I’ve travelled to Las Vegas five times and this trip was my very first time viewing the Las Vegas Neon Museum, or some like the call it “The Neon Boneyard”. After hearing about it and then looking up photos I knew it was “the thing to see” this trip.

Our trip was very much consumed with a lot of work. Paige, Little Bean + Co., and I attended the ABC kids Expo, though we did have a little bit of time for fun. On our last day we decided to check out the Neon Museum. Let me tell you, I am so glad we did! — Thanks for that suggestion Paige!

If you have limited time in Las Vegas for the tourist things, I would highly suggest this as a must see (along with Old Vegas, Fremont Street, which is very close by the Neon Museum).

View the Las Vegas Neon Museum website here for more info.

Review | Things to know before visiting the Las Vegas Neon Museum

  1. Buy your tickets online

    We looked aline and saw that there were a lot of spaces left in the time slot that we wanted to see. We decided to just purchase when we arrived. However, upon arrival it was already booked and we had to wait for the next tour time. (I believe they run every 20 minutes ish.

  2. Go pee first

    If you have been drinking, I believe most will have, make sure that you go to the bathroom before your tour starts. You can go leave to pee on the tour, but you will miss things. The tour does not stop if someone has to go pee and once you see something you don’t get to see it again, so you do not want to have any potty breaks, trust me.

  3. Use their Shade Umbrellas (or wear a hat)

    Take them seriously when they say there is not much shade on the tour and that an umbrella is recommended. It was HOT! We went in the middle of October, so FOR SURE if you are going in the summer, it might seem silly but just do it.

  4. Take Photos Along the Way 

    The tour guide might say that there is plenty of time to take photos after the tour, but there really isn’t. At the end you can only take photos in the courtyard, and in my option everything photo worthy is along the way, especially if you want to get a shot in between the rows. The best time for this is when you get to the end of the first row, see below.

  5. Be Quick 

    If you are taking a lot of photos be quick, you don’t get much time at all. The tour guide moves quickly, hang to the back of the group so you can get shots where others aren’t in the way and make sure you set up your camera for the light along the way (when shooting manual).

  6. It’s One Hour Long 

    Each tour is one hour long and it does go quick. There is a lot to learn about so be ready to absorb a lot of information and history about Las Vegas and neon signage.

  7. Night or Day

    Tours operate both in the night and during the day. Both would be amazing to see so think about which is highest on your list. My next trip to Las Vegas I already have “visit the Las Vegas Neon Museum at Night” on my list.

It really was such a highlight of our recent trip and I am so glad that we spent the money ($20 ish). One thing I learnt along the tour was that The Flamingo is actually the longest standing hotel on the strip. We stayed in the Flamingo this trip so that was pretty cool!

You will learn a lot about the history of Las Vegas, both old and new. Attention history nuts, bring a notebook and pen because you will want to jot down the information that is shared. Hope you have a great Las Vegas trip, Enjoy!

*Note: I would not recommend children to attend. I imagined my children being there after we went and was glad that I could enjoy it without them running around. I’d be there worrying about them touching things or finding bits of broken glass and not able to focus.

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠
⁠
Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
  • It’s Friday night and I’m sharing photos on my stories of how @juliechristinephotography captured my butt in these pants. Could be worse I guess 🤣🤣 PS the jeans are the curvy mom jeans from @americaneagle // @shopsevenoaks and I really do love them, except for when my butt gets hungry for them. The end.
