Shopping Las Vegas
Las Vegas, one of the most exciting cities on the planet is well-known for many things – from entertainment to gambling, to nightlife, dining and weddings and so much more but what some may not know is that Sin City is a world-class shopping destination – from vintage clothing to designer clothing and everything in between. Conventional malls like Fashion Show, to the eye-catching, high-end boutiques inside The Shops at Crystals in the CityCenter Complex, luxury shopping at the Wynn and Encore, The Shoppes at the Palazzo, the Grand Canal Shoppes at Venetian, the Forum Shops at Caesars, and the outlets on The Strip and in Downtown Las Vegas, offer endless options and a diversity of retailers where most likely anything you want can be found.
In the heart of the famed Las Vegas Strip at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino is another popular shopping opportunity, the Miracle Mile Shops. This massive 475,000 sq. ft. enclosed shopping mall forms a massive sphere around the Zappos Theater with 200 shops, live entertainment venues, and 15 restaurants, including our Bachelorette fan favorite, FLIGHTS, the hottest addition to the city’s famous dining scene that serves high-quality comfort food and drinks in trios for a unique and fun experience.
This 300 million-dollar mall provides shoppers with a multitude of different options to shop (or eat) ‘til you drop. Popular brands like H&M, Steve Madden, M-A-C, and Victoria’s Secret highlight this expansive retail space. Miracle Mile is a must-stop for you and your girlfriends, at least once during your Vegas Vacation.
For the epitome of high-end shopping, The Shops at Crystals is an upscale shopping mall located inside the CityCenter Complex and surrounded by the Aria, Vdara, and Waldorf Hotels. It features over 50 of the finest luxury brands in the world – Louis Vuitton, Prada, Versace, Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, and Gucci, and includes fine dining eateries such as Maestros Ocean Club and Wolfgang Puck Cucina by Wolfgang Puck.
While a shopping spree at Crystals might break the bank, it’s still worth taking a tour of this 16.797-million sq. ft. urban environment. Water and crystals are the main themes with a focus on art showcasing some of the world’s most renowned sculpture artists and provides unique photo opportunities that can be shared on your social media platforms.
Another must-see shopping complex is found at none other than one of the original mega-resorts, Caesars Palace. It was founded in 1966 and designed to give guests a sense of what life was like during the Roman Empire. The brand has evolved over the past fifty years and is deeply ingrained as part of Las Vegas’ culture. It has always set the standards for magnificence, opulence, and class.
In 1992, Caesars created an unparalleled shopping experience when they unveiled the Forum Shops. With its subsequent expansion completed in 1997, the Forum Shops is over 600,000 sq. ft. of retail space that includes more than 160 specialty boutiques and luxury stores, 12 restaurants, and three stories. It is now the highest mall in the nation, and in terms of revenue per square foot, it is the most profitable shopping space in the United States. This marvelously crafted design includes many statues and fountains that provide an enormous amount of photo opportunities for you and your besties to post on social media.
A must-see attraction inside the Forum Shops is The Fall of Atlantis show, an animatronic display of fire, water, nine-foot-tall talking statues, a winged dragon, and colorful fountains. This fire-spitting show plays every hour on the hour, starting at 11 a.m. While you are in the area, be sure to check out the 50,000-gallon saltwater aquarium with more than 300 exotic fish.
Overall Caesars Forum Shops is a must-visit for any avid shopper, the stores and amenities it provides ranks as one of the top shopping malls in the city and the elaborate and dazzling architectural backdrops will have you and your girlfriends taking tons of pictures to show off on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat.
For guests who prefer and can afford to shop at boutiques inside the hotels, you won’t want to miss stopping by The Shoppes at the Palazzo and the Grand Canal Shoppes at Venetian. High-end boutiques and delicious dining options border an indoor canal where shoppers can also get a live serenaded gondola ride.
Across the street are the Shops at the Wynn and Encore properties – Encore Esplanade, Wynn Esplanade, and their newest retail offering – Wynn Plaza Shops. This ultra-luxurious shopping destination and exclusive 70,000 square foot, two-story structure is full of extravagant stores featuring Rap Star Drake’s world-famous October’s Very Own (OVO) and Off-White by Virgil Abloh.
If you want to take a break from shopping for a quick workout, The Wynn Plaza is also home to SoulCycle, a popular indoor cycling studio that has instructor-led, high-intensity, energy-filled cycle classes.
If you want designer brands at affordable prices, Las Vegas has three outlet malls: Las Vegas North Premium Outlets, located near Downtown, the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets on The Strip past Mandalay Bay, and the Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas in Primm, a forty-minute drive from the city. These outlets are a shopping mecca with hundreds of stores at each location featuring popular brands, home décor, leather goods, accessories, and a handful of eateries and places for snacks.
