Description: Celebrate Las Vegas as America’s outdoor museum of popular culture in a two hour downtown walking tour from the Plaza Hotel to the Plaza of the new Container Park. Led by a spirited well informed local guide, this urban field trip along 10 legendary blocks will explore downtown’s historical and cultural pop streetscape including: the architecture and spectacle of neon as the city’s defining character; the historic casino hotels, each with its own unique story; the larger than life personalities that shaped both civic and gambling histories; the family of pop culture museums (only in Vegas!) from the mob to burlesque; an historical look at downtown’s attractions from the new 10 story zip line to a fire breathing praying mantis. You’ll get a first-hand view of the new entrepreneurial East Fremont with its urban chic eateries, shops, bars and intriguing new public art. You’ll get an overview of the 6 neighborhoods that shaped downtown and the ethnic and dive rse cultural groups that make up the city. It’s the epic story of how an unlikely railroad stop in the desert grew into the newest and the most remarkable city of the 20th century.
