The Sign

Jill's Journal: Other than the Hollywood sign high in the hills, I can’t think of a better-known sign in all the country than the iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” one. A mainstay at the southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard and the unofficial start to “The Strip” since 1959, it’s even on the National Register of Historic Places.

Although Rob had already visited the sign on his own, we just had to kick off the girls’ Vegas experience with a photo op too. There was a long line waiting for their own photos with the sign (while baking in the sun in the 108 degree heat), so we opted to pull the girls off to the side to snap a quick picture from a little farther away.

We also introduced the girls to the Strip and got plenty of ooohs and aaahs over their first glimpses of the Vegas versions of Egypt, Rome, Paris, New York, and so much more. I think we’re going to have fun here!
