Shopping on the Las Vegas Strip: Free Shows and High-End Stores

Las Vegas offers a wealth of shopping. As a bonus, many shopping centers and malls on the Strip are within walking distance of each other, which makes an afternoon (or two) of leisurely shopping that much easier.

Some of the Strip's most frequented spots are its luxurious retail centers, like The Forum Shops at Caesars, home to a host of specialty retailers and upscale restaurateurs. These places are more than shopping malls--they’re more like shopping and entertainment centers.

In addition to a host 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, taking in the free talking statue show and visiting the massive aquarium.

The Grand Canal Shoppes at The Venetian | The Palazzo features a Grand Canal replica, complete with gondolas and singing gondoliers, and the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood features a free multi-million-dollar indoor fountain show. Shop, stop for a meal and enjoy the free shows.

If you’re less interested in entertainment than in finding some new clothes or maybe picking up a few things from Whole Foods, Town Square is the place to go. This appealingly designed shopping center has plenty of amenities and a wide selection of popular brands.
