The Botanical Gardens at Bellagio feature several beautiful fountains collectively known as the Fountains of Bellagio. Every fifteen to thirty minutes throughout every day of the year, these fountains shoot water high into the air in sync with various classic and popular music tunes. It's one of the most entertaining sights in Vegas especially for families and it is absolutely free.

The Fremont Street Experience is a five-block collection of lights, outdoor concert venues, and shopping outlets that is free to all. It has been described as a mini-Las Vegas within Las Vegas and the concert performances at the venue features some of today's biggest artists.

Circus Circus is one of the most popular hotels in the city and one of the reasons is the free circus show and carnival midway contained therein.

While Las Vegas is indeed one of the more expensive travel destination options, it still has its share of fun and exciting attractions that don't cost visitors anything but the time it takes to enjoy them.
