The Best Deals In Las Vegas Are Free
It can be overwhelming walking down Las Vegas strip as the scope of things to do can beg the question: what can I do first? Obviously, you could try wandering into every establishment but you would probably need a year to cover everything! Here are some of the most famous landmarks to visit first during your stay.
See the Bellagio Fountains
These beautiful jets of water are situated in front of the Grand Bellagio Hotel and Casino and can be viewed every half hour. The show is completely controlled by computer and regularly attracts visitors at night. The illuminated water jets move in a choreographed pattern along with music and reach heights of 100 meters. This Las Vegas landmark is one of the most beautiful on the strip.
Visit the Paris Las Vegas Casino
This casino is notable for its replica of the Eiffel Tower on its exterior. The whole building is designed to replicate Parisian streets and is illuminated in golden lights at night. Other replicas include the Champs Elysees as well as one of the River Seine. Take a trip inside this Las Vegas landmark and maybe win some cash at one of several gaming tables or the slots.
Go to the Top of The Stratosphere Hotel and Casino
This one cannot be missed as it literally stands at roughly 100 stories high and has observation decks on which you tower above the rest of Vegas and take in the lights. It is also part of a hotel complex complete with its own casino so there is no short of things to see and do at this landmark. There is even a the Top of the World restaurant at the top where you can witness the views as well as some rollercoasters and rides including Big Shot, which is a vertical drop ride.
On top of these landmarks, you may want to pay a visit to Caesar’s Palace, the Fremont Street Experience which is a light show on the ceiling of a downtown mall, and Luxor which is the pyramid on the Strip with a replica of King Tutankhamen’s tomb situated in front.
Sightseeing in Las Vegas
Visiting Las Vegas can be a bit of a sensory overload; being presented with so much to do, see, and experience can be almost daunting. The best way to approach a visit to the city is to try and experience as many varied attractions as possible. While the obvious attractions are the numerous casinos of the city, they are by no means the be all and end all of visiting Vegas. Whether you’re into sports, theatre, gambling, or even magic, Vegas has something for you.
Downtown Las Vegas
While Las Vegas does have many casinos, there are many other attractions that go with the city’s reputation as the playground of the rich and famous. Even then, visiting a casino doesn’t necessarily mean gambling. There are some of the greatest shows, plays, and cabaret performances in the world located in the casinos, as well as some of the finest restaurants, cocktail bars and hotels. Enjoy comedy at the world-renowned Laugh Factory, watch magic from David Copperfield or Penn and Teller, or watch stunning performances by everyone from the Blue Man group to Barbara Streisand. If theatre’s more your thing, then you can catch some of the most impressive plays and musicals around, including the world-famous production of Phantom of the Opera. Consider staying in a hotel in downtown las vegas.
Other Attractions in Las Vegas
Sports fans won’t be disappointed by a trip to Vegas, as there are many different sports events held in the city. Particularly popular is the Las Vegas 51s Baseball, held at the Cashman Center. There are also many high profile boxing matches held in the city, which are not to be missed for fans of the sport. Vegas is also home to fantastic golf courses, luxury spa retreats, theme parks, and some of the best shopping and nightlife experiences in the world. Whether you want to try your luck in a casino, experience once in a lifetime performances, or just spend some time living the high life, visiting Las Vegas will be a memorable and enjoyable experience.
Take a Grand Canyon Tour
The Grand Canyon, Arizona is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World due to its paint box of colors and myriad of shapes and curves carved out by years of erosion. Also known as one of the most picturesque landmarks in the world, the canyon can also be seen from many different viewpoints. Here are some of the different tours offered including some for the more adventurous of tourists!
Risk-free Vegas Attractions and Family Activity
There is a lot more to Las Vegas than just gambling and casinos. In fact, there are a number of attractions located far away from the Vegas strip, so you can feel free to bring your entire family on a vacation to this popular tourist spot.
Las Vegas Motor Speedway Racing
Those who may have dreamed of driving a race car can get behind the wheel of one here in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. An experienced trainer will take you a full five laps around a real racetrack. You can also ride shotgun in a Ferrari F430 race car while a professional driver makes hot laps around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Tours take between 2.5 to 4 hours to complete, and should be scheduled in advance.
Pinball Hall of Fame
Play to your heart’s delight at the Pinball Hall of Fame. Open from 11 am to 11 pm daily, this facility allows you to play a variety of vintage pinball machines while classic rock music plays in the background. There are also classic arcade games that date as far back as the 1940s. In all, over 200 machines are available, and each one requires only one quarter. Admission is free, with a large percentage of the profits from these games going to the local Salvation Army.
Clark County Wetlands Park
Located in the desert area immediately outside Las Vegas, Clark County Wetlands Park is full of trails that will allow you to view plenty of wildlife. There are also special viewing areas set up inside the park that are not part of the trail system. Visitors can also enjoy bicycling or horseback riding on some of the trails. Several ponds located throughout the park are ideal for fishing. Numerous picnic pavilions are provided here, making it a nice location to enjoy a quiet lunch.
Why worry about losing money in Las Vegas casinos when you can take in other risk-free attractions? Since these attractions are often overlooked by other tourists, you can take advantage of this fact and be able to enjoy the best of Las Vegas without having to deal with crowds.
Go to Las Vegas’ Most Famous Casinos
Let’s face it: you can’t go to Vegas unless you’re willing to dip into your pockets! Casinos are in abundance and are fully designed to encourage those who enjoy taking a bit of a risk. These casinos are also much larger and more elaborately designed than the ones you’re used to back home.
They also attract many visitors from all over the world so let’s take a look at some of the most famous casinos in Vegas…

Its golden lights and design to replicate Parisian streets will make you feel like you have stepped out of Vegas for the evening. With over 100 gaming tables, there is plenty of opportunities to win or lose!
New York New York
The clue is in the name: this architectural marvel is designed to replicate the streets and buildings of New York. New York New York Hotel and Casino is famed for its smaller replicas of the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty, this casino is world renowned for its style and size.
