Fremont Experience fun is completely free in Vegas.
On Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas you never quite know what you’re going to get. Each time we’ve been the light show is different and there are different acts performing. All the entertainment on Fremont street is free. You can decide if you want to tip an act you’ve stopped to watch. If you want to take a picture with a celebrity look-alike, you are expected to pay $1.
Last week we saw the Country Superstar Tribute at the Golden Nugget. The show was good, a little random and the kids didn’t know who any of the singers were supposed to be. I snapped a pic of the kids with the Willie Nelson look-alike and my friends were freaking out about it on Facebook. They can’t tell it’s a fake Willie.
Afterward, we went outside to see what was going on. The first 3 pictures are of one of the light shows at Fremont Experience.
There were a lot of acts that night, but most were not appropriate for my Family Travel blog content, like an almost nude Native American! We also saw part of a wedding going on right outside the Golden Nugget. It was a biker wedding and different from anything I’ve seen. At one point my oldest asked me if it was a joke. Just another example of the Fremont Experience variety. You never know what you are going to see!

Evil Pie – This place is a dive, but they have the most fantastic pizza!

While other restaurants might offer some vegan options, here you can enjoy a full vegan menu, and it’s all delicious. The ambiance is casual, the service was always great – it’s perfect for a quick lunch or a relaxed dinner. Make sure you start with THE FANCY CHEESEBOARD, and then any other main course will be perfect!
Cool Bars Near Fremont
I was recently in town (Jan. 2019) and my friend Ashlee and I went bar hopping down around Fremont Street. This area has gotten some great bars since we moved away.
Velveteen Rabbit: The first place we hit was Velveteen Rabbit. The place is super casual and they have quite a bit of seating. It was cold the night we went, otherwise we could have gone outside and enjoyed the patio.
Commonwealth: There’s a hidden speakeasy upstairs called the Laundry Room, but it’s hard to get in. This place seems to be super popular. There were are a ton of people there when I went.
Downtown Cocktail Room: This is an unmarked bar, but it’s super easy to find. It’s super dark and they serve pickles.
