The Vegas Vic cowboy neon sign will be familiar to anyone who has seen images of Vegas before The Strip started to take over in the eighties. Vic's a little sad now as his location on the exterior of the Pioneer Club has been covered by the light canopy of The Fremont Street Experience, but it's still a thrill to... More

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

My father Zack Hale now 86, was hired in 1969 by the owners of The Pioneer Club Tommy Elardi and his mother Margaret. He was the host from 1969-1975.

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
