Downtown Las Vegas

Fremont Street, Las Vegas, Nevada

The Basics

Downtown’s famed Fremont Street is still home to historic casinos such as the Golden Nugget and El Cortez, as well as the Fremont Street Experience, a multisensory light and sound show using more than two million lights and the world’s largest audio-video system. Downtown’s Arts District is home to several art galleries, studios, and stores, and there are also museums scattered around the neighborhood, including the Natural History Museum, Mob Museum, and Neon Museum.

Downtown Las Vegas is best explored on foot, the better to soak up the sights and sounds of the historic district. Guided walking tours introduce visitors to the history and culture of the area, as well as its quirky side. Food tours include tasting stops at a handful of notable restaurants in addition to neighborhood exploration. Alternatively, pick up a bicycle from the bike share in front of Container Park and explore independently.

Las Vegas Strip Highlights Helicopter Tour
They weren't very clear in the details section as you are out in the helicopter with 4 other people, besides that the rest was great! Due to covid we could not talk but it would have been nice if our pilot said anything but he didn't say much! Other than that it was a good time. Would do it again.

Las Vegas Helicopter Night Flight with Optional VIP Transportation
Our pilot was funny and super nice. As well as our “safety crew” even though we had some intoxicated/difficult passengers. They handled it all so well. Our drivers were also super friendly the only complaint I have is our driver who took us back to our place threw trash out of her window while driving. Other than that overall a great time.

Las Vegas Helicopter Night Flight with Optional VIP Transportation
Great experience...reasonable pricing...awesome employees & pilots...waiting area is great Downside...transportation from & to the tour is subpar at best. 15 min late picking us up & had to wait almost a hr getting back to the hotel. Clean this aspect up & it would make the whole experience a 5 star experience.

Las Vegas Helicopter Night Flight with Optional VIP Transportation
I will always remember the view from up top and my engagement taking place in the sky! I’m normally afraid of heights but felt completely safe as the staff makes sure to go through all safety precautions and put you at ease. It is definitely worth the money!

When to Get There

Fremont Street comes alive with light shows and live entertainment every night of the week, but especially so on Friday and Saturday. There’s plenty to see and do during the day (galleries, museums, and stores) but nighttime, when the neon lights are lit, is the busiest.

The Neon Museum

Las Vegas is well-known for its neon signage, but in the 1990s, LED and LCD screens began replacing neon. In response, local preservationists saved neon signs in what was called the Neon Boneyard. Now, these symbols of the city’s heydey are honored at the Neon Museum, with more than 150 signs. Just north of downtown, the museum’s visitor’s center is in the renovated La Concha Motel lobby, a famed seashell-shaped, mid-century modern building.
