A slice of the Northeastern seashore moves west to Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens for the summer floral exhibition. Inspired by water, light and scent, guests are transported to the atmosphere of New England through September 9. New to the summer exhibition is a blue and white lighthouse with a rotating light as well as live performances by classical and jazz guitarists daily from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Visitors are encouraged to escape the desert heat and venture to the East Coast for a few moments, where a carousel, egrets, floral frogs, ladybugs and soaring balloons enhance the seasonal ambiance. The rocky shore of the coastal pond boasts the perfect habitat for a sailboat, truly representing an American summer.
In conjunction with the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art’s exhibit “Claude Monet: Impressions of Light,” the Conservatory has created a floral interpretation of Claude Monet’s Cap Martin, Near Menton, comprised of 1,000 flowers. Located in the Giardini corner, the recreated painting is fitted within a 6-foot tall elaborately carved frame.
Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is complimentary and open to the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
