Where The Lights Go To Die

We started our morning with healthy fried chicken for breakfast in one of the restaurants in our hotel. It was delicious!

We purchased tickets in advance for the Neon Museum,.Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic, arts and cultural enrichment. The Neon Museum campus includes the outdoor exhibition space known as the Neon Boneyard.

Each sign in the Neon Museum’s collection offers a unique story about the personalities who created it, what inspired it, where and when it was made, and the role it played in Las Vegas’ distinctive history. Beverly, our lovely 80-year-old tour guide explained personal stories and more unknown vegas anecdotes from a few decades.

In addition, the Neon Museum collection chronicles changes and trends in sign design and technology through pieces ranging from the 1930s to the present day.

They offer a night tour as well but it was sold out, maybe next time we do it!

After a few more photos in front of the famous signs, we headed back to the strip to get ready for the show tonight!

On the way to the strip, we drove on the street where all the wedding chapels are located.  We stop in the one with Elvis to ask for details!

For $250 you could get a nice 15-minute ceremony and 15 photos for your memories!

There was a real wedding going on!

The girl was 8 months pregnant. So romantic!!!

We walked to the Venetian Hotel, probably the most beautiful hotel in Vegas.

Every store and restaurant is super classy and well decorated. This was the Tao restaurant which has an Asian-Zen theme.

This store sells handmade liquors. Every single one that you could imagine! After some free tastings, we were on our way to find a happy hour before the show.

Finding happy hours in Vegas is not hard, especially when you have Sarah traveling with you.

With the addition of The Palazzo to The Venetian, the combined properties have more than 7,000 suites, making this “under one roof” space the largest hotel in the world. It cost 2.7 billion dollars to built!! and you still think you can win money at the casino 😉

The Venice hotel has canals where you can rent a gondola and take a ride. It cost even more than if you do it in real Venice.

We headed to the Mirage,there wasn’t too much to see at this hotel.

There are several shows in Vegas but Cirque du Soleil Love was recommended to us by pretty much everyone. We bought the tickets pretty far  in advance so it was not that expensive and our seats were superb.

Love combines the re-produced and re-imagined music of the Beatles with an interpretive, circus-based artistic and athletic stage performance.

The show was absolutely incredible. We recommend everyone to go see it!

After the show, we walked a little more around the shops. There was this amazing one that sells memorabilia of every event, band or personality you could imagine. They had a Nasa poster signed by the 12 people that have stepped on the moon!!!! Eitan was salivating but for $14000, he knew it was an impossible purchase.

We had dinner then walked back to the hotel as we have an early start tomorrow!!
