Many Las Vegas casinos are so big that you can easily spend a lot of time walking around one casino alone!

Along with the many bars directly on Fremont Street like OneBar, D Bar, and Circa Bar, Downtown Las Vegas is home to a number of incredible bars throughout the area. Take a step inside of the hotels to find gems like Bar Prohibition!, BarCanada®, LONGBAR, Vegas Vickie’s, and if you go all the way up, Legacy Club atop the 60th floor of Circa Las Vegas. All your walking deserves a refreshment!
During your Downtown Las Vegas walking tour, carve out some time to grab a bite to eat. You can grab on-the-go meals like a hotdog from American Coney Island or barbecue from the Project BBQ food truck, or you can plan a sitdown meal somewhere casual such as 8 East or Saginaw’s Deli. Once you’re done with your walking tour, treat yourself to a nice meal at Andiamo Steakhouse or Barry’s Downtown Prime to refuel your body and rest your feet.
One of the best ways to get your steps in is with a shopping spree. One of the best places to shop in Vegas is at the Downtown Container Park that offers shops, fun restaurants, bars, and live entertainment to help make your walk even better.

Going to a museum in Las Vegas might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but it should absolutely be on your walking tour list.

You aren’t going to want to walk much if your feet start killing you. While the heels and dress shoes are definitely nice for some Vegas opportunities, also pack some comfortable shoes that you’ve already broken in to avoid sore feet or blisters. Packing a first-aid kit with band-aids can also be a life saver!
While a lot of Downtown Las Vegas activities can be found inside or under the Viva Vision canopy, there are also some open spaces where the weather can affect your plans. Check the weather and temperature forecasts before your trip so you can pack properly, then also check every day so you can dress for the weather.
Go in one direction while exploring. Downtown Las Vegas has many levels, and it’s easier to walk between them if you stick in one direction. For example, go from the first floor of the Circa casino, up to the third floor of the sportsbook, then to the 60th floor to Legacy Club – don’t skip around from the sportsbook to the casino to the bar.
Embarking on a walking tour is a great way to see Las Vegas. You can take in all that Downtown Las Vegas has to offer and stop along the way for a drink or a bite. Book a room at Golden Gate Las Vegas to be in the heart of downtown, and the perfect starting point for your walking tour.
