Best Places to Shop in Vegas
When it comes to shopping, Vegas has got it all. The great places to shop are as numerous as porn flyers on the sidewalk of the Strip. If your significant other isn’t into gambling you might want to keep a close eye on her, because the malls can bleed your bankroll faster than the tables.
Every big hotel has a shopping mall of some type. The Strip can assuage all your shopping desires if you’re willing to pay top price. The Fashion Show Mall gets over 10 million customers per year and includes Saks, Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, and Neiman Marcus, just to name a few. The Grand Canal Shops give the shopper a “Streetmosphere” as patrons walk on sidewalks that have live performers and numerous shops around every corner. The Paris-themed Le Boulevard at Paris Las Vegas is close to the casino and is one fine boutique after another. Numerous restaurants make this one of the best places to have lunch in the entire city.
Off the Strip can be a different story. There are some shops in town that won’t make you go broke in just one day. The Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas are located 40 miles south in Primm, Nevada, and provide a relaxing atmosphere with over 100 shops to choose from. The food court is top-notch and there is a Gamezone Arcade to keep the kids busy while you shop. If you’re downtown, the Las Vegas Premium Outlets has over 435,000 square feet of shopping that offers savings between 25 and 65 percent. Stores range from higher end like Polo Ralph Lauren to mid-priced stores like Levi’s and Eddy Bauer. Canopies are plentiful, but remember to drink water in the desert heat.
A town like Vegas also produces specialty shops that one would have difficulty finding in most cities. Ron Lee’s World of Clowns, the Manilow Store, the Psychic Eye Book Shop, and Serge’s Showgirl Wigs are just a few of the outrageous selection of shops for the offbeat tastes. If you search for it you can find just about anything in this town; just remember to leave enough room in your suitcase for all the stuff you’re taking back home.
