Las Vegas Trip Tips - Las Vegas Weather, How to Pack for a Vegas Trip

What to Pack

Las Vegas is in the middle of the desert, as a result it's hot as hell during the late spring and summer months. Fall and Winter however are quite cool, even chilly at night. If visiting in winter or late fall, bring a sweater - yeah... its cold outside. Evenings during the spring can also be a bit chilly on occasion, so make sure you pack something with long sleeves.

Summer days and evenings can be deathly hot (it chills down late at night) so light clothes are a must. Bring a swim suit and definitely sun glasses, oversized beach towel, a large hat or sombrero, and quality sunblock if you're planning on spending anytime whatsoever outside either at a bar, walking the strip or at the pool.

For summer - wear loose fitting bright colored clothing, sunblock, shades and a sombrero for daytime strip hikes
If it's really hot (or cold) outside - DON'T GO OUTSIDE!


Stop off at a local drugstore/supermarket before you check in and grab some homebase essentials (it's way cheaper to pay the cab to wait than to get rooked at the casino gift shop):

- Water (One big bottle, and some smaller carry-around sizes)
- Soft Drinks/Juices (don't play mercy to the slots)
- Nuts, Dried Fruit, Trail Mix, Jerky (compact, portable protein)
- Candy/Sweets (just cause)
- Crackers/Pretzels/Chips (sop up a little late night booze)
- Candles for some late night romance ambience
- A bottle of your favorite tipple and mixer
- Condoms (Jesus was an optimist)
- Extra batteries for your digital camera
- A Good Book or Magazine (during tubtime or downtime)
- Laptop (most hotels offer wifi)
- Dice/Cards and a book on gaming rules/strategy
- Your favorite teddy bear in case you get beat bad at the casino
- Some swanky duds and/or a sexy cocktail dress in case you get married
