Gambling Built the Sunset Strip: A Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour

Los Angeles, United States


50 minutesMobile & paper tickets accepted

Take this fascinating self-guided GPS audio tour of LA’s most famous boulevard and learn the crazy stories behind the legends that made the Sunset Strip what it is today.

For 80 years the Sunset Strip has sparked the culture of America with behaviors that have now become normal, like dancing to rock music, gambling at casinos, smoking Marijuana and same sex marriage.

And while the heat that the Strip generated from its nightlife sparks have spread out across the entire country, the sources of those sparks – the original ignition points that heated the action on the Sunset Strip – all came from gambling. This tour takes you through the Strip's transformation.

The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
