In the heart of historic Downtown Las Vegas is the second most famous street in the city – Fremont Street, named in honor of John Charles Fremont – an explorer, American soldier, mapmaker, surveyor, and politician. Fremont Street dates back to 1905, when Las Vegas was founded. Since then, it has been the site for numerous films and TV shows. Fast forward to 1995, when the world-famous Fremont Street Experience opened. It covers five city blocks with direct access to eight casino hotels. Every year at least 26 million people visit this pedestrian mall and attraction to take in the free shows on Viva Vison – the world's largest video screen.
Surrounding the Fremont Street Experience is a vibrant Las Vegas nightlife with concerts, rooftop bars, eclectic eateries, and attractions like the 12-story SlotZilla Zip Line, Mob Museum, and Neon Museum and dozens of entertaining street performers. Downtown is the urban core of the city.
No trip to Las Vegas would be complete without visiting Downtown – where it all began!

Brian Pfeiffer’s Final Word on Fremont Steet Experience
Well, there you have it, the most comprehensive guide to the Fremont Street Experience. I love going "downtown" when I have friends in town. Visiting Fremont Street does not cost anything; there is plenty to see and do, from the free concerts and entertaining street performers to the people-watching! Take a break from the Strip and head Downtown. Grab a bite at Park on Fremont, walk over and grab a beer 🍺 at Commonwealth, and then walk a block to grab a cheap open bar deal from the rooftop at ZAI at 700 Fremont. You’ll have an epic night for under $100!
Some other options for entry to pools and club include the Las Vegas club crawl, cheap bottle packages, the guestlist with a Las Vegas Promoter, club tickets, or a bar card all are good options for one or two events.
