It is a little bit stupid, there is no more than the sign. It does not deserve more than the 15' walking from Mandalay Bay Hotel if you want the photo, but the photo looks like well in your home to confirm at least you have been there not only burning dollars ...... Let us be realistic.

It can get quite busy around the sign so we decided to visit it when we were leaving vegas about 7.30am in the morning. No queue, so we managed to get some great photographs of ourselves in front of the sign.

There is a bus-stop for the RTC SDX Express bus now. If you have a bus pass, go for it and take a photo to remember your visit to Las Vegas. This was my first time to actually stop at the sign. I have driven past it hundreds of times. Bring your camera.

This was one of the things that I DEFINITELY wanted to check out & see on my maiden trip to Vegas. This was part of the tour package I booked. It was our first stop en route to Hoover Dam & the Grand Canyon. We were there early (around 7am). It's right next to Mc Carran Airport. According to our... More

An essential part of the Vegas experience, this is simply a sign positioned on the highway beyond the Mandalay Bay. Lines form, but I'm not sure you'd really want to wait 15 minutes just for a photo. We ignored the line and did a selfie from an angle! Take the bus if you're on the Strip - it can be... More

We stopped to do pictures here. There is always a line, but it goes fairly quick. We decided to just do selfies off to the side.

I always thought this was bigger, and taller! There is usually a line to get a picture right in front of it, but our taxi guy was lovely, even got out with us while he waited and showed us where to stand (off to the right) where you still have the sign right behind you...there is limited parking but you...

Little you can say and difficult to rate. It's an iconic sign and it's busy with long queues but it's Vegas.

Great place to stop and take your picture with the sign as you enter Las Vegas. You never know who you will meet there, it is always a surprise..

Very excited to see parking for those who want to stop and see the sign - smart planning to have a parking lot right in the middle of the road so people can stop and park safely. Only issue was the line was so long, but we went to the side and got a good picture with our group.
