Take a stroll through one of the iconic seasonal stops in Las Vegas. Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is an indoor wonderland. Five times a year, a talented and imaginative staff transforms the indoor atrium into a magical and seasonal scene. One hundred twenty gardeners are responsible for creating displays entirely of organic matter: flowers, greens, moss, and more.
The display requires over 10,000 potted plants that are then recycled after the display changes. 90% of all the materials used are recycled for future use. You can visit and explore their winter display between December and January, seven days a week, and 24 hours a day.
