The Pop Culture Walking Tour of Fremont Street
From USD 29.99
Experience the neon sights and sounds of old Las Vegas on this guided, 2-hour, small-group walking tour. Discover one of the most famous streets in Las Vegas — Fremont Street — and hear the stories of how Sin City got it’s start. See some of the most fascinating attractions in old Las Vegas, like the Fremont Street Experience, Downtown Container Park and the Mob Museum, to name a few. A complimentary cocktail or beverage at the historic El Cortez Hotel and Casino is included.
What to Expect
Meet your guide on the steps of the famed Mob Museum located in a 1930's courthouse in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas. Hear how the Museum got started by a famous Mayor, why it opened on Valentine's day and how it relates to the nearby Neon Boneyard with hundreds of old signs like the Silver Slipper.
Next, you'll head to Fremont Street - the original Strip - and step into some casinos from the classic 1950's and the Rat Pack era. It's pure Vintage Vegas, recalling movie locations like James Bond and Diamonds Are Forever and you'll even stop by the bar once frequented by Frank Sinatra. You'll see Fremont as a zany street, always in performance with the largest video screen on earth, aerial zip line tourists, stage bands, flare bartenders, and a cadre of "buskers", from pink feathered showgirls to a flock of Elvis impersonators. It's like Carnival in Las Vegas every single day.
Your guide will share some little-known stories of Downtown Las Vegas, that even many locals haven't heard. Along the way, you'll encounter more pop culture surprises like a giant fire sculpture from the Burning Man Festival, a big piece of the Berlin Wall in an eyebrow-raising place, and you can even have your photo taken for free with a big pile of cash siting on a poker table, a million dollars to be exact. Most of all, you'll experience world class neon and understand how electric architecture gave Las Vegas its technicolor personality. 
Your route even takes you past two of the world's most famous giant neon cowboys: brothers from another mother as they are often called. All along the way your guide will share some local tips like the best buffets, great happy hours, the best places for an authentic old school Vegas dinner, and where the last coin operated slots can be found.
Finally, you'll trek to a new entertainment district with street murals, clubs & bars, cozy restaurants, art galleries, fun stores and an ongoing series of festivals. It's a place where old and new meet up at the very same street corner: the oldest historic casino and the shopping complex called Container Park.
At tours end, you're offered a complimentary drink at the legendary El Cortez Casino to celebrate this quintessential urban field trip through Downtown. Viva Las Vegas!

HI Jessica~The tour does go into some of the casinos which allow smoking. Otherwise most of the tour is outdoors and last about 2 hours. The baby carrier would be the best option. If you have any other concerns, I suggest... More
