November 1-November 3rd, 2017
On Wednesday the 1st of November—the first stay of the Gathering—at 5 p.m. busses will be leaving the Hilton Lake Las Vegas for an evening excursion to “the strip.” We’ve done a little research ahead of time to help you plan your evening and see some of the coolest sights and experience a bit of the energy and buzz that the entertainment capital of the world has to offer.
Once you’ve gotten a bite to eat, you might like to start with visiting some of the stunning Hotels. From the carpets to the decor, every hotel holds true to a unique theme. One minute you’ll find yourself in the chic and tech-y lobby of The Cosmopolitan, and the next you’ll be among the Egyptian ruins of The Luxor. Not to mention the iconic artwork that fills The Wynn or the wild carnival that is Circus Circus.
Then you might want to visit The LINQ Promenade. This dinning, shopping and entertainment district features a 550-foot High Roller observation wheel, which is the largest in the world. The High Roller’s pods have some of the best views in the city.
Then there is Madame Tussauds wax museum at The Venetian. Get your selfie sticks ready because you’re about to take more pictures with A-listers than the paparazzi. Madame Tussauds inside The Venetian brings wax figures to life.
When in Rome, er, Vegas, it’s pretty much obligatory that you go to the Grand Canal Shoppes inside The Venetian. These upscale, indoor shops are close to St. Mark’s Square and are decorated from floor to ceiling to feel like you’re visiting Venice. Complete with a water canal that runs through the center and working gondolas with singing gondoliers who operate them, this atmosphere is on point. While you’re there, check out the Palazzo Waterfall Atrium for seasonal displays on steroids.
As for your foliage needs, let’s make our way over to the Bellagio Conservatory where throughout the year, hundreds of horticulturists arrange thousands of flowers into the most beautiful and large botanical arrangements in the city. Inspired by various happenings around the world including the Chinese New Year, seasonal trends, fashion and aquatic life, the Bellagio Conservatory is totally free and is a sight that you must see to believe.
You won’t want to miss the The Bellagio Fountains. This ultra popular Las Vegas attraction performs a water ballet every 15 minutes from 8 p.m. – midnight.
