A refreshing addition to your entertainment options, the Fountains of Bellagio were destined to romance your senses. Take in a complimentary Las Vegas show of water, music and light thoughtfully interwoven to mesmerize its admirers. All for your amusement, the most ambitious, choreographically complex water feature ever conceived amazes against the beautiful backdrop of Las Vegas’ lavender sky. — Fountains of Bellagio

In the closing scene of Ocean’s 11 (2001), the group stand in front of the fountain at the Bellagio and reflect on the day’s events before one by one each wanders off into the night. It’s an effective way to end the day of their heist and an image that has always stayed with me.

The fountains are a professionally choreographed show that draw millions of people annually. The water dances and music plays and while watching some weep, many are inspired, some propose, and recently Time dubbed it #1 of the top things to do in Vegas.

It’s easy for me to write all of this, however the fountains are best experienced.
