    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    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?
