Let’s be realistic for a moment. One of the reasons people visit Las Vegas is certainly not because of the climate. However, there is more to the city than just stopping there for a night while cruising through the US Southwest. In fact, there are reasons to visit there during all four seasons of the year, depending on your preferences. Most of us are familiar with Las Vegas for 2 reasons. First and foremost, it’s the gambling Mecca of the West and second, it’s located in the heart of the Mojave Desert.
The fact that Las Vegas is located at an elevation of 2,000 feet combined with the desert climate means two things; it never gets too cold and it rarely rains. So, let’s take a look at the four seasons of Las Vegas:
• Winter in Las Vegas – wintertime here debunks the notion that it never cools down in Las Vegas. Believe it or not, it can get pretty cold here. But don’t expect to see a White Christmas when visiting Las Vegas during the winter. December and January temps typically drop between 20° and 30°. However, the cooler winters are often short-lived as the temperatures start to rise in March.
• Summer in Las Vegas – the least favorable months to visit Vegas is June through September. That shouldn’t come as a surprise when you consider the daytime temps rarely drop below triple digits. Fortunately, it’s a very dry climate with humidity levels rarely exceeding the 10% mark. The advantages for tourists this time of year the indoor air-conditioned attractions.
• Fall in Las Vegas – if you want to visit Las Vegas but don’t want to feel the heat, you should seriously consider visiting in October or November. You won’t find the colorful New England fall foliage, but you’ll definitely enjoy the cooler temperatures. As winter draws closer the nights get colder making it ideal for visitors who love being outside and not cooped up in a hotel or motel room.
• Spring in Las Vegas – March through May (springtime) is the best season for visiting Las Vegas. The days gradually warm up but don’t get too hot. However, the deeper you get into May it becomes even more apparent that summer is just around the corner. Furthermore, this is the best time to visit surrounding areas such as Red Rock Canyon and other places of attraction.
