Las Vegas is famous for its ability to separate vacationers from their money. Casinos, live entertainment, fine dining, and shopping temptations are just some of the ways spending can add up. Luckily, this glitzy city also offers wonderful free attractions that thrill thousands of visitors every day. Here are some of the best free attractions worth experiencing in fabulous Las Vegas!
Fremont Street Experience
If there was ever a great reason to venture off the Vegas Strip, the Fremont Street Experience is it. Located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, this sprawling five-block entertainment district is home to the world’s largest video screen, Viva Vision.
The screen is suspended nearly 100 feet above a vibrant and colorful pedestrian mall full of entertainment and fun. The screen is 1500-feet long, almost 100 feet wide, and features more than 12 million LED lights. You haven’t really lived until you’ve watched one of the spectacular free light shows displayed every night. Fremont Street also has daily free entertainment!
The Bellagio Conservatory
When a hotel employs over 100 gardeners, you know something special must be in the works. And 5 million annual visitors to the Bellagio Conservatory know it, too. They flock here to see 14,000 square feet of floral fantasy designed five times per year in celebration of the Chinese New Year and the four seasons.
This free attraction features magnificent sculptures and displays designed entirely from plants and flowers. The magical artistry of the gardeners, engineers and designers brings to life everything from giant polar bears to graceful swans, horses, holiday characters and more.
The Volcano at The Mirage
Imagine witnessing a fiery, dramatic spectacle of exploding lava, water, and smoke, right on the Vegas Strip! You can do just that every night for free, at The Volcano at the Mirage. This popular attraction draws hundreds of spectators every night, and the savvy tourist knows to arrive early for the best spot for viewing the big moment.
The Fountains at The Bellagio
We would be remiss not to include the uplifting extravaganza of water, music, and lights that is The Fountains at The Bellagio. This is yet another free experience that is second to none when it comes to great entertainment at no cost in Las Vegas. Witness more than 1200 powerful jets that launch towering displays of water nearly 500 feet into the air, with a breathtaking accompaniment of music and lights that can’t be missed.
There are multitudes of additional free shows and attractions to pursue in and around Las Vegas, from unique parks with dancing sculptures to pirate battle shows, shopping promenades, free museums and more! Take some time to get out and explore and you’ll find lots of fun that won’t break the bank!
