Forum Shops at Caesars

3500 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Las Vegas , NV , United States http://www.simon.com/mall/landing/224/
(702) 893-3807

This giant, 160-shop mall resembles an ancient Roman city, with columns and arches, piazzas and fountains, and faux-outdoor cafés beneath cloud-painted ceiling skies (the lighting even changes with the time of day to mirror the real world). Just as much of a draw as the décor is the cavernous shopping center’s roster of boutiques. It holds all of the usual luxury suspects, and we mean all: Burberry, Christian Dior, Fendi, Versace, Gucci, Harry Winston, Vuitton, Cavalli, Ferragamo, and Valentino.

Tip: Vegas resorts are obsessed with all things aquatic, and Caesars Palace is no different. The Forum Shops has a half-million-gallon tank—located in the same area as the moving statues—that holds 400 exotic swimmers, including puffer fish, clown fish, lionfish, and stingrays. Staffers offer free below-the-scenes tours of the tank’s mechanicals each day at 3:15 p.m.
