Things to Do in Las Vegas During the Day

Las Vegas is known for its incredible nightlife, but when you’ve planning an affordable vegas vacation, you’ll also want to fill your days with fun activities that won’t break the bank. This article will cover a number of fun things to do in Las Vegas during the day. Many of them will be completely free of charge, while others might cost a a little bit of money.

Either way, though, it’s much better to approach your daytime activities with a clear plan, rather than simply shelling out the cash to do whatever catches your eye. Always remember that in Vegas, the more expensive attractions are typically much more noticeable and obvious, while it takes more effort and planning ahead in order to find the discounts. That said, here are some ideas for things to do during the day.

  • Visiting Museums: There are also a number of museums in Vegas that you can tour for free, including an outdoor walking tour at the open-air Neon Museum. You could also head over to the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Natural History, located on the UNLV campus. Another free option that’s among our favorites is the unique Pinball Hall of Fame which has over 250 machines representing every stage in the historical development of pinball.
  • Red Rocks Canyon: If you want to take a day trip and get some exercise (perhaps after partying a bit too late the previous night…) you can head out to Red Rocks Canyon and hike some awesome trails. You can get a whole day’s enjoyment out of the scenic landscapes, and all it should cost you is a nominal car fee.
  • Taking a walk down the strip: This one might sound incredibly simple, but it can be an adventure in and of itself simply to walk up and down the strip and take in all the sights and sounds. Best of all, you obviously don’t have to pay to use the sidewalk!
  • There are also a number of exciting free attractions in the big hotels on the strip, including The Fountain in Caesar’s Palace, the Flamingo Wildlife Habitat, The Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, The Lion Habitat at the MGM Grand, The Shark Reef at Mandalay Bay, Rock and Roll Memorabilia at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, just to name a few.
  • Finally, you could visit Las Vegas Chinatown to experience a whole different culture right in Vegas. From the official website, it is describes as a “colorful and unique Tong Dynasty architecture eclectic of Asian cultures and features Las Vegas’ largest concentration of Asian businesses to meet your every fancy.”

These are just a few ideas for things you can do during the day in Vegas at little or no cost. Be sure to let us know in the comments if you have any more good suggestions.

And finally, if you have a full night’s slate of activities planned, you might also want to consider squeezing a quick nap into your schedule.
