Las Vegas: Bellagio dancing fountains retuned PDF Print E-mail

Not everything in Vegas is gambling and nudie shows. There’s a location there for both contemplation and music listening. Walking along the sidewalk in front of the Bellagio  fountains at night is one of the great free experiences in Las Vegas.

When we did it recently, the musical accompaniment was Frank Sinatra singing, “Luck be a Lady”. It was as if Frank himself were strolling with us along Las Vegas Boulevard. The fountains rose a hundred feet into the air,  then danced and swayed in rhythm with the music.

Just recently, the Bellagio completely revamped the fountain experience. Now, for the younger strollers, another musical numbers may be something more contemporary, such as the Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.” and Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.”

Seniors shouldn’t worry about Sinatra’s songs disappearing from the Bellagio fountains. He’ll continue to serenade strollers, along with other crooners of his era, as well as some classical and Broadway tunes.
