Free Stuff in Las Vegas is a lot better than high priced stuff in other cities. Nothing is free, right? Well, it is in Las Vegas. Free stuff is all over Vegas to get You to spend money in that location. As long as You keep that in mind then it really is free. But if You see the free rain show at Miracle Mile only to buy a 400 dollar purse on Your way out, then that rain show wasn't so free. If You are like Me You can get the free stuff without spending money.

You need a player’s card to get it but the players card is a good free souvenir that says 1906 club on it.

Free Entertainment on the Las Vegas Strip, You never know what You will find but for sure there will be something to choose from. Where else will You see Elmo, a bongo and bag pipe player in the same place?
People Watching, Las Vegas Strip, can You spot a beautiful lady with lots of money? Who is She? Is there a rich husband gambling big inside the Casino or is She the one with the money?
With more shows to choose from than any other City in the World, You might feel overwhelmed deciding on one. But if You narrow Your preference to a category, You can make Your decision much easier. If Your interest is in a Cirque du soleil show, why browse through the Comedy and Adult shows? If You want to see Britney or Mariah or JLo just browse the Concerts and headliners.
Don't like huge theaters and big crowds? Choose an afternoon Show for a much lower price.
A Dinner and Show combo is a great value and saves time to do other things that day.
