The historic downtown is having a bit of a renaissance right now, in part because of committed investment from Zappos executives (the company is based in L.V.), who acquired First Fridays– a street festival that takes place on the first Friday of every month–from its original founders, Cindy Funkhouser, Naomi Arin, and Julie Brewer. The festival is focused on art and food, with local vendors of both kinds lining the streets in huge numbers. It’s a great way to get a feel for the local art scene, which is much more accessible than what you’ll find at the overly formal galleries on the strip.
