The Best Places to Take Instagram Photos In Las Vegas
Las Vegas instagram spots and photo opps are everywhere but some are more instagrammable than others. These are the best Instagram spots in Las Vegas, for their background, colors, lighting and being less obvious than the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Although that’s still on the list of photo spots Las Vegas! Along with the most interesting and beautiful places to take your IG photos and the latest best places to take photos in Las Vegas. Vegas is famous for new restaurants and things to do opening all of the time and businesses know people will take photos if their decor is right. So here are my top picks for the most instagram worthy places in Las Vegas.
We love living here and my husband and I love going out to eat and bar hop so we’re always trying the newest places in Vegas. I’m also not embarrassed to say, I also love a good Instagram picture too. I mean you have to make it pretty for the gram (I hope that doesn’t sound too douchey but I think most of my girls are with me) and did it really happen if you don’t have the photos to prove it?!
Businesses are stepping up their game and making their Vegas spots instagrammable! Why not? It’s free PR for them and great pics for us and beats a bathroom selfie.
Whether you’re the outdoorsy type, history buff, fashionista, foodie or all of the above, these spots are the best photo spots in Vegas to take your photos and create memories.

For Iconic Las Vegas Photos: Bellagio Fountains
This is one of my favorite spots in Vegas and it never grows old for me. I love the music and atmosphere. The best spot to see the Bellagio fountains and take photos used to be from Hyde but that’s now the Mayfair Supper Club and doesn’t have the balcony anymore and Yellowtail.
Make a reservation for the balcony at Yellow Tail and order the truffle tuna pizza. As you can’t beat the views of the Bellagio Fountains and Eiffel Tower lit up from here with a cocktail or 2. Book the hotel.
The other 2 spots to take photos of the Bellagio Fountains are either from Mon Ami Gabi, Paris (one of my favorite lunch and dinner terraces on the strip) or The Beer Park. Both of these are at Paris and have great views of the Bellagio Fountains. It depends if you’re looking for food or just a drink.
If you’re looking for elegant restaurants, dining and a colorful place to take your Instagram photos visit the Wynn. It’s one of my favorite places to eat and shop. The atriums normally pretty busy but most people are taking photos so you just have to wait your turn which normally doesn’t take long.
This is an ultra-cool experience where you can create your perfect shade as well as having something to take home to remember Vegas. You can take photos in front of the cute boxwood grass wall with an instagram prop relevant to why ever you’re in Vegas; whether it’s a wedding, bachelorette, to gamble or just to have fun. You can also get your makeup done here ready for your big night out or wedding so you look picture perfect.
Las Vegas Instagram photo sports | Buzzy restaurant Catch at Aria
There are lots of people so you won’t have a problem finding someone to take a picture or 50 of you. Another place close by to take photos is in the Louboutin shoe sculptures in front of the Chandlier Bar at The Cosmopolitan.
Bellagio Conservatory Las Vegas
As long as you’re not allergic to flowers this is a gorgeous, well lit spot for your Las Vegas photos with all of the family. Each season sees an incredible and different display created by the enormously talented horticulturalists and designers who transform this 14,000-square-foot floral playground. The Bellagio also has so many great restaurants to dine at in the Bellagio to make it worth the trek over if you’re not staying here. Plus it’s free making it one of the best places to take photos in las Vegas!
Mott 32 Vegas at the Venetian
Whats the food like at Mott 32?
Forget photos for a moment and lets talk about the food at Mott 32! Even if you have no interest in taking photos, go for the food. Us English ex pats are particular about Chinese food (and Indian) so finding a good Chinese restaurant is something of a mission.
Mott 32 Vegas has an extensive and diverse food and drink menu and a killer happy hour which we went to before going to a show. We worked our way through pretty much the entire food side of it (besides the vegetables; had to leave room for the good stuff!). I’d have worked my way through the drinks too but I was the DD. Honestly, we were so impressed the first time we went, not sure what happened the 2nd time we went but it wasn’t quite as good and we haven’t been back a 3rd time.
We all had different favorites and there’s something for everyone including vegetarians. My parents are here for the Winter right now so it was family night. Dad was into the Szechuan Chicken and Mum and I were torn between the Duck Pancakes (super light and crisp batter and meat you could tell what it was) and Sesame Prawn Toast which melted in your mouth. The staff were so kind and attentive; service really makes a place for me. You can have great food but without great service I tend not to go back as we are so spoilt for choice in Vegas but Mott 32 checks all of the boxes: food, service, and decor.
