Local Impact: How you will help the local community by joining this tour:

  • The Vintage Vegas Arts Tour focuses heavily on repurposed spaces. Your guide will discuss the development of Las Vegas, in particular “First Fridays,” an art festival held monthly with tons of local artists selling homemade crafts.
  • The Arts Factory is another stop that gives you the chance to connect with local artists, as well as a chance to either purchase their art or donate to support them.
  • Perhaps most touchingly, you visit the Oct 1 Healing Garden, created in the wake of the Mandalay Bay shootings. This previously empty lot has become a community hub and safe space in which both locals and tourists can gather to recall the memories and stories of those lost in the shooting.
