#NoFilter: The most Insta-worthy spots in Las Vegas

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Maybe we’re biased, but we think Vegas is one of the most Instagram-worthy places ever. From the second you’re among these neon lights, there are a million moments to capture—we just hope you remember to snap some pics in the middle of all the fun.

We’ve gathered the best places in Vegas to get that perfect shot. Think you can you get them all in one epic weekend? Vegas Instagram challenge accepted.

Seven Magic Mountains

A post shared by Jordan Kahana (@jordankahana) on

About 10 miles south of Las Vegas, along Interstate 15, you’ll spot seven sets of colorful, stacked boulders towering over 30 feet. This outdoor, public art installation is Ugo Rondinone’s Seven Magic Mountains. We recommend visiting during the day to get the full effect of the bright colors in the middle of the desert.


Red Rock

Next up, we suggest taking a quick excursion a few miles west of Las Vegas to Red Rock Canyon. Red Rock has geologic features unique to the Mojave Desert that people from all over the world come to see. Take a photo of the vivid red rock formations—#nofilter needed.


Downtown Las Vegas art

Downtown Las Vegas (DTLV) is the place to be for serious Instagram material. On nearly every corner in Fremont East, there’s a mural or an art structure by artists from all over the world. You’ll spot works by Shepard Fairey, Fafi, Mike Ross, Mark Drew, and more. Take a walk around the neighborhood and you’ll find the perfect selfie backdrop.


Akhob by James Turrell

A hidden gem at Louis Vuitton at The Shops at Crystals is Akhob by James Turrell. This immersive art exhibit surrounds you in soothing colors for 24 minutes. The vibrant hues will give you exceptional Insta posts. Admission is free, but appointments are required.

The quintessential Instagram post must be taken at the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign. Our biggest tip for this one? Take your photo at sunset for prime lighting.


High Roller

The High Roller at The LINQ Promenade is the world’s tallest observation wheel, so this gives you a panoramic view of Las Vegas that’s perfect for some on-point Instagram posts. Even from the ground, looking up at the High Roller is photogenic as it changes colors depending on special occasion.


Fountains of Bellagio

The Bellagio fountains are an obvious choice for pretty pictures. If you’ve never seen it before, the show includes over 1,000 fountains, synchronized to music ranging from Pavarotti to Sinatra. Be sure to double check the show schedule here so you can capture a photo with the fountains in the air.


Foundation Room

For some serious eye-candy shots, head to the top of Mandalay Bay to the Foundation Room. Both the inside and outside are beautiful—the interior has Indian, Irish and English influences that create an exotic ambience. Better yet, take a step out onto the balcony that offers views of the Strip and Vegas valley.


The Chandelier

Grab a drink and take a photo at The Chandelier at The Cosmopolitan. It’s a three-level bar inside of a pink-purple chandelier in the middle of the hotel. A great selfie backdrop or even as an artsy photo subject by itself.


Ghostbar

Take in a complete 180-degree view of Las Vegas from Ghostbar on the 55th floor of The Palms. The Palms is off-Strip, so this gives you a unique vantage point for an Instagram pic. In addition, it has a glass-bottomed patio.

The truth is, what happens here can’t fully be captured in a few square images. But, if you manage to complete our Instagram Challenge, you’ll have an awesome weekend in Vegas (and some impressive Insta posts).
