Need a break from the casino? Enjoy our blue skies and warm weather with a leisurely walk at The LINQ Promenade.
When our family comes to visit us here in Vegas, I take them to The LINQ Promenade for a literal breath of fresh air. Even though the restaurants can be “touristy” like the rest of The Strip, their outdoor patios make an ideal spot to enjoy a beer or a margarita when the weather’s nice.

What’s the LINQ Promenade?
The LINQ Promenade is a small outdoor collection of shops, bars, and restaurants. It leads into its main attraction, the High Roller.
Tickets for the 30-minute Ferris-wheel ride start at $9 for kids and $22 for adults during the day time. In addition to a great view of the whole valley, you can upgrade to open bar during your ride for $13 more.
What’s new in 2019
FLY LINQ zip line is a new addition to the LINQ Promenade. Tickets start at $25 and they’re open late at night until 1:00 AM every day.
Also opening this year is Kind Heaven, an interactive Southeast-Asian themed entertainment spot, and Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club.
Getting there & parking
The LINQ Promenade is by the middle of the Las Vegas Strip (the best place to be, in my opinion). Its entrance is in between Margaritaville and The LINQ Hotel & Casino. It starts as a narrow walkway with the High Roller Ferris wheel up ahead.
Paid parking for the LINQ Promenade is available at The LINQ Hotel & Casino’s parking garage. For a list of current parking fees, visit the official Caesars Entertainment website here.
Interesting stores include Goorin Bros. Hat Shop and Honolulu Cookie Company. There’s been a lot of changes the past year since I first wrote this post. If you’ve been here before, it’s worth a stop if you’re around the area to see what’s new.
Places to eat & drink
The LINQ Promenade is a great place to go for mid-priced restaurants and outdoor seating. In-N-Out Burger has been consistently good the five or six times I’ve eaten there. If you want to try something else beyond burgers and fries, order fish & chips from Gordon Ramsey’s Fish & Chips or a sushi burrito from Jaburritos.
Where to party
There’s still plenty of things to do at the LINQ Promenade if you find yourself walking through in the evening. You can see a concert or go bowling at Brooklyn Bowl. You can watch a show at the new Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club.
You can grab dinner while listening to country music at Virgil’s Real Barbecue or Latin music at Chayo. If you’re here with friends, you can play beer pong at O’Shea’s. If you just want to drink a pint while watching a game, enjoy one (or two) at Yard House or Tilted Kilt.
Things to do with kids
Since it’s outdoors, you won’t have to deal with pit bosses glaring at you when your kids get too close to a slot machine.
If you’ve never seen one before, definitely try the Sprinkles Cupcake ATM at least once.
The LINQ Promenade is one of my favorite places on the Las Vegas Strip. My husband and I like to take our time walking around while snacking on something.
Usually, we’ll grab a cheap lunch at In-N-Out and get a cupcake from Sprinkles. When we’re there during the evening, we eat poké nachos and try new craft beer at Yard House. Some of you might scoff at that idea since it’s a chain restaurant, but I love the relaxed atmosphere (wearing a hoodie and sandals is okay), comfy booths (great for big groups), and dimmed lighting.
Hopefully one day we’ll get to try the High Roller!
