Vegas goes over the top on just about everything, and this includes the holidays. Oversized ornaments, spectacular displays and light shows, and events for everyone - Vegas is a must-see destination for holiday decor inspiration.
Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
The winter wonderland on display at the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is a favorite of guests around the globe and is a must-see in Vegas during the holiday season. The holiday tree, decorated with 7,000 LED lights and 2,500 ornaments, stands at the center of the display. Below it, a locomotive moves past four chocolate houses and through two chocolate stations, created by the Bellagio pastry team. Nearby, polar bears lounge and play on icebergs floating on a winter pond and across the Conservatory, penguins frolic in igloos. Be sure not to miss the Fountains of Bellagio featuring special performances of classic holiday tunes such as Santa Baby through the season.
Mystic Falls Winter Wonderland at Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall
In east Las Vegas at the Sam's Town Hotel & Gambling Hall, the lights shine every year on this Mystic Falls Winter Wonderland. In operation since 1994, this indoor attraction is decorated with holiday decor and the existing animatronics are programmed with a special holiday light show. This 15-minute long laser light spectacular is complete with "snow" that plays hourly and features appearances by "Cowboy Santa".
Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Botanical Cactus Gardens
Located in Henderson, NV, the Ethel M Chocolate Factory showcases one of the most beautiful holiday display attractions around. This 3-acre cactus garden is adorned with bright lights in every color, and this year visitors can view it in 3-D. Guests can also get a factory tour and sample the chocolate. Quite a decadent holiday evening.
Happy Holidays from all of us at Dunn-Edwards!
