Photo Standing Under the Las Vegas Sign

Take a Photo Standing Under the Las Vegas Sign
The “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign is as representative of Sin City as the Bellagio fountain waterworks or a leggy burlesque show. It’s about a twenty minute walk from Mandalay Bay, but tourists, myself included, stand in line a dozen people deep for the opportunity to have their souvenir photo taken underneath this 25 foot sign. Proof that not everything that happens in Vegas stays there.

On the day of my visit, Elvis made a surprise appearance, sang some jailhouse rock and also was the perfect photographic prop.

Is getting a photo standing under the Las Vegas sign on your bucket list?


The Welcome to Las Vegas sign does have a small parking lot that fits about 12 cars available. It is possible to walk, from Mandalay Bay, but be warned that it is about a mile. Even though there is often a line, it moves fairly quickly. When we were there we only waited ten minutes for our turn.

    there’s always such a long line there! it was never really on my list.. but we did do it! i guess bc now we live in vegas.. it just doesn’t seem as glamorous as people make it out to be. guess it’s the grass is greener on the other side syndrome. 🙂

    Even though I lived in Vegas for 8 months, I never did do this cheesy but utterly necessary photo opp!

      I am guilty of taking for granted what it’s my own backyard too!
