There is not really a perfect time to visit Las Vegas. Given that most of the visitors spend the majority of time indoors, you can visit during any season. There are many activities in Las Vegas that run year round because of the beautiful weather. Most people find the summer months in Las Vegas to be unbearable because of the heat and will only partake in indoor activities. The heat causes people to choose vacation dates in the winter months between December and February, but the city is more crowded, and you should expect higher room rates. Spring months between March and May as well as Autumn months of September through November, therefore tend to be the recommendation. Visiting at these times means fewer crowds and the weather is not so severe and you can enjoy some outdoor attractions and activities too.

Las Vegas always has plenty to see and do so there is never a wrong time to visit. Mid-week trips are recommended to avoid the hustle of the weekend rushes. The fewer crowds there are, the cheaper your rates will be too. If you are going to the parties, then the biggest and best events are typically held in March. If you plan to see the Grand Canyon during your stay, then schedule a spring or fall visit. Camping season starts in September, so plan accordingly if you are looking to enjoy the outdoors rather than the indoors.
