ATTRACTIONS IN LAS VEGAS
When you think of Las Vegas you think of bright lights, slot machines and Poker tables but Vegas has so much more to offer than this. As well as playing on the slots, catching a show, and shopping in the designer stores you could check out some of the hundreds of attractions that are on offer. Just a caution however, you will be hard pushed to fit in a fraction of these during your trip, unless of course you plan to stay for 6 months! My tip would be to have a look at the main attractions I’ve listed below and make a list of the things that really appeal to you. You will then get to see the places that you wanted and not get disappointed that you didn’t have time to fit in that one place you were leaving to the end of the holiday but couldn’t because you ran out time.
HOTEL/CASINOS - PAID
Below are a list of attractions that are in some of the hotel/casinos that you have to pay for. I’ve listed the price for tickets but please note that whilst in Vegas you can pop into the numerous ticket stands that are doted around the strip. These ticket stands sell the tickets at a discount and are well worth visiting before buying tickets direct.
BEST FREE THINGS TO DO IN VEGAS
Las Vegas is a fantastic place to visit and it is most famous for its casinos, but if you are not much of a gambler or want to take a break from the tables then there are tons of places, attractions and other fun things to do around the strip. You may be surprised that some of these don't cost a thing and are great things to do with the family. Don't be put off and think that these places are not worth the visit, they do say that the best things in life are free!
The list below highlights some of the best activities, attractions and things to do for free which is concentrated around the Vegas Strip. This list will initially introduce you to the 'best of free' found at the hotels and casino's and continue with other locations around the Strip.

Whilst walking around Caesars Palace Forum shops you may welcome a little rest stop. Located in front of the Cheesecake Factory, you will get to see the statue of Atlantis and his children come to life. This animatronic show tells the tale of King Atlas who has to decide which of his children will rule the throne. This show has the works, smoke, water, fire and a large dragon! The special effects and the fact that this is free, it is a great little bit of entertainment for 10 minutes. Caesars Palace statue show times run on the hour so time this just right whilst in the area and you will enjoy this freebie.
