Question. Fremont Street experience taxi drop-off and hours

I haven't been to Fremont Street very much. Last time I went after the mystere show at TI. I told the person who helps get a taxi "Frelemont Street please " the guy then tells the taxi driver "Fremont Street experience" I was thinking oh I'm such a tourist for just saying Fremont Street but glad that the taxi helper knew where I wanted to go. We get in the cab, taxi driver is fine, when we get close though he asks me "so where would you liked to be dropped off" and I say umm just want to walk around Fremont Street. He seems confused, not sure where to drop me off. He is looking and looking then he stops somewhere like right on the sidewalk for Fremont Street and says "ok get out quick I'm not supposed to park here" that was fine, we were where we wanted to be but I felt like some how there was some kind of disconnect about where I wanted to go and where this taxi should drop us off.

Questions : Next time do I tell the cab driver I want to go to a specific hotel on Fremont Street instead of just saying Fremont Street? Or was the taxi driver not experienced?

Random question about Fremont Street, what are the "hours" of fun. Meaning crowds, bands etc. I'm guessing during the day it's a ghost town.

We got a cab to Fremont from the Belagio and just told the driver Fremont St. We were dropped about half a block off the street on one of the side roads. Worked fine

Sam, excuse me for being a tourist and not knowing where to go. He knew I wanted to go to Fremont Street experience, what more explaining do I need to say. That's why I asked if next time do I say a specific hotel? Good thing I know more about Fremont Street hotels and I can say one, on this past trip I honestly did not know the name of any.

We almost always head towards Hugo's Cellar, so we tell the driver Four Queens. But you could say Golden Nugget, and this would be easy for even a new driver to find.

We always start off at Main Street Station...sit in the brewpub for some good beer and good eats and then head on over to FSE....it's a good place to "pre-game" lol

Golden Nugget. Right in the middle, and someplace you'll visit anyway. Good cab drop-off area close to the FSE.

It's less crowded during the day for sure, but it's not like there are tumbleweeds blowing down the sidewalk. Everything's open, and the casinos aren't empty. Check the schedule on the website for the specific schedules of the canopy shows and bands, but my recollection from last week is that it starts to pick up early evening (~6pm-ish).

One of my favorite times is dawn on Fremont. I like playing craps from 4am - 8am and walking around between the different casinos as the sun comes up...eating a quick breakfast and watching people finally go home for the night or on their way to work. A very different Vegas experience. You just have to avoid the slobs on the street hitting you up for cash.

Golden Nugget works really well, as the drop off is close to FSE, and the cab drivers can easily get in line for another fare if they want. It is also an easy spot to grab a cab back to the strip.
