Hi all, Been reading this forum for a while and finally joined up, mainly because I need some help I'm coming for a trip to lv next year in may. It's my first time to Vegas and I've been planning it on and off for the last year. Now I'm considering staying downtown on freemont street rather than on the strip as most would no doubt do on their first trip. My reasons for this are two fold 1) I like the fact everything is close downtown, I'm not going to be there for long (4 nights) so I'll be cramming a lot in, I also love the history of lv so getting to see the older side of town appeals 2) cost! With the trips I'm looking at I'll save around $150+ Now I'll certainly spend time on the strip too, but downtown just seems like a better base and with it not costing much to get to the strip think it may be a better bet Thoughts?
