Spanning four city blocks, the Fremont Street Experience is a massive outdoor mall and the site of Las Vegas’ very first freestanding casino building. Today, it hosts 10 different casinos with games and tables, plenty of restaurants, and free concerts and other live entertainment, with multiple performances staged each day. It’s also notable for its famous Viva Vision canopy, which projects thousands of different color combinations and images overhead.
Featuring concerts, lights shows, and multiple casinos, the Fremont Street Experience is one of Downtown Vegas’ biggest attractions. Visitors can experience this slice of Sin City history in a number of ways, including walking tours, Trikke and Segway tours, or even a private tour with an Elvis impersonator in a pink Cadillac convertible.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Fremont Street is a must-see for first-time visitors to Las Vegas.

- Visit during the day and at night to see all sides of the Fremont Street Experience.
How to Get There
The Fremont Street Experience is located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas between Las Vegas Boulevard and Eighth Street. The double-decker Deuce bus ferries passengers between the Strip and Fremont Street, but if you’re in a hurry, a taxi or car is the best way to get there. Parking at the Fremont Street Experience garage is free with validation from any of several participating casinos.
When to Get There
While there’s always something entertaining going on at the Fremont Street Experience, the best time to visit is at night when the neon is illuminated and Vivo Vision shows light up the video screen ceiling on the hour.
Non-Gambling Attractions on Fremont Street
Whether you’ve blown your budget or simply need a break from the slots and tables at the historic Las Vegas casinos, the Fremont Street Experience offers plenty more in the way of entertainment. Soar above the crowds on the SlotZilla zipline, snap a selfie with $1 million in cash at the iconic Binion’s casino, stroll past historic neon signs at the Neon Museum, brush up on your mob history at the Mob Museum, do some shopping in Downtown Container Park, or watch the fish swim by at the Golden Nugget Shark Tank.
