As an “influencer in the wild”, I am constantly scoping out fabulous places to take (occasionally) fabulous pictures in my (mostly) fabulous outfits.
So when I found out that Downtown Las Vegas (DTLV) has gorgeous murals on every corner and side street, I knew I needed to see as many as I could. My (loving & patient) fiancé has officially been dubbed an “Instagram husband” because he was a great sport AND got some great shots of me!
So here’s my take on the murals of DTLV. We were walking in 85-90 degree weather so we only stopped for so many pictures, but if you follow my general starting and ending points you can easily see many more!
Where To Start – THE Las Vegas Mural
We were staying on the strip and had a lunch reservation at the top of DTLV, so we took a LYFT to our first location.
I immediately got distracted by all the side street murals, so our first stop ended up being two murals instead of just the original first one.
We started with the famous “Greetings From Las Vegas” Postcard Mural. Surprisingly, there was no line, but we were also there at 10 am on a Wednesday.
Mural #2 – I Heart You!
Across the street was the cutest mural. The wall was plastered with pink and red hearts with the words “choose love” at the top. Although it was not on our original list, I had to take a detour.
It was on a little side street and might have been my favorite one I came across! That’s the best part about the murals in DTLV, everywhere you turn, there’s a different mural.
Mural Stop #3 –
A few blocks later we found the Flamingo Mural. A flamingo mural obviously calls for posing like one, right?
Stop #4 – 👎🏼
I had found another blog where the writer talked about the cutest mural – a pair of red lips!
Without a doubt, that had to be added to my list. We walked about 10 minutes north, passing tons of cute murals along the way. As I said before, DTLV is packed with murals on every side street!
When we got there, we discovered the business “Kiss Bail Bonds” had closed.
Alas, they had painted over the mural. A tragedy!
The only reason I’m leaving this unsuccessful stop in this blog post is I’m hoping that someone else sees my post and can avoid the mistake by having up-to-date and accurate information.
Mural Stop #5 – Donuts or Go Nuts
Our final spot was quite close to where we were having lunch. When we discovered it was a fun donut shop and not just a mural of a donut on a wall, we had to go inside. We had some time to kill before our lunch anyways.
After much contemplating and a bit of drooling, we got the birthday cake oreo donut and it was fantastic.
They even had a cute little patio in the back for us to enjoy our donuts and iced coffee (a welcome break from walking in the heat!)
Bottomless Mimosas? You’ve Earned It!
We ended our trip at a great restaurant – Downtown Terrace Kitchen & Bar. I had avocado toast and my hard-working Instagram husband/fiancé had the chicken club. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals, but we were really only there for the bottomless mimosas. For only 18$ per guest, you get two flavors of juice, and as many carafes as you want for 90 minutes. We definitely got our money’s worth 😉
If I could do it again, I’d spend more time after lunch to continue finding more murals. I know that I only skimmed the surface of the beautiful art and murals available to see in Downtown Las Vegas.
