The Las Vegas Walk of Stars was begun in 2004 as a way to celebrate the lives of the people who have greatly contributed to key aspects of the city.
The stars are embedded along a four-mile stretch on the Las Vegas Boulevard, and specifically between Rusell Boulevard and Sahara Avenue.

In 2018 however, a few changes were made to the Walk of Stars. This involved the removal of half of the 82 stars in efforts to install security bollards along the Strip. Security officials involved in the process revealed that the stars, including those of Rich Little, John Stuart, and Elvis Presley, among others, could not be saved to allow for relocation.
Presently, less than half the stars remain. These are still an opportunity for you to walk in the steps of some of the city’s stars. Each star embedded in the ground is 350lbs and typically includes the name of the honored recipient, as well as their area of specialty.
The most recent, and perhaps the last star to be embedded on the walk in the foreseeable future, was that of Pete’ Big Elvis’ Vallee. The star was embedded at The Piano Bar at Harrah’s right at the entrance of the hotel. Presently, there are no plans to include more stars on the Las Vegas walk, but visitors can explore the remaining stars and learn more about the stars who have placed Las Vegas on the global map.
The Las Vegas Walk of Stars is worth your time whenever you are visiting The Strip.
Note that Las Vegas Walk of Stars is currently in the process of being relocated to The Line Promenade. Once fully installed, it will be located in an area near the High Roller. Currently, an expected completion date is unknown.
