My Favourite Place In The World

Chinese New Year at Bellagio's Conservatory

[twitter]There’s something about the Bellagio’s Conservatory that makes me smile. 5 times a year a gorgeous display of flowers and models is created to reflect the season. From penguins and polar bears in winter, to huge pumpkins for fall, I love this greenhouse just off the lobby of the Bellagio.

Specially designed lighting spotlights every flower to accentuate its best features. To ensure the Conservatory & Botanical Gardens maintains magnificence 365 days a year, 140 expert horticulturists theatrically arrange gazebos, bridges, ponds, and water features uniquely for each season. Treat yourself to this unrivaled attraction’s ever changing personality for the Holidays, Chinese New Year, spring, summer, and fall.

Some of my other favorite places (the back steps of Versailles, the Douglas Fir trail in Calgary, and Ferguson Point in Vancouver) are loved because they’re quiet places to think.

The Conservatory at the Bellagio, however, has become a favorite because of the imagination and creativity and colour in the room. There was a time when it was a quiet place, not anymore – but in my nearly 2 dozen visits to Las Vegas, I always make time to visit the Conservatory and see the latest colors.
