Take a walk down Fremont St
The Fremont Street Experience is classic Vegas in all its neon glory, and where you'll find that famous smoking-cowboy marquee, who actually has a name: Vegas Vic. It's free to stroll through the outdoor pedestrian mall that now covers the busiest stretch of Fremont St -- with the sole exception of New Year's Eve, the only time admission is charged. Nightly Viva Vision shows take place about once an hour on the LED video screens that line the overhead canopy and live music isn't hard to find, with local bands playing on three different stages. Big-name national acts will occasionally show up, especially during a free summer concert series that's drawn the likes of Joan Jett, Bret Michaels, 3 Doors Down, and Melissa Etheridge.
