Not only has my Excalibur photo been recreated by numerous bloggers, but it was also shared on Excalibur’s Instagram account! This is a great spot for a colorful, fun photo, with a great view of the Hotel’s unique architecture. From Las Vegas Blvd., head to the bridge on your left. For reference, a small ticket booth is behind me, and I’m facing the main road, although I couldn’t quite see it.
Tag @she.strayed, so I can see what you snapped at this awesome location!
Be ready to take pictures quickly because this spot is normally crowded with people exiting the monorail. I was able to snap this between mobs around 9 am on a weekday. This popular photo opp. is located in front of Luxor, facing Las Vegas Blvd. For easy access, take the monorail from Excalibur, and you’ll exit directly in front of the Sphinx.
Local Tip: Look up #LuxorLasVegas on Instagram for more Luxor inspiration. There are a handful of neat spots around Luxor to add to your album.
Tropicana – New York New York Backdrop
This will be your easiest shot to get! On the corner of Tropicana and Las Vegas Blvd, at the Tropicana Hotel, there is a small garden, as seen above. Stand anywhere along the barrier for the perfect angle! Because the garden is so large, getting a great photo without people in your way is easy breezy!
Bellagio – Eiffel Tower View
My favorite Dallas influencer, Lara, captured this iconic Eiffel Tower photo while exploring the Strip with friends. Some of the best pictures are spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment shots, so get out there and make some memories!
This is, hands-down, one of the very best Instagram spots on the Las Vegas Strip. The pinks are super fun, and the entrance is a Vegas staple. Because Flamingo was one of the first casinos in town, the entrance is a well-known icon. For an extra flair, try to catch the sign with the lights on just before sunset. It’s hard to find that sweet spot, but when you do *chef’s kiss.*
Caesars Palace Trevi Fountain
My favorite thing about snagging a photo in front of Mirage on the Las Vegas Strip is the opportunity for a great photo. The area around the volcano is vast, so you don’t have to wait in line for one specific location to open up. Additionally, this isn’t a major Instagram spot, so you shouldn’t feel rushed or in people’s way. Take your time and get some cute candid shots!
T.I. Pirate Ship
From My Perfect Itinerary, Monique is my go-to photo pal for all things on the Las Vegas Strip. She knows all the best places and always gets the right angles! Check out her site for more Las Vegas content and stop by her Instagram, @myperfectitinerary, to drool over all her gorgeous photos.
This shot was taken in front of the Pirate Ship at T.I. This is directly on Las Vegas Blvd, and the area gets extremely crowded by late morning, so head out early!
There are a few great photo opportunities in front of Venetian and Palazzo, but this is my favorite! The gondolas and columns add a unique twist to the typical Strip photo. Like all the other trendy areas on the Las Vegas Strip, get here early. Monique, from My Perfect Itinerary, and I captured this around 8 am on a Tuesday. Thankfully it wasn’t crowded, although it picked up quite a bit by 9 am.
