Visiting the Neon Boneyard

I’ve got an obsession with neon signs, so the Neon Boneyard that houses all of the former neon signs of Las Vegas hotels is kind of like a slice of neon heaven to me.  It’s a magical glimpse into what the neon-lit night sky of Vegas used to look like! Some of the most classic mid-century Las Vegas signs are there—the Sands, the Stardust, and the Moulin Rouge to name a few. Don’t miss it next time you’re in the area.

Low-cost and quick? Win, win.
