Malls / Outlets, Las Vegas
This mall combines 170 stores and 15 restaurants. These shops definitely stand out on the Las Vegas Strip. We ventured in here and could see some of the old passage stores and some of the news one were dressed up. It kind of confused me at first though. Yet, as you walk around, you can feel your way around.
Formerly called the Desert Passage, the mall's Middle Eastern theme now features a more snazzy, futuristic design. From an outdoor 6,000-square-foot LED sign with continuous streaming images to an outdoor sound system, the Miracle Mile Shops definitely spark up the south end of the Strip.
If you want to take a break from walking, hop on one of the machine-operated people movers, which directly lead up to the mall entrance. This entrance features a multi-sensory laser show, which plays hourly Monday through Thursday from 11:45 a.m. - 11:45 p.m..

This outlet has everything you need. Good shopping with discounted prices. You can find here Polo Ralph Lauren, Banana Republic, Coach, Theory, Lacoste, Kenneth Cole, Adidas, Calvin Klein, Puma, Quicksilver among many other well known brands and labels.
You will find very good prices here, so if you are in Las Vegas and willing to do some good shopping I advise you to come here. There are also many restaurants and food stalls in the Food Court, so you won't go hungry while you shop.
We told the hotel Valet that we wanted to go clothes shopping, and our taxi whisked us to the enormous Fashion Show Mall.
Our first plan was to have breakfast there and then to shop. We expected something like what we'd get here in Ireland - some fast food chains and some cosey homey cafes where we'd get a "proper" breakfast (juice, eggs, bacon, toast etc). We were disappointed. We arrived at 9.30 and were guided to the food court - it's ALL fast food outlets and the majority of them don't open until 10. An odd thing about them was that the staff were snappy and nasty. This is unlike any service I experienced anywhere else in Las Vegas.
The shops don't open until 10, either - so now point in getting there early.
Other than that it was terrific. There were all the big name stores - Maceys, Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus; and many of the famous names - a great Louis Vuitton store for instance. In Maceys I got terrific kids designer clothes at knock down prices - brands such as Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hillfiger, Roca, and DKNY. Most of them were at less than half price. The staff in these shops were more than helpful. Unlike Rodeo Drive, even the staff in Louis Vuitton were down to earth and not a bit snooty.
I really enjoyed some of the shopping stalls and indulged in a nail art set at that stall.
The ABC store had an enormous selection of those delightful little tacky souvenirs that people at home love to get, especially kids and neighbours - pens, notebooks, key fobs, fridge magnets, girly cosmetics such a pretty lip glosses filled with flowers. I boughts lots there and this week they have brought lovely smiles to many teenage faces.
What to buy: You can buy absolutely anything you want in Las Vegas. I really recommend the kids designer clothes, as you won't get those bargains here. There are terrific sales everywhere. At the moment there appeared to be incredible shoe sales. Did I indulge? Yes. So much so, in fact, that I had to buy a second suitcase and got caught for excess luggage on the way home (in spite of the 100lb Delta limit). Oh the shame and the joy of it.
What to pay: A lot less than you would spend in Ireland, especially for the really good stuff.
This shopping mall reminds me of a space ship and it looks a little out of place on the Strip, yet it is the sign of the times that the future there is always change.

Shopping in Las Vegas is absolutely excellent-there are so many places to shop!
As well as visiting most of the Hotels shops on the strip, we also tooks buses to several of the shopping malls in the city. The main shopping malls are: Belz Factory Outlet, Premium Outlets, Meadows Malls, Boulevard Mall and Fashion Show Mall, Yes there are that many. Belz and Premium Outlets are great for discount named brands clothes and sports shops, where as Meadows and Boulevard are less touristy and more traditional american malls great for overall shopping. We also visited The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace which are an experience in themselves! The ceiling is painted like a blue sky with white clouds and although you are indoors , in a surreal way you feel you are out in the open. Truly a strange experience! Some of the shops here are so extravagant you have to have a look inside them just to dream!You HAVE to eat at the Cheesecake Factory if you go shopping there as the food is fab!
Also try the Desert Passage Shops at Aladdin.They have a ceilng painted like a sky too but at regular intervals in one section the sky breaks out into a thunderstorm and it rains..this is inside a building remember! How cool is that?!
Nearly 250 stores are found in FASHION SHOW MALL, including seven flagship department stores like Neiman Marcus, Macy's, Dillard's,Noordstrom, Robinson's May and Saks Fifth Avenue. At this shopping center, you can also dine at fine restaurants or in their food court, plus see actual fashion shows.

This mall is right on the Las Vegas Strip - it is a typical mall, but ......
Despite having the usual sorts of specialty clothing and department stores, I find the clothing in the stores from this mall so very different from the same stores closer to home.
The clothing is trendier, more varied, and just plain more fun! Of course, in some ways it's also more expensive .... but if you look for a sale when you are in town, you can plan to buy an extra suitcase to bring home your new wardrobe :)
What to buy: I was there just after New Year's and there were sales galore ... I brought home SHOES!!! Via Spiga, Weisman, Cole Haan, and more ..... yup, more than I intended to spend while there - but the sales were so good that I got 8 pairs of dressy designer shoes for about $300.00 :) Thank goodness I drove there!

We discovered that Las Vegas has a China Town. It is graced by a lovely crafted traditional Chinese Arch. The centerpiece is of the plaza is graced by a beautiful gold statue of the Journey to the West of Xuan Zang and the Monkey God is from the classical Tong Dynasty-era Chinese literature.
This boulevard is lined with all sorts of businesses. Many are restaurants, markets, and but there are many wonderful shops to choose from. So if your looking for something from the orient, you don't have to go far.
If you could imagine dying and going to shopping heaven, then this is a place for you.
At 2 million square feet, this mall is the goddess of all malls, as it has 6 department stores, and features over 200 stores. I would recommend this mall over the Forum Shops for the average shopper, as you can actually buy some stuff from most of these stores.
This place is a day trip in itself, and is a one-stop shopping destination.
What to buy: This mall has everthing your heart desires
We always make a point of going to outlet malls when we go to the States the prices are at least half the price we would pay here in the UK. We were not disappointed.
Over 100 stores here including Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland, Adidad, Calvin Klein, shops selling gifts, household goods also.
What to buy: I bought some lovely leather, walking kind of shoes. My husband bought 3 (yes 3 isnt he greedy) Tommy Hilfiger sweaters.
What to pay: My shoes were $40 and my husbands sweaters were about $30 each great value.
A new mall located along the Las Vegas Strip.
