A Visit to Downtown Container Park


One of coolest places I have ever been is Downtown Container Park in Downtown area of Las Vegas-off the strip. Downtown Container Park is a family-friendly outdoor shopping, dining, and entertainment place.  Made completely of shipping containers stacked upon each other, this unique venue offers a variety of boutique shops and food outlets. There is a kids play area with 30 foot slide and water area in the middle of it. I just thought it was cool in seeing all the used shipping containers being used for other things:










My favorite thing about Container Park is this cool piece right when you walk in:

  4. My husband and I go to Vegas every summer, but we've never been to Container Park. I think we need to make a point to visit that place next time we are out there.

  11. Neat photos! I had a strong interest in shipping container homes, because I care about the environment and living smart, but people say that you don't really save money going that route.

    1. I don't know about homes but I think this can be an idea for businesses.
