Las Vegas is a city in the United States, the most populous city in the state of Nevada. Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city known primarily for gambling, shopping, fine dining and nightlife and is the leading financial and cultural center for Southern Nevada. If your tastes run to the expensive, you will want to schedule in some serious time at the luxury shops of Crystals and Via Bellagio. If these are a little (or a lot) too pricey for you, check out Fashion Show mall at the north end of the Strip, Miracle Mile Shops and The Forum Shops at Caesars. For charming little shops paired with a Vegas-only experience to match, head off the Strip to the Downtown Container Park. It is home to lots of hip, artsy boutiques, galleries, restaurants, live music and even a play area for kids.
