The Best Time to Visit Las Vegas
Although it is never a bad time to visit Las Vegas the fact is that there are several factors you must consider when making the trip to Sin City. Now, the million-dollar question is just what time of the year is best to visit?
Let’s have a look at those time slots that could be the most joyful and pleasant to visit for various reasons and budgets!
Avoid Visiting in Summer
You might have seen people visit Las Vegas never during the summer months. There is a reason for that. It’s too hot there these days. The temperature reaches 41° C! At their lowest, temperatures are still uncomfortably hot. Better avoid making a travel plan to Las Vegas in summer.
March is the busiest times of the year in Las Vegas. This is the time when thousands of sports fans rush to the city to witness the NCAA Tournament. As per the estimation of the American Gaming Association, $9.2 billion was set to be wagered by Americans during the 2016 NCAA Tournament.
In Las Vegas, it’s about three things, 3Bs – basketball, betting and beers. If you are a fan of those three things you must plan a tour to Vegas for this chaotic period of the year. But if you are not a big fan of these 3Bs better to avoid at this gambling destination.
If you are single, young, and love to have your share of drink, coming to Sin City for Spring Break could be the best and worst idea you’ve ever had equally. It would be great as you will have a range of fabulous pool parties to sample at venues like Rehab, Encore Beach Club, Wet Republic, and Bare. It could be equally disgusting, as you will experience such unparalleled levels of fun and excitement that you might suffer the most creepy hangover when all the joy partying comes to an end.
New Year Visit
Although Las Vegas is known as a popular destination to celebrate New Year Eve, the reality is far less convenient than the idea itself. Of course, it is great to ring in the New Year with Elton John or Celine Dion leading the countdown to midnight, but the truth is that traveling and staying in Las Vegas over New Year is an extravagance. If you afford, you may plan it out!
If your main concern is a budget, visit the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is the best when you can find the cheapest flights and lodging as people are pre-occupied with family visits and are busy saving for the festive holidays. Still, it is worth considering that you should avoid traveling to Vegas during the 10 days that the rodeo is taking place as the natives can get a little busy when that rolls into town and things can get hasty for those few days.
When To Go?
Although visiting Las Vegas is a subjective issue, you need to consider so many things including your budget, time and personal needs. To get the most out of this trip, you need to avoid going there when it is too hot, too expensive, and too busy.
Consider your motive of the trip, check dates of big events or price implications and just prepare as well as you can.
