I'm heading to Las Vegas next week for a work trip. Vegas doesn't really seem like my kind of place, but I've never been, and I'm always up for exploring someplace new. I discovered the Neon Museum's Boneyard Park, and it looks so awesome! Two acres of outdoor space with over 150 retired neon signs! Talk about typography heaven.
Unfortunately I also discovered that the actual museum is still under construction, and the only way to currently view the collection is by tour reservation.... and they are already sold out for the entire time I'm going to be in town (major bummer). So, in the meantime I am living vicariously through these photos taken by Eighthourday (the photos are way better than anything I would have taken anyway). Have you ever been to the Boneyard? Or any other "alternative" Vegas attractions?
