You can’t really cut your own Christmas tree in the Las Vegas area, since Christmas tree lots only offer pre-cut tree-buying experiences with a variety of special attractions and a lot of family fun. However, if you are willing to travel just a bit within the city or on the outskirts, you can still spend an enjoyable morning or afternoon at a winter wonderland, or take a short trek to two of the longest-standing Christmas tree lots in town. It may not be over the river and through the woods, but it’s a fun experience for families and children will have Christmas memories of wandering through the trees to pick just the right one to grace your home.

Frosty’s is a third-generation, family-run operation that has been a holiday destination for many Las Vegas residents for 40 years. This family considers a fresh tree to be a tradition which should be carried out every year, even in the desert. As Linda, the original owner, states, “There is nothing like a fresh tree that makes your house smell like Christmas,” Frosty’s Christmas Trees sells Noble firs, Douglas firs and Frasers, along with beautiful wreaths and fragrant garlands. Trees come from Oregon, Washington and North Carolina and were cut less then three days before arriving at the lot. This spot also offers the convenience of tree recycling after the holidays.
