Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Garden, Las Vegas

For travelers with or without disabilities, Las Vegas is becoming less about the casinos, and more about “The Experience.” Whether you’re looking for award-winning cuisine, color beyond compare, or a blast of contemporary culture, you’ll find it in “the city that never sleeps.” And with great accessibility. I’ve never seen more scooters per capita than in Las Vegas!

Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Garden

Start your wowing by scootering through Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Garden (located at Bellagio Hotel & Casino). Every season, this 14,000 square-foot floral playground thematically transforms with horticultural creativity. While visiting in May 2018, my husband and I experienced “Japanese Spring,” complete with cherry trees in blossom, crafted floral designs, and large cages of live canaries in song. We both felt transported to a place of joyous imagination and uplifting beauty.

There is no charge for admittance, just roll on in.

Although we met many visitors on scooters within the exhibit, I spun around with my power chair amongst the strolling international tourists and floral displays. Upon arrival to the hotel, we utilized valet parking at the north entrance, taking any stress out of ramping the power chair in and out of our vehicle. Once inside, we headed for the hotel lobby— spectacularly adorned with Chihuly glass flowers on the ceiling. The conservatory and garden are within view of the lobby.

Prepare for amazement.

Café Bellagio
At Café Bellagio, adjacent to the gardens, there were several red scooters parked inside while the riders enjoyed their lunches. I navigated my power chair all the way to our table overlooking the gardens with no problem.

So beautiful. So delicious. So memorable.

Fountains of Bellagio
What would a hotel with fabulous gardens be without fountains? Fountains dancing to song that is. This is Las Vegas after all. Spin outside, park your scooter alongside the balustrade, and enjoy this marvelous sight. Daily after 3 PM. Schedule details here.


Making Accessibility Happen

Accessible travel for people with disabilities is becoming big business. Speak with your dollars, your vote, and your voice to let commerce know what’s working, and what’s not.
