The iconic Fountains of Bellagio perform daily to music and  crowds that gather along the shores of this picturesque man made lake on the center of the Las Vegas strip.

I might be a bit of a romantic but watching the Fountains at Bellagio Las Vegas dance and captivate the audience does something to me. I forget about the bells and whistles of the casino floor and I feel removed from the tourists walking the strip with giant plastic cups holding 32 ounces of slushy alcoholic drinks.

The Fountains at Bellagio Las Vegas feel elegant and classy. They make me feel like I am the only person watching on the shore of the lake. They make me want to stand around and have a glass of Prosecco as I hug someone who makes me warm, comfortable and nervous inside.

Right on the Las Vegas strip every 30 minutes the Bellagio fountains give up a Las Vegas experience for free. Go ahead, just watch and enjoy and you might feel the magic as well.
