Fall fairy tale at the Palazzo

palazzo_garden2During  your next shopping trip in Vegas, stop by and see the gorgeous garden at The Shoppes at The Palazzo.

When I first saw this enchanting, brilliantly-colored display, I felt I was in the middle of a fairy tale. Perhaps it’s the swirling, hand-sculpted 80-foot vine with copper leaves and hand-painted pumpkin blossoms. Or maybe it’s the 8-foot shimmering copper leaf hanging from above or the clusters of gigantic pumpkins below.

Located right beside the mall’s indoor waterfall fixture, the garden bursts with autumn delight. In addition to the amazing fixtures and all the pumpkins (some weighing as much as 1,000 pounds), the garden also features trees surrounded by a variety of yellow-orange flowers, mums and cattails.

Come see the autumn display before it’s gone through Nov. 29, 2009. Make sure to take lots of pictures so you can create a fairy tale book of your own.


Most folks take their Vegas jackpot winnings back home, but my dad decided to stay here instead. That’s how I left Seattle almost 20 years ago. I moved from greenery and rainy days to hot summers, palm trees and desert. As much as I love my hometown, I decided to stick around Vegas. This city just has so much to offer. You don’t even have to be a gambler, bar hopper or an all-night partier. I love Vegas for its awesome vegan-friendly spots, concerts, swanky hotel suites and spas so big, they’re like castles. The pool scene is not too shabby either, which is why I love taking stay-cations. Besides living it up -- Vegas style -- I’m hanging out with my adorable baby girl, two cats and super-fluffy Shih-Tzu. I’m also a huge fan of '90s music, shows and movies. You can find me on Google+ and Twitter.
