Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas

Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas (must see)

If you want to see something more of Las Vegas than the famous Strip, head for Downtown Vegas and the Fremont Street Experience – you won’t regret it.

This is one huge pedestrian mall with a barrel-vault canopy 90 feet (27 meters) high and 1,500 feet (460 meters) long. This amazing cover is held up by 16 columns, has 12 million LED lights and 220 speakers. It is a light and sound experience you’ll never forget. There are sound stages that host live concerts, souvenir kiosks where you can buy t-shirts, costume jewelry and hats, artists making cartoon sketches and spray-paint artists. A lot of people hang around dressed up as Elvis, Marilyn Monroe or other stars and celebrities and you can have your picture taken with them for a tip. Gambling halls and casinos line the Street, along with various bars and grills. However, top picks are the extremely entertaining fear attraction, Viva Vision, and the SlotZilla.

Why You Should Visit:
Fremont Street is the pedestrian street of downtown Las Vegas, still hosting some of the original casinos.
The SlotZilla Zip Line, where you will fly over the mall, is a not-to-miss experience.

Tip:
Try to find the free slot machines.
Although it is lively day and night, it gets more fun after dark.
