When to Visit Vegas
I’m here to answer the question: when is the best time of year to visit Las Vegas. If you’re anything like me, the answer is any time because I love the sin city. If you’re looking to enjoy the many different pools that reflect their hotel's personality, you’ll want to go from March to the early November. Although Las Vegas seems like it’s warm all year round, most of the pools close in the winter. A spring, summer or fall day at the Mandalay Bay Beach with actual sand or the Cosmopolitan pool that overlooks the strip cannot be beat. During the weekend the pools are especially lively and some even have day clubs to get your party started early. Summer in the desert of Las Vegas can get extremely hot. Average daily temperatures from June through August are over 100 degrees. If you can handle the heat, you’re most likely to get the best deals Vegas has to offer.
The addition of the NFL team the Las Vegas Raiders and the NHL Vegas Golden Knights make September through April a great reason to watch live professional sports. The stadiums are right in the heart of the action and even if you don’t have a ticket, the city has plenty of options to join in on the fun like the Bud Light Beer Garden near Mandalay Bay and the Luxor hotels. Not to mention you’ll be able to bet on the Packers winning the Super Bowl and win lots of money.
November through February is a great time to visit and see the hotels’ holiday displays. The Bellagio lobby is magnificently decorated for Thanksgiving, a giant Christmas tree lights up the night outside of the Venetian, and the Aria puts up a beautiful display for Chinese New Year.
I think the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament is best watched at a Sports Book in Vegas. With tens of TVs turned on to only sports, you can catch all of the games at once! The biggest Sports Book can be found at the new adults-only downtown Vegas hotel, Circa.
Throughout the year, Allegiant airlines has nonstop flights from Appleton to Las Vegas to get you to all the action quickly. No matter what time of year you go to Las Vegas, be prepared to have a good time.
