Since my move to Las Vegas, I have found some truly amazing places to visit. When my best friend, Carina, was here last week (Wait, was that last week... ? The combination of having recently had knee surgery and taking pain medication makes everything a little blurry. Please excuse my fogginess.), we paid a visit to The Neon Museum, also known as The Neon Boneyard. We had been wanting to go here since I moved to Vegas, but didn't realize that we needed to make a reservation to be part of the tour. So, finally, we made our reservations and looked forward to this highly anticipated neon adventure.
The Neon Museum is a non-profit organization that preserves, restores and collects what they call "the classic Las Vegas art form", neon signs. I can't urge you strongly enough to make your reservation and visit The Neon Museum. The tour embodies the Vegas retro spirit and I just know you'll love it. (Just take our advice and bring water. In the summer and early fall months, this is one hot hour.) Oooh, and the good news is that the museum will offer night tours in the future that will really allow the tour to shine.
PS) Carina and I were also lucky enough to visit the FABULOUS Liberace Museum. Unfortunately, after 31 years of operation, this sequined shrine will be closing on October 17th. If you happen to be in Vegas in the next ten days, you have to put on a feather boa and go to the museum. Trust me.
