Sightseeing: Las Vegas, NV

Remember the days when Las Vegas was all glitz and glamour? The Rat Pack, Marilyn, the Mob…and all those great neon signs luring you into sin city. The Rat Pack, Marilyn and the Mob might be long gone, but those neon signs live on!

If you’re in the Las Vegas area and you feel like taking a break from the ringing bells and crowds, a fun excursion is a trip over to the Neon Museum Boneyard. The Neon Boneyard is an outdoor collection, a graveyard according to some, of the original landmark neon signs that used to grace the strip in its hay-day. The museum has refurbished a few of the signs and they once again stand tall and are displayed around the Vegas strip. The museum provides tours and it’s a fun stroll through the boneyard to explore these vintage signs and how they relate to the history of Las Vegas.

While in Las Vegas, consider staying at the Mandarin Oriental (see review here).

    Fun photographs! A friend on Flickr (magnetic_red) has taken some gorgeous black-and-whites of some of the boneyard signs.
