Here are a few ideas to get you started on fun times downtown:
Fremont Street Experience is a one-of-a-kind entertainment venue and pedestrian mall that is home to the Viva Vision canopy, offering hourly nighttime light-and-sound shows featuring 12.5 million LED lights and a 550,000-watt sound system. Fly under it all on Slotzilla, where riders take off from a 12-story, slot machine-themed platform and soar on a zip line at either 70 or a thrilling 110 feet above ground.
Next-door, to the east, is the entrance to the Fremont East Entertainment District, a pedestrian-friendly area that combines diverse street-life, local eateries, bars and cocktail lounges, lively entertainment, special events, retail, and residential living while preserving a historical gambling locale. On the corner of Fremont and Sixth streets, inside the Emergency Arts building, you’ll find the Burlesque Hall of Fame, dedicated to preserving the living legacy of burlesque as an art form and cultural phenomenon. It offers a collection of lavish costumes, stage props, photographs and personal effects documenting the careers and lives of burlesque dancers, comics and producers over nearly a century. The museum is a growing testament to the power and social impact of the art of the tease.
Vintage and antique seekers will find downtown Las Vegas to be a shopping haven with more than 20 independent stores comprising Antique Alley , located in and near 18b, The Las Vegas Arts District.
Why not “take in a show” while you’re here? Several reality TV shows are filmed on location in Las Vegas. The most famous is Pawn Stars, the History Channel’s series about the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop. Another fun place to visit is Rick’s Restorations, the site of the History Channel’s American Restoration series.
