Las Vegas is one of those rare escapes that can be visited any time of the year. There is no right time to visit per-se but there are a few factors that decide the schedule of the trip.
What makes the timing right?
There cannot be an answer as vague as any time is a good time. Here are a few considerations that narrow down the right time, for you:
- Hotel cost: If traveling didn’t come with a price tag, no one would stick in a place for over half a year. Sadly, money and budget dictates how we spend our free time. The rooms are priced at the lowest during the break between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This period also coincides with the Rodeo. The prices sky-rocket during March. March is the madness month when the best events are scheduled. Everything from NASCAR to Spring Break takes up most of the month. The prices also soar during conventions like COMDEX. As the demand increases so does the pricing. A smart way to plan a Las Vegas trip is by going through the “web specials” and “availability calendars”. Keep a maximum budget of $150 per night and look for hotel accommodation accordingly.
- Fry or Dry: Nevada is a desert, so it would be half-witted to expect the weather to be anything close to pleasant. During its hottest month, the temperature rises to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit. If you can face the sun, plan a trip during July- August: thinner crowd and cheaper stay. If you do visit during this time, sip on plenty of water. Heat stroke is a party-spoiler! During December, it gets chilly. Don’t forget to carry something warm.
