If you wish to enjoy your Las Vegas holidays during Christmas and New Year, you’ll have to book your flights and hotel accommodation several months in advance. Although the weather is chilly during winters from December to February, the temperatures are certainly higher than in other parts of the USA. Between March and May, the city experiences its spring with comfortable daytime temperatures and lower room rates offered by the hotels. From June to August, summer makes its presence felt in the city with scorching heat during the daytime. You’ll only find the outdoors comfortable early in the morning or after dark in this season.
Autumn from September to November is also a wonderful time to spend your holiday in this exciting American city. This is the time when the summer heat and heavy crowds of tourists begin to wane and the city experiences pleasant daytime temperatures that are ideal for outdoor activities. You’ll get the chance to explore some of the popular attractions while holidaying in the city. Among them is undoubtedly the 2.5-mile-long stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard’s central section, called ‘The Strip’. Upon taking a stroll on The Strip, you’ll get to witness some massive entertainment complexes built using attractive themes.
One of the attractions you must never miss while in Las Vegas is the Fremont Street Experience. It is a vibrant show of music and visuals that take place at a 5-block section of Fremont Street, which has a canopy of LED lights that come alive with different colours and designs. Many different street performances and entertainment acts are also performed in this outdoor area. Fremont Street is located just a few kilometres away from The Strip and can be reached within a short time by taking a taxi.
