Even as extant as 10 years ago, you could still find dollar shrimp cocktails and bargain buffets both on and off the Strip. And while the entertainment possibilities in Las Vegas are more varied than ever (selfie museums or indoor skydiving, anyone?), They are also more expensive. Follow our guide to dining and entertainment and enjoy 24 hours in Las Vegas for only $ 20 or less.
Where to go for breakfast
While the South Point Hotel and Casino is about a 15-minute drive from the Las Vegas Strip, the trip may be worth the money you can save on a delicious breakfast buffet. For less than $ 10 (with a player card) you can enjoy a separate breakfast buffet.
Buffets on the Strip can easily cost you between $ 20 and nearly $ 80 per person, making the Garden Buffet one of the best bargains in town.
Where to go for lunch
Ocean One Bar and Grill
This means that for less than $ 5.00, you can choose from everything from a half-pound sirloin burger or grilled salmon salad to penne pasta or skirt steak marinated in cabernet sauce, and more. Beers are only $ 3 and cocktails are subjectively inexpensive (only $ 10 each).
Where to go sightseeing
Calico Basin Trail
Las Vegas casinos offer a sequence of free attractions, such as the Bellagio Fountain Show or the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens, but if you are trying to find yourself exploring away from the tourist corridor, Calico Basin is an amazing choice. However, unlike the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, which charges a fee to enter, the Calico Basin is 100% free.
Where to go for an afternoon drink
The Bird Bar is a fun space to go to, even if you're not a heavy drinker, thanks to the style of the bartenders, as well as the bar's location on the Strip (the patio is great for people-watching).
However, the main attraction of the Bird Bar is its particular Happy Hour. This is easily one of the best happy hours on the Strip and an unheard of bargain for a locality where $ 10 beers are commonly the rule.
Where to go for dinner
Tacos El Gordo
Tacos El Gordo was a local favorite for inexpensive, authentic Mexican food since it first opened in Las Vegas in 2010.
Tacos and tostadas start at just $ 2.00, however other menu items are equally affordable, with costs ranging from $ 4.00 for quesadillas (with meat), sopes and mules, and $ 10 for fries with carne asada.
Where to go for a drink at night
Ellis Island Brewery
The brewery serves 6 permanent beers, as well as some seasonal beers, and has been voted "Best in Las Vegas" for 2 years in a row by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. But luckily, they still serve 20-ounce beers for only $ 2.50.
Where to watch live music for free
It is worth going to the 6-block stretch of historic downtown Las Vegas that encompasses the "Fremont Street Experience" for those who see the population alone.
However the biggest eye-catcher happens each night at 6pm as bands and DJs take the stage to perform in front of the crowd. Performances go on into the wee hours of the morning and feature everything from 90s cover bands to country singers, techno DJs and more. Fremont Street has 3 stages, so if you are not fascinated by the melody on a stage, you can easily move around.
Several of the bands that played Fremont Street in 2021 have featured Plain White T's and 3 Doors Down.
