Aside from strapping on water shoes and wading right in (which we assume you know is a bad idea and probably illegal), Spago has the best view you can find of the Bellagio fountains. Make a reservation on the patio and pause the conversation every 30 minutes while a massive amount of water shoots out of the ground. The menu is a bit all over the place, with Spanish-influenced appetizers, seafood towers, and homemade pastas, and can get pretty pricey. But it’s basically dinner and a show all wrapped up in one and you won’t have to put 17 tickets to Cirque du Soleil on your card for after.
