Recognizable to people all the world over, the Bellagio Fountains are an image synonymous with Las Vegas. The fountains put on a number of free shows daily that take place in Bellagio’s 8.5-acre man-made lake which is located between the resort tower and Las Vegas Blvd. Lurking just below the water’s surface are over 1,200 individual sprayers that are capable of shooting water over 460 ft in the air. Three types of sprayers utilized, Minishooters, Extremeshooters, and Supershooters are stationary and fire water vertically, while Bellagio’s Oarsmen sprayers move around and do the “dancing”.
Although many believe the lake and fountains utilize reclaimed water from the resort, the actual source is an underground well previously used to water the Dunes golf course.
As a Las Vegas landmark, the water show is the scene of countless selfies, marriage proposals, and even weddings. Every once in a while, an “over-served” tourist even jumps in for a quick swim that typically doesn’t end well for the perpetrator.
As one of the most popular free activities in Las Vegas, many guests time their visit to catch a show. With that in mind, we thought it would be helpful to detail Bellagio fountain show times in 2021 along with what songs are being featured currently.

Where to Watch the Bellagio Fountains
Spanning over 1,000 feet in length, there is plenty of space on the sidewalk between the lake and the Strip to take in the show. Daytime shows are typically uncrowded and there will be plenty of real estate for you and your group.
Restaurants at Bellagio such as Lago and Scarpetta offer nice views in addition to your meal. Our favorite spot to catch the fountains is sipping a beer across the street at Paris’ Beer Park rooftop bar which overlooks the fountains.
If the crowds are thick, escape by walking up the sidewalk toward Bellagio’s Porte Cochere to view the fountains from the resort side with Cromwell, Flamingo, Paris and Bally’s in the background.
Rooms at Bellagio with a view of the Fountains are labeled as “Lakeview”, “Fountain View” and “Tower King Deluxe” on booking websites.
