Vegas doesn't spring to mind when you think of the holidays, but it should. Food as far as the eye can see, entertainment every night of the week — and, you don’t even have to lift a finger. If you’re looking to change up holiday traditions this year, might we suggest a Vegas holiday experience for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve?
Get Out and Explore If you’re worried you won’t get an authentic holiday experience in Las Vegas, think again. The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens gets all decked out for Christmas, complete with giant bells, penguins, and polar bears, and all the poinsettia plants in the Western hemisphere (we exaggerated slightly). You can skate on over at the The Cosmopolitan Ice Rink or visit Santa and the North Pole at the first-of-its-kind 2,000 square foot, two-story interactive house that is opening in partnership with Dreamworks at Fashion Show Mall this year. If you’re keen on a great view of the Strip, check out the High Roller. And if you want to ditch the nightlife and casinos all together, head downtown to the Fremont Street Experience where they pull out all the stops with a holiday stage show and a huge tree.
