As you drive down The Strip, it’s hard to miss the Bellagio Fountains. This is perhaps one of the coolest free attractions on The Strip. You have a couple of options for seeing the fountains in action. If you happen to be walking, you can get a great view of the show from the sidewalk in front of the Bellagio lake. This is a great way to see the show and you have the Bellagio in the background.
Another option is to park at the Bellagio and then walk down the sidewalk from the main entrance. Parking at the Bellagio is tricky because there are two valets. One is on the right side of the casino and then the main entrance is off The Strip, but it’s very easy to miss the driveway. It’s ideal if you can park at the main valet and then walk down the sidewalk and find a spot to watch the show from there. If you do end up in the other valet, you’ll have to walk through the casino to the hotel lobby and you’ll see the main entrance there. However, the casino is beautiful, so a little stroll through it to the lobby is a sight itself and while you’re in there, you might as well see The Conservatory and the Dale Chihuly glass flowers on the ceiling in the lobby. Even the area behind the front desk is amazing. The Bellagio pulls out all the stops when it comes to decorating, especially around Christmas. If you see the fountains from this angle, you’ll have Bally’s and the Eiffel Tower at Paris in the background. It looks a little something like this:
The fountain show is open Weekdays 3pm-12am; Weekends 12pm-12am.
