Stayed on the Strip on a recent visit to Vegas and loved everything about it, the hustle and bustle, the lights, the shows etc etc. But we ventured downtown for the Fremont Street experience as we heard this was the 'real' Vegas, however for us it was a complete letdown. The experience itself was great as were the assorted shows,... More

The light show on every hour till midnight is a wonderful, FREE way to enjoy Sin City. The people watching is amazing, just don't talk with those that look a bit strange. There are some free drink coupons to be had and the Golden Gate Hotel/Casino still has the cheap, but good shrimp cocktail, and The Fremont Hotel also. ENJOY....you'll... More

Where else do you get to see interesting characters, hear great live music and drink cheap Las Vegas drinks all under one 'roof'. I prefer to stay on the Strip but always have to visit Freemont Street to complete our Vegas experience. Some of the characters you are seeing are a bit risqué and I am sure some people don't...

If you're staying on the strip, don't forget to head Downtown. Maybe not as glamorous as the strip but well worth the visit. The best time to visit is night time, really comes alive.

The first time I went to Vegas in 2007, I stayed at the Excalibur. I took a night tour that included Downtown Vegas and that was it for me. Since then I've gone back 3 times and stayed at the Four Queens. I love Vegas Downtown. The vibe is great. The music, especially Carl Ferris, is free and fantastic. The... More

What a difference to the strip. No trip to Vegas would be complete without a night out downtown. It is easy to jump on a deuce bus on the strip to get downtown and jump off at the very last stop.

Now that Zappos is down town and no longer in Henderson, NV, the Fremont Street and surrounding area has totally improved! Not only is Fremont street longer than it ever was, but the safety & cleanliness is fantastic! We are thrilled to see that this area is finally reaching it's potential and that the d/t area is going to be... More

If you are looking for a less expensive side of Vegas and whole lot more eccentric then head downtown. A lot of very interesting people on the main broadway that is covered by giant LED screeen that plays music videos periodically through the evening. There were several stages with live music and all kinds of street performers. Most of the... More

My first trip to Vegas was in 1971. I have returned several times over the years. The city is so much better now due to the ability of the traveler to visit the old Vegas and the new Vegas in one trip . The views and venues change constantly and make each trip new and exciting. There are hotels and... More
