Merry Christmas! Since we won’t be in Atlanta tomorrow, we’re spending the morning having lunch with our families minus my mom (shout out to my mom who has to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas day because people in healthcare can never get days off. Gotta keep people alive!).
It was nice getting to catch up with friends. It seems like it’s baby central, and everyone we know has at least one additional baby. We don’t quite know where we stand on babies other than knowing we’re terrified of having them.
We’re getting on a plane and heading back to Vegas later this evening (*crossing fingers* for no delays), and we just wanted to leave you with some photos from the Bellagio Botanical Gardens. In our opinion, they know how to do Christmas best in all of Las Vegas.

Christmas at Bellagio Botanical Gardens
The Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio is one of our favorite spots on the Strip. We try to visit to see all the seasonal decor throughout the year and are always impressed with their displays. Christmas is one of the most magical times to visit, and we can’t wait to go again this year.
What You Need to Know About the Bellagio Botanical Gardens
The Bellagio Botanical Gardens is hard to miss. It’s just beyond the front desk lobbies, and you can usually find a crowd of people there. The 14,000 square foot space completely transforms five times a year.
- Spring (March to June)
- Summer (June to September)
- Fall (September to November)
- Winter (December to January)
- Lunar New Year (January to March)
The gardens are closed between each season for 5-6 days to redecorate. Otherwise, it’s open 24/7, and it’s free to enter.

Christmas at the Bellagio 2020
Christmas at the Bellagio 2014
- The gardens get crowded making it hard to take photos. The best time to visit is early mornings when most people are still sleeping in.
- The exhibits are big, bring a wide lens to capture the scale of everything.
- The Giardini Garden Store is just around the corner and sells unique garden-themed gifts and home decor.
- While you’re there, be sure to check out the giant chocolate fountain at the Bellagio Patisserie too!
