History of a mobster

This plaque is at the Flamingo where Bugsy Siegel had his Presidential Suite. Look for the Flamingos all around.

Past the circular fountain and in front of the wedding chapel is a walkway to the stone with the plaque about Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel. No- he didn’t invent The Strip, but the publicity certainly did propel talk of the town.

Tucked into the flamingo habitat at The Flamingo, this monument was located across from the garden chapel. For history buffs, it's an awesome touchstone tucked away on the strip.

This is a nice hidden gem off the Strip that is quiet and gives a secluded feeling. Not necessarily the easiest to find so ask any Flamingo Hilton employee. It a very picturesque place right by the Flamingo's wedding chapel so it gets few visitors, mostly just wedding parties taking pictures. Fun Fact: the memorial plaque is supposed to be... More

We were walking around the casino and noticed the flamingos outside. We went to go check them out and came across the plaque. It was an interesting read. I had heard of Bugsy Siegel but had no idea that he was the man behind the Flamingo Hotel. Pretty cool.

If you're at the hotel or casino, the walk through the habitat can be a peaceful break and you can visit a spot loaded with Vegas strip history.

This plaque is located in the Flamingo Habitat. If you want to go further back in history about Benjamin Siegel visit the El Cortez Hotel Casino in Downtown Las Vegas. That is were Siegel started in Las Vegas - before he built the Flamingo. Also, check out the Mob Museum also located Downtown.
