I may travel to Las Vegas in early November and I'm not really into the casino scene. Does anyone have any suggestions for photo opportunities? I've found some information on Red Rock Canyon that is only 30 minutes west of the city.

Any suggestions???

There's supposed to be a museum for all the old signs of previous casinos that were taken down, it's supposed to be in the desert somewhere http://www.neonmuseum...­ There's also the Goldwell museum in Rhyolite http://goldwellmuseum...­

Hoover Dam and Lake Meade area is nice.

Thank you, Wendy & Mike
The Neon Museum website sounds kinda interesting. They have evening hours and some of the signs are working. And while looking for Mike's suggestion (re: Lake Mead) on the map I found the Valley of Fire State Park. This too looks very promising.
I only have 2 or 3 days while my wife supports the SEMA Show, so I should have some great places to explore. Unless of course, I'm recruited to carry her bags. :-)

Thank you for your suggestions.

You need to go to the Valley of Fire. I spent about 8 hours there last winter and it's an amazing place with photo ops everywhere you turn. It was only an hour or so away too. Morning sunrise is amazing time.
Here is alink to some images I took there http://memoriesbymike...­

If you do get 'stuck' in vegas, I would head to old vegas and get lots of people shots. Its much different than the strip and much more festive. Lots of neat things to shoot on the strip as well, like the lobby of the bellagio, the fountains at the bellagio, the volcano at the mirage, etc.

Thanks, Mike
Your images on your website are very nice. I definitely plan on visiting Valley of Fire.

Thanks Paul,
My first (and only) visit to LV, I shot the Beliagio fountains but would love to do it again. I didn't think of "off the strip" or old LV. Maybe I'll visit Counts Customs or the Pawn Guys while I am there.

While you're shooting the fountains go to the check-in at the Bellagio and look up - the ceiling is all hand-blown glass flowers. Looks pretty awesome.
