A sign I know, but it was cool being there and seeing it. ITs smaller than you would expect. There was a line up but it moved fast, or stand off to the side, either way. Take a picture in front, and then when your leaving take one from the back. We asked other tourist to take our picture and... More

We decided to take a refreshing walk to the Las Vegas Sign to get some air and exercise. Our Deuce driver was gracious enough to let us stay on to his bus turn around and that saved us some steps as the sign is just over 3/4 of a mile from the last bus stop. There was a couple getting... More

The Las Vegas sign was one of the things I had to see when we went to Las Vegas (October 2014). You see this sign on tv and movies all the time!! I was expecting it to be huge, but it wasn't really big at all, but it was still exciting to see it. It was our first stop once... More

It's a classic photo op for visiting Vegas. There is a lot of people there at most times but everyone lines up in an organized way to wait their turn to have their photo taken in front of it. It makes it nice cause then you don't have a lot of people in your picture. You don't have to wait... More

It's a little hard to find especially on a GPS as there is no specific address but you can't miss it as there are lots of cars parked nearby and depending what time of the day you go lots of tourists lining up to take photos. The sign is actually in the middle of the main road of the Strip... More

Clearly this is a must do if you're in Vegas. If you miss this you're missing out oh history. Having seen this sign over the years on TV and movies I was high on expectation, but the sign actually was a smaller than I thought it would be. Maybe that's the only negative thing I can say about it. It... More

This sign was installed back in 1959 and quickly became one of the most recognizable symbols of American culture. Despite that, a lot of people get really surprised when they see it closely. It's surprisingly small and modest, but it makes great pictures! Ok, so some practical advice. 1. There is a tiny parking lot on the street center divider.... More

Jesus, Joseph and Mary! Always have to go out of the parking lot, up the street, hook a u-turn and go back through until I find a parking place. I have been there 4 times already at various hours. It is crowded day or night. Always lots of limos, etc. taking up all the spaces. As you will notice in... More
