Local Guide Where to Stay

Discover Las Vegas

For visitors to Las Vegas, to wander the ‘Strip’ is a rite of passage. A short stroll along this fabulous street will take you past a city skyline like no other. Only here can you catch a glimpse of erupting volcanoes, gaze upon the Sphinx of Egypt, marvel at New York’s Statue of Liberty, Paris’ Eiffel Tower and Venice’s canals.

Away from the Las Vegas Strip, the bright lights continue in the downtown area of Fremont Street. This five-block entertainment district is home to some of the city’s oldest casinos as well as the famous Fremont Street Experience, a dazzling overhead light show comprised of canopy filled with 12.5 million LED lights. Best experienced at night, the light show is free and can be seen every night of the week – it’s not to be missed.
