Tourists can walk up to the sign and take photos of themselves in front of it. Sometimes Elvis impersonators will stand in front of the sign during the day to greet tourists. You could take your picture with an Elvis impersonator if one happens to be there when you visit the sign.
3. Cirque du Soleil’s “Mad Apple”
Mad Apple is the newest Las Vegas show from the legendary Cirque du Soleil production company. The show pays tribute to the wild nightlife of New York City by showcasing an impressive display of acrobatics, stunts, music, visual effects, dancers, costumes, and everything Cirque du Soleil is known to have in its shows. It is a great way to celebrate a birthday in proper New York fashion without being in New York City.

4. Pinball Hall of Fame
The Pinball Hall of Fame is a nostalgic place to visit on your birthday if you grew up playing pinball machines in the arcade when you were younger. The pinball machines date back from the 1950s to the 1990s. You may recognize some notable pinball game titles like Pacman, Wheel of Fortune, Dr. Who, and Donkey Kong.
The Pinball Hall of Fame is in a 25,000-square-foot facility with over 200 famous pinball machines. Since it is a nonprofit pinball museum, admission is free to enter the Pinball Hall of Fame. But if you want to play a pinball game, it’ll cost you a few quarters like in the good old days.
5. Visit the Mandalay Bay Resort
The Mandalay Bay Resort on the Las Vegas Strip has a manufactured white sandy beach called the Mandalay Bay Beach. It features a wave pool and lazy river aligned with palm trees, cabanas, sun loungers, and daybeds. The artificial waves allow you to surf on the aqua-blue water in the middle of the Nevada desert. What a great experience to have during a birthday trip to Las Vegas.
Stop by the Shark Reef Aquarium as you visit the Mandalay Bay Resort. The aquarium has a massive water tank exhibiting over 2,000 marine animals, such as sharks, endangered green turtles, glowing jellyfish, stingrays, piranhas, golden crocodiles, and more. You will never see an aquarium more diverse than this one.
6. Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition
How would you like to see the artifacts and architecture from the infamous Titanic shipwreck? If you have seen the Titanic movie from 1997, you may be familiar with the Grand Staircase, Promenade Deck, and sleeping quarters depicted in the film. Now, you can see these ship areas recreated in this museum dedicated to the Titanic at the Luxor Hotel.
