Travel Thursday – Las Vegas

Las Vegas

My second United States destination is another one of those places that I think everyone should visit at least once. This week I’m featuring Las Vegas!

While there is plenty to do during the day, nothing beats the way this city is lit up at nighttime. Even if you do not gamble, there is so much fun and excitement when you visit any Las Vegas casino. The exhilarating atmosphere is contagious. It is hard to not get swept away here!

Viva Las Vegas!

Things to Know About Visiting Vegas

First off, during the summer months (June – August) it is insanely hot in Las Vegas. I went for one of my birthdays in early June, and I thought I was going to melt the entire time. People always say the dry heat is better than our humidity here in North Carolina, but it was still way too hot for my taste! My curly hair did tame down with their dry heat though!

If you do not want to melt, I recommend visiting sometime between October and March. However, keep in mind even though a November day there is in the 70’s at night it gets down to the 30’s.

Secondly, pretty much everything you want to do is packed onto that one strip. Do not let that deceive you though, it is still spaced out… and in their summer heat walking is not doable for far!

Lastly, plan enough time into the trip to venture out of Vegas and see the Grand Canyon. This is something we didn’t get to do on my trip there as we were just in town for a long weekend. We did fly over it though, and even from high up it was very impressive! I hope to make it back to the area merely to see the Grand Canyon!

Things to Do in Vegas

Even though everything is packed into approximately 4.2 miles at The Strip, there are still so many things to do in this city.

Here are a few of the top things to do, see, and experience.

While this list might seem short it honestly could take over a week really touring all these places!

Be ready to head back to Europe in next week’s Travel Thursday blog on Cologne, Germany.
