But it’s not all about the weather, is it?
What about clothing? What should you wear?
The number one question we get asked is this:
What do I need to pack for my trip to Las Vegas?
Vegas doesn’t have a dress code as such. The most important thing is that you dress comfortably. The climate is desert-like and that means long hot days and cooler nights. If you are planning to hit the Casinos (why else would you come to Vegas?) then be aware that most are air-conditioned and are set to 60°F / 15°C during the summer so dress accordingly. Most people visitors and locals alike, dress casually and the Casinos don’t have a dress code – so long as you are wearing a shirt and shoes.
What about winter?
If you visit Las Vegas over the winter months, make sure to bring long pants, a jacket and sweaters, as the weather is noticeably cooler.
And the Summer?
In the summer months, the commonest form of dress is casual t-shirts, shorts and tennis shoes/trainers – and don’t forget your swimsuit! The restaurants and shows may have cress codes although this will differ from one to another – pack at least one set of dress clothes, just be sure, and do check before you visit a restaurant or show what their dress code is.
The most important item of clothing? Comfortable shoes – there’s a lot of ground to cover over all those Casinos!
Nevada is a Spanish word that literally translates to “snow-covered”. It is, in fact, the driest US state, seeing an average of just 7-inches of rainfall per year.
