A classic getaway: Revisiting the Las Vegas of my childhood to love it even more

Dec 28, 2021
Las Vegas is known to the world as Sin City and the place that keeps your secrets with this promise: “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.”

But for me and my family, Las Vegas has always been a place where we could experience a little bit of the world, eat a variety of food on a budget and, of course, have a chance at an elusive jackpot.


Fremont Street

This was definitely not the Fremont Street of my childhood, when you could drive through this part of town.

The space has been transformed into an open pedestrian area reminiscent of New York City’s Times Square, with street vendors and performers looking to entertain and captivate the crowd.

The “Fremont Street Experience” is where you can see the world’s largest outdoor video screen, Viva Vision, by just looking up.

The 1,375-foot-long, 90-foot-wide screen is suspended 90 feet above the walkway below and features 49.3 million LED lights and a 600,000-watt sound system.

You can catch free light shows nightly paired with the latest and greatest pop music.
