|About these ratings|
Fremont Street used to be the site of the old Las Vegas, dominated by classic but less-frequented casinos that seemed past their prime. The new Fremont Street, now dubbed the Fremont Street Experience, has revived the old town and blossomed into a must-see tourist attraction. The street serves as a pedestrian walkway armed with stages and bright light fixtures. Hourly light shows occur after dark, so it's a great spot for families seeking to find some entertainment for their children. You'll also find some decent restaurants and souvenir stores.
While Fremont Street is considered excellent for free entertainment, some claim the whole setup is a bit tacky. (Admittedly, that's par for the course in Vegas.) According to Fodor's,"The mall is festooned with mediocre souvenir stands and a handful of mostly forgettable eateries. Live entertainment, ranging from mimes to rock bands, sometimes pulls in crowds."
