Vintage Typography Preserved for Posterity

The Neon Museum, Las Vegas

During the planning of our annual double birthday celebration, my husband and I booked a hiking and road trip adventure through the mountains of Sedona, the Grand Canyon and a gorgeous Aman resort in Utah, Amangiri. But the small airport in Utah would not accept our one-way car rental and Paul opted for returning the car to Vegas. Knowing it’s the last place I wanted to end our trip, he planned an all-day excursion to The Mob Museum and The Neon Museum for me. Between uncovering the history of every Made Man and exploring typographic relics in the neon boneyard, I was in Old Vegas heaven!
