6) Go Ice Skating

Believe it or not, you can actually enjoy the festive activity of ice skating in Las Vegas. During the winter, the Cosmopolitan opens up an ice rink where you can go skating with your family or loved ones.

Aside from the skating rink, there will also be snow showers every 30 minutes, fire pits to sit by, and plenty of great holiday treats to purchase.

 

 

In years past, this attraction has been available throughout the entire month of December, and it is usually open until midnight each evening.

While entry into the area is free, admission for ice skating will cost about $20 per person. That said, if you just want to enjoy the atmosphere, it won’t cost a thing to visit this location!


7) Attend the Great Santa Run

On December 7th, Opportunity Village will be hosting a holiday-themed race and every contestant will be dressed as Santa Claus.

In addition to the race itself, there will also be live entertainment, festive music and other fun activities to enjoy, as well as an after-party at the finish of the race.

 

 

The Great Santa Run will be taking place at the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas. The event will begin at around 8 am and run until at least 1:30 pm.

Even if you don’t feel like taking part in the race, you can always come and cheer on all the Santas who are participating for free!

NOTE: There is a walking tour of Fremont Street included with most major Las Vegas tourist passes.


8) Take the Kids to Bellagio Conservatory

During the holiday season, the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens gets decked out with festive decorations – often made with flowers and plants.

In years past, they’ve had displays with the Coca-Cola polar bears, and you can usually expect to see at least a few Christmas trees while you’re here.

 

 

This is one of the few areas of the Bellagio where children are actually welcome, and it’s entirely free for all families to enjoy.

The Bellagio Conservatory will be open for the holidays from December 7th – January 4th.


9) Celebrate the Holidays at The LINQ Promenade

If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit, a trip to the LINQ Promenade is definitely in order.

This public area turns into a winter wonderland every December, with plenty of fun activities to enjoy.

Visitors can expect a variety of festive decorations, carolers and holiday music, as well as a holiday show featuring singing and dancing every night.

These performances are entirely free to enjoy!

 

 

In addition to the holiday shows, the decorations, the music and everything else, the High Roller ferris wheel ride will be decorated for the season.

TIP: Admission to the High Roller ferris wheel is included with the Go Las Vegas Card at no extra cost.


10) Save Money With a Tourist Pass

No matter what types of activities you have planned while visiting Las Vegas, a tourist pass could help you save a lot of money.

The easiest option is to build-your-own-pass, which allows you to save 20% off two or more different attractions.

One of the best things about this service is that you don’t have to plan out too many activities.

 

 

All-inclusive passes are another option, and they provide access to dozens of different tours, shows, and museums for a specific amount of time (1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 days).

The only problem with this pass is that you have to use it for as many activities as possible while you have it in order to save a lot of money.

Flex passes allow you to pay one flat price for a set number of attractions (2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7).

While this type of pass can be useful for expensive activities, you might not save as much if you use it at locations that are already affordable.

If you’re looking for a pass that will save you a few bucks on tickets that are already cheap, consider a build-your-own-pass instead.

Here are some of the most popular attractions included with various Las Vegas tourist passes:

  • Las Vegas Strip Helicopter Tour
  • Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N.
  • LINQ High Roller Ferris Wheel
  • Hop-on-Hop-off Bus Tour
  • Las Vegas Segway Tour
  • Eiffel Tower Las Vegas
  • Criss Angel Mindfreak
  • Grand Canyon Tour
  • Madame Tussauds
  • Hoover Dam Tour
  • Planet Hollywood
  • Cirque du Soleil
  • The Mentalist
  • And more!

Depending on which pass you choose and how you use it, you can easily save anywhere from 20% – 50% off general admission prices.

For more information about these services and how they work, please read our post covering Las Vegas tourist passes.