Pretty much anywhere you go in the various areas here you’re going to get a great photo backdrop. My suggestions are either in the sexy red Boom Boom Room with plush red furniture and a feathered light which is the centerpiece of the room. Tthey even have burlesque performers here on occasion.
The other spot is outside the restrooms. That might sound weird but it looks like a narrow street in Hong Kong. So if you want to pretend you took a trip East, head there. We’re already planning our next trip back.
Instagram worthy places in Las Vegas | Valley of Fire
I take all of my out of town guests here. It’s only about an hour drive from the strip but another World. Red Rock and Mt. Charleston are closer and also picturesque but the Valley of Fire State Park has so much diversity from slot canyons to the waves to the red rocks. The hikes are all pretty short so you can see a lot in a few hours.
Bring a picnic and soak in the views while snapping your pics to show that you did more than just eat, drink, and gamble in Las Vegas. If you’re looking for outdoor spots to shoot Red Rock and Valley of Fire are the best places to take photos in Las Vegas for that.
Historic Las Vegas Instagram Photos: Neon Museum
If you’re looking for a historic Las Vegas Instagram spot book a night tour at the Neon Museum (they offer local discounts). It’s worth it visiting and a fun stop before or after exploring Downtown Las Vegas. All of classic hotels neon lights of yesterday end up here so it’s like walking back in time.
Most Popular Las Vegas Photo Spot: Las Vegas Sign
If it’s not the best Las Vegas Instagram spot, it’s the most popular. I mean, if you don’t have a picture in front of the ‘Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas’ sign, were you really ever in Las Vegas? It’s a super popular (busy) spot so try and go either super early or super late but it’s free! It looks close to a lot of hotels on the strip, so you might be tempted to walk there, don’t! It’s further than you think unless you’re staying at The Four Seasons, Mandalay Bay, The Luxor or an athlete.
Downtown Container Park and Fire Breathing Praying Mantis
Downtown Vegas has gone under quite the transformation and has some hip spots now (there’s still some shady spots so stick to the main roads). After you’ve zip lined down Fremont St and seen the sharks at the Golden Nugget check out Downtown Container Park as a unique spot after dark. Besides taking photos, you can also stop for a drink at one of the bars. And don’t forget to snap your Instagram photo in front of the praying mantis when he’s breathing fire.
Best view of the strip for your Las Vegas photos: Cosmopolitan Hotel Suites
Every room here has a balcony with strip views making it one of the most instagram worthy places in Las Vegas. It’s the perfect place to snap a selfie with the iconic Vegas strip and Bellagio Fountains as your backdrop. We love this modern and chic hotel which has a trendier, younger crowd and some of the best restaurants (Beauty & Essex) and bars (Barber Shop).
Black Tap at the Venetian
Book a patio table at Black Tap and forget the diet, it’s worth the calories! The burgers and decadent desserts are some of the best in Vegas if you’re not doing the luxury dining scene. Then sit back, relax and pretend you’re in Italy overlooking the canal complete with gondola, bridges, and tower.
Seven Magic Mountains Las Vegas | For a colorful Vegas Instagram photo
Stop at Seven Magic Mountains if you’re visiting from California. It’s a little way from the strip but if it’s on your route it’s worth a quick stop. It may not rank number 1 for the best Instagram spots in Las Vegas but it’s still up there for its uniqueness and colors.
Cafe Lola, the girliest instagram worthy place in Las Vegas | Caesars Palace, Henderson & Summerlin
Cafe Lola now has 3 locations so you can either take your Las Vegas instagram photos in Caesars or do it like a local off strip at one of Cafe Lola’s 2 super pretty locations (Henderson and Summerlin). Because after all of your walking and late nights, coffee’s a must. This is where the locals come to take their photos and meet their girls.
It’s not close to the strip but if you want to get away from the strip or are headed to Red Rock casino or canyon, stop in for a coffee or something stronger and get your instagram photos by the phone, bike, swing, or any of the pretty floral walls.
Other Scenic Places in Vegas worth a mention for your Las Vegas photos & instagram spots
-The look out at Red Rock national park just past the main entrance is another instagram worthy place in Las Vegas about 30 minutes from the strip but well worth the drive.
– The terrace at Omnia of the strip with a great shot of the Eiffel Tower behind you
-The High Roller, on the Linq at sunset
