When Is The Best Time Of Year To Travel To Las Vegas?

When people find out that I am an avid fan of Las Vegas, many come up with questions about my favorite city in the world. One of the most popular questions that I get is, "When is the best time of year to travel to Las Vegas?" To answer this question fully, it is best to state when the best and worst times are to go to Las Vegas.

Worst Times to travel to Las Vegas:

If you are looking to spend less money for your trip to Las Vegas, you need to take the busiest times of the year into consideration. With this aspect, the first thing that you have to consider is when more people will be in Las Vegas. The more people that the casinos will have to cater to, on average, is when the prices skyrocket for rooms.

First off, do not even consider going to Las Vegas for New Years, Easter, the Forth of July, or Christmas. Most of the casinos give rooms to their high-rollers for these times of year. The waiting lists for rooms that are not given away usually start a year ahead of time.

Secondly, you are not going to want to go to Las Vegas during one of the big conventions since many of the rooms are taken, and the prices for rooms go up considerable. how do you know when the big conventions are going to be? One of the best spots to find this information would be on the website, A2ZLasVegas.com. When looking at the list, make sure that you do not go during any of the conventions that will cater to more then 100, 000 visitors.

Next, if you travel to Las Vegas during the weekend, you will pay anywhere from 20%-40% more for a room. The majority of visitors travel to Las Vegas on Friday night and go home on Sunday. The casinos know this, and change their cost scale for rooms to reflect this.

I have been to Las Vegas during the hottest times of the summer, and will never do it again. It is not easy to walk from casino to casino in Las Vegas when the temperature is well over 100 degrees. You will also hear on the local new in Las Vegas about a higher number of people in the hospitals during these times. Since a person can walk down the Las Vegas Strip with an open intoxicant, many more people suffer from heat-related issues. It may be a dry heat, but it still stinks.

so, you know that you do not want to travel to Las Vegas on a major holiday, the weekend, during a major convention, or during the hottest times of the year. I know that you are asking, "Is there much time left?" My answer is that there is plenty of time left. In that time, you will find the best times to travel to Las Vegas.

Best Times to Travel to Las Vegas:

If you are looking for the best weather in Las Vegas, there are a few really good times of the year to go. I will usually suggest traveling to Las Vegas in the late Spring or mid-Fall. The weather is the most balanced in Las Vegas during these times of the year. It will be warm in the daytime, but not blistering hot. In the evening, it will be cool, but manageable.

With the times that I have been in Las Vegas, I have yet to travel there during the weekend. I usually suggest getting there on Monday or Tuesday, and leaving on a Thursday or Friday. This way you will have the lowest fares during the week. This saved money can go a long way on your Las Vegas Trip.

The days just after a major holiday will usually see a plummet in the price of a room in Las Vegas. There are many people that will wait for these times of the year to travel to Sin City. Not only will many of the casinos lower their rates, many of the restaurants will lower their prices as well to bring in the lower number of visitors that are in the city at the time.

It has been proven over and over again that the slowest time of year in Las Vegas is the first few weeks in December. Many people try to save up money during that time of year to make sure that they have all of the money that they want to spend on holiday gifts. This is the time of year when the rates will be the lowest during the year.

Many casinos will send out emails inviting their favorite gamblers to Las Vegas during the slow times of the year. If you have yourself on the email list of the major casinos, you are sure to receive an offer in your email box at some time of the year that you cannot refuse. It is easy to get on the email list. All you have to do is make sure that you sign up for the list on the casino's website of your choice.

I hope that this article has helped to settle your mind on when your next rip to Las Vegas will be. One final tip that I can leave you with is that many of the casinos are currently giving wild deals that they would not have in the past. Since the country is in a recession, the casinos are beginning to hurt for business. Take a look, you might be surprised at what you will find.
