Tripping the Light Fantastic

By Linda Tancs

Neil Young sang that it’s better to burn out than to fade away.  When iconic neon signs in Las Vegas burn out, they don’t just fade away.  They find a home at the Neon Boneyard.  Home to more than 150 historic signs that once graced the likes of Caesars Palace, Binion’s Horseshoe, the Golden Nugget and the Stardust, each sign is accompanied by a history lesson about its design and development.  The outdoor museum is accessible only through daily one-hour guided tours, weather permitting.  Park for free at McWilliams Avenue.
