Recognizable to people all the world over, the Bellagio Fountains are an image synonymous with Las Vegas. The fountains put on a series of free shows daily that take place in the resort’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. “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 “greywater” 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, I thought it would be helpful to detail Bellagio fountain showtimes along with what songs are being featured currently.

Best Places to Watch the Bellagio Fountains
Sidewalks Surrounding the Show
Spanning over 1,000 feet in length, there’s plenty of space on the sidewalk between the lake and the Strip to take in the show.
Speakers are sprinkled about the sidewalk, making it one of the best spots to marvel at the choreographed dance.
Daytime shows are typically uncrowded and there will be plenty of real estate for you and your group.
If the crowds along the sidewalk are thick, you can escape the hoard by walking up the sidewalk toward Bellagio’s Porte Cochere to view the fountains from the resort side with Cromwell, Flamingo, Paris, and Horseshoe in the background.
Nearby Restaurants & Bars
Restaurants at Bellagio like Lago, Yellowtail, Spago, Picasso, Jasmine, and Le Cirque among others offer nice views as you enjoy your meal, some from an outdoor balcony.
My favorite (budget-friendly) spot to catch the fountains is sipping a beer across the street at Paris’ Beer Park rooftop bar which overlooks the fountains.
Here’s my full rundown of restaurants with a Bellagio Fountain view.
From Your Hotel Room
Rooms at Bellagio with a view of the Fountains are labeled as “Lakeview”, “Fountain View” and “Tower King Deluxe” on booking websites.
While Bellagio’s hotel tower offers some of the best views, other hotels in Las Vegas offer a Bellagio Fountain view including Vdara, Cosmopolitan, Paris, Caesars Palace, Flamingo, Horseshoe, and Planet Hollywood.

Many also wonder what happens to the coins tossed into the fountains. According to a Review Journal story, the coins are collected and distributed to local charities.

I’m a former software salesman turned Vegas aficionado. While the craps table is my preferred habitat, I pull myself away to explore new attractions, shows, restaurants, and outdoor activities around Las Vegas with the intent of sharing my experiences.
Ultimately, I just want to help folks plan a better trip and save a few bucks in the process.
