    Fremont Street is something to see, but please be prepared for what you will see...especially if you are bringing children. We went during the day, with teens, and I wanted to cover their eyes at times...lol. It is Vegas but just wanted to give parents with young children a heads up...I am sure it is even wilder at night.

    We went during the day so you could faintly see the lights, I would recommend going at night. But I do recommend to the museum to play some old tunes like from that era to fix it up a bit. Offer posts with buttons that tell about the sign. It was kind of boring. It says you have an hour to walk through, we took 20 minutes. Cute little gift shop and shaded area at the end. Security followed us everywhere to make sure you didn't touch signs. I guess that's a problem there for them.

    My kids LOVE the show and so I wanted to make sure I went and took a picture of myself while there for them.
    The reviews all told me that this place was small. That's true.
    They have a bunch of stuff. Packed in. LOTS of jewelry! Expensive.
    I didn't see anyone from the show, but that was expected per the reviews, as well.
    What I didn't realize was that it's in a pretty sketchy part of town.
    I had taken an Uber from The Strip here and the driver said, "Ummmm.... I'm not sure a good place to drop you off at...." I said, "Is this a sketchy part of town? There's construction, abandoned house/parking lots all around, etc." And the driver said, "Just be sure you are aware of your surroundings."
    I told them to drop me off on the side street behind the shop and that I'd walk.
    However, as I decided to make the walk to Fremont Street from there ( a little over a half mile), I Facetimed my family. Figured they'd at least be able to recognize where I was before I was taken.

    I heard of this place before our recent trip to Vegas and thought it sounded great for our almost 2 year old.

    Its a great place and my son loved the water room (he would still be there now if we didn't drag him away) but there are a few things I wish I knew before my visit.

    Although this looks close to Fremont Street on google maps, its not walking distance (especially in the heat with a toddler) and there's a train line in-between however, there is a FREE shuttle bus (bright pink) called 'The Loop' which drives from The Strat on the Vegas strip and stops at Symphony Park (right outside Discovery Museum) it also stops at the North shopping mall, City Hall and the Fremont Experience to name a few. We got a taxi from The Strat that morning after breakfast but had we known about the free shuttle we could have saved around $25! We used the Loop after to get to the Fremont experience. Just something to keep in mind if you are staying on the strip.

    The Museum itself is 3 storeys high and has a range of activities inside. our Toddler loved it. we would have spent a lot longer here however, there is no Café so we couldn't get lunch or drinks. Just a fridge in the gift shop selling a few basics and nothing outside the museum either.

    We were told our tickets lasted all day so could leave and return, we didn't have our own transport so couldn't be bothered to return once we had left and we spent the rest of the day on Fremont Street and Container Park. If you had a café then we would have stayed all day, enjoyed the facilities longer and spent more money.

    I've been to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is this is nothing compared to that but still had some cool exhibits. Lots of live fish and reptiles, the shark pool was kind neat. A quick visit takes about an hour. Admission is $12 per person but museums like this are a great resource and place to learn about our natural world so I am fine with supporting them. Can't say I'd hurry back, I saw all the exhibits already but it is worth a visit if you are in Las Vegas.

    I have a lot of respect for Binion's because they have done some renovations to try to improve it customer experiences here. For example, they built a bar/club called "liquor up 2 whiskey.", which has been a popular new attraction.. There is a place called the Cowgirl Cantina and good restaurant called "Benny's." There is a fish spa here, which is an unique social option. I need to get in contact with the reviewer that goes to ghost events here because this place already has a highly spirited environment! The customer service is also very good here! jefferson lee-amazon book author

    This is a casino that has been around for awhile in Vegas. It is a Fremont Staple and since the revitalization of the downtown arts district they have transformed this old beauty into a cool family interactive playground. There is an indoor area that has a few carnival type games to play, a full bar, and an over sized dart board, over sized Connect 4, 2 pool tables and a super chill lounge area. The outside is awesome and I can not wait for the fall to roll around and enjoy it more. There is a life size shuffle board, life size chess game, life size twister, over sized corn hole games, and a spectacular outside seating area. There is also an outside stage that is the platform for local bands. This last July the had a battle of the bands competition that lasted each weekend in July. So come on out enjoy this diamond in the ruff and support some local artists.

    Not the fault of the hotel, but you are off Fremont. We only slept there, so we weren't able to try out the pool or restaurants. Location is very convenient. Part of our group stayed in a different room. There A/C was quite and no noise issues. So, it really just depends where you are within the hotel itself.

    Most vintage casino I have visited in Vegas. Located in downtown Las Vegas, it,s steps away from the Fremont Street Experience. We stayed 2 nights in the newer part of the hotel. Rooms were clean although the sink became stopped up which was an inconvience. Handy mini fridge and coffee service in the room.

    I found the Video poker selection pretty good with some good pay tables on certain machines. The casino atmosphere was similar to most Fremont casinos and the service was good.

    On May 3rd I won a $10,248 jackpot on the Soltice slot machine. It’s my favorite machine and I love to play it at Golden Gate. I come to Vegas once a month and I always frequent the Golden Gate to play slots. I didn’t stay there. After I won the jackpot I got congratulations from many of the employees there. Very nice indeed. I also got a personal visit from the casino host. He congratulated me as well. So one of the slot attendants said a casino host will be coming out to see u. I told him he already came by and congratulated me. That was it. The slot attendant look at me in disbelief as if more should have happened. After thinking about the encounter with the casino host i kinda felt more should have happened. For instance, I just won over $10k, why not invite me to stay the night most notably at Circa? I would have spent more money of my winnings at the Stevens properties. But that wasn’t offered or even a free premium drink. The casino missed an opportunity for me to spend some of my winnings. Instead the Bellagio, got most of it. I played there all night.

    Vegas Vic is a classic Vegas neon that you have to see when visiting, glad to see he still glows bright and is being looked after, well worth a visit.

    I've been to Las Vegas regularly for nearly 25 years but had never visited the State Park. It is an urban area of North Las Vegas, but inside the walls of the Fort, it is still of earlier eras. The admission was just $3, so well worth it. The exhibit hall traced the areas prehistoric, early inhabitant and European visitors to the area from the Spanish Jesuit parties, through the Mormon immigration, farming, and the railroads. Interesting to view the short (15 minute film) and various exhibits in an air conditioned building, The grounds are of less interest, but the Las Vegas creek (or its artificial facsimile?) is still there running through the fort grounds.

    Well worth a quick visit.

    Attended a Las Vegas Lights USL soccer match at Cashman Field. Bleachers are a bit uncomfortable, but chair backs are good. Lots of fun activities in addition to the game: the night we were there they had a water balloon fight on the field at half-time-This was a welcome respite from the heat. Food is good, with hot dogs, hamburgers and tacos the main offerings. Fun crowd. The field is a bit out of the way if you are staying on the strip. We took an Uber.

    The Fremont Hotel & Casino is on, you guessed it Fremont Street in Downtown. They have both old and new slot machines (some still take coins). They have all the popular table games in the pit. Nice Race & Sports Book and Live Keno. They have several bars and restaurants at all price points. Very friendly staff that speak pure Aloha. I added photos of my latest visit.
