    This sign, designed by neon artist Betty Willis and erected in 1959, has become a world-famous symbol of Las Vegas. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.

    The famous Vegas sign is definitely a place that you should to take a picture when you are in Vegas, have nothing else there but the picture is one of the best when you are in Vegas!!

    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!

    Great photo op! Don't listen to random people there... Anyone is allowed to take pics. Free parking is hard to come by but available!

    Must place to go. Better go in the morning or afternoon. The queue is not to long. There's a guy to help you taking picture but you must give tips to him.

    "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" Bring Your nice Camera. You don't wanna regret not taking those wonderful views around the city.

    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.

    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 a better selfie, without dealing with the crowd, stand to the right of the sign (blocking out the tourists) and have the sign over your left shoulder

    It's a quick walk from Mandalay bay. There is a crosswalk with a light to get there. Don't bother with a cab unless it is super hot out.

    It's just a bright welcoming sign. It symbolizes the entrance to the city. The area around it has been shaped to host cars so that people can stop by and take photos.

    A must-do in Las Vegas but there's a fairly sizable line so make sure you plan your time accordingly.

    If you visited Las Vegas but you forgot to take a picture in front of this sign you need to repeat the visit.

    Busy crowd. There were 2 obnoxious "photographers" taking supposedly free pictures for people and they pretty much ignored anyone who brought their own camera. We went at night. Big crowd.

    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.

    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.

    Always a crowd, but sometimes you can get people to line up so we can all take a nice picture one at a time....

    If you are in Vegas, you have to visit the sign. God access to pull in car park going South towards Airport. You cannot stop going North.
  • Christine B.
    There's always a crazy line for photos. Don't waste your time in line and stand off to the side if you don't mind people in the background.
  • Ryan D.
    You don't have to give your camera to the person inevitably there to "take the picture for you."

    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.

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

    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?

    Been here before, I think it was exit 5 L.A. coming off Rt. 66. ( right into Hover Dam, they was building a over head bridge late 09 ) I was going to San Diego, Spring Valley.

    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

    The inspiration for many terrible souvenirs. For a good one, get a picture taken in front of it. Priceless.

    Safest bet is to walk from Mandalay Bay.

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