Pawn Stars Pawn Shop. Close to strip?

Hubby loves watching "Pawn Stars" and wants to visit the shop while we're there.

Is it close to the strip? And if not, is it worth the drive?

You'll have to taxi, but it's not far. It's worth it if you like the show, but dot expect to see the staff from the show.

Yup, it's on the strip---but between the Stratosphere and Downtown in the middle of Bum F--- Egypt. Don't go to the area of the store at night. Pretty shady area I hear.

There are a few earlier threads regarding this question which if you search in the TA forums, you can easily find them.

Address is 713 N. Las Vegas Blvd. Check it out on Google Earth street view.

Its on the strip, North of Stratosphere in the ghetto on the way to Fremont Street.

I like the show, too. The shop itself is disappointing. We did go in the evening, nothing scary going on, and quite a few browsers. If you're a fan, its worth checking out just to see what you see on TV. But if you're looking to actually shop in a pawn shop, its very small.

Taxi is not necessary. The Deuce bus drops off fairly close to the pawn shop.

Allow time to wait on line to get in, depending on when you go, it can be anything from No wait to over an hour to get in! Locals do not have to wait in line, if you have friends and/or relatives with a Nevada Drivers License you go rite to the front of the line!

We went on our 1st trip. Took the Duece and got off a little ways down from the shop. We both found it a waste of time. Not to say you won't enjoy it, just wasn't our cup of tea but we felt like we had to see it as we watched the show. It's really small and cramped inside, with everyone lined up going around the store in a big line. Didn't even get to see much of what was for sale.

For what it's worth, it's incorrect to say that the store is "on the Strip" as a couple of posts do here.

A Las Vegas Blvd South address doesn't automatically mean a place is on the Strip. The Strip is generally accepted to be locations between (and including) Mandalay Bay and Stratosphere.

Its worth it if you're a fan . Its great just thinking to yourself when watching the show " ive been there " . Ive been many times killing time and managed to get a pic of Chumlee when he was in one day . I think they are " too important " to do normal pawn work now so chances of seeing them is slim . Its good looking at all the items and recognising some of the things youve seen in some of the episodes . Actually bought a few silver rings my boys wanted after seeing them in the show .

We went in June, only because my son loves the show and we were killing time before our flight. We happened to pass it at 9am and no queue. (there had been queues everytime we had passed it last year and this)

Son loved it and now watches show saying I,ve stood there!! LOL he,s 22 not 2 years of age!!

It is fairly small and as others have mentioned dont expect to see the "stars"

Im glad we went - its another thing ticked off our list.
