Cheap Things to do in Vegas

1. Watch the Bellagio Fountains

The Bellagio Fountains top my list because they are just awesome and one of my favorite cheap things to do in Vegas.

I love watching the water jets perform their choreographed dance!  And apparently so does everyone else as every time we have come to watch the show it is super crowded.

That’s OK, it’s so worth it.

Grab your spot and enjoy the magic.  The show takes place right on the Las Vegas strip in front of the Bellagio Hotel.

The Bellagio Fountain times remain constant, coming on every 30 minutes from 3-8 pm Monday-Friday, and then every 15 minutes from 8 pm-midnight.

On Saturdays, the show starts at noon, and then on Sunday, the fountains come alive beginning at 11 am and then every 30 minutes until 7 pm when it changes to every 15 minutes.

For more information, visit the Bellagio website.

If you’re looking for a place to stay while in Vegas, then the Bellagio tops our list of the best hotels in Vegas for couples.

2. View Garage Art

Yes, you read that correctly, garage art.

The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas has allowed artists to use the walls of their parking garage as a canvas.

The series of murals by graffiti artist will make you realize that the Cosmopolitan isn’t just an ordinary Vegas hotel.

3.  See the Blarney Stone

You don’t have to travel to Ireland to see the Blarney Stone.  Nope!  It is one of the free things to do in Vegas!

Instead, head to the D hotel in downtown Las Vegas to see this piece of the famous castle. Located on the second floor on a table between the bar and a slot machine, you will find the piece of the stone.  The sign in front of it does ask that you rub the stone instead of kiss it though.  LOL!

Maybe it will bring you some Irish luck!

4.  Listen to Some Dueling Pianos

If you’ve never seen a dueling piano show, then this is your chance.

The Piano Bar at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino has just that.  The interactive piano show is really fun to experience as it is two twins competing for your attention.

The show takes place nightly at 9:00 pm.

5.  Watch a Volcano Explode at the Mirage

Did you ever think you could stand on the Las Vegas Strip and watch a volcano explode?  Well, you can when you add it to your list of cheap things to do in Las Vegas.

Well, you can, right in front of the Mirage Hotel!

The lagoon puts on quite a show with fire shooting out of the lagoon and the volcano.

The show takes place daily at 7 and 8:00 pm, and then they add a 9:00 pm eruption on Friday and Saturday nights. 

6.  Spend Some Time with Mimes

On the “streets” of the Paris Hotel and Casino, you will find several mimes just waiting to entertain you.  I know it’s kinda silly, but they are actually really good and funny.  They did remind me of some of the street performers that we saw on our trip to Paris.

7.  Visit Las Vegas Park

Located between the New York, New York, and the Monte Carlo Hotels, the Las Vegas Park is a great place to relax and people watch.  We enjoyed grabbing a cold drink or a cup of coffee and sitting in this area to just relax after a long day on the Las Vegas strip.  Making this one of the many cheap things to do in Vegas.

Check out the 40-foot tall Bliss Dance sculpture before catching one of the many free events in the park.  Visit their page for more information.

8.  Enjoy the Freemont Street Experience

If you’re asking yourself is Las Vegas expensive?

You won’t think so if you are in the center of downtown Las Vegas, where you will find Freemont Street, a canopy-covered car-free area that will delight your senses.

The Freemont Street Experience is awesome.  You see, the canopy that hangs over the street comes alive with over two million lights and a state of the art sound system entertaining guests from around the world.

Walking around Freemont Street, you will notice it’s surrounded by “old Vegas” casinos.  There are usually street performers and live music going on as well.  Definitely one of the free things to do in Vegas that are quirky and fun!

9.  Visit the Marjorie Barrick Museum

You’re probably wondering why I would be sending you to a college campus while you’re on vacation?!

Well, that’s because the Marjorie Barrick Museum is located on UNLV’s campus.

Don’t worry though, it’s only three miles away from the strip.  Here you will enjoy great modern and contemporary art pieces while enjoying a nice escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

10.  See the Largest Selection of Western Boots

Be sure to head to the far south end of Las Vegas Blvd and find the iconic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign.  Granted, you might have to wait your turn in order to participate in this as the area in front of the sign gets very crowded with visitors.

Nonetheless, it is one of the iconic free things to do in Vegas.  This is the perfect souvenir to take home with you on your trip to Las Vegas.

You know, Red Rock Canyon and the Las Vegas area are great items to add to a southwest road trip as well!  Granted, this one will require you to spend a little bit of money on transportation, so it is one of the cheap things to do in Las Vegas.

13.  City Center Fine Art

View the fine art collection in City Center.  Their goal was to bring fine art to an urban destination, and they did just that by populating their public spaces with some amazing artwork.

It’s funny to think that such amazing artwork can be included on the list of free things to do in Las Vegas.

14.  Visit the Eiffel Tower

Okay, so it’s not the real Eiffel Tower that we saw in Paris, but it’s a nice replica.

