Much like many other famous cities, it’s entirely possible to only spend a few days in Las Vegas, Nevada, and end up spending a month’s worth of grocery money in just one night.

Even though the Strip and other tourist-concentrated areas of Vegas can be ridiculously expensive, luckily there’s a wide range of free things that you can plan to see and do to save you some valuable spending money. That said, here are three of the best free things to do in Sin City.

1. Walk The Strip

When you visiting Vegas for the first time, your whole body will be assaulted by the sensory experience all around you, especially if you’re staying on The Strip.

As soon as you walk out of the doors of your casino hotel, you’ll be greeted by mesmerizing street dancers, iconic celebrities, and legendary singers’ lookalikes all vying to get a photo taken with you, and of course, the all-consuming heat of the desert.

It costs absolutely nothing to immerse yourself in the sights, smells, and sounds of the Vegas Strip, so put on your comfiest shoes, pack a bottle of water, and head out there!

2. Visit Every Major Casino Hotel

If you’re sensibly staying away from the bigger casino floors on the Strip, namely The Venetian, Paris, and New York New York, yet still fancy a flutter, then you should head to Jackpot Jill, a leading online casino, so you can learn how to play the slot machines and have a regulated play. 

Remember, the servers in Vegas are specially trained to weed out the authentic gamblers from those who are just after the free refreshments, so unless you’re prepared to gamble, stay away from the casino floor. 

Instead, plan your trip to include visits to each of the major themed casino hotels on the Strip, as this is entirely free, and some of them truly have to be seen to be believed, namely:

  • Excalibur: An English castle-themed venue, with live jousting and stained glass 


  • Luxor: An incredibly impressive Egyptian-themed casino, complete with a giant sphynx 
  • New York New York: An NYC-style hotel, with all the iconic buildings and the Statue of Liberty
  • The Venetian: A jaw-dropping casino hotel with an Italian river running right through the center. You can even book a gondola ride!

3. The Bellagio Fountains

Featured in far too many iconic films and television series to list here, the famous Bellagio fountains perform a spectacular water dance to different styles of music throughout the day and night.

The fountains are entirely free to enjoy and situated right outside the Bellagio Hotel and Casino estate. They were built to celebrate the grand opening of the Bellagio by the original owner, Steve Wynn, who now has his own casino on the Vegas Strip; The Wynn. 

Once you’ve enjoyed the water show, head back down Las Vegas Boulevard past Paris, Bally’s, MGM, New York New York, Luxor, Excalibur, and then Mandalay Bay to visit the world-famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign.
