Things to see, do downtown.

Returning to Vegas for our second trip next week. Stayed midstrip last time and did not make it downtown. Want to do an evening downtown any suggestions on must see or things to do?

same here, this is my 3rd trip in may and still not made it down town for 1 evening out of the 17 that i have stayed in vegas.

i like the idea of a cheap pub crawl with some cheap gambling tables..

There are many things to do downtown. Get a shrimp cocktail at the Golden Gate, get some beads at mermaids, get your picture taken with a million dollars at Binions, see the Rat Pack show or Gordie Brown, browse the many souvenir shops, check out the old neon signs, join the players clubs and get some free souvenirs, play the low limit blackjack tables, and more.

I always enjoy downtown, usually stay there instead of the strip.

bella- you can take the new ACE transit to downtown if you don't want to cab it.

" Want to do an evening downtown any suggestions on must see or things to do? "

Other then the light show and a few bands playing here and there, not much else to do downtown unless you like to casino hop, collect beads and bring home a new key chain for your keys.

I would check out Golden Nuggets pool. It has a slide that goes down the middle of an enclosed glass aquariam. Very neat to check out (atleast I thought it was).

I enjoy downtown, I go one evening every trip to see the night show, and bands. Its a nice atmosphere sometimes when the laser show is on and the bands start playing.

I recall the one time I was there they had a motocycle show in a sphered cage. That was a neat to check out. I'm not certain if they are still there or not, maybe someone else can confirm that. The grafitti artists are neat to watch do their peices.

Enjoy it is a completely different experience than the strip, I enjoy the change. :)

The light show is worth the trip. Make sure you have your wallet/purse protected. Pretty easy targets when everyone is looking up in the air.

The Deuce bus does go straight to the Fremont Experience. We went there a few times last week. Enjoy!!!

Really I heard that the Duece will no longer be going to Fremont too. That the Ace is now provigin service to downtown. Maybe the changes haven't been fully implemented yet.
