But the Strip is often called Las Vegas. The Strip " in a narrower meaning relates only to the section of Las Vegas Boulevard, which lies between Sahara Avenue and Russell Rd, a 6.8 km area. 7 ] However, the word is often used to describe not only the street, but also the various cafeterias and hotels that line the street, and even real estate that is not on the street, but in its vicinity.
Terms such as Strip Area, Resort Corridor or Resort District are sometimes used to indicate a greater geographic area, covering features 1 mile (. 6 km) or more off Las Vegas Boulevard, such as the Hard Rock, Rio, Palms and Hooters Slots. An old fashioned explanation is that the northmost end of the strip is considered the SLS, although guidebooks normally expand it to the stripes 0.4 nautical leagues (0.64 km) to the south.
Situated to the south of Russell Road, Mandalay Bay is the most southerly town on the Strip (the Klondike was the most southerly until 2006, when it was shut down, although it was not in the Strip in some definition and guidebooks). Due to the number and sizes of the hotels, the range of destinations can be very broad.
