Do you ever wonder what happens to all those flashy neon signs in Las Vegas when the casinos they belong to go under? Hopefully, end up at the Neon Boneyard, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of these historical pieces. You can actually schedule a guided tour (two weeks in advance if you can) where you learn about vintage signage and the era from which they were forged. What makes this place even more rad is that they are hoping to restore the signs and offer tours at night to view them in their original glory!
