Opened in 2007, Town Square sets on 117 acres south of Mandalay Bay, and has over 100 stores and 20 restaurants. With its beautiful setting and wide variety of stores, it’s become very popular with tourists and Las Vegas locals alike.
Although not really on the Strip, Town Square is on Las Vegas Boulevard, about 1 mile south of Mandalay Bay. It’s cobblestone streets, trees, and architecture makes it feel like your strolling through a southern European village.
The mall’s Town Square Park is pretty oasis in the middle of the shops. There you can find some shade and grab a snack or meal at one of the many counter-style restaurants on the outskirts of the park. (We liked the tater tots at the Potato Corner). You can stroll over the bridge, or just sit and people-watch.
Next to the park is a wonderful children’s play area. With two young kids, I hit up all the parks, and the one at Town Square impressed me to no end. I killed two hours here easily while my wife blew our next month’s mortgage payment at the shops.
It really is a fantastic park, with play houses, slides, climbing nets, a splash pad, tree house, and even a maze for kids.
If the park doesn’t fully entertain your young ones, there’s a train ride nearby that circles around the west end of the mall. Tickets are $3 each.

Besides the selection of restaurants and shops, there’s a movie theater, called the AMC Town Square 18. Then there’s Stoney’s Rockin’ Country, which as you can imagine, is a country bar. On top of that, The Baobab Stage, which is across from the Yard House, hosts singers, dancers, an open mic night, and even burlesque dancers at night on occasion, proving that in Las Vegas, there’s even strippers at the mall.
I’m not a mall or shopping person, but if you are going to spend a half day or so, taking you wife out shopping, the Town Square Mall in Las Vegas is a nice contrast to the blandness of your typical suburban mall.
Bus to Town Square
With a bus stop right out in front of Town Square, on Las Vegas Boulevard, it’s very easy to take a bus to and from the Town Square back to your hotel on the Strip.
Going there, you’ll want to take the “SDX.” This stands for “Strip Downtown Express,” and busses run every15 minutes. There are many stops along the Strip, and probably one right out in front of your hotel. With walking to the bus stop and riding time, it would take you about 1/2 hour to get from Caesars Palace’s front door to the Town Square.
You’ll get off, of course, at the Town Square bus stop, right in front of the mall’s entrance. Going back, you’ll cross the street (Las Vegas Boulevard) to get on the northbound SDX bus at the Taylor Made Golf Center bus stop, which is almost right across the street from the bus stop where you got off to walk to the mall.
