Just wanted to say Hi to everyone! New member here from Montreal, Québec, Canada. Im planning a surprise visit to Vegas for my wife's 40th Birthday. We are heading down on the 12th of Aug and staying until the 16th (Monday to Friday) The flight is picked, hotel is reserved (The Cosmopolitain with view of the fountain) I picked those dates as it was the week before the kids go back to school, so it will be easier for people to keep them and baby sit them. THEN... I happen to google "Weather in vegas in August" What did I just do?! I picked the worst time to go to Vegas! From what I am reading my face is going to melt! Montreal is known for some heat waves, with temperatures touching close to 91°F, and with the humidex 104°F. But i just dont know if the dry heat will be that much different than the humid heat of Montreal? I had plans on renting a convertible while there, but apparently that would be like sticking a blow dryer in my face full blast?! I have OH so many questions! I don't know where to start! Can you rent a Convertible in the summer or that is just crazy? Will it be much more bearable up near Hoover Damn? Would like to spend time at Lake Mead in the day time, can that help us? Golfing in the early mornings in August? Is that a BIG NO? Walking anytime from Noon to 5pm on the strip is not a good idea? I know I have much reading to do and that probably my questions will be answered, but in the mean time I am freaking out a bit!
