Welcome to the City of Lights! Join us as we show you some of the most iconic neon creations in Downtown Las Vegas, all while enjoying some happy hour sips and treats along Vegas’ classic Fremont Street.
You’ll discover early on how the vivid lights of neon got their start as you reach the El Cortez. This classic hotel and casino is one of the oldest in town (originally built in 1941), one of the few casinos offering a full array of coin-operated slots - just like the good ol' days. It has a deep connection to the mafia presence in old Las Vegas - once owned by a group that included notorious gangsters Bugsy Siegel and Meyer Lansky in 1945. If your guide decides to take you inside for your first drink, you’re in for a treat. Your neon happy hour tour begins outside the incredible Downtown Container Park. This modern take on a shopping center is built entirely out of repurposed shipping containers, Container Park plays host to boutique shopping, delicious eateries, art galleries, a soaring playground, and concerts and programming throughout the year. After your guide gives you a brief intro to the tour and the fascinating Fremont Street area, you’ll head out - ready for some happy hour fun!
Next, you’ll then turn down East Fremont Street, which boasts an impressive collection of classic and modern neon signs and vibrant displays. Everywhere you look you’ll see the glow of the lights, as your guide points out special signs and his/her favorite designs along the way. There’s so much to see both on and just off of East Fremont: bars, breweries, pop-up art installations, classic Vegas icons and some of the best people-watching in the world! Your guide will be sure to find a place for a drink that’s right up your alley. Who knows? Maybe you’ll get your drinks to-go, another the unique experience that Las Vegas allows.
As your guide leads you under the massive lights of Fremont St., you’ll get a chance to pass by attractions such as the newly-opened Cannabis Museum, a neon wall, and a neon-themed wedding chapel. As you walk down the street, watch zip-liners soar over your head and marvel at a giant martini glass-shaped bar (formerly a pool!). Your guide will share the history behind some of the classic neon signs you’ll see along the way, including, of course, the world-famous Vegas Vic of the Pioneer. You’ll also pass by the iconic marquees of the Golden Nugget and Binions. Both these hotels have been featured in many movies set in Sin City, so you’re sure to recognize them!
As part of your happy hour experience, you’ll enjoy a couple of happy hour drinks and a delicious snack with your guide. After drinks (or possibly with drink in hand) take it all in as you pause for a few minutes for a spectacular light show on the canopy strung above you on the street, known as the Fremont Street Experience. This dazzling production choreographs over-1,500 feet of lights with music from both decades past and today - a must see for Las Vegas visitors.
At the end of your tour, there are so many options to continue your epic night in Downtown Vegas. Perhaps you’ll head inside a nearby hotel for a final drink, or maybe follow your guide’s recommendation for dinner. Whatever your plans are after your tour, you’re sure to be radiating enthusiasm for all things Vegas!
