Hi From Amy In Vegas! – I’m newsletter Assistant Editor Amy Rayner-Cooley. Busy times here in Las Vegas. Last weekend was another big sports weekend with the big UFC 229 fight, Khabib vs. McGregor. Wow, what an ending! Crazy even by Vegas standards. VGK tickets continue to be super-hot.

This Issue’s Comped Insider Tip – Every issue, we’re going to comp you one tip from the couple-of-hundred neatly organized for our paid members. Every issue, Publisher (and 25 year Las Vegas Expert) Ted Newkirk gives “must know” tips which will properly prep you for your next visit. Whether that is 3 weeks away, 3 months away, or “not yet sure when” away.
As we get into fall, I’d like to take a minute to remind you we’re looking at our four “coldest” months of the year. (Make sure to read this even if you are not visiting during this stretch as I have some Pro Tips that are good for other times of the year as well). Unlike some other areas where fall cools off and then the real cold hits in January and February, our dip generally follows a pattern of bottoming out right around Christmas and New Years. Temperatures have hovered right around freezing the past two New Years Eve’s. The past two years, we’ve had a number of December days that dipped into the 20’s F.
The average highs are as follows: November 66F, December 57F, January 58F, and February 62F. BUT (sound of screeching tires), keep in mind that our desert weather is drastic and dramatic. In Florida, a high of 65 might mean a low of 50 or 55. However, with the short winter days and clear desert nights (no cloud cover to hold in the heat), the temperature drops dramatically once the sun below the western mountains.
What does this mean to you during your visit the next four months? You can probably leave the swimsuit at home. Even if you want to brave the chilly weather (and our desert breezes), only a few hotels have pools which are open all year around. We’re not listing them because they are subject to change, but if you are coming and still want to possibly take a dip, CALL the hotels you usually stay at and ask about pool conditions before booking. If you are an MGM “Pay To Park” Resorts or Caesars Entertainment customer, you may want to ask which (if any) stay open and choose to book the properties that keep a pool open.
Don’t be fooled when you leave your hotel at 3:30 PM without a jacket because it seems so nice out and the sun is warming up your skin. If you are going to be out for a few hours, you’re going to start hating yourself as you brave the increasing chill throughout the evening. This is also important for of you who are from cold climates and wear shorts any time it is above 55: Ya… that won’t feel so good in front of Bellagio Fountains with the wind blowing the cold spray your way at 10 PM.
