What happens in Vegas certainly won’t stay here if you document your trip at several of the Strip’s most photo-worthy spots. Whether you’re sipping cocktails on the world’s tallest observation wheel or dancing at the city’s hottest clubs, there are plenty of Sin City memories you’ll never want to forget. Snap away!

Caesars Palace Fountains

 

In addition to the 160 specialty stores in The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, this giant “shopping wonder of the world” features a spectacular animatronic show. The Fall of Atlantis includes photo-worthy fire and water features plus larger-than-life Greek gods creatively narrating this ancient legend. Not only is the show a free photo op, but you also won’t want to miss the nearby 50,000-gallon aquarium with more than 300 saltwater fish. The show takes place every hour, on the hour, starting at 11 a.m.

Tip: If you’re looking for a more tranquil spot, take a stroll around the resort’s outdoor fountains and surrounding flower gardens. Evel Knievel was seriously injured when he attempted to jump them on his motorcycle in 1967, but in 1989, his son, Robbie, successfully completed his father’s mission.

GIADA 

Try chef Giada DeLaurentiis’ fine Italian cuisine with West Coast influences and make all your social media followers drool at shots from her eponymous restaurant inside The Cromwell. The Food Network star’s first restaurant boasts mouthwatering favorites such as Marsala meatballs and the Strip’s first antipasto station. Take the perfect selfie thanks to the restaurant’s retractable windows that bathe patrons with natural desert light.

Tip: Request a table near the window and enjoy stunning views of Caesars Palace, as well as the Fountains of Bellagio.

VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub & Lounge

This indoor-outdoor, two-story nightclub perched atop the 51st floor of the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino boasts stunning Vegas views. Before you groove the night away, strike a pose on the 40,000-pound steel staircase that was airlifted to the top of the resort. And hey — there’s no designated dance floor so make the atmosphere more fluid and shake it anywhere under the starry sky. Speaking of shaking, snap a shot of the award-winning flair bartenders as they mix magical libations such as the Witch Doctor or Love Potion. Warning: You might start kissing everything in sight.

Tip: Book a table reservation in advance via email (VoodooVIPSales@caesars.com) and head to the VooDoo Steakhouse for dinner before the club opens.

Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub

Photo ops abound at this day-to-night Las Vegas nightclub that offers an around-the-clock party at The Cromwell. Come nightfall, its 65,000-square-foot Beach Club morphs into an indoor-outdoor rooftop venue. Check out the Beach Club on Tuesday nights during the summers for the unforgettable NIGHTSPLASH pool party. You’ll certainly want to take pictures, but we recommend keeping your phone out of the pool to avoid that sinking feeling. When the nightclub closes, there’s always After Hours, which boasts four separate rooms and 55 bottle-service tables nestled in The Cromwell’s basement.

Tip: We suggest booking tables and tickets in advance, especially when hot artists such as Trey Songz, Big Sean and 50 Cent are performing.

High Roller Observation Wheel

It’s similar to its inspiration from across the pond, but at 550 feet tall, the High Roller is 107 feet taller than the London Eye. As many as 40 people can fit into each of its 28 air conditioned pods, which are fully enclosed in glass. We recommend a night ride to enhance the 360-degree views. Afraid of heights? Sip on some liquid courage! Alcoholic (and non-alcoholic) drinks are available for purchase and guests can also enjoy an open bar cabin with the purchase of a Happy Half Hour ticket. If you’re traveling in a large group, you can also rent your own cabin, complete with a bartender.

Tip: Order tickets in advance and stand on the right side of your cabin for the best shots during a 30-minute ride around the world’s tallest observation wheel.

 Eiffel Tower Experience

Trick your family and friends into thinking you’re on a European getaway by snagging a shot from the top of Paris Las Vegas‘ Eiffel Tower. This stunning half-scale replica of France’s most beloved landmark lights up at night and offers sweeping panoramic views. Fill up on French fare — including escargot and savory crepes — at the Eiffel Tower Restaurant before riding the elevator to the 46th floor, where the observation deck awaits at the most romantic spot in Las Vegas.

Tip: Kodak’s Total Snap Shot kiosk offers commemorative “France in Vegas” photos to keep as a memento.

Welcome to Las Vegas Sign

You didn’t think we would forget the granddaddy of all Las Vegas picture stops did you? The “Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada” sign is a Vegas icon that has greeted visitors since 1959. So it’s pretty much a required stop on your Vegas vacation. With all that foot traffic, it’s no surprise that there always seems to be a costume character – Elvis! Showgirls! – around to pose with you (for a tip). But our favorite shots are when folks get creative with everything from gymnastic jumps to clever costumes. You’re a character, the Las Vegas Sign is a character, be funny.

Tip: There’s no “official” photo taker at the sign. If anyone says they are, they’re just trolling for tips. Folks line up and take their own pictures. So be kind and don’t hog the backdrop. Also if you visit in October you’ll see the sign go pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month and in March it goes green for St. Patrick’s Day.
