Downtown Freemont Street - the old strip. Lazer shows, each hour of the evening., we saw the 7pm, 8pm and 9pm show, they all had a different theme. The atmostphere is amazing. Did not want to leave. A trip around the hotels there is also a bonus as they are all so different- The Golden Nugget still have the biggest Gold Nugget in glass case for all to see. The food in lots of the Casinos are buffet style
There were little stalls and live music too which made it a very entertaining evening.
We went in 1997 and 2000 and was so amazing still second time around.i
Fondest memory: We were lucky with the Sunshine, There was great atmostphere everywhere, music, different free shows and the strip was so magical in the evening.
Each Hotel so different and unbelievable.
Favorite thing: Of course, the hotels on 'the Strip' are beautiful and have a very 'Vegas-atmosphere', but don't forget to go to Freemont Street. It's what used to be the center of Las Vegas before they built all the new hotels on the Strip. The whole street is covered with lights and every hour orso, there's is a fascinating lightshow. This is a picture of the 'ceiling' of that street.
Favorite thing: Did you know that this famous sign of Vegas Vic, which is located in Freemont Street is the largest mechanical neon sign in the world!
Favorite thing: we left this for our last night and I am glad I did not miss it. It was an experience, like the real Las Vegas with some of the most strange caracters I had only seen on films ;-) but more real
Favorite thing: Go to the Freemont-street in the evening and watch the film that is shown on a big 'screen' over the street!!
