Do you book your Las Vegas trips in the summer when it is boiling hot outside, or do you go during the golden months, which is typically between March and May? Perhaps you are a holiday aficionado, so you like to venture to Vegas during the main holidays (spoiler alert: you are not alone).
While booking trips to Vegas is a subjective matter (it truly depends on the person), if you are looking to have the most fun possible (why wouldn’t you be?), then you will do your darnedest to book your next trip during one of the weekends below.
You. Will. Not. Regret. It.
Without further ado, here are the best weekends to visit Vegas if you are trying to maximize your fun.
Spring Break … Forever
If you are looking to save money on things like plane tickets and hotel prices, then you would be doing yourself a huge favor by booking during some random weekend in the winter.
However, if you are trying to channel your inner Frank The Tank, and take a page out of your college playbook, then there is no better time to venture to Vegas than spring break.
Cinco de Mayo
Not only are there plenty of bars and restaurants (you might have heard) to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Vegas, but this holiday also takes place right around Fight Weekend.
If you are a fan of the big fight (how awesome was the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao bout?!), then you have to spend this monster weekend in Vegas. It’s one of the best when it comes to pure entertainment — to say the least.
Memorial Day Weekend just so happens to be jam-packed with crazy events and the best of times — if you celebrate it in Las Vegas. The best part? These amazing times can be had on a yearly basis.
If you are looking to take your three-day weekend to the ultimate level this Memorial Day, then Vegas will surely welcome you with open arms. This is the perfect way to kick off your summer. Vegas. Memorial Day Weekend. Yeah, see you there.
4th Of July
If you can withstand the heat (we’re talking triple digits here), then 4th of July is one of the best weekends — well, when it falls on a weekend, that is — to visit the one and only Las Vegas.
Not only are the prices for tickets and hotels typically cheaper when the temperatures are blazing hot, but Vegas knows how to throw one heck of a party during America’s birthday, if you will.
The First Weekend Of March Madness
There are so many reasons why you should book your next Vegas trip for the first weekend of the NCAA tournament (aka March Madness).
Here are some of those reasons: (1) The Big Dance is arguably the best time to be a sports fan, and Vegas is loaded with TVs to watch all of the madness. (2) People love to bet on the tournament, and there is no better place to bet on sports than Vegas (the Mandalay Bay Sports Book is legendary). (3) The first weekend of March Madness takes place during spring break season. (4) It doesn’t happen every year, but this year, the first weekend of the NCAA tournament will not only be celebrating hoops but St. Patrick’s Day as well (it falls on a Friday in 2017).
Need we say more?
No matter where you are in the country (or world for that matter), New Year’s Eve is always one of the biggest parties of the year, and that is especially the case when it happens to fall on a weekend.
Combine that with Vegas and the good times will surely be rolling all weekend long. If you haven’t seen the strip on New Year’s Eve, you haven’t lived.
Super Bowl Weekend
Football Sundays and Vegas go together like peanut butter and jelly, so it’s no surprise that Super Bowl weekend is one of the most fun to visit Vegas. Gamblers from all over the world rejoice in the prop betting paradise. Who among us hasn’t placed a bet on the National Anthem at the Super Bowl?
If you can’t make it to the game itself, Vegas is not a bad consolation prize.
To be frank with you, there isn’t a bad time to visit Las Vegas. It is considered one of the most entertaining places on the planet. Not to mention, there are many different types of Vegas. Luckily, you get to pick the type of Vegas you want to experience every time you venture to Sin City.
