Winter Fun in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is fun any time of year… even the winter. Despite popular belief, it’s not always sunny in Las Vegas, so it’s a good idea to look for other things to do. While temperatures in the day rarely drop below the 50’s, it does mean that lying around the pool is not an option. You can wait for the pools to open in spring, or have fun with one of Vegas’ fun winter activities. Las Vegas offers plenty to do in the winter months.
