7 Best Shopping Places in Las Vegas ...

To say that you can indulge yourself in the best shopping places in Las Vegas is an understatement. Las Vegas can be a wonderful escape from the real world. From vintage clothing and antiques to high end luxury shops, I have scoured one of the most well-known international destinations for the best shopping places in Las Vegas. These shops are not only limited to the tourist hot spots. Local boutiques and off-the-strip shopping are some of the hidden gems of Las Vegas. One of the reasons I fell in love with this city is the endless possibilities for excitement, convenience, and of course, the shopping!

1 The Forum Shops

The Forum Shops Located in the legendary Caesar's Palace, The Forum Shops has a reputation for having a distinctive environment with its simulation of the streets of Rome. This location has a dazzling likeness to the columns and statues that decorate the real Roma, but with a wonderful selection of restaurants and shops. Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Agent Provocateur, Tory Burch, and Anthropologie are just some examples of one of the best shopping places in Las Vegas. The Forum Shops also boasts having one of the biggest H&M stores in the country, and carries exclusive designer collections that other H&M stores will not have available. Swoon!

2 The Grand Canal Shoppes

The Grand Canal Shoppes The Grand Canal Shoppes captures the spirit and essence of Italy while maintaining a bevy of exquisite shopping and restaurants. One of the unique qualities of this shopping center is the indoor gondola rides that float through the shops for a truly exceptional experience. Have a gelato and imagine you are roaming the streets of Venice searching for that perfect little party dress! Wander through St. Mark's Square and you'll find yourself at the The Palazzo. A three story waterfall will transform the streets of Venice into a Las Vegas palace. Barneys of New York anchors an impressive line up of exclusive boutiques and stores such as Steve Madden, 7 for All Mankind, Sephora, Chloe, and Burberry.

3 Crystals

Crystals You can’t miss this location on the Las Vegas strip with its modern crystalline-like architectural design that instantly beckons you through the doors. The impressive Crystals shopping center is home to many of the elite luxury brands in the world, with many of these boutiques being the flagship location. Get ready to spend some serious cash on brands like Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent, Tom Ford, and Balenciaga. If you don't want to break the bank, then take in the dazzling details of the flower beds, incredible strip views, and grab a coffee at Wolfgang Puck's coffee house.

4 Town Square

Town Square Located a few minutes away from the strip, Town Square Shopping Center is a stunning outdoor retail therapy getaway. Town Square offers a wide selection of popular stores, and is home to a movie theater, outdoor water playground, bars, and restaurants for a fun and accessible experience for the whole family! Las Vegas can be super hot and dry, so I tend to come to Town Square in the evenings or during the beautiful fall and winter seasons. Purchase tickets and toast to the good life with the popular annual wine tastings during the September and October months. There is always an appealing event that will attract locals and tourists who want a different point of view of the city.

5 Charleston Antique Mall

Charleston Antique Mall For the ultimate old school Las Vegas experience, swing by the Charleston Antique Mall. There's an incredible selection of antiques, vintage clothing, costume jewelry, furniture, artwork, and casino memorabilia. A breath of fresh air for the vintage collector, you won't be disappointed by the hundreds of vendors aiming for a good old fashioned treasure hunt. Visiting the Charleston Antique Mall is an adventure in itself to find a unique gift or something truly special for yourself. Clear your day before you step inside this unique retro mega mall to pop some tags.

6 Tivoli Village

Tivoli Village For a quick getaway away from all the hype, Tivoli Village is worth the drive. Located in beautiful Summerlin, Nevada, this quiet outdoor escape is inviting and entertaining. Tivoli Village is inspired by European architecture and design with a dramatic flair for details and shop layout. The heart of Tivoli is The Market, a collection of local buy it now fashion! Channel your inner girly girl at the Charming Charlie accessory store or find a selection of affordable trendy styles at Your Best Kept Secret boutique. I adore Poppy Den, a neighborhood Asian gastropub with a beautiful patio and happy hour menu. Tivoli Village is always featuring something unique and different making it one of my new favorite spots to eat, drink, and shop.

7 Fashion Show Mall

Fashion Show Mall I have saved the best for last! Fashion Show Mall is far from your ordinary local mall. Live fashion shows are scheduled on weekends every hour featuring super sweet models in the hottest trends. If that doesn't slow you down, check out some of the ultimate flagship stores like Topshop, Zara, and Scotch & Soda. All of the designer department stores are in one location for a Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom sensory overload. Whatever shopping mood I am in for, Fashion Show Mall is my playground for finding new brands, browsing awesome sales, and scoring some unique pieces.
