"The Famous Welcome Sign" Welcome Sign Tip by lazyman_1

Welcome Sign, Las Vegas: 3 reviews and 7 photos


I was told that the sign used to be out in the middle of nowhere and that due to popular demand the moved it closer to the strip. As it stands now, the sign is located just south of the Mandalay Bay casino on Las Vegas Blvd. While we were there my favorite las vegas moment of the trip happened. We were posing for our picture when a van pulled up and out poured a team of storm troopers and Elvis in a red velvet jumper who appeared to be there leader. As it turns out, Elvis was the minister and the storm troopers were the male half of the wedding party. We didn't stick around to see the bridesmaids.
You gotta love Vegas!
