The Fremont Street Experience is ranked as the Number 3 BEST PLACE TO VISIT in the USA.

FINALLY A top 10 list we can enjoy.

Wow, the bed bugs I am surprised about. We are a small company and I usually get 3-5 calls a week regarding them.

ugh. Bedbugs. They need to just go away. Do you get the calls from people who have them or from people who are worried about whether they have them? I wonder if the hotels are infested yet?

I am glad that we got on a top 10 list, but really? The FSE as the third best place to visit? That does not say much about the rest of the places in the US. FSE is cool and I love going there (will be there Sat. night) but....ya know?

You need to do a better job of reporting because you reported the list incorrectly.

It was voted as one of the top ten FREE THINGS TO DO in the U.S.

That's a little bit different than a list of best places to visit.

But at least it's still a positive top ten list!

I enjoy Fremont St. 'cause my hosting of friends on a first-time visit has pretty much fallen into a standard m.o. Go to the Strip... watch their wide-eyed fascination revive a little smidgen of the goosebump sense of novelty I felt on my first visit... wwwwaaaaiiiiiiiit for it... offer a sympathetic wink when complaints ensue about high prices and the snobby demographics who pay them... bide the disillusionment after the large amounts of tourist families bolster the inevitable complaint about my friends' antics since the "liar" TV gave them a different impression of how much rowdiness will be tolerated outside a VIP room or private party in this city... lead their belligerent, whiney a**es to Fremont St... toast some drinks to the commendation that I really know how to find a place with their "kinda folks".

Fremont St. is the saving grace for a host whose vast majority of friends want to see Vegas sights/sites, but prefer rowdy and affordable over nerfy and posh at the end of the day.
