Where to stay in Las Vegas

The Downtown area of Las Vegas is located around Fremont Street, and has more of a local vibe. Here the casinos are closer together so you really can casino-hop if you want to, whereas on The Strip it’s sometimes quite a walk between each one. Prices are generally a little cheaper in the Downtown area than on the glitzier Strip.
