Las Vegas is known for entertainment. You literally can't walk ten feet down the Strip without someone offering you tickets to a show, a guided tour, or other sorts of entertainment. Here are five ways to save money on entertainment in the city:
- Here's a list of 90 free and 10 inexpensive things to do for fun in Las Vegas. In addition to the stuff on this list, there are always random things happening around the city that are both entertaining and often free (like a parade that popped up a couple of days ago at the Linq or a free concert on the Fremont featuring famous singers and bands).
- It's a great idea to buy an Entertainment Book before you hit the city. It features hundreds of coupons for buy-one-get-one-free deals at restaurants and entertainment venues around the city.
- Tix4Tonight kiosks can be found all over the city. This is where you can buy same-day tickets for up to half off--it's usually a great deal on top shows!
- Locals can sign up for FillASeat and/or HouseSeats which for a flat annual rate (around $50 to $80 a year) gives you two free tickets to a range of shows each night. We've seen everything from no-name, pretty lame shows to top of the line shows that just needed a few more bodies to ensure that the audience was completely full.
- Volunteer! Many of the big events in Las Vegas (like the Electric Daily Carnival or Life is Beautiful) will trade a day's worth of volunteering for free passes to the rest of the event. I volunteered when the National Genealogy Society Conference came through town and got to sit in on many session that others paid hundreds of dollars to attend.
