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 Helicopter Night Flight with Optional VIP Transportation
The experience was mind blowing, from start to finish the staff were friendly and fun. The gave us a clear safety briefing and instructions on arrival. Once in the helicopter we were given a flight over the strip to see all the buildings lit up with a guided tour through headphones. The pilot was professional.

Great helicopter tour. They maintain good safety measures. It was an amazing experience to see all the night lights of Vegas from the top. The duration of the tour was quite long enough. Worth the price.

Las Vegas Helicopter Night Flight with Optional VIP Transportation
Wonderful experience! Our driver was great, explained everything before we arrived. Once there the receptionist was so nice and professional. The gentleman that gave the briefing was funny but very informative. Our pilot and ground crew made sure we all understood the safety instructions but encouraged us to have fun . We had the best time and will definitely be back!

Las Vegas Helicopter Night Flight with Optional VIP Transportation
It was a great experience. The staff is awesome and they really care for your safety. They ride itself was about 12-15 min but it covers the whole Vegas strip in this package. I would definitely recommend anyone to try it for once. Its definitely worth it. Thank you 5 star Helicopters and Viator for such a great experience.

Fremont Street and Beyond... Discover Downtown Las Vegas
This tour was a whole lot more than we expected and were thoroughly impressed with Sean's knowledge and experience of the rich history Las Vegas has had. If you want to know more about the history of Freemont street and the surrounding area, then my wife and I strongly recommend this tour.

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.
