Las Vegas, NV
Happy Monday, lovlies! I'm back from my little mini-vacation to Vegas with the hubby and, I have to say, it feels nice to be back.
As much as I love to go on vacation, there's just something nice about being home. But technically, we didn't go on vacation. Well, I did… he didn't/kind of did.
The reason we went was because he had a conference to go to and instead of him going for a quick trip by himself, we decided to take a couple extra days and hang out in Vegas. So while he was at his conference during the day, I just hung out by the pool and soaked up the sun.
I have to day, it was beautiful when we went to Vegas this time. It's not the first time I've been to Vegas, but it seems that every time I go, it's ridiculously hot. Not this time – it was in the mid-70s the whole time and just perfect. So while the hubby was in a freezing conference room, I either went shopping or went to the pool. I'm not a gambler but I love hanging by the pool with a tropical drink or beer in my hand and I like to shop. So both of those were fine for me.
Anyway, enough of my rambling.
When I was watching the last season of the Bachelor, I saw that he took one of his dates to this neon museum place in Vegas. It was so gorgeous and super cool at night with the neon signs lit up that I looked it up as soon as I found out we were heading to Vegas.
The neon museum doesn't normally do the night tours, like they depicted on the Bachelor (go figure) but it still looked like a fun place to visit. So I bought us a couple of tickets and we went to the sweet little place where most of the old neon signs go to die.
When we walked in, I was really surprised. It was much smaller than was depicted on the Bachelor show but still amazing, nonetheless.
You weren't allowed to roam the “boneyard” alone and they also had strict rules for photography. The tours were all guided tours that told of where the signs came from and how old they were and whatnot. A lot of the signs, as you'll see in the pictures below, were really old and dilapidated but some had been restored. Unfortunately, only a handful of them actually still worked.
This was the highlight of my mini-trip to Vegas and was super fun to go and see a part of Vegas' history when I was there. As many times as I've been to Vegas, I feel like there is still always something new to discover.
So here's about 1/2 of the pictures I took while we were at the little Neon Museum… and I would definitely go back the next time I'm in Vegas.
