"Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign
"Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign Review
This neon-and-incandescent sign, in a median of Las Vegas Boulevard south of Mandalay Bay, is one of Sin City's most enduring icons. The landmark dates back to 1959, and was approved for listing on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009. Young Electric Sign Company currently leases the sign to Clark County but the design itself was never copyrighted, and currently exists in the public domain. (This, of course, explains why you see so many likenesses all over town.) There is a parking lot in the median just south of the sign. If you prefer to go on foot, expect a 10-minute walk from Mandalay Bay.
