I had the good fortune of meeting up with two of my favorite bloggers a few weeks ago. Leanne from Organize Your Stuff Now and Donna from Funky Junk Interiors. We hiked in Red Rock Canyon, (Donna posted about our day on her blog) laughed, took pictures, got lost a little, and talked a little bit about blogging. It was fun to get to know them and their personalities.
Donna was here in Vegas for a conference. And she had never been to Las Vegas. That was fun! We were able to show her things here that most tourists don’t get to see.
We had planned on going to the Neon Museum in Las Vegas. BUT the tours were booked and all three of us couldn’t go at the same time. So Donna booked a tour for the both of us for the next day. I was really excited, as I had never even heard of the Neon Museum before. (I know, what kind of resident am I, right?)
I picked Donna up from her hotel and we were on our way…
Can you tell what this pattern is??? It is interlocking Hs for the Las Vegas Hilton. Obviously it is on it’s side, but isn’t is gorgeous?
The only way to walk through the “bone yard” is by tour. It is very interesting , if you like history. AND, very eye appealing for any pro or non pro photographers.
I like the Sahara sign in particular because Hubby and I walked through the casino one last time a few days before it was imploded.
Not all of the signs are vintage, but most are.
The next sign is MY favorite. I think it might be yours too.
Can you believe all the detail? It was very fascinating to me.
I couldn’t keep my eyes off of it.
If you have been to Vegas before, can you tell what the pink diamond shape is from?
There were signs from dry cleaners, poker halls, old hotels, wedding chapels, and more.
The Neon Museum Tour took about an hour, but we could have easily stayed another 2, just to walk around and take more pictures. This is just a fraction of what I took that day. I tried to show you MY best pictures. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did taking them for you. AND another little bit of info…There is a night tour when the lights are lit up! Doesn’t that sound exciting?
Thank you Donna for a wonderful visit. Later that day we went to the new suspension bridge and to Hoover Dam. It was a blast. BUT, the REAL fun started in downtown Boulder City. But that post is for another day. Next Tuesday to be exact.
In the mean time head over to visit Donna and Leann’s blogs. You will LOVE them!!
Thanks for joining me today for the Neon Museum Tour.
Make it a wonderful Wednesday.
I don’t want you to miss out on my latest posts.
