El letrero de Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas (Español: Bienvenido A la Fabulosa Las Vegas) es un icono del Strip de Las Vegas creado en 1959 por Betty Willis y Ted Rogich para el condado de Clark, Nevada. Willis recibió $4,000 por su trabajo. El diseño es característico del movimiento de la arquitectura googie en la cual era muy popular en esa época. El letrero fue construido por Western Neon. Sobre el paso de los años, el letrero se ha movido más al sur en Las Vegas Boulevard debido al crecimiento de la ciudad. En la parte de atrás del letrero se puede leer las palabras de "Conduzca con cuidado" y "Regrese Pronto". Cuando se ve de cerca, los círculos con las letras de "WELCOME" se pueden observar las monedas de dólar estadounidense.
El letrero está actualmente localizado en Las Vegas Boulevard a través del (ahora cerrada) Klondike Hotel & Casino. Algunos consideran al letrero como el "final del extremo sur del Strip de Las Vegas". El letrero, como la mayoría del strip, se encuentra en la localidad de Paradise y se encuentra aproximadamente cuatro millas al sur de los límites de la ciudad de Las Vegas. (Estas distinciones son usualmente ignoradas tanto por la población local y turística, quienes confunden a toda el área de casinos y el strip como la ciudad de "Las Vegas".)

Amazing experience!!! So much to do and look at. So many casinos and shows. But lots of traffic!!! So definitely rent a car if your able to. Also there is lots of beggars so be aware of your surroundings. And people selling stuff, so don't fall prey to scam artists... But all in all had a fabulous time.

As many times I have been to Las Vegas this was my first time at this sign. There was a line to take a picture directly in front, under the sign. People waited patiently to take family, group and individual pictures. You can also take a picture to the side like I did. I didn't wavy to wait in line You will get other people in your picture. But oh well. It was fun just driving there and watching people take pictures. A definite thing to do when in Las Vegas. Oh ya don't forget to go on the other side of sign, Come Back Soon. No line on that side.

Very cool to see this iconic sign in person! And I loved that it is well kept and in good order. We missed the professional photographer and the show girls we saw there a few times but were happy with the solo pics. so drive past a few times and stop in as desired :)

Difinently a must photo stop on your first trip to Las Vegas. Located in the middle of the road on Las Vegas Blvd. and only a block away from the Mandalay Bay Hotel. If you walk it from the Mandalay Bay Hotel main entrance it's about a 10 min walk. The best time of the day would be late morning or early afternoon when the sun is high for best lighting and for the less crowd. Make sure to go across the street at the cross walk near by and check out the super huge Harley Davidson store. There's a Vegas Harley sign on their lot which is great for photos and of course if your a Harley fan u most go inside.

I really enjoyed Vegas. There is a ton to do here; plenty of gambling, no shortage of delicious restaurants and many sights to see. The Vegas Strip is mostly full of adult oriented activities. All in all, it is an amazing city full of things to do. Please note that if you plan to drive around here - the traffic is awful! Avoid driving straight through the strip if possible. I made that mistake of doing that. If you decide to venture away from the strip, there is not a whole lot to do. The Strip is where anything and everything is at. Great place! I look forward to coming back.

There is a very friendly homeless man who specializes in taking photographs for tourists. His technique is very good and he will guide people how to pose. Although he is homeless, he does not steal or grab, he earned tips on his own effort. Worth encouraging, please give him a chance to survive!

While it is cool to see the iconic sign in person, it is nothing more than a sign and a single picture. Most likely not worth the hour long wait to take a picture, buti can understand the draw... this sign is very famous. It has it's own parking lot, it is easy to access, and if you are interested in seeing the sign and taking a picture, there is no real reason not to.

This is a nice little place to take a family picture for your Vegas Vacation. The city has organized it really well by having a nice little parking spot next to the sign and quite a bit of open ground to queue up and not disturb the passing traffic. Overall a good place and recommended if you have 15 mins to spare.

I have been here several times and every time is different! But an amazing different! I love coming here and just having fun. Lots of things to do, you will NEVER be bored.

If you thought Las Vegas was all about gambling then think again there is so much more to this place than the face seen by most tourists. Take a stroll down Fremont and the adjoining streets which are perfectly safe to walk around and take in the history from the Neon and Mob museum to the Trailer park with its great shops and restaurants. See the original Last Vegas and not just the strip with all the modern hotels. Take a look at the Atomic museum as this was an atomic test site just over the mountain range, then pop into the Pinball or Burlesque museum which are often overlooked. For all you that love vintage check out the Arts District just a 10 minute walk from the Stratosphere with a wealth of clothes and furniture shops all screaming out beyond retro.

The iconic sign on the south end of the Strip. There is a dedicated parking for your use. Set aside a chunk of time for this as lines can be extensive for your photo in front of it. Be courteous and don't spend forever mugging for cameras. Nobody wants to waste an extended amount of time waiting.

I enjoyed this place a lot more than I thought I would, not being a total car enthusiast. There's a great little car themed play area for little kids to enjoy which I thought was especially cool. I also really liked learning the history of land speed records. A lot of the cars on display are on loan from local car collectors. Even though I'm not a big car lover, I would go again knowing that they rotate out a section of their showroom. The time I went, Corvettes were featured but was going to be changed out soon.

Easy to park at and then walk to the sign. I don't waste an hour waiting in line to take my picture in front of it as that hour is better spent doing other things. You can easily be off to the side and have a good picture taken of you and the sign without wait. There is a good view of the south strip from this location.

So glad I was able to bring my kids to see the beautiful memorial that was set up for the victims of the Route 91 shooting before it was relocated to the Clark County Museum. It was a surprisingly reverent place amidst the chaos of the Strip to visit and pay respect. Vegas Strong 🖤

Def. a tourist attraction. I recommend getting in line for a good picture. I did visit in November though when its not hot as heck so I guess that is a factor to consider. There was a guy there who took a few great pictures of us when we visited. He was kind and didn't make you feel obligated to give him a tip but we definitely did. We walked there and took an Uber to our next location. They have a parking lot available for those who have a vehicle.

Everyone who visits Vegas needs a cliche picture in front of the sign. Certainly the best symbol of the city (despite not being in the city limits). And the parking remodel definitely makes it easier than the quick stop-and-go method you had to use in the past. And don't wait in line, just be more creative in your angles and timing!
Nicole Herrick | jun. 3, 2018
this is definitely more of a tourist attraction than it is a welcome sign. the parking lot is in the middle of the road (like an island) which is convenient, so no street crossing needed. you can only enter from one side of the road coming out of the strip; the sign would be on your left. get there early so you don't have to wait in a long line for a pic! if you can't get there early, try taking a picture in front of the sign from the side - then you don't have to stand in line in the heat for half an hour and be sweaty in the picture :)

One of the most popular sign in the country and part of a national museum piece. If you do visit during the summer with pets and children please be super cautious as the area gets very hot. The line does move fairly quick at ~60 seconds per group of 4 people. Often time there are between 20-150 people waiting. Pro tip: you can take pics from the side and still get very good picture. There's usually no line and the pics are way more dramatic at an angle.

You will see the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign when driving along Las Vegas Blvd. It is located a few minutes south of the main Strip of hotels and casinos. When driving south, there is a small carpark just past the sign where you can pull off, exit your vehicle and take pictures and have your picture taken under the sign. Alternatively, have a quick look as you drive by. Taxi service would be another easy way to visit the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign during your visit to the city.

A must to do when in Vegas. To get good photos you'll need a proper camera light in the evening, or there is always people there who earn cash by doing it for you. The 10 dollars we paid was well worth it.
