Las Vegas, Nevada Vacation Travel

More About Las Vegas - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
Las Vegas hotels and shows are predictably full on most weekends and holidays, but mid week can also be packed whenever there is a major convention in town. Check with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Website for convention schedules. Spring and fall seasons are comfortable for outdoor activities. Summers can be unbearably hot, yet dry. Bring a warm jacket in the winter, the desert can get surprising cold in the evenings.

Where to stay?
Las Vegas hotels and casinos are concentrated in two areas: The Strip and Downtown. The Strip is undeniably the place to be, with all the newest and splashiest hotels and attractions. The southern and central sections of the Strip also feature an excellent monorail and network of pedestrian walkways, so you do not need a car. Room rates fluctuate widely depending on demand, so expect to pay more when there is a convention in town.

What to do?
The hotels themselves are a main attraction in Las Vegas. Plan to spend at least one evening walking The Strip, soaking up the spectacle of theme architecture, light and water shows, and free exhibits. The popular stage shows sell out early, so reserve tickets before you arrive. If you burn-out on The Strip, an excursion to Hoover Dam is a great way to get sunshine and fresh air.
