27 Free Things To Do In Las Vegas

27 Free Las Vegas Attractions

Las Vegas is one of the top destinations in the world. Free Las Vegas may have 27 of the best experience’s in the entire city. As a result, 41 million visitors come to Las Vegas a year, its ranked in the top 10 cities for Foodies and is home to 22,000 conventions. Because of the millions of lights all concentrated in one area it’s also the brightest spot in the world observed from space, literally. With 15 thousand miles of neon tubing, I’m not surprised.

At this time, half of the largest hotels in the world are here, on one four mile stretch of glamour. It’s no wonder Las Vegas makes it on almost everyone’s bucket list. With 150 Casinos and over 150,000 rooms there’s plenty of space for everyone with any budget from $25 a night to thousands. The Palms Casino and Resort currently has the most expensive room in the US. At $100,000 a night, the Damien-Hirst Empathy Suite is the definition of luxurious opulence. The second most expensive single night room is at the Mark Hotel which sits at $75,000 USD.

Consequently, a Vegas vacation can get very expensive, very quickly. But, it doesn’t have to be. Score a cheap flight, maybe get a room comped by signing up for a casino membership but the bill can still get way up there if you want the full Vegas experience. Here are some Instagram worthy Vegas entertainment that you can get completely free, no ‘if you purchase blah blah blah’, no subscription necessary, no door fees. FREE, FREE, FREE

1.) Luxor

This fantastic resort is one of my personal favorites. The Luxor is designed to bring guest back to an era of Egyptian Pharaohs with décor, grand lobbies and that Las Vegas over the top theme. The hotel’s recreation of the Great Sphinx of Giza that guards the entrance is 101 feet tall. In fact, the ancient Sphinx in Egypt is only 66. It’s a great spot to snap that selfie, before heading inside. The light beam shooting straight up into the air is the largest one on earth and can be seen from up to 100 miles away. As a result, the electric bill to keep the beam on is rumored to be $50 an hour.

2.) New York, New York

Want to find something a little more modern? New York, New York Casino and Resort is the best of the Big Apple. There’s the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, Boston pubs with Karaoke and Dueling Pianos. It’s a walk down Time Square, for a quick break from that dry desert heat.

Looking for an idealized backdrop for those Instagram-able Las Vegas vacation photos? On the other side of the intersection has the best shot, head on over to the Tropicana and catch a great view of the New York, New York Casino roller coaster. It’s a unique view of the Vegas strip and will look great in all those TikTok dance videos. Certainly, the entire weekend can be spent going on free adventures for those short on cash or if you didn’t get lucky at the tables and are running short. This is a great bucket list check point for those road trip blogs. It’s where I prefer to go to get easy access to the full New York view and fewer tourist to get in the way of my pictures.

3.) MGM Park

This is one of the newest Vegas features. The MGM Park is the entrance to a side route from the strip that leads to the Vegas Knights Hockey Stadium but the park itself has water features, sculptures and some fun street performers. MGM Park is also a great location if you want to catch a shot of any of the team.

4.) Cosmopolitan

The Cosmopolitan Hotel and Casino has one of the largest art collections on the strip and it’s on full display 24-7 for everyone to see. For instance, the biggest hanging chandelier is found here but you can walk the halls, the shopping center and the casino to see some extraordinary art pieces without those Gallery ticket prices. In particular, Paintings, photography, sculptures are everywhere. Including instillations by artists like Maya Hayuk, Marilyn Minter, Rosemarie Fiore, Alex Da Corte, Jonathan Borofsky, Nicola Lopez, Siobhan Liddell, Sylvia Hommert just to name a few. Depending on when you arrive they also have holiday decor. My favorite week in Vegas is Chinese New Year. It’s all the fireworks and over the top Vegas celebrations without the crowds or the heat.

5.) Bellagio Fountain

Of course, the Bellagio Fountain has made the list. This is by far the most well-known feature of the Las Vegas Strip. It goes without saying but the Bellagio Fountain is an absolute must and it’s also unavoidable. It’s right smack dab in the middle of the strip and if you manage not to see them go off at least once that’s impressive. It was the largest choreographed fountain in the world until a larger one was built in Dubai. Seeing it front and center is great, and it has that whole Oceans Eleven vibe going on but this photo-happy girl loves the view from the other side more.

If you walk towards the south end of the Bellagio pool and around towards the front entrance of the hotel there’s a walk way that curves around the fountain. The view from that side is incredible. You get the entire Vegas strip and best of all, the Paris Hotel and Casino’s Eiffel Tower Light Show (Also included in this list) goes off at the same time as the fountain so you get two shows for the price of one. Which is zero dollars, so it’s twice as free.

According to the website this is the show schedule for when the fountains go off but those times can change depending on the season and holiday schedules.

“The Fountains of Bellagio is a daily show in Las Vegas. The show is every 30 minutes from 3pm to 8pm Monday through Friday and every 15 minutes from 8pm to midnight. On Sundays the show starts at 11am every 30 minutes until 7pm when the show goes on every 15 minutes until midnight. On Saturdays and Holidays the shows start at noon every 30 minutes and change to every 15 minutes at from 8pm to midnight.”

6.) Bellagio Garden

The world-famous Bellagio Casino and Resort Conservatory and Botanical Garden is outstanding. Every season the designers of the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Garden and staff of 120 redecorate the entire 14,000 square foot, 50 feet high Conservatory with a new theme. The 50-foot-high ceiling with its verdigris copper framework encompassed a special presentation for each season, several holidays, including my favorite Chinese New Year. After catching a show of the infamous fountain, head towards the front entrance of the Bellagio, through the doors and into the lobby. It’s located past the check in counter and is absolutely worth a stop. It’s open 24/7 365.

7.) Bellagio Piano Man

Near the Garden, just outside, the Bellagio also has a Piano Bar. There are several performers that entertain at the Petrossian Bar and Lounge near the main entrance. Pianist include David Osborne, Marta, Norman Vito, Peter Radd, Whitney Phoenix, and Larry Walker. Take a load off and listen to some classically trained artist without having to dress up in black ties or cocktail dresses.

8.) Paris Eiffel Tower Light Show

Beginning in 2019 the Paris Hotel added a new feature to the Eiffel Tower, a complete overhaul and top to bottom light exhibit to rival that of its name sake in France. Celebrating its 20th anniversary the light show is every half hour on the hour and half hour starting at sunset and going until midnight. However, it’s hard to get a good view from the casino entrance, and across the street at the Bellagio is not good either because there are two lines of palm trees blocking the view, one on the side walk and one down the center of the road.

