Downtown visitors greeted by new welcome sign

A new welcome sign, featuring two 26-foot-tall showgirls and the words “City of Las Vegas” now greets visitors and locals heading downtown. 

The $400,000 sign was dedicated last week at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Main Street, just north of the Stratosphere.

City officials are hoping the sign will become an additional iconic photo op in the manner of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” sign on the southern portion of the Las Vegas Strip, near Mandalay Bay.

The Stratosphere is designating a nearby parking lot for would-be photographers and their subjects. The parking area is expected to open in about a month.
