Although the Las Vegas strip is still by far the most popular place to visit in Vegas, no trip would be complete without a trip to Fremont St aka Old Vegas. It’s where it all started, it’s way cheaper than the Strip and it’s one helluva good time, with lots of free and fun options to enjoy. In this article we take a look at 5 cool things that you can see and do on Fremont St in Old Vegas.
#1 – Try The Slotzilla Zip Line
Probably one of the coolest attractions in all of Las Vegas, Slotzilla is a massive zip line that soars the entire length of Fremont St from 12 stories above. There are two options, $25 for the zip line and $45 for the “zoom” line which is basically a longer zip line where you lie flat on your stomach in a super man position. Slotzilla is by far the busiest attraction in Old Vegas so we highly recommend that you get tickets and book well in advance to secure your spot.

#2 – Enjoy A Cheap Seafood Lunch at Chart House
Inside the famed Golden Nugget, Chart House is tucked away behind the casino floor and offers very reasonably priced seafood dishes with an awesome aquarium view. Ask to sit behind the aquarium in the booths for the best view of dozens of exotic fishes and interesting creatures in the 75,000 gallon aquarium. Most dishes are in the $10-$20 range and the portions are massive making for a tasty meal at a reasonable price.

Another very cool attraction in Old Vegas, the light show is a myriad of cool images and colours projected on the roof of Fremont St. Using over 12.5 LED lamps, the show is a great way to enjoy some free entertainment while having a drink or walking down the street. For the ultimate experience, do the Slotzilla zip line at nighttime while the light shows are going on.
