Las Vegas - Fremont Street Experience

The Fremont Street Experience is the consolidation and transformation of the downtown Las Vegas area, known in the past as 'Glitter Gulch' into an outstanding and popular venue for entertainment and as a destination.

When it opened in December 1995, the Fremont Street Experience turned the old Fremont Street 'cruise' area into a pedestrian mall. The 'new' downtown is spacious, elegant and very clean. The Fremont Street Experience is a joint project between the City of Las Vegas and the ten major casino - resorts in the downtown area with some participation by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority.

Every night beginning at either 6:30 or 7:00 and continuing until midnight, a light and sound show is presented 'on' the four block long canopy. The frame hangs 90 feet above ground level and consists of 2.1 million lights that are controlled by 36 computers.









The shows are dramatic and colorful. On the weekends it is quite crowded. There is definitely a special atmosphere when the show comes on and the huge crowd stops to watch it. The shows are very high quality with excellent graphics and sound. After a few minutes, the show is over and things return to 'normal'.

The mall like environment gives the visitor a different kind of look at Las Vegas.
