Las Vegas Shopping in the Midst of Aquariums, Rock Formation & Animal Dioramas
After we saw the free mermaid attraction at the Silverton Hotel. We checked out Bass Pro Shops which was connected seamlessly to the hotel. At first I thought was is there to see? I'm not into hunting nor fishing gear. But the massive rock formation out in the front makes you wanna just check it out. And good thing we did, coz' there's so much to see inside.
This place has rock formations, aquariums, African animal dioramas, a gun range and archery range on site and so much more. They really brought the outside in, into this store.
This store spans two levels of camping gear, fishing equipment, boats, and all things outdoorsy. This place has all sorts of things that will make the not-into-camping(ME) wanna go camping. Or simply want to shop for this fish mail box! Haha!
It's a feast for the eyes. Not your typical big box store. From the architecture to the awesome cabin offices. There's big fishes, lion jumping at you(thank God it's not real). And the best part is the beautiful rock formation.
"An 18,000 gallon water feature simulating Red Rock Canyon's beautiful rock formations is filled with spectacular live Koi. Three additional aquariums at Bass Pro Shops feature trout, channel catfish, carp and bass and include a flowing canyon river featuring ducks, turtles, bluegills and sturgeon." - from Bass Pro Shops Website.
Now ain't that a must see while you're in Vegas! Shopping in Vegas usually mean hoarding at Outlets or brand shopping at the posh hotels. But I'm glad I got to go into this store. Check back in a few days as I post our chocolate factory tour in Vegas.
