Downtown Las Vegas Fremont Street

It's no secret that Downtown Las Vegas is my favorite place to be when I'm visiting Las Vegas. It still has the feel of old Las Vegas instead of the stuffy corporate atmosphere you'll find at the resorts on the Las Vegas strip. Some of my favorite things in Las Vegas can be found Downtown from the Banger Brewery to the many speakeasies and unique restaurants on East Fremont Street.

The atmosphere itself Downtown is a show. The street performers ranging from magicians to singers and barely clothed showgirls are fun if nothing else (be sure to tip them if you like their show) and it's just fun to sit back and people watch.

The other benefit of staying in Downtown Las Vegas is everything is much more reasonably priced from the rooms to the the table minimums on the casino floors. My favorite place to stay is the Golden Nugget. It's in the middle of everything, it's classy and it has a pool area with a 200,000 gallon shark tank as it's centerpiece.

And just because you're Downtown, that doesn't mean you can't easily see the rest of the attractions and shows on the Strip by catching The Deuce Double Decker Bus and taking it all the way to the other end of the Strip from Downtown with many stops along the way.
