“Lined with upscale casino hotels, the neon-soaked Strip is quintessential Las Vegas. As well as gambling floors, the vast hotel complexes house a variety of shops, restaurants (ranging from mainstream to high-end), and performance venues for music, comedy and circus-style acts. Attractions like the soaring, choreographed Fountains of Bellagio and the High Roller observation wheel draw crowds.”

Outlet Mall
“This place is a must visit for shopping therapy enthusiasts. 🛍 One, has a big variety of stores to choose from, such as, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, Kate Spade New York, Lululemon, and more. Their products always change to reflect the season a costumer will visit the shopping outlet, winter, summer, etc. And the best part? The majority of those shops have up to 70% off of their products all year around. And at the same time, options to drink and/or eat, are available as well, such as Chipotle, The Cheesecake Factory and more. Tip: If you have a local friend, better you invite them along. Non residents of Nevada are required to pay a parking fee (around $7), when on the other side Las Vegas residents just have to scan their ID and parking ticket without having to pay anything.”
