I had a blast with the cousins. My weekend was filled with lots of entertainment, laughter, and food. We saw The Lion King one night and it was AWESOME! It did not disappoint. The production, the costume, the singing…oh my gosh soooo cooool!!!
Unfortunately visiting the Neon Museum is by appointment only. The boneyard is fenced off but we managed to snap some pics over the fence. There’s something sad about seeing these discarded old neon signs, all piled up and illuminated no longer. It gives us a glimpse of what Vegas used to be like, before obnoxious LED & LCD screens took over the strip.
There are also plenty of old signs on display in the Fremont East area.
We managed to make a quick stop at the Pawn Stars shop on our last day. It was busy inside, lots of people and the store is roped off to manage the customers. Things were totally overpriced in the shop. They even sell Pawn Stars water and beach towels, so ridiculous.
Has anyone ever been to the Peggy Sue’s 50’s Diner in Yermo?? All the times I’ve driven to Vegas I have wondered about this 50’s diner. We mainly stopped here because I wanted pictures of the dinosaurs but when we stepped inside the diner we were pleasantly surprised by its charm. The food is so-so, your typical diner food. The chocolate malt was good but the best part of this diner are all the kitschy decorations inside and the little “dino park” outside.
That last picture is seriously my favorite pic from the whole trip, lofl!! So glad my cousins like to ham it up like me.
We were graced with the most gorgeous sunset on our way back home. Desert skies are really beautiful. What a nice way to end the trip.
