Awesome Pictures of the Fremont Experience in Las Vegas, Nevada

By Edited Jul 18, 2016 1 1

The Fremont Experience in Downtown Las Vegas is home to one of the biggest turnarounds any downtown area has ever had. The Downtown Casinios were losing revenue and needed something major to happen to bring back visitors to the Downtown area of Las Vegas. The classic and historic downtown casinos of Las Vegas were tired of losing the limelight to the newer Casinos located on the famous Las Vegas Strip. The downtown casinos needed to make a drastic change, and they came up with the idea for the Fremont Experience.

The mainstreet of Fremont was blocked off to vehicle traffic permeantly and a huge canopy was installed. Every night the casinos cut their outside lights for a few minutes as the very long light show takes place. The huge TV style canopy shows a variety of different shows that are all very awesome to watch. 

Many first time visitors avoid the downtown area and the Fremont Experience because they are only familiar with the Strip, but they are the ones that lose out. No trip to Vegas can be complete without at least an evening visit to the Fremont Experience.

Binions Casino in Las Vegas Nevada

Benny Binion started the Iconic Casino. It was called Binions Horseshoe for many years, but is now simply called Binions. The casino use to be epic when Benny was running the show, but since his death the family ran it into the ground until they were forced to sell it.

Vintage Fremont Street

Retro Fremont Street

This is how Fremont Street looked before the street was blocked off and covered by a huge canopy and light show. This is vintage late 70's Vegas in all its glory during a parade. Pictures like this make me wish time travel was possible.
