Las Vegas has a reputation for making fantasies a reality. Opportunities to fulfill every desire are at your fingertips and they won’t break the bank. Being a city of so much possibility can be overwhelming so we’ve compiled a list of things to do in Las Vegas on a budget to make the most out of your stay.
Great Las Vegas discounts and offers are to be had if you visit when there are no big events or conventions in town that can spike up the prices. July and August are good months to visit if you’re a fan of the heat. December can also be inexpensive with the exception of the National Rodeo Finals and New Year’s Eve festivities. It’s always best to stay during the week and you’ll tend to get a better deal Sunday to Thursday. As a rule, it’s always best to book in advance to get the best rate and with The Venetian and The Palazzo’s Best Rate Guarantee, elegance and luxury become affordable. Every hotel room is a suite, and if you see a better rate anywhere other than on our website, we guarantee to match it.Learn More

Just walking around The Venetian to take in the incredible art and architecture is one of the most awe-inspiring things to do in Vegas, and it’s free.Learn More

The gondolas run every fifteen minutes and at $29 per person it won’t break the bank.Learn More
