With its huge multi-billion dollar resort hotels, garish themes and over-the-top facades, the strip has all the tools necessary to attract millions of tourists.
But removed from the strip lies Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas. The Vegas empire was built here, not on the strip.
When the strip was just a dusty road leading out of the desert, downtown Vegas was the happening spot.
Walking down Fremont Street now fills one with a sense of nostalgia. Here you will find the casinos that built Vegas. Perhaps there is no Vegas casino more part of the history of the town than Binion's Gambling Hall and Hotel.
