Sticking with the Bellagio, it is probably the one of the few hotel casinos that could provide family entertainment and still be inexpensive to do.
Besides the fountains out front, there is also the Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. It is something to see! Located right off the hotel lobby check in desk, it has plants and flowers, real and faux, designed to look like animals, other plants, and objects, depending on the theme.
The theme will change almost every other month if not sooner to keep in line with the season. You have Valentine’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Chinese New Year, Summer, etc. You could drop in almost every month to see something different.
Tip: Because this is free and in a convenient location, it gets very crowded in the early evening. Taking pictures can be a challenge as there are so many people, but most are courteous to stop to let you snap your memories. Later in the evening and late night will have a smaller crowd.
And to top it off with a dessert and something else to look at in awe, there is “the world’s largest chocolate fountain” in Jean-Philippe Patisserie located in the Spa Tower of the Bellagio.
You could watch as a continuous flow of light, medium and dark liquid chocolate flows from the upper level down to the lower levels. All of which prompts you to turn around and buy an ice cream cone or piece of chocolate candy from the adjoining store.