Just north of the Paris Hotel is the Grand Bazaar shops directly in front of Balley’s. From there, there is a pedestrian over pass the goes up and over Las Vegas Blvd. My favorite spot is right at the top of the stairs/escalators of that walkways. It’s got a perfect birds eyes view and is far enough back to get the full effect. Bonus; even if it’s packed, you can see over everyone heads.

9.) Real Flamingos

With Instagram selfies in mine, this is one of my favorite sunset pictures. The Flamingo Wildlife Habitat is home to a family of Chilean Flamingos. The 15 acre exhibit at the aptly named Flamingo Resort and Casino are located in the center of the casino floor in an outdoor garden and has a waterfall feature as well as other wildlife such as Koi fish, ducks, and swans.

Also, the windows are tinted pink and in the background in the world’s largest observation wheel, the Las Vegas High Roller. At sunset it lights up and turns, well, wouldn’t you know it, pink. It is the perfect Instagram photo opportunity; pink wheel, pink windows and pink flamingos. If you’re lucky there will be some clouds in the sky to reflect that beautiful pink sunset and give your shot that extra boost of something special.

Soon the High Roller will be the second largest once Dubai in Sadie Arabia opens of the Dubai Eye, that city is slowly doing it’s best to break all the records held by Sin City.

10.) Harrah’s Carnival Court

The Carnival Court is a giant street party right on the Strip. It has a full open air stage with live performers going regularly for anyone to walk by and enjoy the music and watch performing bar tenders as they make drinks with a flair for showmanship. There’s also an amazing dueling piano bar which host karaoke night. Get there early to get on the list, it fills up fast.

11.) Caesar’s Forum Fountain

This replica of the Triva Fountain in Rome is on full display outside the Caesar’s Forum Mall. It’s a perfect copy of the 18th century Italian masterpiece without the crowd.

12.) Caesar’s Moving Statues; Fall Of Atlantis Show

The Caesar’s Palace Casino and Resort has a pathological need to out do every Casino in the world. And they manage it. Enter a time during the height of the Roman Empire with full sized Greek statues and a true to form Gladiator Coliseum. One of Caesar’s least known features is a massive life-sized statue that moves. There’s a seven-minute show with animatronic statues that tell the story of the Fall of Atlantis, two children of Zeus both wish to rule over Atlantis and as they battle for control they end up destroying the very thing they’re fighting for. It has music, fire, lasers, steam, burst of water, and a brother sister duel that consumes a city.

Times. The show is every hour on the hour. Shows start at 10 A.M. Sunday through Thursday the last one is at 11 P.M. Friday and Saturday the last one is at Midnight.

It’s surrounded by a 50,000-gallon salt water aquarium with real tropical puffers, flounder and sharks. Daily feeding take place at 3:15 and 7:15 p.m. in front of the Cheesecake Factory in the Roman Great Hall. The Caesar’s Forum Mall has a lot of beautiful features, a fantastic Sculpture of Roman God’s and Pegasus to share on Instagram.

13.) Mirage Volcano

One of the most impressive free attractions on the Las Vegas strip is the Mirage Casino Fountain and its famous Volcano show. It’s a theatrical display for fireballs, explosions, and dancing torches that burst and entertain to a lively island drum performance. True to free Las Vegas, it’s a must see and open to the public. It goes off nightly at 8 pm and 9 pm with additional shows on weekends and holidays at 10 and 11. Check the Mirage website for additional times. High winds can cancel the show so keep that in mind.

14.) Venetian

Another detail oriented Casino is the Venetian Resort. It’s design is themed after Venice complete with Gondolas, a river walk and sky high ceilings covered in hand painted fresco’s. The Grand Colonnade Lobby is pure Italian Renaissance, and the atrium to the mall is remarkable. There’s not enough days in the year for the selfie opportunities available in this stunning resort. 

15.) Palazzo

The waterfall at the Palazzo is another recognized but seldom found Free Las Vegas feature. The Palazzo Waterfall Atrium and Garden is another fantastic display of art and ingenuity. It’s décor changes seasonally, as well as for holidays such as Easter, Christmas and that’s right, Chinese New Year. Have I convinced you yet that you should plan your trip for this weekend? The decorations by the team at the Palazzo are some of the best in the city and they go all out for every one. With giant Pigs for the Year of the pig, or massive Christmas presents this one will make each visit unique and one of a kind.

In honor of the Carnivale di Venezia, a topiary woman dressed in traditional Venetian Carnival costume was installed, it scaled 9 feet into the domed atrium. Her gown is made of ten’s of thousands of hand-made flowers that are switched out to compliment the season or holiday currently on theme at the time.


16.) Treasure Island Pirate Ships

Treasure Island Hotel and Casino may have one of the most elaborate grand entrances of the entire strip. Two full sized Pirate Ships. Several years ago, decades really, they used to do shows on the ships for free as they’re right on the strip. Unfortunately, things began to get too dangerous for performers and after several injuries they had to cancel the show but the ships and fountains are still there for guest’s enjoyment.

17.) Circus Circus

The Free Las Vegas acts at Circus Circus is probably one of the most unique shows and true to vintage Las Vegas. The acts vary, including trapeze performances, clown acts, juggling, aerial silks and basically any Circus style thing you can think of.

Shows are held at center stage of the Midway.
1:30 p.m. Monday – Thursday and 11:30 a.m. Friday – Sunday
Click here or a schedule of each shows and what kind of shows are currently going.


18.) Fremont Street

This should have it’s own category of FREE FREE FREE. Fremont Street is an experience entirely it’s own and deserves at least one evening if not a whole day and it’s my go to free Las Vegas Experience. If I only had time for one this would be it, hands down, no debate. Fremont street has it figured out.

The Free ViVa Vision Light Show is an LED Screen that spans the entire length of Fremont Street. The music themed over head light show starts at 6 P.M. and goes hourly until 2 A.M. They’re 2-3 minute long music inspired experiences, with a 3D graphic light show spanning 5 blocks. The screen is 1,375 feet long, 90 feet wide and suspended 90 feet above the original Vegas strip. It’s the largest single digital display in the world. The screen is always on 24-7 with graphics and images but the show’s themselves are different and action packed. All the sounds and lights on Fremont street are turned off and everything stops for the overhead performance.

Not to forget, this is also the largest area for street performers.

Some of the best up close magicians perform here for tips, dancers, contortionist, and characters are everywhere and it’s all available for free. People watching is the biggest activity and you’ll see things here you’ll never see anywhere else.

Near the east entrance is a 12 story slot machine that is the jump point for a zip line that goes down the entire 5 block walkways. Look up and catch sight of people flying high above before they’re gone.

