The sleepy town of Newport, nestled between the banks of the Ohio and Licking Rivers, quickly rose from the profits of bootlegging to become the premier gaming destination of the United States. Join us as we explore the streets where gangsters made their millions, gamblers lost their fortunes and their lives, and ladies of the night earned their reputations. This two hour award winning tour begins with two gangster guides leading a raucous, high- energy presentation inside an old casino. Next, you’ll be entertained out on the streets of “Sin City” during a 90 minute walking tour of historic sites. You will see the buildings that housed casinos, brothels, and speakeasies. You’ll explore Newport’s connections to some of the most well-known crime figures like: Moe Dalitz, George Remus, and Dutch Schultz. Discover how this little town gave birth to the modern day gaming industry. (Credit: American Legacy Tours)
