We were back in Vegas (really Henderson) for a long weekend and I was looking for a reason to head to downtown (old town) Las Vegas and look for street art. So, I sold our nephew and nieces on the SlotZilla zip line. Little did they know of my after zip plan.
SlotZilla: The zip line takes you above Fremont Street for a few blocks. There are two lines, a zip line (you sit) and a zoom line (higher than the zip line and you fly super-hero style). The zip lines exit out of the top of a large “slot machine” – aka SlotZilla.
More impressive than the zip line (at least to me) was the street art, of course. The photos featured here were all within a few blocks of SlotZilla and Fremont Street and can be easily and safely found. Many were created for the Life is Beautiful Festival 2013 and 2014.
We categorize the photos by theme. Unfortunately, I only had my phone, so the images are not great. For other Las Vegas street art we captured on a previous visit, see the post Las Vegas Arts District Murals and Street Art. For a map see Las Vegas Street Art Map.