Free Las Vegas wouldn’t be complete without concerts. Fremont street has three full stages at different points along the street that have different genres from rock to country, and cover bands. And you may even recognize some of the artist. The Eli Young Band performed for free during the Fourth of July celebrations, Good Charlotte has performed several times, Nelly has made a few appearances, and Vanilla Ice just to name a few. One concert series titled Muddfest featuring Puddle of Mudd, Saliva, Trapt, Saving Abel and Tantric brought in thousands of people and turned the street into a huge party. So don’t think it’s going to be unknown garage band entertainment, though who doesn’t enjoy that now and then but top chart artist have graced these stages.

19.) Downtown Watch Zone

Fremont Street dropped the mike on Free Las Vegas entertainment. They built the ultimate sports’ venue and opened it up for free. Think tailgating Vegas style. Look out World, here come’s the Downtown Watch Zone. The Downtown Vegas Event center installed a 72-foot LED Screen to play every professional football game LIVE.

In addition, you can reserve a man cave, or a table but you don’t have to in order to enjoy a game for free. Vegas has blown tailgating out of the water with its version of a watch party and invited everyone to come cheer on their team.

Downtown Las Vegas; 200 S. 3rd St. Las Vegas, Nevada 89101.

20.) Street Art

Included among the best parts of Fremont Street is the street art, take a walk around some of the outer streets and paths away from the main walkway. A little out of the way, you’ll find thousands of pieces of unique street art from locals and visitors. Some are as small as your palm and other takes up the entire side of a seven story building.

21.) Container Park

This video’s kinda fun, because I jump every time it starts.

If you walk around the 12-foot slot machine and think that’s it, there’s nothing left. You Are Wrong-keep walking. Fremont Street keeps going and it gets more and more eclectic and wonderful as you go. The bar district takes up an entire block east of the Fremont Street Experience, but on the next corner over is Container Park.

The giant 44 feet tall preying mantis at the entrance has a show of it’s own. Spouting flames and moving to music it’s a fire show that’s bound to startle-even if you’re ready for it-and entertain. It goes Thursday-Saturday starting at sun down but exact times are random, and not set to a specific time schedule but he will go off often so you won’t miss it. It’s exciting so if you’re in the area you won’t have to wait long to watch the park mascot dance and shoot flames into the air.

Container Park makes the list for Free Las Vegas because it also hosts a free concert venue, inside the park is a children’s playground and a stage. Free Shows, movies, and concerts are held here and there’s not an entrance fee.

The concert schedule varies depending on season and availability.

707 Fremont Street, Las Vegas, NV 89101

22.) Sam’s Town Mystic Fall’s Laser Show

The Mystic Fall’s Light Show at Sam’s Town, a Casino on Boulder Hwy is also known as the Sunset Stampede. Its another free Las Vegas show and well worth the trip off strip. The Casino was built in 1979 and has a garden and waterfall feature in the center of the hotel. The show has animated bears, foxes and other animals, 26 thousand lights and lasers, with a huge waterfall and fountains that are choreographed to music. It’s a 10-minute dramatic display, and has a very Disney like feel to it with it’s talking animals, and dancing water. Kids will love this one. A wolf will howl marking the beginning of the show, times are 2 p.m., 6 p.m., 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Get there early to find a good spot.

Harrah’s offers a free shuttle to get you out to this Casino so no need to get your car out of valet.


23.) Ethel M’s Chocolate Factory

The Ethel M Chocolate Factory has a free self guided tour of its facility and show’s guest how their amazing treats are made with free samples. YUM. You can also explore one of Vegas’s best cactus gardens. You’d be surprised how much life you will see, from hummingbirds and honey bees, to birds and chipmunks.

24.) Tim Arnold’s Pinball Hall of Fame

How Vegas is the PinBall Museum? The Las Vegas Pinball Collectors club has displayed the worlds largest collection of pinball machines open to the public. Machines range from the 1950s to the 1990s and all are in working condition and available to play. While there, you can explore the games for free and watch some pinball champs dominate. Depending on the machine you can play them for 25-50 cents. It is completely non-profit and all profits outside of maintenance and repairs are donated to the Salvation Army and other local charities.

Getting in and looking around is totally free. It is located off the strip but within walking distance of MGM.

1610 E. Tropicana, Las Vegas NV.
11am – 11pm, Sun-Thurs
11am-Midnight, Fri-Sat

25.) 7 Magic Mountains

7 Magic Mountains is the furthest item on the Free Las Vegas list from the strip. This art installation out in the middle of the desert is a crazy place to stop if you’re driving from California into Las Vegas. Located along I-15 near Jean Dry Lake about 10 miles south of the city. The Nevada Museum of Art and Art Production Fund had the installation built May 11, 2016, originally it was only supposed to be out in the Nevada/California desert for two years but that time line has been expanded.


From Las Vegas: Go south on I-15 take Sloan Rd (exit 25). Turn left (east) to Las Vegas Boulevard. Drive approximately 7 miles south on Las Vegas Blvd. and the artwork will appear on your left (east).

From Los Angeles: Go north on I-15 to Jean, NV (exit 12). Turn right (east) on NV-161 toward Las Vegas Blvd. Drive approximately 5 miles north on Las Vegas Blvd. and the artwork will appear on your right (east).

26.) Welcome To Las Vegas Sign

The iconic Welcome to Las Vegas Sign isn’t actually on the strip, nor is it in the city of Las Vegas. It’s about 4 miles south of city limits along Las Vegas Boulevard and is closer to the Airport. It was set at 5200 Las Vegas Boulevard in 1959 in an area named Paradise. The best time to visit and not have to wait in line is in the mornings. The earlier the better.

The front of the sign welcomes visitors and the back says goodbye with a cheerful “Drive Carefully, Come Back Soon.” After all, this wouldn’t be a Free Las Vegas list if it didn’t include one of the most iconic for those Instagram shots.

27.) Nelson’s Landing

Of the entire Free Las Vegas list, this one is the most out of the way place that made the list. It’s a small abandoned mine in the middle of the Nevada desert along the green river known as Nelson’s Ghost Town. It’s south of Hoover Dam in El Dorado Canyon. About 45 miles southeast of Las Vegas. Likewise, it’s worth a detour if you have the time to drive out there. The family bought the buildings and old mine and started collecting. You can take pictures with old cares, crashed planes, and old gas pumps in this unique ghost town. There’s even a general store if you want to pick up some snacks.

