The iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign represents a popular photo-op for tourists visiting Sin City. Designed by Betty Willis, the sign was erected at the south end of the world-renowned strip in 1959 to encourage tourists to visit. It seems the 7.6 m (25 ft) tall sign has been a success--today it attracts several hundred visitors a day eager to get their photo with the landmark. Best accessed by car, the sign stands at the side of the highway and features a small parking lot for visitors. You'll find an attendant on-site to corral the line of visitors who will take your picture for a small tip.

Beautiful photo spot. I even saw some singing Elvis impersonators with whom you can take a picture. Be aware of a line of people waiting unless you come during a very early time of the morning. There was also a guy helping with pictures and he advised good poses for the shot. We came around 3pm and it was extremely hot and the wait in the line was about 20-30 minutes. But the heat made it feel like an hour, so bring water, a hat, and wear sunscreen.
Amazing experience. Lovely guy called dean there taking photos for everyone on their phones and making sure people get good photos. He took about 10 or so for us. Long queue for it but worth it. He also tells others on the side if they are stepping in to the middle too much, (those who have not queued). Well worth the $8 dollar bus ride there (for 24 hours bus pass).
