Holiday Lights On The Strip
Conservatory at Bellagio Las Vegas
Bellagio Las Vegas has a collection of free attractions year-round. During the holidays, the conservatory incorporates all of the comforts of sugary-sweet holiday goodness, and the 2022 display is no exception.
North Bed: The House of Fabergé has three gorgeous eggs as the main centerpiece accompanying gingerbread baked by the Bellagio Pastry Team.
East Bed: Continue the gingerbread journey with a life-sized gingerbread house with all of the tenants.
South Bed: Play with the polar bears in a gingerbread kitchen.
West Bed: The West Bed includes the whole gingerbread village, crowned with a gorgeous Mt. Shasta tree adorned in thousands of lights.
Enchant Light Maze at Resorts World Las Vegas
Enchant is on everyone’s radar as a must-visit destination this holiday season. Over four million lights make up this Las Vegas Strip ice skating maze, and the giant tree holding court in the center of it all is a splendor to behold. Inside the maze, nine reindeer are stationed around the paths, each illuminated with their names and spindly antlers to match.
Swarovski Tree Lighting at The Shops at Crystals at ARIA Resort & Casino
A truly unique spectacle, the 60-foot Swarovski crystal ornament-adorned tree is back to delight shoppers and light viewers for the first time in three years. Once you’re done with that holiday shopping on the Strip, grab a hot drink and cozy up to look at limited-edition ornaments and baubles.
Find festive scenes nestled inside the lobby at ARIA Resort and the Wynn atrium. Gingerbread palaces, snowy scenes, holiday lights, and general magic are on display for holiday cheer done in style.
Holiday Lights Off The Strip
Holiday Cactus Garden at Ethel M
If the grounds at Ethel M Chocolate Factory weren’t delightful enough, the converted lights wonderland adds to the sweet appeal. Intertwined with the outdoor cactus displays, the lights setup is a colorful exhibition of holiday charm. After, head inside for a chocolate tasting class with optional pairings, or a tour of the factory and gift shop.

Glittering Lights at Las Vegas Motor Speedway
This drive-thru light show lets guests enjoy Christmas cheer from the comfort of their cars. Over two miles of lit pathways constitute the Speedway grounds, and a percentage of each ticket benefits Speedway Children’s Charities. Purchase tickets in advance and don’t feel bad about packing people into a car or truck bed to move through the 40-minute display — so long as it’s at the venue.
Mystic Falls Park Winter Wonderland at Sam’s Town
Combining waterfalls and a laser lights show has never been more festive. The Mystic Falls Laser Lights Show runs daily between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m. on select days. During the holidays, a drink from Ram’s Head Bar sweetens the viewing. For another mode of transportation, the Santa Tram provides a spectacular show running every 15 minutes from select evening hours.
Magical Forest at Opportunity Village
Candy canes, colored lights and general Christmas decorations make up the decor of Opportunity Village’s Magical Forest. The blue arches of the Avalanche Slide are a whimsical ride, as well as the Forest Express Passenger Train. Don’t forget the photos with Santa for the best lit-up joy of all — the smiles on your kid’s faces. Closed on Christmas Day.