I hope you enjoyed this list and it helps you plan your visit to Las Vegas. There’s so much here to see and to do within any budget. In conclusion, having an idea of how much it’s going to cost can change a lot of details.

If you want to continue the free streak and don’t mind camping in the desert there are a lot of camping location near Vegas that you can camp for free and are absolutely stunning. Check out my 7 Tips for Free Camping to find out more.

Per usual, I took way more pictures than I could possibly post on here so if you’d like to see more I have several accounts that I’ve posted more images on.

As always, Happy Travel’s

    I was surprised that there is a circus that comes to town every 30 minutes at Circus Circus. In it acrobats, clowns and jugglers perform miniature shows every half hour. 

    Of course, if you really love the show, you can buy tickets for their full evening performance. That’s the catch. But it’s still technically free.

    • NJKuhr

      True, there is a full 2 hour long show that you can buy tickets to but you can still get the experience by seeing the smaller 10 minutes shows for free. And if you’re on a time limit the shorter shows may be the best option.

  • Kokontala

    Hi Norma, I’m pleased to meet you. I have never been to Las Vegas before, but I have heard that it’s one of the top destinations in the world, with millions of lights all concentrated in one area making it the brightest spot in the world observed from space, as you outlined. I’m really dying to travel to Las Vegas. This is fascinating.

    • NJKuhr

      I’m glad it inspired you, and I hope you get a chance to visit. It really is a unique place that had something for everyone.

  • Jenny

    I haven’t been to Vegas in a very long time and it looks like there are so many new and wonderful sites to explore.  It would be great to take the kids but travelling with the whole family can get expensive so your list of free things to do in Vegas is perfect for us.  When do you think is the best time to go to Las Vegas?  Thank you.

    • NJKuhr

      I love Chinese New Years in Febuary. Vegas pulls out all the stops, the fireworks, the decorations, the over the top themes. It’s all the best of the holidays without the heat or the crowds.

  • Christine

    One day I hope to visit Las Vegas. It looks like such an amazing place. The pyramid of Giza is a great spot for some photos! Well, they all are. I did’t know that the Trevi Fountain of Rome had a replica in Las Vegas. It looks really good!

    I’d also love to visiti the Pinball Hall of Fame and play the older pinballs. It looks like you really can’t get bored in Vegas. There’s always something to do or to see. How long should one stay in Las Vegas to see the places you showed here?

    • NJKuhr

      Absolutely, there is something for everyone. And staying is really up to you, if it’s just the strip you’re interested in I’d suggest a weekend, maybe 4 days but there’s a lot of outdoor activities in the area and some recreational places I’d visit if you have a week or two to really explore.

  • Rose

    Awesome post. Thanks for showing what to visit in Las Vegas! It took me time to read and watch but with no regrets. I appreciate your effort and love for your work.

    It is no wander why Kyle and Carson as the Super Affiliate Conference Area.

    It is really a good choice of travel destination and most suitable for the lifestyle that awaits all the Wealthy Affiliate.

    The places , the adventures, the very artistic and fun full activities to explore, people would really come back and repeat the experience with more to tag along!

    • NJKuhr

      I’m not surprised that’s where the Wealthy Affiliate conference is either. It’s a great location and really brings a great atmosphere to any convention. 

  • Parameter

    Wahoo, visiting Las Vegas has been a dream that I nurture for the past 1 year. I am a part of a community and one of our reward is a free trip to Vegas. With the way you describe the city, from the Bellagio fountain and its daily schedule to the parks, hotels, to the casinos. You make me desire to visit this city as a success affiliate grow stronger

    • NJKuhr

      I hope you get the chance to. Its a great place and has so many attractions and venues that are like nothing else out there. Maybe if you’re going with Wealthy Affiliates I’ll see you there. 

  • Aly

    Having been to Las Vegas a few times, I can definitely say that it helps to find some affordable options in between all the shows, meals, and shopping. It’s great that you’ve rounded up the fun and free options for those who didn’t fare well at gambling and need to stop spending. For someone there with a car on a road trip, do you have any hot tips about an affordable place to park the car and explore?

    • NJKuhr

      Absolutely, there’s a lot of BLM land, which stands for Bureau of Land Management. If you like to camp and don’t mind being a 30-45 minute drive from the strip I’d recommend staying at Lake Mead, Valley of Fire, or Redrocks National Conservatory.

  • Stephanie

    Woah! I always thought that the brightest state in the US was New York; for some reason the city that never sleeps has toned it down and I’m so surprised to see the extension of how much people love to visit Las Vegas. From everything that was mentioned in this article I think the only place I could recall seeing before is the Bellagio Fountain, which to this day remains as one of the most visited place in Las Vegas.

    • NJKuhr

      Oh, Vegas does not like to be outdone by the thing it does best, which is dazzle. The lights here are over the top. I hope you get a chance to see the other attractions, they’re a lot of fun.

  • MIchel

    It’s great to see that there are some free things to do in Las Vegas. Just looking at the beautiful hotels is something. I have never even thought about going to Las Vegas, but now seeing how pretty it is, you have whet my appetite.

    I always just thought of Las Vegas as a gambling place with lots of lights but didn’t realize there were also sites of interest to see. I also like the idea of seeing street performers which is something different.

    Love the Eifel tower that they have added to the Paris Casino. That must attract quite a few visitors.

    • NJKuhr

      I’m glad I can change your mind about this place, it’s known for it’s gambling but one thing Vegas knows how to do is entertain. It’s all about showmanship and dazzle. A lot of people who come to Vegas never gamble, they come for the shows and the resorts. It’s a very unique city and something to consider when you start planning your next trip.

  • Boi


    People like me who have not been to Las Vegas yet, often believe that everything there is quiet pricey. By virtue of the fact that it is one of the top destinations in the world, we are often led to believe that. Not in my wildest dreams did I think anything may be free there. There are just so many wonderful and beautiful things there that are free. I would really love to see the Mirage Casino Fountain. Thank you for your article. I look forward to visiting Las Vegas one day

    • NJKuhr

      I hope you get a chance to see it too. It was one of the reasons I wrote the article was to show people how great this place could be without having to spend a ridiculous amount of money. Just walking the strip can take two days to see everything and it doesn’t cost a thing.

  • Julai

    My family is from Spain and dreaming of going to the US one day for vacation and Vegas is definitely one of the places that we want to see. And my husband has already said that we will definitely try to play in the casino just to experience how it is, if not then we haven’t been to vegas according to him.:) Hopefully, it will be sooner, once kids are bigger.

