The Best Free Attractions in Las Vegas

Affordable vacations often come with a misnomer of being cheap or down market but you can have a great experience in Las Vegas yet still retain a certain level of service and satisfaction. Looking for free attractions is not just about saving money, it is also about seeking out new and different experiences in and around the Las Vegas strip. Finding a something that is free while on vacation just adds to the mystique of being a traveler. Of course, we always love finding that which is undiscovered just as much but no money out of pocket is hard to beat.

In Las Vegas, the iconic images of the Las Vegas strip are often played out but standing next to the Fountains of Bellagio will still give you a thrill.  This attraction is free and it is among the best in entertainment that Las Vegas has to offer.  The some of the best views come from the patios of HYDE and LAGO inside Bellagio as well as from a terrace suite at Cosmopolitan Resort. However, center stage is free and that is accessed right from Las Vegas Blvd.


Bellagio Fountains continue to dance on the Las Vegas strip I can guarantee you that it never gets old to see the light shine brightly through the dancing water.



An erupting volcano in front of the Mirage is about as Las Vegas as Las Vegas can get. This resort is still going strong and the fire and excitement can still be seen out front on a daily basis. This show happens nightly although the time between shows is much longer than it once was so if you see it or hear it, race over and catch the show.



If you ever wanted to see what it feels like to stand under a few million dollars the Dale Chihuly glass sculpture in the lobby of Bellagio Las Vegas gives you an opportunity to try it out.



Just a few feet away from the lobby at Bellagio, the Gardens and Conservatory continue to fascinate visitors with an epic display that changes with the seasons. This free attraction will entice you to work on your green thumb.






I am not sure you want to go seeking out art in a parking garage on a daily basis but the Garage Art Cosmopolitan Resort is worth a trek through the exhaust. This urban sprawl of art is located on four different levels and fits in just right among the parked cars.


The massive collection of art at CityCenter is found throughout the property and it is a great reason to roam Aria resort in search of a little culture. Download their mobile app and you’ll have all the information you need at your fingertips.




Taste of the Arts at Wynn Las Vegas is a journey through the resort in search of fine art. Grab a brochure from the concierge desk and you’ll go on an excursion that will introduce you to artists both known and unknown.
