Las Vegas on a Budget, Save money on your trip

Apr 3, 2008
Regardless of who you are or where you are from, everyone dreams of that one perfect vacation getaway. When you spend every day running through the usual nine to five schedule that marks the common life of the average blue-collar worker, time off is almost a fantasy, and spending time in a distant land on an adventure would be a fantasy come true. Sadly, most average American citizens simply cannot afford a vacation every year, if ever at all. Vacations can be quite expensive when one takes into account the travel costs, hotel accommodations, shows, attractions, and all the eating out that is involved. Most people just do not have that kind of money to throw away.

Fortunately, Las Vegas, one of the top tourist and vacation spots in the world, does have other options for those who are traveling on a budget. You actually can go to this major hotspot of vacation destinations and have an excellent time while spending very little of your hard-earned money on each attractions. Some are even free!

First, for the conspiracy and the Sci-Fi fan, there is the ever-popular Area 51. This spot has been the basis for thousands of movies and numerous conspiracy theories. For years there have been many tales of the alien ships and corpses that has been hidden away in Area 51. Of course, you cannot enter the area itself, but simply being able to see it is an adventure. Be warned, if you do attempt to go in, you will be cut off by agents who will use whatever force is necessary to get you out or arrest you. Yet, the United States Government continually tells us that there is nothing at Area 51 to hide. Sounds a bit on the fishy side, doesn't it?

For an absolutely free site that will stay with you for years to come, visit the Dancing Fountains at the Bellagio strip. Here you will find over one thousand fountains of beautiful water. That alone is enough to make it worth the trip. However, in the background you will hear many of the famed crooners that have become well known Vegas Performers singing their greatest songs. The fountain waters are timed to dance with the music, creating an amazing natural ballet of sorts.

Then, you'll want to cruise down the Las Vegas strip, home of some of the most ornate buildings in the world. Though all of these are a treat to see, your destination is actually the Flamingo Hilton Wildlife Habitat located in the heart of this area. Though this may be the last place you would ever expect to see a wildlife habitat, it is there nonetheless and full of fascinating forms of wildlife, including Penguins, Flamingos, turtles, various forms of fish and aquatic wildlife and a wide variety of different winged creatures to boot.

Other local free options are the Ethel M. Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden, the Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, The Bugsy Segal Memorial, Planet Hollywood, and the Ron Lee World of Clowns Factory. These are only a few of the free attractions that you can visit while in Las Vegas. There are actually enough to spend your entire vacation time here without paying a dime on a single attraction! Saving this kind of money, you could probably afford to give the blackjack table a visit or two.

When considering your next vacation, don't rule out majestic Las Vegas Nevada simply because you don't think you can afford it. As the old saying goes, some of the best things in life are free.
