This makes my think of the old Las Vegas you see in the movies before the strip really expanded. I hope they preserve him and leave him on Fremont street. I'm afraid he will end up at the Neon Museum and off Fremont Street.

it was kind of sad to see him looming over a ratty souvenir store. A lot of his neon is out, too. He's a landmark, an icon of another era and he should be maintained as such

Fremont street experience and Vegas Vic, fun!!!!! Tons of stuff to see and do!!!!!! Be sure to visit all the gift shops and stop in all the casinos, and of course, the Fremont light show at night!!!!!!! If you go down to far past the El Cortez Hugh, gets a bit scary...stay clear of East Fremont.

Say "hello" to Vegas Vic when you visit Fremont Street- that's where he resides! He's been restored, so he still works tirelessly greeting visitors! Fremont Street really still does offer the old style Vegas neon experience- well worth experiencing! While you're there, consider dining options like Binion's Steak Ranch or Hugo's Cellar
