Ten Free Things To Do In Las Vegas

Destination(s): Las Vegas

Some of Las Vegas’ best-known attractions are free, like the Bellagio’s fountains, the Mirage’s volcano, and the TI’s pirate/siren show. At the Venetian, stroll through Old World Venice and have fun figuring out which “statues” are alive. Downtown, enjoy the Neon Museum’s Old Vegas signs while waiting for the Fremont Street Experience’s light show. Inside Planet Hollywood’s Miracle Mile Shops, experience an indoor rain storm. Mystic Falls has both a wolf and a bear—but if you’d like to see real animals, stop at the MGM Grand’s Lion Habitat. For free chocolate, take the tour at Ethel M’s Chocolate Factory. read more about Ten Free Things To Do In Las Vegas

The Bellagio's Fountains sound like a simple concept: shooting jets of water timed to music. But what sounds simple is actually a complex choreography of technology, sound, and water. Designed by WET Design, an international company that specializes in elaborate water displays, the Bellagio's Fountains are spread over the nine-acre lake in front of the Bellagio. Over 1,200 nozzles and 4,500 lights work together to shoot water 400+ feet in the air—but that's not all the fountains do. They sway, they dance, and they wow the crowds that gather to watch them.

Shows start in the afternoon, but the best time to see the fountains is at night. The combination of music and the illuminated dancing water is enchanting. Many people have already seen the fountains on television shows or in movies (most famously, the George Clooney remake of "Ocean's 11"). Romantic, spectacular, and iconic, the Bellagio's Fountains are a free Las Vegas attraction that's appropriate for anyone of any age.

An underground well supplies most of the water for the fountains. Prior to the Bellagio, the Dunes and its golf course were located here—thus, the well, which watered the golf course. The Dunes was imploded to make way for the Bellagio.

What happens to the signs when old casinos are torn down to make room for new resorts? They go to the Neon Museum! In The Neon Museum's Bone Yard you'll see Binion's Horseshoe, the famous Silver Slipper, signs from the Golden Nugget and the Sahara. These works of art are both classic pieces of Las Vegas history and visual reminders of times past. Eventually, the Neon Museum will open a permanent exhibit on the Las Vegas Strip in the rescued and historic La Concha Motel lobby, designed by internationally famous architect Paul Revere Williams.

Tours at the Boneyard are by advance appointment only; admission is $15.00 per person. Photography at the Boneyard is restricted to photos for personal use only. Several neon signs are on display at the Fremont Street Experience, and there is no charge to see those signs and no restrictions on photography.
