For the Gambler or the Tourist, These Are the Best Times of the Year to Visit Las Vegas
Las Vegas has something for everyone, not just for gamblers. The key is to know when to go. Sometimes are better than other, whether you want to go on a budget, just gamble, party to the hilt, or check out conventions.
For the budget minded, off- season is the way to go if you want to save money. Las Vegas doesn’t have a distinct off-season, but it does have off-peak periods. Those off-peak periods are weeks following holidays, the middle of the summer, and January to early February. The weeks following holidays still allow you to do and see everything in Las Vegas, but without the crowds and higher hotel prices. You can still visit Las Vegas in the summer comfortably as long as you stay inside. You can even relax at your hotel and connect to the internet to play Pkv games. Visiting Las Vegas during January to early February, however, does not allow you to take in shows. Entertainment typically goes on hiatus during that time period.
Everyday in Las Vegas is a day for gamblers, but there are times of the year when the gambling is much more exciting. Two times in particular are Super Bowl Sunday and the NCAA Basketball Men’s Final Four Tournament. You can go to any casino to watch the games, but you probably will not find a place to sit may not be able to eat while you watch the game. For those who do not want to stand and watch, check out some of the many clubs and restaurants throughout the city, as most will host game day parties. These parties will be announced a few months in advance of the event, so you should have an opportunity to purchase tickets or secure reservations before you arrive in Las Vegas.
Vegas certainly knows how to party, and the time to go for the ultimate party in New Year’s Eve. Plan to but you hotel and flight months in advance, since this is one of the most popular and priciest times to visit. All the hottest entertainers are here, and they have fireworks and parties galore. When it gets close to December in the year you plan to travel, check out websites such as www.vegas.com for tickets and more details about special events.
The International Consumer Electronics Show held January 8-11, 2009, is the time for gadget enthusiasts to visit Las Vegas. All the hottest new electronics are unveiled at this trade show, though you may not be able to purchase them at the show. Visit the CES website closer to January 2009 to find out about exhibits and even to make travel arrangements. You can also take some time out to gamble or see a show, but who would want to do that?
