Why Booking a Room Downtown is Better Part 1: Fremont Street!
If you’ve vacationed in Las Vegas once, you probably know the setup. The Strip is a giant maze that’s not easy to explore (especially in heels). A taxi or the monorail is almost necessary if you want to see more than one end of the strip, and they’re expensive modes of transportation. The Strip has it’s own benefits and glamour, but if you’re looking for a smaller scale Vegas experience, downtown is blooming with culture, art, great food, and best of all, you can walk everywhere easily!
Fremont Street is a spectacle that’s worth seeing due to the giant LED screen canopy above that holds over 12 million lights! The Viva Vision light show runs every hour, starting at dusk and plays music to the awe and delight of all below.
Fremont Street also offers several opportunities for shopping, drinking and gambling. At Binion’s Casino, you can take a picture with a million dollars–for free! The D Casino offers classic slot machines, and their Longbar is a place to get a cocktail made with flair. 4 Queens Casino dates back to 1966 and gives a vintage feel with their neon signage.
If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, check out the Slotzilla Zip Line that will zoom you over the crowds down Fremont. The 77 foot tall Zipline flies you halfway down Fremont Street. The Zoomline start 114 feet up and flies you 1,750 feet all the way to the end of Fremont street, landing you at the historic Golden Gate Casino. For prices and tickets, click here.
