“Vegas is the only town in the world whose skyline is made up neither of buildings, like New York, nor of trees, like Wilbraham, Mass., but signs.” – Tom Wolfe
When we first talked about going to Vegas, the Neon Boneyard was at the top of my must see list. If there’s an art style in Vegas, it’s all in the neon signage. The Neon Museum is still a fairly new museum located in downtown Vegas. They have been acting as a sort of historic protector of the neon lineage of Vegas well before the opening of this museum. The museum opened the boneyard tour to expose people to this dying art form. I read how knowledgeable the tour guides were from online reviews. The tour did not disappoint and our guide was full of information. At times I didn’t think she was going to stop for a breath! She clearly loved these signs and was proud of their history. They do not let you stray out of eye shot so it’s a bit restrictive. They ask you book photo shoots separately at a cost. This is a great wedding photo location. We saw two couples there during our tour. If you’re in Vegas, we highly recommend taking a cab to the boneyard. Book your tickets online in advance. Our preferred time slot was booked so we had to go earlier. Here are some visuals to peak your interest.
