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 across from the airport. Hundreds of tourists stop by every day to take photos of themselves with the famous sign.  Most of the Las Vegas strip tours also include a stop at the sign for taking photos.

The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign was designed by Betty Willis and built in 1959 by Western Neon.

What is interesting to know is that this sign has been never copyrighted, so there 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:

  1. At the end of the strip, at the intersection of Main Street and St. Louis Ave.
  2. On Fremont street right on the Slotzilla zip-line Tower

But the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign is just one of the many Las Vegas iconic neon signs that make the this city of lights famous. You can see them on the strip as well as downtown, on the Fremont Street East and especially on the Fremont Street Experience. Most of them are standing and but some are just nostalgic relics of the past, hosted by the well-known Neon Museum downtown Las Vegas.
