    hello! We are traveling to Vegas the beginning of June and will be staying for the week. We plan on spending a couple hours each day sitting at slot machines. Our local casinos are very chilly so we always take a sweater, do you suggest we walk around Vegas carrying a sweater or just deal with it? What do others do?

    It depends on where you are. On the strip, the ceilings are high (temperature cooler) and downtown the casinos are low.(temperature higher).

    It also depends on the casino. There are typically warmer and cooler places inside each casino.

    I'm always freezing in the casino. I wear a light cardigan or sweater with a tank top under it. Then just tie it around my waist when I'm in warmer areas.

    The casinos do get chilly especially in the evening hours. I usually keep a thin jacket or long sleeved shirt that I can fold up and keep in my purse or around my waist depending what I ma wearing.

    I always carry or wear either a big shirt or a light jacket or sweater in LV casinos. Not as bad as it maybe was in the 1990s but they are usually annoyingly cool.

    If you drink more, you tend to get warmer :)

    If you're the kind of person who thinks to ask this question, I suggest you take that sweater.

    I should add, I mean no disrespect whatsoever... I'm comfortable in shorts in a 20 degree blizzard... but I know folks who are very sensitive to both heat and cold and are constantly mindful of it. Most importantly... have a BLAST on your visit!!!

    the casinos don't seem to be quite as cold as they used to be in the summer. but it is sill an issue for me. I hate being cold and it makes by body hurt. it will cause me to leave a casino. not that they care about this low-roller. sometimes i will tie a jacket around my waist. I spend most of my time downtown, and as DaiLun said, it is not as bad. like I always say at work, they must have some hot fat-ass in charge of the climate controls that wants to make everyone else suffer.

    If you plan to sit 2-3 hours playing at the same machine/casino, I'd keep a sweater or light shoulder shrug with you.
    Temperatures can vary drastically within a casino.
    If you plan to casino hop quite a bit, you may want to leave the sweater behind since a) it will be warm/hot outside, and b) when moving frequently from machine to machine you won't notice cool temperatures as much as when sitting at one spot for hours.

    I always keep/wear a sweater in Vegas - Anything below 75 is cold to me :D

    Hope you have a great trip to Vegas

    You can always spot my wife and myself in Vegas during Aug with the 110+ heat.
    We are the ones walking around with jackets because the casinos are so damn cold.

    I've never been "too cold" in any casino.
    Of course, the first thing I do when I get to my room each trip is to set the thermostat down to 65 or so...yes, even in the winter.

    Additionally, I always found the Cirq theaters to be colder then the casino. It's probably for the performers but some of the shows are water based - who the hell wants to jump / fall into cold water? :(

    In general I find Vegas casinos too hot in winter and too cold in summer. My wife ALWAYS has some kind of jacket or sweater with her.
