One of my most favorite places to go is Las Vegas! I always have a blast when I visit Vegas and there are always new things to do, places to go and items to see! Vegas can be done with several different budgets which is what makes it an awesome city! You can make Vegas super expensive by hitting up the most high class society restaurants and shows or you can also have the option to visit more economical places and there are
even free exhibits to visit as well that are there year round. I have written about Vegas quite a bit on my blog in the past. You can visit my articles about How to Visit Vegas on a Budget Part 1 & How to Visit Vegas on a Budget Part 2 as well as How to Never Pay Full Price in a Vegas Night Club. This article will be about 10 things to do in Las Vegas that cost under $10 & I am sure there will be parts 2 & maybe even 3 in the future because there is just so much to do in Las Vegas!!
Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens
These gardens are breathtaking and they are open 24 hours a day and contain seasonal displays & live music performances! The Botanical Gardens are such a sight to see and always one of my favorite highlights when I am in town! 140 expert horticulturists change the displays seasonally and they arrange gazebos, bridges, ponds, and ever changing floral arrangements each season.
Swimming Pool at your hotel
Every hotel in Vegas seems to have the most elaborate swimming pool and each place outdoes the next! The hotel swimming pools at each resort are really a sight to see and they are free, unless you go to a daytime club at the pool, there will be a cover charge of about $20. The pool is always a fun place to go for people watching and relaxation! Inquire at your hotel about the pools because some hotels have more than one different type of pool.
Walk the Strip
There is literally so much to see when you walk the strip because it seems like there is always a hotel adding on something new or a new hotel being built. See the sights and hear the sounds of Vegas as you walk down the street for one of the most entertaining people watching shows, as well as great views of gorgeous structures and entertainment that light up the Las Vegas strip!
Get a drink at the Chandelier Bar and feel like a movie star
The Chandelier Bar is absolutely breathtaking inside of the Cosmopolitan Hotel. I also love the Vesper Bar as they are both decked out with sparkly strands of over 2 million crystals! This is definitely a sight to see & while my wine selection is pricy at this bar, it is still under $20. I prefer a glass of Peju Merlot and it does run for about $16…so do not be super shocked. 🙂
Gamble the cheap slots
I am definitely not a gambler…It is honestly not what I even think of when going to Vegas but I have been known to slowly dwindle away no more than $7 per trip on the silly penny and nickel slot machines. This can be fun if you have some time to waste and you want to have the casino experience. My favorite part of this madness is that I am served free drinks while I throw my money in the trash, so at least I am somewhat getting it back. 🙂
World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain in the Bellagio hotel
The chocolate fountain inside of the Bellagio is pretty awesome and you can sit and watch the chocolate trickle down and it literally makes you salivate as you glare at this fountain. The best part of it is that it is located in the chocolate store, Jean Philippe, so you can go into buy some of this decadent chocolate that is a flowing! At 27 feet tall, made with 500 feet of stainless steel piping, this fountain is in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the World’s Largest Chocolate Fountain!
Delve into M&M’s World and fill up a bag of M&M’s that are sold in every flavor you can imagine, as well as every color! You can even personalize your M&M’s with names on them. The M&M’s world is several stories high & there is an elevator to go from floor to floor to purchase a variety of different M&M Products, such as t-shirts, backpacks, baby clothing, toys, and more! You can also take photos with life size M&M’s characters in the store. 🙂
Coca Cola World is an awesome place to visit in that there are Coca Cola products from all over the world that you have the opportunity to sip and savor or literally spit out! I am not kidding…there are some Coca Cola products I have tried there that made my eyes water and my mouth gag & there are some flavors that I wish so badly we could have in the United States that are only sold in countries 23 hours away by airplane. J I definitely recommend purchasing the sampler of Coca Colas which has about 16 coke flavors and was under $10 last time I went a few years ago. J You can also purchase Coca Cola products, such as shirts, toys, backpacks and other memorabilia.
Circus Circus was always the place that my parents took my brother and I as kids because the buffet was cheap and there were so many fun activities for kids including an arcade and fun games where we could win stuffed animals! Something else offered for free in Circus Circus is the FREE circus show that goes on throughout the hotel that you can watch daily. This is fun for young children, as well as adults and how can you go wrong with free? 🙂
Fountains of Bellagio water show
The Fountains of Bellagio always seems to move me to tears. Beautiful Italian Music is usually playing in the background, along with a variety of other classics and you can sit and watch the water show from the strip or the bridge as well that connects hotels across the street for as long as you choose. It is always a sight to see and a very romantic place to visit with the one you love. My favorite thing…this attraction is free! I enjoy eating at Mon Ami Gabi at the Paris hotel across the street while watching the show, which is definitely a pricier place, but the food is great & you can get the best view of the show!
I was inspired to write this post because I have been craving Vegas like crazy lately as I usually go 3-4 times a year and I have not been there since January! I have been a fan on Vegas since my first visit when I was 3 years old. 🙂
I will most likely have a part 2 to this post because I already have 10 other great deals in my head, but I did not want this post to be too long. 🙂 If there are any other fun things you can thing of in Vegas that are free or under $10 please mention them in the comments below! Happy travels!

Wow, I didn’t know that the largest chocolate fountain can be seen at Las Vegas.
It is a pretty awesome sight to see and the chocolate in the store is soooo yum!
I have never been to Vegas. I need to go just for the food and pools.
