Our Local Tourist series resumes with more art in the city.

First stop will be to see & sign the Art of Healing Mural at the Clark County Government Center in rememberance of the 58 lives lost in our city's worst tragedy. For more info on other dates this is available in case you can't join us at this time please see the facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1509584242480331/

Then, we are going to where Vegas started, but not for a boring history museum tour. Let's search of more art, and quirkiness -to be fun & funky this time it's street art. I'll be using these as our guides for the driving tour (with photo op stops) https://streetartnews.net/2014/12/street-art-and-graffiti-in-las-vegas.html

Lunch can be at the nearby & well-reviewed Makers & Finders www.makerslv.com. I've also noticed many interesting stores on the revitalizing Main Street area that we can check out, now that the Main Street One-Way Couplet project is completed. Funky & cool vintage stores of both decor & vintage/retro fashion (even their names are fun) including Rockin' Bettie, Modern Mantiques, Retro Vegas, Patina Decor, Luxe Rust, Gypsy Caravan & Main Street Mercantile. These are very close to our lunch spot so we can walk off our lunch.

Since we are doing a driving tour, carpooling is encouraged. We could meet at Town Square in front of Whole Foods at 9:30am to head downtown & will send out my cell number the day before the event for those who want to meet us downtown. Please mention in comments if you would like to carpool & are able to drive if multiple vehicles are needed.
