The Fountains at the Bellagio

If you ever get to Las Vegas and are wanting some free entertainment then the Bellagio Fountains is a good place to start. They put on a show several times a day (mostly at night) and there is always someplace you can stand to see the show. It was interesting to see the show and maybe even more interesting to see the people coming to see the show.

According to information from the Bellagio website the fountains are "A refreshing addition to your entertainment options, the Fountains of Bellagio were destined to romance your senses. Take in a complimentary Las Vegas show of water, music and light thoughtfully interwoven to mesmerize its admirers. All for your amusement, the most ambitious, choreographically complex water feature ever conceived amazes against the beautiful backdrop of Las Vegas' lavender sky. Each dynamic performance from the Fountains collection is unique in its expression and interpretation. Fall in love with the stunning nature of this unprecedented aquatic accomplishment while relishing a clever concert of opera, classical and Broadway tunes."
