The Welcome To Las Vegas Sign is as fabulous as the city itself.
This landmark of Las Vegas is perhaps one of the most visited places in the city. It is located at the beginning of the Las Vegas Strip, right across from the airport. That’s it – you just entered the greatest “Sin City” in the World! Feeling guilty already? Ha, ha… don’t worry! It’s just in your head so to say… :)
The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada sign was designed by Betty Willis and built in 1959 by Western Neon. Amazing to learn is that this sign has been never copyrighted. Therefore, you can are many replicas of it all over the city. The Welcome to Downtown sign one of them and it can be seen in two places:
- At the end of the strip, at the intersection of Main Street and St. Louis Ave.
- On Fremont street right on the Slotzilla zip-line Tower
But you can also find it on the slopes of Mount Charleston! I saw it when I participated in the Las Vegas Ski and Snowboard Resort Party.
It is funny that on St. Patrick’s day the sign is all green! :)
The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada Sign is one of the many Las Vegas iconic neon signs that make this city so famous. Hundreds of tourists stop by every day to take photos of themselves with this symbol. Many of the Las Vegas strip tours also include a stop at the sign for taking photos.
