Downtown Las Vegas | Plan Your “Experience”

Downtown Las Vegas

Las Vegas has so much to offer and our locals often overlook a great Las Vegas staycation or vacation! {Wherever you are traveling from.}

One of our favorite “full of activities” places in the Valley is the Downtown Las Vegas area. Fremont Street is our weekend go-to place when we want entertainment that never fails. Whether it’s dinner and people watching, the free concerts, or taking in a show… Fremont always delivers when we want to be entertained.

While I am not a big fan of gambling in casinos that are not our “local casinos.” I do enjoy it at the various casinos on Fremont Street as normally they have smaller table play limits. Yes, I am a cheap gambler.

With all the hotels, restaurants, and activities you don’t have to walk too far to create an enjoyable stay with memories that will last a lifetime. {And keep the kids away from some activities so they don’t have memories that last them a lifetime}

Useful links for dining out in Las Vegas:

Depending on the ages of your children (if you are taking them) you may be able to slip out for a cocktail or to enjoy the Fremont Street Experience at night. When planning also think about First Friday events and perhaps try to coincide your Las Vegas staycation / vacation around this date for an additional event to attend.
