    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.

    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.

    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

    Watch out for a scary man at night who tries to harass you and take your pictures. Calls girls "baby" and won't leave you alone. Go in a big group if late at night.

    It's quite sad that authorities haven't built a crosswalk to the center of the street. You have to cross three lanes in front of cars in order to get to the sign.

    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!

    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.
