Las Vegas Shopping
Where you shop in Las Vegas will depend more on how much you want
to spend - and how far you want to drive - than on what you're looking
for. The Strip offers a shopping extravaganza. You'll find rows
and rows of stores that sell Las Vegas souvenirs and sundries. At most
of the Strip hotels you can buy expensive dresses, swimsuits, jewelry,
and men swear; almost all the hotels have shops offering logo merchandise
for the hotel or its latest show. A few hotels offer more than just the
usual stores, but several properties take their themes to extremes: you
can stroll along a Venice canal at the Venetian, traverse North African
trade routes at the Aladdin, and enter a kingdom of upscale shops and
talking statues at Caesars Palace.
Inside the casinos the gifts are elegant and expensive; outside,
it's Tacky City. The endless gift shops alo/. m
onLas Vegas Boulevard all sell the same dice clocks, jack and queen
playing-card earrings, decks of used casino cards, Vegas belt buckles,
key chains, and bath towels. Some stores look so schlocky you'll be embarrassed
to step inside. Shoppers looking for more practical items or for an excuse
to drive around the greater metro area can head for neighborhood malls,
supermarkets, shopping centers, and specialty stores. And those
not averse to doing a bit of driving might find some of the same high-ticket
items at lower prices at one of the town's factory outlet malls.
