Las Vegas offers a wonderful shopping experience all within close proximity of the Strip.   

For designer names and luxury items, the Fashion Show Mall is an excellent stop. Across the street from both the Wynn and TI, and walking distance to many other hotels, this mall offers well known retailers such as Macy’s, Dillards, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus and Nordstom, in a beautiful multi-levelled, serene environment. 

Las Vegas boasts a few great outlets malls.  Premium Outlets offers higher-end stores like Coach, Dolce & Gabbana and Lacoste in a beautiful outdoor setting while the Las Vegas Outlet Center offers more varied selection in an enclosed mall.   Additionally, in late 2007, Town Square Mall opened on South Las Vegas Boulevard just a short distance from the Las Vegas Outlet Center, and bus service is now available to all three of these malls (with both Town Square and Las Vegas Outlet Center being on the southbound Deuce route).

Many hotels now boast some exclusive retailer, and many have hundreds of shops hidden inside. The Forum Shops at Caesars alone can take hours to explore.  Here you can find mid-  to high-end shops.  Caesar's Entertainment's Total Rewards program has introduced rewarding points for shoppers instead of just the gamblers. For a more high-end shopping experience, visit Bellagio or the newly built Wynn.  There you can locate stores like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany’s, etc.

The Venetian also presents excellent shopping options at The Grand Canal Shoppes on the second level.  The shops wind its way around the man-made canal, where shoppers can watch the constant stream of gondolas passing by.  It's a bit touristy, even by Vegas standards, but in a more innocent, charming fashion.  There are many high-end shops here as well, not to mention several fine dining options such as Tsunami and Postrio (another Wolfgang Puck establishment), among others.

Another wonderful and diverse shopping experience on the Strip is what was formerly known as Aladdin’s Desert Passage, now called Miracle Mile Shops. It is full of shopping and dining opportunities for every price range and interest.  It has an exotic market bazaar theme with a rainfall show every hour in the middle of the giant shopping loop.  It is a comfortable, indoor environment with air conditioning, plenty of comfy seating nooks, and places to get an afternoon drink or snack. Within the Miracle Mile also nests the V Theater and Saxe Theater with 13 different shows, including "Vegas! The Show" and Stripper 101.  It has the added benefit of being in walking distance to where hotels, such as the Bellagio, Paris, Bally’s (and of course Planet Hollywood) are located.

Many of the malls and outlets offer discount coupons to its visitors.  Be sure to go to the concierge desks at any of the above to ask for a shopping passport.   For international visitors you can get discount cards for shops like Macys but you will need to bring ID with you like a passport.
