A Tour of Downtown Las Vegas

The Fremont Street district was known as the “original Las Vegas Strip” over 50 years ago. Within the last decade, Fremont Street East and its surrounding neighborhood has been under revitalization, and has introduced an updated look to bring people back into the area.

This includes the much awaited opening of Container Park, an open area of locally owned retail shops and eateries all constructed of recycled shipping containers; the Inspire Theater, a two-story structure featuring a theater, a full bar, a cafe, and a conference-style screening room; and the Emergency Arts building, which supports local artists and businesses.
