Formula 1 Grand Prix
The biggest racing event in the world
will be coming to Las Vegas
in 2023 after more than 40 years, specifically the Formula 1 Heineken Silver Grand Prix. The racetrack is currently still being built on The Strip itself in preparation for the event which will take place from November 16-18
this year, making it comparable to destinations like Monaco for being the most spectacular race location on earth. Each of the races on the 4-mile track
will take place at night, surrounded by the most famous hotels and casinos in Las Vegas
. Already, the city anticipates up to 200,000 visitors
on the race weekend with general admission tickets starting at $500, although visitors will also need to factor in hotel costs. Resorts such as The Bellagio
are already offering luxury packages
for the entire three-day weekend beginning at around $11,000. For those without tickets, fan zones have been set up for the public to watch races on the big screen.
The Fontainebleau has been sitting on the Las Vegas Strip
close to the famous Stratosphere
since 2009, a sister hotel to the popular Fontainebleau Miami Beach
. However, after over a decade of being half-finished, the hotel will finally open its doors to the public as one of the largest hotels in the city. With 3,700 hotel rooms
, swimming pools, large casino, shopping centre and numerous as-yet-unannounced dining options, it will also be one of the tallest hotels in Vegas. The 25-acre resort plans to open at the end of 2023
after 16 years of on-and-off construction. The original Fontainebleau in Miami was acquired in 2005 and the 1950’s structure is one of the most loved luxury hotels situated in the centre of Millionaire’s Row, containing notable restaurants such as Hakkasan and Scarpetta. There are also two nightlife venues, two-story spa, pool and private beach. The Las Vegas property hopes to match this on a bigger scale by the end of the year.
