If you do one thing in Vegas…

No matter where the destination, the historical significance of a location is something I am generally interested in. Las Vegas, with its shiney exterior and ever-evolving skyline, seems like is it a perpetual newborn, never having a history to stand on. However, we can’t ignore the golden era that made Vegas what it is today. No matter the reason for visiting, a concert, a quick get away, or in my case a modern Vegas wedding, do this one thing- go to this one place to find some beautifual history.

The Neon Museum, also known as the “Boneyard,” is Las Vegas’ richest gem. Since 1996 it has been dedicated to collecting, preserving, and studying the iconic signs of Las Vegas’ past. Fortunately, the museum allows the public to be a part of this important mission by opening it’s doors to their neon sign boneyard that covers a two-acre space. The museum’s office and gift shop are nestled in the former La Concha Motel on Las Vegas Blvd. 

Strolling amoung these giants is breath-taking. To consider the intense work it took to make an entire, stories-high, sign out of individual bulbs! In a digital age, we take glowing beauty for granted and there is something magical about these gorgeous, weathered signs that make this attraction truly special. 

You can purchase tickets online and reserve a time to wander the boneyard, day or twinkling night!

  • By happenstance, I stayed in the NoMa neighborhood of DC last week. I felt like I had been dropped in the east coast version of Portland! My stroll through this food Mecca is up on the blog!
  • Monday mantra 🌈
  • Yep, it’s starting to look this way again. You can find this art piece at my favorite Los Angeles museum @thebroadmuseum. Barbara Kruger’s untitled work was made in 1989 for the Women’s March on Washington for reproductive rights.
  • Another day, another airport ✈️ This time picking someone up, hence the hanging out in an old cell lot in my new @dazey_la tee 🌵🌸 Get $$ off your Dazey LA purchase with code SHILOHADM
  • Can I just find a way to bottle that feeling of finding that perfect place with the best comfort food after a long day of seeing the sites? Found mine in NoMA @stellinapizzeria
  • Going to a city’s local sports venue is like taking in a slice of the city itself. The people, the food, the culture- all in one place with entertainment to top it off! For @mlb games, I always look up the “must eat” speciality at each stadium 🏟 I got the half smoke chili dog “all the way”’style here at Nationals Park..
  • My favorite metro system in all the land 🌸
  • Rain in a city of museums... I’ll take it 🌧
  • Travel is so enriched by sharing it with your child. I used to think that having a kid would mean putting TRAVEL on hold and only going on VACATION (two difference things). But she is ride or die & has seen more of this world than my husband and I combined by the time we were adults. In this digital age, along with our verbal sharing of memories, she remembers a lot of her travel experiences. I’m one lucky mother.
