Did you know that Las Vegas began at the corner of Fremont Street and Main Street in 1905?

Let Las Vegas Walking Tours take you to this very point, where you can stand where the original settlers gathered when they got off the train and learn how one mayors’ vision has turned this area into the ‘jewel of the desert’ by bringing world-class arts, medical and business facilities to downtown Las Vegas.

Learn where to find a piece of the Berlin Wall in a men’s room and 1850’s chandeliers from the San Francisco Opera House. Walk down historic Fremont Street, made famous around the world by books, movies and television. Pass the known hangout of Dean Martin of the Rat Pack. Learn about the “Fremont Street Experience” light canopy and how it changed the face of downtown in the mid-1990s and sparked an unprecedented urban renewal that continues today.

Walk past living legends The PlazaGolden GateGolden Nugget. Photograph the infamous Vegas Vic as thrill seekers whiz by, 100-feet above on the Slotzilla zip line.  Discover the locale and hear about the infamous Mob Museum. See restored vintage neon signs and Las Vegas’ wackiest wedding chapel in Neonopolis and maybe even say hello to Pawn Stars expert appraiser Johnny at the Toy Shack.

Tour into the newly revitalized Fremont East and learn how one man’s vision and commitment to community has sparked perhaps the greatest downtown revitalization project in the United States. Touted as the next Silicon Valley, it’s also the ‘Greenwich Village’ of Las Vegas where you’ll find unique restaurants, shops, clubs and entertainment venues.

Step back in time with a picture by the El Cortez then finish with a tour through innovative Downtown Container Park, a shopping, dining, entertainment attraction partially made out of recycled shipping containers.

If you’re familiar with the saying “do you wanna sell it or pawn it?” then you’ll love the stroll past historic city buildings and a chapel made famous by Elvis Presley and other celebrities to the World Famous Gold & Silver Pawn. Known around the world by the wildly successful hit TV show Pawn Stars on History Television, you may even catch Rick Harrison, Corey and Chumlee filming the next season. Cool off next door at Pawn Plaza, the Harrisons brand new open-air retail center where Rick has been seen tending bar at his new restaurant.

Recent Reviews - Las Vegas Walking Tours

A must do for Vegas travellers… tours of downtown ticks all the boxes and was easily one of the highlights of Vegas. We’d encourage anyone who is in Vegas to change it up and see downtown on this great tour. Thanks again Kelly! We will be back next time.

- Kathryn & Andrew

Another great Gem in Vegas! This tour was so cool and so much fun I highly recommend it. With the use of pictures, facts and real life stories, you’re taken from the earliest days of wide open downtown Vegas to the current rebirth of this historic corridor. I was blown away by all of the knowledge that was shared about the city. Vegas was big to me before, but now it’s even bigger. After this tour, I realize there’s a lot more to see, taste and experience in the city. It was worth every second. Do something different on your next trip to Vegas – do this tour. You’ll be glad you did! Thanks again, Kelly! We had a great time!!

- Russ Talley

Great investment of time, added depth and insider knowledge to our visit. Kelly was a wealth of information on Vegas- the history, culture, architecture, politics, and characters of Vegas. We learned so much and were also given the inside scoop on places to go, see, eat, drink, explore. We would never have thought to explore east Fremont or places like Main Street casino without Kelly’s insights. A highlight of our trip!

- Greta Matthews

Fantastic!! We can’t say enough good things about Kelly and this tour. A must do to see the original Vegas!!!