    • NJKuhr

      I hope you do, it’s a unique city. If you get a chance to come I’d recommend spending some time in Vegas and then seeing southern Utah while you’re nearby. The 5 national parks are only a 2-3 hour drive northeast from Vegas and will change your life. and the Grand Canyon is about 4 hours directly east.

  • Aparna

    What a wonderful article! You can so be a seller for LA vacations. Reading about all the free attractions has increased my desire to somehow get to the fabled city. 

    And a great way to get there is through the Super Affiliate system offered by Wealthy Affiliate. Kyle, the owner of Wealthy Affiliate promises you a free vacation at LA if you can get 300 referrals in a year. And that shall be my aim going ahead. 

    Thank you for this incredible article.



    • NJKuhr

      I’d love to attend the WA convention in Vegas too, and get to meet everyone in the community that has help build up my site. I’m working hard towards that goal too.

  • Steve

    Hi Jean, you’ve made me google pictures of Las Vegas at night from space!! Looks dashing. No wonder all manner of conventions are held there. Seems there’s something for everyone from the odd drifter to corporate titans.

    I’d bet children would never forget a sight of the amazing Bellagio Fountain. Including all the lights display everywhere.

    Definitely worth a trip at least once in a lifetime.

    • NJKuhr

      I did too. It’s amazing how it looks and there’s a lot for kids to do here, the pirate ships at treasure island were my nieces favorites and little ones love the castle at Excalibur.

    Some very interesting facts that you mention about Las Vegas, like the amount of neon lighting and the high cost of hotels rooms. So it is indeed great to find that there are certain things one can do for free. And you have given us a great choice and so many that look like an absolute must to visit. Thanks for the tip on Freemont Street Experience and that will be my first stop.

    What would you recommend to be the minimum time spent in Las Vegas to see as much as possible?

    • NJKuhr

      If you only have one day to spend in Vegas, I’d drive the las Vegas strip from Mandalay Bay to the stratosphere, and then I’d park at Fremont street and say there. If you have a bit more time and don’t mind a four mile walk, I’d walk the strip. Almost everything worth seeing is outside the casino’s not in them. You can start on the southern end, walk for a few hours and end up at the Stratosphere and you will have seen pretty much everything the strip has to offer. Then I’d go and spend a few hours experience Fremont street at it’s full glory. 

  • Bogadi

    I found this very interesting. It is amazing that one can access this beautiful places for free. I usually say that sometimes having a good time is not about having or not having enough money, but it is about taking time to plan and being Intentional about happiness. My wish is for Las Vegas to be just around the corner.

    • NJKuhr

      I hope you get the chance to see it. Its something else and there’s so much to see, Just trying to get to all the free things could take up all your time. I’ve spent a whole weekend there and didn’t spend a dime on anything more than food and drinks. 

  • Alketa

    Hello Norma, I enjoyed so much your article about free destinations to visit in Las Vegas. I have never been there, but reading your article and watch these pieces of videos, it seems to me to be there. Most of us think that it is a city of casinos, but it is more than that. Inside this city seems to be a piece of the world, and everyone can find his interest in visiting Las Vegas. I like the fact that it offers prices and opportunities for every budget from the most affordable up to the luxury ones. The destinations that you listed here offer cultural, recreation, fun, and pleasure. 

    Thank you for sharing this. 


    • NJKuhr

      It really does, there’s circus themed stays, kids love the castles and pirates ships, there’s high class luxury and low cost fun. It has something for everyone. Different atmosphere’s, different entertainment. And you can pick and choose what works for you and what you want to spend your time and money doing.

  • pitin

    I can’t believe there are a lot of free attractions in Las Vegas! It looks like one of the best places to travel – warm, inviting and there are lots of things to see and do. Thank you for this comprehensive list! We were supposed to visit last year but Covid19 happened. Looking forward to experiencing them all once travel bans are lifted due to this pandemic!

    • NJKuhr

      Absolutely, there’s a lot there and it can get overwhelming. I have friends who have been to Vegas several times and didn’t even know about half of the things I listed.

  • Lisa

    I used to live in Las Vegas but I was always too busy with Survival Needs to visit any of the attractions. 

    I really appreciate that you list the free things to do there, and that NONE of them involve gambling. I only live in the next state now, and I could go visit Las Vegas any time I like. I’m not much of a gambler (I don’t enjoy it at all) so if I were to go there I would need a guide like this to give me things to do while my friends and family hit the casinos. 

    Some of the things you list are really only interesting backgrounds for selfies, but others are really cool entertainment that I never knew about. I printed out this article to keep for the next time somebody says “Let’s drive down to Las Vegas for the weekend” so that I don’t have to wonder “what for?” 

    Thanks for a bunch of good information!

    • NJKuhr

      I love hearing this. I lived there too, and it wasn’t until the last year I was there that I decided I should give the strip a second chance, and go see if there was more to it than Gambling. I found a lot. Way more than I had known about.

  • Calvin

    Never been to Los Vegas but I know i will been visiting there one day. I don’t know if I’ll have enough time to visit everything on this article but my top three shots i want to visit is the 7 Magic Mountains, Welcome to Las Vegas sign, and the Ceasar’s moving status. I have to stay in the Luxor because its the first step to Africa.

  • Lily

    I remember my trip to Las Vegas in 1991, back in the dark ages. It was so much fun and there weren’t all the attractions that there are now. I remember they were just starting to build the Luxor. I stayed at the Mirage and it was awesome. I loved the magic show with Sigfried and Roy and their amazing white tigers. I know a lot has changed since then but that’s great as there is so much more to see. Wow, 24 free things to do and see. This is a great article, thanks.

    • NJKuhr

      I went to the Sigfried and Roy show when I was young, my parents took me to it but Vegas has definitely changed a lot since then. Things have grown, there’s new stuff every year and even the attractions that have always been there are fun to see again. 

  • AL. S.

    Having grown up in Las Vegas I can tell you there is loads to do in Las Vegas that will not cost you a thing. The ones you listed are really just a tiny fraction but also some of the most popular. I always loved going to the Caesar Palace forum shops, there are so many really cool stores there. Other things you mentioned are things that I didn’t know about but would definitely like to check out the next time I go to Vegas to visit family. Specifically, the Container Park and Nelson’s landing look particularly interesting.

    • NJKuhr

      Agreed, i could make a list of free things to do for each one of the casino’s and Fremont street needs to have an article all for itself. Yes, I’m so happy I was able to surprise someone who lived there. Container park is kind of new so that might be why.

