DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS
The charms and history of Las Vegas’s foundation.
Most visit Las Vegas and never leave The Strip. Mega hotels feature gambling, amazing stage shows like Cirque du Soleil and world-class restaurants by renowned chefs such as Mario Batali.
While old hotels are replaced by newer and bigger buildings, the history of Las Vegas remains intact downtown.
Famous mobsters like Bugsy Siegel and the original poker sharks breathed life into this same casinos you see today along the bright Fremont Street—El Cortez, Binion’s and the century-old Golden Gate Casino.
Visit the Neon Museum, where broken-down signs of past hotels can be seen as they’re fixed and erected around the downtown area.
Recent investments are redefining the edges of the downtown area. Downtown Container Park features live music and plenty of dining and shopping options.
In charming downtown Las Vegas, just a short taxi from The Strip, you’ll certainly see why this is the go-to spot for local Nevada residents.
