When heading to Las Vegas on a vacation, most people think that they will spend a lot of money. Of course you will need to find your own way to get there and find a hotel to stay in but there are a lot of things to do in Las Vegas for cheap or free. Here are the ways you can have a good time without breaking the bank.
There are a ton of things to see for free. Outside of the Bellagio Hotel they have a fountain show. This is gorgeous and goes off all day long every 30 minutes. During certain times they do it every 15 minutes. You can see water and lights all set to music in this show. It is worth watching more than once.
Circus Circus Hotel has performers all the time and you can just walk around and enjoy the view. The Fremont Street Experience is the biggest light show you will ever see and they also offer various free concerts down there. During the country music awards, you can catch big stars performing for free. You can also check out the big volcano outside of The Mirage hotel. It goes off every half hour as well. They also have a huge aquarium in the lobby you can see for free. The Ethel M Chocolate Factory gives free tours as well.
Make sure that you check out the things to do at your hotel and others in the area. You can swim for free at the hotel you are stay at during your trip. Most of the casinos have a reward program you can sign up for which will give you free money to play on. Also you can normally get free drinks while gambling so if you are going to gamble take advantage of that offer.
One great thing to do is people watch. All over the strip you will notice people dress in costumes, doing tricks, and more. You simply have to remember not to actually interact with them or this could cost you money. If you take a picture with one of them, they will expect you to give them a tip. If you interact with the people doing games on the streets, you can be taken advantage of and lose some money.
If you still need more free stuff to do in Las Vegas, just start checking out the various casinos. You will find great things to look at including the ceiling in The Venetian that looks like the sky and Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas.
Just remember that Las Vegas is a place that is constantly changing. You will want to do your research right before you go and find out what all is going on at the time you will be in town. Enjoy your trip to this fun city.
