    I am going to be in Vegas while the Life is Beautiful festival is going on. I am staying on the strip, but I like to spend a couple of evenings in downtown. What is the traffic and foot traffic going to be like? Is the entire Fremont street roped off? Can you still access the casinos?

    I have the same question can you still get to the Golden Nugget and the Fremont Hotel?

    Closures have already begun downtown. Getting downtown will be a challenge. In fact, next weekend will be pretty crummy altogether - expect surge pricing during LIB and I heart radio at T-mobile. The Fremont Street Canopy casinos run pretty much business as usual, since LIB affects Fremont East.

    I'm wondering as well. I'm actually staying on the south strip but going to the festival Sunday only. I'm thinking it's a good bet to get parking downtown early and catch some NFL games before entering the festival.
