This show includes singing, dancing, sword fighting, pyrotechnics and even a sinking ship! The Sirens of TI runs a couple of times each night and draws a crowd, so get there a little early if you want a good view. This is definitely a free attraction worth checking out!

Aquarium at Mandalay Bay
The lobby of the Mandalay Bay Hotel hosts a 14' tall 12,000 gallon aquarium that is absolutely free to anyone. This saltwater take contains fish such as Puffers, Hawkfish, Angelfish, Soilderfish and more!

If you find yourself in Las Vegas between April and October its pool season! While some Las Vegas hotels have pools that are open year round, most close from the end of October to February or March. If you plan on spending a lot of time in the pool, stay at the hotel you plan to swim at. It is a great free activity providing you swim at your hotel. You may be able to swim at other hotels but some will charge you a fee to use their pool if you aren't a guest of that hotel, and others won't let you use their pool at all if you are not a hotel guest. Your best bet is to research different hotel pools and pick the one you would like to swim at the most and stay there.
