Who hasn’t dreamed of a weekend in Vegas? Perhaps a Bachelor/Bachelorette Party, getting married or just want to get away from the stress of everyday life and just unwind. Las Vegas has everything from gaming to great shopping, restaurants, spas and shows. Las Vegas is also home to some of the most iconic signs in the US. They are so Iconic that even people who have never been there could identify some of these signs. For those who have, they will stir up memories or even perhaps the saying “What Happens in Vegas stays in Vegas”.
1) Welcome to the Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada
This is a must for anyone who plans a trip to Vegas! Quite often there are impersonators working the sign for tips and why not bust out a tip when you can get a picture with Elvis and all your friends in front of this sign? This was probably the best $5 tip I ever spent in my life! They even provided Elvis glasses for everyone.
The second shot to grab is a photo with your fingers making the V in Vegas! I mean seriously this is an awesome shot!
2) Cowboy Sign
Driving to the north end of Las Vegas Blvd. takes you to Freemont Street and old Las Vegas. Here you will see the classic signs lit up between the lanes! Nothing brings back the vibe of old Las Vegas like these signs, The Rat Pack and Elvis!
3) Pawn Stars
The Gold & Silver Pawn Shop has made its mark in Las Vegas with their show on TV. Now you drive by and there is a line to just get inside. Inside you can buy more things Chumley than antique firearms. Its also easy to get to as its between The Strip & Freemont St.
There must be something about people walking down the Las Vegas Strip, have a few alcoholic beverages with friends and all of a sudden they loose their inhibitions and must have a picture with Buzz Light Year or Woody. It started with one or two, not there are several congregated fighting for you tips!
5) Mobile Signs
Here’s a genius idea! almost everyone who visits Vegas ends up walking the strip (Las Vegas BLVD) at some point. Why not make a mobile billboard and run it up and down the strip. I’m sure it is no more expensive than trying to find real estate on the strip to place a sign.
6) Hotel Signs
It’s hard to pick any one hotel sign. Just drive the strip and you will understand! I can say the newer hotels like the Aria and Planet Hollywood are coming up with bigger and brighter signs. They are huge and movie screen quality and really capture your attention.
7) Las Vegas Blvd. Sign
Is there a more recognizable street sign in the US? Millions of tourists walk down its path every year with hopes of winning it big, bachelor/bachelorette parties, conventions, having fun with friends or perhaps live up to the legendary advertising campaign “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” . Any way you see it, it’s easily one of the most recognizable signs in the US!
Signs and Las Vegas just go together. There are so many more to mention but hey, it’s 7 sure signs not 100! What are you waiting for, it’s time to go check out Vegas.