Take a picture in front of it, or for a small fee, ride to the top of the 46 stories and get a great view of the Las Vegas Strip.

Completely inspired by the Eiffel Tower’s illuminations in France, the replica in Las Vegas has a free, recurring light show every 30 minutes on the hour and the half-hour from sunset to midnight.  The 300 color changing lights and 800 strobe lights light up the Las Vegas skyline.

The picture can be included with your list of free things to do in Las Vegas, but the ride to the top costs so it will have to be added to your list of cheap things to do in Vegas.

Located right in front of The Paris Hotel and Casino, this is definitely a Vegas-style attraction.

15.  Witness the Fall of the Atlantis

This animated display of fire, water, and nine-foot-tall talking statues located in Caesar’s Palace Forum is sure to hold your attention.  The story is set in the kingdom of Atlantis, where king Atlas has to decide which of his children will overtake the throne.  And these siblings are in a true family feud.

It does get crowded once the show begins and it can be hard to hear the characters, but it doesn’t matter.  You can make up your own narrations.

Located near the Cheesecake Factory and the Nike store, the show lasts about 10 minutes and takes place every hour on the hour, beginning at 11 am.

16.  Get Your Picture With a Showgirl

Yes, you can get your picture with a showgirl!  Harrah’s Casino often has two or three of their showgirls ready to pose with whoever would like a picture. Of course, you should tip the ladies, so add this to your list of cheap things to do in Vegas.

17.  See the World’s Brightest Light Beam

Every night you can witness the World’s largest light beam.  Just find The Luxor pyramid and look up.  It’s the most powerful light in the world!

18.  Visit a 55-Foot Flame Shooting Sculpture

Head to the entrance of the container park in Vegas to check out a 55-foot flame shooting praying mantis.  I just don’t know what else to say about this.  LOL!

19.  Walk through the Bellagio Gardens

The Conservatory and Botanical Gardens at the Bellagio change with every season.  The horticulturists bring the Conservatory to life with different themes and colors to match the season.

The Bellagio Conservatory team transforms the 14,000-square-foot area several times a year.  Just head through the lobby of the hotel, you can’t miss the gorgeous display that awaits on the other side. 

When the season changes and the display changes, the plants, and trees that were here are recycled to help the Earth even more.

And even better, The Conservatory is open 24-hours a day!  This is another of my favorite free things to do in Las Vegas.

20.  Neon Museum

The Neon Museum is home to tons of old Las Vegas neon signs.  Here you will find signs from old casinos and other businesses from around Las Vegas.

Roam around and find your favorite it this vast Neon Graveyard.

The organization also refurbishes old signs along the Freemont Street Experience, so this museum is not one of the free things to do in Las Vegas, but it is one of the cheap things to do in Vegas.  And hey, it’s a non-profit organization, so your money is going to a good cause.

21.  Be Transported to Venice

Vegas hotels definitely go above and beyond, and the Venetian Hotel is not an exception to this rule.

Outside you get a taste of Venice with the gondolas on the canal, but inside is where you are truly transported.

Once inside, follow the canal that runs throughout the shops.  You will uncover lively piazzas with cafes connected by charming bridges, just like in Venice.  Well, not totally, but it’s something at least.

We loved walking through the Venetian Hotel experiencing all of the vast decor and the awesome street performers.

22.  Hang out at the Container Park

The downtown container park is a great place to shop, eat, and just plain hang out.  This 1.1-acre park is an entertainment mecca and welcomes over 2,000 visitors a day.

The first thing you will notice is the 44-foot-tall praying mantis that shoots fireballs from its antennae.  The park is home to restaurants, bars, a gelato parlor, and shopping.  The kids will also love the playground that houses a 33-foot slide!

They host free events including concerts, variety shows, and movie nights as well.  Take note that after 9 pm, the Container Park is an adults-only venue.

23.  Go Old-School at the Pinball Hall of Fame

Full of old-school pinball machines, this 10,000 square-foot museum will make you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.  The collection ranges from the 1950s to the 1990s.

Although you have to pay to play the machines (most only 25 cents), all the money goes to charity since this is a non-profit organization.

This should definitely be on your list of cheap things to do in Vegas.

24. See the Flamingos

Yes, it’s true, you can see real-life flamingos while on the Las Vegas Strip.

Located in the Flamingo Hotel, the Wildlife Habitat is home to exotic birds, fish, and of course, the flamingos.  The Habitat sits on 15-acres and is one of the free things to do in Las Vegas.

The 15-acre habitat is open daily.  While here, take your picture with one of the parrots, or see the daily feedings of the animals.  The pelicans are fed daily at 8:30 am and 2:00 pm.

If you love rock and roll, then you will love the collection of rock memorabilia at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.

The memorabilia includes instruments, outfits, and pictures from rock and roll legends including Nirvana, The Rolling Stones, Guns N’ Roses, and of course, Elvis!

