10 Bar Hop
Of course, the classic thing to do in Vegas is to try out the various beers and cocktails available inside the famous hotels. While there are plenty of drinks to be had on the casino floors that reside along Fremont Street, there are plenty of extravagant one-off bars you should check out as well.
The D Bar, for example, can't be missed. It is smack-dab in the middle of the downtown strip. If you've passed the dancing bartenders, you've gone too far.
9 Watch a Concert
There are free concerts going on almost every night of the week in downtown Las Vegas. To give you an idea of the lineup, in 2019 this stage hosted Good Charlette, Sugar Ray, Cheap Trick, Vanilla Ice, and Bucky Cherry.
Alright, so they definitely have a theme going on. But if you're a fan of '90s hip hop, punk, rock, country, or pop, you'll feel right at home with this crowd. Libations are only a few steps away and you can hear the band playing up and down the street. Did we mention it's free?
8 Pose with Street Performers
On the main Vegas strip, you see people dressed as characters like Mickey Mouse and showgirls at pretty much any point of the day. However, if you're looking for a photo op that is a little bit more risque, you'll need to find your way down to Fremont Street.
In addition to traditional characters such as Spider-Man and Deadpool, wanderers will also see nuns in pasties and grown men dressed as babies. It's quite a sight to see and something you won't really believe until you see it first hand yourself.
7 Buy Original Artwork
One of the coolest things about Fremont Street is that it's alive and booming at almost all hours of the day. The continuous overhead light show makes it seem like it's daylight 24/7, which means there's always someone on the street trying to make a buck or two.
The best investment you can make in this area comes from street artists. You can stand and watch as they hand paint works of art. The spray paint artist shows are ones you definitely need to catch. You can request a custom art piece and they'll make it right there in front of you for a truly original souvenir to take home with you.
6 Fly Down Fremont Street
Slotzilla dubs itself a "zipline unlike any other." And this is especially true considering it's the only zipline attraction that takes you up and over downtown Last Vegas. The traditional zipline will take you up to seven stories and zip you across the florescent lights of Fremont Street in a standard sitting position.
The Ultimate Zoomline, however, takes in a somewhat rickety elevator up eleven stories. Once you get there, you lay down on your stomach, get fastened to your harness, and fly down the strip in legit Superman-style. It is truly an opportunity you don't want to miss.
5 Visit The Oldest Casinos
Downtown Las Vegas, also known as Old Las Vegas, is home to Sin City's oldest hotels and casinos. The Golden Gate Hotel & Casino has been around since 1906, the Four Queens Hotel & Casino still has that essence of classic Vegas, and the Golden Nugget has as much energy now as it did when it opened in 1946.
Each of these casinos offers all the contemporary flair of new-age Vegas casinos, but there's an air of familiarity and ease that you can't quite find on the Vegas strip.
4 Live Shows At The Canyon Club
The Canyon Club hosts a live-action comedy show in an intimate space inside the Four Queens. It comes on Wednesday through Sunday and if you're lucky (or unlucky depending on how you look at it), you can even partake in the show!
The Mike Hammer Magic and Comedy show come highly recommended by most visitors, and it wouldn't be a trip to Las Vegas if you didn't catch a little Elvis! The Spirit of the King, stars Elvis Artist, Steve Connolly.
3 Check Out the Haunted Museum
The building that Zak Bagan's Haunted Museum rests in was built in the 1930s. Some of its old inhabitants are said to have died there and to this day, their spirits are still creeping inside its walls.
If you are a fan of the supernatural or just the down-right creepy, this Haunted Museum will quench your spooky thirst. There are hundreds of rooms filled to the brim with antique objects that are said to be haunted.
2 Eat At Heart Attack Grill
Still wondering about that 20,000 calorie burger? You'll find that here, at the aptly named Heart Attack Grill. It's one of the first facades you'll see when you enter Fremont Street with a not-so-discreet sign that claims anyone "over 350 lbs eats free."
Their claim to fame is the Octuple Bypass Burger which is technically 19,900 calories and weighs four pounds. The entire restaurant is themed like a hospital, where your server is a nurse and you are required to dine in hospital gowns. But on the chance that someone does have a heart attack here, they'll definitely call real medical help.
1 'Fear The Walking Dead' Escape Room
If you are a fan of the whole escape room phenomenon, downtown Las Vegas has one that puts the rest to shame. The 'Fear the Walking Dead Survival' room maintains a five-star rating across the board. It's open every day of the week until 1 a.m. except on Friday and Saturdays when it's open until 2 a.m.
There are zombies everywhere in this escape room and you have a limited amount of time to escape their clutches. This one isn't for the faint of heart... and they recommend that you don't stop running.
