Add indulgent excess to your feed with the best Instagram spots in Las Vegas

Thank goodness for smart phones because in Las Vegas, you’ll want a camera in your hand at all times. The impossibly photogenic City of Sin is filled with all kinds of curiosities – sky high dancing fountains, flickering neon lights, misplaced world landmarks – and each as iconic as the next. Here’s the best Instagram spots in Las Vegas for you to hashtag to your heart’s content.

Paris Hotel

Fake it till you make it to France – the Eiffel Tower outside Paris Hotel is an iconic (if not confusing) Las Vegas landmark. While it’s only half the size of the original, it’s still an impressive sight. Channel your inner Parisien in a striped Breton top at the foot of the tower or scale your way to its observation deck for some stunning sights over the city of sin.

Bellagio Fountains

The grand lights show at Bellagio Fountains is the ultimate Boomerang material, with hundreds of choreographed water jets propelling water hundreds of feet into the sky. While you’ll be able to see its musical performance in the day, it really comes to life at night when it’s all lit up against dark sky. An added perk: it’s free. Don’t forget to head inside for a look at Vegas’ best art gallery at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art.

High Roller

Grab the ultimate Las Vegas panorama at the High Roller, a gigantic 550 foot tall observation wheel at the LINQ. Bigger than both the Singapore Flyer and the London Eye, you’ll be able to soar sky high over the city in one of its glass cabins which can fit up to 40 people. Once you’ve finished snapping for your Instagram, take a moment and bask in it all – don’t worry, the ride lasts 30 minutes so you’ve got time.

VooDoo Zip Line

Get adrenaline high over Las Vegas on the VooDoo Zip Line. You may have to hand your phone to someone else to get the perfect shot of you thrill-seeking over the skyline. Starting off at the 50th floor of the Rio Las Vegas’ Masquerade Tower, you’ll zoom across on a wire at maximum speeds of 33 miles per hour and be able to even pick out the Nevada mountain range in the distance.

Grand Canyon

The ultimate day trip out of the Vegas strip, the Grand Canyon is an American icon and one of the country’s most visited sites. With miles of peach rock reaching out as far as the eye can see, it’s a haven for landscape photographers (if you can snap a photo without the tourists, that is). One of the best ways to see it is to jump on a Grand Canyon West Legacy Tour, which will take you through the Native American history of the area.

New York New York

It’s a hell of a town – uh – hotel. The sight of the cherry red Big Apple roller coaster weaving in and out of the New York-inspired hotel is unforgettable, especially when the bright yellow taxi-cab inspired carriages go racing past. Get up close and personal with a quick video or snap a picture from the walkway below, designed to look like the Brooklyn Bridge.

Fremont Street

Fremont Street is second only to the Las Vegas Strip and is where you’ll find the dizzying neon signs that dominate any film set in the city of excess. Lined with casinos, clubs and live music venues, the best time to go is in the evening when its millions of LED lights sputter to life and colour dominates. (If you’re on the Pop Culture Walking Tour don’t worry, it’ll pass right by here.)

Imperial Palace Auto Collections

Car buffs, this one’s for you. This sprawling auto sanctuary is part museum, part dealership with scores of rare and vintage cars on display. Squeeze into a charming little buggy or work up the courage to ask someone where the famous cars are – Johnny Carson’s family car as well as Hitler’s Mercedes once lived here.

Till next year. 🎰 #Vegas #prb2017

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign

If you’re driving into Las Vegas, it’s impossible to miss this iconic road sign which greets newcomers on their way in. Painted in bright yellows, whites, reds and blues, it’s exactly what your Instagram followers will eat up and you don’t have to worry about missing the shot as you drive past – they’ve set up a car park beside it just for that purpose. Be sure to check out our guide to the best Las Vegas exhibitions you won’t want to miss!

The Boneyard

Another neon haven on the list, The Boneyard is both eerie and surreal as a scrap yard full of retired signs. The remote neon museum is so popular with snap-happy tourists that they’ve actually started introducing photography tours of the area, but they fill up fast so get booking quick.
