A little 'old school'

Wow, just old school Vegas, not worth the trip just for this but the whole experience - awesome. When on Fremont Street, look up!

Vegas Vic the cowboy greeting you at Fremont street used to mean Las Vegas to me as a kid. Of course when I first came to Vegas I saw the Vegas of the strip but going to Fremont Street and seeing Vegas Vic, I really felt that I had arrived.

This is one of my favorite things to do in all of Las Vegas. The casinos and all the signs around here are so iconic of what Vegas used to be like. This is definitely a very cool place to walk around at night when the signs are all light up!

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. He stood on the main floor, which I remember as being super small, in front of a band and had a microphone talking to all the people walking by telling them... More

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
