If you're on a quest to discover aliens, atomic test sites, ghost towns, haunted hotels, and KISS-themed mini golf, there's probably no better way to find it all and more than by taking a road trip through the State of Nevada. Here's a list of some of the strangest and most fascinating curiosities you'll find throughout the Silver State.


Neon Museum

El Neon Museum (o "Museo de Neón" en español) se encuentra en el centro de Las Vegas y si bien está abierto todo el día, se disfruta mejor de noche. Vengan a ver el cartel del Caesar's Palace a todo color y esplendor, y échenle un vistazo al caballo y al jinete del antiguo Hacienda Hotel. Con frecuencia, el museo añade nuevos elementos a esta maravillosa colección. No es posible optar por una entrada sin recorrido guiado y si prefieren visitar el museo en los últimos horarios, se recomienda conseguir las entradas con anticipación ya que son las primeras en agotarse.

Pinball Hall of Fame

Escondido en un almacén sin pretensiones se encuentra lo que podría ser la mayor colección de máquinas de pinball del mundo desde la década de 1950 hasta la de 1990. Este salón de la fama de Pinball está catalogado como un museo, pero es técnicamente una sala de juegos. Todas las máquinas están en funcionamiento y los clientes pueden jugar a sus anchas. No hay que pagar para entrar en el lugar, pero los jugadores tendrán que usar monedas en las máquinas de juego. Situado a poca distancia de la avenida principal, el Pinball Hall of Fame es un lugar ideal para aquellos que buscan algo único y fuera de lo común. Cualquiera puede ir a Las Vegas y decir que jugaron al tragamonedas. Pero, ¿cuántos pueden decir que visitaron la que posiblemente sea la mayor colección del mundo de máquinas de pinball?

Clown Motel

Just off Highway 95 is the tiny desert town of Tonopah. What was formerly a booming goldmining area is now considered to be the “middle of nowhere,” where travelers often stop by to refuel. Tonopah is also known for one other thing – the Clown Motel. Every room is clown themed and the moment you step into the lobby you will see hundreds of clowns, with portraits of famous clowns adorning the walls. What makes the motel creepy is that it is located right next to a cemetery lot. If you’re feeling brave enough to check out a room, be sure to make a reservation in advance – the spots fill up quickly!
