- Stratosphere TowerMember ofBudget TravelersLocal CultureOutdoor Enthusiasts+ 7Sep 25, 2013
This is one of the best vista points around. It is THE BEST vista point for lost wages IMHO. So what if it is 16 or 18 bucks to go up top if you are not staying at stratosphere... No where else can view everything happening so easily and take it all in.
You can see the North Las Vegas Race Track... Lake mead in the distance... The air traffic buzzing into and out of the airport like bees to a hive... or the Strip. The times I have been to the top of the Stratosphere, I have wanted to, but didnt take a trip on the rides (someday I will). There are three; one a roller coaster, one a bouncer, and I cant remember what the third is... but all seem like fun when you are over 1000 feet up.
PRO TIP: If you are staying at Stratosphere, you get a free trip up to the top of the tower!
There is also a restaurant up at the top which I want to try someday. I bet it is a romantic view kind of place even if it is not romantic in nature.
I also happen to love the view of the mountains and how the sun glints off of them here n there, let alone how they change hue depending on the sunlight as well.
So if you couldnt tell, this is one of my favorite places/activities to go to while in Vegas.Recommended for:

I've been to every tower in North America and next to the CN Tower in Toronto the Stratosphere is the next best. The view is incredible and of you go up for happy hour watch the sunset and the strip come alive. Don't forget to go to the top out side for an even better view.Recommended for:

From its roller coaster which was the only thing I dared going on, I wasn't going on the Big Shot, X scream wasn't there at the time to the glass floor a thousand feet up, nowhere can you get anything like its views in the whole city.

What a beautiful view of Vegas!
Free admission if you are staying at the hotel. I dont know if its worth paying $17 per person but if your a guest its a must! They have some great (SCARY) rides which you have front row seats to watch from the observation deck.

The staff at Stratosphere Tower is incredibly accommodating. They are just awesome. I've never stayed here before but after such incredible service, I will in the future. This hotel is located at the top of the Strip and I don't usually travel that far north, but friends were staying here and I made my way over. Great pool area, the view can't be beat, and the place oozes hospitality.

The Casino and the Hotel part is not that nice, but we explored the Stratosphere Tower and went to their extreme thrills at the top of the Tower. It was super fun.
It was really nice to go 100 floors + above Las Vegas to enjoy the view and try those extreme rides.

I went hoping for amazing views of the strip, but there is this huge fence in the way, and no way to get it out of your photo. I TOTALLY understand having the fence, but visitors are blocked from going up to the fence. Otherwise, I could stick my lens in between two of the metal fence posts and take a photo, like the Empire State Building in NYC or the Space Needle in Seattle. Oh well. Otherwise, it's fun to watch people on the rides.
Also, it costs way too much to just visit the top, and the process of getting up there is long and cumbersome (making you take photos in front of a green screen).Recommended for:

Some of the best views of Vegas are from atop the Stratosphere. Lines can be long to get up there and it can be pretty expensive if you decide to do the thrill rides too. All a very good adrenaline rush though.Recommended for:
