It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.
When to go to Las Vegas
Peak Season: November to April; Holiday WeeksVegas draws crowds and conventions throughout the year, but the weather is generally cool and comfortable from fall through spring. The take away? Always book ahead and watch out for some of Vegas’ busiest weekends surrounding holidays like New Year’s Eve or events like the Consumer Electronics Show, Super Bowl, or National Finals Rodeo.
Off Season: June to SeptemberThere is no such thing as a “low season” in Vegas, but these are arguably the slowest, most discount-friendly months. Temperatures in the high 90s and low hundreds could broil a USDA prime Porterhouse on the sidewalk, making Strip walking particularly uncomfortable, though the casinos are air-conditioned to the hilt.
Sweet Spot: May; October to early NovemberBarring no special events, you’ll get the best bang for your buck by visiting in May, October, and early November, months that offer mild temperatures and generally better rates.
