"Welcome to Las Vegas Sign" Top 5 Page for this destination Nevada Things to Do Tip by Yaqui

Nevada Things to Do: 129 reviews and 280 photos

This historical landmark use to greet all those entering Vegas from the south traveling on the strip. Now, it attracts those who seek out the photo opportunity of capturing a unique icon. The sign was the brain child of Betty Willis and Ted Rogich and erected in 1959.

Traffic is still very busy, so please be careful. They have thankfully added a parking area. Not a lot of spaces, but at least the area is fenced off and gives visitors a much safer area to enjoy the historical piece of history. Hey, you might even have a Elvis sighting;).

Directions: South end of the Las Vegas Blvd strip

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
