When you think of shopping in the US, you wouldn't necessarily think of Las Veags straight away but you should because it really is a shopper's paradise. Whether you are looking for bargain basement offers or high end designer wear, you'll find a mall to entice you in Sin City.
-The Forum Shops-
This mall is the original one in Las Vegas and is located in the Caesar's Palace hotel. Apparently it is the most successful mall in the whole of America and i think that is probably because it is a tourist attraction as well as a shopping mall. Even if you aren't into shopping, it is a great place to wander round and admire the amazing attention to detail. It is a much more accessible mall than many because it isn't lined with mega expensive designer stores, but rather with a collection of designers and high street favourites such as Abercrombie and Fitch. It is generally always quite busy although, like everything in Las Vegas, it is big enough to accommodate the crowds.
-The Grand Canal Shoppes-
This mall is based at The Venetian hotel and is modelled around the Italian city. it is a very pleasant place to wander round and soak up the quite accurate Italian atmosphere. There is a grand square designed to be like St Mark's Square and it is lined with restaurants and coffee shops so is a great place to rest a while. The shops here aren't as many or as varied as in The Forum, but there is a nice collection none the less.
-Las Vegas Outlet Centre-
This is a huge outlet centre located around three miles south of Mandalay Bay at the end of The Strip. It has over 150 shops and a huge car park so is very easily accessible. The prices are supposed to be lower than usual, but you have to look fairly hard to find the real bargains. It is full of high street favourties like Levi's and Reebok.
-The Fashion Show Mall-
Located at the Northern end of The Strip just opposite the new Wynn Las Vegas hotel, this was the first shopping mall built independently of a hotel. You can spot it a mile off because it has a huge disc thing outside that is perhaps supposed to look like the rim of a fashion hat, but it doesn't! The difference between this mall and all the others is that it has the big department stores as well. So if you are a fan of Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Sak's Fifth Avenue, then this is the mall for you.
So, take a break from the gambling and the over indulging on food and get some exercise whilst pounding the streets of the many shopping malls in Las Vegas.
