We always make a point of going Downtown at least once each trip but although we aren't prudes in any way, the go-go dancers both inside and outside the Fremont St. casinos, the topless Pirate Woman, topless Nuns and large numbers of pushy fancy dress characters seem to us to be bringing the tone down in an increasingly sleazy fashion! Okay, the area has always been a mecca for adults but some families still visit to see the lights show with kids in tow and there are a lot of aggressive ticket and timeshare touts, beggars and down and outs around. When we visited Main St. Station buffet for the first time, we were very impressed by the value and quality of the food but there is a prominent notice on their front door stating " No guns, knives or weapons allowed" and on the walk from Fremont St., there were a lot of sad and desperate individuals lining the route. Another drawback was the very smoky Fremont casinos and on a personal note, the much publicised looser slots were very mean and tight for us. We really enjoyed the loud rock bands on the stages but overall not a classy area at all and not for the faint- hearted! Great fun for adults, bur proceed with caution if travelling there with kids or strait- laced friends!
