Circus Circus

Circus Circus is a hotel & casino located on North side of the Strip. One of the more historic hotels in Las Vegas, it features circus acts and Midway entertainment, as well as a theme park as well. It was first opened in 1968, complete with a giant circus tent shaped main structure. You also might recognize the Midway from the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds are Forever. This casino was definitely designed with families in mind – with kids-in-tow, and given the amount of circus activity going on, there’s more then enough entertainment here to distract the kids. It’s also one of the more reasonably priced places on the Strip, so if it’s a last minute trip to Vegas, and you want some circus-entertainment to boot? Look no further.
