Today I have one of my very first blogger friends here to tell you all about her previous home sweet home..Las Vegas! Vivian is such a light in the blogging world, and I have connected with her since before I even had a blog of my own! I love her tips on free things to do in Vegas, and I am sure you will too!
After living in Las Vegas for quite some time and many trips after, I have found that some of my favorite things to do in Vegas are actually free! When I travel anywhere, I like to look online for a few things that are either free, or little cost. When you’re traveling you already have the expense of hotel, travel, food, etc. So it is always nice to have a few things to do that are free.
The Park | This is the newest edition to the Las Vegas strip, and honestly my new favorite. We recently went back to Vegas for a trip and it was right after the grand opening of The Park. I was blown away at how pretty everything was and the amount there was to do right in that area. We were staying at the Excalibur which is really close, and attended a concert at the brand new T-Mobile Arena which is located at the end of The Park. It is an environment that feels so fresh and separate from the hustle of the strip, and I didn’t want to leave! It is an outdoor dining and entertainment area that has so many delicious restaurants and bar areas (including Shake Shack). There are tons of picnic benches and fun lawn type games set up – life size jenga, connect four, corn hole, which is right up my alley. One night there was a live band, and the next a DJ, so it is definitely a form of free entertainment.
Bellagio Fountains | I remember in high school my friends and I would drive down to the strip just to watch the fountains, even though we had seen them a million times. They just never get old. I will definitely say to try and go at night, because the experience is a must. Each time feels different because they use different music and choreography for the fountains!
Conservatory | The Conservatory at Bellagio has to be on this list as well. The theme changes for the season, so if you go now, it will be something new for spring. The displays are so beautiful and make for great pictures.
Fremont Street Light Show – Every evening, multiple times a night there is a LED light show along with music. Although it isn’t on the strip it’s worth taking the drive to downtown Las Vegas at least to see it once. While you’re there, they also have zip lining but that is at an extra fee. Maybe one day I’ll try that. During the warmer months there are also many bands that preform outdoors for no cost.
Atlantis Show at Caesars Forum Shops – Not only is Caesars Palace a great place to go if you want to do some amazing shopping, but they also have a mini show that occurs every hour and it’s completely free. It’s a short and sweet show, plus it’s located right next to the three story H&M so you can also get some shopping in.
Thank you so much for this post, Vivian! Now I am excited to get back to Vegas!