  • Andy

    Hi and what fun to read about all these free attractions in Vegas. The last time I was there was actually 17 years almost to the day and some of the items on your list are new to me. Such a shame that the daily pirate show at Treasure Island is no more. Every year I was going to Vegas I would always stop by and watch the pirate show. I also remember when they opened up the Freemont show as a way to revitalize that part of town that had really gone down market. Actually the first years I went to Vegas one of my favorite things was to go and visit the mom-and-pop stores that would sell all these really fun cheap and cheerful Vegas paraphernalia. I remember you could also buy some excellent turquoise jewelry at really low prices. Sadly that was gone the last years I was there. I’m sure I would recognize much of it, but as I say I think some of my favorite elements are no more. Best regards, Andy

    • NJKuhr

      Ya, I was really sad when they pirate ship show was canceled. Fremont street has really upped it’s game, it’s a totally different place now and worth a new visit. There are still some pretty neat discount stores but I don’t think they’re on the strip. 

  • Kwidzin

    Thanks for sharing this very informative article. Las Vegas is somewhere that I’ve oly ever really associated with Gambling, which I don’t do. So Its never been a place that I ever planned to go. But from reading this I can see that there are actually loads of other interesting places around there worth visiting. So who knows? I may end up visiting the place yet.

    • NJKuhr

      There is. There’s a lot more there than gambling. I lived there for several years and my family would come visit, my mom might play a table here or there but we always had so much stuff we wanted to do that even if we wanted to gamble we didn’t have time.

  • Carolyn

    Hi Norma Jean, and thanks for such a comprehensive post about Las Vegas. The pictures are fantastic, and make me want to travel there. It seems like taking a trip around the world to be able to see all the different sights that are there. The airfare is fantastic, and even some hotel accommodations are as well. but $75,000 for a single night in a room is unheard of!! You could have an experience of a lifetime seeing all the sights, and then want to return again, – as long as you did not spend all your $$ in the casinos!! Lol. Thanks again for the post!

  • Sharon

    Las Vegas is a fun place to visit, and I am glad to found these free things to do. Taking a walking tour to see these unique hotels and Casino is free. I watched the video of the Bellagio Fountain, and that was a treat. The next time I visit Las Vegas, I plan to see these extraordinary places. Which one is your favorite? Reading your blog was fun.

    • NJKuhr

      Thank you. My favorite is Fremont Street. I could visit Vegas and only go to Fremont street and be totally fine with that. It’s the best part.

  • Thomas Risley

    Let me start off by saying that the name of your site is perfect! The content for this topic is rich and I can tell that you put a lot of effort into getting all of these free locations and ranking them. I like the idea of traveling, and if I ever go to Vegas I’ll definitely use this as a reference. 

    With all the good being said, I have some opinions about the site. I would recommend changing the color of the text in the main banner you have as the green on green, and black text doesn’t stand out much on its own. Presentation is key for these sites, as even if your content is good, the way the banner looks with the text seems not the most professional. I have to work on this as well, so that’s why I’m suggesting you make it change to better suit your website. 

    Overall, I really liked the idea of free places to visit (as people aren’t trying to spend too much money, especially in Vegas) and I’m sure many others do as well. Keep up the good work, and good luck with future articles!

    • NJKuhr

      Thanks. I’m glad you liked the article. I’ve been changing the text and background colors and just haven’t found one I like. I’ll keep working on it though. I get a little annoyed because I love the way picture behind the title of the page and the quote but the theme I use doesn’t let me change the color of the text on the quote by itself. When I’ve changed the quote color it also changes the color of the text in my articles so i’m trying to find something that works for both.

  • Crypto Dave

    What a great post! I have always wanted to go to Las Vegas, I am in Australia, so it will be a BIG trip. I have not done a lot of research on it before so didn’t really know what options I would have and money is always an issue. You have provided some great information here for someone on a budget, well done

    It certainly is a lot different to Australia I do really hope to get there one day soon.

  • Leah

    So many great free things to do in Vegas! It’s been several years since I’ve been to Las Vegas, but you covered all my favorite hotels to explore. The Bellagio Garden is stunning and my absolute favorite free place to visit. The Venetian has so many beautiful details and is magical to stroll watch the gondolas. I never realized there are free shows of Circus Circus. Great tip! 

    • NJKuhr

      Thanks. Vegas is just one of those places i don’t think you could every know everything that’s available and it always changes. 

  • Lynn

    I have never been to Las Vegas, but after reading your article, I am much more inclined to want to go. I could have fun just doing only free stuff. A local airline generally offers cheap tickets to Las Vegas and my husband and I have talked about going before. If we do, I am definitely revisiting your site to keep all these attractions in mind. 

    I really enjoyed reading about your trip to Las Vegas and I had no idea there were so many free things to do. Thanks for sharing them with us.


  • Antarctic Adventures

    How funny that I run into your article when my cousin is going to Las Vegas this very week to get married! He was worried about the expense and spending so much money. I have shared this article with him so he knows there are many free things he can do while there! Thank you!

    • NJKuhr

      Aww, thank you for sharing. I hope he has a great time. My sister was married in Vegas and it was really beautiful. 

  • terryiching

    Hey Norma:
    Dashboard Destinations definitely got my attention. I mean DD provides ALL the info for staying and partying in Las Vegas. Love the fact you put in the videos, gave me a chance to check out some amenities and attractions. And thanks for the trivia on the most expensive room in Las Vegas. $100k! I mean, even if I was hanging with Jeff Bezos or Steve Wynn, I’m gonna find it hard to throw down a cool $100k to rest my head on a pillow for one night. Besides, when I’m in Vegas, sleeping in not really a priority.
    But seriously, this is a very informative website I am going to share DashBoard Destinations with my friends and family. I also wanted to ask about the trips to James Bond Island. As a kid, The Man with the Golden Gun was my favorite movie and to get a chance to visit the place where Brett Ekland and Maud Adams ran along the beach, would be like dying and going to heaven. So, what’s it like at James Bond Island. Anyway, your DashBoard Destinations really appeals to me and I’ll be in real touch soon.

    • NJKuhr

      Thank you. I’m glad you like it and love that you’re sharing it. James Bond island is very small, since you’re such a big bond fan I’d recommend going but it’s a small crescent moon beach with this long Pilar rock out in the water. Other than getting a picture with it and watching the waves there really isn’t anything else to do. 

  • Devon Picano

    I have never been to Las Vegas before and never really thought of it as a dream location however, your article has made me a lot more interested in the idea of booking a trip there. I am most excited about the street art that you wrote of, I would really like the opportunity to see that one day!

    • NJKuhr

      the local art community has really stepped up its game in the last several  years. Downtown Vegas is beautiful. 

