The holidays in Las Vegas are filled with decorations and celebrations on a huge scale. This is a city that loves bright, twinkly lights and parties all year round, and the fall and winter holidays are no exception.
In late October, things start getting festive in Las Vegas and the celebratory mood stays until the Chinese New Year. The holiday season in Vegas is filled with parties, festivals, fireworks and decorations--lots of decorations. Plenty of local attractions off the Strip are also fun for families, and during Christmas Santa is usually easy to find.
The Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens changes with each season, and its Christmas and Chinese New Year displays are crowd pleasers, not to mention terrific photo opportunities. The elaborate floral designs will bring out the photographer in anyone.
New Year's Eve is always a great time in Las Vegas, with two major celebrations going on: America's Party on the Vegas Strip and Downtown Countdown on Fremont Street Experience. Crowds in both places brave the cold to be a part of these gigantic block parties. Downtown party-goers pay a cover and have several bands to check out, plus they enjoy an amazing light show on the overhead canopy. On the Strip, part of the entertainment is the crowd itself, which swells into streets at midnight to see the famous roof-top fireworks light up the sky for miles.
