Golden Nugget Shark Tank Tours

The Golden Nugget, in downtown Las Vegas, is offering tours of The Shark Tank (its 200,000 gallon shark filled aquarium in the middle of the pool complex). You can go behind the scenes and above the Tank with their resident marine biologist and learn a bit about the sharks and the aquarium.  Your guide will cover a lot about the sharks, the feeding process, the divers’ safety gear and the other fish in the aquarium. You will also have a chance to ask questions.  Every tour participant gets a souvenir shark tooth, too.

Tickets are $30. Tours are at 3:30pm Thursday – Saturday.
To make your Shark Tank Tour reservation or for more info, visit the Golden Nugget’s Shark Tank Tour page.

The Neon Museum: A Must-See

(updated June 2018)
On New Year’s Eve we took a tour of the Neon Museum.  I cannot recommend this tour strongly enough. It would have been enough just to walk through the signs, but our guide was a great storyteller and had a really good knowledge of Las Vegas history and the history of the signs. I think she loved Las Vegas history as much as I do.  At each of the stops along the tour our guide shared the history of particular signs as well as information about what else was going on in Las Vegas at the time.

Here are some photos from our tour. The photos are no replacement for actually visiting the museum and taking the tour, but they should give you a good idea of what to expect. Continue reading The Neon Museum: A Must-See

Pawn Stars Tour

Just a few days after my post about how to get to Gold & Silver Pawn via the bus, OnBoard Sightseeing Tours announced the Pawn Stars Tour.
It is a 4 hour tour with stops at Gold & Silver Pawn, The Toy Shack, Rick’s Restorations and Count’s Kustoms.  It is very expensive ($69.99 for adults, $59.99 for kids).
Hopefully the price will come down to something a bit more reasonable soon.
