Downtown is lots of fun if you like to hear live music.The musicians and sideshows are fun to watch. The light show every night is awesome. The hotels are mostly old and run down, but the casino slots,in my opinion, really do pay out better than the Strip. My only complaint is how dirty it is downtown. Hotels ALL need... More

We came to see Fremont Street Experience which we liked, but the area itself had a carnival type feel. Parking was difficult to find. We managed to find parking at a local motel. Atmosphere was a bit trashy. Years ago it was a bargain here and you had a better chance of winning at the slots. This time I did... More

Be prepared to party. All action in every direction. A quite electric atmosphere. You have to be in the right mood to enjoy this experience. I was there with a group for my son's stag week. Enough said!!

If you are staying on the Strip, consider buying a bus pass (you can buy one for a day, 2 days, or more, and they aren't costly) and travel to the downtown area of Las Vegas. It is the original, old Las Vegas which has been redone to a closed main street with screened overhead "shade" to renovated hotels to... More

I visited downtown Vegas with someone in a wheelchair and even though everywhere is accessible with dropped kerbs and elevators the drunken revellers made it extremely difficult to get around. I actually lost my voice shouting "excuse" me at people because they were too drunk/oblivious to actually look where they were going and often stumbled into the wheelchair falling into... More

Kind of scary. The no-name casinos along Fremont St are desperate and on the verge of closing down. Binnions and Golden Nugget are cool and worth a look. Golden Nugget has an awesome pool with a shark tank also. On the actual Fremont Street you have the typical street vendors and characters.

Going to Freemont Street is a must when in Las Vegas! Many people overlook this part of town but it is simply amazing. It is full of life, music, people and attractions. You can just sit and watch and still have a great time. It is like Times Square!

I used to think downtown Vegas was dirty and scary, but they've done some upgrading. The zip lines on Freemont street have attracted more younger folks. The hotels are still the cheapest to gamble at so $3 craps and blackjack are always fun! I'm not sure I would be up for staying in the hotel though; still seems really old.... More
