From 6 pm - 2 am they play a variety of music from bands like Imagine Dragons, The Killers, Shakira, Tiesto and more while projecting this light show.

While they do have social distancing guidelines in place as of now, things might change in or before June, so we recommend checking their calendar to see what's happening.

Typically, the Fremont Experience includes free concerts, a zipline, museums, special attractions and much more to enjoy.


3. Take a Food Tour 

If you are not in Vegas for Restaurant Week or just looking for a local food expert to show you where to find the best eats are in Las Vegas, consider taking a food tour.

Of course, once things get back to normal, many of the popular shows should return. That said, there are no major musicals scheduled for June of 2021 as of yet.

StubHub's calendar lists other shows this month.

 

 

There is usually at least one Cirque de Soleil show playing in Vegas. Check to see if any of these shows have returned:
