To help with your Las Vegas trip plans, here are three of our favorite Las Vegas selfie spots — and a great offer to stay at Silverton.
Number 1: Welcome to Las Vegas Sign
It’s definitely the most famous landmark in Las Vegas — the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign, which has been in place on the Las Vegas Strip since 1959. The sign is located just a few miles from Silverton Casino — in the median at 5100 Las Vegas Boulevard South, north of the historic stone pillars of the old McCarran Field on the east side, and across from the Bali Hai Golf Club.
There are plenty of tips for getting a selfie at the sign. It gets busy, so be prepared to wait in line. The most helpful tip is getting there early. Consider a morning visit, when it is cooler and the crowds of selfie-seekers are at a minimum.
BONUS TIP: Where Traveler Magazine suggests two other Las Vegas landmark signs, both located at the other end of the Las Vegas Strip. The newest — the Las Vegas Gateway Arches — is located on the north end of the Strip between St. Louis Ave. and Bob Stupak Ave. at the base of The STRAT tower. The illuminated arches form a gateway to downtown Las Vegas. There are over 13,000 lights on the arches, and the sign changes color (which makes for a great time-lapse video clip). Just a few blocks away, you will find another never-crowded selfie spot with 26-foot showgirls, dice and poker chips stacked high enough to sit on and the city of Las Vegas logo.
Number 2: Silverton Mermaids
It may be a desert out there — but it’s not a visit to Las Vegas without taking a trip to see the famed Silverton Mermaids. Legend has it that spotting a mermaid will bring you luck for the rest of the day. Located just a few miles from the Las Vegas Strip, Silverton Casino is home to a 117,000 gallon aquarium, where mermaids make appearances Thursday through Sunday (schedule online).
BONUS TIP: If you miss the mermaids, stop by at 1:30 and 4:30pm for an equally interesting stingray feeding. Wait for one of the bigger rays to press its face on the glass for the perfect selfie backdrop!
Number 3: The Arts District
About a mile from Downtown Las Vegas, the Historic Arts District is vivid, eclectic, and ever-growing thanks to the city’s remarkably creative locals. Beautifully decorated with vibrant murals around every corner, this cool spot is a must-see for tourists who enjoy the quirky side of life. If you love street art, visit on every trip—many murals are created for the Life is Beautiful festival and change yearly, according to Where Traveler.
BONUS TIP: If you visit in September, the Life is Beautiful music festival puts street art front and center. You’ll literally find dozens and dozens of dynamic murals and art installations throughout Downtown Las Vegas. It’s selfie nirvana.
