Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas

Gambling. Entertainment. Neon. The Fremont Street Experience is the Las Vegas Experience. Fremont Street is the location of old Vegas where the first hotels were built. Now it has a very different feel from the main part of the strip. Neon signs are everywhere you look, it’s absolutely fabulous. This area was dubbed the ‘glitter gulch’ because it is so dazzling.

fremont_street_experience_7If you do nothing else in Vegas visit Fremont Street, it’s got everything you need neatly packaged into a compact area. For me, it was an unforgettable part of my Vegas experience.
