The Best Places For Your Vegas Selfies

If internet quotations are to be believed, Shakespeare once said “pics or it didn’t happen.” Or maybe it was Abraham Lincoln?

Documenting your vacation can be a fun way to share it with others or relive it down the line yourself. These days, many cities, hotels and attractions offer some kind of cool feature or wall for the express purpose of taking great pictures just for Instagram.

We’ve curated a selection of these, along with other highly photogenic locations that will let you have some memorable photos of your Vegas vacation for years to come.

Snap a Few at Pop Vegas: Tattoo’d America at The LINQ

Tattoo’d America, the first interactive attraction of its kind at The LINQ Hotel + Experience was built from the ground up to be touched, stepped into, sat on and of course… photographed.

A celebration of tattoo and body art, this funhouse-style attraction includes 21 interactive installations and more than 500 pieces of art, including a tattoo-themed ball pit for grown-ups, 3D tattoo body mapping, a confetti-filled pillow fight room, and an “O-Dome” filled with tattooed mannequins ready for their close-up.

If the rest of the experience stirs up a little inspiration, you can even get a temporary Inkbox tattoo or some permanent ink by Club Tattoo.

Things Are Always Looking Up at Paris, The LINQ Promenade and Rio

When it comes to getting that awesome shot you have to think big and think high: You can’t beat the views from the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas, the High Roller at The LINQ Promenade and VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub at Rio Las Vegas.

This half-scale size of the original tower in Paris, France rises 46 stories above the Las Vegas Strip and is best appreciated at night, offering a view of the Strip and the surrounding city and mountains.

If you’re in the mood for some haute cuisine, the Eiffel Tower Restaurant located about 100 feet up from the ground floor offers a lovely fountain and a closer 360-degree view of the Las Vegas Strip view along with your meal.

The High Roller observation wheel, the tallest in the world at 550 feet, offers another vantage point and a shifting perspective of the Strip and the surrounding valley throughout each full 30-minute rotation. If there’s a special occasion you’ve got in mind, you can even rent out the VIP cabin and keep the whole thing to yourself.

VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub, located off the Strip at Rio Las Vegas, has an entirely different view than Paris and LINQ’s high and mighty attractions, but is located 51 floors above the ground. Compared to the other, more subdued attractions, VooDoo is a nightlife hotspot with a double-decker layout – even the staircase is cool looking – so you can party all night and share some impressive beverages.

Statue Selfies, Anyone?

Even if you’re traveling solo to Vegas, you can get a group photo by making friends with… some statues.

Caesars Palace has the lion’s share of these, which makes sense: Rome was around long before TV, social media and video games. It seems like statue-making was THE thing to do.

There’s a trio of Caesar statues that all look quite regal – one by the parking garage, one outside of the entrance and another near the lobby.

A towering replica of David greets visitors at the Appian Way Shops, while nearby at Cleopatra’s Barge, you’ll spot the famed Egyptian ruler.

Rounding out the collection, legendary boxer Joe Louis awaits visitors near the Caesars Palace sports book and you just know you want to pose exactly like him.

Over at Paris Las Vegas, Aftermath, at statue of a man sweeping with a push broom, greets visitors coming in through the self-parking garage. As the name implies, this guy must be tidying up after some epic event – a party, perhaps? All we know is that he’s working hard and deserves a little love.

Finally, one last Vegas icon awaits at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino – the Crazy Girls sculpture. Originating at the now-imploded Riviera and based on the actual original dancers, this naughty sculpture and its iconic tagline (“No ifs, ands, or …”) has a lot of history in Vegas, and is luckily preserved for future generations to take a risque photo with.

Rosé All The Way at Vanderpump Cocktail Garden at Caesars Palace

Reality TV star and restaurateur Lisa Vanderpump has already made a name for herself in Los Angeles with chic dining spots like SUR and Pump, but her first Las Vegas outpost is a sensory spectacle.

Located near the Forum Shops, it’s hard to miss Vanderpump Cocktail Garden thanks to its pink neon sign and wrought iron fence covered in leaves.

Even though the lounge is indoors, it lives up to its name by giving off huge garden vibes throughout the stylish, lush interior that’s made to be the backdrop to a magical night out. The drinks and light bites, like the Checkmate, Bitch and Rosé Cake, respectively, are pretty darn tasty … and photogenic as well.

Have a Nice Pool Day

A point-of-view shot of two legs out by the beach or pool – that’s the classic sign of “hey, I’m on vacation and loving it.”

Las Vegas has no shortage of pools with beautiful features to enjoy and humblebrag with, like the classically inspired Venus Pool at Caesars Palace, the party scene at Drai’s Beach Club at The Cromwell, Influence overlooking The LINQ Promenade and the oasis-like Flamingo Beach Club.

 

Las Vegas sign

A classic, right?

it’s a Sign!

And no list of photo spots is complete without the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada sign. Found in the median of Las Vegas Boulevard at 5100 S. Las Vegas Boulevard, this sign has forever been associated as the symbol Vegas.

This photo op used to be a riskier proposition, but improvements in the last decade include on-site parking, so you don’t have to do any jaywalking along Las Vegas Boulevard. So gather the crew, get up close and snap a pic.
