FREE SHOWS AND ATTRACTIONS??! too many to put on this page(just a few I can muster for now)

Free attractions: Las Vegas offers free drinks when you gamble, free lounge acts, free parking and a few free attractions.

MGM-Mirage Resorts has made an art of outdoor exhibits with the Battle of Buccaneer Bay at Treasure Island, the Volcano at the Mirage and the Fountains at the Bellagio.

The Rio's Masquerade Village offers a "Show in the Sky" that features live music, singing, dancing, stilt walkers and colorful costumes. This is where everyone gets those metallic beaded necklaces you've been seeing around town. Most observers watch the elaborate show for free, but if you really want to join the fun, pay $9.95, get in costume and party alongside the performers.

Next, for the mushy, sentimental (but they really are cute) attraction, visit the MGM Grand's Lion Habitat. The multilevel viewing area allows you to see several lions and cubs in a lush environment. Admission is free, but if you can't resist getting your picture taken with a lion, that will cost you $20. Click here for our guide to free Vegas attractions.

The early parrot catches the pirate: Want to see the pirate battle in front of Treasure Island? Don't wait until the last minute to grab your place. We recommend you take up battle stations at least 30 minutes before it starts -- perhaps 45 minutes. You'll get a chance for front-row viewing (maybe even a chair inside the Battle Bar), and you won't spend the duration of the show jumping up and down. Bring a copy of Showbiz to leaf through while you're waiting, or practice your people-watching -- it could be the next big Olympic sport.

On with the show: Many people complain (locals included) that Vegas stage shows are getting too expensive, but most of them are worth it. Besides, how could you face the folks at home without having seen a honest-to-goodness Vegas show?

It makes sense now: The Fremont Street Experience is one of those attractions that most people didn't understand when the idea was first proposed. After all, it's a light-and-sound show on a frame 90 feet above four blocks of Fremont Street. Who would go see that? It's turned out to be the best thing to have happened to downtown Las Vegas in quite some time. Themed shows appear every hour from dusk through midnight. Stages are also set up for occasional free concerts. Map it.

Pyramid scheme: We would rather be on the Luxor hotel-casino's attractions floor (702-262-4555), even at this very moment. The IMAX Theatre changes movies every few months and past features have included a biography of Michael Jordan, a 3-D exploration of the Galapagos, Cyberworld 3-D and All Access. The "In Search of the Obelisk" motion simulator ride is blessed by counterculture poet S. A. Griffin's deliciously campy performance as Dr. Osiris. The "King Tut's Tomb" attraction is better than it has any right to be. And best of all, there's a two-story arcade with air hockey tables. Air hockey, man!

is it safe down by the stratosphere end and bonanza gift store area in the day time or is it just dangerous at night

Re: safety

by Jamesr3939

I was just there two weeks ago and daytime is fine. After dark I think I would use a taxi.

Re: safety

by Agraichen

All depends on your definition of safe. I've walked the streets and back alleys of LV for years at all hours of the day when traveling there and never once had a problem. Just keep in mind that anywhere there is a crowd there is not necessarily safety, but it's less likely of major issues. However crowds are the best place for pickpockets, though I've not heard of that being a problem in LV.

Re: safety

by PinkFloydActuary

I don't think I'd classify it as dangerous...just "sketchy". In some of our walks over this two block stretch, we've been approached for money, but that's as rough as it has gotten. Never have done it at night - if I was in a group of 4 or more people, I probably wouldn't worry. If it was me and wifey, I'd probably think differently.

During the day, I've never felt unsafe, although two of my usual party of 7 refuse to make the trip anymore!

Travel Tips for Las Vegas

Las Vegas at Night

by madamx

Of course, you must walk up and down Las Vegas Boulevard at night, when all the lights are on, it's quite beautiful.

What you can also do besides going up the Stratosphere at night to see the lights is going up the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas and viewing the Bellagio fountains at night as well, giving you a different perspective. The last time I went to Las Vegas I was 12, and all I remembered was the Flamingo sign where we stayed, and Circus Circus.

I had to look at the Flamingo again, and it was exactly the same as I remember it.

Las Vegas is located along Interstate 15 in Clark County of southern Nevada.Generally regarded as the gambling capital of the U.S., glitz is supplied in quantily by huge hotel, casino complexes, which offer inexpensive lodging and dining, as well as entertainment from glamorus stars.
Las Vegas is also the gateway to Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Fountains at Bellagio
3600 S. Las Vegas Blv.
Bellagio Fountains Show:water and music show, the show runs every 15 minutes.When the music swells, the water swells.

Bright lights

by ZanieOR

One of my favorite things is just to walk up and down the strip at night admiring the beautiful (if gaudy) neon art created by the signs of all the big casinos.
Sometimes I even enjoy the older casinos more than the new ones, as impressive as they are. One night I stopped outside the Stardust and sat down to rest and became mesmerized by the water fountains that were basically spitting streams of water into each other, colored bright red, blue and green by lights.
At one point a family with several children, also fascinated by the flying water, joined me.
It was a pleasant and unexpected interlude, the kind that stands out in memory for no special reason .
