If you’re trying to stay within a budget in Las Vegas, penny slot machines can leave you literally penniless. But you don’t have to hit the slots to have a fantastic time! With casinos eager to entice visitors with freebies and discounts, there are plenty of free attractions that give you more bang for your buck. Here are the best free attractions in Las Vegas:
1. The Bellagio Fountains
Not only is this iconic, it’s 100% free. Watch over a thousand fountains dance to music. It’s an incredibly complex choreographed dance of light, water and sound with songs ranging from show tunes to Sinatra. The show starts every 15 to 30 minutes and hours vary by season. Don’t forget to head inside for some amazing seasonal gardening displays!
2. The Volcano at the Mirage
Every hour from 8 pm to midnight a volcano at the Mirage spews fire and smoke over 100 feet over water while music plays.
3. Flamingo Wildlife Habitat
At the Flamingo resort, check out koi, swans and dozens of Chilean Flamingos amidst tropical foliage and waterfalls.
4.Ethel M’s Chocolates Factory Tour and Cactus Garden
Enjoy a free, self-guided tour of a chocolate factory and learn about candy-making. Then enjoy the free samples at the end while wandering through over 300 cactuses at Ethel M’s four acre Botanical Cactus Garden next door. The garden is especially beautiful in the winter months when every plant is covered in Christmas lights.
5. Weekly Football Contest At the M Resort
You can participate in a contest where you guess which NFL teams will win each week. The first prize each week is $5,000 and there’s no cost to play. Even if you don’t win, it’s free, so you can’t lose!
6. Circus Acts
Acrobats, jugglers and trapeze artists dance on a midway in the middle of Circus Circus Casino. Its kid friendly and a lot of (free) fun.
7. Rio Masquerade Show in the Sky
Performers dance on floats that drift on tracks above the casino floor while tossing trinkets and freebies into the crowd.
Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the activities of Vegas. You can come to Vegas with empty pockets and leave with a wealth of experiences.
