Travelling on a Budget? Top Five Essential Vegas Attractions

Las Vegas is a city with so many attractions that it can be difficult to know where to start when planning a holiday there. From the famous casinos and iconic luxury hotels to the nearby Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam, Sin City, as it has become affectionately known, has something to cater for every taste and budget.  But if you are on a budget, trying to squeeze everything in and picking what to see and what to leave for another time can be quite a difficult task. To help balance the books, why not combine these five great value Las Vegas attractions with a handful of Las Vegas coupons?

Here are the top five attractions that everyone should see on their trip to including things that are free to do in Vegas.

1.       The Bellagio Fountains

This stunning outdoor water feature has become synonymous with the grandeur and opulence of Las Vegas, featuring in many Hollywood films such as Ocean’s Eleven, What Happens in Vegas and recent hit, The Hangover. It is a completely free attraction, with spectators invited to enjoy magnificent choreographed shows set to songs by Frank Sinatra, Madonna and Michael Jackson. More than 1,200 water nozzles and 4,500 lights are used to create these shows in the middle of the 9-acre man-made lake; the Bellagio Fountains are a sight not to be missed.

2.       Cirque du Soleil

The world-renowned Cirque du Soleil have not one, not two, but seven shows currently in residency in Las Vegas, and it would be a crime to miss out on seeing at least one. O, Mystere, The Beatles’ LOVE, Criss Angel BELIEVE, Zumanity, Viva ELVIS and KA are all playing at hotels across Vegas, in shows where anything is possible. Expect high-octane acrobatic skills, vibrant costumes, humour, drama and everything in between from the inimitable entertainment company.

3.       The Grand Canyon

Las Vegas happens to be a short drive or helicopter ride away from one of the Seven Natural Wonder of the World; the Grand Canyon. 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide in parts, and with a depth of over a mile, this mind-blowing attraction is one of the most spectacular sights the planet has to offer. With hot-air ballooning tours, helicopter transfers, night flights, floor landings and excursions to the Hoover Dam available, there is no excuse to miss the dramatic scenery and remarkable panorama that the Grand Canyon presents.

4. Venetian Hotel’s Grand Canal

This little slice of Italy is a holiday within a holiday; an exact replica of the canals that thread through the streets of Venice. The shops that line the waterways include big-name boutiques such as Hugo Boss, Sephora and Kenneth Cole, with eateries run by celebrity chefs and daily performances in the main square.

5.       Caesar’s Palace

No trip to Las Vegas would be complete without a stay in the iconic Caesar’s Palace. The charming faux-Roman architecture includes majestic columns, bubbling fountains, marble floors and imposing statues. The hotel is located in the middle of the Strip with easy access to all other major attractions, but with 180 shops and boutiques, a range of fine dining and casual restaurants and entertainment from Celine Dion and Matt Goss, there is barely any need to even step off the hotel site.
