Las Vegas on a Budget

Want to have some fun in Las Vegas during Global Conference but don’t want to break the bank? You can! All you need are a few bucks and some comfortable shoes, and you’ll be living it up like a high roller in your free time.

Free Attractions

There are plenty of attractions that are completely free. The Fountains of Bellagio and the hotel’s botanical gardens and conservatory, the Welcome to Las Vegas sign, the Volcano at The Mirage, and The Wildlife Habitat at The Flamingo are great sights you can see without opening your wallet. There is also a free pirate show at Treasure Island and a free circus show at Circus Circus that won’t cost a dime.

New this year is the Eiffel Tower Light Show, nightly on the hour and half hour. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower’s illuminations in France, the enhanced lighting at the Paris Las Vegas attraction will offer a free, recurring light show every 30 minutes from sunset to midnight. The show features synchronized and choreographed twinkling and colored lights for visitors to enjoy nightly on The Strip.

Get Happy

One of the best ways to take advantage of less-expensive meals and cocktails is to dine at restaurants during their happy hours. Their times tend to vary from place to place, and not all offer a happy hour, but many of them do. With a little research you’re bound to find a Happy Hour to suit your needs.

Go to Paris

Ok, so it’s not really Paris, and it’s not quite free, but it’s pretty close and a great way to see Vegas day or night, 460 feet above the Strip. From the rivets in its beams to its glass elevators, the Eiffel Tower replica at Paris Las Vegas encompasses the same je ne sais quoi as the original. And did we mention it’s one of the most romantic spots in Las Vegas? Oui! Tickets range from about $16-22 depending on whether you visit in the day or night time. Plus, there are specials available for families, US Military, Seniors and Students with ID!

Fremont Street Experience

Pretty much everything on Fremont Street is well under the price of the Strip − from the food and drinks to the entertainment, even gambling. And, of course, people watching is always free.

Hop on the Bus

The Deuce bus stops at every hotel and is your cheapest option when you want to rest your feet. Plus, it’s a double-decker so it’s a great way to sightsee the Las Vegas Strip. The Deuce Operates 24-hours/day, every day and runs from the Fremont Street Experience in Downtown Las Vegas all the way to the Mandalay Bay.

The Monorail is another option that goes from one end of the strip to the other and is cheaper than a taxi. One ride costs $5, or you can purchase unlimited passes for 1-7 days, starting at $13.

Score a Deal!

Check out discount web sites and apps such as Groupon and Living Social for great deals on food and drink, activities, beauty and spa services and more! Be sure to check dates and restrictions before purchasing.
