No trip to Las Vegas is complete without visiting this landmark. Designed by Betty Willis in 1959, this famous neon sign welcomes millions of visitors to Las Vegas each year. Willis never copyrighted the sign's design, and consequently it's become synonymous with Las Vegas and appears on all kinds of souvenirs and artwork. On May 1, 2009, the landmark sign was officially added to the National Register of Historic Places. For many years, the sign was on the outskirts of town and stood in the median to greet drivers, but now it's surrounded by hotels and has become popular enough that a parking lot was built just for it. There's no admission fee or charge for parking, but if you visit during the busier parts of the day, be prepared to wait in line to take your picture in front of the landmark sign.
5200 Las Vegas Blvd. S.
Las Vegas, NV 89119
