What happens in Vegas Part 2

So after a lovely morning of sightseeing Hoover Dam, we have lunch, rest a little and decide to hit up more Las Vegas sightseeing. 
We are leaving in the morning so anything we want to see or do... Now is the time! 
We were married here almost 15 years ago so my sweet husband
wanted to pay a visit to the wedding chapel.

When we married it was called the Chapel of Love.

It has since changed names and not been kept up as well, but he found it!
There were 4 different chapel rooms, but he remembered it from the Rose stained glass.

We were able to go inside and take a picture too!

It's on the lower end of the strip and near the Gold and Silver pawn Shop 
from the History Channel's Pawn Stars.
So, of course we had to pay them a visit, too!

There was a line to get in and they had just filmed a segment for the next season.
The parking lot attendant said that chumlee was inside but we didn't see him.

The store is very it didn't take long to look around.
We did see some of the items they have shown on the tv show. 
Lots of historical guns, football Super Bowl rings, art, jewelry, etc... 
It was worth a stop.
No picture taking allowed inside the store and with the heavy security... I didn't want to chance it. 
Next we decide to look for Rick's Restorations.

His shop has a show on the history channel too.

It was just around the corner. His place is much larger.

We also drove by the Counts Kustom cars too.
 It's just a little storefront in a strip center warehouse area. Nothing really to see outside his shop.
He has a restaurant called Vamps.
We saw it too but I think it was closed during the day when we drove by.
Against our better judgement we decided to stop and walk around Fremont Street.
The Toy Shack from the pawn stars show was located there.

It's a great store for vintage toys.

The owner was there and we recognized him from the tv show.

We walked around some and saw the Heart Attack Grill.

It was on the travel channel and we hoped to have dinner there,
but Steve decided it was too racy to take Spencer.

So we saw some of the crazy sights on Fremont Street and left.

I'm having a hard time remembering where we ate that evening.
I remember now...
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co.
After we ended up back on the strip to visit New York New York 
and ride the roller coaster! So fun!
We can say we thoroughly got as much sightseeing in as possible and now it's time for rest and preparing for our drive tomorrow to Flagstaff! 
Yes we are going to the Grand Canyon and I've booked a very special excursion for our birthdays! Yippee! Bye Bye Vegas!
