Get ready to explore Downtown Las Vegas as if it were an outdoor museum of American pop culture! This walking tour begins on the steps of the famed Mob Museum and ends with a complimentary cocktail in a charming courtyard of the new Arts District! Explore 10 historic blocks and discover where the city began as a western outpost in the desert. Check out Glitter Gulch showcasing the legendary casinos of Downtown with their iconic neon signs; pause at the original red-light district or see the city's oldest pawnshop (not Pawn Stars!). You'll also get the chance to hang with the neon sign cowboy, Vegas Vic! Feel like 007 as you visit the casino where the World Series of Poker started; see the hotel made famous in Back to the Future, or step into a casino once owned by Bugsy Seigel. Your local expert tour guide, who was once the Urban Arts Coordinator for the City, will include some hidden gems that makeup part of the lore of Las Vegas - with an eye to some of the enduring mythic themes that give Las Vegas its unique personality. You'll finally end the tour on the “other side of Downtown,” Fremont East, where you can check out the fire-breathing Praying Mantis sculpture from the Burning Man Festival – a cultural counterpoint to the city’s historic neon signs. Finally, sit back and relax with a cocktail beverage as you toast to the enduring story of Las Vegas.
