The Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden is one of Las Vegas' claims to fame. The garden is a sanctuary to more than 7,500 flowers, which are well-kept by 140 horticulturists. With its beautifully placed gazebos, ponds, bridges and water fountains, it's a refreshing oasis amidst the city. It's a delight to stroll through this riot of colors during the day with the light pouring in from the glass ceiling. The night tours are equally exotic with the stars overhead giving the garden a tranquil, fairy-tale feel.
Established in 1942, Little Church Of The West is the oldest wedding chapel in Las Vegas as well as the oldest building on the Strip. It is also perhaps the most charming, with a romantically rustic wooden construction. The list of famous celebrities who have been married here is extensive. It began with Betty Grable and Harry James, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, and more recently Cindy Crawford and Richard Gere. Even Elvis and Ann Margaret tied the knot on the silver screen here in the final scene from Viva Las Vegas. In 1992, the National Register of Historic Places placed it on its list in 1992.
