MGM Grand Las Vegas Walk Through

After attending the reopening of Tropicana Las Vegas I walked through the MGM Grand Las Vegas. The MGM Grand Hotel and Casino reopened in June. But some of the restaurants and bars are still closed.

The MGM Grand, the former Wizard of Oz themed emerald green hotel has 6,852 rooms, 2,500 slot machines, and 171,500 square feet of gaming. It is the largest casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Despite all my trips to Las Vegas, I’ve never stayed at the MGM Grand. 🙁 It’s not like I try to avoid it as I do with the Strat. Maybe because I was kicked out of that casino.

But that was another time and another story.

Pro-tip: You can use your Mlife benefits such as discounted hotel rates when you stay at the MGM Grand Las Vegas.

In this video, you’ll see which MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel & Casino restaurants and bars are currently open and which are closed for your trip to Las Vegas.

This was a road trip to Vegas, I skipped the cheap roundtrip flights from Spirit and Frontier to Las Vegas, so I could drive and bring lots of camera gear.

On this trip, I brought a Sony a7iii with a Sony 16-35mm lens, the DJI Ronin-S gimbal, a Sony ZV-1, a GoPro Hero8, a DJI Mobile 2 smartphone gimbal, and a DJI OM 4 smartphone gimbal.

Yeah, gimbaled out for sure.

I didn’t like the shaky footage from The Mirage Las Vegas walk through. So brought lots of stabilizers for this trip.

Read my blog post about the DJI OM 4 – a handy and easy to use smartphone gimbal (stabilizer).

And yep, this is the same trip where I stayed in an $8 a night hotel! Stay tuned for that post.

After walking through the MGM Grand, I’m definitely going to plan a stay. The hotel is huge. There are so many restaurants. You don’t even have to leave the hotel.

Now if only it were non-smoking…

What’s your favorite restaurant at the MGM Grand Las Vegas?
