If you haven’t been to Fremont Street in Las Vegas, then you haven’t really had the full Sin City experience.

Serving as the location for iconic film scenes from Elvis Presley’s Viva Las Vegas and the James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever, magic runs through the air in Fremont Street. Here’s a rundown of the top things you should see, eat, and experience during your next visit.

Displaying amazing visuals and music, Viva Vision is a multisensory attraction that covers the top of the pedestrian walkway in Fremont Street. It features a 1,476-ft-long gallery covered by a screen comprised of over 12 million LED bulbs. The free light shows are a must-see — although it’d be almost impossible to miss it, as it occurs hourly every night. There are also three entertainment stages accompanying the gallery where you can enjoy live performances free of charge.

Wondering how to get the best view of the Viva Vision lights show? Look no further than the SlotZilla Zip Line. It launches you off from the world’s largest slot machine right under the lights of Fremont Street! Daredevils will really get a kick out of the SlotZilla as it offers two different positions to fly in: the first position suspending you vertically at a height of 79ft for a distance of 820ft like a usual zipline, and the second horizontally at a height of 115ft for a distance of 1,640 ft.

The Heart Attack Grill in Downtown Las Vegas is famous for its tagline “…taste worth dying for”. The restaurant’s claims to fame: burgers so unhealthily good, nurse uniform-clad waitresses, and their many gimmicks. If a customer can successfully finish their biggest meal, the Quadruple Bypass Burger, they are wheeled out of the restaurant in a wheelchair by a ‘personal nurse’. Dining at the Heart Attack Grill is sure to be an experience for the books.

Don’t miss out on these top Fremont Street spots, and you’re definitely going to have a great time. Check out our other blog posts for more iconic Las Vegas attractions to visit.
