It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
The Bellagio’s Botanical Garden is a staple of Las Vegas. Each season, the team transforms the 14,000-square-foot Botanical Garden into a wonderland that showcases the spirit and beauty of each season. The four seasons, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter, are all uniquely displayed—along with a special edition for Lunar New Year. It takes a horticulture staff of 120 to maintain the Botanical Gardens! The team captures each season by selecting flowers that complement the trees, gazebos, bridges, and ponds and can add or remove water features to enhance the season’s unique mood.
This year’s Holiday Time features a gigantic 42-foot-tall fir tree decked to the nines with thousands of glittering lights! As you explore the gorgeous garden, you’ll find a picturesque snowcapped mountain range, along with the coziest Swiss chalet, and of course, Santa’s large sleigh filled to the brim with gifts. If you’ve been good, that is.
Each of the garden beds represents the magic of time-honored holiday traditions. Designer Ed Libby and the Bellagio Horticulture team did an excellent job capturing the spirit of the holiday season in this year’s theme, titled “Holiday Time .”
“Our teams work tirelessly to bring to life wonderful experiences throughout the year that keep guests coming back time and time again,” said Libby. “They’ve outdone themselves again with this year’s theme, which offers a glimpse of treasured time-honored holiday traditions while creating memorable moments and whimsical vignettes at every turn.”
Sustainability is fundamental to the design team, which is why they have committed to recycling the water, repurposing plant life and scenic props, and utilizing a green waste procedure. This separates plant material and soil matter before it’s transported to a local compost and eliminates 90% of landfill diversion!
A visit to The Bellagio’s Winter Wonderland is the perfect way to fully get into the spirit of the season! It is a great outing idea for friends and family, and you could make a whole winter day of it and swing by The Gilcrease Orchard to go pumpkin picking!
You have plenty of time to visit the Conservatory’s winter attraction, as it will remain until January 1, 2022.
