All those gambling winnings burning a hole in your pocket? You’re in luck—Vegas is more than just casinos, nightclubs, and swimming pools (can’t forget the swimming pools). Vegas also has some pretty awesome shopping, too. On and off the strip, these are some of our favorite shopping hotspots:
Miracle Mile Shops
Located right inside the Planet Hollywood, this shopping mall is super convenient if you’re staying anywhere on the strip. This mall truly has it all, in addition to tons of restaurants and entertainment venues! It may not seem like an enormous shopping complex can fit in there at first glance, but the Planet Hollywood is like the Tardis of the Vegas strip—it’s bigger on the inside. It’s also a great option if you’re tagging along with a gambler and you need something to do to kill the time—just convince them to go to the Planet Hollywood’s casino and you won’t have far to go at all for an awesome shopping experience.
The Forum Shops
If you prefer quality over quantity, head to another popular shopping spot on the Las Vegas Strip—The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace. With high-end shops like Chanel and Gucci, it’s easy to see how it’s the highest-grossing mall in the country. It’s been around since 1992, so it’s also one of the oldest shopping centers in the area, and has won numerous awards throughout the years.
Grand Canal Shoppes
Grab your passport and head over to the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. Okay, so you may not exactly need your passport, but you’ll almost feel like you will—shopping at the Venetian hotel truly feels like being in Venice, Italy. The mall boasts of more than 160 stores, including Tory Burch and Michael Kors. Don’t forget to go for a romantic gondola ride with that special someone! Or, you know, alone as well—totally fine. No judgment.
Las Vegas North Premium Outlets
Want to splurge on some designer goods, but don’t want to pay top dollar? Hop into a rental car and head to the Las Vegas North Premium Outlets. Located just four miles from the Las Vegas Strip, the outlet center offers discounted prices for high-end brands such as Burberry and True Religion.
Fashion Show Mall
Conveniently located across the Wynn, the Fashion Show Mall is another great option if you’re looking for a huge mall to spend the day in (or you just want a place to escape the intense desert heat). If you’ve had enough of all the buffets and just want something a little more familiar, you can also find several dining staples, such as Capital Grille and Maggiano’s Little Italy.
Grand Bazaar Shops
Welcome one of the newest shopping centers to the scene: the Grand Bazaar Shops. The two-acre outdoor shopping mall features some of your favorite retailers and restaurants, and is located at the Bally’s Las Vegas. And in true Vegas style, they also put on a nightly light-and-sound show at 9pm and midnight.
