The fact that they are tearing all the old stuff down & the stuff they replace it with is usually not as attractive - Vegas Vic is always great to see! Classic Las Vegas!

My first time in Las Vegas was 1952 with my uncle and brother. I remember Vegas Vic as we stayed downtown. Downtown were it all was. Now almost 55 years later he still stands and greets folks on Fremont Street. When downtown say "howdy" to Vic.

Vic stands over Fremont street where the Freemont experience is located. He has been standing there since 1951. The sign currently is outside of a souvenir shop. If you were going for the experience, definitely see it. Otherwise, it is not worth making a separate trip for.

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.
