The Flowers and Gardens of Las Vegas

For a city in the middle of a desert,  Las Vegas is filled with beautiful, bountiful gardens and flowers, and most are  free and open to the public.  I'm not a gambler nor a drinker, but I loved walking  the strip and enjoying the gorgeous flower arrangements and gardens.  I've already done an extensive garden post on the Bellagio Gardens HERE,  but I also wanted to show some other hotel fabulous gardens so I decided to do another post.

The Flamingo Hotel has the prettiest and most enjoyable outdoor garden in Las Vegas.  Why?  It not only has lovely flowers, lawns, and garden paths but it also has amazing water features and live animals.  

I loved their Flamingo water fountain!

This is a beautiful water fall that provides a great photo opportunity with the hotel logo on the rock wall and the gorgeous flower pot displays bordering each side.

The water feature is filled with koi and many different kinds of waterfowl.

There are multiple water falls in the garden with all different heights.

There were so many different kinds of waterfowl I couldn't possibly show them all to you.  Here are some of my favorites.  A pelican.

A mother duck with her babies, plus some turtles.

 And what would the Flamingo hotel be without Flamingos?

They also had parrots that you could hold under the guidance of the animal trainers and many, many different types of ducks.

On the Vegas strip hotel, flowers and gorgeous well-groomed palm trees are everywhere.  I loved this long bed of white roses.

Like the Bellagio, the Wynn hotel also had a beautiful, ornate garden inside the lobby.

This carousel is covered in flowers.

The pathway is lined with trees that are all lit up.  The branches canopy above your head and lovely flower covered balls hang from their branches.

Here is a close up of the flower covered balls.

I loved this flower covered hot air balloon.

I enjoyed the beautiful colorful tile on the walk way as much as the flowers.

 If you'd like to see more of the Wynn Hotel, check out this post HERE.  I have their fountains and unique ceilings in that post.

Another hotel that has amazing outdoor and indoor gardens is the Mirage.  There is a large glass dome ceiling in the Mirage that lets in natural light.

The tropical plants love soaking up the sun light.

There is also a gorgeous water fountain and bridge inside the hotel.

The exterior grounds of the Mirage are also breath-taking.  There are numerous waterfalls, plus there is a volcano show after dark.

The size of the exterior water feature runs the entire city block.  They have numerous waterfalls from these small ones shown here to quite tall ones (shown in previous post, linked above).  I also really liked all their dolphin states scattered about their water feature.  They have a Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at the Mirage as well, but we did not go to that as it costs about $22.00 per person.    They also have lions, tigers, and leopards in this area to view.

Have a Great Day!  Amy
