After writing my post about the Las Vegas Must See List I discovered I skipped an important shopping, eating, and non-gaming venue: Town Square. It’s at the south end of the Strip, just south of the airport. I was reminded when PC and I went there for date night.
There’s a movie theatre, numerous restaurants, upscale (yet mostly affordable) shopping, and an Apple store. I know, the Apple store is the most important attraction (and I don’t even own an Apple computer).
It’s a little village, with shops and restaurants lining the streets, and condos or businesses leasing the space above. There’s a comedy (stage) theatre that isn’t quite open yet. In the center, there is a large grassy area with a pond and outdoor stage that features live performers. Next to this is a children’s area featuring all sorts of multi-level play houses with tiled roofs and even miniature staircases. My favorite house has a wrought iron spiral staircase to the second level and a kitchen in the ground level.
For whatever reason, every time we go to Town Square I think of Christmas. This may be because it opened near Christmas time last year, and we actually visited the first time on its opening weekend.
