A Visitor's Insider Guide to Las Vegas

Updated on April 6, 2014

The Beautiful City in the Desert

As in any climate, time of year is key to knowing what you should pack. Most people come to Las Vegas either not knowing it can be chilly or not realizing just how hot it can get. Las Vegas is in the desert, meaning we can have some very hot days and very cold nights especially if your visiting in the winter. Some type of jacket should always be on your list of thing to pack.

Summer time means HOT temps that can top 115 degrees. Most people understand this and bring lots of shorts, tank tops and sundresses but if your not spending all your time outside remember that casinos are cold. It feels great at first coming off the heat on the strip but if your in there for any amount of time you will want to have a light sweater or jacket with you to put on when you go inside.

Casino gift shops make lots of money off people who were not planning on the cold nights or chilly casinos.

A couple other things many people do not know is that in the spring and fall (spring especially) it can get very windy and July and August can bring heavy rains. The winds usually will last all day for days on end. The rain, however, is usually only few hours. You do have to be careful of flooding after heaving rains. Every year people die from flash floods in the Las Vegas area so it is not something to take lightly. The good news is that for the most part, no matter what time of year you travel to Las Vegas, you can count on clear skies and good weather.

And this must be said: Girls, bring some good walking shoes - meaning athletic shoes. I have seen many a trip halted due blisters making it difficult to walk for any length of time. You will have plenty of clubs to visit at night to show off those cute high-heels.

Have Fun!

Las Vegas is fun city no matter what time of year you decide to come visit. What I want everyone that vacations here to think about is that there are many people that call this city their home. We want people to come and have fun but please do not think that anything goes here. It is upsetting to see people abuse this beautiful city, please treat it like it is your city too.
