Satisfy your sushi craving at Bocho Sushi

Owned by Le Thai chef Dan Coughlin, Bocho Sushi is named for the Japanese word for “knife.” The traditional Japanese cuisine, with standard seating and a sushi bar, is the perfect classy, gourmet date spot.

Superman your way down Fremont Street on Slotzilla

If you’re into thrills, then you’ll love ziplining down Fremont. Slotzilla is a 12-story, multi-million-dollar slot machine inside a zip line attraction. Get high and fly — literally — over Vegas icons like the showgirls, martini glass, and pink flamingo. Best enjoyed if not afraid of heights.

Grab a drink and take a walk down The Fremont Street Experience

Not sure what to do? No problem. After a trip to your favorite Downtown Las Vegas dispensary, cruise down to Fremont Street, pick up some munchies, watch the light shows, catch a show, and observe all the wacky whirlwind downtown Vegas has to offer. You’ll be anything but bored.
