Vegas is a picture perfect destination!

      You probably have a digital camera -- either one specifically made for taking pictures, or attached to your smart phone. When you're in Las Vegas, there are plenty of places to put it to good use, with its neon lights and famous boulevard.  Book your trip and stroll the Strip, because there's a photo op around just about every corner.

 The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign.    No visit to Vegas would be complete without a stop at the famous "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign.  Located on the south end of the Strip, it's one of the most recognizable signs in the world and also one of the most copied. The original designer, Betty Willis, created the sign in 1959 and never copyrighted it. It's the reason why you'll find this sign, or a version of it, everywhere from T-shirts to mugs to beach towels. So when you're here, get your picture with the real thing.

The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas.Romance is in the air when you arrive at Paris Las Vegas.  The hotel's focal point is a 1/2 size replica of the Eiffel Tower, with its 11th floor restaurant with stunning view of the lights below.  Of course, don't miss the elevator ride to the top - at 460 feet, you'll experience a perfect panoramic 360-degree view of Las Vegas. For more great photo ops, don't miss The Arc de Triomphe, The Louvre, The Paris Opera House, and the Alexander III Bridge-all reproduced to the smallest detail.

Those seeking vintage Vegas will enjoy the downtown area known as Fremont Street.  Although there are plenty of classic Vegas hotels here, you can't miss modern technology at its best with the world's largest LED canopy of light.  With more than 12 million lights, the overhead canopy displays music videos and special light shows nightly.  Make your trip to Fremont Street's Viva Vision show at night and you'll be amazed that it's as bright as day when the lights are on!

The Mirage Volcano has been erupting for more than 20 years, and now produces flames that are hotter and larger than ever, with a new fire lagoon feature.  The creators have installed dozens of fire cannons under water that will explode on command.  The effect is a choreographed fountain of fire and scored to the vibrant music of Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart.

The majestic Fountains of Bellagio.Just take a stroll down Las Vegas Boulevard and you'll get a glimpse of the world.  It's the most recognizable street in the world and you'll see first hand Bellagio's fountains, New York's famed skyline, Luxor's great pyramid, Venetian waterways and squares and secluded lakeside shows at Wynn Las Vegas.

For more scenic shots, take a quick trip to Lake Mead where you can see the famous Hoover Dam.  A quick 30-minute drive from the heart of Vegas, the Hoover Dam will amaze you with its size and commanding presence.
