Hollywood Star Lanes has neon to make even a star blush. This is one pin that could be seen for blocks. The Hollywood Star Lanes was built in 1962 and has been serving the edge of Hollywood ever since.

The Friendly Hills Bowl is looking friendlier these days. After receiving a new paint job and neon, the marquee lights up as well as ever.

Located in Anaheim is the Linbrook Bowl and its bright neon marquee. One side of the bowling pin says "40 lanes open lanes now" the other side says "Open 24 hours". The bowling pin sign spins and is a huge impressive sign.

This bowling alley was built in the heyday of the ten pin alleys, in 1958.

Check out this neon sign for the Cal Bowl. If you stare at the sign intently, you can just picture the ball blasting through the pins. Then again, if you stare too long you may just strain your eyes. Where's Waldo. 04-99
