There's plenty to do and see in Vegas without spending a cent

On a budget? There's nothing better than attractions that don't require dipping into your wallet. Las Vegas is home to lots of free activities and must-see experiences that you can enjoy year-round without spending a dime.  

Welcome to Las Vegas sign

No trip to Vegas is complete without getting your picture taken by the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. It's been a Las Vegas landmark for 60 years, and it's easy to get to on the south end of the Strip.

Fountains of Bellagio

The Conservatory and Botanical Gardens at Bellagio, open 24 hours a day, features a stunning display of flowers, plants and trees, which is frequently changed and always provides a beautiful view.  The Fountains of Bellagio are a spectacular blend of water, music and light thoughtfully interwoven, and recently named the number one free attraction in the U.S. by TripAdvisor.com. Next door on the Strip is the art collection at CityCenter – amazing sculptures, paintings and more on display throughout ARIA, Vdara, Mandarin Oriental and Crystals. You can also visit the art studio at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas for an intriguing collection of contemporary works. 

Lake of Dreams

For more water wonders, check out the Lake of Dreams at Wynn Las Vegas, 3-acre secluded lake surrounded by lush forest, with a beautiful and free showing nightly.  

Fremont Street Experience

Fremont Street Experience presents Viva Vision, the "Biggest Big Screen" on the planet. With more than 12.5 million lights 550,000 watts of amazing sound, this nightly complimentary attraction is a sight not to be missed.

Flamingo Wildlife Habitat

If you're a fan of animals and wildlife, visit the Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo and see Chilean Flamingos, lush foliage, sparkling waters, swans, ducks, Koi and turtles.

Aquarium

There's definitely something fishy going on at the Aquarium inside The Silverton. The 117,000-gallon saltwater tank is home to the free interactive fish feeding shows with the 4,200 tropical fish, stingrays, eels and sharks.

Volcano at The Mirage

Other can't-miss Las Vegas favorites include the Volcano at The Mirage, the unparalleled collection of rock memorabilia throughout the Hard Rock Hotel and the complimentary world-renowned circus acts daily at Circus Circus.

The price is right, so be sure to enjoy these amazing free attractions in Las Vegas!

Jason Kennedy: My bachelor party weekend in Vegas

by Jason Kennedy

When you spend your life interviewing celebrities like I do, it's nice to feel like you're on the other side of the rope once in a while. That's how it was for my friends and me last month when I had my bachelor party in Las Vegas. The whole weekend was amazing, and Vegas has a way of making everyone feel like a star.

There are few things better to me than having all my best buds together. And this weekend we all happened to be together.. in one of the most exciting cities in the world! As you can imagine, I had been looking forward to this trip for a long time. You only get one bachelor party, after all. And from the get-go, I wasn't disappointed. You should have seen the room my group had a The Venetian, for starters. I'm pretty sure it was bigger than my house. I got lost twice. Hats off to the resort staff for their insane hospitality. I'm forever grateful for the way they treated us.

The first night we hit the Brooklyn Bowl, checked out the High Roller observation wheel and took on the very relaxing Voodoo Zip Line at the Rio scooting across hotel towers at 500 feet. Here's my best man Rich Wilkerson in complete panic mode while I remain perfectly calm.

The next day I was determined to do something that didn't require signing a waiver. If you like golf, you have to play a round at Bali Hai Golf Course. It's one of my favorite courses and, no, I won't tell you what I shot. Let's say Rickie Fowler's job is safe.

That night we had dinner at TAO. It's worth flying to Vegas just for their spicy tuna with crispy rice rolls and baked cod. Thank you to Mike Snedegar and the gang for always making me feel like family. After dinner, we continued the party upstairs to TAO Nightclub where all my friends surprised me with a cake. I don't know why they got me a cake. Is that what people do for bachelor parties? Either way, I was so grateful for all of them trekking from all over the country to meet me in this city that never disappoints. And I'm equally as grateful to all the wonderful people of Las Vegas who took away the worries (except for whoever planned the zip line trip), and let us enjoy one of the best weekends of my life. Thank you, Las Vegas!

You'll love Las Vegas this Valentine's Day

Looking to spark up a little romance for Valentine's Day? A cozy and intimate Las Vegas getaway will keep your flame burning for that special someone all year long. And after you rekindle your flame, or if you're looking to find one - be sure to check out the fun Las Vegas has in store for you all holiday weekend long.

Ciel spa

Start with a little soothing of the senses. Las Vegas is home to the more than 45 unique and relaxing luxury spas. Most spas offer specials for couples. Ciel spa at SLS Las Vegas has a couples massage suite that's perfect for you and your valentine.

You'll find specialty spa services all over Las Vegas, such as sport, Shiatsu and Swedish massages; herbal baths; wraps; aromatherapy and reflexology; steam rooms, saunas, whirlpools; and more. You'll be in the lap of luxury and leave feeling invigorated and refreshed.

