Best Time to Visit Las Vegas

Best Time to Visit Las Vegas

One of the questions that we are asked more than many others on social media is people wanting to know the best time to visit Las Vegas. The tricky part is that the answer comes down to what people are looking to do while they are visiting Las Vegas because for people looking to hang out at a fantastic pool with sandy beach entry like the one at Tahiti Village is entirely different than someone looking for lower rates to come to town and see shows and enjoy some of the fantastic fine dining options in town. In this post, we will try to cover the many different types of visitors and what likely works the best for them. If you feel that we missed something, please let us know in the comments, and we will be sure to come back and add it to this post.

Average Temperatures in Las Vegas

Being a desert city, the temperatures in Las Vegas can swing more than 30 degrees in a day from the lows to the highs. Depending on the time of year, that may mean you need to start the day in a light jacket or a sweater, and by the afternoon, you are comfortably lounging by the pool. This chart will help give you a range of what to expect by month, including precipitation.

Las Vegas Average Temperatures
*Source – US Climate Data

You may be wondering what caused that spike in July. In Las Vegas, we have a summer monsoon season that can cause afternoon thunderstorms to flare up over parts of the valley. While the rain can be an inconvenience for some, many others enjoy watching the lightning from a distance at night since most of the storms get hung on the mountains surrounding the city.

Best Time for Lounging By the Pool in Las Vegas

This is a 2 part question unless you are a fan of the summer heat. The pool season officially kicks off in Las Vegas in mid-March at most properties, though at Tahiti Village, we keep the pool and lazy river heated in the winter so guests can enjoy them all year long.

For visitors looking to spend their entire day & afternoon lounging in the sun, swimming, and enjoying a refreshing drink, we recommend late March through late May and late August through early October. This gives you the best chance to arrive at the pool when it opens and be comfortable all day while you soak up some sun. Just be sure to wear sunscreen to keep from getting burned. Even in cooler temperatures, the UV index in Las Vegas will still cause sunburns.

If you love the heat and the action, then mid-summer months are perfect for you! The pools are busy, the music is on, and the summer pool party vibe is in full swing all across the city. While temperatures will typically be over 100 degrees for a high every day from July through August, the vibes by the pool are also going to be the highest. Just wear some sandals when walking around the pools because the pool deck will be hot.

Best Time for Outdoor Adventures around Las Vegas

Many people looking for desert adventures will stay away from the hot summer months for safety reasons, which is certainly understandable. While short hikes can be safer options, avoiding the summer heat is a good idea if you want something more extreme. For rock climbers looking to climb the longer routes, the season typically starts in November and can run through late March if the weather cooperates.

Top Of MysterZ Red Rock

The winter is typically also the busiest time of the year for the Red Rock Scenic loop drive. In 2020 the park began a reservation system to limit the number of people entering the park at any given hour the gates are open. Because of this, we highly recommend reserving your entry time in advance before you depart for your adventure!

Many national parks are within a 3-4 hour drive of Las Vegas that will give you some of Mother Nature’s most scenic views. Death Valley, Zion National Park, and the Valley of Fire are popular day trip destinations for people looking to see some of the most picturesque views that the Southwestern US offers. If the Grand Canyon is on your bucket list, you can reach the south rim in only 2.5 hours from Las Vegas. If you want to experience the Sky Walk, you’ll want to plan and get your tickets before you leave Las Vegas to make sure your spot is reserved because this is one of the most popular ways for people to see the Grand Canyon.

Best Time to Visit Las Vegas for Nightlife

The nightclubs in Las Vegas will always be when the city is the busiest. For visitors looking for the best nightclub experience, the Summer & Fall seasons will be the best time to visit. There are enough nightclubs on the strip to warrant their post but always plan by reaching out to promoters or looking for online VIP access.

Shows in Las Vegas operate all year long, so you can easily see any of them regardless of the time of year you visit. If you are shopping for a deal, we recommend coming between December and February for the best chances that some shows will offer discounts on show tickets, especially at the TKTS booths located up and down the Las Vegas strip. You’ll also have an easier time getting dinner reservations to those hot restaurants that you have wanted to check out.

It’s Always a Good Time for Las Vegas

No matter what you are looking to get out of your vacation, Las Vegas has you covered. Depending on what you are looking for, some different resorts and locations will suit your needs. Fremont Street may be the perfect spot for you if you are looking for a never-ending party, especially with the newly opened Circa Las Vegas. For the more modern approach, with all of the lavish amenities, the strip is always open and ready to help you have the vacation of a lifetime. If you want to set up a home base in a quieter off-strip hotel but still be close enough to the action to get there quickly and easily, then check out the rates we have for Tahiti Village.

Las Vegas Is Waiting For You

Las Vegas is bouncing back, and shows are starting to re-open. Occupancy rates for hotels and casinos are on the rise. Restaurants are seeing reservations picking up quickly and regularly having wait times during peak dining hours. Other attractions and entertainment options in the city have increased to 80% by the state Government, and the city is aiming for 100% occupancy rates in early June. All of this means that Vegas is back and ready for your next vacation!

Are you Ready to Come Back?
Join the trend of increasing passenger traffic coming through McCarren Airport. According to their latest data, just over 2.9 million passengers arrived at their terminals in the month of March 2021. That’s up from 2.1 million in March. As airlines begin to adjust their rates, you’ll likely save money by booking your flights sooner rather than later. Airport traffic is always a great indicator of the interest in Vegas, and we love to see things returning to normal.

