My sister keeps visiting. I'm running out of things to show her. Lol. She likes to window shop, but she's from Wyoming, so she can't stand the heat for long. What I was hoping to get suggestions for is upscale or interesting/unique shopping that's indoors and has free parking, which would pretty much eliminate anything on the strip.

Also, any suggestions for anything else I could show her? We've been to Red Rock, Valley of Fire, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Ethel M., Goodsprings, Boulder City (antique shops and that park where the bighorn congregate), Pahranagat Wildlife Refuge, no interest in the horses at Cold Creek, no interest in Mt. Charleston, no interest in Nelson (plus it's hot there too) done the Strip several times, been to Fremont Street, been to the Container Park. I'm out of ideas. Help!

Venetian or Palazzo has free parking and the Grand Canal Shoppes have all the designer boutiques. Then hop across the street to The Forum Shoppes at Caesars for more of the same (or walk). Parking is free for locals. There you go.

The Galleria at Sunset
The District at Green Valley
Town Square
Downtown Summerlin
Tivoli Village for happy hour at any number of places there.
Fashion Show Mall doesn't charge parking and it's the largest Mall with like 600 shops, but there's limited parking.

Am I the only one that spends 7-8 hours in a day shopping at the fashion outlets in Las Vegas? Seriously, if you haven't spent a day doing it you need to. The best time is in January and July for the drop bottom sales that last a week or two. Save your "go crazy money" for these weeks! Then there is Thanksgiving to Christmas that can deliver a special unique shopping experience and they have sales going on then too which is mega great because I get all my Christmas shopping done. $12 soft blankets. Yes, please! The other area malls plan a lot of events during this time too for families and children.

North Premium Outlets
South Premium Outlets
Fashion Outlets in Primm

So parking on the Strip is possible if you want to visit the stores on these properties. You'll have to do some walking though. There are numerous maps and tips about parking on this forum you'll have to zip through. One tip off the top of my head that I am happy to share is park at Hooters. They advertise free parking still. Then go inside and buy some fried pickles and enjoy it with a beer. After that walk across the street to Luxor and catch the free tram on the West Side. You'll have to get on and off and take stairs to the next tram between some stops but there's no fee to ride it and it takes you all the way to Ceaser's and the Bellagio is next to it, so you can potentially see and shop it all down there over a period of days and there's a lot to see.

I went looking for a pair of shoes, Vans specifically, and ended up at their outlet store in (I think) the South Premium Outlet Mall. Used to be the Belz Mall. Anyway, the prices at the Vans store as well as some of the other stores I looked in weren't really what I would call outlet or discount prices. I got what I wanted, but not at a huge discount.

Agree 100% I went to the South Premium Outlet Mall yesterday for the first time looking for new gym shoes. There is nothing discount about the shoe store prices. Left empty handed.

Did not know that. Was there last Tuesday and did not see any sort of work in the parking garage on the Palazzo side.

Try museums: The Mob Museum, and The Atomic Test Museum. They are very interesting.

^^^ agree! Cool places.

A friend of mine husband is an executive there. He said Adelson said he'd never charge for parking. If it came to the point where people were parking there and walking to the Wynn, he'd work it out where locals and those eating and shopping at the Venetian would prove they purchased and get free parking.

Which is what MGM and the rest should do. Caesars sent us a black card for free valet at the shops.
