After so many visits, we decide it was about time to go see the infamous sign. We found out it was about a half to maybe one mile from Mandalay Bay, so we decided to trek on over. It was crowded but surprisingly a nice experience. There was a line so people were respectful and waited. That way it gives... More

It may not be much but it's just one of those things you do. You don't go to Niagara Falls and not take a pic of the falls. It's simple, quick and great for scrapbooking down the road. There may be a line but it doesn't take long for people to snap a few pics and get on with their... More

Visiting Las Vegas from North Carolina this was on our list on things to see. Rally glad that they had parking right near the sign. Also glad that they had a staff member there to help with photos if needed. We did have to wait but that was expected considering it is one of the popular tourist attractions.

There is a parking lot at this site - on the outbound side of the strip. Drive slow in this lot - spots are tight and no one can see when backing out. There was a line to get pictures but moves quickly. When we were there, there was a guy trying to expedite the line and took people's camera's... More

We got a taxi here during the day as it is quite far down the strip. (We walked back from the sign to our hotel The Bellagio as we wanted to walk the strip but be warned it is quite a walk in the heat!!). We were concerned that the best photo we would be able to take would be... More

We (a couple) decided to take a drive to the "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign in order to take a photo and enjoy the popular attraction. The sign is located a bit further from the center (in the South part of the Strip), and it is put inside a special small square, where people park nearby and run to... More

We visited on a Wednesday morning and unfortunately we got stuck in a long line. A tour bus had pulled in ahead of us and out piled a whole bunch of people. We waited in line for a while but since it was barely moving and we were on a time crunch we opted to go off to the side... More

There is guy there who will take your photo for a donation if you don't want to use a selfie stick or try and do it yourself. Well worth a few $'s.
