Did you know Las Vegas has it’s very own scrumptious Chocolate Factory and Botanical Cactus Garden?
Last night my family and I attended our first Holiday event of the season. With only 32 shopping days left before Christmas, and a mere week until Thanksgiving, it was a great way to kick of the holiday season.
Las Vegas Family Holiday Event Information:
Located at Two Cactus Garden Drive in Henderson (Just outside the Las Vegas city line and 10 minutes from the strip) the the Ethel M Chocolate factory and Botanical Cactus Garden is beautiful year-round, but during the holidays it becomes a visual treat every night!
This year marks the 19th annual Cactus lighting, and newly added for this event are the 3D glasses which visitors can use to see falling snowflakes on their walk through the gardens.
The garden will be lit nightly from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m and is free to the public.
Chocolate Gifts For Everyone!
Don’t forget to stop into the factory where you can see the finest ingredients used to create the delicious treats Ethel M Chocolates is known for. While you are there a trip into the gift shop is perfect for picking up some holiday gifts for everyone on your list. My personal holiday favorite is the Ethel M Peppermint bark which retails for $18 per decorative tin. Perfect for the chocolate lover on your gift list.

I have been to Vegas 3x and still have not made it to Ethel Ms. My husband is allergic to chocolate and has no interest. 🙁