  • Sunquan

    Your site is a Godsend for sure as we are running out of things to see or do in Vegas now. At some point we felt like Vegas is no longer as fun. I will definitely check out some of the things you mentioned in your article next time I visit Vegas. Stay safe and have fun! Thank you very much! 

    – Sunquan 

    • NJKuhr

      I felt like that too. I was over it but then I decided to start looking for things I hadn’t seen before. There’s a whole other side to it. 

  • Megan

    Wow! What a list of destinations! I have yet to go to Las Vegas, but I really hope to soon. I will definitely be looking into these attractions. The Bellagio Fountain looks amazing! Sigh, I love to travel and this site makes me want to get in my car and go!  

  • Birdiedropper7

    Cool article! I like the videos that you added to each as well. How many times have you been to Vegas? I’ve only driven through and had a layover at the airport, never been to the strip though, but it seems this a good list of free things to do while there. I think my favorite one that you have shown is the free Circus Circus shows. The fact that you can actually get some entertainment of a show for free is great!

    • NJKuhr

      I actually lived there for several years and this was my farewell article I felt I should do before I moved away. I’m glad you like it, if you ever get back there now you’ll have an idea of what to do and where to go.

  • Mike

    Hello there! Oh wow this is a great resource. I also don’t remember when I last went to Las Vegas, it has probably been well over 10 years (when I was still young). I never would have guessed that there would be free attractions to go to. I had always been under the impression that nothing was free in Vegas. Glad to have run into this post though. Now I know what things I can do on my next trip to Vegas. Thanks for this.

    • NJKuhr

      I’m glad I could show you another side to the city. It’s done a lot to make things more travel friendly for people who don’t gamble. There’s so much to do there now besides the casinos.

  • James

    Hi, thanks for all the info on Vegas, I have been a couple of times many years ago and would like to go back. I can see from your post that things have changed and one place I didn’t visit was Fremont Street, I’d like to go there. I also like how you included places off the strip. I’ll come back to your post if I manage to visit again. Thanks

    • NJKuhr

      Glad I could help. Fremont Street has been my favorite part of Vegas since my first trip. It’s such a throwback to vintage vegas but with so much fun and exciting things to do.

  • Sheen


    I enjoy your articles so much! Yay, a chance to travel around the world.

    I have always wanted to go to Las Vegas.  I have read that it is very expensive and certainly is portrayed as such in the movies.

    What a great idea to talk about free things to do in Vegas! Finding places for selfie memories. I enjoyed clicking on the YouTube clips to get an idea.

    Thank you for the escape and a chance to holiday in Las Vegas.  What a fabulously vibrant and interesting place to visit.

    Best wishes


    • NJKuhr

      It does have the image of something that’s only attainable to the wealthy but the city has done a lot to be inclusive of people will all budgets. It’s fun and exciting and you can get the full Vegas experience without putting yourself in debt to do it. I’m hope you get a chance to see it. 

  • Stratos K

    Aaah Vegas. This is certainly one of the destinations I would love to go at some point in my life. I was always fan of Egyptian pyramids and the Luxor for me is THE destination to be if I ever have the chance to go there. It is such an amazing experience but I guess a costly one also.

    • NJKuhr

      It can be costly if you want it to be but it doesn’t have to be. There are a lot of iconic Vegas experiences you can have without burning through a whole paycheck to make it happen.

  • Sariyah

    Wow thanks for this article and thanks for proving fun doesn’t always have to be expensive, you can have a wonderful time out without spending a dime!

    These are beautiful places to spend the outing. I really want to visit New York so I think I should save this post, pretty useful! And I learnt something new which is the amount of lights in New York. I knew nyc was bright however I wasn’t aware it was that lit, definitely want to go there even more!

    • NJKuhr

      It is a fun one to walk around and see all the details put into that place. There’s a lot of little things that aren’t noticed by a lot of people but every inch of that casino was planned out. 

  • Vanabell

    Wow! Great job! There is hardly anywhere I can think of that you haven’t mentioned!. I have been to a few of these places, but trust me, I got them all on my bucket list, hopefully someday. You know they can be quite expensive! If you want a family-time fun or just take the kids out, the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. at Treasure Island! Thank me later. 

    • NJKuhr

      I haven’t heard about that one yet, I’ll look into it. Is it a permanent feature? I didn’t include a few things simply because they might not be there when people visit. 

  • Sammy Allen

    This was great. I’m moving to Henderson, NV, very soon.  I had no idea there were so many cool things to do in Vegas. And Henderson is very close to Vegas. So that’s exciting. Not only are there fantastic things to do with all the casinos and resorts but there are also some great outdoor activities.

    Thanks for all this information. I also heard the regulations are lifting all over the place, especially if you are vaccinated.

    To narrow it down, what would you say the top 5 things would be? 

    Appreciate all the great data.



    • NJKuhr

      Fremont street is my favorite location, nelson’s landing as well. If you like the outdoors Valley of Fire is amazing but I would only go out there during the winter months. It can get close to 120 degrees out there and there’s no water or shelter from the heat. I’d also check out red rocks and paddle boarding the river south of the dam. and death valley is always great.

  • Stella

    I’ve never been to Las Vegas, but you’ve done a good job of getting me interested in these amazing attractions that wouldn’t cost a bundle. I particularly like that there are so many things to see outside and not just in casinos. I’m not much interested in the gambling aspect, but I would love to see the street art, performers, and the circus acts. It sounds like a nice way to spend a couple of days.

    • NJKuhr

      It surprised me too. I’d always got the gambling image of Vegas but there’s a lot more to that city. There’s so much to do for people who don’t gamble or drink that may be worth checking out.

  • Ginny1977

    I really like your site its very detailed and looks good with the pictures as well i enjoyed reading about the different places you can go as myself one day would like to travel around the world i think other readers would also like your content its a thumbs up from me.

    • NJKuhr

      Thank you. I started this because there was a lot of information I found out after I had already booked a trip that I wish I’d known before. Things that would have made a difference and prevented me from missing out.

  • Mike

    I have a strong desire to visit Las Vegas and I hope that when I can I will. Thanks for providing a list of a few of the many attractions that Las Vegas offers.

    Watching the videos only made me feel that I must do this when possible. They were very exciting for me to see.

    Do you have an opinion as to the best time of the year to visit?

    • NJKuhr

      June through August is peak tourist season, so theirs a ton of people and the temperatures are miserable. It regularly reaches 115-120 F. My favorite weekend is actually Chinese new years. They have fireworks show, all the casinos decorate, there’s great deals, It’s like fourth of july weekend without the overcrowding and heat. 

  • Amzy Khan

    Hi Norma!

