Whether you’re a local on a staycation or a tourist traveling to Southern Nevada, you don’t want to miss Downtown Las Vegas, where the Entertainment Capital of the World got its start. Adventure awaits DTLV’s vintage vibe, modern flair, world-class restaurants and sky-high hotels, casinos, and resorts. 

Sweet Stays 

El Cortez

Take a trip back in time with a stay at the El Cortez Hotel and Casino, which opened in 1941 and is now on the National Register of Historic Places. With vintage rooms and modern suites, El Cortez is a perfect location for everyone. Spend the day relaxing in the NV Spa with various amenities to prepare you for a Vegas-style night.

Plaza Hotel & Casino

Enjoy a stay at the newly renovated Plaza Hotel & Casino for a modern stay-cation. Revel in one of the Hotel Packages for special offers and deals to make your stay extra special. Relax on the 70,000 sq. foot pool deck or game it up and play Plaza’s fan-favorite Bingo after you’re done smoking the competition on the pickleball court. 

Circa Hotel & Casino

What’s not to love? The perfect combination of retro-modern mixed in with swanky gaming and sports betting opportunities: Downtown’s new Circa Hotel & Casino is ready to welcome you. If not for the lavish stay, check out the must-see pool ‘Stadium Swim’ with a view of a 40-foot tall high definition screen, swim-up bars, and selfie walls.

Dine Around Downtown 

Finger Licking Foodie Tours

We know you’re hungry. Discover downtown’s dynamic food scene, chef-driven restaurants and the most delicious eats with Finger Licking Foodie Tours. Whether you embark on a self-guided tour or take the traditional downtown tour, you’ll get a sampling of mouthwatering signature dishes from three stops, ranging only $79-99 per guest. 

Four Queens

In the ever-evolving culinary scene, Hugo’s Cellar is a bucket-list must, as the restaurant stays true to a bygone era. Venture beneath the action on the casino floor, and into Vegas 70s style. Unlike in The Bachelor, all women in attendance receive a rose. A throwback to old-school ambiance dining when tableside service was the fashion with salads made to order and cherries jubilee prepared with a little flare of fire! A timeless classic.

Things to See & Do

The Neon Museum

Home to some of the most famous, eye-catching signs in Las Vegas history, The Neon Museum gives guests the chance to see how old-Vegas meets modern times. Immerse yourself! Take your experience to the next level with a guided tour through their outdoor exhibition space, the Neon Boneyard, or head to the North Gallery for a show called Brilliant! that transforms guests into the history of Las Vegas through sight and sound. Each sign in The Neon Museum’s collection offers a unique story about its creation, inspiration and impact. 

Photo Tours Vegas

This 90-minute walking tour takes you through the East Fremont area with a professional photographer to capture the memories you make along the way. Photo Tours Vegas takes you on a journey from Container Park to Fremont canopy, all the way to the Golden Nugget, as you stop and pose for candid shots with a group of up to six guests. 

The Mob Museum

Ever wanted to learn about the mob? What about organized crime? Housed in the heart of Downtown is a Vegas sensation filled with immersive exhibits, rare artifacts, and storylines you won’t find anywhere else. Visit The Underground’s Speakeasy for a taste of history with authentic prohibition-style beverages and bites, or see prohibition’s impact on liquor with a Distillery Tour and sampling of spirits. 

the D Las Vegas

Sports meet Downtown. An ode to Canadian sports and culture, the D’s hockey-themed BarCanada is decorated with plenty of screens for those jaw-dropping last-minute scores. When you’re not cheering on your favorite team, gather around the table (socially distanced, please!) and test your luck with Las Vegas’ only remaining old-fashioned Sigma Derby on the D’s second floor.
