Explore Las Vegas as an outdoor museum of American popular culture on a spirited 90 minute walking tour through the historic Casino District and ending in a neighborhood of famous murals, cozy restaurants & cool bars. With a maximum of six guests, the tour is a private-like experience led by a knowledgeable guide, formerly the City's Cultural Planner, who also once ran the Neon Museum. 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 surprised by Downtown's spectacular signs - sometimes called our Neon Broadway, 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 that stretches 4 blocks in the sky. The tour ends in Fremont East, a new arts entrepreneur district at the famed Container Park, with a complimentary cocktail/beverage and a toast to renewed travel and to Las Vegas.
