  • Museum of Neon Art "Neon Noir Cruise"

    Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles

    Climb aboard a double-decker bus and travel back in time to Los Angeles in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Los Angeles was used as a backdrop for filming some of the greatest noir films of all time.

Join me for a spectacular evening tour of Neon L.A. with tour guide extraordinaire Eric Evavold of the Museum of Neon Art. His tours are not to be missed!
