    I'm not sure how to get to the casinos just off Freemont.

    We have been downtown plenty of times but we never venture away from the GN, FQ, Binion's area except for one trip to the Plaza. I want to play at a few and grab a chip at every casino. Are there signs or is it obvious where to walk to the other casinos not within the FSE?

    Thanks

    No signs, but the area is so easy to navigate you should be able to find the outliers without any problem. I'd start at The Plaza...you mentioned you'd been there before. Turn right (North) before you get to The Plaza on Main and you'll see Main Street Station ahead on your left and The Cal on your right. From the Cal you should be able to see Downtown Grand without any problem. That takes care of everything on that end. To find the El Cortez, walk through the entire length of the canopy AWAY from The Plaza. Keep going a couple of blocks and the El Cortez will be on your left, still on Fremont Street. Did I miss anything guys?

    I'd start out at MSS...walk through The California -> then to Las Vegas Club -> Plaza -> Golden Gate -> 4Queens -> Binions -> GoldenNugget -> The D -> Fremont -> El Cortez -> Then loop back to Downtown Grand.
    They're all next to each other if you do it that way (sans the end where you go to El Cortez and back to DTG)

    Yes, but these 2 have slots only so no chips at these spots.

    If you're not staying downtown, I'd have a cab drop you off at Plaza...play there & then turn left out of the Plaza & walk a long-block to MSS. Cross over the MSS bridge into the Cal. Exit the eastern-most doors of the Cal onto Ogden & stroll down to the DTG. From there, continue on Ogden until 6th st. & go right one block to the El Cortez.
    Then, exit the El-Co onto Fremont & go west. You'll see 'theD' on the left, just as the FSE canopy begins. From 'theD', exit west, walk a few yards into the Four Queens. Take the west exit from 4-Queens, cross Fremont & go into the Fremont. Then cross Casino Center, hit Binion's & then the Nugget. Exit west from Nugget & go into Golden Gate. Then cross Fremont to LVC.
    You'll be back right near the Plaza, where you can almost always catch a cab right across Main St. from DuPar's.
    Good luck & have fun!
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    Hitting each casino could do serious damage to your hands. All kidding aside, I like TIMSPEED's plan but the other ones are also good.
