Whim­si­cal Win­ter Won­der­land


Even if the weather out­side isn’t fright­ful, head in­doors to dis­cover one of the most de­light­ful ex­hibits of the year at the Bel­la­gio Con­ser­va­tory. Here, a mother polar bear adorned with 12,000 white car­na­tions keeps a watch­ful eye on her three cubs as they slip and slide across ice­bergs float­ing in a win­ter pond, and an­i­mated pen­guins build igloos and frolic with one an­other. The ma­jes­tic hol­i­day tree, dec­o­rated with 7,000 warm white LED lights and 2,500 ornaments, stands as the Con­ser­va­tory’s fo­cal point. The free dis­play, which is open 24 hours, was cre­ated by a team of 140 hor­ti­cul­tur­al­ists who pay ex­quis­ite at­ten­tion to de­tail. 702.693.7111
