Las Vegas 2012 ~ Day 3

November 16, 2012 ~ Today we decided to go to the Neon Boneyard on Las Vegas Blvd. I heard about this place on one of the Storage Auction shows and didn't know a place like this existed. I loved the thought of seeing some of the old vintage things from casinos that are long gone or have been updated.
So I'm not going to show you all of the pictures but if you are ever in Las Vegas you should spend the $15.00 to get a walking tour and learn some interesting history of this place. Really is impressive and would be awesome to do a photo shoot here! 
So we decided to walk to Freemont Street to check it out. During the day it's pretty calm around there. There were people but certainly not as many as the evenings. 
Apparently there was a fitness show in town...
Boys calm down... there is a lady in this picture. See her on the right?
All the other girls still had robes on so this is all I got!
We walked around down here and then headed back up to our hotel. We had to get ready to go see Garth Brooks tonight at 10:30 pm! 
But before we headed to the show.... We went back to the hotel and as we were walking out we heard all kinds of screaming... "Oh my God! No Way!"
The screams were coming from this young lady! It appears that Sharon won $111,000+ dollars on a dollar progressive machine! She was so sweet and found out that she had owned an electrical contracting company for 25 years! Pretty cool!
We went to see another Cirque du Soleil show, Zumanity. This show was the "Sensual side of Cirque du Soleil". It was funny during the intro but not my favorite one. 
Finally it was time to go see a good show! We were super excited to see the Garth Brooks show as this was his final weekend in Las Vegas. The show was perfect! Just him and his guitar. He took us on a journey through his life growing up and told us about his inspirations along the way. He said out of 6 kids he was the last and his daddy had a fine line of music... Haggard and Jones. He really was great to listen to and laugh with and at the end he brought his wife, Tricia Yearwood out to sing. I really like these kind of shows because you get to see a little into their life. He played for a lot longer since he didn't have a show after this one.
