Here the focus is sharing the best of Las Vegas off the beaten path. Why? Because locals know best. It’s a win win for local business owners and visitors who are looking for something different, from food, drinks, art, music, theater and history. Why only see the Strip when you don’t have to.
Las Vegas residents and curious travelers spend time at great spots around Clark County, visiting award winning wineries in Pahrump, the incredible Neon Museum or checking out new and exciting restaurants in Downtown Las Vegas. Have you visited Container Park? It’s part of a revitalized area in downtown Las Vegas bustling with food, clothes and art. It’s a very family friendly area where you can support local artists, foodies and small business owners.
Did you know about The Pinball Hall of Fame? It’s now at a new location south of the Mandalay Bay. It’s a mecca of machines, easy to spend hours playing pinball and old school video games.
The announcement from the Pinball Hall of Fame:
“Attention! The NEW Pinball Hall of Fame (PHoF) location has opened April 15, 2021 at it’s new dedicated location 4925 Las Vegas Blvd South, Las Vegas NV 89119.