We thought it was a fun thing to put on our list of free things to do in Vegas since you can view the memorabilia for free 24 hours a day.

26.  Explore M&M World

Get your M&M fix at M&M World on the strip.  With all things M&M, you’re bound to find something you love.

If you don’t want to spend any money, just walk around and explore this large store devoted to M&M’s.

27.  Go to the Circus for Free!

It’s true, you can see the circus for free while in Vegas! Head over to the Circus-Circus Hotel to see the performers fly through the air at the world’s largest permanent circus. 

Performances start daily at 11:30 am and include many different acts.  You can see people on the flying trapeze, aerial silk performance, clowns, and many other amazing acts.  This definitely deserves to be on your list of cheap things to do in Las Vegas.

28.  See the World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain

The Bellagio Chocolate Fountain is the world’s largest chocolate fountain in the world!  Once inside the Bellagio, head to the Jean Philippe Patisserie to observe this marvel.  I mean, can I just jump into this fountain?  I doubt the employees would appreciate that, but I love the thought!

Of course, after you watch the fountain, be sure and splurge on a chocolate treat!

31.  Biggest Golden Nugget in Existence

Located in downtown Las Vegas, inside of The Golden Nugget Hotel, you will find the biggest golden nugget in existence, the Hand of Faith.

The Hand of Faith was found in 1980 when Kevin Hillier found it outside of his hometown in Wedderburn, Australia.  The crazy part about this is the golden nugget was only about a foot underground!  He sold his nugget to the Golden Nugget Hotel for over a million dollars!

Today, you can see it on display at the hotel.  Definitely a quirky thing to have on your list of free things to do in Las Vegas.

32.  Visit “The Pawn Stars”

Head out of town a little and enjoy a hike to a fabulous natural hot spring.  Take note, parts of the hike are rather strenuous, so do your research before heading out.

There are several hot springs in the Las Vegas area that you can explore.  The 12-mile Hot Spring is one of the most popular.  This hot spring stays about 100 degrees and is a great way to relax after exploring the strip.

Another popular hot spring is the Gold Strike Hot Springs.  This spring is in a set of cascading pools in the Colorado River.  Getting here is a little harder though, so be sure and do your research before visiting.

35.  Stroll the Strip

One of the best things to do in Vegas is just strolling along the stip.  Take in all the excitement around you while popping in to visit any of the local stores or restaurants that you’d like.

Be warned though, the Las Vegas strip is much longer than it appears.  Given the fact that crossing the street requires you to go upstairs and cross over a bridge, walking the strip takes a little longer than you might originally think.  Pace yourself and be sure and drink lots of water.

36.  Play Lawn Games

The Gold Spike is an oversized adult playground.  You can hang out in the living room or the backyard and take part in all of the fun that surrounds you.

Whether you’re a fan of giant beer pong, cornhole, or Twister, this place has it all!  Grab a drink here and have some fun, making this one of the cheap things to do in Las Vegas.

37.  Catch the Sunset Stampede at Sam’s Town

Sam’s Town is located about 20 minutes away from the Vegas strip.  The Sunset Stampede is a 10-minute laser light and fountain show that includes animatronics and a babbling brook.  Another one of the free things to do in Las Vegas.

38.  Watch the Light Show at Bally’s

Every night the rooftop canopy over the Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s comes alive.  Set to custom-created music, this light show is highlighted by a Swarovski Crystal Starburst that soars above the shops.

The Aria Hotel houses the first permanent fine art collection in Las Vegas.  Here you can enjoy works by world-famous artists such as Henry Moore, Frank Stella, and Richard Long just to name a few.

You will enjoy seeing all forms of media while strolling through this beautiful collection.

47.  Admire the Glass Ceiling of the Bellagio

While inside the lobby of the gorgeous Bellagio hotel, look up!  Over your head, you will see over 2,000 colorful hand-blown glass sculptures.

These gorgeous flowers, crafted by renowned artist, Dale Chihuly, weigh in at over 40,000 pounds!  The masterpiece is called the “Fiori di Como” and is one of Chihuly’s most recognized pieces of art.  I’m sur

e that is due to the fact that 15-20,000 people come to the hotel’s lobby just to view the masterpiece.  The pieces are supported by a 10,000-pound steel armature to ensure that the pieces stay intact.

A fun fact, every morning between 2 and 5 am, a team of engineers clean and maintain the sculptures!

Originally created in 1979 by Benny Binion, the owner of the Horseshoe Casino, the Hall of Fame of Poker was to celebrate and preserve the names and legends of the poker community.  I guess it didn’t hurt that this served as a tourist attraction in his casinos as well.

In order to be in the hall of fame, the gambler must meet four criteria that include being well respected by peers.

51.  Watch Performance on Freemont Street

Freemont Street is always bustling with activity.  You can catch live performances from professionals and street performers.
