Who doesn’t love a little retail therapy? With Las Vegas shopping options galore you can get yours right in your own neighborhood, or take a short ride on the freeway to check out some others. Either way, you don’t need to be a tourist visiting the Strip in order to enjoy fabulous Las Vegas shopping.
The Galleria Mall
Residents of Henderson/Green Valley have had The Galleria Mall since 1996. One of the largest malls in the state, the Galleria has Dillard’s, Macy’s, JC Penney and Kohl’s anchoring the smaller shops and eateries located over the enclosed mall’s two levels. Valet parking and free Wi-Fi provide even more convenience for shoppers here. A full-scale renovation will be completed in 2013.
The District at Green Valley Ranch
For a somewhat a different vibe in the same area head west on the 215 for about five miles to the outdoor mall at The District at Green Valley Ranch. This urban living environment features a collection of upscale shops and dining located adjacent to the luxurious Green Valley Ranch Hotel Casino. Las Vegas shopping at The District consists of two separate areas across the street from one another. A free trolley service ferries guests between the two venues. On summer evenings free outdoor movies and live music make added attractions for promenading through the shops.
Monte Lago Village
Traveling south of Henderson, residents of Lake Las Vegas and neighboring communities in the area can enjoy the quaint European style Monte Lago Village, located along the Lake. Stroll through the picturesque winding cobblestone streets filled with boutique shops, restaurants and pubs. Events here include jazz concerts and movies on the lake in summer, ice skating in winter.
The Meadows Mall and Tivoli Village
In the Summerlin/Southwest area, The Meadows Mall offers Las Vegas shopping throughout two stories of enclosed retail and dining options, anchored by JC Penney, Dillard’s, Macy’s and Sears. This mall has been around since 1978 and also services the North and Northwest parts of the Valley. For an upscale outdoor mall experience similar to The District, Summerlin residents and visitors can check out Tivoli Village, an intimate Mediterranean style collection of shops and dining.
The Shops at Summerlin Centre
Also in Summerlin, The Shops at Summerlin Centre are scheduled to open in Fall 2014. Located near the beautiful Red Rock Hotel Casino Resort, the completed project will feature over 125 stores and restaurants, open-air walkways and outdoor dining.
Las Vegas Premium Outlets
For those who have outlet shopping in mind, Las Vegas residents enjoy two outlet malls: Las Vegas Premium Outlets North, located near downtown Las Vegas and Las Vegas Premium Outlets South, closer to McCarran Airport and south of the Strip. The North Outlets offer an outdoor mall of all the most popular brands and designers, plus dining options. The South shops are an enclosed collection of retail outlets and food courts. Residents consistently enjoy taking advantage of the Las Vegas shopping opportunities here as well.
Also just south of the Strip, residents mingle with tourists who have also discovered Town Square. Since opening in 2007 this upscale California-style outdoor mall has attracted patrons from all across the Valley, as well as visitors looking for fine dining, shopping, entertainment and nightlife. Valet parking adds convenience for those wishing to take advantage of all Town Square has to offer.
Whether you like your shopping in traditional enclosed malls or with a chic atmosphere in an outdoor setting, you can bet that you’ll find what you’re looking for no matter which Las Vegas neighborhood you call home.
