Every evening at 10:00 pm you can go and sit on your boat or take a chair and sit and enjoy the evening by the water and enjoy watching and listening to the lights, colors of the water dance to the music.

I wish it was a bit longer...I know, it's free, but I'd rather pay a few $ and get more of it. I like the songs, and I heard they change the playlist every day.

I've been to Vegas twice, both times missing the water fountain show at the Bellagio, so this was my chance. They started off strong with music from the Tron Legacy soundtrack, but then the music changed and we started to get bored with it. We...More

The fountain is at the base of a tall dune on the north shore, that puts you either at the top of the dune, or on the wrong side to see it.I believe the top of the dune is inacessable. Sorry.

Fountain viewing is free .. you sit on the river bank on the opposite side of the Grand River. If you a lucky enough to get a seat on Snug Harbor's deck, you can see the fountain show from there.
