Experience downtown Las Vegas in this short video. Head to the top of the Stratosphere Tower to take in the views and experience the thrill rides, then head to Fremont Street for plenty of entertainment. Great for ESL students and the classroom!
“Just north of the Strip, you’ll find the Stratosphere tower. Head to the top of this 350-meter tower to take in the views of Vegas down below. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are also a few thrill rides. Buy the ticket; take the ride. After all that excitement, make your way downtown. On the way, you can stop at the world’s largest gift shop.
If the Strip is the new side of Vegas, then Fremont Street is old school. This was the first paved street in the city and the first to have a traffic light. Plenty of famous casinos are located here, including the Golden Nugget, Binion’s, the Pioneer Club, and the Golden Goose. There’s a lot of neon here, another thing Vegas is famous for. Head into one of the casinos and you may see something interesting, like Elvis Presley’s last car.
You can find deep fried twinkies here, as well as the infamous Heart Attack Grill, where people over 350 pounds eat for free. The action doesn’t just go on in the casinos on Fremont Street. You’ll see incredible spray paint artists at work, and maybe even a live band. Street performers are big here, so don’t be surprised to see a group dancing. If you like the show, be sure to throw a tip into their box. Every evening, the street’s massive LED screen comes to life with an impressive display of light and sound. See for yourself!”
