Las Vegas Top 10 FREE Things to See and Do

Dancing Waters at Bellagio Casino

There’s so many things to see and do in Las Vegas. Whether you’re on a budget or not, here’s the 10 best things to see and do for FREE in Las Vegas.

1. Dancing Waters at Bellagio Casino
http://www.bellagio.com/attractions/fountains-of-bellagio.aspx

Showtimes (Schedule may vary):
Monday-Friday: 3-7p.m. Shows every 1/2 hour, 7pm-12am Shows every 15 minutes
Saturdays, Sundays* and Holidays: 12-7pm Shows every 1/2 hour, 7pm 12am Shows every 15 minutes

A refreshing addition to your entertainment options, the Fountains of Bellagio were destined to romance your senses. Take in a complimentary Las Vegas show of water, music and light thoughtfully interwoven to mesmerize its admirers. All for your amusement, the most ambitious, choreographically complex water feature ever conceived amazes against the beautiful backdrop of Las Vegas’ lavender sky. Each dynamic performance from the Fountains collection is unique in its expression and interpretation. Fall in love with the stunning nature of this unprecedented aquatic accomplishment while relishing a clever concert of opera, classical and Broadway tunes.

2. Be a Tourist and Walk Around every Major Casino

Every casino has a unique theme and it’s own vibe. The Casino’s are so different that when you first walk through the doors, it feels like you’ve transported to some place different in the world. I can easily walk around and spend a couple hours in each major casino and admire the architecture and see all the attractions each casino has to offer. If it’s your first time going to Vegas, I suggest you spend a day and walk into all the Casino’s on one side of the Las Vegas strip and another day to walk up the other side of the strip. It’s also worth spending a couple hours walking through some of the Casino’s on Freemont Street to get a feel of what old Vegas was like.

 

3. Fall of Atlantis Fountain Show at The Forum Shops in Caesar’s Palace
http://www.vegas.com/attractions/on-the-strip/caesars-atlantis-fountain/

Showtimes: Every hour on the hour Sunday – Thursday, 10 am – 11 pm; Friday and Saturday, 10am – midnight.

If you’re not a fan of Greek or Roman mythology, the Fall of Atlantis might just change that. You’ve never seen action like this. The fountain show uses animatronic statues (including a scary 20-foot winged dragon) while incorporating an awesome fire and water show. Get your video camera ready for the dramatic, mind-blowing special effects, neon lights and the surrounding fountains. For a second, you forget you’re in a mall.

 

4. Fremont Street Experience Light Show – Neon Tour on Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas

Get enchanted by the beautiful Sirens of TI as they lure a band of renegade pirates into their cove with powerful and captivating melodies. The clash between the mesmerizing temptresses and their rebel prey transforms this 17th century story into a 21st century revelry of song and dance, seduction and danger. Experience the excitement nightly in Siren’s Cove at the front entrance of Treasure Island Hotel and Casino.

10 Tips to Save Money in Las Vegas

LasVegasTips

Are you planning a trip to Las Vegas? Here’s 10 proven tips that will help cut costs and save you money on your next vacation to Las Vegas.

1. Plan your trip before you go. You can save big if you research and plan your trip ahead. Vegas offer lots of terrific deals if you do your homework.  Have you checked Groupon.com, LivingSocial.com or other discount sites? You can save big with off 50% deals on hotel rooms, show tickets, restaurants, buffets, popular tourist attractions, helicopter rides, etc…

2. Most people visit Las Vegas from Thursday-Sunday. Flights and Hotels charge a huge premium during these days. You can save big if you visit Las Vegas from Monday-Thursday. Plus you can avoid the crowd and don’t have to wait in line for anything.

3. Check Groupon, Living Social and Restaurants.com for food discounts. Some establishments will set a minimum spend value; choose wisely, tip decent and you might save more than 30%. These sites might also help you find things to do or snag show tickets. Speaking of shows there are plenty vendors that are trying to fill their quota so day of show tickets may come cheap, haggle here.

4. Bring snacks, you may find that buffets are reasonably priced but overload on one and you could feel bloated the rest of the trip; add heat and you’re bound to not have fun.

5. Take a hike. Everyone complains that they can only do a few days in Las Vegas. Well, take a hike to Red Rocks Canyon just 30 minutes West of the Strip. With multiple hikes at different difficulties, it’s right for anyone. Be sure to bring water.

6. Go off the strip. Everything on the Vegas Strip is expensive. Visit Fairmont Street, the Outlet Malls or Chinatown.

7. Bring your ID with you wherever you go. Student, military and senior discounts are out there be sure to bring it. Even if you’ve been out of school for a while.

8. The strip has a very nice open container law on the strip. Plan a night to walk the strip and pack your own drinks and mixers into your bag. Remember to buy your alcohol at local grocery stores to avoid paying $10 drinks.

9. Avoid slot machines. There is no advantage you on slots it all goes to the house. Smart way to gamble if you do is to play black jack. If you don’t know how casino offer learning times for black jack, Roulette and Craps. If you gamble, gamble smart.

10. Sign up for your casinos free players card with a throw away email address. Offers on food, drink and playing are there but the card does help to say you plan on coming back. The old ways of drinks while gambling are gone and even pit bosses won’t jump to comp you anything unless you’re consistently betting more than $75-$100 a hand.
