more popular free attractions include:
Viva Vision – Located Downtown, a
giant screen over all of Fremont Street hosting nightly shows
usually every half an hour.
Bellagio Fountains – You can see the
dancing water show from nearly anywhere on the Strip, it’s even

volcano, but it is real fire and you can literally feel the heat

must see. Madame Tussaud’s is an amazing wax museum located in the
Venetian and has over 100 of the most realistic wax sculptures
you’ve ever seen. “Titanic” is also within the Luxor, and features
artifacts and recreations of the famed ship. If art is your thing,
