Fremont St. Experience Las Vegas, NV

So, You're going to Fremont St...
Hey all! I live and work in Las Vegas, NV. I have the pleasure of working at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino. If you have been to Fremont St. in downtown Las Vegas, you would know that they have alot of things to do for mostly adults but also some things for families as well. They have also added some great new venues and food stops in case you are walking Fremont and get thirsty and/or hungry. Here are some things for you to know for next time you travel to Vegas and take a walk down Fremont:
Gambling-Everywhere you can stick a slot machine!
Drinking-Tons of drinks everywhere and for cheap and are really, really good! Inside the Mermaids you can get a footlong drink with lots of choices to choose from and only 13.50, if you are still parched after that drink, just go back to Mermaids and get the same drink for half off=6.75. Great deal there!
Pools-The Golden Nugget has a great pool and costs only $10.00 each per wristband for the kiddos, and 20.00 each per wristband for adults. (the wristbands are for people that aren't staying at the Golden Nugget but want to experience the awesome Shark Tank Pool and Waterslide)
Parking-If you park at the Main St. Parking Lot, you pay 3 dollars. But when you leave, if you go to either the California Casino or the Main St. Station Casino you can go to their Casino Cage and get your money back. Free parking! But only if you return your ticket before the 24 hours after your ticket was stamped! But still, 3 dollar parking!
Food-From hot dogs and fried stuffs inside Mermaids, to Tasti D-Lite inside Binions, they have mostly anything you can think of! Mcdonalds inside the Plaza, (which is closed as of right now) another Mcdonalds inside Fitzgeralds, Dunkin Donuts inside the Fremont, Subway inside 4 Queens, and a Gelato vendor right outside 4 Queens. Those are only the fast-food places! They also have a premium chocolate shop inside The Golden Nugget called the Chocolate Box, and an awesome candy shop called Rocky Mountain Chocolate inside the Fremont that sells candy apples! Everything is oh so nummy!
Night Life-There is a light show every night on Fremont St. with the Viva Vision overhead screen. There are free concerts on two stages of Fremont St. with bands that play nightly, of course, these are FREE! The Golden Nugget has a nightclub called Gold Diggers with a patio overlooking Fremont St. This particular club is closed on Mon-Tue. Unless there is a special event going on, admission is FREE for Gold Diggers.
Celebrity Impersonators-There are tons of impersonators on Fremont St. I have seen, so far, Chucky from the movie Chucky, Showgirls that look like actual showgirls, there is also a man that dresses like a showgirl, Michael Jackson who is a deadringer for him, (no pun intended) a Gold lady all spray painted in Gold who has a great personality, a magician, Elvis, (actually there are a few Elvis's out there) Spiderman, Batman, Spongebob, (who looks gross in my opinion) and tons more!
Zipline-This attraction has it's own category because it is awesome and new! It's called Fremont St. FlightLinez. They are open daily at 12 pm and close at 12 am Sun-Thur and 2 am Fri/Sat. Cost is $15.00 before 6 pm and 20.00 after that. If you are under 18 years old, you will have to have your parents sign a waiver. The Zipline opened December 2010 and is still fairly new. It is an awesome and exhilarating adventure for all you thrill seekers out there.
Hope to see you in Vegas!
