Iconic hotel casinos line Fremont Street, an area many refer to as “old Vegas.” The hotels are quite different from what you will find today on Las Vegas Boulevard. These casinos are much smaller than those on the Las Vegas Strip, but they are locations filled with charm and history. Besides being able to stay and play at these casinos, Fremont Street is filled with entertainers and vendors. Pedestrians will find many unique choices of souvenirs in this open-air mall.
Three stages along Fremont Street host many concerts throughout the year, most of which are free. Slotzilla is another entertaining feature of Fremont Street. Slotzilla visitors can choose between two zip lines that zoom above Fremont Street. Trips down the lower zip line cost $25. A ride down the upper line, which reaches 40 miles per hour, costs $45.
One of the best features about Fremont Street is its light show, and because of this, you will want to be sure to plan your visit so that you are on Fremont Street during the evening. Around dusk, the Fremont Street light show begins. Every hour from about dusk to midnight, permanent video screens come to life above the street. Ninety feet above Fremont Street is a video screen that is 1,500 feet long and 90 feet wide. Popular music plays as 12.5 million LED lights illuminate in the most fantastic designs and shapes! No Fremont Street Experience is complete without witnessing this technological marvel.
