Wander the streets under a canopy of light shows mingling with a stream of characters and street performers, shop for Las Vegas bargains and enjoy mouth-watering gourmet pizza at Fremont Street.
Frisky R-rated Fremont Street Experience
Go after sunset and stay late to get the full R-rated Fremont Street Experience. Casual and free, the pedestrian mall spans five blocks and recreates the feel of the original, historic Las Vegas. Nostalgic neon signs from the era when gangsters and Hollywood types mingled line the street.
What’s There to Do? Look up!
Brave hearts can soar over a couple of blocks on a zip-line originating at the world’s largest slot machine, Slotzilla. Those of you who prefer to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground have plenty of other entertainment options that are literally all around you. Look above to see the unique, constantly changing Viva Vision shows featuring two million flashing LED lights and 550,000 watts of sound.
People watching is almost a full-time activity, whether you do it on the streets, from a seat at one of the many outdoor bars or through the windows of the souvenir shops. Street performers are sprinkled throughout the area, including singers and guitarists, and you may even see a flexible man fold himself into a box. The area is definitely full of characters, many of them actually in costumes such as Batman and Darth Vader.
Look Nearby. It’s Vegas, Baby!
Nothing shouts “Vegas” more than casinos, and some casinos feature old time slot machines that spill out coins as well as table games requiring lower minimum bets than on The Strip. The recently refurbished Plaza hotel is a great place to wrap up your visit, followed by a late-night snack featuring some authentic Las Vegas Fremont street pizza.
