Take a trip to the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens and several things are notable. First, the new summer display is gorgeous with some 27,500 flowers and plants and structures designed, built and decorated by some 76 team members. Second, the crowds are back with no restrictions. Cell phone cameras, selfie sticks and people are everywhere. The display is called “Eco: A Season of Earthly Awareness” and is on display through August 18,
Purpose of the display: To enhance visitors’ appreciation of the planet by “featuring Mother Nature at its finest”.
I joined the throngs last Tuesday and took pictures during my visit. A couple days later when I was downtown to see Gordie Brown, a walk on Fremont Street was so full of people it was as if Covid 19 never existed. Then on Friday, a friend and I went to see Big Elvis at Harrah’s. Crowds and fun and few masks were at each location. Yep…welcome back, Vegas!
No photo is like an in-person visit, (The Bellagio Conservatory is open seven days a week, 24 hours a day and is free to visit) but you’ll get some idea of the Bellagio display and the downtown crowd in the accompanying pictures.
