If you can't afford to stay on the Strip or are simply looking for a free (cheap) experience then this is the place to be. The clientele seem a little less polished than the masses on the strip and it seemed as if I was caught in the smoke of a cigarette factory.

Make sure you go At night as they have fantastic shows at he top of the hour. One of the highlights of our Vegas journey and thoroughly recommend to one and all.

The light show is fun and worth a visit but overall I was not overly impressed with this area. There are many beggars and too many people dressed in costumes trying to get tourists to take pictures with them. We visited on 28 December and there was a DJ on one end near the Plaza hotel spinning tunes and scantily clad dancers in front the California casino--tacky and cold for these dancers!

There is zip lining now, which plenty of people seemed to be doing but which also detracted from the overall view of the light show since people continued to do this as the light show was playing.

For future visits to Las Vegas I doubt I'll go down to this area.

This is supposed to be the biggest screen in the world. I'm not sure of that claim.

It is a curved screen over the fremont street walkway that stretches for 2 city blocks. They play a 10 min. show ever hour. Most are music themed. It is something to see.

Fremont st. is where the old Las Vegas casinos are. The famous Cowboy, Golden Nugget, etc. It is straight up the strip but take a cab; It's a long way! Don't wander to far off fremont st. though, it's not the best part of town.

Many tourist shops and casinos to choose from here. Also, they have a zip-line ride above part of the walking area.

pros: unique, free, shows hourly, zip-line ride

cons: far away from the rest of the strip casinos and hotels, not the best part of town

We went on Christmas Eve and the place was buzzing. There were 3 bands playing along the street. It was very nice.

There are several souvenir shops. The food is also a lot cheaper than on the street. Buffets start at about $13.

The Deuce bus runs there from the Strip. It's the last stop on the line. This literally drops you at the start of Freemont Street. It cost is about $8 per day. There was no one way ticket and there was another $6 for 2 hour ticket. We went at night and due to the traffic, it took about 50 minutes one way alone. The SDX bus also runs and picks up right in the middle of the street at Golden Nugget. But this bus is generally busier than the the Deuce and its a long ride to the middle of the strip.

The light show was very nice. Quite spectacular. They run about 3 songs per run.

There was also a flying fox at one end and it was cool to see people fly past at the top when the show was on.

Definitely worth a visit in the evening when the show comes on hourly.

It is definitely seedier than the strip but still worth visiting.