Gondola ride

Then you'll be ready for a night out just for two. Take a stroll through the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in the early evening or a romantic gondola ride at The Venetian. Then head into the Four Queens Hotel and look for Hugo's Cellar. As you might guess, it's in the basement of the hotel - a rustic, charming and vintage Vegas restaurant awaits you. The food and ambience are top-notch; both complemented by some of Vegas' finest servers. And tradition here is strong, as every lady receives a complimentary rose upon leaving. For the ultimate in intimacy, dine in the 50-seat gourmet room at Michael's inside the South Point.

Eiffel Tower Experience

If you don't want to dine in a cellar, you can have your head in the clouds instead, overlooking Las Vegas at the Stratosphere's Top of the World restaurant, or experience the ultimate in romantic getaways at Eiffel Tower Restaurant. Great food, piano entertainment and a view of the city - it's a Valentine's Day dinner your partner will never forget. Just across Las Vegas Boulevard, there is no better waterfront dining experience than Le Cirque. Exquisite French cuisine and an extensive wine list will tempt your taste buds as you enjoy the famous dancing Fountains of Bellagio.

Chandelier Bar

Afterward, get cozy and enjoy some of Las Vegas' unique nightlife, from the panoramic views at Drai's Nightclub atop The Cromwell to the retro-swagger of Matt Goss at Caesars Palace. Then enjoy late-night cocktails at The Chandlier at The Cosmopolitan, a unique three-level bar with different experience on each.

Las Vegas weddings

Of course, if you're looking to tie the knot, Las Vegas knows a thing or two about weddings. The Bellagio is one of several resorts with special wedding day packages just for Valentine's Day

Then, it's time to let loose. With the Presidents Day holiday included, you'll have an extra day to experience the concerts, comedy, celebrities and club performances that only Vegas can deliver. Check out who's in town this weekend below, or scroll through our full weekend lineup.

The football party you've been waiting for all season is in Las Vegas

It's become a holiday weekend all its own -- centered on pro football's biggest game. But while the gridiron action is the main event, the entire week surrounding it has become a celebration, complete with parties galore, celebrity appearances and more. This year, make Las Vegas your homefield for all of the fun!

Catch every big play in Las Vegas' luxurious sports books and lounges and restaurants - and even lavish nightclubs - with arena-style seating. Here's a list of some of the places to see it all unfold:

Hyde Bellagio

Enjoy a slice of Las Vegas nightlife during the day and watch the title game at Hyde inside the Bellagio. The Big Game Viewing Party (21 and over) begins at 2 p.m. with a hosted bar until 5 p.m., a special game-time food menu, and of course, lots of HD plasma and VIP big screen TVs and plenty of seating.

The House of Blues at Mandalay Bay has gameday parties at both the Foundation Room and Crossroads Restaurant & Bar, each complete with raffles and giveaways and all the revelry you can handle. 

Chateau

Watch the game from high above the Strip as Chateau at Paris Las Vegas converts into big game headquarters, complete with a tailgate-style buffet and bottomless beer from 3-6 p.m. Across the street, you can party on the patio at RHUMBAR. The Mirage club is transforming into Caribbean patio into a gridiron paradise. 

Blondie's

Reserve a table for the championship game at Blondies Sports Bar & Grill inside the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood and enjoy the premium buffet and open bar, including top shelf drink options, starting at 1:30 p.m. Watch the game on the big screens and you'll also be eligible for giveaways and other prizes. For a great view of the Las Vegas Strip, as well as a place to enjoy the game and some good food, check out Twin Peaks

Also inside the Miracle Mile is Cabo Wabo Cantina, where you watch the game in comfort in The Loft, a luxurious new events space with a 184-inch video grid, and all-you-can-drink and all-you-can-eat specials. A similar package is available at Tacos y Tequila at Luxor. If you love chicken wings, quesadillas and taquitos with your football, T&T could be the perfect venue for your big game fun. 

The Pub at Monte Carlo

You can also choose from one of four viewing packages - and sample some amazing microbrews - at The Pub at Monte Carlo. Across the street at CRUSH inside the MGM Grand, nosh on the special gameday menu with butler-style service and tableside snacks all day long.

Sports books. Las Vegas' luxurious sports books, including the comfortable seating at The Mirage or theater-style atmosphere of Football Central at Westgate Las Vegas, are the next best thing to being at the game. At Caesars Palace, groups of eight can request a special "man cave" for a VIP feel.

Lagasse's Stadium at The Palazzo. BAM! Kick it up a notch when you watch the big game here. You can also indulge in football bites from the specialty tailgate menu at La Cave inside Wynn Las Vegas. The resort's more casual restaurants, including Allegro and Society Cafe, also have special menus and offers just for this football showcase.

Both Hard Rock Cafe locations are offering a variety of viewing packages for fans, each with food and drink specials of their own. And at the new Shake Shack inside New York-New York, go for the Two-Pint Conversion and get a free mini-Shack football. 

Make Las Vegas your home for pro football's biggest weekend!
