Anytime is a good time to visit Las Vegas, especially if you plan to spend most of your time gambling, dining at Las Vegas restaurants, clubbing, going to shows, or other indoor Las Vegas activities. You can certainly go anytime if you plan to take full advantage of everything your Las Vegas hotel has to offer such as swimming pools, spas, lounges, restaurants, special attractions, thrill rides, shopping, and more. If you plan to spend a significant amount of time enjoying the great outdoors, the best times to go are spring and fall when temperatures rarely reach more than 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
