World Famous Gold and Silver Pawn Shop in Downtown Las Vegas, Nevada
This is no ordinary pawnshop: It’s the home of the History Channel’s reality-television show Pawn Stars. That means that any ordinary visit can turn into an opportunity to be on camera—or at least an opportunity to see Chumley, Rick Harrison, and some of the other regular characters who have become pseudo-celebrities over the years. The place has become so popular that lines to gain entrance usually wind around the block. Once you do get inside, you’ll notice the full complement of antiques and mementos for sale, as well as a large gift shop with Pawn Stars–branded merchandise. While the store itself welcomes customers from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Pawn Window is open 24 hours a day. For the full experience, check out Harrison’s shopping center next door, grab a drink at his eponymous bar, and spend a few hours in his nightclub.
