THE HISTORY OF FREMONT EAST
In 2002, the city of Las Vegas created an entertainment district in the heart of downtown Las Vegas: Fremont East. The Fremont East Entertainment District (FEED) sits adjacent to the popular tourist attraction, the Fremont Street Experience.
In 2007, the Las Vegas Redevelopment Agency and Fremont East property and business owners committed $5.5 million through a public-private partnership for a major streetscape improvement for the Fremont East Entertainment District. This three-block renovation included pedestrian-friendly street redesign, landscaping and retro-looking neon signage.
Fremont East is a pedestrian friendly community that combines diverse street-life, local businesses, eateries, side-walk cafes, bars and cocktail lounges, lively entertainment, retail, and residential living while preserving a historic gambling house.
FREMONT EAST BOUNDARIES
Currently, The Fremont East Entertainment District is comprised of a total of 6 blocks. The boundaries are from Las Vegas Boulevard East to 8th Street and then from Ogden Street South to Carson.
