The Strip

The spectacular Strip is synonymous with the city of Las Vegas, a world unto itself where anything is possible. The success of a single casino in 1941 laid the seeds for what would eventually become the extraordinary and unparalleled Las Vegas Strip, a cultural phenomenon that attracted legendary musicians, top-notch hoteliers and a whole host of colorful characters, their stories interwoven into the very fabric of the city. This stretch of South Las Vegas Boulevard is bejeweled with luxury hotels the likes of which are found nowhere else, entertainment venues that host some of the world's top acts, and attractions that run the gamut from the dancing fountains of the Bellagio to the dazzling lights of the Fremont Street Experience. Here, it's possible to enjoy a gondola ride down Venetian canals, tour the amazonian forests and admire the Eiffel Tower in a single day; a replica of some of the world's wonders packed into a single street. The Strip's 30 odd casinos are a whirlwind of flashing lights where time holds no sway and fortunes are won with the roll of a dice or the spin of a wheel, while world-renown restaurants, shopping centers, nightclubs and arenas vie for attention too. So grand is the spectacle, that the Strip is clearly visible from the sky, its glimmering facades, brilliant lights and distinctive architecture unmistakable as anything else.

Fremont Street

The Fremont Street area of Las Vegas is located downtown, north of the famed Vegas Strip. Here you will find Las Vegas' original strip with classic casinos, hotels, restaurants, and shopping. To attract more tourists away from The Strip, the Fremont Street Experience was created. The massive entertainment venue is home to Viva Vision, the spectacular light and music show. Using over 12.5 million lights projecting onto a 500-yard-long (457-meter-long) canopy 90 feet (27 meters) above the ground and a 550,000 watt sound system, it truly makes Fremont Street a prime attraction. Shows are free and play every night, making your time on Fremont Street all the more exciting. Keep your head and do not miss the famed Vegas Vic, the neon sign that looks like a cowboy. Made in 1951, the sign has ruled over Fremont Street since it was put up.
