Downtown Las Vegas or Old Vegas has a tourist side, but it’s also a place that locals actually hang out with. From the time we lived here in 2013 until our return in 2019, we have seen how that has changed drastically.
In 2013, Zappos is right moved their headquarters to the city center and awarded $ 350 million in assistance to revitalize downtown Las Vegas. Tones of development have occurred and they have turned rather worn-out areas into new spaces for start-ups, new restaurants, small homes and art installations.
Fast forward to the present day and has become a popular place for both locals and tourists. The closer you get to experiencing the Fremont Street Experience, the more tourists you will find, and the further east you go, the more locals you will find.
