Shopping & Souvenirs in Las Vegas

Shopping in Las Vegas

For the best shopping experience, your best bet is to start out at the Forum Shoppes at Caesar’s Palace. It is a huge shopping mall covering three floors at one end of the hotel. They have every kind of shop you can think of plus a few more. You can go from Houdini’s, a magic shop, to Gucci for clothes. They have a Planet Hollywood inside and several other chain restaurants. There are also some living statues that come to life every hour to tell about a Roman myth. They have seats so if you are tired from shopping, you can rest a while.

Next up is the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. Head to the second floor and take in all the amazing scenery. The second floor is made to look like outside in Venice complete with gondola rides. High and medium-end brand names are found here as well some expensive trinket shops. There is everything from Banana Republic to Ann Taylor.

Fashion Show Mall which is almost right across the street from the new Wynn Las Vegas Hotel is a much more fitting Vegas type of mall. It holds 250 shops, restaurants, and service stores. They have valet parking and will even offer to hand wash your car while you are having fun shopping. Some of the stores in this mall include Sak’s, Nordstrom’s, Macy’s, and other high-end retailers. You can’t miss the place either, it has a huge circular object on top of it that looks very much like an UFO.

Boulevard Mall was the largest around until Fashion Show Mall came along. With its 144+ stores, it took up 1.2 million square feet. It has several anchor stores likes Sears and JC Penney as well as Dillard’s and Marshall’s. You can find almost anything you are looking for at reasonable prices. It it a medium-end mall and has several eateries you can eat and take a few minutes to rest.

Souvenirs in Las Vegas

Finding a souvenir shop in Las Vegas is like finding a place to eat. There are several places on every block. Some are little holes in the wall and some are quite huge. They sell a lot of the same items, and the best advice is this, don’t buy the souvenirs at the airport. They are way more expensive, unless you have forgotten something.

The all around best place to go and find souvenirs is the Bonanza Gift and Souvenir Shop. It occupies the corner across from the Sahara Hotel. They have everything you could possibly want in this store. They have old chips, dice, cards, hats, pens, pencils, calendars, t-shirts, baby clothes, wooden trinket boxes, tote bags, shot glasses, those famous dice clocks, old money, disposable cameras, and batteries. You can spend hundreds in a matter of minutes, so watch yourself.

The Arts Factory Complex is right off of Las Vegas Boulevard. They have a gift shop carrying pink flamingos and Las Vegas related items. The tackiest item seen was a pair of earrings with poker chips.

Also, check the hotels for gift shops for your favorite performers. The Las Vegas Hilton has Barry Manilow. Also, at the Las Vegas Hilton, you can find a gift shop for that Trekker in your life at Star Trek: The Experience. Caesar’s Palace has Celine Dion and an Elton John Store. On the side of Harrah’s, you can find Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville shop. The Stratosphere Tower has a gift shop way up at the very top of the tower with plenty of souvenirs and mementos. Circus Circus has several gift shops as you walk through the casino. They have everything from snacks to beautiful pictures of the strip at night for framing. You can even find decorated golf balls.
