Finding family-friendly activities in Las Vegas is easy if you know where to look. Luckily, Las Vegas shopping adventures for teens and tweens abound, both on and off the Strip.
On your next family outing, explore these five retail destinations for shopping, dining, and a dose of Las Vegas glamour.
Fashion Show Mall
The Fashion Show Mall is a must-visit shopping destination when you explore the city with your teen and tween kids. While you stroll down the Strip, the building is easy to spot—its futuristic, spaceship-like design can’t be missed, even among the bright lights and chaos of Las Vegas Boulevard.
Your shopping excursion begins at Dick’s Sporting Goods, a two-story emporium dedicated to all things active. Does your family want to hit the links or play some tennis while on vacation? You can find all the gear you’ll need here. You continue your mall journey to other teen favorites, like Hollister and GameStop, before refueling at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf.
Las Vegas North Premium Outlets
Just north of the Strip, Las Vegas North Premium Outlets is the place to go for designer brands at reasonable prices, from Adidas to Zumiez. This selection is not like the outlets you have at home, because here, you browse your stores while palm trees greet your every move.
Since you plan on spending hours here, you lather up on sunscreen so you can stroll through this village-like outdoor mall in comfort. Stop by Skechers and Lids with the kids before looking for something for yourself. It’s a great way to enjoy the desert heat while being lazy with the entire family.
Forum Shops at Caesars Palace
Las Vegas shopping means you never have to venture far from your hotel room. Thus, it leaves you time to grab a new swimsuit for your kids and head to the pool for the afternoon. Back on the Strip, the Forum Shops transports you straight to Italy, thanks to dramatic sculptures, Roman-style architecture, and a replica Trevi Fountain. During your family outing, you chase your kids on the spiral escalator, under the lush golden walls and painted sky. You explore the dazzling array of luxury stores as you walk around—before heading to Border Grill for tasty tacos and a shareable plate of skillet steak nachos.
Downtown Container Park
Made of shipping containers and modular buildings, Downtown Container Park is a family shopping destination in the heart of Las Vegas. You begin by saying hello to the giant fire-spewing praying mantis sculpture that welcomes your family.
Next, you head to Cheffini’s for a kid-friendly, casual meal of hot dogs on the patio. Since your teenager declared herself a vegan days before your trip, you already know this menu offers options for her, too! During your after-dinner stroll through the outdoor shopping center, you end up at Kappa Toys, where you find a fascinating assortment of trinkets and games, including colorful nostalgic items. This place has a little bit of everything.
Downtown Summerlin, as a relative newcomer to the Las Vegas shopping scene, offers a great place for you to go to explore the suburban, family-friendly side of Sin City. You begin by admiring the water features and towering palm trees in the outdoor mall’s dining arroyo. The kids start to get antsy, so you visit the IT’SUGAR candy store for sweet treats and fun gift ideas to bring home. All your family members take their candy and sit by the misty fountain in the middle of the complex to enjoy the sugar rush. You’re also able cross the big department stores off your shopping list at this location, allowing you to pick up some replacements for items you forgot to pack.
