• Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas - Las Vegas, Nevada

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Never was a graphic design more emblematic of a city than the much copied "never copyrighted" 25-ft tall Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Erected at the south end of the Strip in 1959, it has become an instantly recognizable symbol of Vegas and is now included in the National Register of Historic Places. The sign was designed by Betty Willis, a graphic designer who was also part of the team responsible for the iconic Stardust Casino sign.

      If you go:
      A small parking lot was created in the median of Las Vegas Boulevard in December 2008, so there's no longer any need to risk life and limb crossing the road for a photograph.