The Intermission is Over!
Shows like Absinthe and Atomic Saloon Show, by Speigelworld, are now open Wednesday – Sundays, offering safe seating pods. Speigelworld is also diligently working to re-open, Opium, so their trio of wildly popular shows will be here to entertain you during your next vacation. Their shows are perfect for people looking for something a little off-kilter and edgy in the evenings.

If you prefer the acrobatics and theatrics of Cirque de Soleil, you’ll be able to see Mystère and O in person again soon. Mystère will re-open at TI on June 28th, and just three days later, on July 1st, O is back in business at Bellagio. Cirque shows have been closed since the initial shutdown in March of 2020.

Other shows like David Copperfield, Blue Man Group, and Jabbawockeez have been open and operating for some time now as well. The entertainers and their fantastic support staff have been eagerly waiting for the chance to bring their craft back to the stage, and the time is finally here. Remember that you can get tickets to these great shows and more from our concierge desk during your stay!

Getting around the strip just got easier because, on May 11th, the Las Vegas Monorail started running again. Now visitors can quickly get between all of the stops on the East side of the strip and get to their next destination as fast as possible. Remember that you can buy day passes to the monorail to save some money and get around quickly all day long!

What’s New at Tahiti Village?
At Tahiti Village, we are working hard to ensure that the rooms, sand entry pool, lazy river, and other amenities are clean and ready for you to make us your home base for your next Las Vegas vacation. We continue to follow the strictest CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing our resort. Our team is working on new onsite activities for guests of all ages to enjoy during their stay, be on the lookout for more details. Also, we have recently been able to open our hot tubs again, which we know many guests will be excited for!

Outdoor Hot Tub Las Vegas

If you haven’t stayed with us recently, you have yet to experience Arturo’s Village Pizza, which recently won the Best of Las Vegas Bronze for Best Pizza in Las Vegas. Be sure to grab a few slices or even a whole pie for the family when you stay with us in the future!

Pizza Las Vegas Arturo's

To keep the tropical vibe strong, the Luau is back in business and better than ever. We have spent the last year looking at ways to make the Luau more immersive, and you’re going to LOVE the changes that we have made. The event space has had a cover added to it to help block out the sun during the early part of the show, and for those arriving early, the new experiences are sure to keep you entertained before the main show.

And if you needed more of a reason to visit us, Mermaid Mondays are back and better than ever! CaySea the Mermaid is upping her showing this year. We will also be offering “Swim with the Fin” classes for children to learn to swim with their own fins! For little girls, they learn to swim in mermaid tails, and little boys will get shark fins. This kind of experience is something your children will remember for years to come!

When you stay with us for your vacation, our goal is to make it your best vacation yet to feel like you are part of the Tahiti Village family. We hope to see you soon.

5 Ways to Relax and Restore with a Staycation

Staycations are pretty trendy these days as people are looking to re-explore where they live with COVID restrictions easing. Some people say a self-care staycation is just as relaxing as taking off to a spa as it refreshes and recharges you. Others say that their families have as much fun bonding over backyard adventures as they do exploring theme parks and museums.

Did you put off last year’s vacation due to the pandemic? You’re not alone! Travel Pulse reports that travel was down nearly 75 percent in 2020. If you need to kick off the new year with some R&R, a staycation could be the answer to your pandemic prayers. Here are five ways a staycation can help you relax, rest, and restore.

staycation hanging loungers

Use the amenities at a local spa.

No self-care staycation would be complete without a hot tub soak, sauna, or massage — all of which are hard to do with COVID-19 around. However, it’s not impossible. Many spas and resorts are offering services that adhere to the CDC guidelines for safety.

For example, the Mahana Spa at Tahiti Village is a leader in safe and comfortable mind-body wellness. Guests in the hotel can rest easy knowing that rooms, restaurants, and amenities are all thoughtfully cleaned and prepped to keep each and every guest safe.

Dress the part.

Most people enjoy snagging a few new outfits for a special vacation, and a staycation should be no different. Inner and outerwear like a bra that is comfortable and stylish is perfect for the staycationer who wants to look good on the couch or out on the town. Leisurewear can help you relax while you binge-watch Netflix or keep you warm as you explore the great outdoors.

Take a drive.

So few of us take the time to see the interesting sights the city you live in has to offer. You can drive through the areas you know, but why not go beyond? From your car, you can explore your city’s unique architecture and history or get lost in nature on winding country roads. Plus, you can add a self-care element to a nice drive by listening to self-help podcasts, new albums from your favorite artists, or audiobooks to help you cultivate positivity and gratitude.

Go on a food tour.

Even though the pandemic has many restaurants closing their indoor dining, most have begun offering delivery and curbside pickup, as well as comfortable, socially-distant outdoor dining. Take a food tour — not only will this culinary exploration ignite your taste buds, but in the comfort of your own home or hotel room, you don’t have to worry about catching or spreading illness.

Tour museums virtually.

Now you don’t have to be in Paris to explore the Louvre or in Mexico to experience the National Museum of Archeology. Dozens of elite museums across the globe are keeping their doors open virtually — the perfect adventure for a staycation. In addition, several are also offering online classes and programming to complement online tours. Creation is a powerful way to embody self-care, from painting to crafting, so visit a virtual museum or take an online art course during your time off time at home.

Staycations were increasing in popularity long before the COVID-19 crisis. What kinds of staycations does your family enjoy? Adventure, relaxation, self-care — these vacations may seem out of reach with the pandemic, but with a little creative thinking, you can travel the world from your home.

Tahiti Village indulges Las Vegas visitors in self-care vacations that relax the body and rejuvenate the mind. Get in touch to book your vacation today. (855) 386-4658
