Contrary to what you might believe, a winter wonderland can flourish in the desert.
With its many extravagant seasonal makeovers, the Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens draw more than 5 million visitors per year, making it Vegas’s most popular attraction.
On Dec. 9, the conservatory will debut this year’s winter look, which will run through Jan. 2, 2011. The centerpiece of the exhibit will be an impressive 42-foot Shasta Fir, dazzled with more than 7,000 lights and 1,800 holiday decorations.
Expect the display to invoke many traditional holiday memories: 15-foot-tall toy soldiers, a 7-foot-tall rocking horse alongside a lovely red sleigh with a snowy sky backdrop – a perfect blend of nostalgia and timeless holiday icons for the whole family to enjoy. Adorable animated penguins and a family of polar bears, made of carnation arrangements, top off this fun winter attraction.
The exhibit will be open seven days a week, 24 hours a day, so be sure to check it out if you’re visiting Las Vegas for the holidays.
