Free Things to Do in Las Vegas

Posted On: 06/23/2017

Las Vegas is an expensive city, but it doesn’t have to be. There are all kinds of free things to do in Las Vegas. If you’re looking for something fun and to save a little money in Vegas, check out guide of free things to do in Las Vegas:

The Fountains of Bellagio

The Fountains of Bellagio have become one of the staples of the Strip. The Bellagio put on an electronically orchestrated water show set to the likes of Celine Dion and Tony Bennett. Special programs are also created for the holidays.

The Volcano at the Mirage

Like the Fountains of the Bellagio, the volcano at the Mirage is another can’t miss sight on the Strip. The volcano erupts every half hour—shooting flames and lightning effects, all set to a heart-pounding soundtrack.

Art in Las Vegas

You may not realize it, but Las Vegas is one of the greatest cities to view free art in the world! From the CityCenter campus which includes work by Nancy Rubin, Claes Oldernburg and Coosje van Bruggen to Jeff Koons statues at the Wynn.

Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens

Bellagio’s botanical garden is another can’t miss Las Vegas tourist spot that is totally free. The garden is 14,000-square-foot with seasonal and holiday displays throughout the year.

The Flamingo's Wildlife Habitat

The Flamingo's Wildlife Habitat is home to swans, ducks, koi, turtles, two rescued pelicans, and, of course, flamingos. The habitat costs nothing and is very family friendly. It’s the perfect escape from the neon Strip with easy walking paths to wander through with your kids.

The Circus

While the rides aren’t free at Circus-Circus, you can catch the world’s largest permanent Circus for free. Watch highflying acrobats, above the casino floor, every half hour at completely no charge.

Ethel M Chocolate Factory

Ethel M Chocolate Factory is a sweet place to check out in Las Vegas. Ethel M Chocolates is located in the Botanical Cactus Garden, the largest cactus garden in Nevada! Take a leisurely stroll through the cactus garden and a factory tour of Ethel M’s (with free samples, of course).

Forum Shops at Caesars Palace

While it may cost a lot of money to shop at the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, it costs nothing to check it out. The area includes the Fall of Atlantic show with huge talking statues and pyrotechnics. The show is free and fun to watch.

Downtown Container Park

The Downtown Container Park is a retail, dining, and play space built from shipping containers. Free entertainment events and outdoor movies are held through the year. Check Container Park’s calendar for special events.

Red Rock National Conservation Area

Located away from the city, the Red Rock National Conservation Area is a great spot for picnics, hiking, sightseeing, and has no entry fee. Summer temperatures may get a little extreme, so check ahead before taking a hike yourself.
