THINGS TO DO FOR FREE IN LAS VEGASWe spent a week in Las Vegas and apart from food we enjoyed free sightseeing the entire time we were there.THE BELLAGIO FOUNTAIN SHOWThis takes place throughout the day and is different each time so try and catch it at least twice. The night time shows include lights where the daytime the lights are not so spectacular but the fountains and music are choreographed perfectly. Get there a bit early especially if you are there in holiday times as it does get busy.BELLAGIO CONSERVATORYThis is like a sort of mini flower show within the hotel. They change it from season to season so if you have been one year then it...Read More

Story/Tip

Bargain Buffet deal in Las VegasMy children were going to treat us to a meal out while we were in Las vegas but so many were so expensive. I spotted this deal run by Caesars Entertainment.

Hash House A Go Go IMPERIAL PALACE, LAS VEGAS, 3535 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109When we were in Las Vegas last year my daughter and her partner were keen to visit this place as they are fans of ‘Man Versus Food’ and this was one of the places he had visited. It took us a little while to find it as it was hidden in a casino and upstairs which wasn’t entirely obvious.They state their aim is to:"We keep the fun in food while pulling from the experiences of farm fresh agriculture, live stock, and old recipes with a twist. We maintain a level of excitement & entertainment within the dining experience, while ensuring excellent service each & every day."...Read More

This is a pretty large complex and has self catering suites and also normal hotel rooms.CHECKING IN:The reception area is beautiful, huge with high ceilings and an enormous statue of three rearing horse in the centre. It is marble, gold and glass and very sumptuous looking. The reception desk was all along one side and there were always about a dozen mem...Read More
