When to Go

For the most part, the Vegas climate's bark is worse than its bite. Sure, summer highs exceed 100°F, but with low humidity and ever-present air-conditioning, you can stay comfortable as long as you have water on hand and limit your time outside to short intervals. Even in the hottest months (late June through September) you can bear the heat, provided you stay hydrated and don't try to walk too far. Luckily, with more than 300 days of sunshine a year, the chances of a rain-out are slim.

On the other hand, nights can be chilly between late fall and early spring, so bring a sweater or windbreaker for your evening strolls beneath the neon-bathed skies.

Las Vegas doesn't have a high or low season by the standard definition, but you'll find it least crowded between November and January. Hotels are at their fullest July through October. Specific events—New Year's Eve, spring break, major conventions, sporting events—draw big crowds, so plan accordingly.
