The name of the game here is outrageous. Las Vegas has a whole lot of shopping malls. That’s how this town was set up from the get-go. Most of them are very mundane with your Kohl’s, WalMarts, etc. But a few of them are head and shoulders above the rest. Las Vegas Visitor has a list of them here In fact, Las Vegas actually has the highest grossing mall in the nation. Read on and find out which one it is.


Bellagio

3600 S. Las Vegas Bl., Tel: 702-693-7111

Here is a list of the shops: Bellagio At Home, Chic Affairs, Via Bellagio, Bellagio Lobby, Via Fiore Pool Promenade, Cirque Du Soleil Store, Richard Macdonald, Jean-Philippe Online.


Forum Shops

in Caesars Palace, 3500 S. Las Vegas Bl., Mall Office: (702) 893-3807 Shopping Line: (702) 893-4800 Mall Security: (702) 893-4800

100 upscale shops (most of them anyway). Some very nice restaurants. Free entertainment too.

Mall Hours: Friday to Saturday 10am – 12am Sunday to Thursday 10am – 11pm.

The big names are all here. And the mall is center strip, adjoining Caesars Palace.It is not just shopping, but also fine dining and entertainment.

THIS IS ALLEGEDLY THE HIGHEST GROSSING (PER SQ. FT.), MALL IN THE U.S. I belief it, I have been there quite a few times.


Grand Canal Shoppes

in the Venetian hotel 3355 S. Las Vegas Bl., Tel: 702-414-4100

Specialty shops and restaurants along a replica of the Grand Canal in Venice (Italy), also the Plaza San Marco. An eclectic mix of business and entertainment.

This one has so many shops and dining venues it will take this whole page to post them all. Just go there and see for yourself, it is well worth it. From the Venetian you can walk to the Palazzo and the Sands Convention Center without ever setting a foot outside.

Both of these hotels have something that is unusual in Las Vegas – poor parking. Especially during convention time. I solve that problem by parking at Treasure Island (free parking), and walking across the street.
