    It's a good visit if you have a few minutes. It's self guided and they have some interesting things. If you want to see how Vegas started, this is the place to visit.  more »

    Fun place to visit. And super cheap! I would definitely recommend if you have nothing else to do. Also staff is friendly!

    This truly is a hidden gem in Las Vegas. Many people - especially tourists - don't know about it. There is so much to learn here about the history of Las Vegas. If you love learning, I highly recommend visiting the Mormon Fort. Even if you aren't a history buff, just seeing the artifacts, the museum, and the fort itself is worth the trip. For $1/person, how can you go wrong? I must say, it's probably the best $2 I've spent in a long time for my son and me.

    This was a nice change of pace from the glitzy strip. It reminded me of the frontier nature that Las Vegas used to be.

    Interesting place to visit if you're into history. Visit the location where Las Vegas started and learn how and why it grew to be the city it is today. It's a must see for Fallout fans.

    The place is great, Followers of the Apocalypse provide first-class service regardless of either you a NCR squatter or a local from Freeside.

Where to stay in Las Vegas

Most Las Vegas hotels increase their room rates on the weekends, so if you have a flexible schedule, avoid Fridays and Saturdays and take advantage of package deals that include shows, meals, and gambling coupons. Remember also that if you stay at any one of the lively casino hotels, you may not be able to get a good night's sleep for the duration of your trip. If you come to Vegas to stay but not necessarily play, try one of the non-gaming hotels or explore the quieter areas surrounding the city.
