When people start to think of a big vacation like a package trip to Las Vegas, they usually want to know when is the best time of year or what is the best season to visit. With any destination around the world, there are factors that people tend to think about, the weather, the humidity, how busy it will be, and how much it will cost.
Many people think that the weather in Las Vegas is extremely dry and hot, but the truth is that the weather is very manageable and comfortable as long as you avoid visiting it in the height of summer. Visiting from March to May will make traveling around the city that much more enjoyable. Most hotels and casinos will have climate control and air conditioning, which means that no matter the weather outside, you can stay cool inside.
Sports fans who like to gamble will probably want to take a vacation to Las Vegas during February and March. These are the two most important months for American sports fans, as the Super Bowl takes place in February and the NCAA men’s basketball championship takes place in March, called March Madness. Large crowds of sports and gambling fans gather at the casinos to place bets and watch live events.
Since Las Vegas is such a popular vacation destination, it is busy most of the year, but there are a few times to visit to save some money on your vacation. Aside from Christmas and New Years, winter is calmer than the rest of the year, so you should be able to get good prices after those big events. The heyday of summer can also be calmer, so you can find some inexpensive vacations around that time of year.
Unless you are heading to Las Vegas for a specific event or holiday, there are some dates on the American calendar that mean tourist destinations are very busy. We are familiar with New Years Eve and New Years Day, Halloween, Valentine’s Day and Christmas Day, but states have some holidays that we are not so familiar with in the UK. Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday is the third Monday in January, President’s Day is the third Monday in February, Memorial Day is the last Monday in May, Independence Day is the 4th of July, Nevada is the fourth Friday in October and Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday and Friday in November.
