The Bellagio on the Las Vegas strip is famously known for its beautiful water-dancing fountains but the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens inside are just as wondrous.
In this post, I’m sharing my experience walking through the gardens and a peak into the fall exhibit for your viewing pleasures.
Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden
Las Vegas took a pretty big hit when COVID crashed in at the beginning of the year but most hotels and casinos are back up and running, with many safety guidelines, of course.
So to get even more in the fall mood, I took a stroll (with my handy-dandy face mask) down the strip and visited the gardens at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino.
If you’ve never been to Las Vegas or you’ve been here but have never gone inside the Bellagio, you’re in for a treat.
The Bellagio’s “enormously talented horticulturalists and designers who make the the Bellagio Conservatory team transform this 14,000-square-foot floral playground into a showcase of the distinctive sights and colors of spring, summer, fall and winter – along with a special display of Chinese New Year.”
But what’s even more awesome is that they recycle 90% the flowers, plants and trees from season to season as displays are switched out.
If you’d like to read a bit more about the conservatory’s details, visit Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden.
Oh and best of all, the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens are completely free admission to the public!
They’re pretty easy to find as well.
If you’re on the strip, all you gotta do is make your way up the hotel lobby. Once inside, you’ll find the Front Desk to your left and the Conservatory will be straight ahead.
There are signs everywhere if you find yourself a little lost. And the staff is always available if you have any questions!
So, let’s get back to the Bellagio’s fall exhibit!
Bellagio’s Into The Woods
They’re calling this year’s fall exhibit Into The Woods, and rightfully so.
The colors and the details and the massive window ceiling, it all took my breath away. (nearly choked on my mask)
If they ever create an even larger display, I would pay money to see it.
Here are some photos for your entertainment:
They really thought of everything.
As I walked through trying not to miss a single thing, the details is what draws you in. Aside from the huge displays and bountiful colors, the Woods actually feel like woods.
Doesn’t that tree just make you wanna start singing with the birds and frolic along the pretty flowers?
Or lay underneath it with a good book and a picnic basket?
My trip to the Bellagio to check out this fall exhibit was not just to take pics for Instagram. (Although I did just do that…)
But it was also to get out of my apartment (safely) and be more in the present.
Yes, I still took photos, but I made sure to be mindful during the entire experience.
It can be difficult to find moments of gratitude and appreciation at times but even just a few moments of mindfulness every day can make a world of difference.
Thank you so much for reading and hope you enjoyed a peak into the Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens.
I’ll leave you with one question:
Have you taken time to be fully present today no matter where you are?
