Shopping on the Las Vegas Strip can be SO overwhelming since there are a million places to pick from. Today we chose our favorite spots ranging from budget shopping to high-end luxury shopping to hopefully educate you all and help you better prepare for your next trip!
The Grand Canal Shops @ The Venetian
A shopping metropolis of the greatest magnitude, The Grand Canal Shops @ The Venetian is a Wonder of Las Vegas. With exquisite shopping surrounding multiple canals fitted with gondolas, a lake and painted sky, you will be completely immersed in your shopping experience! With over 150 stores ranging from reasonably-priced to high-end stores as well as seemingly endless restaurants, gelato, bakeries and more you are sure to spend countless hours (and money!) here. If you aren't already sold, know The Venetian is home to the only Barney's NY in Las Vegas and don't forget to checkout Madame Tussauds wax museum located right outside the shopping complex. The Grand Canal Shops are a premier shopping hub in Las Vegas and a must-visit spot for anyone on their first trip in Vegas!
The Forum Shops @ Caesar's Palace
There's no other way to explain The Forum Shops @ Caesar's Palace then to call this complex a Wonder of Las Vegas as well! Located right in the center of The Strip, The Forum Shops are immaculate with it's extensive visuals to include painted vaulted ceilings, fountains and other beautiful architecture. Although the visuals make the The Forum Shops a must-see, add nearly endless stores of all calibers as well as restaurants, gelato, bakeries and more and you a full day of activities here. Our favorites are the two-story H & M and the Dolce & Gabbana artist popup shop here through February! This is an awesome spot for someone looking for a mixture of high end and affordable stores.
The Shops at Crystals @ The Aria
One of the newer additions to The Strip, The Shops at Crystals @ The Aria holds it's own when it comes to visual appeal, but really stands out as a premier, high-end fashion complex. With nearly 50 of the world's most luxurious fashion stores, you'll need to be prepared for quite the shopping spree! The Shops at Crystals house only the best of the best stores so prepare to spend some moola. Although you may not find yourself in their target market, the mall is centrally located on The Strip so you should still stop by to window shop, enjoy the beautiful architecture inside and out or enjoy a coffee at one of the more unique Starbucks locations!
Wynn Esplanade @ The Wynn
While the Wynn Esplanade isn't quite as ginormous as some of the other shopping options in Vegas, it has plenty to see for the average Stripgoer to the shopping fanatic alike! This location, like the Crystal Shops @ The Aria, is nearly wall to wall with high end stores. However, the beautiful decor deserves for you to at least take a stroll through the shops at a minimum and The Wynn has some immaculate flower gardens that we'd consider a great photo op! Lastly, The Wynn Esplanade features the Wynn Collection store which carries A-list designer pieces specially picked out for the perfect head to toe look. There aren't many places like the Wynn Collection where you can enjoy shopping many top designers and their 1 of 1 pieces!
The Fashion Show Mall
Las Vegas' spin on you favorite local mall! Not nearly as decadent when it comes to exhibits and decor as the other shopping hubs in Vegas, but definitely friendlier on the wallet. For what it lacks in luxury, it makes up in shear size! Located towards the end of the strip across from the Wynn Hotel, The Fashion Show Mall is fitted with nearly a couple hundred stores sure to keep you entertained for the day. As well as the endless stores, there's a great food court and plenty of other sit town options to include Benihana, Kona Grill and Maggianos just to name a few. Our favorite food choices however are The Sugar Factory (seriously go get a drink) and Sticks and Shakes (gelato shakes...yes please). All in all, The Fashion Show Mall is another monstrosity of a shopping hub that we're sure you'll absolutely love and tends to be a fan favorite!
