Ethel M – Las Vegas, NV
The Ethel M chocolate factory in Las Vegas, NV is a tourist attraction all its own, providing guests a chance to see how Ethel M’s delicious morsels are made. One of the factory’s more impressive features is actually on the outside – a massive garden of cacti. During the holiday season, this peaceful walk turns into a wondrous display of lights and Christmas characters – including the chocolatiers own red and yellow M&Ms. Every cactus within the 15,000 cubic yard botanical space is covered in colorful, sparkling lights, creating a grand total of over 500,000 twinkling bulbs. On special nights, the big red jolly man from the North Pole makes a visit to his own little enclave within the garden.
