Q - Are the Casinos on a Strip like Las Vegas?
A -
Tunica currently has 9 Casinos. The casinos are not all along a strip such as Vegas. They are clustered.
In the casino center - Gold Strike, Horseshoe, and Sheraton are all within walking distance.
Hollywood and Harrah's are next door to each other and have a covered walkway most of the way.
Sam's Town is across the street from Hollywood and Harrah's, to some it is walking distance, but to others they prefer to drive or take the shuttle. Just a matter of preference. Here is a pic taken from Sam's East Tower (was Isle of Capri Hotel)
to help you judge walking distance.

Fitzgerald's stands alone. Bally's stands alone, but is close to Casino Center. The Grand stands alone with over 2,000 acres in the resort complex.
If you don't have your car or a rental car, there is a shuttle available for $1. Two shuttle lines run to each casino several times an hour, but not 24 hours a day. Be sure and ask before boarding a shuttle if it is the quickest one to the casino you want to go to. Otherwise you may be on the tail end of a run and ride for longer than you wish. Check our Map
