3 Things to Do for Free in Las Vegas: Seniors
Are you a senior living in Las Vegas and looking for free things to do? Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the free things to do in Las Vegas as a senior have changed. Before, most seniors would enjoy a day out at the casino and possibly a nice dinner at the buffet. That has all significantly changed after COVID-19, with most buffets closing down. At Heroes Caregiving, we will provide our seniors in Las Vegas with personal care services you can rely on. Whether you want a companionship partner for the day or you need transportation to and from your planned social activities, our caregivers are ready to provide you with reliable personal care.
In this article, we will highlight the top #3 things to do for free in Las Vegas if you are a senior.
1. Explore the Hoover Dam for Free
One of the most iconic landmarks to explore in Las Vegas is the Hoover Dam, and it’s free, for the most part. If you want to get out and enjoy a nice drive and explore Las Vegas’ water source, the Hoover Dam is a great place to visit. Our caregivers will accompany you on your journey to the Hoover Dam, creating endless memories with you.
The Hoover Dam does offer guided tours, however these tours are not free, and will come a low cost to each person participating. However, if you want a simple drive through the Hoover Dam to escape the “hustle and bustle” of the city, feel free to contact our staff today and hire a caregiver to join you!
2. Explore Red Rock Canyon for Free
Another fantastic get-a-way is to drive the Red Rock Canyon Road, which is only a 20 minute drive the Las Vegas Strip and is free. Red Rock Canyon is known for its’ scenic 13-mile drive and 26 hikes and trails. You can still enjoy this beautiful scenery for free by traveling down Red Rock Canyon Road.
If you travel to Red Rock Canyon from the South, you will pass a small quant town on your left side, known as Blue Diamond. However, if you aren’t paying attention to the signs, it is quite easy to miss. As you continue to travel north on Red Rock Canyon, you will see the entrance to the Red Rock Scenic Drive. In order to access this area, you will have to pay a small fee to gain entry. Once inside, you will be in awe of the beautiful nature Southern Nevada truly has to offer.
Taking this drive might seem like a “task”, and that is why our caregivers are there to assist you. If you would like to get out for the day and explore the Red Rock Canyon, call us today and allow our caregivers to provide you with transportation and companionship. Now that we have explored the free beautiful nature Las Vegas has to offer, let’s take a look at the iconic Las Vegas Strip.
3. Explore the Las Vegas Strip for Free
As a native Nevadan, being born and raised in Las Vegas, I tend to take the Las Vegas Strip for granted. However, when I stop and think about the free attractions the strip has to offer, I am reminded how blessed we truly are. The Las Vegas Strip still offers free shows and can be enjoyed by seniors, as they are easily accessible by wheelchair and ramps. If this sounds exciting, keep reading and you’ll learn the true cost for this amazing attraction.
The Fountains of Bellagio is in the center of all the action. The show hosts a wide variety of classic songs, brining a whole new meaning to the word “art.” The Fountains of Bellagio is easily accessible and times vary depending on the time of year. The best part about this attraction, it’s FREE. There is never a charge to enjoy the beautiful displays of art and fountains.
