Clark County, Nev., began accepting marriage applications from same-sex couples in early October, making Nevada one of the 32 states in the United States to legalize same-sex weddings.


Known for welcoming all kinds of couples for wacky and wonderful weddings, Las Vegas venues and chapels are joining in to welcome and arrange same-sex marriage celebrations. The Neon Museum is one of the Wedding Capital of the World’s iconic locations.


The museum offers three open-air locations surrounded by historic examples of Las Vegas’ most famous art form — the neon sign. Since opening in 2012, the Neon Museum Boneyard, with more than 150 historic signs, has become one of the city’s most photographed sites. In spring 2014, the 3,100-square-foot North Gallery opened, with 60 additional signs.


Additional event space includes the 2,500-square-foot Neon Boneyard Park and the 600-square-foot La Concha Visitors Center, accommodating wedding receptions for up to 300 people. The Neon Museum offers a compilation of preferred vendors to help make wedding planning a breeze. Prices start at $450.


The Neon Museum is dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historical and cultural enrichment. Public education, outreach, research, archival presentation and a grant-funded neon sign survey represent some of the museum’s ongoing projects.

European Beaches Still Warm Enough for a Fall Vacation

The end of summer doesn’t have to mean the end of beach season. Although the temperatures start to dip, there is still plenty of European coastline ripe for swimming and sunbathing well into September. Take advantage of cheaper, off-season airfare and jet to one of these European beaches before fall weather makes its way south.

Culinary Artistry

Dining is an art, and now that applies to both on the ground and at 35,000 feet thanks to Hainan Airlines’ “Hai Chef” Inflight Artistic Chinese cuisine series, a collaboration with Dong Zhenxiang, a Chinese culinary master also known as Dadong.
