The Neon Museum Las Vegas

Get off the strip and pay a visit to the Neon Museum.

We went to Las Vegas the weekend before Valentine’s Day and had a great time.  The itinerary included dinner at Iron Chef Morimoto’s restaurant (named after him) at the MGM Grand, followed by the magic show of Penn and Teller (excellent and fun) and then on the following day, a tour of the Neon Museum.  I had heard of this museum many times in the past but never made the time to leave the Las Vegas Blvd main strip to go past the old Fremont area to see the museum.  It was definitely worth a visit.  I love the vintage old neon signs and the history behind them.  It’s a tour that lasts a little over an hour and then they let you have a little time to wander around and take pictures.  You can also take pictures while the tour guide is talking but then usually there are a number of people in your way as you need to stick with the group during the tour.  They also have a cute little gift shop to stop in once you’re done.  Parking is free, but the surrounding neighborhood is just a little sketchy, but nevertheless, safe.  There were lots of people taking the tour on a Monday morning.


Unfortunately, this big skull head is from the Treasure Island pirate show all the kids loved to watch. It’s no longer running!

I travel, eat, blog, organize and re-organize, hunt for the unusual out of the usual, attempt many DIY projects, and can't go without boba for more than a week. The craziest road trip I ever took was to go to Sequoia National Park for a day - from Huntington Beach. The round trip was over 12 hours and the visit lasted about 2 hours. But the views were worth it!
