A thoroughfare utilized both before and after the war, now host to a centralized residential region known as Freeside.
The street runs the perimeter of the former Vegas metropolitan area, through dilapidated ruins that once served as a commercial district. The neighborhood has built up around the intersection of Fremont and Las Vegas Boulevard.[Non-game 1]

- Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p. 42: "Base of Operations: Outer and Inner Freeside [Zone 2C]":
"Mr. House directed the tribes to use his sizable quantities of pre-war construction materials to build the crude (but effective) outer walls that separate The Strip and Freeside from the rest of New Vegas. While Mr. House valued the area around Fremont Street, he ultimately viewed it as secondary in importance to the Strip itself and he had a second, inner wall that separated the two areas. When NCR prospectors (and eventually the army) arrived in the region, people typically went straight for The Strip, leaving Freeside (as it had become known by locals) as an informal stopping point."
