Enjoy adventures in retail while visiting Las Vegas
You have to agree that Las Vegas is definitely “extra.” Experiences in this city are more than the standard ones found in other cities, and this includes shopping. If you’re planning a retail excursion while in town, expect more than just rows of shops. Expect visual stimulation, themed surroundings, interactive attractions, memorable dining and an overload of fashion and fun.
Love fashion? Love window shopping? Love store upon store upon store? Fashion Show is a truly impressive venue with more than a million square feet of retail space. High-end brands along with popular names fill out a roster of shops anchored by big-box retailers like Macy’s, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. With Halloween right around the corner, bring the family to Fashion Show’s Trick or Chic event every Saturday and Sunday from 4-8 p.m. The all-ages haute haunted house is a complimentary walk-through enchanted multisensory experience sure to get you in a spooky holiday mood.
The Grand Canal Shoppes
A mix of retail, dining and entertainment fill the cobblestoned streets of this indoor ode to the winding streets of Venice, Italy. More than 150 high-end brands combine with eateries that include Buddy V’s Ristorante, Smith & Wollensky and Tao Asian Bistro. Guests can also turn up the fun factor by booking a gondola ride through the canals, test their singing skills at the all-new KAMU Ultra Karaoke or hang with the wax stars at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
The Shoppes at Mandalay Place
While smaller than some of the other shopping destinations on the Strip, The Shoppes at Mandalay Place packs a lot of retail-and-dining punch in its offerings. Both sexes can find upscale and relaxed fashions here, as well as fun shops like Lick candy store and Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics. There’s also The Guinness Store, which houses the largest collection of Guinness merchandise outside of Ireland. Guests can learn all about the famed beer’s brewing process and take home a large assortment of branded souvenirs. Finish up your Guinness adventure by eating at the authentic Irish pub Rí Rá, located right next door. Let’s talk more food at The Shoppes: Enjoy some of the best Mexican food in the valley at Hussong’s Cantina and grab a tasty piece of a pie at Slice of Vegas. It’s worth noting that both restaurants offer impressive vegan menus.
Miracle Mile Shops
Any day is a fun day at Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort, stretching 1.2 miles. Find all your favorite retail brands like Sephora, Fossil, GUESS, H&M, Urban Outfitters, Victoria’s Secret, MAC Cosmetics, Footaction, Lids and U.S. Polo Association. Miracle Mile Shops also houses some of the city’s most enjoyable restaurants like PBR Rock Bar and Cabo Wabo Cantina—both offering spacious Stripside patios and delicious, giant cocktails. For another cool cocktail spot, and the only one in the city run by robots, stop by Tipsy Robot.
The Forum Shops at Caesars
For more than 25 years, The Forum Shops have been a shopping mecca under painted, cloud-filled blue skies and stunning Roman architecture. Some of the world’s most high-end brands have brick-and-mortar shops here, as well as popular, more affordable retailers. Strolling through the shops is a favorite pastime for many visitors and includes tucking in for some food at favorite eateries like True Food Kitchen, The Cheesecake Factory, Sushi Roku, Planet Hollywood and Trevi Italian Restaurant. Don’t miss the free Fall of Atlantis animatronics show and the nearby 50,000-gallon saltwater Atlantis Aquarium.
