And vendors scattered throughout the street? We went down before they fixed it up and I never felt comfortable. Very seedy! Since they have fixed it up more touristy with the canopy and vendors, it is ok. But I have heard of some instances there recently that are not so good. I think it probably depends on what hours you go there. We aren't there in the late night hours. The surrounding area down there is definitely not safe.

We subscribe to a newsletter and with it each year we get a coupon book. The coupon book has a lot of great deals in it and organized alphabetical by establishments. Many of the casinos and restaurants all over the city have coupons in the book. A lot of of very nice restaurant deals. We often go down to Fremont Street to eat and use a coupon. The coupons get us out to some really different and nice restaurants too ... including some away from casinos. We like to just go to Sports Bars and have sandwiches and bar food sometimes too.

Yes, when we went, they had the light show. We stay at the Hilton just off of the main strip for 2 nights and then stayed in a hotel on Freemont and the light show was right outside the hotel. we haven't been there since 2006 though; that is a long story

This thread has veered way off course. Not sure how the mods handle this sort of thing here.

Vegas is constantly changing. Seems something changes every time we go out. Since 2006 a lot has changed.

Sorry that the conversation veered toward wishing them a great time, etc., It happens sometimes as we all are in the same boat and communicate with each other often. Thankfully, the conversation has been a civil and cheery one!

If the original question were still unanswered, we would request they take their discussion to the Off Topic forum. But since it has been, we're letting them have their play time. Eat-popcorn

Then, later, when they are relaxed and feel free, we'll slam 'em with a huge warning for something and....

Sorry, where was I? Oh, right. Nope, all's good here. Laugh-a-lot
