5 Can't-Miss Selfie-Taking Spots
In Las Vegas
If you're planning a trip to the Entertainment Capital of the World, prepare yourself to snap a few selfies. Las Vegas may have given itself the title, but for most visitors it doesn't disappoint. Warm desert weather, neon lights and a wild reputation makes Sin City a popular place for thrill seekers and card sharks, but it's also home to some of the most iconic landmarks in America. Staying long or passing through, be sure to find these five can't-miss selfie-taking spots.
A Wonderful Welcome
The famous Las Vegas welcome sign is hard to miss but easy to pass by on your way into the Strip. Before you get too distracted by all the casinos and fountains, make a quick stop and snap a few photos in front of the sign with your selfie stick. If you happen to miss your chance going in, don't worry too much. You can catch it on your way back out, and even take a photo with the back of the sign that says, "Drive Carefully" and "Come Back Soon," depending on your Vegas experience.
A huge part of the city's success has been tied to show business, with hundreds of movies using Las Vegas landmarks as familiar backdrops. One of the most impressive is the Bellagio Fountains. Its massive design, color-changing lights and choreographed water effects make it the perfect setting for your most creative selfies. Since there are shows playing on a regular schedule during the day and night, you can easily plan the perfect time to snap your shot, or just be spontaneous.
The Las Vegas Strip is lined with tall, bright buildings. With wall-to-wall entertainment options, many facilities are bursting at the seams, giving birth to sky decks, Ferris wheels and zip lines. The VooDoo Zip Line at the Rio gives you a quick thrill and a great view of the city. Vegas is full of tall spots to feel on top of the world. Ascend to the Top of the World restaurant at the Stratosphere or seek out the observation deck in the Eiffel Tower to get a photo worthy of a vintage postcard.
Hanging With Hoover
It's hard to leave the city once you get drawn into the bright lights, but one fun way to get away is to take a quick trip over to Hoover Dam. It's also a perfect destination for when you're driving into the city from the east. Tours offer a look inside the massive structure and provide facts about its interesting history, while a wide range of beautiful Nevada and Arizona views offer backdrops of the Black Canyon and the Colorado River.

Weird House Of Wax
While running into a celebrity in Las Vegas isn't out of the question, you've got a better chance heading over to the Las Vegas branch of Madame Tussauds. More proof that the city's Hollywood ties run deep, the wax museum is home to some of the world's most famous faces and stays up to date on new celebrities so everyone you know can find their favorite movie star, TV personality or cultural icon. Most look so real, you're just a clever pose away from tricking untrained eyes.
