Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas SignPosted By LasVegas.Net - 02/13/14

The “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign is one of the City’s most recognizable, longstanding markers. The sign is about 25 feet tall, attached to two blue posts off center that are almost invisible at night from a distance.  The sign displays white, red, and yellow neon colors.  The face of main body uses white, red, and blue colors.  It is a diamond-like rhombus shape with rounded corners.  There is an eight pointed star-looking shape at the top and to the side.  The star has red and yellow neon.  “Welcome” is spelled out in red neon inside white neon circles below the star and on the top part of the sign.  “Las Vegas” is in red, and the rest of the words are in blue.  The main part of the sign is opaque white with an outline of yellowish-white looking lights.

The Sign was first installed in 1959.  It is listed in the National Register of Historic Place with the United States Department of the Interior National Park Service (2009) as well as Nevada’s State Register of Historic Places.  The sign is still widely visited and popular.  The area where it is situated has a small parking lot and is accessible at all hours.  There are occasional weddings there.  People can frequently be seen taking pictures.  Sometimes Elvis impersonators are available to take pictures with visitors.
