The Forum Shops is a massive 160 specialty store complex, adjacent to the Caesars casino.

Exploring the gorgeous Roman style architecture of this luxury resort is a must on any trip to Vegas. It’s fun, it’s free, and there are endless photo opportunities!
It’s part of your hefty resort fees, so be sure to spend the day lounging around – a great way to save money and cool down for a bit after all that walking in the hot sun! Vegas hotels are home to some of the country’s best pools. The Mirage, featuring several waterfalls and a relaxing tropical theme, is one of the best!
While you could pay tons of money to experience fabulous views from The Stratosphere, the Eiffel Tower Experience, and the new Linq Ferris Wheel, you can also experience some budget friendly views right by the Planet Hollywood casino. Just go up the escalator and take in the dazzling night views (for free!).
This research facility inside the MGM Grand gives you the opportunity to give your personal feedback regarding pilots for potential TV shows.

Another fun, free attraction to check out is the Flamingo Habitat, a tropical oasis of exotic birds, plants, turtles, and flamingos on the resort’s 15 lush tropical acres. The habitat offers lots of unique photo opportunities, not to mention a great opportunity to escape the city congestion and get into nature for a bit.
Vegas is home to one of the few replicas of the Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower, amongst many others. The half size Eiffel replica is definitely the standout; the views at night are spectacular!
