Las Vegas Sign

Description

Straddling Las Vegas Blvd, south of the Strip proper, is the city’s most iconic sign, which announces in vintage style, ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada.’ Of course, when Betty Willis designed it in the late 1950s, it wasn’t retro – it was cutting-edge Googie style, with an atomic-modern starburst at the top and, on the back, a friendly reminder to ‘Drive Carefully’ and ‘Come Back Soon.’
