Continue to the downtown area of Las Vegas, and don’t miss our 360 degree tour of Fremont Street. This street was where it all began, from a small railroad stop at the turn of the century to one of the brightest streets in the world. Fremont street was one of the best places to cruise in a convertible car for decades but now the street has been closed off to traffic and it is a pedestrian paradise lined with kiosks, souvenir shops and of course plenty of casinos.  Up above an arched steel canopy lights up the night sky with an animated, electronic show that spans the entire four blocks of Fremont Street. Further down Fremont Street is the newly developing non-gaming sector of  “Fremont East District” lined with Bars, Coffee shops and places to eat, including newly opened Container Park.

On This Date: February 20, 2005 Hunter S. Thompson Died

February 20, 2017

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Author, Hunter S. Thompson, Died on February 20, 2005

On February 20 2005, Hunter S. Thompson (b.1937), gonzo journalist, committed suicide in Aspen, Colo. Thompson inserted himself into his accounts of America’s underbelly and popularized a first-person form of journalism in books such as “The Rum Diary” (1998) and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” (1972).

Considered the father and pioneer of Gonzo journalism, regard his novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas as the greatest work of the late follower. The book, which is about a wildly psychedelic and crazy adventure of a journalist and a lawyer in Las Vegas, cemented its place in American literature as a critical insight into the failed counter-cultural movement of the 1960’s. It was adapted into a movie in 1998 starring Johnny Depp, who is a close friend of Thompson, and Benicio del Toro. To many fans, revisiting the savage journey of the two characters is the ultimate immersion in the book.
