One of the most famous landmarks in vegas, the Las Vegas Welcome sign, is located in the median at 5100 Las Vegas Boulevard South just north of McCarran Airport. Installed in 1959, the sign is owned by Young Electric Sign Company which leases it to Clark County and hosts thousands of visitors a day. The sign is 25 foot tall and has a grassy area where visitors can stand below it for pictures. There is a small, 12 car parking lot in the median which is entered by driving south on Las Vegas Boulevard. The sign is considered the southern entrance to the famous Las Vegas Strip.
