Top 8 Things to do in Las Vegas for Free

As one of the top destination spots for tourists, weddings and meetings & conventions, Las Vegas has a lot to offer to see, visit, taste and do. Many of the attractions can be costly and add up, so we thought we’d give you some suggestions on free things to do while you’re in town!

1) View the Keep Memory Alive Event Center light up a spectacular color for a holiday – we turned red, white and blue for the Fourth of July.

2) Watch the dancing Bellagio Fountains – during the day or night, the breathtaking fountains are a can’t miss attraction.

3) Check out the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign and make sure to take a selfie while there.

4) Visit the Fremont Street Experience for the nightly light show and people watch – there’s no shortage of entertainment down there.

5) Head out to Red Rock or Mt. Charleston for a day of hiking and adventure in the grand outdoors.

6) Walk around The Venetian and find the landmarks that are replicas of Venice, including the grand canal, Rialto bridge and Campanile tower.

7) Learn how to play craps or blackjack with a free gaming lesson at your favorite casino.

8) Stroll through the Bellagio conservatory, breathe in fresh flowers and take photos along the way.

Power of Love

It’s the Power of Love

Prior to the 19th annual star-studded Power of Love gala on June 13 at MGM Grand, the invite-only pre-event cocktail party took place at the beautiful Keep Memory Alive Event Center. Guest of honor Andrea Bocelli surprised the crowd when he took to the stage for an impromptu performance of Ave Maria, bringing a number of guests to tears. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck provided decadent hors d’oeuvres and wine tastings and Dr. Cummings from the Cleveland Clinic spoke about his mission and current programs offered. It was the perfect kick-off to a weekend of excitement and fun!

The following night was a powerful evening of hope with spectacular live entertainment from Gloria Estefan, Martina McBride, Robin Thicke and Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion joining in duet for “The Prayer,” bringing the crowd to its feet. Celebrities were out in full force to walk the red carpet including Quincy Jones, Sharon Stone, Emilio Estefan, Suzanne Somers and Siegfried & Roy. Queen of the kitchen Giada De Laurentiis wowed the crowd with a three-course over-the-top dinner and guests bid on priceless silent auction packages, including a vacation at Richard Branson’s private island. Check out the photos to see both nights in action!