    I have never been to Las Vegas, but I really would like to go one day. After this pandemic when restrictions have lifted and we are allowed to travel again, I might go to Las Vegas. I will be able to use your article as a tour guide to find Vegas entertainment to experience and enjoy ourselves. 

    Thank you so much for sharing this article with us and I wish you all the best!


  • It's Miss Tee

    I lived and worked in Las Vegas from August 2006 for May 2009. Some of the sites I remember, while others weren’t complete when I moved away. How do you like the Cosmopolitan, by the way? It wasn’t finished when I left the city. So, I never got a chance to see it. I always loved watching the Bellagio Fountain; it never got old.I’ve been to the Bellagio many times, however, I barely remember the Botanical Garden. The Eiffel Tower light show at the Paris Hotel is super pretty. Now, that I’m a New York resident, The New York, New York Hotel makes me giggle! There’s nothing “New York” about it!I Did you get the chance to see any shows? hope you enjoyed your time in Sin City! I still have a friend there, so I may visit soon!

    • NJKuhr

      If you love artwork, and wandering around galleries the Cosmo is amazing. The botanical garden is one of my favorites, the amount of detail they put into that project every season is amazing. I agree, the new York new York doesn’t compare to the real thing but the big apple is a place you couldn’t replicate even with unlimited funds. I enjoyed it, let me know when you go back if there’s something I missed.

  • Timo

    Hello NJ,
    I just relocated from California to Virginia, and my vacationing in Las Vegas and Laughlin brought back memories through your site. I never spend time in Henderson but I will next time I am back West. The scenery on your page is great by the way. I will visit it when I am looking to vacation again.

  • rjkennedy

    When I saw this post about Las Vegas, it’s exciting for me to read about all the free things a person can do in Vegas. They’re are many travel destinations out here offered, but I think Vegas tops the list. I’ve never been to Reno, but I hear it’s just as exciting as Las Vegas. I love gambling, and I know (since the pandemic is ending) I’ll be out there once again. But I won’t be staying in those rooms in Vegas at $100,000 per night. (A little too rich for my blood)lol.

    • NJKuhr

      Reno’s fun, not quite the over-the-top but it’s fun and its similar enough to get rid of the itch. I couldn’t bring myself to spend 100K on one night either even if i could afford it.

  • Mohamed

    Very neat website. I did not there is a place called Luxor in Las Vegas.  I only knew there was Luxor in Egypt. It seems like Luxor place in Las Vegas is a good destination. I never been to Las Vegas but I heard it is a nice place to visit. My favourite destination is New York, Rio De Janeiro, Dubai, Amsterdam, Hong Kong and San Francisco.

    • NJKuhr

      Those are amazing cities, with that kind of travel experience Vegas should make the list. The luxor is neat, I love how detailed the designs are. They go all out.

  • Paolo

    Photographing the Bellagio Fountain is difficult. At least, getting a decent picture of it. I have heard many complaining they don{t seem to be able to get the exact amount of light. So, after hearing so many stories, I think there may be something technical about it. It would be good to try photographing it myself!

    • NJKuhr

      It is difficult, and finding a good place where there aren’t a lot of people blocking the images or getting in the way and bumping the camera is even harder. With patience and a willingness to stand there all day to get it, eventually you can get the shot. 

  • CherrieAlesia

    another beautiful site! I was just visiting your site about Utah. My husband and I travel to Vegas and we love the Luxor hotel. We enjoyed taking the escalator and/or the elevator in that hotel because it moved up the pyramid by sliding “over and up.” Yes, your site brings back very good memories! Thank you for the trip down memory lane. CherrieAlesia

    • NJKuhr

      Glad I could help. I should have mentioned the elevator. Thanks for reminding me. That should be in there. Hopefully, the next time you’re in the area you’ll get a chance to head north and see Utah. It’s a beautiful state. 

  • Nyny J


    I love your site! It is lovely to know there are things to do in Las Vegas for free. There are many amazing things to see, from the Bellagio Fountains to its gardens and Ceasars Fountain to its moving statues show.

    I have never been to Las Vegas, and although I have heard it is one of the best places to visit, I always related it to gambling more than anything. It sounds like it’s a Disney World for adults, and I love Disney World. Your site depicts the great attractions there and the remarkable ways I can spend my time there. If I doubted I would ever visit, you have indeed convinced me. I am now looking forward to it.

    I will be visiting your site often to learn more when I have the first opportunity. Thank you for sharing.

    Best wishes, Nyny

    • NJKuhr

      Please do, Vegas has a lot more to offer than gambling and I wanted to show a funner more adventurous side to the city that a lot of people don’t know about.

  • Kokontala

    Greetings! I went through your article and believe me I found it very interesting. I never realized that there are so many interesting places in Las Vegas, and as I look at the pictures provided I feel even more curious. But please tell the history of this place- Nelson’s landing. What actually happened to that plane? Thanks anyway for sharing such an informative article with us.

    • NJKuhr

      Thanks for the suggestion, i should add more history into that place, I don’t know what’s the story about the plan. 

  • Cogito

    Hi Norma. Thank you for another great article. We are slowly getting back to normal, and summer is here so its finally time to plan holidays. Vegas is always good idea, but couldn’t agree more that its not cheap place. Im surprised that you were able to find so many interesting, free places to visit. Looking forward to see them all !

    • NJKuhr

      I love finding interesting things to see and do in cities that a lot of people don’t know about and then sharing them will my readers. Thanks you.

  • Daniella

    I’ve been to Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey, and Washington, but never to Las Vegas. I will put this destination on my bucket list for the next time I travel. How long do you think I should stay to see all of Las Vegas? Is one week enough, or I need more time? Oh, I almost forgot, will all the attraction be open in December? I am always traveling in Christmas:)

    Thanks a lot!

    • NJKuhr

      yes, these are all open all year round, so you’ll be able to get the same experience in December without the overwhelming heat and crowds. December weather is really comfortable in Nevada. One week is plenty, any more than that is exhausting and tends to be a bit much. If you want to take more than a week, you could even make a road trip out of it and do a loop from Vegas, to the grand canyon up to lake Powell and around hitting all the parks on the way back to Vegas. I’d start in vegas than visit hoover dam, and the Grand Canyon, then head over to the four corners area and see monument valley, on the way to lake Powell and then spend some time at the 5 national parks in southern Utah, Zions, Bryce, Canyonlands, Arches, and Capital reef when you loop back. Bryce is my personal favorite. It’ll will give you a few days in Vegas with a break from the craziness and then another stop in Vegas to hit everything you didn’t get to see the first few days.
