Downtown Las Vegas Attractions – Neonopolis

Guest Author - Debra Conrad

If you love the lights of Las Vegas, this is must see entertainment. Neonopolis is just across from the entrance to the Fremont Street Experience is this brightly lit entertainment complex right in the heart of downtown Las Vegas. If you have been to San Diego's Horton Plaza, you will be familiar with this type of outdoor mall experience.
Neonopolis"

What surprises most visitors, is that this museum of neon is not all original to Las Vegas. The antique signage displayed throughout represents motels, supper clubs and other kitschy contributions from across the U. S. The Strand Theatre sign is from Shreveport, La., built in 1925. The Hunick's Lounge sign hales from Texas. Hunt's Red Car motel sign, complete with bullet hole, is a Compton, Calif. delivery. Most of the antique signs are displayed in the mall courtyard, mounted on the elevator tower that serves as the retail-entertainment complex centerpiece.

The sign display will be expanding on an ongoing basis. Signs have also been collected from the 50's and 60's era. You will see a walking chef carrying a steak and potato dinner, bowling ball and pin, a blond Marilyn in a bathing suit. Some of the older signs came from local Las Vegas casinos, and you can see many of the vintage signs still on the casinos of Fremont Street.

All the signs are original, not replications. The only new neon is used to light the stripes and squiggles that are featured in common areas.




The mall boasts several restaurants including La Salsa Cantina, Video Café and The Saloon The food court Chinese, pizza, hamburgers and ice cream. Jillian's has a video and other games arcade, bowling on the second floor, pool tables and private party rooms.

The Crown 14 Theatres is located on the 3rd floor, with the ticket booth outside the front entrance on the ground floor. Midnight movies are shown on Friday and Saturday nights. This theatre has some of the largest theaters in town. Five of the fourteen auditoriums are huge. And it is said that Crown 14 offers the best movie prices in Las Vegas.

There is something to entertain every age group at Neonopolis. People gather around the elevator tower turned sign gallery to take pictures, reminisce and smile in amusement.
