Easy come, easy go. Spend your winnings here!
In Vegas, it is entirely possible to shop ‘til you drop. Really.

Grab a pretzel or sit down to lunch, then shop, shop, shop.
Fashion Show Mall
Our top pick, Fashion Show Mall, is home several major department store anchors like Macy’s, Nordstrom, Saks and Dillards. There are also the smaller stores you have come to know and love for clothing, plus specialty stores for furniture, shoes, cosmetics, accessories … you name it, this is the mall for it.

The most kid-friendly option of the bunch, the Forum Shops located inside Caesars Palace combines entertainment with shopping, thanks to the Roman streets the mall is modeled after and fountains. Its got 160 stores that are more high-end than Fashion Show and Miracle Mile (hello, David Yurman, Apple and Gucci), but not high-end enough to spend your life’s savings. The dining options (Cheesecake Factory, Border Grill, Joe’s Seafood, The Palm Steakhouse) are pretty awesome too!

Run) or the perfect fedora at Goorin Bros. to naughty night time apparel at Ruby Blue and more. Be sure to bop into the local Vegas retailer, Pier 30 for some tragically cool clothing. Food and drink experiences include the gorgeous BLVD Cocktail Company, a posh piano bar with some mean cocktails, as well the beer-friendly Yard House, and sweet treats at Sprinkles and Ghirardelli.

Vegas Premium Outlets
For your convenience, there are two Premium Outlets in Vegas — one north of the Strip, and one just south of the resort corridor. The North outlet is outside, while the South outlet blasts you with air-conditioning. A recent expansion gives the North the edge on selection, but both offer heaps of savings courtesy of shops like Banana Republic, GAP, DKNY, True Religion and more. Head early to beat the buses that drop of other discount shoppers like yourselves.
Downtown Container Park
This funky shopping area downtown is built from shipping containers and echoes the funky and hip area where it lives. It’s a hot spot for boutique arts such as Art Box, which sells local artists’ work, and Lead Art Creations, a store focused on rebirths of old stained glass work. But, it’s also got plenty of boutique clothing stores, and even a toy store, Kappa Toys, for kids of all ages (including grown up kids). Sip wine and nosh on artisanal cheese selections at Bin 702 or try the vegan food over at Simply Pure. Be sure to check out the entertainment schedule.

The Grand Bazaar is an outdoor shopping mall in front of Bally’s that offers plenty of ways to drop that hard-won money from the casinos. We’re talking mid- to upscale shops (shrunk down to represent an open-air market, so think kiosks and little stores) that range from Superdry to Swarovski … and everything in between. It has under 10 clothing stores, but is heavy on the accessory shops like Gulten Dye Make Your Own Jewelry and specialty stores that include Las Vegas Magic Shop and Jagua Body Art. It also serves up plenty of places to indulge your tastebuds, including the popular Del’s Lemonade and Lobster Rolls, and Sugar Factory.
