Day 7 – Sunday May 27, 2012
Our last day in Las Vegas.
The one thing I really wanted to do while in Las Vegas was visit the Mob Museum. It was better than I anticipated and I loved it!
Walls of memorabilia highlighting people and the mob links to prohibition.
Including the brick wall from the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre.
My mother-in-law “shooting” a Tommy Gun. A most bizarre sight!
Brad in an “electric chair”. I can’t remember who this was an exhibit for though.
The main courtroom where several interactions with the Mob occurred and is now a theater highlighting the past. It was a fantastic show!
This was an interactive touchscreen table where you could find out about all the mob interactions in the various casinos in old Las Vegas. Very interesting!
The barber chair where Albert Anastasia was murdered.
We then attempted to go to The Auto Collections but with road closures and Memorial Weekend traffic it was INSANE on The Strip and we couldn’t get anywhere near it. Instead we went to In and Out Burger for one last meal.
From there it was back to the condo & one last time swimming. We finished packing and returned the car to the rental facility. Easiest return ever! And then waited out the flight with my family.
Then nothing left but to fly home. Totally exhausted.
Not much to see on the flight home as it was dark for most of it but I did snap this picture of Lake Mead. On the bottom right is Hoover Dam.
All and all I loved the trip and the experience. I’m very happy we planned it the way we did! Oh and I got the professional photos and video yesterday so I will be posting those this week as well.
