With a huge variety of stores, great restaurants, a grocery store, theater and children’s play area, all intertwined within beautiful architectural setting and Mediterranean theme, the Town Square Mall in Las Vegas is a pleasant and easy diversion from the casino action.
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, 1.2 million square feet, 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.
It’s exact address is as follows:
Las Vegas, NV 89119
Phone: (702) 269-5001
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. It has recently been refreshed with climbing cubes, slides, a trampoline and water jets when it’s warm. I killed two hours here easily while my wife blew the money I won at craps at the shops.
(The Town Square Mall is marked by the yellow pin at the bottom)
There are play buildings, play towers, a fort, rock wall, and even a kid-friendly maze. You’ll find public restrooms here as well.
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 (The Cactus Coaster) that circles around the west end of the mall. Tickets are $4, but adults riding with a child 2 or under ride for free.
In addition, there’s a 12,000 square foot open space (with natural grass) called “The Green” that hosts picnics and special events, including movies in the summertime.

Bus to Town Square
Other than Uber/Lyft and taxi, you can take the Las Vegas bus system.
Up until 2017, there had been a free shuttle that ran six times a day, to the Strip and back. However it has been discontinued.
Those of you wanting to take the Las Vegas public bus system should know that 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 any hotel on the Strip.
Going there, you’ll want to take the “SDX.” This stands for “Strip Downtown Express,” and buses run every 15 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.
