In the heart of historic, vibrant and sometimes overlooked downtown Las Vegas, the California Hotel and Casino is part of one of the great Las Vegas attractions, the Fremont Street Experience. Like the wonderful show put on by the Bellagio Fountains, this is a completely free attraction with a dazzling light show on one of the world's largest video screens and a street filled with people simply enjoying themselves. California Hotel Las Vegas guests have benefited since this street was made a pedestrian-only promenade mall some years ago. It is a safe venue providing easy, casual access to all the attractions along the five block area. There are ten casino hotels that are part of this experience, so guests of the California Las Vegas have access to all the great shopping, casino excitement and varied restaurants provided by its neighbors.

The California Las Vegas relies on the popularity of its Fremont Street Experience and neighboring casinos for entertainment. Don't mistake this one entertainment venue as a lack of things to do in Las Vegas, as you'll be busy for a while just in this neighborhood alone. There are six California Hotel and Casino dining and drinking venues, serving quick snack bar fare, Asian and seafood specialties, and there's a 24-hour café. For ambience, locals and guests alike head to the Redwood Bar & Grill for great steaks and live piano music.
