Retail Therapy in Las Vegas
Redefine shopping on your next trip to Las Vegas. With shops and activities galore, shopping in Las Vegas shouldn’t be restricted to the confines of a simple storefront. At MGM Resorts, we believe shopping here should include shopping for amazing experience and lasting memories.
When in Vegas, you’re probably in town to spend some money and “shop” in one way or another – especially if you’ve won some extra dough in the casinos. Whether you came to Las Vegas to gamble, shop, or see some fabulous shows, there are plenty of ways to spend time and money in Sin City. Though it’s highly supported to spend that hard-earned jackpot money on a new designer bag, try one-upping your Vegas shopping spree with show tickets or an exotic car experience.
Be a High Roller at the Shops on the Strip
The shops in Las Vegas demand attention. The Strip is filled with amazing stores for spending your winnings. If the traditional sense of shopping and purchasing goods is on your list, be sure to pack light. There is no shortage of high-end shops to keep your credit card going.
Balenciaga. Dior. Gucci. Versace. It’s no secret Las Vegas and luxury go hand-in-hand. Featuring over 50 luxury retailers and located by the ARIA Resort & Casino, The Shops at Crystals is a prime shopping destination for those looking to add a pricey yet priceless piece to their collection. This gorgeous mall is beautifully designed both inside and out, and hosts a number of gourmet restaurants to satisfy those mid-shopping hungers. Additionally, it is LEED+ Gold Core & Shell certified, meaning you can go green while spending green.
Another big contender for luxury shopping in Las Vegas is The Shops at Bellagio. If you’ve already spent all your winnings elsewhere, this shopping destination is a must-visit. With natural lighting and a spacious walkway, even window shopping in the Bellagio shops is a treat. If you are still on the market for goods, be sure to check out the 2,400-square-foot Bregeut watch store – one of five in the country. Other featured shops include Louis Vuitton, Fendi, and Giorgio Armani, to name a few. Be sure to follow up your shopping trip with a visit to the beautiful Fountains of Bellagio or the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens!
Speed Through Winnings with a Luxury Car Rental
A mix between physical shopping and experience shopping, luxury car rentals are the way to go if you want to feel the rush of Vegas. Exotic cars are both and experience and an art, and come with some serious bragging rights. How many people can say they’ve been in a Lamborghini Aventador, let alone race in one? If the gambling didn’t get your heart pumping, these cars will.
Take a lap or 10 in a wide range of exotic cars from Dream Racing. Get the feel of being on the track while strapped into the passenger seat as a pro driver shows you the ropes. If you’re feeling extra feisty, race through your winnings and drive on your own, adding on more laps for more excitement. One car not enough? No worries, get the Dream Racing package deal, and test out a fleet of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, and more.
Holdout on Materials, Buy In on Experiences
Musicals, shows, and dolphins, oh my! What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas – and a LOT is happening. Las Vegas is filled with award-winning shows and breathtaking experiences. Why not shop around for some tickets? Some do not want to bring back memories from their Vegas vacation, but we promise these are memories you’ll want to remember for a lifetime.
Life is all about balance, especially if you’re part of the Cirque du Soleil crew. While different shows travel around the country, Las Vegas is lucky to be home to quite a few of these entrancing shows. Shop around, and see which piques your interest most. Traveling with family? Dive into the original Vegas water show ‘O’ at the Bellagio. Traveling with your partner? Take a peek at the entrancing show Zumanity at New York-New York. A fan of the Beatles? They say money can’t buy me love, but it can buy tickets to The Beatles LOVE at The Mirage.
Want a more hands-on experience? Suit up and step in to the Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat. This is one of those experiences that won’t end in buyer’s remorse. Swimming isn’t the only experience available, though – you can even create a painting with the dolphins. After hanging out with white tigers, white lions and leopards, this will be one of the most majestic purchases you’ve made in Vegas.
Looking to sit back and have the show come to you? Schedule a trip off the strip with a tour of the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, or see it all with a Maverick helicopter tour that will show you everything worth seeing from above. They’ll pick you up, record the whole event, and even give you (and up to 20 of your closest friends) a private tour of the area.
At the end of the day, the way you do shopping in Vegas comes down to what your style is. Don’t be afraid to split up your winnings between products and experiences. Whatever your Las Vegas shopping preferences are, you deserve to treat yourself and create the best Vegas memories for you. So go out, win some money, and treat yourself. Happy shopping!
