Free Entertainment in the City That Never Sleeps
Each year, Las Vegas hosts over 35 million visitors. Each and every one of them knows that the city isn’t cheap. It’s hard not to spend money here and that’s partly by design. But there are still some pretty amazing attractions that won’t cost you a dime…if you know where to look.
Remember that the nature of Las Vegas is to entice you into spending. Some of the items on this list are free, but will require you to not break down and give up your cash.
The Silverton Aquarium
The Silverton Hotel offers an aquarium containing over 4,000 different fish. Ranging from six inches to three feet, the collection includes some of the world’s most beautiful tropical species as well as some (almost) real mermaids.
There is nothing more essential to the Las Vegas experience than Fremont Street: A carnival of lights, sounds, and three concert stages worth of entertainment. This freebie will have you coming back night after night.
The Marjorie Barrick
Over on the University of Nevada’s campus is the Marjorie Barrick Museum. The collection is 100% free and constantly changing. The various galleries and theaters seize on all forms of art, both visual and physical, and offer a combination of innovation and traditional fine art.
Candy, Candy, Candy
M&Ms, Hershey’s, and Ethel M all have spots in Vegas where you can go for tours and tastings of some of America’s most treasured chocolates. Ethel M, for example, gives you an insider’s look on the production line itself.
The casinos, resorts, and hotels on The Strip are known around the world for their style and flash. A walking tour of the Bellagio’s fountains, the Palazzo’s atrium, and the Mirage’s volcano are all worth the time.
