This icon in Vegas is an excellent spot for a memorable photo. You may have to wait a bit with all the people having the same idea as you but it's worth it! I personally like my photo I got as the sun was setting, almost a photo showing best of both worlds ;)

This is a must photo stop if you are in Vegas. There is parking space for around 12-15 cars and 2-3 buses. If the parking lot is full, just wait for few minutes, some party will come to take out their car after getting their photos clicked the sign.

Made the mistake of trying to walk to the sign mid-afternoon and failed. Tried again one morning when it was a bit cooler and much easier. You do have to cross a busy road, so be careful! A queue is formed and a person is there to take photos, very quick turn around but a MUST SEE!

This sign is pass Mandalay Bay. There is a small parking lot for you to park. If you are walking be prepared for the long trek.

This trip to Vegas was my first and the number one attraction I wanted to visit was the famous sign. It didn't disappoint. Luckily there is a newer small parking lot and it is nicely landscaped for awesome pictures. It is free parking and free to take your picture. There was a really nice man with a microphone that takes... More

To get your picture taken, you stand in line for 5 to 10 minutes. There is someone there always who volunteers to take your picture(s) with your camera or phone for tips. Call someone on your cell phone so they can get on earth Google cams and have them pick the Las Vegas sign live cam. They can see you... More

Going to the iconic Welcome to Las Vegas sign is nearly as important as visiting the casino! The location is currently under renovation building additional parking spots and making it more accessible to get that photo op. Chances are you'll have a line of people waiting to do the same thing you're there to do but be patient and you'll... More
