We were in Sin City this past weekend. There’s so much to do in Las Vegas that we’ll focus here only on those that are FREE and also in the proximity of the intersection of The Strip and Flamingo Road. That means you could do all 5 Free Things in one day!
Walk past the Bellagio Hotel on The Strip, and the fountains are hard to miss. In fact, from 8pm-midnight, there’s a show every 15 minutes, and it takes that long to walk the block.
As long as you’re walking past the Bellagio to see the fountains, pop inside to see the botanical display, which changes according to the seasons. Autumn Harvest is up through November 27, and then Winter Holiday will run December 3 – January 2.
The Mirage isn’t right that on the corner, but it’s only a short walk past Caesars from the Bellagio. You don’t even have to go inside to see, hear, and feel the erupting volcano. Time your walk so that you catch a show at 8pm or 9pm, with an additional 10pm show on Friday and Saturday.
Caesars Fall of Atlantis
Go to the Forum Shoppes for the shopping, of course, which is not free. While you’re there, swing by the atrium for the animatronics show that recounts the myth of Atlantis. If you enter the shopping area from Caesars casino, you’ll also walk by the replica of Trevi fountain (at Trevi restaurant) to get to the Atlantis show.
Paris Dueling Pianos
Napoleon’s Lounge is situated in the cobblestone streets of France, and it hosts a dueling piano show every evening at 9:30pm-1:30am. If you go in, you’ll likely want to order food or beverage, but you can hear the music just walking around the area of shops and restaurants or on your way from Paris to Bally’s or the parking garage.
Walk The Strip. It’s free and it burns calories. Plus, the people watching is excellent. Here’s a MAP.
