1. Caeser’s Palace Forum Shops
-Perhaps the most famous shopping spot in Vegas. Lots of upscale shops and eateries. However, over time they have added some more reasonably priced stores and restaurants, like Gap, Victoria's Secret, Cheesecake Factory and Planet Hollywood. Check out the talking fountains.

2. Miracle Mile- Planet Hollywood
-Neat shopping area that's rather small. Lots of stores you can't find anywhere else in Vegas (Lucky, Aveda, Hilo Hatties). One neat site--it actually "rains" in the mall several times a day (perhaps every hour?). There's a little area outside of Lucky where people can stand and watch the rain. The theme is supposed to be "Miracly Mile" but it still resembles the "Desert Passage" with the Aladdin theme that existed before the recent changeover. Lots of restaurants and bars, many of which offer reduced price happy hours.

3. Fashion Show Mall (strip)
-By far the nicest mall in Vegas and one of the nicest malls I've seen in any city. It's a tri level mall with a layout that can be somewhat confusing. The stores range from the high end (Saks, Neiman) to the standard mall stores (Claire's Boutique, Charlotte Russe, Gap). Lots of restaurants and a food court. Located right on the strip, next to Treasure Island and across from the Wynn.

4. Las Vegas Premium Outlets (downtown LV)
-Lots of major outlet stores are located here, including Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Coach and Polo/Ralph Lauren. There's also a few restaurants and a food court. Close to downtown Las Vegas, about 10 minutes from the strip. The layout is kinda confusing, but it's big enough to take groups or a family for at least half a day.

5. Mandalay Place
-Not a ton of shopping here, but still a neat place to check out. Many of the stores are one of a kind.

6. District at Green Valley Ranch
-Limited stores but a very fun, outdoor environment. Lots of bars/restaurants as well. About 30 minute drive from strip.

7. Town Square (south strip and I215)
-Located just south of the strip. This is perfect for families. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops, etc.
