Best Time to Visit

Best Time to Visit

Las Vegas is not only known for its casinos and its entertainment but also for its extremely hot weather — the city is smack in the middle of the desert after all. The best time to visit the city is in autumn, from September to November, and in spring, from March to May, when the temperatures are around 70–77 F (20-25). During the winter time, the amount of tourists is great, especially during the holidays, so do try to plan a mid-week trip, as both the plane tickets and hotel prices are significantly lower in comparison to the weekend.

FAQ

FAQ

– What's the cheapest month to go to Vegas? You are most likely to find cheap flights and hotel deals in Las Vegas in January. August and October are also worth checking. To stay within budget avoid travelling during major holidays such as Valentine's Day and New Year’s. – What is the 20 dollar trick in Vegas? The so-called 20 dollar trick is an attempt to get a room upgrade by slipping a $20 to the hotel receptionist when you give them your credit card and ID. There is no certainty that this will workout but being extra nice and tipping may well lead to some perks. – Does Vegas get cold at night? Some may find it counterintuitive, but deserts can get pretty cold at night. While from July to August the temperature rarely dips below 70 F (21 C), on about half of winter nights the temperature does drop below 40 F (4 C). – What should I avoid in Las Vegas? When in Vegas, avoid wearing uncomfortable shoes. Remember to stay hydrated. ATMs at casinos usually have high withdrawal fees, so get your cash elsewhere. Tip well for better service. – Are drinks still free in Vegas? You can order almost any type of drink for free when gambling on the casino floor in Las Vegas. Most casinos have a limit of two drinks per person per order — be that fruit juice or shots. Drinks may be free, but remember to leave a tip. $1-2 per drink is customary. – Is Las Vegas safe for a single woman? Las Vegas is as safe as any other big city where people consume alcohol. As a solo traveler, it’s a good idea to stick to the well-lit tourist areas. Use the same common-sense safety practices as anywhere else in the world: mind your drinks, don't go to private places with new friends, and if you do — make sure someone you trust knows where you are and with whom. – How to get around in Las Vegas? Obviously, car is king, but renting your own vehicle might not be the most practical option. The best way to get around Las Vegas is by taxi, a ride-hailing option like Uber or Lyft. The cheapest option is to take a municipal bus, but it’s also the slowest option.

Public Transport

Public Transport

Sidewalks are always packed, during both day and night but the well-lit streets and elevated crossovers make it safe and easy to traverse the busy Las Vegas Boulevard. The Strip is divided into three sections, and if you want to visit another casino in the same area, walking is certainly the best option. If you wish to navigate from the South Strip to the North Strip, however, you will need to take a taxi, private car or bus. RTC Buses is run by the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). The Bonneville Transit Center is the transfer point for many routes; while most routes cost around $2 or $1, you can also buy a 24-hours pass for $8. Launched July 2004, the Monorail has stations at Sahara’s, Las Vegas Hilton, Harrah's/Imperial Palace, Bally’s, Paris and the MGM Grand. The first station of the Monorail is the SLS station, where also tickets can be purchased.

Player’s Cards

Player’s Cards

Every casino will offer a Player's Card, that can be purchased free of charge after a short application of about 5 minutes, but you will need a driver's license or another form of identification. Every time you play a slot machine, insert the card into the appropriate slot so that it will track the amount of play: the longer you play, the more credits you will receive. You can also get credit on your card for table games, so do simply hand the card to the dealers, and they will add credits depending on the amount of your play. Your credits accumulate and they can be used for small gifts, free meals and even free nights at a hotel — even penny slots gather quite a few credits. Some cards cover multiple casinos, and you can use it at any venue listed on the card. Do not worry about losing your card, as all the information is stored centrally and the staff will gladly issue you a new card free of charge.
