This last photo was taken by my friend Katy! Thank you lady! I went to The Neon Museum with her and her husband and took a ton of photos in the hot hot hot sun. I thought coming from Texas would make me more prepared for the heat, but man oh man standing outside for an hour mid morning never felt toastier.
The signs are so big in person – there were a few that I couldn’t get good photos of because they wouldn’t fit in one shot. I love neon things (my room in high school was full of little neon signs, light-up globes, lava lamps… very classy) so it was really fun to see all of the old styles and the way they’ve evolved as Vegas has grown. I recommend taking the tour if you’re gonna be in Vegas! They also offer night tours, but they fill up faster.
The only bad part of vacation is that eventually it’s over and now it’s back to the grind, BUT luckily for me the grind ain’t so bad.
