Vintage Vegas.

As you can tell I have a fondness for Neon that just won't quit. On one of our previous trips to Vegas we went and toured the Neon Boneyard. You can read those posts here and here

This Friday October 26th, the Neon Museum is throwing a Vintage Vegas party to celebrate the grand opening of the new visitors center, the historic La Concha motel lobby. WISH I COULD BE THERE!!

The La Concha Motel is a sea shell shaped Mid Century Modern architectural masterpiece, designed and built by architect Paul Revere Williams. It was saved from demolition in 2005 and will now serve as the Neon Museum's new visitors center. The Neon Boneyard is home to old Vegas by way of the neon signs that were rescued from demolition. Moulon Rouge, Flamingo, Stardust, and the Desert Inn along with many more. So happy to be visiting Vegas in November. We will once again take the Boneyard tour, and step back in time.
