Las Vegas, NV, USA

19 May Las Vegas, NV, USA

When I think of Vegas, the first thing that normally comes to mind is  gambling and ,ehem, memorable parties. I’m not big fan of  losing my money voluntarily  ( I keep my total slot machine spending budget at a $10 max and $20 on blackjack) so on my recent trip back west,   I wanted to explore the other amenities that Sin City had to offer. In comes the trek to Vegas’ Freemont East district.  Just a short 20 min ride from the strip, it hosts a pedestrian mall filled with tons of non-gambling things to do! Read on for a rundown of how I spent my time doing whimsical things and taking in the Freemont Experience…

Site- see!

The streets look so pretty at night all lit up but taking a daytime mini tour around town proved to be just as fun. I soon remembered why I typically spend the typically spend my days indoors or by a pool when ever I’m in Vegas as as the temperature was about 4000 degrees that day…give or take.[singlepic id=247 w=320 h=240 float=center][singlepic id=253 w=320 h=240 float=center][singlepic id=235 w=320 h=240 float=center]

People watch

I spoke to and saw some of the most interesting folks on my visit. With people traveling from all parts of the country and the world – there is no shortage of “uniqueness” flowing around.

I didn’t get a chance to do ( way too full to indulge) but,  I lived vicariously through the folks who took the glide to the other side.
