Enjoy Some Chocolate
If you’re looking for something sweet, you can enjoy free chocolate in a few different places in the city! Head to Ethel M, the chocolate maker, where you can take a free factory tour and enjoy some free simples. Or head over to the newer Hershey’s Chocolate World, which is free to enter and you can find some free samples inside.
Have a Drink –For Free!
Yes, it is possible to drink in Vegas for free—or at least as close to “free” as you’ll get for some drinks while in this popular city. If you want to enjoy some great “free” drinks, head to casinos like Golden Nugget and El Cortez Casino, where there are unlimited complimentary drinks while you’re on the game floor. You’ll need to tip your server, though, or you’ll soon find yourself without a stream of free, delicious drinks
See a Show
If you want to see a show without spending money, head to Circus-Circus, where you can view the free circus acts that perform above–and sometimes on–the casino floor. Acrobats and unicyclists are the most popular performers to see here, though remember that while seeing the performers is free, you’ll need to pay if you want to enjoy the rides or play casino games.
If you don’t mind spending a bit of money, you can find great discounts on the Magic Mike Show Las Vegas, especially if you look online before you visit or Xavier Mortimer too !
Enjoy Some Artwork
If you’re an art lover, you’re in luck! There are plenty of places in Vegas where you can see some fantastic art without spending a time. If you head to the CityCenter campus, you’ll see free public art by artists like Claes Oldernburg, Nancy Rubin and even Coosje van Brugten. If you don’t mind ignoring the shopping temptations of a mall, head to Crystals, the CityCenter mall; there, you can see an amazing light-based art installation by James Turrell. Finally, head inside the Louis Vuitton Maison flagship store to see a permanent art installation by James Turrell which is free to visit with an appointment.
Browse a Pawn Shop
If you love the show Pawn Stars, then you won’t want to pass up the opportunity to see the real life pawn shop featured on the show. It’s free to visit and browse, though if you want to buy anything, plan to spend quite a bit of money. You will want to line up early so that you don’t have to spend all day waiting. Of course, for fans of the show, the wait is more than worth it once they see the inside of the famous shop and even get a glimpse of the show’s stars.
Take a Walk on the Strip
You don’t have to spend money to walk the famous Vegas Strip! There’s plenty to do and see, including taking a look at the famous Swarovski Crystal Starburst, a massive LED crystal that lights up and provides plenty of sparkle and twinkle at night; heading into the Polaroid Fotobar, a free photo museum that is until midnight (weekdays) or 2 AM (weekends).
Whether you’re heading to Vegas with friends or alone, don’t forget to add these fun free things to do to your trip schedule!
