Sights from the Road: 5 Great Vintage Neon Signs

One common theme that seems to run through my photographic interest is vintage signage. Most often neon signs, though I’m not that picky if it’s really eye-catching. Much to the chagrin of my riding partner(s) I will throw on the anchors or double back to snap a picture if something interesting crosses my path.

5 Great Signs Spotted on the Road

  • Alexandria Bay, New York – The Spot Café
    Nestled along the shoreline of the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence Seaway, Alexandria Bay, NY offers the typical fare of touristy motels, souvenir shops and restaurants. Boldt Castle is not to be missed.
  • Skowhegan Maine – Skowhegan Diner
    Though I did not stop in to the diner to eat, I did walk across the footbridge bridge behind it to check out the Kennebec River.
  • Willets California – The Lark Motel
    On Route 101, the Lark Motel sign is a real looker. Great shape, color and composition. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.
  • Redding California – Stardust Motel
    3 for the price of 1 jackpot! The Stardust has 2 great signs on their property and the Americana Lodge sign can be seen peeking out as well. Redding offers the opportunity to see the Sundial Bridge and puts you on the path to great riding roads.
  • Aquebogue, New York – Modern Snack Bar
    Go for the sign, stay for the pie. This was where I had my first piece of Strawberry Rhubarb. Now I am completely hooked.
