Las Vegas' second most famous street after The Strip, Fremont Street is the place where vintage Vegas meets the wonders of modern technology. Named after explorer and anti-slavery campaigner John Charles Frémont, Fremont Street is situated in the heart of downtown Vegas' casino corridor. Home to many of Las Vegas' famous original casinos including the Golden Nugget, Binion's Horseshoe, Golden Gate Hotel and Casino, Eldorado Club, The Mint, Fremont Hotel and Casino and the Pioneer Club. With an abundance of glittering neon signs, the area was affectionately known as Glitter Gulch, a nickname that remains to this day.
Home to free entertainment, roving showgirls, legendary casinos and old fashioned gambling hospitality, Fremont Street is a popular Las Vegas attraction. As the home of the iconic neon cowboy Vegas Vic, this largest mechanical neon sign in the world is just one of the many attractions of Fremont Street. The Fremont Street Experience is one of the biggest attractions to this end of Las Vegas, featuring the unbelievable VivaVision, a 12 million LED light show and 555,000-watt sound system of the curved canopy that boasts free shows nightly.
There's also plenty of shopping, dining, drinking and gambling to be done. You can gamble your health at the notorious Heart Attack Grill, try your hand at catching your lunch with the live lobster skill tester at Mickie Finnz or traverse the whole street in seconds with the zip line that whizzes you high above the crowd. Towards the east end of Fremont Street you'll discover a whole lot more of vintage Vegas with the Neon Museum, home to the Neon Boneyard attraction. For a return to the glamour days of Vegas when luck was a lady, careers were made and Elvis mania was in full swing, Fremont Street is the place for Viva fever!
