When is the best time to visit Las Vegas?
If you’re waving goodbye to Manchester for a trip to sunny Las Vegas, the best time to go is either March to May, or September to November – better known as spring and fall. During these times the weather is at its best for exploring, because it’s neither too hot nor too cool. But September is also one of the more expensive times to visit so, if you’re looking for cheap flights to Las Vegas, consider visiting in January when fares tend to be cheaper. This is winter in Nevada, so visitor numbers dwindle and there’s less competition on flights.
