Downtown Las Vegas is more run-able than the Strip, in the sense that once can actually cross the street. While not exactly bucolic, running downtown gives a sense of the “Old Las Vegas”, which slid into decline with the development of the Strip but has come back some over the past 10 years. Downtown is about 2 miles north of some of the northernmost sections of the Strip (Stratosphere Hotel), and can also be reached by bus. Our route begins on Fremont St., with some cool old neon signs, through some residential areas with a combination 1950s/1960s typical Las Vegas homes, and lawyers’ offices/pawn shops. The route concludes with the ‘Fremont Street Experience’ pedestrian mall, and some of Vegas’ original hotels such as the Golden Nugget.
