The Flamingo opened in 1946, making it the oldest casino hotel on the Strip still in existence. It is located directly across the street from Caesars Palace, but also smack in the middle of a whole cluster of other Caesars Entertainment owned properties. These include the LINQ and Harrah's to the North and Bally's Paris, and Planet Hollywood hotel to the South. Naturally, Caesars management hopes you will agree that these six facilities combined (along with the off-Strip Rio hotel accessible via free shuttle) provide all the gambling and non-gambling activities you could possibly want. But don't forget--the Bellagio and Mirage are within walking distance of the Flamingo, too!
