AAA Editor Notes
Flamingo Las Vegas is at 3555 Las Vegas Blvd. S. (just n. of Flamingo Rd.). Today's Las Vegas Strip would be unrecognizable to the crowd who attended the Dec. 26, 1946, ribbon-cutting at Bugsy Siegel's showplace, the fabulous Pink Flamingo Hotel & Casino. The hotel towered a whopping four stories above the desert floor. The opening night headliner was Jimmy Durante, who demolished a $1,600 piano onstage. Top that spectacle, Gaga.

The third hotel built on the Strip is now its most senior citizen, although decades of tearing down, rebuilding and remodeling mean that not one of the original buildings survives. Three massive hotel towers featuring more than 3,500 guest rooms and suites—including the recently renovated Flamingo Rooms and Suites, and the new Bunk Bed Rooms and Suites form a horseshoe around the sprawling central pool and wildlife habitat area. Among the lush, 25 acres, you'll find a wide variety of rescued animals, including more than 60 exotic birds including Chilean flamingos, 20 turtles and more than 300 large fish, as well as a bronze plaque commemorating the site of Siegel's original structure. The resort also hosts a variety of entertainers including Paula Abdul, Piff The Magic Dragon and the late-night adult revue X Burlesque.

Food is available.
