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.

Want to see Harrah’s, Caesar’s and all the famous casinos? Then take a virtual stroll down Boulevard South. One very popular game in the Las Vegas casinos is roulette and this is certainly something that we like to share with the world.

The Clark Country Wetland Park is a 2900-acre park; the largest in the Clark County area. It is open daily from dusk until dawn, and admission is free. There is a visitor’s center onsite and an exhibition hall. They are open from 9am until 4pm. The Wetlands Park was constructed as a wetland in order to reduce the environmental impact of waste water, but has since become an excellent attraction for a day trip. The atmosphere is relaxing, and there are hundreds of species of plants and birds to be seen. The nature center is also a great resource for education about wildlife and ecology.

The Clark County Wetlands Park is located 20 minutes drive East of Las Vegas, near to the Sam Boyd Stadium. To get there, follow the 515 South, and then turn left onto East Tropicana Avenue. You can find the park at 7050 Wetlands Park Lane, NV89122. If you can pull yourself away from the neon lights and poker tables for a few hours, this trip doesn’t take long, and is a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the strip.
