The Welcome to Fabulous New Vegas sign is an unmarked location just outside of the New Vegas Strip. It can be found by exiting Camp McCarran and turning north. It is also visible as a sniper outpost in the opening cinematic.

Background[edit | edit source]

Funded in May 1959, the landmark sign was designed by Betty Willis at the request of Ted Rogich, a local salesman, who sold it to Clark County, Nevada. The sign is located in the median at 5100 Las Vegas Boulevard South and boasts a 25 feet (7.6 m) of height.

After the Great War destroyed the United States and all of its divisions passed into history, the sign became as meaningless as the ruins around it. When the city was reborn in 2274, thanks to the efforts of Robert House, the sign was modified and restored. "Las Vegas" was changed to "New Vegas" and repaired with scavenged parts and pieces. There is a smiley face in the "O" in welcome and the "E" in "New Vegas" is actually a number 3.

Notes[edit | edit source]

The sign is in a similar location to its real world analogue, the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign, except that the real world analogue is smaller in size and the "Las" on the sign has been replaced by "New".
