About Downtown Las Vegas
Downtown Las Vegas is where the city of Las Vegas began. You might also hear it being called Old Vegas or DTLV, as the locals call it. This is where you will find all of the very first hotels and casinos in Vegas like the El Cortez, the Golden Nugget, the Plaza, and Binions.
Downtown Vegas is not just a bunch of old buildings! About 10 years ago, a very wealthy man moved his business to DTLV, bought up a lot of land in the area, and started the Downtown Project. The Downtown Project is considered the “Revitalization of Downtown.”
This area of town was very cheap. Many locals started to buy property and start-up businesses in the area. Bars, restaurants, and boutique shops started popping up on Fremont Street, just east of all the casinos. We now call this area Fremont East.
As time passed, more and more people started to build in this area and it has become a very popular place for locals to hang out. Downtown Las Vegas is full of culture, arts, history, and FOOD!
