With the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign
The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign is a classic in this city full of neon lights. The 25-foot tall roadside sign is in the median at the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip.
The sign, which was designed by Betty Willis and erected in 1959, is also listed on the State Register of Historic Places. A small parking lot is located by the sign so it’s very easy to get the perfect picture of this Las Vegas icon.
At the Fountains of Bellagio
Another easily recognizable site in Las Vegas is the Fountains at Bellagio. These fountains have a choreographed water performance that’s set to light and music and plays every 30 minutes between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., and every 15 minutes between 8 p.m. and midnight.
The performances are set to different genres of music, so each one you see will be completely different in style. Plus, since the 1,214 fountains shoot water up to 460 feet in the air, it’s very easy to get the perfect photo no matter where you’re standing.
With an Elvis Impersonator
While Graceland is the place where Elvis Presley once lived, Las Vegas is where his memory lives on. There are countless shows along the Strip with Elvis impersonators singing some of his most famous tunes. You can even have an Elvis impersonator officiate your Las Vegas wedding.
However, if you really want the best Elvis pictures, head down to the Fremont Street Experience. Here, you can find plenty of Elvis impersonators in every color of jumpsuit imaginable who will happily take a picture with you for a tip.
Inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian
A trip to Las Vegas is like a trip around the world, especially when you step foot inside the Grand Canal Shoppes at the Venetian. This 875,000 square-foot shopping mall brings touches of Venice, Italy to the desert.
There are so many photo ops here that the hard part is finding the best one. You can choose the two-story waterfall at the Palazzo Waterfall Atrium and Gardens. Or, take a shot along the quarter-mile Grand Canal with its gondoliers and blue sky-painted ceiling.
With the Las Vegas Strip Behind You
No picture of Las Vegas can sum up your vacation better than one with the bright lights of the Strip behind you. For the best picture, you need to get up pretty high. Some hotels have rooftop pools or observation decks that offer the perfect photo spot.
Additionally, check online for great recommendations on which hotels will have the best views for that amazing picture. The Aria hotel, for example, has a bar called the “View Bar”, that offers an amazing view while you sip your favorite cocktail.
On your next trip to Las Vegas, make sure you don’t leave before you get some pictures of these classic Las Vegas spectacles.
