Freemont Street Experience

Before my recent trip, I was told that Freemont wasn't all it is cracked up to be... I have to say, the most fun I had the entire weekend was enjoying my margarita and watching the light show with friends. Was also cool to see old Vegas, where it all began.

Thousands of tiny lights dance and move to music from Vegas Legends to Country, depending on the time of night and the show schedule for the month during your visit. All of the casinos dim their marquee signs for the show!

Admittedly, there are some seedy elements in the area, but with some common sense and street smarts, you can enjoy one heck of a party down there!

Get your picture taken in...

Get your picture taken in front of 100 rare $10,000 bills - that's a cool million dollars.
Not only is this photo opportunity a good souvenir from Las Vegas, it's FREE. 4PM to midnight.

I've been informed by another VT member that this is no longer on display as of at least 2 years ago due to a change of owners. Please let me know if you find out that it is redisplayed. Thanks.

the fremont street experience

we walked from our hotel riviera to the fremont street experience. it was a little bit far and to hot to walk. later we took a taxi back to the hotel.
it is a pedestrian promenade in the neon center of downtown.
the four blocks are covered with a canopy containing more than 2 million lights. there are seven different light and sound shows.
i liked the live music and the light and sound show like light my fire from the doors.
see Jim Morrison on the picture.

Downtown Las Vegas

Go see the Fremont Street Experience, a pedestrian street sheltered by an electric canopy on which a one of a kind sound and light show is performed. The light shows are presented every hour using 2 million lights and 540,000 watts of concert quality sound. On the street you'll also see the iconic Vegas Vic and Vegas Vickie neon signs. Additionally, there are a bunch of commercial outlets and kiosks where you can buy cheap souvenirs. Oh, and don't forget the hotels/casinos that line the street as well!

Fremont St

Don't miss the spectacular FREE show offered at every hour in the evening until 11pm. I simply marvelled at the optical effect of brilliantly coloured images created on the inside surface of the curved roof.

It never failed to bring smiles to eveybody's faces. Go watch it!

Fremont Street Experience

This "experience" that opened in 1995 is rather strange, but cool. There is a canopy of lights 90 feet above a four-block section of Fremont St. There are 2.1 million lights!!! Also, there are 180 strobes, 40 robotic mirrors, and 218 speakers. Every hour on the hour, the lights light up in a music / movie performance. Each performance lasts 6 minutes. There are 7 performances with different themes, all of which are free to see. Here are a list of starting show times:

Sun. - Thurs. (Dusk - 11pm)
Fri. - Sat. (Dusk - 12am

Fremont Street Experience

The Fremont Street Experience is an exciting car-free, pedestrian friendly adventure located in downtown Las Vegas. It's surrounded by casino/hotels that is beautifully landscaped and includes a misting system, retail carts, kiosks, and free mall entertainment. Plus to really amaze you, there is a "one-of-a-kind" light and sound show (presented each night at dusk).

Fremont Street Experience

What an amazing transformation the light display has made to downtown Vegas. The light shows are on the hour every hour at night and each one is different. My tip is get there on the hour, watch the show, then pop into Binions for a nice cold beer, then watch the next one, then back into Binions for another nice cold beer, then.....I think you get the idea.

Fremont Street

Yes, I know I included this as a tourist trap as well. It is, but that makes it worth seeing in its own right. Plus, there's the light and sound show. "The Fremont Street Experience" is the name given to this nightly series of shows that takes place in the covered "Glitter Gulch" of . . . well, crap . . . and on the ceiling overhead. There are millions of lights in the arched covering of the area, and speakers placed overhead all along the way. This allows for a somewhat overwhelming sound and light show that is a unique Vegas experience.

Otherwise, Fremont street is an area full of every junky tourist shop you've ever seen, and then some. Plus a few of the older hotel/casinos like the Golden Nugget. We did find a tasty restaurant there, Zax (a relatively new arrival in the Golden Nugget). You'll also find kiosk vendors and street performers here.

The Freemont Street Experience

Although the Strip is the most exciting and colorful part of Las Vegas, the old downtown core has some interesting casinos and attractions. My favorite area is Freemont Street which is host to a large overhead laser light presentation each night.
Part of Freemont has been covered with a high canopy and equipped with a state of the art sound and light show that makes getting a crick in your neck worthwhile. It's a riot of color, sound and images and the street action stops while everyone watches the presentation. There is no charge for the show because the downtown merchants and casino owners are hoping this will entice tourists (and their money) away from the Strip for a little while. The show is presented every half hour and each one of the three shows we stayed to see was different.

The street is blocked to traffic and there are street vendors and outdoor cafes and the whole area takes on a street party atmosphere. If you want to kill time between shows, look for signs for .99 shrimp cocktails or pop into one of the many casinos and tempt Lady Luck. The classiest of the downtown casinos is the Golden Nugget and it is located right on Freemont Street.

This area also has lots of neon signs and looks like the Vegas you see in the 70's movies.

More to do than you can shake a stick at!

You can't go anywhere in Vegas without finding something interesting to do or see. It's not really a family place seeing as how it's notorious for gambling facilities, however, there are a lot of shows and little street performers that are fun to watch.

Freemont Street

Freemont Street has gone through a complete renovation over the past decade. Go at night to check out the light canopy show. Its also a great place for low dollar tables, nickle slots, cheap rooms and even cheaper buffets.
