Visiting Las Vegas on a humble budget seems to be a far-fetched dream. It may look incredible to both bunches of visitors: those who’re not addicted to play at casinos and those who’re. First lot of tourists perform better in sticking with their budget but not well enough as chances are high to get lured at designer boutiques, 5-star hotels, Michelin-starred restaurants and topnotch nightclubs. If you’re chalking out a plan to rob a high-end casino so to sponsor your trip (taking queue from Ocean’s Eleven) then I would say that less risky adventures are enough to reach the goal. I’ve jotted down few tips in the following lines, in conclusion of my last year’s visit during fall, where I enjoyed Las Vegas for 7 days without being merciless on my purse.
Places to visit and things to do
Las Vegas strip is a wonderful place to visit and that too without spending a penny. Watching the gondoliers of Venice, Luxor pyramids, Bellagio’s interior botanical garden, New York’s Brooklyn Bridge or simply putting a pose by the sign of Las Vegas.
Freemont Street or Old Las Vegas where magic through neon lights have been created at footpaths is a small effort to reverse its old glory.
Some casinos like Flamingo offers free watch of exotic collection of Flamingo birds inside lush green garden spread across 15 acres of land. Huge tropical aquarium can be visited at Silverton casino.
For the first Friday of the month an artistic event is organized by local artists. Live musical performance, food stalls; art schools for kids are organized here.
Power pass is a worthy investment that includes many sites like Mob Museum, Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden, Bellagio art gallery, Stratosphere observation deck and Madame Tussauds. For 5 days it costs around $136. Some places like Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead Cruise and Grand Canyon are included in the trip.
Top city views
The Observation Deck of Stratosphere Tower is the highest point of Las Vegas and costs $20 per person. For adventure lovers discount packages are available for crazy rides. Bird’s eye view of Las Vegas is availed from Eiffel Tower which costs about $ 11.50 during day and $16.50 at night. Senior citizens over 60 years age and children have discounts and a big surprise for birthday boys and girls who can avail free entries (provided you bring a valid photo-id card).
Drinks at good price are available at high-rise bars. Ghostbar of the Palms costs you $10 and is open from 8 pm. VooDoo is a rooftop nightclub of Rio that is opened from 9pm and costs $20.
Eating and drinking
Downtown Las Vegas or restaurants at the stripe are cheaper options of eating out. Eating early could give you a good deal in pre-theatre menus. You can get discount coupons in booklets distributed at your hotels or cabs.
Casino buffets are great deal of discounted offers you can avail of to eat amazing dishes, unlimited in number and various types of exquisite drinks. Buffet of Buffets pass is offered at $49.99. Within 24 hours you can go and eat out at 7 best casinos. Caesars Entertainment’s ‘Total Rewards Program’ offers you good discounts at their restaurants.
Entertainment and Las Vegas are synonymous to each other and that’s why when you’re here, you can’t even think of ditching this aspect of the famous Las Vegas. Discounted tickets are available at stores spread through the Strip and Downtown area. Stores of Tix4Tonight sell tickets of the same day. They open their outlets at 10am and best collection of tickets is available then.
Free shows are also conducted in several casinos and one of the most popular one is the Bellagio Fountains where thousands of fountains are choreographed with musical notes after every 15 minutes starting from 8 pm and conducted still midnight. In the afternoons they’re played after every 30 minutes.
Outside Mirage casino, the volcano erupts after a gap of half an hour between 6 to 11 pm. At Circus-Circus free shows comprising of clowns and acrobats are conducted after every 30 minutes between 11 am to midnight.
Hope you like my tips and that they being really helpful to you. I am looking forward for your feedbacks. Keep in touch.
