It’s easy to lose your money in Vegas. All it takes to land in the red is a run of bad luck at the tables or a greedy machine. Fortunately, there are a lot of free things to do in Las Vegas. They may not compensate for your losses, but at least you’ll have something to do before boarding the plane back to boredom. The following list of our favorite Las Vegas freebies is by no means comprehensive, but we’re certain they will more than adequately occupy your time if you find yourself suddenly short of cash and have time to kill.
VACATION NOW’S FAVORITE VEGAS FREEBIES
If you’ve lost your loot at Circus-Circus, Las Vegas’ famous big top casino, just look up. You can watch acrobats flying through the air high above the casino floor at every half hour.
Everything goes better with chocolate – even the bitter taste of bankruptcy – so take a tour of Las Vegas area chocolatier Ethel M and enjoy the free samples. Also free? The 10-mile hike from the Strip to Ethel M’s suburban Henderson headquarters.
Made of chrome, the 9-foot-tall Lucky Cat at the Cosmopolitan spits out free fortunes to those who place their hand on his paw. On second thought, maybe you should have visited Lucky before you lost your money.
Hungry but short of cash after spending your last $95 getting married at the downtown chapel affiliated with the Fremont Street Denny’s? Free pancakes come with every wedding!
SIGN US UP!
Take a selfie at The Welcome to Las Vegas Sign, the iconic, double-backed attraction that says hello and goodbye to visitors driving on either side of 5100 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Open 24 hours, the sign will help you remember the time you went to Vegas, bet it all on red, and spent the next two days looking for free things to do.
Gaze in awe at the world’s largest gold nugget at – where else? – the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas. Found in Australia in 1980 and sold to the casino for more than a million dollars, the “Hand of Faith” nugget weighs in at a whopping 61 pounds. Hey, Golden Nugget! Can you spare a measly ounce for a cash-strapped visitor?
LOVE THE LAVA!
Watch a volcano erupt six hours a night every 30 minutes at The Mirage. Complimentary lava segues seamlessly into …
Complimentary water at the Bellagio Fountains. Oh, how they dance like nobody’s watching!
TOP OF THE WORLD!
Take the 110-story elevator ride to the top of the Stratosphere for a panoramic view of Las Vegas. The ride down is also free.
FREE ON FREMONT!
One of the best shows in town is absolutely free beneath the Fremont Street Experience canopy in downtown Las Vegas. The “Experience” is a series of hourly light and animation displays that appear on the underside of a 90-foot high canopy that stretches five blocks from Main Street to Las Vegas Boulevard. It is an unmatched visual and aural experience.
