    In 1993, plans to beautify the Strip included removing the sign from its place south of Mandalay Bay (0.8 miles). Those who opposed the idea won, and the sign is still in its original place.

    Get your photo taken here or at the other sign on the north strip.

    A must, for anyone visiting Vegas or the first time. Originally erected in 1959 it is now on the national registry of historic places.

    Krypton is used as a filling gas in halogen bulbs, energy-saving bulbs and gas discharge tubes in illuminated billboards. Krypton increases bulb life and produces more effective lighting.

    Lock your car doors! A lot of tourists return to their cars to find their valuables gone!

    The sign was designed by Betty Willis while she worked for Western Neon Company and cost $4,000 to build and install. Did you take a photo with it?

    Listen to Brandon Flowers' album "Flamingo," a tribute to his hometown of Las Vegas. This is essentially the title of the opening track.

    Either walk there or take a cab. No public transportation to/from the sign. 20-25 min walk from Luxor. Difficult to get a cab back to the city. Quite crowded during evening hours.

    Big Bird is always in the front of the sign every morning if u want to take a pic w/ em

    Christopher R. · March 4, 2012

    Go in the morning, so there aren't a ton of people there. We took a picture with elvis. Totally worth the tip money

  • Ashley d.

    I say its better to take pix during the day cuz at night either u use a flash and the sign is dark or no flash and u can only see the sign. Lines go quick anyways

    Go at night if you dont like long lines and dont pay anybody to take your picture... Its free! And yes, drunken jumping pictures are fun :)

    It's a 5minute walk from Mandalay Bay Casino and Hotel, southern tip of the Strip. :)

    There are no "picture takers" or official employees here. Take your own photos for free. Read the signage!

    Surprisingly it's kind of far from the strip, so take a drive and see it.

    A historical sign. You know your in the heart of Vegas when you see this sign. It is a sigh of relief because you made it!!!

  • Nicole D.

    Although it looks close to Mandalay Bay, it isn't really! Take a cab and get it to wait for you while you take your pics. When I went, there was a girl that would take pics of you with your camera.

    Please DON'T get fooled into thinking the man asking you if you want him to take a picture of you is doing it out of kindness... He is a THUG scamming for TIPS from vulnerable tourists

    When you need that classic photo or a nice timelapse of the sun setting over the strip.

    Hire a limo to take you to this Las Vegas icon and then drive along the strip after you've taken pictures.

    Moe Greene invented Las Vegas. This was a great man, a man of vision and guts. And it's outrageous that there isn't even a plaque, or a signpost or a statue of him in this town!

    For just a tip you get 10-20 professional pictures taken and emailed to you in less than 3 minutes. Ask for Mark Thursdays thru Sundays after dark. You get GREAT pictures and have a BLAST taking them!
