5 Things to Experience at the Bellagio Hotel in Nevada, Las Vegas

Bucket List #31: See a spectacular fountain.  ((I saw the Most Spectacular Fountain at the Bellagio Hotel in Nevada, Las Vegas in January 2016.))

Background

The Las Vegas Strip is lined with upscale casino hotels. Each hotel has attractions, gambling floors, restaurants, and performances. The strip is one of the most iconic tourist destinations in the United States. One of my favorite hotels is the Bellagio, which was inspired by the villages of Europe. The elegant hotel is owned by MGM Resorts International. The construction costed $1.6 billion dollars and opened in 1998.

My Experience

In January of 2016, I visited Las Vegas, for an ASPI Promotional Products Trade Show for work and enjoyed my stay at the Wynn Hotel. While in Vegas,  I gambled, obviously!! But, I also experienced the most spectacular fountain of my entire life in front of the Bellagio Hotel. The Bellagio was my favorite because not only did they have a wonderful fountain display that I was in owe of, but they also had an incredible Cirque du Soleil show, entitled “O”, and the most beautiful garden. While I was there the garden was decorated for the Chinese New Year.

Listed are 6 things to do at the Bellagio Hotel!

  1. Watch the choreographed Fountains of Bellagio. The spectacular fountain display are set to light and music and is visible from multiple points on the strip. I highly recommend watching while in Las Vegas, as this was one of the most memorable moments due to the fact that the display was strikingly beautiful and eye-catching.
    • Show takes place every 15 minutes from 8pm to midnight and every 30 minutes in the early afternoon
    • The fountain displays more than 4,500 lights
    • Fountain costed $50 million to buildBellagio Las Vegas-Ultra HD.jpg15965784_10209899914467204_7808315846967295503_n
  2. Buy Tickets to the Cirque du Soleil’s production entitled “O”. The “O” was an unbelievable production, as the show incorporated acrobatics into synchronized swimming and diving surrounded by air, fire, and water. I highly recommend this quirky show, as the performance had moments of comedy, audience engagement, and live music. If you like weird shows that leave you wondering, “what did I just watch?” then the “O” is for you!!!
    • The show is 105 minutes long and plays at 7pm and 9:30pm Wednesdays through Sundays
    • Did you know the divers swim in a 1.5 million gallon pool?! The pool is kept at 88°F
    • Sign states no cell phones at the entrance. However, you can totally get by with a cellphone! (I did)
    • Book in advance from $114 here!lg_o-new-9b.jpglg_o-new-8b.jpg
  3. Visit the spectacular botanical gardens. The Bellagio hotel has a built in botanical garden that changes for each season. The five seasonal themes include the Chinese New Year, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. I visited the Chinese New Year displayed the zodiac sign of 2017, the rooster. All displays are colorful and decorated with flowers that have a pleasant and sweet smell that I will never forget.
    • Location. The Conservatory is located next to the hotel’s lobby and is open to the public.
    • Avoid Crowds. Wonder through the beautiful garden at 6:30am to avoid people.
    • Price. The magical Conservatory and Botanical Garden is FREE and 100% worth your time!
