Fremont Experience Las Vegas

Fremont Experience Las Vegas

One of the greatest things about living in Vegas is that on any given night, there are plenty of options for going out. Some that are even free. Since we’re on a limited budget for our date nights, it’s a fun challenge for us to find good affordable activities. And since Jacob is so frugal, he makes sure we stay on budget – that’s the advantage of a frugal husband… I guess. :P

Most people who go to Vegas think of the strip, but just a few miles away is Downtown Las Vegas, a strip of old vegas on Fremont Street that they’ve turned into a great area to walk around. One of the attractions there is the Fremont Experience where they have a lit canopy overhead with nightly light shows. There are 12.5 million lights up there! They have live music, and even though I’m not much of a romantic, I think it can be a nice, romantic spot to walk around at night. You can also walk through the classic casinos or even do slotzilla – a zipline through the canopy – if you want!

  1. These pictures are so cool! I didn’t get around to seeing this when I went in January (though it was something I wanted to do). Lots of lights, fun!

    1. You need to come to this area. I think you will really like it. :) It’s such a different feel from the strip.

    1. It is! we should go there at night next time! it’s very different from the day time. :)

  2. That sounds like fun! I think I’ll be checking out Fremont St the next time that I go to Vegas.

      1. I don’t have any plans to go soon, but I haven’t been there for a few years and I really want to go back. I would never have expected it, but Vegas is a place that I always think about returning to since the first time that I went. The last time I was there was for a mermaid convention and I’d like to go back and stay at the same place that we stayed at for the convention. :)

        1. mermaid convention, huh? that sounds really interesting. :)
