and naughty things in "Hypnosis Unleashed."  A beach-bumming feel permeates Hooters Casino Hotel, right down to the image of footprints on the floor of the elevators leading up to the rooms and colorful surf boards on the walls. The pool area is open 24/7 and features two tropical themed pools, complete with a waterfall. And Hooters Girls are on hand to serve up cold beverages at the pool bar.At Hooters Casino Hotel, you can also find a drink in Pete & Shorty's anytime.  Inside the casino, wood flooring lines the general pathways while festive lights are strung along the ceiling. The action is always hopping with beautiful girls behind the tables to deal games including blackjack. Several Hooters-themed slots, such as Blazen Hooters, can be found among the 550 slot and video poker machines spread throughout the gaming floor. There is also a poker room and a William Hill sports book.During NASCAR season, the Hooters Girls may face a little competition, as all eyes turn to a different sleek spectacle on the casino floor: The actual Hooters-sponsored Thunderbird raced by the late Alan Kulwicki to win the 1992 American NASCAR Winston CupBetween gambling, swimming and ogling, the typical Hooters Casino Hotel guest can work up quite an appetite. But at Hooters hunger is never an issue. Along with breakfast, lunch, dinner and, of course, chicken wings in Hooters Restaurant, you can enjoy fine dinner offerings in Mad Onion Fine Food & Spirits.

Prominently positioned just west of Las Vegas Boulevard, this multi-colored beacon of a hotel is a close neighbor to all of the action on the Strip making it easy for guests to venture around Sin City, but from the wide variety of shows, bars and restaurants located within the hotel, you could easily find yourself staying on the property.Seamlessly integrating its Brazilian inspiration into every element of the hotel, the lively aesthetic of the brightly colored carpeting, signage and décor of the Rio will make it seem as if you've arrived in the middle Carnival season. And adding to the energetic environment is when the crowds amass for the prestigious World Series of Poker held every summer. If you're not here during poker's premiere event you can still enjoy gambling as the Rio has a sprawling casino floor with 1,200 slot machines and 80 different table games.Drawing in crowds year-round are the hotel’s buffets -- The Carnival World Buffet and the Village Seafood Buffet. Off the two, the Village Seafood Buffet earns the greatest amount of praise. Just imagine loading your plate with unlimited lobster, crab legs, shrimp, sushi and other swimming selections, eating it all… and then doing it again. Drooling? That can become a reality. Both of these buffets are usually packed with patrons, so be prepared to wait, especially during any holiday weekend.If you are not hungry enough to attempt fitting the contents of the ocean into your belly but hungry enough to think about it, then we are sure that you will find a non-buffet restaurant to suit your needs with the selection that the Rio has to offer. Among the restaurants are Martorano's by the tough, tattooed Philadelphia chef Steve Martorano is a sure bet where rich, Italian-American favorites are served in excess; the All-American Bar & Grille where they are known for their dry-aged Angus beef; Pho Da Nang with exceptionally authentic Vietnamese cuisine; Buzio's Seafood Restaurant known for their fresh oysters; and there is the one-of-a-kind dim sum menu at KJ Dim Sum & Seafood Chinese Restaurant. For quicker bites, Hash House A Go Go has creatively prepared, oversized portions -- which include everything from breakfast and brunch to dinner items or you can grab a meal at the BK Whopper Bar or the Sports Deli, which situated near the six giant screens in the busy race and sports book.If you are looking to transform your dining experience into your nightlife experience, we know you’ll love the succulent steak and one of the most striking views of Las Vegas at VooDoo Steak and Rooftop Nightclub, situated on the 50th and 51st floors of the resort's Masquerade Tower. And while you’re up there, go ahead and check out the thrilling VooDoo Zip Line – a zip line ride, where guests soar more than 800 feet from the VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub in the hotel's Masquerade Tower to the Ipanema Tower. The 70-second journey boasts stunning 360-degree views of the Las Vegas Strip and adds an element of daring excitement to any occasion.Whether or not you opt for a ride between the towers, you can either stay and party at the rooftop club until the Strip’s neon tubes flicker off with the rise of the morning sun, or you could slip off and catch one of the hotel’s in house shows. Penn & Teller, the quirky magic duo, have their own theater at the Rio, as do the hunky and ever-famed Chippendales dancers. The Crown Theater hosts an array of acts, including "MJ Live," a tribute to Michael Jackson starring impersonator Michael Firestone, comedian Eddie Griffin and The Rat Pack Is Back, which brings the sounds of the legendary performers to life, and there is the seductive topless revue "X Rocks," which showcases sexy dancers and steamy choreography to the soundtrack of heart-pounding rock songs.And when you get thirsty from all that you’ve done or from thinking about all that you’re about to do, swing by the sexy Flirt Lounge in the lobby of the Chippendales Theatre or the high-tech I-Bar, where you can order drinks from a touch-screen computer built into your tabletop.Since this is Vegas, we know that there is a good chance that you will not be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed the morning (or afternoon) after a night out on the town. The best detox is to re-tox (well at least we think so). So grab a cold one and soak up the sun with an afternoon at the hotel’s indulgent pool complex. With golden sand and cascading waterfalls, this complex inspired by the Brazilian paradise is a necessity. If sun and fun is not how you like to recover, opt instead for a day of pampering at the Rio Spa & Salon. Shops are found throughout the property including The Wine Cellar & Tasting Room, Fashion 101 and the Harley-Davidson store, shoppers can get their fix of retail therapy on the property, however, the resort provides shuttle service to and from Harrah's for those who want to venture out onto the Strip as well.
 

Would one want to walk to the Strip?

Yes!! just remember to bring lots of water! There is a lot to see, so also wear comfortable shoes.
