Vegas: Free Sights on the Strip

January 21, 2008 at 1:40 pm 1 comment

This is the last post on Vegas for a while.  A friend of mine is going to Vegas for the first time soon, and I thought it would be fun to compile a list of the sights on the Strip.  Here’s my list (from south to north):

1.  Excalibur’s Jesters Court features free variety acts throughout the day.
2.  Pay a visit to the big cats in MGM’s lion habitat
3.  Just off the Strip: Check out music memorabelia at Hard Rock
4.  Watch the dancing fountains at Bellagio.
5.  Admire the indoor garden at Bellagio.
6.  Just off the Strip: Catch beads at the Mardi Gras parade at Rio (you can ride in a float for a fee).
7.  Visit flamingos, penguins, and other birds at the 15 acre habitat at the Flamingo.
8.  Check out the Atlantis show at Caesars.
9.  Window shop in the upscale stores at Forum Shops at Caesars.
10.  See the “volcano” erupt at Mirage after dark. 
11.  Listen to the gondoliers sing at the Venetian.
12.  Giggle at the pirate show at Treasure Island (now featuring the story of the Sirens)
13.  Ogle the grandeur at the Wynn.
14.  If you want to brave Circus Circus, you can see clowns, aerialists, and jugglers.
15.  In downtown Vegas, catch the Fremont Street Experience, a special light and sound show beginning at dusk.

Cheap thrills:

1.  Ride the roller coaster at NYNY. 
2.  See Seigfried and Roy’s white tigers with the Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat at Mirage. 
3.  Go to the top of the Stratosphere.
4.  Ride one of three rides atop the Stratosphere.
5.  Drinks are free while you’re gambling (but don’t forget to tip the waitress).
