6 Free Things To Do Off The Las Vegas Strip

There are never too many things to do in Vegas – especially when they’re free! There are a lot of things to do in Vegas for little money (here are 15 under $20) but if you have a rental car there are a lot of free things to do just a few minutes off the beaten path. Here are 6 free activities to enjoy off the Vegas Strip.

1. Pinball Hall Of Fame – The Pinball Hall Of Fame isn’t as much a museum as it is a play space with games throughout history for you to learn about and explore. The Pinball Hall Of Fame is 10,000 square feet made of of pinball and arcade games that you can play. There are games as “new” as Super Mario Brothers from 1985 along with wooden pinball games from the 1940’s. This is a fun way to spend a day off the beaten path. Any profits made from the games goes right back into the Hall of Fame.

2. Aquarium (Silverton) – The Aquarium at Silverton Casino is a few miles south of the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef exhibit and totally free to watch. It’s a cool place to visit when you’re hanging out in the casino but the daily fish feeding (1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.) and mermaid show (about every 30 minutes) offer some fun to the giant fish tank in the middle of the casino. The Shark Reef may be a mammoth exhibit but the Aquarium at Silverton is free, interactive and right on the casino floor.

3. Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Botanical Cactus Garden Tours – You’ll have to drive about 10 miles away from the Vegas Strip to A) visit this chocolate factory and b) drive through the Botanical Cactus Garden but these free activities are both unique and something you won’t be able to experience elsewhere – especially not together. During the holiday season the Cactus Gardens are open at night for a Botanical Cactus Holiday show that you’ll definitely never see anywhere else.

4. Fremont Street Experience – The Vegas Strip may be the most popular part of Vegas but when you head downtown you’ll find one of the brightest places in Vegas. The Fremont Street Experience offers free nightly shows on its canopy which is made up of almost 13 million lights. The 15 light shows on the canopy run every hour but are only part of the free Downtown Vegas experience. The light shows are often breaks in between free concerts and other special events. This is a great way to spend a night in Vegas on a budget.

5. Mystic Falls Park (Sam’s Town) – Mystic Falls Park is located inside of Sam’s Town Casino and is one of the best “hidden in plain sight” free attractions in Vegas. You can take a nice leisurely stroll in the park day or night and relax to the sound of a rolling waterfall and birds chirping in the live trees which are look up toward the skylight 10 stories above the park area. Every day there are laser light shows every other hour between 2pm and 10pm.

6. First Friday – The first Friday evening each month the Arts District in Downtown Vegas throws a party from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. The streets are open and art is on display for all to see. In addition to are there are a variety of vendors plus live music and activities. This isn’t an adults only party as the KidZone has free carnival games and an exotic petting zoo. Even better than renting a car you can grab a free shuttle from El Cortez and the Golden Nugget to and from the Arts District.
