The Las Vegas Strip's best shopping features luxury brands and free shows



Shopping on the Las Vegas Strip is a major attraction. Many shopping centers and malls on the Strip are within walking distance of each other, which makes it easy to simply stroll to the next mall and keep shopping – and shoppers will find plenty of stores to explore.

Some of the Strip's most well-known shopping is in its high-end malls, like The Forum Shops at Caesars, home to a host of specialty retailers and upscale restaurateurs. In addition to offering a selection of upscale shops, The Forum Shops is simply a fun place to spend the afternoon. You can easily spend hours window shopping and checking out the Roman statues and fanciful decor.

At the Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo, scaled down recreations of St. Mark’s Square and the Grand Canal in Venice are the main attractions, complete with gondolas and singing gondoliers. The selection of shops here includes everything from unique kiosks to name-brand retailers.

If you’re less interested in entertainment than in finding some new clothes or looking for some essentials, Town Square is the place to go. This pleasantly designed open-air, family-friendly shopping center has plenty of amenities and a wide selection of popular brands. You can also stop in to see a movie at its 18-screen theater.
