The Fremont Street Experience

The Fremont Street Experience is the name given to the part of Fremont Street, in Las Vegas, which used to be "the strip", before the current crop of mega dollar casino's sprung up down on Las Vegas Boulevarde. The area has also become home to a number of refurbished neon signs from now-defunct Las Vegas casinos and has acquired what is billed as the largest big screen in existence, with a length of over 1500 feet.

The casino's here have a definite feeling of being in "Old Vegas", while there's still plenty of glitz and plenty of tacky to be found, the whole street has a much calmer feel to it than the regular Vegas strip.

We called it a night relatively early after Fremont Street, as our next day in Las Vegas was also our last, and we still had a fair bit of site seeing to be done, including a visit to the Auto Collections at the Imperial Palace.
