    Curious to see what is everyone's favorite time to go to Vegas. Pretty open question.

    I like May and September usually. Pools are open at that time, and college kids are usually in school at that point, so you have less of the Vegas first timers who just can't handle Vegas.

    I'm really fond of late October. The weather is perfect and the pools are still open. It just seems like a more laid back vibe at that time.

    I love either mid March during March Madness or right before summer. I am headed there in 1 week for a bach party so I will let you know how early February is. I am thinking kinda slow for Vegas and hoping I can sweet talk keeping my suite the entire trip

    Having been there every month more than once, October is definitely my favorite – at least as far as weather is concerned. Then again, it's my favorite time of year everywhere in the northern hemisphere! For pool time, May through Sept. is good, with mid-December for the thinnest crowds. Overall, the time of year hardly matters!

    I have gone three times a year for the past few years, always at the end of April, July 4th week, and the beginning or third week of September. The end of September is great, but I really have come to like the end of April/beginning of May - the pools are open, it is warm enough to wear shorts during the day and the evenings are crisp and cool.

    May - just before Memorial Day. Early June. Last week of September. Evening of the 25th through 29th of December. 1st week of January. Almost always get free rooms at those times and the town seems a little less crowded.

    later, GVJ

    I'd have to say late September / Early October
    Kids are in school.
    Weather is still nice enough to hang out at a pool
    You can walk down the strip without melting.
    Football and baseball games to bet on.

    I love Easter Weekend in Vegas. It's usually warm and if you do not have any family visting it is a slow and inexpensive weekend for hotels.
    And if you do Buffets they always have Easter buffets everywhere....

    Our use to be favorite time was July, August and September. We went to get away from the heat. At that time, we didn't have AC in the house so it was much cooler in the car and casinos. Long ago.

    I've been there in June twice and can honestly say I like it better during the "cold months". Never been in a Vegas pool and I'd rather wear a kight jacket or sweatshirt and be able to drink my arse off than be so hot that I pass out from dehydration.

    Call me crazy but I love the heat, so May-October is my favorite time. I don't like to have to wear a jacket and pants.

    I really enjoy May, almost perfect weather. Very comfortable. I want to try July and October. I have been in August and I literally thought I might faint from all the walking, so I am assuming July would be similar....but I still must know! Many board members rave about October plus it's my birthday month so I definitely want to check it out.

    Many years ago when we had young children, we went in April and October because they were in school and it was easier to get away. Occasionally, one of our trips would slide to May or November. This is still our schedule, every April and October, now because of the LV weather mostly. We don't do HOT! Whenever we have taken a third trip per year, we still go around those two months.
