In today’s blog post we are bringing you all the best spots to snap a great photo in Sin City. I recently went on a girls trip with a friend I met on Instagram, prior to the trip we had never actually met in real life (crazy I know right)?! But when I asked her if she wanted to go to Vegas she was up for it!!! Check out her account she’s vegan as well @gennaellis. We got along great and had such an amazing time. One of the things we knew that we wanted to do while in Vegas was take some incredible photos, so I did some research. Stay tuned for some of the most Instagrammable places in Las Vegas.
List- Most Instagrammable Places in Las Vegas
The Las Vegas Sign
Let’s start off with the classic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. If you don’t get a photo here did you even go to Vegas? Located right on the strip, my tip is go early, preferably on a weekday as it can get pretty busy.
Address 5100 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89119, USA
Seven Magic Mountains
Ok so this next spot isn’t in Vegas but just outside. It’s a desert art installation featuring 7 painted boulder totems up to 35 ft. high by Ugo Rondinone. Rent a car for this one and enjoy the desert views (take note there are no restrooms here so go the bathroom before you leave). While we were there we also took some cool desert pics.
S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89054, USA
Red Rock Canyon
This spot comes with gorgeous views, I would recommend doing this the same day as Seven Magic Mountains (as you will already be driving outside of the city). Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area lies in Nevada’s Mojave Desert. Panoramic viewing spots dot the 13-mile Scenic Drive. Pro tip bring some runners as you will be doing a bit of hiking.
1000 Scenic Loop Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89161, USA
What’s Vegas without a pool party!?! We took some cute photos poolside (don’t forget your cute pool floatie).
Downtown Las Vegas
There are so many cool murals and great photo ops in this area of town. My favourite was The Empty Club- A lonely rotating disco ball floating in the middle of the empty mirrored room of a former gas station that now illuminates the busy intersection of Fremont and 8th Street.
Symphony Park is a 61-acre site situated in downtown Las Vegas. The downtown area is located just a few miles north of the Las Vegas Strip and centrally within the Las Vegas Valley. They have a cool art installation here that looks like a bunch of big colourful straws.
361 Symphony Park Avenue, Las Vegas, NV 89106, USA
Las Vegas Strip
The photo opportunities here are endless. From the High Roller on the Link Promenade to the Eiffel Tower at the Paris, you are sure to get an Insta worthy photo or two. Pro tip the best view of the Eiffel Tower is across from the valet at the Bellagio.
Planning is key, there are so many cool places so research is essential. Pick your favourites and do the ones close together at the same time. Plan your outfits after scouting your locations, figure out what outfits you want to wear at each place. I also recommend packing a few outfits so you can do a couple changes and get as many photos as possible with different looks. I also had my Cannon camera (which takes great photos). Don’t stress you can’t do it all in one trip, I still want to go to the Neon Museum- which features signs from old casinos and other businesses displayed outdoors on 2.62 acres. But there will aways be a next time! Check out our other travel posts here.
