Las Vegas is a city with an interesting color palette. From the bluish-pink mountains that surround Lake Mead, to the neon signs that decorate downtown Las Vegas, and the reddish, other-worldly peaks that make up Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire.
Here are some places around town that will give you the perfect backdrop for your next Instagram post:
The little café located in Summerlin is the perfect place for a business lunch, brunch with friends, or for an artisan latte, like their Vanilla Rose Tea Latte or Donut Frappe. It’s pretty busy throughout the day so if you get a chance to sit in front of the gorgeous rose wall, be sure to document it on your Instagram feed.
Donut Bar LV
This donut shop in downtown Las Vegas comes up with some of the most creative pastries you’ll find around the city. They’re open seven days a week (they open at 7 am on weekdays, 8am on weekends) and stay open until they run out of donuts for the day. Take a selfie underneath the Donut Bar sign or get a passerby to take your picture in front of the donut with wings.
Fremont Street Experience
Fremont Street is easily one of the most popular tourist attractions in Las Vegas, second perhaps only to the Bellagio Fountains on the Strip. You can find plenty of great places to take pictures all along Fremont Street, whether it’s under the Fremont East District sign, with the celebrity impersonators or under one of the many murals you’ll find on the restaurants and bars.
The Arts District
Thanks to the Renaissance of sorts that has taken place over the last few years, downtown Las Vegas has become much more colorful. You can find all sorts of walls to decorate your feed with; from the rooster wall around the corner from Donut Bar, to The Sleeping Knight, to pretty much any wall you can find up and down Ogden Street.
Travel bloggers can’t come to Las Vegas and at least attempt to see Hoover Dam. Hoover Dam is not only an impressive feat of architecture, but the views from the top of the dam are awe-inspiring. You’ll have to drive for about an hour to get to the Hoover Dam, but you’ll leave with some interesting and unique landscapes in your camera roll.
For a special view of the Las Vegas Strip, look no further than the Eiffel Tower at the Paris. It’s only half the size of the original in Paris, but you get an awe-inspiring view of the Strip and a free light show when you make it to the top.

T Mobile Stadium
This is the place to go during hockey season. There’s lots of shows that take place throughout the year inside the stadium, but the best time of year to snap a photo in front of this beast is when the Golden Knights are playing a home again.

Thank you to our @vegasgoldenknights for another memorable ride in 2018-19, and thank you to every hockey fan who joined us at T-Mobile Arena throughout the season, continuing to help create the best game day atmosphere in the NHL! See you all again soon. #VegasBorn (📸: @powersimagery // T-Mobile Arena)
Nelson’s Ghost Town
If you want to take some unique engagement of wedding photos, consider Nelson’s Landing. It’s a bit of a drive to get there – about an hour away from the Las Vegas Strip – but it’s worth it. You’ll get a peak into what Nevada once was, and get some interesting photos in the process.
