The Fremont Street Experience is mostly known for its overhead light show, Viva Vision, which is spectacular display of lights and technology. Street performers, impersonators and artists known as buskers are found all along the street level on Fremont Street, making a walk up and down the few blocks under the canopy feel like an adult carnival. A zip line ride, SlotZilla, zooms riders under the canopy and over the heads of the people below. And, of course, every hour after dark the overhead canopy explodes into images and music. During the day, the FSE is a bit more sedate. Pedestrians can stroll from casino to casino and check out the wares at the shopping kiosks. If you're shopping for souvenirs, several places along the FSE feature inexpensive trinkets and tee-shirts.
- Best Attractions & Activities: "The trendy Fremont East district is directly east of the FSE's canopy and is home to several restaurants and bars. It's easy walking distance from FSE, but parking is also plentiful along the streets and in various lots throughout this area."
- Free Things to Do: "If you're in Vegas with kids, a walk on the FSE might be a little shocking with all of its adult elements. You might want to leave the kiddos at home if you'd like to spend some time there."
- Recommended as Best Attractions & Activities Because: The Fremont Street Experience is like an on-going street festival with casinos and a dazzling light show overhead.
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: The entertainment along the Fremont Street Experience, from the eye-popping Viva Vision light show to the street performers, is generally low-cost or free.
