Las Vegas has a reputation of freedom...

One of the things you hear often about Las Vegas is "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" but there is an interesting side note to the City that many might not know as they book into that las vegas hotel and walk out on the strip.

Judges have consistently ruled that the walkway under the Fremont Street Experience is a public forum, meaning the First Amendment applies there. On the strip, the courts stated that such activities as handing out pamphlets, even ones that advertise the services of escorts or other "personal" services are protected there as well.
