When to fly?
Las Vegas is a year-round destination. Autumn and winter are good times to travel as the weather is cooler and more pleasant. It is also when many travellers book their flights. New Year's celebrations are world-renowned so if you're planning to party in Las Vegas for New Year's it's best to book flights and hotels in advance. Las Vegas is also a big business conference and expo site so check ahead if any conferences are taking place when you plan your trip. Hotels and flights can be more expensive if there is an international conference taking place. Other busy times of the year in Las Vegas are Memorial Day Weekend (last Monday in May), July 4, Labor Day Weekend (first Monday in September) and Spring Break (March/April).
Summer in the desert is hot and the Las Vegas Strip is no exception. Thankfully, the hotels and casinos are air-conditioned so visitors can seek relief from the desert heat. If you plan to travel to Las Vegas in the summertime, bring light clothes and plenty of sunscreen. It's hot and humid, but it might be the best time to find cheap flights to Las Vegas and discounted Las Vegas hotel and resort rates.

For travellers with a need for speed, NASCAR Weekend is surely not to be missed. The annual auto-racing weekend, in particular the Sprint Cup, always attracts huge crowds, including both locals and those flying in from farther afield. This event takes place in early March and it should be noted that accommodation needs to be booked well in advance.
During late April, beer lovers from all over descend on Sunset Park for the Great Vegas Festival of Beer. Nevada breweries, as well as national based breweries, come together for this annual one day event. If beer isn't your drink of choice, you're sure to enjoy gastropub food from a variety of eateries, whilst listening to local and regional musicians.
The city's Mexican community comes out in force, in late April/early May, to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle of Puebla in 1862. Mexicans come together and show their pride with mariachi bands, fireworks, all-day dancing and traditional food. Head to one of the many Mexican restaurants and bars or The Fremont Street Experience for an event with added extras, such as, comedy acts and music performances.
Las Vegas. Just saying those two words evokes images of Elvis impersonators, flamboyant showgirls and sounds like “cha –ching”. Nevada's largest city attracts people from all over the world to book flights to Las Vegas and promises an experience like no other. The city is home to some of the wackiest themed hotels and resorts in the world, from acrobats performing in the lobby to rooms built inside a pyramid.
The first thing travellers disembarking their flights will notice is the bright neon signs that line the Strip; a distraction from what the city really has to offer. So look beyond the flashing lights and you’ll be amazed to find world-class museums, botanical gardens, Venetian canals, even a miniature version of the Eiffel Tower.
While exercise might be the last thing on people’s minds while visiting Vegas, outdoor enthusiasts might feel a little confined after spending a day in a casino. If that’s the case then the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area is great for hiking or climbing, while Lake Mead provides plenty of water sports and a 550-mile shoreline.
