Are you looking for the most Instagrammable Places in Las Vegas? Las Vegas has so many photo spots both on and off the strip. Here 10 Instagram worthy spots you can see in a 3-day weekend.
This past April 2021, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority invited us to visit Las Vegas for 3-days. The last time I flew to Las Vegas in 2016, I went straight to Zion National Park. We only stopped by the Neon Museum on our way out of Las Vegas.
This time, I was excited to explore Las Vegas. I was so thankful that Visit Las Vegas put together a 3-day itinerary for us. We included Instagrammable places in Las Vegas that were both on and off the Las Vegas strip. We also stayed at the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas – that just opened this March 2021. I loved that the hotel was just one mile off the strip. It made it easy to take Lyfts and cabs on and off at the strip. You’ll be seeing a full review of the hotel on the blog soon!
Here are 10 Most Instagrammable Places in Las Vegas
1. Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign
Address: 5200 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89119
If you’re looking for a classic Las Vegas photo, I highly recommend taking photos in front of the iconic 1950s neon sign. This tourist attraction is open 24 hours a day. If you’re looking to capture a photo without crowds or a line behind you, I recommend going in the morning on a weekday. Maddy and I went on a Monday morning at 9am. We lucked out and snapped photos in between tour buses.
2. Café Lola
Address: 4280 S Hualapai Way #109, Las Vegas, NV 89147
If you’re looking for a cute café outside the strip, Café Lola is located about 20 minutes away from the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign. This café was named Nevada’s most Instagrammable café by the Food Network. Maddy actually discovered this place on TikTok!
You’ll find floral walls, a beautiful floral phone booth, plus delicious food and unique drinks. Maddy and I stopped here for lunch after Seven Magic Mountains. We were surprised how busy the café got by noon!
3. The Neon Museum
Address: 770 Las Vegas Blvd N, Las Vegas, NV 89101
If you’re looking to visit the Neon Museum, you must reserve tickets ahead of the time online. Tickets are limited due to social distancing. The Neon Museum is located just a mile off Downtown Las Vegas/Fremont Street. I recommend visiting the Neon Museum on the day you plan to explore Fremont Street.
The Main Boneyard has more than 200 unrestored signs. You’ll find the signs illuminated with ground lighting during sunset. One thing to remember is that the Neon Museum does NOT allow professional cameras. We snapped iPhone photos and checked our cameras and bags in after we went through the security line. Masks are required and please remember to continue to socially distance while you’re visiting.
The Boneyard is available for personal and commercial photo and video shoots.
4. Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens
Address: 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Did you know there’s a 14,000 square foot botanical garden inside the Bellagio? Each season, the Horticulture and Engineering team transform the Botanical Garden with beautiful flower displays and colors. We visited the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden during the Spring Celebration, which is from March 13th-May 22nd.
The garden transforms each season. The Summer Garden is from May 29th-August 28th. The Harvest is from September 4th-November 13th. And the Holiday is from November 20th-January 1st, 2022.
5. The view of the Eiffel Tower from the Bellagio Hotel & Casino
Address: 3600 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
One view that surprised us was the view of the Paris Las Vegas Eiffel Tower on the walk up to the Bellagio Hotel and Casino. I didn’t realize that the walk up to the Bellagio was slightly on the hill. The view of the Eiffel Tower across the water of the Bellagio was pretty cool. If you’re on your way to see the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Garden, you can stop and take a few photos of the view behind you.
6. Seven Magic Mountains
Address: S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89054
If you’re looking for a unique, colorful art installation in the desert, you have to stop by Seven Magic Mountains. This exhibit was produced by the Nevada Museum of Art and the Art Production Fund. Seven Magic Mountains opened in May 2016 and is scheduled to close at the end of 2021.
You don’t need reservations, but I do recommend renting a car to get to this location. It was about 20-minute drive from the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, and it would have been impossible to call an Uber or Lyft from Seven Magic Mountains. Please remember to wear your mask and continue to socially distance.
7. Baby Birds Cafe
Address: 2910 Lake East Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89117
Baby Birds Café was one of my favorite stops during our Las Vegas weekend. We originally were going to visit Jo’s Malasadas, but we didn’t realize they were closed on Mondays. Maddy searched “cute café’s in Las Vegas” and Baby Birds Café was at the top of the list. Luckily, it was only 10 minutes from Jo’s Malasadas.
If you’re looking for another Instagram worthy café in Las Vegas, I highly recommend going to Baby Birds Café. This brunch restaurant in Las Vegas is open from 9am-3pm every day. We only grabbed drinks but the photos of the food on Google and Yelp look delicious. I highly recommend ordering one of their specialty teas.
8. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
Address: 1000 Scenic Loop Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89161
The Las Vegas Tourism board arranged for Maddy and I to take a Pink Jeep Tour through Red Rock Canyon. We went on a three-hour tour around Red Rock Canyon and got to enjoy the 13 mile look around the park. I loved stopping by Calico Hills and seeing the Petroglyph Wall – that’s the first time I’ve ever seen Petroglyphs!
If you’re looking to visit Red Rock Canyon, you can buy a day pass for $15 per vehicle. I recommend visiting the Red Rock Canyon Fees page before you go.
9. The Cosmopolitan
Address: 3708 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Along with the Bellagio Fountains and the Eiffel Tower at Paris Hotel, the Chandelier at the Cosmopolitan is one of the most recognizable spots in Las Vegas. The Chandelier is one of the lounges inside the Cosmopolitan.
We didn’t end up grabbing drinks at the Chandelier. But we did snap photos after we ate at China Pablo. The Chandelier was just outside the restaurant.
10. The Shag Room inside the Virgin Hotels Las Vegas
Address: 4455 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89169
After we grabbed dinner at Casa Calavera, we stopped by the Shag Room for drinks. This intimate space had live music, cool lounges, and a groovy vibe. It was so different from the other lounges we had seen around Las Vegas, that I thought it would be fun to add this to the list.
The Shag Room isn’t well lit – we had to adjust our camera settings to capture this beautiful space. I highly recommend stopping be here for late night drinks if you choose to stay at the Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas.
There are so many other Instagram worthy spots in Las Vegas! If we had another day or two to explore, we would have stopped by the Venetian, Sadelle’s Café inside the Bellagio, and other cute cafés outside the strip!
