This family-friendly, outdoors experience is a world of its own, fully dedicated to the Christmas season. Come for a socially-distanced stroll around by the Wanderland's festive paths, illuminated by christmas trees and photo-worthy vignettes. You'll find great dining at the Winter Beast restaurant, and irresistable shopping from pop-up retailers Kappa Toys and Wild Muse Boutique.

Bellagio Conservatory

At the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, the psychedelic arrangements of freakishly tall and colorful plant sculputers are sure to impress. You'll feel like sweet little Christmas elves, looking up, down and around at the fantastical scene. Wonder at the sky-lit atrium and share a kiss under a glittering misteltoe. Plus, the whole thing is covered in artificial snow.

ARIA's Winter Wonderland

The best part about this 15-foot holiday display? It's all edible. A professional team of pastry chefs spent more than four weeks crafting the "Sugar Palace." About 4,000 pounds of sugar were used to create pressed sugar bricks. The snowflakes are coated in crystal sugar, while the blown-sugar swans will steal your heart - and it makes for a great holiday IG post.
