Explore Las Vegas as an outdoor museum of American popular culture on a spirited 2-hour walking tour through the historic Casino District - ending in an arts neighborhood of famous murals, shops, cozy restaurants & cool bars. With a maximum of six guests, the tour is a private-like experience led by a top local guide, formerly the City's Cultural Planner who once ran the Neon Museum Boneyard. See where the town began as a railroad stop in the desert, hear about the Mob's legacy, walk through a few historic Glitter Gulch casinos, be awed by spectacular signs, bump into zany street buskers, salute the iconic neon cowboy Vegas Vic, check out the new Circa Resort that's changing Downtown, and be dazzled by the soaring digital canopy stretching 4 blocks in the sky. The tour ends in Fremont East, a developing arts district featuring the Container Park and Praying Mantis fire sculpture and concludes with a complimentary cocktail/beverage at the historic El Cortez Hotel of Bugsy Siegel fame.
