CHECK OUT THE EXHIBITS AT THE BELLAGIO CONSERVATORY & BOTANICAL GARDENS

This botanical garden is open to the public 24 hours / 7 days a week for FREE located at the Bellagio Hotel & Casino lobby. They change exhibits every now and then for different seasons and occasions. When we visited last October we saw the hotel's Fall Exhibit.

SEE THE FLAMINGOS AT THE WILDLIFE HABITAT

This habitat is open 24 / 7 at The Flamingo Las Vegas Hotel & Casino. I think the best time to visit is during the day to be able to enjoy the lush garden and see the koi's happily swimming in the water. This habitat serves as a refuge to these rescued animals. Who would have thought a lush garden complete with live animals exists at the heart of the Strip?

SEE THE ICONIC MAN-MADE VOLCANO ERUPT AT THE MIRAGE 

It feels like The Strip has evolve more into a theme park. On our way to The Venetian Las Vegas we passed by The Mirage Hotel & Casino which hosts the iconic man-made volcano spewing fire and water since the hotel's opening. I'm glad we saw it's eruption even though we didn't know the show's schedule on that day when we've visited The Strip. Talk about being at the right place at the right time. The volcano show lasts approximately 10 minutes and ends with a giant fire eruption 60 feet into the air. I think it'll be so much more spectacular to see the eruption at night.

EXPERIENCE VENICE AT THE VENETIAN LAS VEGAS

I have been to The Venetian Macao last 2010 with my bestie. You might want to check out my previous post : Things to Do in Macau. It won't hurt to revisit The Venetian 5 years later with my hubby on a different location. The Venetian Las Vegas has the look and feel of that of The Venetian Macao, after all they're on the same franchise.

If you want to get a taste of Venice at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, you might consider riding the gondola, although it's not for free. You'll be serenaded with the gondolier's operatic voices which you can also hear from the vibrant Venetian streetscapes pictured below.

EXPERIENCE AN INDOOR RAINSTORM AT MIRACLE MILE SHOPS

There's thunder, lightning, fog and outpouring rain inside a mall! Again, we happened to be at this location while having dinner. Never thought it'll rain inside a mall. Good timing for an outpour though. :D

SEE THE FAMOUS FOUNTAIN SHOW AT THE BELLAGIO

How could we miss The Bellagio's fountain show? Everytime I see a TV program about Las Vegas this fountain show is always featured. It's as if this has become the poster child for Las Vegas.

Did we enjoy our time at The Las Vegas Strip without spending excessively? Oh yes. We've passed by casinos but we didn't gamble. We're almost tempted to cashed out on expensive fine dining but I'm glad we didn't. In a city built for excess you can still enjoy The Strip without breaking the bank. We did sightseeing, took loads of photos, watched the free shows and still enjoy every minute of our visit. As they say the best things in life are free. Every moment is memorable and fun when you share it with the one you love and loves you even more back. ;)
