Fremont Street Experience & Mob Museum Walking Tour

Fremont Street Experience: The world’s largest venue/canopy of light, sound and action is home to Viva Vision, the largest state of the art LED screen with over 12.5 million energy-efficient LED lamps with over 550,000 watts of concert quality sound to experience concerts, special events, New Year’s Eve celebrations and roaming street performers throughout the year. This $100 million investment and the continued improvements have resulted in successful and ongoing downtown redevelopment.

The Mob Museum: This building at 300 Stewart Avenue in downtown Las Vegas opened in 1933 as the U.S. Post Office and Courthouse. With the support of federal, state and local grants, the building was renovated. The nation’s leading museum designers were hired to create an institution telling the true story of organized crime and law enforcement in America. The museum opened in 2012 and after the renovations that restored many of the building’s historical features, it earned LEED Silver certification.

Additional fee applies. This tour is limited to 45 people and will be listed as an option when you register. This tour will return before the members luncheon.

Learn how the Vegas magic happens with these behind-the-scenes experiences of the Cirque du Soleil – KA Show at the MGM Grand.

Go inside the ropes and learn how the technical wizards of this Canadian troupe make the $165 million theater production come to life 10 times a week. The KA performance lacks a conventional stage with a permanent floor; instead, two giant moving platforms and five smaller lifts and platforms appear to float through a bottomless space.
