Loving Las Vegas – a Neon Jungle #Photowalk

By February 1, 2019 No Comments

Photowalk Las Vegas

We’ve been big fans of Las Vegas for years–decades in fact.

(Just look up “Vegas: Live and In Person,” and my name and you’ll see!)

So it was natural that when visiting in January, we would bring the #Photowalk experience to the Neon Jungle, for a two-pronged attack. First, a look at just where to go to capture the best shots of the lost art of neon in the city, and two, how to find the best locations (save for an expensive helicopter tour) of nabbing great skyline shots of the city.

Let’s start with neon. The only remaining classic, old-style neon left on the Las Vegas Strip is at the Fabulous Flamingo, the hotel started in 1946 by mobster Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. It’s pictured above.

To experience the neon of olden days, take a visit to downtown and Fremont Street, where the Four Queens, Binion’s and the Fremont Hotel still shine brightly, all night long.

Also downtown is the Neon Museum, where old neon signs go to live another life, in the Boneyard of the hotel.

The Neon Museum in Las Vegas houses old signs after they get torn down and keeps them alive. Here are the signs for the Riviera and Stardust hotels.
