The Fountains of Bellagio

The Fountains of Bellagio

High up on the list of beautiful and spectacular sights that are a must-see for every Las Vegas visitor of any age are the Fountains of Bellagio. As an added treat, this is one of the few shows in Vegas that is not only G rated from start to finish, but absolutely free! Furthermore, every show is synchronized to different music, so you and your kids can take in the spectacle again and again. The music runs the gamut from old standards by the likes of Sinatra, Elvis, the Beatles, and Michael Jackson to the latest electronic dance music from Tiesto. Or you might be treated to a show tune or classical music. If your kids are into different kinds of music, they will probably recognize and be able to tell you not only a particular song's artist, but also its title.

Exact performance times vary with both the season and day of the week. This is the schedule that currently appears on the hotel's website.

    Weekdays:
  • Every half-hour beginning at 3 p.m. and ending at 8 p.m.
  • Every 15 minutes between 8 p.m. and midnight.
    Saturdays and holidays:
  • Every half-hour between noon and 8 p.m.
  • Every 15 minutes between 8 p.m. and midnight.
    Sundays:
  • Every 15 minutes between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Every half-hour between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  • Every 15 minutes between 8 p.m. and midnight.

The reason for the additional fountain show times on Sunday between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. is to accommodate those who are enjoying the Sunday brunch at Jasmine, whose outdoor patio offers a prime viewing location. Alternatively there are many other locations just outside the hotel from where you and your kids can see the show. Surely you will want to take some family photos with the fountains in the background while the show is in progress.
