Vintage Vegas At The Neon Museum #runawaytovegas

Disclosure:  #runawaytovegas is a media trip, all travel, food and activities were sponsored.  All thoughts are my own.

I can finally cross The Neon Museum off my life list.  Ever since Audrey danced with cousin Vickie on the signs in Vegas Vacation I've wanted to visit.  You cannot go to Vegas without seeing the museum... it is magical.  Vintage Vegas was where the action was at - the history is exciting and seeing pieces up close really puts you in that era.  Or maybe it was me lost in my thoughts while walking the grounds... Tours are guided so you pretty much stay with the group - as long as you are in the docent's sight.  Our time spent there was too short so next time I'm in town, I'll be visiting again.  I just have to!  Maybe I'll do a night tour - anxious to see the place lit up!

Hi Xenia! I am stopping by since we're in the same group for the SITS Tribe Challenge! I saw the Neon Museum on an episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation once and REALLY want to go see it! I'm sure it is really fantastic! I haven't had a chance to even go to Vegas yet...but someday! I'm not the gambling type but the history of the city is what really intrigues me. Hope you have a terrific day and feel free to stop by www.lynchburgtnmama.com!

What an amazing place to go is not for the history and the stuff that you learn from the tour guides but the pictures that you took are awesome!

I think this was my favorite part of your trip followed by the food. I love all the vintage signs. Going to vegas as a kid this is just so nostalgic for me! Love it!

I saw this shop on a Pawn Stars episode! I want to visit the next time I'm in Vegas and check it out myself.. Hopefully before it gets too much warmer there. (Also, hi from a fellow SITS tribe member!)

Hi Xenia, I wanted to stop by and say hi as I am in your SITS Tribe Challenge! I didn't even know this museum existed! We are planning to go to Vegas in a few months and I will be adding this to our agenda! It looks awesome. Thanks for sharing!
