The highlight for most tourists are the Viva Vision shows, with over 12.5 million synchronized LED modules broadcasting images set to various musical shows. There are usually seven shows a night, on the hour, starting at 6pm. There are six different shows that rotate throughout the night.
In between the shows, small show stages are set up throughout the street, where good cover bands entertain tourists as they wait. The older casinos in this area also tend to offer table games with lower minimum bets. This is also a good place to come for cheap margaritas and New Orleans-style drinks.
The no. 301 and 302 buses run directly to Fremont Street. Try to catch the no. 302 if you can, as it is an express bus and makes fewer stops. Taxis from the Strip are expensive--around $20, depending on the traffic. The trolley also runs here.

The light show is bedazzling at first, but after a while I got tired of looking up; in the end, it was just another gimmick. The sound quality was okay, not great. The Fremont Street Experience was lacking something and not such a fulfilling experience. It was near where I was staying, so it wasn't so much effort to come see this. I wouldn't say this is a must-see attraction.There's a strategy to revitalize the area by attracting more shoppers and tourists into the once-thriving old downtown, now past its prime and showing its age. It's five blocks long, and the street is closed off to automobile traffic. Businesses line the street with tables for dining and drinking at their establishments.Phone: (800) 249-3559 or (702) 678-5777

If you are staying on or near the Strip, take a cab downtown. Just ask the driver to take you to Fremont Street and he'll take it from there.
There are many casinos and shops on Fremont and neighboring streets. Wandering in and out of the casinos in this lit up world is a fabulous past time.
Part of Fremont has some type of covering on which the Fremont Street Experience "show" is displayed. This show is a sound and light type show. The theme changes from time to time. It is absolutely spectacular and should not be missed.

The gambling was also more relaxed. Mind you, we are not big-time gamblers - nickel slots are what we look for and enjoy. However, we hit more than one $30 jackpot once we left the crowds, and enjoyed more than our share of 99-cent shrimp cocktails. Fremont is more like the Vegas of old. If you prefer window shopping at Chanel with a thousand others who can't afford to buy anything there, then Fremont isn't for you. But if you prefer kitsch and cheap come-ons offered with a smile and a wink, head the few blocks over to the other Las Vegas and relax a little.
