I recently returned from a weekend-long vacation in Las Vegas. Over the past few days I’ve been discussing inexpensive ways to enjoy Vegas from the airfare, car rental, lodging and food and today talking about entertainment. There is never a shortage of entertainment in Las Vegas. Whether its people watching on the strip or on Fremont Street, taking in a show, watching a bride and groom and their wedding party celebrate the joyous occasion. Entertainment
I was never one for shows in Las Vegas. When I first turned 21 all I wanted to do was gamble. As I got older my interest turned from gambling to the shows. Shows can be very expensive if purchased directly from the box office. A website that I stumbled upon several years ago has saved me money and allowed me to see shows that 1) I never knew they existed or 2) shows that I normally wouldn’t watch. This website www.vegas4locals.com offers coupons for shows, dining and nightlife, tours, attractions, hotel, health and wellness, shopping, wedding and event and services and products.
Some examples of the savings from this website include free ticket to a show with a two drink minimum or 2-for-1 admission. If it’s a 2-for-1 admission my fiancée and I will split the cost of the one ticket, let’s say $50, whereas we both only pay $25. We’ve seen everything from magic shows, impersonator shows, game shows, and so on…shows we normally would not see. Another great website is www.cheapovegas.com/promo-shows. This website offers percentages off shows such as Jabbawockeez, Cris Angel, Rock of Ages, O, and Love.
Additionally, upon check in at your hotel ask the clerk at the front desk for coupons or show specials. Many hotels also offer 2-for-1 show deals or dramatically reduced show rates.
