    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!

    Still one of the most iconic signs in the country.

    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.

    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 Robin · 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

  • Nishant S.

    Make sure to tip the picture taker!

    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 :)

    Naomi Alipio · April 6, 2011

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

    Angela Lee · March 16, 2011
  • Kevin S.

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

    Nice spot, not much but "must do" for first timers.

    Mauricio Miyabe · June 14, 2013

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

    Lauren Millard · April 21, 2013
  • Greg T.

    The parking is ALWAYS Packed here!!! Shouldn't take THAT LONG to take a picture!!!!

    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!!!

    Gerald Casanada · March 5, 2013
  • 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.

    Nicole Dawson · February 25, 2013

    You have got to come here when you go to Vegas. MUST HAVE

    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.

    Take a picture at an angle from the side and avoid the lines. There is free parking for the sign.

    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.

    Vanessa Goh · April 28
  • HL

    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.

    Parada obligatoria para el que viene a Las Vegas.
