If you want to experience a true local shopping experience, look no further than Meadows Mall.
Located 15 minutes from the Las Vegas Strip at Valley View Boulevard (just off the Interstate 95 North), Meadows Mall offers a variety of specialty shops and department stores. With wide walkways and escalators everywhere, navigating through the shops is a breeze.
Department stores include Dillard's, JC Penney, Macy's and Sears. Ladies, you're in luck: Meadows Mall features stores carrying all of the latest looks without breaking your bank. Shop for the perfect dress and heels ensemble at Charlotte Russe or A'Gaci Too. Styles for Less and XXI Forever offer bright and fun dresses, perfect for the younger crowd. For an even younger crowd, the Disney Store is a treat for the little ones. However, The Frisky Pet Emporium could be trouble: You and your kids might walk out of the store with a new pet!
For those who have everything they need but shoes, Meadows Mall has got you covered. Popular shoe stores include Finish Line, Footaction, Foot Locker, Lady Foot Locker, Journeys and Champs Sports, to name a few. For something dressier, fancy yourself with a trip to Aldo.
While we're on the subject of fancy, Meadows Mall is home to a dozen jewelers like Zales Jewelers, Kay Jewelers, Gordon's Jewelers and more. Since you're in Vegas, it's the perfect time to indulge.
With all that shopping, you'll be sure to work up an appetite. The food court has favorites like McDonald's, Johnny Rocket's and Hot Dog On A Stick. Cool down and grab a smoothie at at Surf City Squeeze or frozen yogurt at Yo Fresco.
Family-friendly amenities include a children's play area and a nursing lounge. And since you're in the neighborhood, make sure to check out Springs Preserve down the street.
