The sign outside for the Amazon Motel stands tall off the Miracle Mile. The sign itself is on the edge of the Miracle Mile and the sign has been neon lit over the years. The motel appears to have opened in the 50s or 60s.

The sign itself has changed slightly over the past few decades. I've had more than my share of encounters taking photos here, especially at night. 06-23

How about this neon shot of a swimmer hitting the water. Swimmer neon marquees in the desert used to appeal to the hot and weary traveler looking for a mirage or oasis to cool off for the evening.



The Starlite Motel and its marquee features animated neon that is becoming rare these days. Check out the sequence of the neon diver making a splash at this Mesa, AZ delight. 01-08


UPDATE 10/10 : The Starlite Motel lost its animated neon diver sign in a thunderstorm on October 5. According to the Arizona Republic, the 50 year old sign was destroyed when a powerful wind gust sheared off a metal pole support. The motel owner states the sign most likely will not be replaced due to funds required and Mesa's sign ordinance. Another roadside treasure has become just a memory.
