1 — Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

Probably the most famous thing to do in Las Vegas, apart from visiting the casinos, is having your picture taken next to the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” Sign. To avoid the crowds, mornings are usually the best time to visit. Don’t forget to check where the sun is in the sky to get the best lighting.
