We went on vacation the first week of August so you know me, I had to find some strange or different thing's to do. So to start our vacation on Saturday July 30th we went on the Gangster Walking Tour Of Newport, Ky. Let me tell you this was an AWESOME time. We had a blast. We had two tour guides and they were great. We learned so much about the history of Newport. For those of you who may not know it Newport was the first Vegas. It was around before Vegas. It had the gamblers, the gangster and the woman of the night. It grew to be the premier gaming destination of the United States. This is a 2 hour tour that starts with a presentation inside the Dueling Piano Bar. Then you will hit the streets with your tour guides for a great tour that last about 90 minutes. The tour guides will keep you entertained and if you get the tour guide Mac The Knife you will not be able to stop laughing at him. I will post a picture of me and him and some more pics on here. This tour was voted Best Of The City- Best Walking Tour by Cincinnati Magazine. One of the top 10 thing's to do in Kentucky by Southern Living Magazine. Tour times are Saturday 10:30am 1:30pm and 5:00pm. They are at 18 E 5th street Newport, Ky. The webpage for them is http://www.americanlegacytours.com/
