The Best Places to Have Your Photo Taken in Las Vegas

Get out those cameras and phones at these attractions that make a great backdrop for memories.

From Las Vegas’ most iconic attractions to statues and art you can’t miss, your photo album will be complete after you pose for pictures at these photogenic spots. Say cheese!

Bellagio Fountains

Bellagio Fountains

Britney Spears has danced atop the fountains, and they’ve been the background for numerous awards shows. Search out a spot among the many nooks that provide an unobstructed of Lake Bellagio, or, for the best selfie ever, head to the balcony at Hyde Bellagio and snap a shot from the balcony that seems to put you in the center of Lake Bellagio.

Cosmopolitan Public Art

Roark Gourley’s Pink Lace-Up Pump is bold and glam—it’ll be one of the most unusual photos you bring home. Take and hour and explore the common areas of this cool property and its many statues, wall and ceiling centerpieces, displays (such as a coffee table made of Scrabble tiles) and more.

Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam

This wonder of engineering lets you put one foot in Nevada and one in Arizona. Make sure you have plenty of photos to document your visit.

Lion Habitat Ranch

Lion Habitat Ranch

Who wouldn’t want a sweet photo with a lion cub? This ranch, which is home to the lions previously showcased at MGM Grand’s habitat, features lions from three weeks to 20 years old. You can even feed them and be a lion trainer for the day—be sure to get documentation!

Madame Tussauds

Madame Tussauds

Strike a pose with your favorite celebrity—in the music world with Beyoncé, Katy Perry or Lenny Kravitz, with sports superstars such as Joe Montana, Shaq or Muhammad Ali, or with Las Vegas favorites such as the Rat Pack, Elvis, Debbie Reynolds and Siegfried & Roy. There are many interactive experiences along the way, so be sure to leave plenty of time to see them all!

Neon Boneyard

Neon Boneyard

Home to more than 150 neon signs dating back to the 1930s, the two-acre Neon Boneyard features not only iconic signs from the most recognizable defunct properties on the Strip and downtown (such as the Sahara, Moulin Rouge and Stardust), but from businesses from a bygone era. It’s a true look at the history of Las Vegas. Day and night tours are available.

Skyfall Lounge

Feel like the Strip is at your feet when you hang out on the terrace at the Delano's Skyfall Lounge—with 180 degree views of desert sunsets and the neon, you've got numerous photo opps. We suggest you have dinner first at the adjoining Rivea, then snap away to your heart's content.

Stratosphere Tower

Stratosphere Tower

The city’s tallest tower provides 360 degrees of sightseeing, from indoor and outdoor decks more than 100 stories above the Las Vegas Strip. You’ll feel like you’re on top of the world as you snap a photo of the Strip’s twinkling lights behind you.

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

Installed in 1959, this iconic attraction has since become a beacon for visitors. It's located on the Strip just south of Russell Road. It was created by a legend in her own right, Las Vegas’ own graphics designer Betty Willis. This is one spot you do NOT want to miss. For bragging rights, have your picture taken on the opposite sign as well, which reads “Drive Carefully, Come Back Soon.”

The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign is one of the stops on the Big Bus double-decker tours, a hop-on, hop-off sightseeing tour that takes you along the Strip and downtown Las Vegas.
