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!
