Maybe you are hoping to join us for our upcoming Annual Wealth Summit and want to turn the weekend into a holiday, or maybe you’re simply interested in getting away to have a few days of fun.
Whatever your reasons, the perfect getaway spot is Las Vegas.
Well, for one, there’s something for everybody in this unique city. Shows, amusement parks, fine dining, games, nature trips…you name it, Las Vegas has it.
And the best part?
For most of it, you don’t have to spend a dime.
You might be wondering how this is possible, or maybe thinking that I’m about to give you a list of lack-luster experiences that pale in comparison to pricey Vegas to-dos.
But that’s just not the case.
Las Vegas is all about the thrills, which means over-the-top giveaways, entertainment, and flashy experiences that have the sole purpose of adding to the incredible atmosphere of the unique town.
Now, some of the free experiences offered by Vegas are given away in an attempt to draw you in to the casinos, clubs, and other pocket-draining spots, but most of them are simply meant to keep guests entertained, while also upholding the flamboyant and fun reputation throughout the famous locale.
So, what do you want to do on your trip?
Maybe you’re a lover of the outdoors.
Great, you can hop in the car and take a drive up to the Grand Canyon. It’s only 2 hours away from downtown Las Vegas, and there are a number of free places to stop and take in the view along the edge of this amazing natural wonder.
Now, Vegas businesses do offer guided tours (one of which takes you to the canyon in a helicopter!) but why not just turn it into a mini road trip for the day? I can promise the view is worth it!
Maybe you like live performance, but aren’t too keen on spending $150 on a ticket to one of the top shows in Vegas.
No problem. You can catch free performances all over the city.
One of my personal favorites is the free circus performance at the famous Circus Circus resort and casino.
Another amazing spot to catch the very best of Vegas free of charge is at the Venetian Resort. Walk down a gorgeous representation of old Venice and take part in the Streetosphere—an area of the resort where incredible street performers act, play music, and showcase a wide range of other talents, all with a classic Italian twist.
Or, if you love the water, head to the aquariums at the Silverton (where you might just catch sight of a mermaid or two), or check out the Fall of Atlantis show at Caesar’s Palace. Then, if you still haven’t had enough of the waterworks, check out the famous fountain show at the Bellagio (with a special Holiday-themed performance for those joining us this December!) and then finish off with a stop by the incredible indoor Rainstorm at the Miracle Mile Shops of Planet Hollywood.
If you’re more of a foodie, you’re in luck. As a guest at many of the resorts in Vegas, you’ll likely have access to complimentary or all-you-can-eat buffet options, and if you do decide to gamble, you’ll be treated to free drinks on the casino floor.
Or, if you want a slightly sweeter sort of experience, head on over to Ethel M Chocolate Factory for a free tour featuring (many) free samples of some of the finest chocolate the U.S. has to offer.
Then, if you want the chance to travel back in time, you can check Le Cabart Bar at the Paris Hotel for glitzy musical performances, and then head on to Harrah’s to hang out at the famous piano bar.
For the perfect end to your free trip to Vegas, I would suggest a stroll along the Grand Bazaar shops, where you can watch New Year’s happen every night, as the Swarovski Star drops at midnight each day.
Now, this isn’t the full extent of all the free and affordable options for your no-stress, no-fee vacation to Vegas, but these are definitely some of the best, and listing all the rest would take eons!
Just in parting, I’ll list off a few of my other favorites:
The Polaroid Fotobar, the Volcano Show at the Mirage, the Freemont Street experience, The Bellagio topiaries and botanical gardens, Art Lover’s Paradise at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, CityCenter’s Fine Art Collection, the flamingo habitat at the Flamingo Resort and Casino, the Hoover Dam hot springs, the Mirage Resort Aquarium, Container Park…and many more!
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to book the best (and most affordable) vacation you’ll ever take!
See you in Vegas!
